One of the worst ever episodes
24 April 2016 | by darkness_visibleSee all my reviews

ER is my all time favourite TV show, but this episode was TERRIBLE. I was just about squirming in my seat with embarrassment at the horrible mismanagement - poor direction, dreary story, and most of all, awful music. But if the artistic intent was to provoke the audience into committing suicide to make it stop then they scored 10 out of 10.

The pre-title montage of couples in bed was grotesque. The political commentary was ham-fisted. The "angelic" background music made me want to scream, as did the ordination ceremony music.

In fairness, even the best talents don't get everything right every time - but it seemed like in this episode they got nothing right all the time.
