I just saw a really great episode of ER. I guess great isn't the best word, it was the last episode with Dr Green. He died. Boo hoo. It was sad. I know ER has been around for a while but I just started watching this past season and know I watch every week. It's a very good show. Next week General Hospital gets smallpox. Ahhh. Scary. Anyone else an ER fan? Anyone see the episode. Made me want to go to Hawaii.

Before I opened the post I wondered who Dr Green was and then the only person celebrity or character I could think of was the Anthony Edwards from ER, damm, you should have used a better heading than that. Maybe I will put it up for deletion.
I am not sure if Australia is over a year behind. We just had Dr Benton leave so can someone tell me how far behind us Aussie are in the show.
Law and Order is also a good show, I hate when networks put the 2 good shows up against each other, I have enough trouble dragging myself away from the computer to watch TV, I guess that why they invented remotes and ad breaks.

BNE, you are a national disgrace! Australia is not a year behind America. It is a day ahead. Like, today is Friday night, while in America it's only Thursday. Get it right!!!
(Anyway, when I was in America in February, Niles hadn't even married Daphe Moon, so there! By the way, what does (R) mean in the American program guides?)

With apologies to our international friends, it's not like you can't see this information commonly on the internet.
BNE, I think you guys are about halfway through the present season (season 8). Benton exited stage right in November, which was episode 167. Currently, we're on something like episode 178/179 here in the U.S.

Sorry to my international friends.
I didn't mean to spoil anything. I really didn't mean to do that, didn't even think of it. Well now you have something to look forward to, it's a good episode.
Besides Anthony Edwards' contract was up and it was made public that this was going to be his last season a while ago. Sorry to hear that you didn't get that info down there. Please forgive me and if this post is deleted, then my feelings won't be hurt.

I don't see any reason why this thread should be deleted, aio86. As you say, that Edwards was leaving really has been common knowledge for some time now. And that Green was going to die has been all over the internet, too.
Thinking back to it, I really didn't like last night's episode very much at all. Too soulless, too heartless. The whole thing glossed over the fact that Green was literally going to die at the end of the episode. And why weren't we allowed to see more of the funeral? Do the writers think this is irrelevant to the viewers? Jeez, the series focuses on him for eight years, he dies, and all we get to see is a few tears? I really wish there was more of a focus on Green and Corday, and much less of a focus on Green and his daughter. The episode last night just made me despise her even more. Hopefully, she'll stay out of the plot from now on, but my better sense tells me that she'll be back to annoy Corday eventually.

I haven't missed one episode since freshman year. Its the only show (along with ALIAS) that I watch "religiously." I am so upset that Green died. He was like...THE doctor in the ER.. The show is going to be so dull without him. Really sucks.. Oh well, why did he leave anyways? Why didn't he just stay on longer, he wasn't getting old at all, in fact, he was probably the one doc that could stay on that show until the end, but the same goes for carter and abby, and benton. Wish benton didn't leave either.
