I’m watching the last episode of er right now, and it’s a strange thing. It’s been literally years since I’ve watched the show — I stopped watching not long after they dropped the helicopter on Romano. At the same time, despite the fact that the cast is almost entirely different, it still feels like er. Though I am baffled by Abraham Benrubi’s beard. The rhythms are still the same, the musical notes are the same. Really though, watching this takes me back to when I did watch the show back in college, in my little dorm room. Also, holy crap, bringing back the actress who played Rachel Greene was a beyond awesome decision. It absolutely brings the show full circle. This is a very well done episode, full of all these delicate grace notes, and mixed in with the standard er character fare. We’ll miss you er. In your heyday, when you were on there wasn’t a better show on television.
