ER: The Complete Seasons 1 - 10
I first wrote E.R. back in 1974 as a record of my experiences as a medical student in a hospital emergency room. But it was not until the fall of 1994, 20 years later, that these stories appeared as a new television series. That must surely be the longest creative gestation in modern television, but it was worth it. Audiences found the show to be fast paced, fresh and real, and it drew a loyal following from its very first episode. - Michael Crichton, June 2003
A stricken newborn, a 9-year-old pyromaniac, unimaginably mangled accident victims, a Santa-like toymaker, a nude singer of show tunes. - you never know what you'll find in the ER. But the thing you're sure to find is the excellence that makes Season 2 the Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Drama Series. All 22 episodes plus bonus features comprise this 4-disc collection that's a must-see for fans of the show and fans of great drama.
The 22-episode triple Emmy Award-winning ER Season Three rolls out in a 6-disc set featuring exciting extras. Greene (Anthony Edwards) is the victim of a violent attack. Ross (George Clooney) tries to get his personal life in order. Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) takes the MCAT, Benton (Eriq La Salle) takes on the toughest surgical elective and Carter (Noah Wyle) takes a bold step toward a new career path. These and other stories overlap the day-in, day-out turmoil of life on the frontlines of medicine. That's whad'ya got.
A new face enters the mix at Chicago's County General: Dr. Elizabeth Corday (Alex Kingston) comes across the pond from England to work as a surgical fellow. And there are plenty of new challenges ranging from the personal (Greene tries to patch things up with his father in San Diego) to the professional (Ross puts his career on the line to save the life of a seven-month-old baby boy), from the romantic (Hathaway can't commit to Ross) to the rowdy (two injured flying Elvis impersonators are gurneyed to into the trauma rooms). Drop in today. No appointment necessary!
The door swings both ways at the ER - eager med student Lucy Knight arrives. Her mentor for her first rotation is Carter, who knows well the pitfalls of being a student, but perhaps isn't so adept a teacher. Also: Benton has a day-in, day-out patient on his hands when he learns his young son is deaf: Boulet faces a new health crisis; Weaver is passed over for chief; Corday and Greene find unexpected romance; and Ross defies hospital protocols in his treatment of a dying child. The result: Ross goes. Hathaway stays. But will news that she's pregnant with his child change his mind?
It's always rush hour at the ER. Each day - each moment - brings new challenges, triumphs and losses. No one ever expected those losses would include one of County General's talented med students.
The gurneys keep rolling in a superlative Season 7 that includes Abby's reunion with her mother, a turbulent woman who suffers from bipolar disorder. Excitement, drama, suspense - the doctors are on call.
Excitement. Suspense. joy. Grief. All in a heartbeat. Twenty two of the best, most compelling hours on television unfold in this powerful, series changing Season 8 of ER.
Challenges at work and at home overlap in the series that remains the right prescription for powerful entertainment. Carter's playful office love affair becomes a 24/7 crisis. Kovac's partying affects his performance. And be careful what you wish for, staffers.
Healing Is teamwork and science. Instant decisions and best guesses. Joy one moment, tragedy the next, 24/7 readiness. It is learning, always learning.
