The Final Chapter

Are any of you ER fans?

Did you watch the season finale?

The Final Chapter after 15 years?

Were you impressed? Disappointed? Did it leave you wanting more or were you just damn glad they were finally pulling the plug on something that had been dead a long time and just living on life support?

I was an ER fan from day 1. I loved Noah Wiley (Dr Carter), George Clooney (Dr Ross) an Anthony Edwards (Dr Greene). I actually cried when he died. Then they left the show and it changed. I continued to watch for a while because I wanted to believe it was still going to be the same show even without them. But Sherry Stringfield (Dr Susan Lewis) left too and suddenly it was whole different show with all new characters.

Then I started bowling on Thursday night and had to tape the show and decided it really wasn't worth it since my favorite characters were gone. SO....... I just watched whenever I had the chance and tried to make sense of what was happening.

You have to give them credit though for carrying on with a show that was obviously hemorrhaging money badly. Their ratings were low almost every week yet they kept plodding on trying to make us believe they were still running a viable hospital in the black!

It was sad to watch the last show but I was truly disappointed in how they did it. I was really expecting a much bigger bang for my buck. Good luck to all those truly incredible actors that gave many years to ER. I hope your careers continue to grow and flourish.

Now as we close a chapter on this show and open the next one what do you suppose we will find?

I lost interest too. I still had to watch the final episode though. And, I love your new layout & colors. The butterflies are so pretty!

I didn't get to see the last one yet. The next to last one was so cheesy!

Aww, I missed it! I haven't watched it for years but would have liked to see the end.
My hubby told me that it was Grey's that was airing it's final episode, which got me very upset. I should have realized he only ever gets half of the real story.

I loved ER but quit watching when Carter left for good. I missed the other night but it sounds like I didn't miss much.

I loved the special before the last episode where all the actors were interviewed. I like that they brought back a lot of those characters for the last show. Brought back some nice memories.

I started watching religiously at the beginning, watched a few seasons, missed a few seasons, started watching again a few years ago and now towards the end, meh.
I have the last 4 episodes on the DVR and am saving them for when there is absolutely nothing to do.
