Product Description

Studio: Warner Home Video Release Date: 09/12/2006 Run time: 1179 minutes Rating: Nr

Inspired by creator Michael Crichton's experiences as a medical student in a hospital emergency room, ER quickly became one of the most compelling shows of the 1990s, each episode a whirlwind of intense and involving drama, gritty realism, and offbeat humor. Heading the staff at the inner-city Chicago hospital is Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), a doctor so good at providing care to the downtrodden, helpless, or just plain quirky patients that his career blossoms even as his personal life crumbles. Greene is the soul of the cast, but the heart is Julianna Margulies's nurse Carol Hathaway. Her character was intended only for the pilot episode, but she ended up capturing viewers with her palpable empathy for patients and her troublesome romance with womanizing pediatrician Doug Ross (George Clooney). The rest of the central cast consisted of compassionate Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield), Peter Benton (Eriq Lasalle), whose prodigious talent nearly matches his ambition, and his fresh-faced student, John Carter (Noah Wyle). Other key characters included ER heads Morgenstern and Swift (William H. Macy and Michael Ironside, respectively), overachieving student Deb (Ming Na), who returned later in the show's run, attending physician Angela Hicks (CCH Pounder), and physical therapist Jeanie Boulet (Gloria Rueben).

The remarkably strong first season showed off its sharp ensemble cast through a variety of compelling story lines both personal (Carter's conflicts with Benton, Lewis's struggles with her no-account sister, Chloe, played by Kathleen Wilhoite) and professional (a holiday blizzard and especially the harrowing tale of a pregnancy gone bad, "Love's Labor Lost," which won five Emmy Awards). When Carter is pondering whether his future includes the ER, Green jokes, "It's not bad: Stress, late nights, hard work, no pay--it's hard to beat." It's hard to imagine people choosing to work under those conditions, but they do, and in the process these very human people perform superhuman feats as they face life and death as part of their daily jobs.

DVD features are fairly generous for a TV series box. There are two commentary tracks on the pilot episode, including one by Crichton, and crew commentaries on "Sleepless in Chicago" and "Love's Labor Lost." A new 39-minute documentary discusses the show's genesis, casting, and the "Chicago hospital drama smackdown" with Chicago Hope through interviews with Crichton, executive producer Steven Spielberg, other crew members, and the principal cast members other than Eriq LaSalle. Also included are a very watchable featurette on the show's realism (ever wonder why Ross is always looking down?) and another on post-production, a list of characters (including patients by episode, but why no actor credits?), three minor deleted scenes, outtakes, and a glossary of frequently used medical terms. Particularly notable is that the episodes are shown in anamorphic widescreen. ER was one of the first network shows broadcast in widescreen, but that was years after these episodes, which are shown in widescreen for the first time. --David Horiuchi

Customer Reviews:

  • NBC Series don't need two sides.
    Some of the greatest shows, ER, Law and Order, L&O SVU and Criminal Intent are being released on double sided discs. For people like me this is a real pain as I use a 400 disc Sony changer. It won't play two sides. I'm sure there are others with my plight. Many people are precluded from owning these two sided discs. It may save the manufacturer a buck or so but ends up costing them in sales. ...more info
  • Why only French?
    The quality of DVD is good. The story is excellent. But for some reason the only available subtitle is in French. For people like me who don't know anything about French and want to learn something about the medical words, this version sucks....more info
  • Doctors, Nurses, Students: ER
    The first season of ER captivated me because of how realistic the show is, and I was also mezmerised at how the actors had to learn all of the lingo. The best thing about this season is the different personalities that are all running aroung the ER, like Benton's ignorance, Carter's Innexperience, Ross' Attitude toward women, and Lewis' constant battles with superior doctors. All of these personalities mixed into one show makes watching ER: The Complete First Season a very enjoyable experience.

    My Favorite episode from season one would have to be The Pilot. Even though it isnt taken as an "episode" I really enjoyed it because, again, the characters are introduced and theyre personalities are introduced.

    If you like drama and if you arent a queezy person around blood then this is the perfect DVD set for you. Enjoy!...more info

  • No corner was left uncut
    Plenty of other reviewers have addressed the show itself, so I will limit this review to that which motivated me to write it: the quality of the DVD set. Or more accurately, the lack of quality.

    First of all, to save a few cents on disks and packaging, they made the DVDs 2-sided, so they have no labels, you have to flip them over, and it is very hard to tell which side is which.

    All the disks have the same menu even though only disk 4 has the "bonus" materials. Why taunt us with menu items that lead to messages saying there is nothing on this disk?

    Most annoying, though, is the lack of captions for the hearing impaired -- they must have actually removed them to save space since the broadcasts had them. The only spoken language available is English, the only subtitles are French. What were they thinking? Let me guess: they were thinking they could get away with one minimalist release for both the US and Canada.

    This show deserved better -- especially considering it's price. If future seasons are this cheaply done, I won't be buying them....more info

  • ER: THE GREATEST TV SHOW, EVER
    Jeers to tv guide for picking Seinfeld as number one show of all time. ER is obviously the best. It has been on for 11 seasons now and still continues to be one of the ten most watched shows. The first season of this show introduces us to doctors Mark Greene, Susan Lewis, Doug Ross, Peter Benton and Nurse Carol Hathaway. As well as med student John Carter. The show began as it always has been: a perfect mix of humor, action and heart wrenchinbg drama as these doctors try to make sense of the chaos in they're personal lives and at work. You will not regret buying this box set, and I also recommend SEASON 2. Note to warner brothers: KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK YOU'VE DONE WITH THIS SHOW AND, HURRY UP AND BRING OUT MORE SEASONS! ...more info
  • A few digital hiccups don't detract from the amazing show.
    I remember almost 10 years ago when I sat down to watch this show I'd seen a preview for...and was instantly hooked. Now it's on DVD, in digital quality, and I can't tell you how happy I am to have it.

    Yes, there are the few digital hiccups that make a few people snort and say "oh come on, they could have done that better." But I dare you - I DARE you - to watch this show and find yourself paying attention to the digital quality when the writing, the acting, the production, the editing, and everything else is so superb. It's impossible to NOT get caught up in the content, the characterization, and the frenetic pace of the show itself.

    The first, second, third, and fourth seasons of ER were absolutely flawless television in every respect. It remained a nail-biter of a show until the end of the sixth season, when Julianna Margulies finally left. I for one am totally thrilled that the first season is out on DVD. My one question is: So Warner Bros., when can you send me the second season? :-D...more info

  • Love the Series, BUT...
    I am a huge ER fan, and I was waiting with anticipation to finally own Season 1. I found the double-sided disc annoying, but I can work with it. No big deal. Just got to look very hard to find side a and side b imprinted on each disc. The reason I am returning it is because there is a freezing problem on Disc 1, Side A (ep. 2 titled "Day One"). It stops play and I am unable to watch the complete episode. This is a common problem, according to some of the reviews on Season 1 and 2. ...more info
  • Er - Not the same ER as today
    What can I say, I can watch this over and over and not feel the same as watching today's ER, and that's a good thing. Dr. Greene, Carter, seeing the romance and wonder between Carol and Doug, nothing comes close to this first season, worth every penny and full of reminiscent scenes. ...more info
  • pretty good show, lots of extras
    Summary:
    ER is a fast-paced television show created by Michael Crichton to highlight life in hospital emergency rooms. The first season of the episode introduces all of the characters and carries them through some of the initial plots, including the loss of Dr. Benton's (Eriq La Salle) mother and Nurse Hathaway's aborted marriage (Julianna Margulies).

    My Comments:
    The episode is pretty interesting to watch, but it grows old fast. I'm sure the writers have tried their best to come up with new conditions and new situations in order for the staff to have to do different things, but because the audience really doesn't know what 99% of the disorders are, it probably doesn't matter. All they see is someone come in on a gurney, get a lot of attention, see a lot of blood, and watch the doctors, residents, and nurses fight about everything.

    Which leads to the characters and the deeper running story lines. After watching just a couple of episodes the viewer is inevitably going to have to look for something more than just the action of an emergency room to keep their attention. The show tries to grab that attention by creating unique characters whose lives pretty much revolve around their time in the ER. Of course there is also the periodic integration of outside lives with life inside the ER, but unless you have watched the show from the very beginning, sometimes its hard to know what is really going on with the characters. This DVD does do a little to help with that by giving brief bios on each of the characters (not the actors), but I don't think the very brief bios really get to the heart of who these people are supposed to be.

    I do have to admit that the acting isn't terrible, but neither is it universally stellar. Strangely I find myself more impressed by the male actors of the show (Noah Wyle - Dr. John Carter; Anthony Edwards - Dr. Mark Greene; George Clooney - Dr. Doug Ross; Eriq La Salle - Dr. Peter Benton) than with the female actors (Laura Innes - Dr. Kerry Weaver; Julianna Margulies - Nurse Carol Hathaway). For the most part the male actors, though not absolute stand outs, are pretty good and fairly consistent. The female actors, however, just seem to rub me the wrong way and aren't nearly as convincing.

    When the show originally came out I wasn't all that interested. I was still in high school and had better things to do. Occasionally I would watch a few minutes of an episode here or there if I could find nothing else to watch during my brief interludes with the electronic babysitter, but generally I would watch pretty much anything but ER. From the episodes that I've seen I'm amazed that people that follow the show haven't shown higher rates of suicide than people watching sitcoms (maybe they have, someone should do a study). The show is really rather depressing. Nothing ever seems to go right, people die all of the time, and even the main characters periodically attempt suicide and are always upset with one another or about something. I don't know how anyone can really stick to this show for this reason alone.

    So, what we have is a rather repetitive TV show with okay actors that tries to keep the viewers attention by developing underlying story lines for each of the characters but in order to understand the story lines you have to see every single episode.

    Assuming that you have followed the series, you will likely find this box set to be a great collection. It has a lot of extras that are fairly well done, including a number of outtakes, interviews, and a lot of behind the scenes information.

    Overall, though I'm sure this series has been really interesting to some, unless you follow it closely I think the drama can quickly pass you by. Initial exposure to ER can be pretty shocking, with all of the blood, gore, and sadness that accompanies the quite regular deaths, but once you've seen one person die from myocardio-something or other you've seen about all there is to see. I'm sure die-hard fans of ER will love this box set. But having never been sucked in by the depressing stories that anchor the show, I can't really say that I loved it....more info

  • Worth Owning
    Great show, Great first season and worth buying. The only downside is that it comes with 4 "flip disc" which makes it hard to keep from scratching or damaging(especially with the packaging). I would've been willing to pay a little extra if they just put all the episodes on 1 side of I would assume 6 disc(instead of 4 flip disc). To make it more annoying, each disc does NOT tell you which side is "A" and which side is "B" that would helped a little. I hope they fix these annoyances on future ER DVDs....more info
  • One of the greatest TV drama in the US
    I have been watching ER since her season 1, and keep buying the DVD of 2nd season, and keep watching the current season in the TV.

    This is a great TV series, full of fun, excitment, inspiration and can be relaxing.

    I wish ER won't be stopped like X-files, although Mark Greene, Dr Rose and et al have left the team....more info

  • Very Real!
    This 4-disc set includes all the episodes from season one, including the pilot. The pilot is a double-length episode that grabs you from the very beginning. Over 25 hours of viewing pleasure in this set. The pilot has a commentary track by series creator, Michael Chrichton.

    There are other various commentaries throughout the set. I would recommend this set as a gift or as a gift to yourself. The discs are double-sided and the packaging is pretty amazing. I was not sure about Warner Brothers' packaging for a while but they seem to have a grasp on how to package & release important titles. You won't be disappointed. You'll eagerly await the release of season two....more info

  • Very Watchable!
    This is a very rare gem that is only found on television once a decade. However, this is not for everybody. You are bombarded with dozens of storylines every episode, some of which go somewhere, some that don't. It's more a "day in the er" show. The camera work is absolutely brilliant. You feel like you are infact walking through the ER yourself, getting to know these people from the conversations. You find yourself picking up medical worlds that you never knew you could learn. It deos come off as very real. Yes, there are some indescrepencies between an real ER and the show but thank goodness there are!...more info
  • Great show, great extras, mediocre picture quality
    Two things:

    a) ER is an excellent show, and the Season 1 set catches it at its earliest and (perhaps) most brilliant. The ensemble cast gels immediately, the writing is impeccable, the storylines compelling. You really can't do much better.

    b) Some of the extras are stupendous. The behind-the-scenes documentaries, while presented in the interrupt-speech-with-video-clip-that-vaguely-relates-to-what-the-person-is-saying format I'm not too fond of, are very, very enlightening. I always wondered how much the instant success of the series impacted how easy it was to film on location, and I got my answer. The blooper reel is an expanded version of what we've seen before, and is very nice.

    That said:

    ER's first season has, believe it or not, actually been available for quite some time. The caveat: it was only available as an expensive Japanese set, and as our Benevolent Guardians the MPAA would have it, you of course needed an all-region player to play these discs if not in Japan. That said, having seen the first few seasons in that format a few times, I was blown away. The colors were vivid, and while the extras were bare to nonexistent, I was quite pleased with the presentation.

    I am not similarly pleased with this domestic set. Firstly, the set is matted into widescreen. We've heard proponents of letterboxing whine (quite justifiably, of course) for absolute years about how pan-and-scan versions of feature films are an absolute abomination. I'd like someone to explain, then, why it's suddenly an acceptable practice to chop the top and bottom off of a TV program to make it look better on widescreen TVs? ERs first few seasons presumably weren't filmed in widescreen, as we're definitely getting less information in certain shots. I'd at least have liked a choice.

    Additionally, the picture quality isn't quite up to snuff. In particular, there's TONS of visual garbage in certain scenes (and no, it isn't just my set...I've seen it on other people's). Check "Blizzard" right when Carol is taking the emergency phone in...there's a shot of Haleh which has a hilarious amount of white splotches flickering across it. Other scenes in other episodes are similarly plagued with what could either be dirt on the print or digital glitches, and several scenes seem oddly washed-out. This would be acceptable on a feature film from 30 years ago, but why here? Especially when the Japanese sets generally didn't have these problems? (needless to say, I hope these weren't caused during the matting transfer).

    If you've never seen ER before, run run run and get this set. It's far cheaper than most equivalent sets, and well worth the $45 price. If, however, you either own the Japanese set or suspect that better things might come to those who wait...well, you might be better off waiting. I love the episodes, and love the extras, but the suspect picture quality and forced-widescreening (we don't see this being done to the freakin' Simpsons!) take a few points off this set....more info

  • My favorite show!!!
    I love this show and a huge fan of it. From the very begining ER caught my attention and I haven't missed an episode since!! Good show!...more info
  • Back To The Beginning
    I have been a fan of ER since the beginning, though I have not gone back to view old episodes, though I have caught a few now and again on televsion. And as the show is winding down its run I started getting a bit sentimental (for lack of a better term) and about the show and began thinking back how I was immediately captivated by it. So I went and got the first season.

    The first season recaptivated me again, and is a standout one among all these years. Having not seen many of these episodes in quite along while they were fresh and powerful again. If you are a newer ER fan and did not ctach these episodes you should get this because you will love them. And if you have been a fan since the beginning, these are some of the biggest standout episodes and writing of the series. Over time some seasons had some ups and downs, this one is solid.

    The bonus features alone are worth the price of the set, but it is a case of having your cake and eating too, you have it all.


    Highly recommended to any ER Fan....more info
  • A fascinating dramatic series...
    Nominated for 25 Golden Globes and 110 Emmys, including 7 for Outstanding Drama Series, ER has long been one of the best prime-time shows on television. Premiering in September 1994 on NBC, the hour-long hospital drama vividly illustrates the intensity and fast-paced stress endemic to hospital emergency rooms across America. Brought into being by Michael Crichton - famous Hollywood insider, novelist, and brains behind such films as Jurassic Park, Twister, and Timeline - ER fulfills its creator's ultimate vision (it took over a decade of pitching the show before network executives bit) for a close-to-life glimpse of the technology and the humanity omnipresent in the ER. Since its inception, many cast members have passed through the halls of ER, many of them having gone on to become big stars in Hollywood...

    ER follows the exploits of a group of emergency room staff who work in a busy Chicago hospital. The show attempts to examine every detail of the ER experience. From the exhilaration of saving a life to the tedium caused by mountains of paperwork, all the highs and lows are covered. In the show's first year, a number of regular faces staffed the ER. Doctors Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), Peter Benton (Eriq La Salle), Douglas Ross (George Clooney), and Susan Lewis (Sherri Stringfield) were regulars in the ER along with Head Nurse Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) and Benton's medical student understudy (and later ER doctor), John Carter (Noah Wyle)... Any given episode tends to run multiple plot lines throughout the show, interweaving scenes in short snippets intended to heighten audience emotion and create the aura of a stress-laden atmosphere. The show's high drama, coupled with subplots of the staffers' personal lives and the display of cutting edge medical technology, combine to make ER one of most adrenaline-inducing programs in television history...

    The ER (Season 1) DVD features a number of dramatic episodes including the series premiere "24 Hours" in which a long day in the ER is made longer when multiple casualties pour through the doors following the collapse of a building and medical students report for training (marking the first appearance for John Carter's character). Meanwhile, Dr. Benton performs a heart surgery normally reserved only for senior staff members while the staff is struck with a personal tragedy when Head Nurse Carol Hathaway is brought in following a suicide attempt... Other notable episodes from Season 1 include "Blizzard" in which a major snowstorm first leads to an empty ER and then (following a 40-car pileup) one with overflowing capacity, and "House of Cards" in which, while trying to keep up with Carter, Deb nearly causes a patient's death...

    Below is a list of episodes included on the ER (Season 1) DVD:

    Episode 1 (24 Hours: Part 1)

    The first season of ER is one of my favorite, followed only by Season 4. This is a great show with great writing and great characters, and if you love the show, you have to see where it all started!...more info
  • The start to a great show!!
    If you like doctor/er type shows, then ER is a great show to get started on! I have watched this show since it started, and you the characters really grow on you. This show has 11 total seasons. If you have not been apart of the ER rush, start today! I think the earlier seasons are way better then the later seasons, however it is still a great show!...more info
  • Previously on ER
    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....more info

  • I will absolutely buy it.
    I heard a lot of good things about ER, but I haven't had any chance to watch it. After renting the first Disc. from NetFlix and watching the pilot, I couldn't stop watching the whole DVD. I will not rent the second DVD, but I surely will buy the complete seasons....more info

  • One Of The Best Debut Seasons In Television History
    In the history of television, first seasons are rarely that impressive. I mean, a lot of times you'll hear people saying how remarkable the first season was, but when you compare to later seasons, it will pale. Such is not the case with "ER." "ER" got off and running with an incredible first season any show would be lucky to compare to.

    It all started with a wonderful pilot. Any other show would be lucky to have a pilot like the pilot of "ER," as well. Running two hours with commercials and an hour and a half withouht, it's simply spellbinding, launching off the series splendidly, introducing the characters and the style of the show that continues to this day. The characters we meet in the pilot are:

    Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards): Mark is basically the head guy of the hospital, and in the pilot, we become familiar with his hectic lifestyle and how he juggles his work and his family, not always successfully. He has an annoying little brat daughter and a terrible wife, but this doesn't stop him from being perhaps the best character of not just the original cast, but the entire series. Anthony Edwards makes Mark such a loveable character.

    Doug Ross (George Clooney): This was the role that basically shot George Clooney off to superstardom, and he plays it well. Doug is a tough but a irresponsible man and in the pilot we become familiar with his previous love affair with Nurse Carol Hathaway.

    Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield): By far my favorite character from the original cast, Dr. Lewis is a tough and wonderful character (not to mention freakishly sexy). Sherry Stringfield really lights up this role. Unfortunately, when she returned to the show after several years of absence, it just wasn't quite the same, but fortunately we have the first two and a half seasons to treasure her wonderful character and the wonderful acting that Sherry Stringfield gave us.

    John Carter (Noah Wyle): Carter is just a fresh faced, eager to learn young 20-something med student in the pilot, and he quickyl gets thrown into the exciting world of ER medicine and surgery when he has to deliver a baby just as the mother arrives through the hospital doors.

    Carol Hathaway (Jullianna Margullies): The thing you'll probably notice in the pilot is that Jullianna Margullies is listed as a guest star, and not put with the main cast. The plan was to have her die in the first episode, but fortunately she got to stay for six wonderful seasons. This character represents a lot about classic "ER" and it definately one of the most interesting people to work at County General. In the pilot, we learn a whole lot about her character when she attempts suicide and is saved by her friends at the ER. The following episodes revolve very much around her and her returning to a normal life.

    Peter Benton (Eriq La Salle): Benton is an arrogant little prick, but you have to love him. It's funny to note that he does seem slightly different in the pilot, more eager and cheerful (not much, but whatever). He gets some great moments in the first episode, but most noticeably when he performs an emergency surgery without assistance and ends up saving a life.

    This is the cast. Although the show as it is now (in its twelfth season) has a nice enough cast, it's just not the same as the original six, who stand together as a true television ensemble.

    The first season is just wonderful. The show rolls along smoothly, churning out storylines compelling, dramatic, heartbreaking, and often funny. It's a perfect combination. The first season also brings us plenty of classic episodes, including the famous "Love's Labor Loss," which may have the saddest ending of any "ER" episode ever, as Dr. Greene cries quietly over the knowledge that he may have caused the death of a new mother. The first season won multiple Emmys, and it deserved all of them and more.

    Warner Brothers did a real nice job with this DVD set. The episodes are presented in widescreen, which has caused some controversy, since the first six seasons of the show were filmed and broadcast in fullscreen format, but the bottomline is that the episodes look great matted and it makes them match with later seasons nicely, so I have no complaints. There are a decent amound of supplemental materials, among them a nice documementary about the pilot and the first season.

    "ER" is one of the best shows ever made, no kidding. Although I'm still a big fan of the "ER" currently on, it in now way compares with these incredible early seasons, and the first season is a prime example of "ER" at its finest.

    I like E.R. I got addicted watching the NBC episodes on Thursday nights and the TNT daytime reruns and I'm as happy as can be that the first season was put on DVD and the only gripe I have is the double-sided discs.
