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

Laura Innes and Noah Wyle tied as the series' longest-appearing cast members, having appeared in 13 out of 15 seasons. Innes' Dr. Kerry Weaver made her first appearance in Season 2, stayed on as a regular until the midpoint of Season 13, and appeared in two Season 15 episodes. Wyle's Dr. John Carter was a regular from the start of Season 1, left the regular cast in the Season 11 finale, had a multi-episode guest role in Season 12 (for a story set in Darfur), and returned for several Season 15 episodes. Both actors were in the series finale and had a few scenes together. See more »

As an 10 year devotee of ER, I can't agree with some of the posters. The first years of a show are often its best, that is true. Yes, I miss Dr. Greene something fierce, as I do George Clooney and Juliana Margulies. But for me, ER is still a compelling, emotional show, filled with good acting, great characters, drama, humor, a fast pace and lots of layers. It remains an interactive, nail-biting show. I look forward to each episode and the journey of each character. At a time of reality shows dominating the ratings, ER remains in the top ten, as it should.
The personnel change is to be expected, but most long-running shows experience that. I don't have the connection with some of the newer people as I did with the earlier actors. But hey, I still miss Chris Noth on Law & Order, too.
