The doors of County General are closing. And it makes us want to cry!! It's just a tv show. Life will go on,(I don't think it will) but Thursday nights will never be the same.
I (Mandee) have watched the entire series at least two times if not more. I have always set Thursday night 9:00 pm aside for ER. I don't schedule anything during that time and if for some reason I have something going on I set the VCR and record it. I am a huge ER fan and I am sick about it coming to an end. I have formed relationships with these people! I still hope and wish that Carter and Abby will get together (can it still happen). I have loved the people that you love to hate. I have cried over deaths that aren't even real, I have cried during the weddings, I have cried for the moms that deliver babies. I have laughed at Archie, I have cheered for Ray. I have cried for Dr. Green and wonder if Elizabeth is still doing ok. I wonder what happened to Benton, and was pleased to see him a couple of weeks ago. I am still not a big fan of some and wish I could grow to love them like I did Robert and Pratt.
This is the only TV show that I have invested 15 years with. That is a long time. I now know what MASH, CHEERS, and Friends fans went through. I feel like I should wear black while watching the final show. So as the lights go out in County General, I will always remember the times that we had together. Good luck and thank you for a great run.
In all, the series has won 113 awards including a total of 22 Emmy® Awards, one Golden Globe and eight People's Choice Awards.
