The Stunt Must Impress
23 September 2007 | by xenatorresSee all my reviews

"ER" is known for some heavy episodes – even some impressive stunt work for big accidents, but "The Show Must Go On" was probably the episode with the most ambitious and dangerous stunt of the series.

The main danger came simply from having a large number of stunt people in a small space, all on wires – the risk to them is getting the wires tangled. It speaks to how much planning had to go into the stunt.

Also impressive was guest star Wilkinson, who actually performed her own stunt (you can check out the behind the scenes footage of her performing the stunt on her myspace page).

Brilliantly shot by John Wells, this was one of the best stunts I've seen on television.
