ER Blows now! It has blown big-time since they started the Africa stories to try to revive the show. The last few weeks I have finished watching the show and asking myself why in the hell I wasted an hour (or 44 min) of my life on that crap!
I still tivo it but I fast forward through all the preachy Africa junk...but my rule always was if the story is not in the er I fast forward through it although I have really liked the story line with John Leguizamo and the cop that is terrorizing him. I only watch it when I remember to set up the tivo because of that stupid 9:59 start time.
