Show Summary

ER follows the medical personnel and patients in the emergency room of Chicago's fictional County General Hospital. Created by best-selling author Michael Crichton ("Jurassic Park") and produced by John Wells ("The West Wing"), Christopher Chulack ("Third Watch"), David Zabel ("JAG"), and R. Scott Gemmill ("Jonny Zero"), the Emmy Award-winning series has completed fourteen seasons as one of television's highest-rated dramas. The doctors and nurses of County's ER confront the daily challenges of a busy urban hospital, including overcrowded waiting rooms, staffing shortages, and the impact of life-and-death decisions. While they teach the next generation of doctors, each must tackle the demands of their personal lives, at times unsuccessfully.

    It's really, really, really difficult for women to land nominations for writing and directing Emmys, in either comedy or drama. In fact, it's safe to say that the Emmys have almost entirely failed to recognize female writers and directors over the last three decades.

    • Enjoying the DVDs

      10
      I like Seasons 1-4; some episodes more than others (I am not enjoying the 'Ambush' episode right now), but overall I really enjoyed those seasons. I watched beyond that but lost interest when all the old cast was gone and, from what I remember, they started to focus on a very narrow group of characters whom I didn't care for or about.





      I liked the soup-to-nuts characters of the earlier seasons from the gruff, older chief of staff to the younger staff just starting out.





      I think my favorite season is the first, with the original cast--nothing added or subtracted yet. I was amazed when I started watching the DVDs that so much of what I remembered was from Season One.moreless
