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.
