Finally – a TV show ended in a feel good way. This season’s shows were heart warming and heart breaking as well as brilliant.
Where were you when ER first premiered? I cannot answer that but I do know that 15 years ago I was one year into being treated for breast cancer. I was on the road with my career and I was always propped up in a hotel room on Thursday nights watching my favorite new show.
Maybe I liked it a lot because I am a nurse and I worked in a county hospital. Possibly I had a crush on George Clooney. Or maybe it was because it has always been a terrific show.
I am still not sure why it had to end – but there is something said for going out on a high note.
I will miss this show. Taking it off the air leaves a hole in Thursday nights for me. I admit I cried as I watched the daughter of the deceased Mark Greene and John Carter rush into the hospital as the show ended. I still get goose bumps over the episode when Lucy and John got stabbed. I can cry buckets watching Mark Greene die in Hawaii.
I cannot answer why we fall in love with a show, or the shows characters, but we do-to the point of changing things when we don’t agree with the writers.
15 years – now I get to buy the DVD sets and enjoy the shows all over again.
In real life I have seen the goodbye interviews with the cast. They are all sad of course because friendships change now-15 years is a long time – and it is not just the cast that is affected, the crew is too.
Great job and congratulations to everyone involved. I am proud of this show, and it has been a pleasure to watch it for the past 15 years. I feel like I am losing a bunch of good friends.
