1 Especially ridiculous moments: Abby and Carter get hot and bothered during quarantine (isn't every quarantine a good time to get yer flirt on?); the entire cast becomes a bunch of sexy teen model types; bald guy crushed by helicopter; Pratt given the worst killing off ever on a TV show; the red-headed doc who is incompetent suddenly morphs into a medical dynamo; Lucy killed/Carter stabbed (can you say melodrama?; Croatian guy has anger management issues; Sam shoots dead her ex-husband and then blithely goes on as if nothing happened and the show never mentions it again; but the worst moment for me was the helicopter chopping off bald guy's arm because this was the most gratuitous and unnecessary moment I've ever seen on TV (excluding every episode of CSI ever made). -- Submitted By: () on October 13, 2011, 7:57 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 ER started its downward spiral the season after Carter came back from rehab. Not saying it was all bad, but you could see a decline in quality for sure. I will say ER went out on a high note with its last season because they definitely improved things and it felt more like the first years. However, pinpointing one event that ruined the show, I'd have to say Sherry's return. I remember her being whining but not THAT whiny. -- Submitted By: (Dusk) on March 4, 2011, 12:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 When the cranky doctor lost his arm via helicopter at the beginning of the season, then at the end of the seasonanother helicopter came back to finish the job, I knew it was all over. -- Submitted By: (SmoothT) on November 4, 2009, 7:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Emmy-nominated actress Kellie Martin was a great addition to the ER cast in 1998--but then the following year, that cast swelled to 13 characters, and KM's character, Lucy Knight, was reduced to a couple insignificant lines per episode. After Lucy died in "All in the Family" (the last great episode of the show), having been brutally stabbed by a mental case in the previous episode ("Be Still My Heart"), ER descended into soap opera-like storylines and ridiculous situations. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on September 18, 2009, 8:45 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 For me, it boned with Dr. Greene died. He was the most "believable" character on this show, and apparently, the most stable. Abby was moody as hell, and then her SERIOSLY bi-polar mom would show up and wreak havoc. Carter was addicted to painkillers, then was totally manipulated by that Kim chick he hooked up with in Africa, who never treated him right. Benton had anger issues. Weaver couldn't decide if she liked men or women. Romano was borderline sociopathic. Luca made the mistake of marrying Abby. The only characters who stayed through the duration and were normal were the nurses. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on August 20, 2009, 2:32 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I didn't mind the soap opera aspect of it during the first few years, after all, that's what happens in these large cast shows. What bugged me was all the ridiculous situations that took place (the ER is invaded by gang- members who shoot up the place, doctors are stabbed to death, trucks and cars crash into the venue and all sorts of explosions and disasters take place. It made it seem the writers were like, "Uh, I don't have any REAL ideas, so let's make a bus crash into the E.R." Then they have the one guy who's supposed to rein in these idiot doctors and he gets his hand chopped off and then (if you can believe it) a helicopter falls on him! Didn't anyone in charge of this show say, "Guys, isn't this just a bit over the top?" Finally, what really killed the show is all of the original (or more-liked) cast members began leaving until no one recognizable was left. Even Angela Bassett and John Stamos could not save it from going Code Blue. Nurse, hand me a difibulator and a fish knife, the patient has gone into full arrest. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 16, 2009, 10:24 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 This was a prime time soap opera that got worse as the years went on. They started traveling to Africa, the helicopter crashed on the guy, Dr. Greene gets a brain tumor, etc., etc. The only thing they didn't have was one of the characters go into a coma, raise from the dead, have an evil twin, or a long-lost relative. Also, the fact that not a single person from the first season was left on the show. I think even some long-running soap operas can't claim that one. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 29, 2009, 9:02 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 What killed me about this show was that it was more dangerous to be anywhere near this ER. A helicopter crashed into the ER, the ER exploded, and I think someone drove their car through the ER as well. Another funny thing was that the victims showed up carrying or wearing what they were injured in. I remember a football player that was injured and they brought him in wearing his uniform, pads, and helmet. To top it off the cheerleaders all followed him still holding their pom poms. In real life people drop what they were holding to rush in and the medics take scissors and cut your clothes off. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 3:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
