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>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Doug Ross frequently hung his head low, appearing ashamed or thoughtful or privately amused, depending on the scene. This wasn't just an element of the character: George Clooney had taken to writing his lines on papers, sheets, and other props (especially that complicated medical terminology). See more »

Goofs

None of the doctors or nurses performs CPR correctly, but if done with straight arms and enough force to make a difference, it can (and often does) break the patient's ribs. Obviously it's better to go without a factually accurate portrayal of the procedure than to injure the actors in the name of realism. 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.
