Storyline

Michael Crichton has created a medical drama that chronicles life and death in a Chicago hospital emergency room. Each episode tells the tale of another day in the ER, from the exciting to the mundane, and the joyous to the heart-rending. Frenetic pacing, interwoven plot lines, and emotional rollercoastering is used to attempt to accurately depict the stressful environment found there. This show even portrays the plight of medical students in their quest to become physicians. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

Casting director John Frank Levey originally suggested Michael Beach for the role of Dr. Peter Benton. John Wells felt Beach didn't complete the ensemble and chose Eriq La Salle instead. Beach eventually appeared on ER as Al Boulet. Beach would also later be cast as a regular Third Watch (1999), another Wells-produced series. See more »

Goofs

Doctors and nurses frequently wear their stethoscopes backwards - with the binaural pointed toward the back of the head rather than the face - while listening to heart or lung sounds. In reality, this would not allow the listener to hear ANYTHING, as sound would be transmitted into the skin at the back of the outer ear rather than down the ear canal. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Greg Pratt: [looking at a snapshot of Jake] Nah, boxers would stick out more.
Neela Rasgotra: It could be tighty whiteys.
Frank: Thong.
Dr. Ray Barnett: Hey, maybe Abby could settle this.
Nurse Chuny Marquez: Abby, boxers or briefs?
Abby Lockhart: Actually, he goes commando.

Excellent drama, incredibly thrilling.
29 April 1999 | by (Bamberg, Germany) – See all my reviews

It took me some time to get hooked by E.R.. It was only during the preparations for my exams that I discovered the daily reruns of E.R., and after some five episodes I decided to have my lunch break every day when E.R. was running.

I really love the show today, especially because of the strong, realistic characters and the thrilling action in the hospital (where time is always running low). I think this is one of the best TV series ever made. Though the newer seasons were a little worse than the first three ones (what a tragedy when Doctor Lewis left, sniff), it is still worth watching.
