Television: ER
Thursday, 2005 February 24 - 11:44 pm
ER has been infused with new life this season.

Over the last couple of seasons, I had started to grow tired of ER. It was always the same old irritating characters, faced with ever more far-fetched scenarios. Even my former favorite character, Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle), had turned into a whiny and irritating idiot. And please, I've had enough of the attempts to make Dr. Weaver (Laura Innes) into somebody we can sympathize with.

But the last two episodes have been fantastic.

If there is hope for this show, it lies with Parminder Nagra and Maura Tierney, playing Neela Rasgotra and Abby Lockhart, respectively. These are by far the most complex and well-written characters on the show. And thankfully, Nagra and Tierney also happen to be two of the best actors.

I can't quite figure out what happened, though. Did the show get new writers recently? Why is it suddenly so good again? Maybe it's just the fact that we're in February sweeps. Maybe NBC has been holding out on us until now.

So ER is really all that's left of "must see TV" on NBC. "Joey" is kind of a bust, I'm afraid; just a very average sitcom. "Will and Grace" hasn't held my interest in years. And "The Apprentice" is just plain irritating.

I still say that "Lost" is the best show on television. Did you SEE last night's episode? (Written by Javi, of course.) IT WAS SO DAMN GOOD. I just about wet myself.

I have been a devotee of Maura Tierney's on ER for many years now; she is the sole reason I continue to watch the show.

Yeah. I was also a big fan of Maura when she was on "NewsRadio". That is, back when Phil Hartman was still there and the show was still good.
