  • I liked the plot the first time I saw it... when Dr. Romano brought his dog in for medical care.

    5.5
    After several episodes to start this season that indicated the show was improving a bit after some off-kilter seasons, they then opened the November sweeps period with this stink-bomb of an episode. And now not only are the ER writers recycling plots, like the much-hyped giant catastrophe coming up this month, but they're also recycling bad plots.

    For the love of God, an animal brought to the hospital for medical care once again? It was barely tolerable/believable the first time, but now it stretches all credibility beyond the breaking point. Seeing them work together on a chimpanzee, you actually feel embarassed for Maura Tierney and Parminder Nagra, imagining they were doing their lines while at the same time thinking of frantically calling their agents to find some way off the sinking ship before ER drowns their careers. And then having the chimp-healthcare montage with "Coconut" playing on the soundtrack? That may have been the worst moment in the history of the show.

    Again this season, the plotline alluded to by the episode title gets nearly dropped in the final act, never coming to any real, definitive conclusion. Instead, it falls by the wayside as we're expected to believe a medical doctor is too stupid to knowing he's sleeping with a 14-year-old, and see more on Pratt's absentee father, which feels more and more like trying to use Danny Glover's name to get viewers than an effort to create an interesting plot.

    Hopefully the show will return to its early season form quickly, because episodes like this are what I fear have already driven many viewers into the arms of Without a Trace.moreless
  • They did not do this? They did.. really?

    7.4
    Oh.. quite nothing episode as most of the time there is monkey on the focus - ok, it was quite a lot of fun first, so it saved much of that episode for me and turned the monkey (sorry.. not monkey) storyline enjoyable. But there were other things I did not liked - like Eve and Sam. They really did, after 12 years (I think she had worked there before.. so even more years) just fire her? She and Malice have been the only characters from the first season we have left and now one of them is gone. Lately with Eve and Clemente - it looks like again - new winds are blowing and weird, I never like that. There have been quite big changes before... and they have never been to the good.. always to the other side.moreless
  • Minkey bussnes in the ER.

    9.0
    I love how at first, Abby didn't like the idea of the baby monkey like Neela, but at the end but of them were very hook with him.



    I can't believe that Ray was having all the sex with a 14 years old girl!!, ok i admit she look older but anyway poor him, and then to find out she wasn't only having sex with him but with other guys!!!



    Poor Sam having to fired Haleh, when Haleh have help so much to Sam and the reason they gave her because she was working to much hours that was insane. But it was all of Eve evil plan. Hate her soo much.



    I think that Pratt while make up woth his dad, but no, now he's don't only angry with him but wurh his mother too.moreless
  • pretty good

    9.3
    I liked this better the second time around as well , the story of the guy, building the dream house, the firing off Haleh, the little monkey, was really sad me being an animal lover I felt bad for the mother Chimp so bad, Clemente endeared himself to me in this episode, so I tend to more lenient to his plight in later ones, only thing missing Luka!
  • Just average

    5.0
    An average episode.



    The chimpanse storyline was a bit much. Too cute, too odd. Frankly if I were a patient at that hospital I would be furious if I found out that I had to wait so much longer for treatment because they had a monkey in there. A monkey which belongs with a vet. Just a stupid storyline IMO.



    And I honestly don't get why Haleh is mad at Sam. She made it sound as if Sam took the job to earn money from firing Haleh. She took the job for other reasons, even if money was one of them, but she didn't exactly sell Haleh out. I'll be sad to see Haleh leave though, I hope she finds her way back. But in all honesty, I like Eve. She's got working morals, she's not afraid of being the bad guy when she needs to be and I enjoy seeing her put herself in respect even with the docs. They seem to do as she tells them to do.



    Oh, and Dubenko-the-robot was a fun touch. Especially when Clemente locked the robot in. Too bad I don't like Leland Orser...
