Did You Know?


In some of the exterior scenes, we see Carter and Benton walking outside in their surgical scrubs, covered in sweat. This is real sweat as it was filmed during a heatwave in Chicago. Even though just prior to the scene, both actors had been in air conditioning, the minute they stepped outside, they started sweating profusely. This caused problems for Noah Wyle, whose character was suntanned after a vacation. His tan (which was in fact make-up) kept dripping off. See more »


When Dr. Lewis is getting ready to shock the patient having a heart attack just before the ceiling collapses and the air conditioner repair man falls through it, the orange AED pads on the heart attack victim change positions in between shots. See more »


Dr. Mark Greene: Are the meetings always this eventful?
Carol Hathaway: This one was kinda boring. No-one tried to take a swing at each other.

Welcome Back Carter! (#2.1)
26 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And the new season is starting. We are back and so is Carter. The episode is a bit more slow paced, but sure not for him. He comes running straight from the airport with his bags and a great tan. It also seems like this year will be tough on him, but it is great to see him work again with Peter.

And we have some new 3rd year med students. It was pretty funny how Dr.. Greene put them into a room to read text books and forgot them there afterwards...Thee new girl will probably be a bigger character, I didn't remember her name yet but she seems to be the position of the last year's Carter.
