Historical Tv Alert: Er Ends Its 40-year (actually 15) Run Tonight. Alexis Bledel Will Be There. 02.Apr.2009

Dr.CarterThere is not much to say because everything has basically been said about this wonderful show. Yes there have been medical dramas but in many ways ER was one of the first ones that concentrated more on the medicine and action-packed story lines than hot doctors sleeping together. What would you expect when the show is the brainchild of now deceased author Michael Crichton? I may or may not be referring to a show that rhymes with Shmay? s Socratomy. Anyway, over the years ER has become the equivalent to medicine what Law & Order is to detectives and lawyers and criminals. The show launched the careers of George Clooney, Maria Bello, Maura Tierney, Noah Wyle, Eric LaSalle, Julianna Margulies, Parminder Nagra and Omar Epps among others. Thousands of great working actors were also on ER way before they became household names like Kirsten Dunst, William H. Macy, Bradley Whitford, Jorja Fox, Gabrielle Union, Brenda Strong, Julie Bowen, Kristen Davis, Ewan McGregor, David Krumholtz, Shiri Applebi (who plays an intern now which defies logic) Mariska Hargitay and Ron Rifkin. The show also had Gilmore Girls cast members Jared Padelecki and Liza Weil guest-star and now Alexis Bledel will be starring on the series finale as a young intern. Maybe she will be on the rumored spin-off that is supposedly starring John Stamos. Thank you cast and creators of ER for 15 years of great Thursday nights. Alexis
