Well, I'm sad now. I just watched the last ER episode. I hate that it's gone now. There were quite a few years I quit watching, but it has been really good this last season or 2. I kept thinking they were going to change their mind and go for another season. Wishfull thinking. I liked how the show got into the feelings of medical workers. Their frustrations and exhaustion. Ya, they weren't completely realistic with the medical stuff- like tonight the perfectly clean newborn And Dr Carter started a 16 gauge I.V on someone. OMG....that would be like having a straw in your arm almost. He stated that it was so they could use it to give blood..........wrong you only need a 20 to give blood through....lol. OR they always use the longer more complicated sounding name for the drugs....like instead of saying xanax, they'd yell out alprazolam . 5 mg! OR They'd go from one trauma room with bloody gloves into the next one without changing gloves. But I think they really captured the way it feels, the frustration. What it's like to stand there and watch a husband holding his wife who he has been with for 70 years as she dies. I could really relate. Now I just have House to "relate to ". House is way more accurate when it comes to the medical stuff, but not so much in the professional side. But again, there's really not alot of patient care on House either.
Anyway, too bad...... I think they ended it really well though.
