The End of ER

I can't let the series finale of ER come and go without leaving my comments. Leo and I have watched ER since the first episode due to our love of all things from Michael Crichton. The other interesting thing about those times, is we were newlyweds. We've been married for almost 15 years (this October is our anniversary) and ER has been on TV for all those 15 years. There were times that we stopped watching the show as it got a bit boring, but the past two seasons we haven't missed a single show thanks to the DVR capabilities on our cable box. Even though Michael Crichton has been as involved with the show since the beginning, it seems like a fitting time for the series to end since he passed away recently. This spring will be the release of the last novel by him and I don't know how I'll get Leo to read anything since I was at least guaranteed that every time one of these novels came out we'd both devour it. We'll try to watch the new TV show on during this time slot as well, but I'm not sure if we'll really like it.

I loved ER when it first came out but it lost some of its allure when Dr. Green left. And when they started blowing up the ER entrance at least once a season.

We watched ER for a couple years when George Clooney was on, but it was too much like going to work.
The Mentalist on Tuesday night is enjoyable.

I've watched ER since the beginning as well and am really going to miss it. That episode did not give me closure.

I know this is a bit sad and pathetic but I cried at the end.

I have been watching from the beginning as well and it seems strange it is done.

I watched it for the first few years.. I miss the old Thursday nights of Friends & ER!!! We recently downgraded to basic cable & I am missing the DVR option- that was very cool! Take Care!

I was so sad to see ER go as well I have watched it from the beginning, and I remember when I was in nursing school and I would recognize the vocabulary and diagnosis I felt so smart. It is hard to say good bye to it, I still love watching the old episodes- hopefully something great will come out soon!

Hey my DH and I will celebrate our fifteenth anniversary this summer. We simply cannot believe it's been fifteen years and we're still childless! Geez. We're feeling really really old...
I used to love ER too!
