Product Description

Product Description

The entire third season of the popular medical drama. In 'Dr Carter, I Presume', Jeanie (Gloria Reuben) discovers she is HIV Positive, but decides not to disclose her status to the hospital. 'Let the Games Begin' finds Jeanie undergoing aggressive treatment for HIV. Meanwhile, the attraction is growing between Greene (Anthony Edwards) and Lewis (Sherry Stringfield). In 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', Carter (Noah Wyle) gets in trouble when he exaggerates his patient's condition so that he can carry out an operation. 'Last Call' sees Ross (George Clooney) experience a personal tragedy, while Hathaway (Julianna Marguiles) considers enrolling in medical school. 'Ghosts' sees Hathaway and Ross working in a mobile health unit in the city's poorest neighbourhoods on a stormy Hallowe'en night. In 'Fear of Flying', Lewis confronts her fear of flying in order to travel in a rescue helicopter. 'No Brain, No Gain' finds Benton (Eriq La Salle) keeping vigil on a critically ill baby - whose condition is the result of his own surgical error. In 'Union Station', Jeanie's husband finally signs their divorce papers. 'Ask Me No Questions, I'll Tell You No Lies' finds Greene learning Jeanie's secret after sneaking a peek at her confidential files. In 'Homeless for the Holidays', Ross befriends a homeless teenager and invites her to accompany him to the Ukrainian Christmas celebrations at the Hathaways'. In 'Night Shift', Benton, Carter and Doyle perform surgery in vain on a man who fell in front of a subway train - who turns out to be someone closer to home than they imagined. 'Post Mortem' sees Jeanie start dating a doctor who specialises in infectious diseases. In 'Fortune's Fools', Hathaway is suspended from the hospital after admitting to a newspaper reporter that she made a fatal mistake. 'Who's Appy Now?' sees Ross treating a cystic fibrosis patient who wants to die - but is too young to sign the 'Do Not Resuscuitate' order. In 'The Long Way Around', Hathaway finds herself relying on her medical skills to save lives after she is taken hostage along with a store full of customers. 'Faith' sees Hathaway reinstated at the hospital. In 'Tribes', Greene is accused of racism after he treats a white gunshot victim before a black man with the same injuries. 'You Bet Your Life' sees Carter being placed on probation after undermining the judgement of his superiors. 'Calling Dr Hathaway' finds Hathaway scoring well in her medical school admissions test - but realising she enjoys her work as a nurse too much to change her career. In 'Random Acts', Greene gets beaten up in the hospital toilets by an unknown assailant. 'Make a Wish' finds Ross giving Hathaway a surprise birthday party - at her place. Finally, in 'One More for the Road', Greene goes on a rampage while Ross and Hathaway share their first kiss.

Synopsis

In the emergency room of County General Hospital the difference between life and death rests on the split-second decisions of its dedicated physicians and medical personnel. These healers deal with AIDS, a brutal attack and the departure of a beloved colleague. Laura Innes joins the cast.

ER's third season sees it return to the top form it was in during its first year. While the second season occasionally floundered, seeming sometimes more like soap opera than medical drama, the third season sees a return to a focus on the hospital and its patients, and how they effect the lives of the series regulars.
The show still has its ongoing storylines - Jeanie's coming to terms with her HIV+ status, the relationship between Benton and recurring guest character Carla, Ross and Hathaway, etc, but these tend not to dominate episodes as they might have in series two, but instead exist almost in the background as the doctors and nurses go about their daily business.
Again, solid performances are turned in by all actors, both series regulars and guest artists, leaving no doubt as to why they were awarded the 1996/97 SAG award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
The DVD transfers are good - again the episodes are presented in widescreen format which looks superb. On a number of episodes though I noticed a thin grey line at the bottom of the screen - possibly evidence of a less-than-stellar transfer. Otherwise both audio and picture quality are good and suffer no major problems.
There are not a great number of extras in this box set, what there is however follows the trend set down by the previous two season releases: an out-takes reel, a few deleted scenes, and two fairly interesting documentaries - one episode-specific (Fear of Flying) and one general (The Nurses Station). Also included is very interesting and so all-too-short Easter Egg documentary on the fake blood used in the show, and audio commentaries on two episodes which (unlike season two's commentaries) are both interesting and entertaining and so well worth a listen.

ER Series 3 Cast: Anthony Edwards (Dr. Mark Greene); George Clooney (Dr. Doug Ross); Sherry Stringfield (Dr. Susan Lewis - until 3.8); Noah Wyle (Dr. John Carter); Julianna Margulies (Nurse Carol Hathaway); Gloria Reuben (PA Jeanie Boulet); Laura Innes (Dr. Kerry Weaver); Eriq La Salle (Dr. Peter Benton)

The third season of ER (Sep. 26-1996-May 15, 1997) returns the show to the more technical feel of the first season, but with a deft balance with the personal matters facing the leading characters. It showcases all the finest elements of the first two series - originality, emotion, excellent craft, and an inimitable mix of drama and humour - while pointing in the direction of the series to come.

Each character has their fair share of trials and tribulations this season. Greene (Anthony Edwards) throws himself into the dating game again, enjoying notable relationships with Nurse Chuny Marquez (Laura Ceron) and Dr. Nina Pomerantz (recurring Season 3 star Jami Gertz), but also struggling to juggle work with fatherhood to eight-year-old daughter Rachel (Yvonne Zima.) In the final episodes of the season, Greene has to confront some issues after being viciously attacked in the men's bathroom in "Random Acts."

Ross' (George Clooney) lifestyle gets drastically out of hand until he gets a wake-up call in "Last Call," where one of his conquests dies from a drug overdose. For the rest of the season, Ross stays out of romantic entanglement and spends more time focusing on his patients; in this season, the real integrity of Ross comes through, particularly in his dealings with recurring Season 3 character Charlie (Kirsten Dunst.)

The first main cast member to leave is Lewis (Sherry Stringfield) in "Union Station.

Purchased first three series but did not watch them for a while, so 30 day return offered by Amazon expired.
Horror of horrors when we opened the first series - DOUBLE SIDED DISCS!!
Series one we just about got through with numerous stutters - series two first and second discs faulty on one side.
I think Amazon should as a policy make it very clear on the listing when a product uses the double sided disc format - we could all then avoid like the plague and keep doing so until the manufacturers realize this format is totally unacceptable

These are the same discs that are in the complete box set, and are of terrible quality. Amazon refunded me, but I had all they hassle and cost of returning all 15 sets. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. Such a pitty, because the series is brilliant.

This series compaired to season 1+2 is the best so far, the lives of the Docs'nurses...etc are brilliantly balanced with the plights of individual patients! Standout episodes include 'Random Acts' when Mark Greene is the victim instead of Doctor. The continution of Mark's storyline, Benton's relationship with Carla, the departure of Susan, Jenine coming to terms with her HIV, and Carter emerging as the great doctor he is in later series...
Overall money well spend

I adore this series and when I bought this I looked at earlier reviews. Many of them spoke of the poor quality of the discs. Well, I can't say I believed them. What a fool...they were right. I am not sure that I want to buy the rest of the series if they are all as poor as the first 5 series that I have already bought. Shame really, such a good quality programme.
