Storyline

Mark's wife arrives in the ER with the news that she has passed her bar exams but several members of the staff interrupt their intimate celebration. Greene treats an elderly woman whose husband isn't ready to let her go. It's been eight weeks since Hathaway's attempted suicide, but Doug Ross has yet to bring himself to visit the woman he went out with for two years. Susan Lewis saves a newborn who is brought into the ER choking. She also argues with the psychiatric attending who refuses to admit a patient suffering from dementia. Carter finds himself having to care for a group of German tourists who are suffering from food poisoning. He also treats a young flirt with a rash. Benton treats a recent surgery patient and finds his correct diagnosis overturned by the man's physician. Susan Lewis treats a family struck by a drunk driver. The husband and daughter will survive but there is little hope for the woman. The drunk driver is also brought in suffering from only a few scratches. Written by garykmcd

Day one Episode 2
21 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I like this one as it follows on from the pilot episode. With Mark being the doctor woken up. This time it is Susan Lewis who is woken up by a nurse. More chaos and character building in this one from the pilot.

It's great how each of the characters have different issues they have to face and overcome. You are kind of drawn into them. With Carter having to learn the ropes being a med student. Lewis is having issues trying to get help with a patient with dementia. You also get to see the family life of the Dr in this show and how much time and effort they put into it and struggling with people at home.

I also like how the show includes the background characters. it's not just about the main characters. Everyone in the hospital interacts with the main characters. Not like some shows were the 2nd characters are ignored sometimes. I always wondered how they found so many extras for this show.
