"Out of Africa" I was so glad I didn't pay much attention to the ER promos (because when the drunk mom lit herself up, I was surprised she was going that far because I thought she was just trying to get some more booze out of the car). Bob Newhart's appearance will lead into a few more, and I guess Susan is taking the lead on his case. Susan had a rough day at the ER. Sam Taggart - Mmmm... me likes alot. I didn't realize Linda Cardellini was going to be a regular (had to back up the opening credits twice to see her name after Parminder Nagra's to make sure). But Sam had quite the opening introduction scene, and she appears to be battle-tested from her previous stints at other hospitals. Romano was really giving Abby a hard time, but you'd expect it from Romano because he's so hard/cruel on the nurses anyhow. Abby looked weird in doctor garb. I liked her better as the nurse that usually knew more than most of the interns/students. I hope we never see Morris again. He reminds me of Osten from Survivor - a quitter that didn't need to be there. And yes, Kovach is the man. His time in the Congo taught him a lot about triage patient management. Corday got blindsided when it was revealed in the middle of surgery that Dorset is married.
