  • Cops down..

    7.0
    Oh, this was weird episode. First their new boss of ER was not there and they were back on doing things the way they like and it was just one very crazy day with all kind of things going around - patients crashing and then waking up and then stable patients really crashing. A big mess.



    It also had some emotional side as Morris got some more char development and bad news.



    The new med student who has been year late, is nervous around Abby and later calls her out. Not very good storyline.



    What I did like was Neela and Joe.. the way those two.. and then Dubenko... it was very sweet of him to come and visit hermoreless
  • Good show.

    Sweetest scene: Joe spits food at Neela. - This is a nice little reminder of that lovely scene in "Tell me no secrets" (s13-10), when Luka is feeding Joe and tells him that "girls don't like it if you wear your food"! - Later Dubenko comes over for a visit and Joe takes his first step! Best scene: "The pre-meltdown scene". Abby is feeding cranky Joe, the babysitter can't come and Abby is freaking out, angry at Luka because he has left her alone. I so sympathize with her! Shame on you, Luka, for leaving her alone for so long! Luckily, Neela volunteers to babysit. Most awkward scene: Poor Grady is nervous around Abby, and at the end of the day he has plucked up enough courage to ask her out, but she tells him that she's married and sends him home.



    Saddest scene: Morris is cranky all day and the reason turns out to be that his father has just passed away. At the end of the day he tells Abby all about it and she conforts him.



    Good point: Pratt & Bettina talks about "faking" and he says "I'm not a mind reader". Good on you, Pratt, for acknowledging the right to say how you want to be trated and not to be taken for granted! This is an important principle, not only in the context implied in this scene, but in all human coexistence. We also find out that Jerry has moved to Alaska to become a bar owner. (In real life the actor moved on to "Men in trees" and the role as a bar owner in Alaska!)moreless
  • another ordinary day at County, great performance by Scott Grimes

    8.8
    yes, another ordinary day at the ER, but i kind of liked this episode better than last week´s, i have to say that it was refreshing to see Dr. Morris in a different storyline, i loved his perfomance in the whole episode specially in the last scene he has with Abby

    the whole neela and dubenko scenes were funny but a little boring i think

    also they need to improve in the ICU kid storyline so that it doesn´t become boring too, i liked the pratt and bettine situation, i also liked Dr. Grady´s perfomance specially with his scenes with Abby i think it was really funny when she told him she was marriedmoreless
  • Neela heals and the er is in chaos.

    9.0
    Anoth reason why this is my favorite show, this episode showed the Human side of Moris who struglles to get through the busiest shift without the chief around after learning that his father has passed away. Gates proves that he should be back in the ER with a diagnosis that others overlooked. We find Neela back from the hospital baby sitting for Abby while she recovers her almost fatal protest encounter. And then Gates family side shows again here when Sarah returns to his doorstep, he does the family thing in the end and tells her if she wants to live with him, she can't keep running away. How about abby and another crush this time an intern....kep it up this was the best of the 3 episodes so far.moreless
  • Here's why I still watch...

    7.5
    The Neela and Gates center storyline turned me off of much of last season. I fast forwarded through as much as I could. This may be part of the reason why I really enjoyed last night's episode. As per usual, I fast forwarded through Neela and Gates but, surprisingly, I liked watching Pratt and his girlfriend deal with "faking" it and Abby be the center of yet another crush. The latter was only acceptable because I like the new character addition to the staff. He reminds me of early Luka when Luka had a crush on Carol Hathaway but she was pretty much attached to Doug. Great recycling! The growing romance between the nurse and the cop...great...probably because the actor is so attractive. I was never a fan of her story either and didn't exactly gain respect for her when she shunted her kid off to boarding school. Anyway, her new beau has me warming up. The patient cases were also pretty hectic, exciting, heart-breaking.

    All in all, great episode.moreless
