The episode ER ended
28 November 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

...or at least where it should have ended with Doug Ross laying flowers on Mark's grave...I accidentally stumbled over the song that was played in the ending yesterday and it took me a while to find out where I heard it before...a weird episode...pretty human...I didn't see all episodes so I won't say it's the best, but it's definitely one to remember

Anyway, after that the show died slowly...with Carter leaving the show it was finally over...I have no idea how it managed survived over the years...when I occasionally tune in I see Abby and Luka over 90% arguing about nothing and everything...nice show till that day...RiP Mark ;)
