Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
Hard to believe, but there actually was a time when George Clooney was not a household name. That changed abruptly in 1994, when ER debuted and turned the messy life-and-death realities of a fictional Chicago hospital into the most-watched drama of the decade. The groundbreaking first season redefined the medical genre with raw emotions and staccato cuts that heightened the harrowing action. Part of the show's initial draw was sheer star power; besides Clooney, the original cast included Anthony Edwards, Julia Margulies, and Eriq LaSalle, along with A-list guest stars from Ving Rhames to Quentin Tarantino (who also directed an episode). But what really hooked viewers was ER's unflinching look at what makes people tick, from the patients on the operating table to the surgeons wielding the defibrillators. Beginning with the pilot, in which Clooney's Dr. Doug Ross comes to work drunk, the 25 episodes archived here expose the characters' flaws like an X-ray machine. Some are all-time classics like "Blizzard," in which the victims of a 32-car crash descend en masse on the harried staff. The Emmy-winning "Love's Labor Lost" has been enshrined by TV Guide as one of the greatest shows of all time. Learn how the crew shot this nail-biter on the DVD, which boasts a bevy of extra features: commentary tracks, two making-of documentaries, and featurettes and outtakes -- a menu as classy as the show itself.
