I was all set in my new decision to hate ER and not watch it anymore. But due to inertia, we started watching it tonight (in fact, we also watched Just Shoot Me — which we never do — due to the aforementioned inertia) and it turned out to be a well-written, insightful, funny, dramatic, moving, and all-around good episode. They made me care about this new core of central characters (now that all of the old ones have left). Bastards. I was looking forward to having that hour back 😉
Then the commercial advertising the upcoming weeks just came on and it was more over-the-top crap. But NBC has always done that with their coming attractions ads. Remember all the Enya in the Friends ads? I mean, Enya with Friends? What planet are they from?
