  • Quite avarage...

    6.4
    This episode - it was somehow.. It had some great moments but mostly it was quite average.. nothing too special. On Neela's case - her hard time of start, it reminded me Elizabeth after she get that place in surgery and had to start from the start. And it was hard on Neela too.



    It was mostly, I think, about Gates. He is a new guy and they have to get him in. And the ending, some talking with Neela - that really worked for that direction. And maybe he is going to be great char.. at the moment I cannot say that.moreless
  • Not the best of ER episodes, but being ER it's always enjoyable to watch.

    9.0
    Yay! Glenn Plummer is back as Timmy, the receptionist! Great to see a familiar face from "old ER" returning. Hopefully some more will show up in future episodes.

    We see some new people on the ER staff for the first time. Will they be our new favourites in the days to come or will we dislike them? That remains to be seen, but they certainly can't beat our Abby and our Luka!

    Nice to see Abby with little Joe, but there was not enough screen time for Maura & Goran this time. Nevertheless, this episode gives a foundation for the rest of the season.moreless
  • Rerun again last night. I wonder when they will stop with the reruns and show a new episode.

    9.0
    -> Benny and Jimmy - love is love, no matter how straight or gay is the couple.

    -> Benny - John Mahoney is simply great - perfomed the role the most elegant and simple way.

    -> Gates - you do have to learn a lot about humility, young man !



    Philosphy -> love is to care more aout the loved one than to your own loss feeling and let him go when ti is time for that.moreless
  • we are introduced to new carachters, there´s tension between gates and pratt, it´s a different kind of episode not showing luka or abby

    8.5
    i think this episode was ok, although it´s not my favorite, i like the new carachters and all the new positions in the ER: Kerry returning as an attending, Pratt as a new attending and dealing with new carachter Tony Gates. i liked the way they focused on Gates and the way we were introduced to his secret life. even though luka and abby didn´t show up at all it was a nice episode. i like Kerry returning to the ER because she looked so much relaxed. i would like to see more carachter development of ray because i think he has been put behind everyone elsemoreless
  • Focus on the patients instead of Abby and Luka for a change. A great start for the new storylines this season.

    8.8
    With the Abby-Luka-baby story closed, it's time to start a new season, with all the characters fitting in their new roles. This episode was manly about the older gay couple, Pratt and Gates. As much as I love Luka and Abby, I missed seeing an episode dedicated to the patients. I tought Jim and Bennet Cray's story very nicely written (not and easy subject) and I loved the new attending Pratt dealing with Gates. Even tough this episode had already happened in season 9 (only Pratt was Gates and Carter was Pratt), I loved the changes Pratt went through since then, and how now he deals the situation with such power. And I'm actually starting to like Gates.



    Other than that, this episode was filled with very nice moments. Abby with baby Joe in the park was adorable. Kerry back as an attending, not knowing how the ER works, was funny but a little sad. Wonderful to see Kerry back!!!! I loved the humor Morris brings into the ER and the new intern Hope seems really nice (I only hope they'll take her faith more seriously than this). And Timmy's back as a desk clerk! I missed him! And Neela started her new life as a surgeon. I can't wait to see her as a surgeon. Only thing I really didn't like was the new chief-resident Crenshaw. Mean and bald. Almost a Romano, but without his perfect sarcasm. This season is amazing till now, can't wait for the next one!moreless
