Not a bad episode filled with major changes in the ER:
Kovach almost gets fired, but Weaver uncharacteristically does the right thing and gets demote for it.
John Stamos comes onboard as a intern, but not after saving Neelah from some bar hoodlum looking to prey on her chasing of her pain away with booze.
Morris begs and begs for his job back, and is finally rewarded with his efforts.
Abby's wacky mom shows up, and brings a bit more stress to the premature baby situation for Abby and Kovach. But her diligence ends up saving the day after the baby is submitted to experimental drug trials and develops complications.
Looks like they're sticking with the new opening to the show, not even showing the cast credits. The old James Newton Howard theme music has been replaced.
It seems they're still trying to find a suitable replacement for Clooney and it looks like they've found one in John Stamos (lady charmer, rule breaker, butting heads with authority, etc.). Although it was kinda strange seeing Uncle Jesse kicking ass.
I'm really starting to like Morris. The guy get's funnier all the time.
Thats the thing about Morris that always bothered me....was they made him seem so incompetent. And to make him chief resident to boot. He can be a jerk, a goof-off...but, he should be at least medically competent.
I was watching Shark...Can someone clue me into what happened on last nights episode??
ER has always been a show I somewhat follow but I haven't been an avid watcher for a few seasons (at least) now. I do follow enough to know the cast pretty well, but my wife asked a question and I did not know the answer. What happened to Abby's brother? Thanks!
Morris has absolutely no subtlety in his psychological makeup. Good scrap at the soccer game.
Abby finds some enlightening stories while posing as a nanny among nannies. Definitely need to bump up the number of nanny-cams if you employ them.
Gates is hounded by Pratt, but manages to bring some innovation to the ER. His homelife is a bit complicated, being the live-in boyfriend, and also on the make with Neelah.
Neelah finds out how much Gallant was worth to the army. She also manages to impress with a trach in spite being relegated to scrub duty for surgeons. Her friend Kate was cute, perhaps Ray will hit it soon.
Anyhow a decent balance of the ER cases and the revolving subplots of the doctors and interns.
I wasn't paying enough attention, or maybe missed something from an earlier episode: what exactly was Morris's relationship to the kid at the soccer game? He claimed to be the father, and since his mom seems to be in a gay relationship, was he the sperm donor or something? If so, how did he and the kid get into contact?
Morris was a sperm donor in his younger years, and so far his sperm has hit the target on 5 eggs (I think it was 5), and somehow Morris was able to find these kids he "fathered" thorugh the sperm bank records.
