    It had great sound editing and sound mixing.
  • Good Bye, Doug Ross

    9.7
    This episode marks somehow a end to one area of this great serie - Doug has been part of the team from the start and he really has given so much for the variety but now it is his time to leave.



    The episode is build up well - we have striking and urgent cases, taking majority of the episode, we have one of them injured - it always make audience to sympathize. We have some really great moments and character developments, superb presentations. The way Carol's char is played out - it really leaves me speechless. And the way the whole thing is solved, the meaning in words - I cried, I cannot lie. It was beautiful episode.moreless
  • Not quite as good as Part I, but Part II of the Storm is a nice compliment to George Clooney and his character of Doug Ross which he portrayed for 5 years. But seriously Mobalage?moreless

    9.7
    The Storm Part I focused almost entirely on Doug Ross in the somber set-up of his ongoing life and how his actions caused the Hospital and particularly Mark Green and Kerry Weaver great grief. Part II on the other hand is alot different. The first half of the episode is Greene saving the kids involved in a bus-crash which is pretty interesting but for the millions of fans watching the episode the question is where is Ross? Doug finally makes his debut as he stands near an unconscious Jeannie who got a concussion in the accident and soon calls 911 to arrive immediately but tries not to touch her because of her HIV. So Greene gets out of the car scene and brings an overbooking of ER patients, and after Doug brings Jeannie into the ER, Kerry tells him to not treat her. She goes as far as to tell Doug, "You won't treat any patients tonight!" Which practically ended all hopes of ER fans seeing Ross treat a patient but the episode sticks with the realistic view point of the ER. As the patients are treated and as Carter and Lucy talk about their relationship, Doug is treated by Carol and tells her he is planning to move to Seattle because everyone hates him. Which is pretty much true. She tells him she'll think about it. The episode then totally goes of course and focuses on Mobalage. Great focus on Mobalage but it's Clooney's last episode. Who do you think people want to see? Anyway after Mobalage is crying to himself in front of Carol and Weaver, Greene comes along to try and confront him since his wife came to the ER with a wound. The episode finally ends up with Doug walking in the ER halls, nobody saying goodbye or anything as he tells Carol to come with him. She refuses and in a tearjerker starts to cry that she won't have somebody to wake up next to, and Ross being the suave one kisses her and walks away. The last scene of the episode (If you count Ross only had 5 scenes in the entire episode) but despite this his last scene is his best as he and Greene drink bottles of beer staring at the Chicago Landmarks in the coldness of Chicago. After a brief conversation on Seattle vs. Chicago the two smile and Ross offers to shoot some hoops as they talk the scene fades out. Sadly this is the last full episode featuring Doug Ross and he leaves in Doug Ross fashion he wasn't the featured player in the episode but he was the soul that made the episode run. Still though great episode, but less Mobalage and more Ross!moreless
  • I cried during this episode.

    I cried when Doug left! It was very sad and Julianna played the role so well. She really got into it! This was one of my favorite episodes! Along with the first part of it. The bus crash was really sad too! even though no one died. This was a memorable episode!
  • A pretty great episode.

    9.6
    This episode is very busy. First a snow plow runs into a bus and there are 15 kids injured. Then Doug and Carol get in trouble because Doug helps a mother end the missery of a terminally ill child. Carol has to hand over her position as manager of the clinic so it stays open. Doug and Jennie get into a car accidnt and Jennie gets hurt badly. Carder and Lucy have sex and it speards around the ER. In the end Doug quits to move to seattle and asks Carol to come with him. She dosen't go with him in the end. This was a very dramadic episode and sad to see Doug go.moreless
