I Left When Dr. Mark Greene Died

TVI find it strange that ER is only wrapping up now. ER was appointment viewing for me until 2002 when Dr. Mark Greene died. After eight years of viewing, and with many of the regulars now gone, that seemed like a good time to say goodbye.

Seven years later, that damn show is still airing new episodes. It turns out I barely caught half the series. I understand a bunch of the old cast is showing up in these final few episodes, so I'm recording the show on my new PVR.

I'd like to see how this old favourite ends.

I couldn't help but chuckle when I read this header. Although I've been a loyal fan since the beginning (living vicariously), I'm amazed it's enjoyed such longevity. It seems they've run out of ideas and the passing of Michael seems fitting to close the ER doors. Last night's episode wasn't too shabby; it felt like a movie 30 mins. in and was touching, suspenseful and heartwrenching (what ER does so well), with that signature caliber of acting. But you gotta know when to call it.

I agree. I started with the very first episode and watched them all (usually live from 10-11pm) but then one I had children the 10-to-11 hour was out of the question and even if I did record it (VCR) I never had a chance to get to it. I'd say it was when Mark Greene died I was finished with even catching the occasional one. I have started watching the last 10 and even though I now have the last three weeks to catch up on, I know they're calling me and I can't wait to see how they 'call it'.

The whole story existed in the mind of a young autistic boy with a snow globe.

I swear, I almost wrote that.

I didn't see last night's ER but did they waste four minutes showing George Clooney's Dr. Ross character try to parallel park?

Yes, the Sopranos had a shitty ending. And Sex And The City are doing their SECOND movie.

And Stafford, if you're ever around anywhere and you hear a phone start ring-toning to the theme of Sex and the City... It's likely me.
