So long....

I'm literary still mourning the loss of my {FAVORITE} tv series "ER"... I am compeletely devastated. I haven't had the motivation to do anything except watch all the episodes over and over again on DVD's, Kleenx box on my lap. I can no longer see new episodes - what am I going to do without new episodes on Thursday night????

I'm sure many of you might think, "Gosh, Maki, are you serious? You still watch that show?" or "I couldn't wait for the show to be off the air!!!"

But I had watched the show for 15 years. Yep, it's worth 15 years of my life - I was only 20 back then. "ER" is part of my life......

I don't know if the new series "South Land" can ever replace ER, but I surely hope it to be my rebound....

So, lets rewind and review all the hunks who got my heart throughout the series...


Oh how I still cherish those beginning episodes (The photo above: from the 3rd season)...


The begining of ER - Dr. Green (Anthony Edward) and Dr. Doug (George Clooney). The best buddies/docs in ER history. I loved watching them together..


When Russ was still bigger than George Clooney himself.


Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle) & Dr. Pratt (Mekh Phifer) in Africa - Those were one of my favorite episodes where they helped refugees in Africa...


Dr. Luca Kovac (Goran Visnjic) - I must admit my Russ days were over when he appeared for the first time on ER.

Luca helping refugees in Africa with Dr. Carter. He looks so good!! There are many real doctors who dedicate their lives to help people around the world....


And there comes Paramedic Tony Gates (John Stamos). Initally, John Stamos was supposed to appear only for several episodes, but you know, who could just let him go after a few episodes? I was praying he'd get a reoccuring role and my prayer was granted! He becomes an Intern at County General. Yay yay!



If Dr. Gates was my doctor, I would totally get myself sick at least once a month and run to ER. John Stamos has aged really well. He is still hot.


And then, my favorite of all favorites - Dr. Archie Morris (Scott Grimes). Seriously, everyone. I love him. I love everything about him. He is funny, cute and smart. He is not tall, but that's okay. He was the reason I sat in front of the tv every Thursday for the past 5 years. Dr. Morris is just awesome...


See, he's cute!



And my other favorite doc, Dr. Lucien Dubenko (Leland Orser) with Archie. There's something about his presense that made ER special. Cool cool doctor.


Oh, yeah, I must not forget Dr. Simon Brenner (David Lyons). He's a new face with a cocky attituted for ER. The bad boy image totally got my attention. His dark past was shocking revelation in one of the episodes.

And he finally begins the heal process.. I like Dr. Brenner.


On the set... hehehehehe...


Dr. Carter & Dr. Gates - pretty boys. I was sooo happy to see Dr. Carter back...



The wrap up - the end of ER...... Cheers!!! - thanks so much for the great 15 years!!!

I remember when ER first started! What a great run, not many shows make it to 15 years!

I remember that red-head doc you like from his Party of Five days with Matthew Fox and Neve Campbell, it was cool seeing him on TV again.

And Ross and Carol were always my favorite.

i loved this show but like many others, lost interest after a few years. I did watch the final episode and all the old feelings came right back!

Even though I haven't watched the show in at least 5 years, I was still sad to hear it was ending. I will never forget bawling my eyes out when Dr. Greene died.

Lalapoo said...

wow, Maki you really are into it.. I am sure you will find another rebound show to heal the wound.

Nicole Marie said...

haha you're so funny. My parents used to watch ER every week. It was on way past my bedtime and i remember sneaking downstairs and hiding behind the couch until my parents caught me and sent me back upstairs.

i can't believe a show has lasted that long! i was only 8 years old! sheesh

I totally watched ER last week and teared up, misty eyed at all the memories. The retrospective ahead of time made me cry too. I loved Mark Greene, still breaks my heart.

LadyStyx said...

15 years and I never watched even 1 episode.

I love Dr. Carter - I stopped watching when he left...

Maki said...

The Blonde Duck: I know!

Michelle: I will miss it too - I'm so sad:(

Dionne: Yes, Scott Grimes has played tone of cool role. Did you see the episode Ross and Carol came back on ER? It was weird...

Carrin: I know - it does come back to you..

Ms. Salti: Oh boy, I cried like a baby when Dr. Green died....

Lalapoo: Yes, I was into it when I read my post, geeeez, I am like a nerd! I hope I can find a rebound soon!

Nicole: What? You're 8??? This is when I realize I'm not that young anymore, at least age wise. lol

Bayjb: Last episodes were all great - all the great moments. Mark Green was one great doctor!

LadyStyx: Girl, you don't know what you're missing. Grab some DVD's!

freeTYEme: Dr. Carter was good and he did come back to ER time to time, like the episodes in Africa after he left the show:)
