I'm embarrassingly giddy to report that ER is now on Hulu- all 15 seasons!  I know there are a few fans here, as this was discussed in previous threads....so I rushed right over to let you know. :) 

Blast this ridiculous digital world of adding & removing shows with no rhyme, reason or warning. In this case, it worked to my favor.

OK this is bad. I mean, I've been wanting this available, but I've learned that when a series is available I compulsively watch the whole thing in order. It would be ridiculous to watch 15 seasons of any show they way I do this.

I’m rewatching ER from the beginning. (Dubbed in French, so not on Hulu...) I’m having so much fun. Major nineties nostalgia! Don’t resist, dive in!

I don’t know how many seasons there were after Kellie Martin left the show, but I never watched it again.

If you don't have teen girls, you may not know that Grey's Anatomy is their ER.  Seriously, you'd think this generation invented the hospital drama.  I keep telling my 17 yo that, before there was Grey's, there was ER, and I reel off the list of current stars who started out on ER.  She looks at me blankly and with zero interest.  I try to describe the scene with Dr. Greene (Green?) went to Hawaii and am met with--more blank stares.  I should subscribe to Hulu and make her watch with me.

dd & I have watched both together, though eventually I bailed on Grey's for a bit & she's kept watching it on & off... But we watched ER together as part of a mom/daughter time (on dvd so we could watch 2-4 episodes at a time) every week for years.

Yes, dd loves Grey’s. But let me tell you, ER is a much higher quality show. Grey’s is a repetitive soap opera.

I YouTube this scene every once in while. That version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" touched me then and even comes back to haunt me in different ways now (most recently when my husband and I took our almost-a-nun daughter our for lunch for her high school graduation celebration; she didn't want an actual graduation event or party, so the three of us did lunch). The music playing over the speakers at the restaurant was annoyingly unfitting, but at the very moment her dad started saying some of our "official" words of graduation, that song came on -- I literally burst into tears. ER provided so many surreal shocking-horrifying-satisfying moments for me -- including the one with Dr. Greene, but also things like the way one season ended with the attack on Carter and Lucy (still SO vivid, the shock, to me), both incidents with Dr. Romano involving a helicopter (ack!! and ACK! ACK!), and how Dr. Pratt survived the ambulance explosion but was being treated in the ER, and the look on his face when he realized what was happening to him. 

 

Ugh.  I never even thought about ER coming out as a series on Netflix or some such service. Like one of the posters said above, when I start to watch a series that I like, I realllly binge watch and am lost to all for a time. 

 

By the way, you do remember that George Clooney was in a hospital-based show before ER?  It was called ..... E/R. It also starred Elliott Gould, Conchata Farrell, Mary McDonnell and Jason Alexander.

Or or or--the scene where they're treating the guy who fell/jumped onto the train tracks, and they page the intern, and--ugh!

 

And I did not know that about George Clooney, and I refuse to believe it, as our generation invented the hospital drama.  Nothing came before ER.

See I didn't start watching ER until Clooney and Margulies were gone (or almost gone) so I think I missed that episode but I just read about it after I happy-googled "most memorable ER episodes." I just signed on to Hulu so I could watch it.  Sigh. 

 

As for hospital shows before ER .... in addition to E/R (which I did actually watch during its run), in my young-girl life, there was also Emergency! and well, of course, General Hospital (lol!).

If you get the chance to see Emergency as a lark it's hilarious now. We watched the first 3 or 4 episodes of the show  and I nearly died laughing. It's so so so so slow and there's an entire chunk of time dedicated to a political issue and everyone wandering around explaining in detail some state legislature act that they need in order for there to be medically trained personnel in the fire department...

It really was something but even I eventually had to stop watching it... 

Have you ever seen the ER pilot? If you haven't, watch it, don't read the description.  You'll like it.

Yeah, I just saw that it was on Hulu today and have been watching it.  Wow, nineties.  The clothing, the hair.  They're. . . something.

 

(And sheesh, all of the doctors look so young!  It's bad enough that my real doctors are my age.  The doctors on ER are younger than I am!  I was a senior in high school when the show started.  Clooney and Edwards were in their early 30s and probably playing doctors a couple of years younger than that on the show, if they're second or third year residents.  They're actually closer to my daughter's age than mine.)

I'm binge watching it today. I was just looking for it a few months ago and bummed that it wasn't on any of the streaming sites.

If you like soapy ER shows, you might like Night Shift, the first couple seasons of which are on Netflix.  It's got enough explosions and fights each episode to please those who like action/adventure stuff too, so it can be a guilty pleasure for the whole family.

I've been watching it on Hulu Live which we recently upgraded... it is on one of the stations they carry, POP, I think.  I am over the moon if all 15 seasons are on regular Hulu!!!  .

I'm trying to guess the chances that it will end up on either Netflix or Amazon Prime within the next few years?  Wouldn't you know that it's on the one service that we don't have!  :crying:

I watched the last episode today on iPop. They show three episodes daily, so I don’t know if they are going to start over at the beginning again or if they will stop showing them. I have them on dvd though. That was my gift to myself when ds went away to college.

We are working through season 1. Though, I bought it on Amazon because I was getting impatient waiting for SOMEONE to put it in streaming. Now I can watch the rest of them. It's been a while, but I still think it's my favorite show. 😍

Season 1 started on Pop last week.  That's when I started watching it via Hulu Live before I knew the full 15 seasons were coming out on regular Hulu.

Hulu was one of my Christmas gifts because it is the only way to see the show Selfie. Selfie only lasted a few weeks but the whole season existed and is on Hulu. I love that show!

I'll need to check out ER! I started watching after it had been on for a few seasons.
