ER: The Complete Fourteenth Season
Review by Suzanne 1/20/11
What's always been great about this show is that no matter what
actors were in the cast, the writing and acting were superb. The action
and stories are always great. This last season was no different. In fact, I
thought they had really found their second wind on the show, so I was very
disappointed when they canceled it. In fact, I'm still annoyed about it!
This DVD is the next-to-last season. John Stamos slowly
moves into the role of leading man in the show, and he handles it very well. He
was a worthy successor to George Clooney. They did have a writer's strike
during this season, so the show was cut short. A lot of great guest-stars and
big actors in recurring roles came through this season, though, even as short as
Any fan of ER or any medical drama should love this DVD set (or
any of the ER sets, for that matter). Although at times it is sort of a soap
opera, it's never hard to follow. You really don't have to go back and watch the
first 13 seasons to appreciate this one. You will enjoy it, though, if you do.
ER was the best medical show to come along in a long time, and
it is the reason for the success of shows like Grey's Anatomy. They really
pioneered how TV now shows so much medical blood and guts and using a lot of
complicated medical terminology (but not underestimating the viewer), as well as
having the exciting ER-like drama and action that goes along with the personal
lives of the doctors. It may well be the best medical show ever, and it may also
be the best soap opera ever (and that includes daytime soaps).
Synopsis from Warner Brothers: At an ER party, Nurse Chuny
Marquez recalls, “I still remember when Mark Green and Doug Ross were running
the place.” “Who?” asks a newcomer. So much has happened in 14 seasons, so many
people have come and gone, but the chaos of saving lives and the dedication of
the people who make County General run remain. In this penultimate season of the
powerful, award-winning series, personal tragedies threaten – and sometimes
strengthen – relationships among the staff. And the patients bring their own
compelling stories. A boy genius diagnoses his mysterious illness, a
cancer-ridden prison doctor is haunted by the men he put to death, a woman
arrives in the ER expecting her 13th baby. Triumph, loss, tears, joy…next!
