ER - The Most Emotional Episode
2 May 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow,I don't know how any fan of ER could not break down in tears to this episode, (male or female). I have never seen a movie or TV show that was this much of an emotional roller-coaster. And being a father of a little girl, I think it hit home just that much more.

Mark Greene takes his daughter to Hawaii to have a last shot at teaching her some of life's important lessons, knowing that any day now would be his last. To top it off the song playing in the final few minutes of the show, (Somewhere over the rainbow/What a wonderful world), really just nails the exact feel to the episode. I don't want to ruin the experience of this episode, so I won't elaborate on it, just watch it for yourself.

This is one of the best ER episodes, (Love, Labour, Lost), probably being the best. If you have never even watched ER, this one would probably show you just how important the show has been over the 15 years.
