Doug Ross Takes Center Stage
22 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the previous episode Doug Ross was let go, his medical career in jeopardy and practically everyone in the ER somehow hating him. After taking shelter in his car during a heavy rainstorm, a boy comes up to him and tells him his brother is trapped between the river dam. Leave it up to Doug Ross to immediately rush into the situation and try and save the kid. As the Kid's brother dials for help, Ross tries to help the kid who is trapped behind a serious of metal bars. Barely remaining a float from drowning, Ross tries his best to help the kid but struggles at best. Even after Ross gets him out of the dam an ambulance and television crew arrive. Ross manages to save the kid and ends up taking the television helicopter back to County and after he arrives all soaked...Greene and the other Doctors help out and the kid is saved..Overall good episode, strong acting by George Clooney (he should have won an Emmy) and amazing intense action sequences. One of the Top 10 ER Episodes of all time.
