The first spoilers for
Episode 7 have come out and boy is one of them a HUGE surprise ! I'm
almost tempted to blurt it out right here, but out of respect to the
people who don't want to know you'll have to see the spoiler page.
Laura Innes (Kerry
Weaver) appears on the cover of The Advocate this month. In it
she talks about
and playing a gay character.

No need to adjust you computer screens, this is the new look for The
ER Site. Too many people were having problems with the previous dark
colors so I did a complete make-over. I hope everyone likes it ! Ok
on to the news.....
The spoilers page is worthwhile checking out today. Although it's updated almost daily
this is one of those times where there has been a small influx of
spoilers all at once.
Congratulations to ER
for winning the Outstanding Single-Camera Sound Mixing For A Series
for "Partly Cloudy, Chance of Rain" at Sunday's Creative Arts Emmys.
Don't forget to watch the annual Emmy awards this Sunday. Noah Wyle
and Maura Tierney will both be presenters.
Speaking of Emmys, at
the Creative Arts Emmys "Frasier" created the new record of most
Emmy awards with a total of 30. ER currently has 20. Maybe ER could
top this....c'mon guys give us some fantastic new seasons. ...... No
? Please ? Would adding a cute dog help ?

Mimi Leder. Mimi Leder has been a director on ER for many years.
Most of the episodes she directed are in the earlier seasons.
The Official ER at NBC
site has added some not only actor bios but also
character bios for
ER. These are worth reading if you want to have a good laugh.
I'm not quite sure who wrote these, I assume some one who has seen
ER before, but you would never know it from what's written. Some of
the comments are: re Abby "Abby's close friendship with Carter has
slowly blossomed into a long-term romantic relationship" Although I
love both these characters I thought last time we watched they had
just kissed, possibly beginning their relationship. Did I
miss some secret love affair during the secret summer episodes ?
Re:Carter "After his brief flirtation with Susan Lewis ended, Carter
and Abby's close friendship deepened into love" Carter might be in
love, but Abby ? Someone's getting a little ahead of themselves. Re:
Luka "Now a year out from his unhappy relationship with Abby, Luka
has a brotherly affection for her, and is enjoying a bachelor
lifestyle" A friend maybe but I wouldn't go that far.
Think what Carter wants to do in upcoming episode 3 is too dramatic
? (I won't spoil it for those who don't want to know) If you've read
the spoilers then
read this and maybe it isn't so far fetched after all.

If you happen to be in Maysville, Kentucky on the 28th you can see
George Clooney at the fourth annual Rosemary Clooney Festival. This
year's event includes a tribute to the legendary singer and actress
who died in June.
With the new season only 2 weeks away critics are weighing in on
ER's upcoming season.....
TV Guide - Matt's forecast: While ER is hardly on life support, the
show needs a creative transfusion to keep the masses glued.
Journal Sentinel TV critic - Q: Nancy of Glendale -- How do you
think E.R. will do this season after losing yet another favorite
cast member? Do you think Luka will have a bigger role. I keep
waiting for him to step up.
A: Joanne Weintraub -- It still has a strong ensemble cast, but the
ratings have been steadily eroding -- and this year there's some
interesting competition from CBS' good new Without a Trace, which
will benefit from its CSI lead-in. Re Luka, I'm a fan, too. Don't
know why hasn't been given more to do.
Speaking of ratings. ER came in last with "On The Beach" last night.
Following CSI and Primetime.
