First Class TV
4 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

They've started a re-run of the ER series here in the UK, and although I watched them all originally, I've been sucked into the ER atmosphere yet again. Just as enjoyable the best part of 20 years on, the one scary thing being how much younger the original characters look.

I'm looking forward to seeing this episode again. Not only did ER blow every other medical drama completely out of the water, but I would say this episode was some of the best television drama I have ever seen. You simply cannot tear your eyes away from the scenes involving Anthony Edwards and the 'night from hell' he has to go through. Spellbinding and tragic, deeply moving.

From writing, performing, directing, in every facet of the ER series, the only way to describe it is 'First Class' in every department, and this episode the jewel in the crown.
