30 Days of ER: Day 16: Most Overrated Episode
Honestly, I think Be Still My Heart is soooo overrated. I love Be Still My Heart & All in the Family, but Be Still My Heart was not the most superb episode of the two. All in the Family was the one that was really heart-wrenching and intense. Be Still My Heart was like a normal episode until Carter walked into the Exam Room looking for Lucy. That last minute of the episode, where he gets stabbed and is lying on the floor looking at Lucy was the intense moment for the episode. Meanwhile, all of All in the Family was intense and scary. It was crazy and had all of us bawling, even though that last minute of Be Still My Heart had us bawling just as much. But for all we knew at that point, they would both live, or they would both die. During All in the Family, one of our worst fears were confirmed: young Lucy Knight died on the table. She was young, full of spirit and potential, and even had a promising career in psych. Carter was that resident we all loved and grew up with and couldn’t bare to lose. It looked like he might end up paralyzed, but by the end of the episode once Peter and Anspaugh took care of him, he was alright. But still, the episode was more emotional and scary, even though the cliff hanger of the prior episode left us all in shock. All in the Family was the one that was truly done amazingly.
30 Days of ER: Day 15: Most Underrated Episode
Honestly, this is one of my favorite episodes and I never hear anyone talk about it. Everyone talks about Be Still My Heart/All in the Family, Bloodlines, The Letter/On the Beach, but this season 2 oldie is way too underrated: A Shift in the Night :)
I mean, come on, how can you not love it? Mark is going crazy on his fourth graveyard and just takes everyone and a crap load of supplies and goes running through the waiting room, not even working up every patient. And this is after the car accident victims outside, the other good traumas of the night, and the consistent nagging of Ruth Huggins. I haven’t watched this episode in at least 3-4 months and I still remember this woman’s name lol Her and her son who cut his hand dinner time and wasn’t seen until 2 am when they couldn’t close the wound because the risk of infection was too high after hours of being open. So this was just a fabulous episode- there is no disputing it. And there’s not much more that needs to be said is there? And I just love the scene where Mark screams at Peter as he goes into the elevator with the MVA trauma kid.
*Appreciate the fact that the picture is of Doug and his whiplash at the beginning of the episode when Mark steals his shoes :3
The Show Must Go On.
This goddamn episode makes me bawl like a baby.
30 Days of ER: Day 14: Least Favorite Character Exit
Well tumblr is finally deciding to let me post this xD I know my last least favorite was about Dave Malucci, but so is this one :p He was my least favorite character exit. It was about time he left, but they did it so weird. He and Chen fucked up the aortic dissection guy by giving him clot-busting thrombolitics which just made him bleed out into his chest, and that got him in a bad position. Then a week later he performs an intubation in a busted elevator all because he had to follow the hot paramedic chick. It was because he got on that the elevator stopped and the guy ended up on the floor in need of an endotracheal tube. But no, he doesn’t let that get him down, he has to go screw around with the paramedic in the rig (OF ALL PLACES) while he’s on call. If they got slammed with traumas, where was he? Was he going to come inside from the ambulance bay to help? Probably not. He couldn’t just give her his number for a booty call later? Nope, had to be then and there. Kerry was 100% right for firing him, but what makes me truly hate Dave’s exit is the mention of his kid. As he goes to walk out he’s yelling at Kerry and tells her he has a kid to support. Where the fuck did this come from? Malucci has a kid? I mean, of course he would make a dumb mistake like that, but really? He left all the time whenever he wanted and was late without giving an answer, why didn’t he just say he had a kid so they could cut him some slack? But I’m totally with Kerry on this, he should have thought about his need to support his child before he fucked up like that. Screwing around with the paramedic on the premises, while on call, and also helping kill an aortic dissection patient when he missed the sign in the x-ray that Carter caught immediately. That says a lot about his character, and it was time he left.
30 Days of ER: Day 13: Favorite Kiss. So my favorite kiss I actually narrowed down to one, the one Carter and Abby share in the Season 8 finale, Lockdown. Not only is that a great episode, despite Mark being gone, the kiss is somewhat spontaneous and somewhat what everyone was looking and hoping for. I was quite excited, and also wished for Abby to be me :3
