"Finally, Season One has arrived on DVD! If you are familiar with ER you know all the adjectives used to describe this unique show; Gripping, Stunning, Amazing, etc.So what does this DVD offer? Well, as the title states, the complete first season. It also includes the 1 1/2 hour pilot. In addition there are behind the scenes, bloopers, the making of, commentaries on three episodes, and more.As a real fan of ER I have waited for this DVD for some time now. The shows are wonderful to revisit. I am reminded of 'old friends' who have long since left the ER. I gave up on TV a number of years ago and do not have cable or watch any TV. A family member records the current ER episodes for me and I devour them each time. It is simply outstanding entertainment. The actors, story, music, editing, camera work and sooo much more combine to bring out the very best in entertainment.The only downside to this DVD comes with the packaging. The DVDs are double sided so you cannot set the DVD down without possibly scratching it. Also, because there is no label on each DVD you need to read the very fine print near the center hole to identify which DVD is # 1, 2, 3, or 4. And the print is even smaller to figure out which side is A/B.My 5 star rating is based on the quality of the episodes. The extras included with the DVD deserve 4 stars, and the packaging would be only 1 star."
Quite simply the best TV drama series ever!

"Having seen so many dire hospital dramas ("Casualty" and the like) I must admit I never thought I could possibly get into a series like "ER". That is until two friends insisted I watched an episode one Friday night on Channel 4 and within 30 mins I was hooked. Since then I've probably missed no more than 3 or 4 episodes and every one I've watched has been streets ahead of the competition. I hope people won't take offence when I say that US shows often run the risk of drifting into over-sentimentality. They do. But ER's greatest strength is the ability to handle the most emotional of story lines without it ever feeling that the line has been crossed. It's blend of realism and top-draw performances from the whole cast delivers TV that's right on the edge. It's quite simply the best show I've ever seen. If anyone reading this is a Warner Bros executive, please please please release some box sets of the show. I'm quite sure I'm not the only one who'd buy up the lot straight away!"
What an oversight!

"There is a huge oversight in the manufacturing of these discs. The discs are double sided and they failed to identify which side is Side A and which side is Side B. When they come new, Side A is facing up. But if you don't put them back in the same way, you'll need to actually put the disc into the player and pull up the episode index before you'll know whether you have the correct side or need to remove the disc and turn it over. I have looked very carefully and there is NO indication of Side A or B on any of my discs. Perhaps they corrected the problem part way through manufacturing, but I can assure you there is nothing on my discs to tell.
Anyway, that is my only beef. The ER series is top notch and I think most of us are familiar with it or we wouldn't be considering buying this. I give it four stars only because of the manufacturing issue."
One of the few series I would buy on DVD

"ER is one of the best shows I've ever seen. I've been watching it from the airing of the Pilot and I've been hooked ever since. If you are looking for an emotional high this is the show to watch. The writers and actors are amazing. Each episode makes me laugh, cry, and gets my adrenaline pumping. This show confronts extremely controversial, contemporary issues and even though I'm not in the medical profession I believe that it is very realistic. Anyone who works with a lot of people day in and day out can relate to what it is like to be pulled in several different directions at once and still try to maintain a professional facade, which I think this show pulls off beautifully."
