Michael Crichton has created a medical drama that chronicles life and death in a Chicago hospital emergency room. Each episode tells the tale of another day in the ER, from the exciting to the mundane, and the joyous to the heart-rending. Frenetic pacing, interwoven plot lines, and emotional rollercoastering is used to attempt to accurately depict the stressful environment found there. This show even portrays the plight of medical students in their quest to become physicians.Written by

Staff seem to invariably pronounce the last name of Luka Kovac like "KOH-vahtch," whereas his own pronunciation of it is more like it rhymes with Dutch. Bear in mind that Goran Visnjic who plays the role is a native Croat and speaker of Croatian, just like the character. See more »
On at least four occasions during the series characters refer to LVN's (licensed vocational nurses). Only Texas and California use that designation. Other states, including Illinois, designate this level of nursing Practice as LPN (licensed practical nurse). See more »
The life and times of doctors at Cook County General Hospital, Chicago.
The best medical drama ever to be aired! It's fast paced, emotional, and suspenseful. The cast is unbeatable. Composed of some of the best actors and actresses Hollywood has ever seen including George Clooney. The show is extremely realistic down to the smallest detail, yet easy enough to understand. There is a lot of drama, but also some comic relief. The characters are all unique and different, but they work well together on stage. The plots and sub-plots are very diversified, but they all tie in somehow. The writing and coordination is incredible. I would recommend this show to everyone, it sure is a change from the warm fuzzies of television!
