From Amazon.co.uk

Set in a Chicago County General Hospital, the multi-Emmy winning ER is very much in the tradition established by the earlier Hill Street Blues. Like that series, ER also features a range of strong characters whose personal lives often reflect the turmoil of their working environment. It also similarly features a deft, fast-moving mix of comedy, intrigue and tragedy. It could also be seen as a precursor to The West Wing, in that we regard with some awe the ability of these characters to keep on top of the mounting chaos in their day-to-day lives and the myriad problems thrown at them. In ER, this chaos may mean crack addicts, violent patients tumbling through plate glass screens, vindictive colleagues or a chief of staff who insists that fellow surgeons operate on his sick dog.

The first series is best known for introducing George Clooney to the world as the likable but maverick Dr Ross; the show has often featured star guests such as Sally Field and Ewan McGregor, among others, while several seasons have seen the coming and going of various personnel. However, if one character embodies the strength of ER it's Dr Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), whose dedication to his job has seen him turn down lucrative and cosier offers in the private sector, and who is an exemplar of decency, selflessness and emotional stability. The episodes dealing with his father's death were among the most moving in the series, touching as they did on a theme never far from ER's surface, that of reconciliation with mortality. --David Stubbs

I bought this box set because, like many, I got into ER at the start of season 4 and totally missed the first 3 seasons. I am glad I did, this is brilliant.
It only takes about 2 episodes for this first season to get up to speed, and I mean speed. Most people have seen at least one episode of ER and most marvel at the pace of the program. It is constant. I guess we have started to get used to it now after 10 seasons but going back to the start really brings home the pioneering aspects of this first season.
Pioneering why? ER is one of the first TV programmes to not bother to explain everything in minute detail. Who cares if the audience do no know what a 'thoracotomy' or 'blood gas' actually are. They are doctors, they all know it so why waste plot time explaining stuff! Also, the large use of tracking shots (where the camera follows the actors between many scenes without a cut or break) really makes you think that you are in the hospital with them. It turns out after watching the special features that this was to save money, but it is fab!
Each episode is very good blend of serious drama and humour. Who can forget the brilliant comedy characters such as the University 'Behaviour Analyst' who is studying the length of time it takes to annoy someone. There is some brilliant, blink and you will miss them, comedy skits too: the man with the arrow who was waiting for 20 minutes, the sun burn victim, the kid with his head stuck in a stuffed tiger. I could go on! A special mention must go to Noah Wyle who is an excellent comedy actor that seems to have been under used in later seasons as he has become more 'senior'.

Prior to buying this DVD I had seen perhaps 2 episodes of ER, from the current series on E4. That series is OK, but not outstanding.
Anyway, after reading many exceptional reviews of the first series I decided to buy the DVD, and from the Pilot onwards I found myself watching four episodes a day, more if I got the chance.
What can I say? This show is unbelievably compelling, and the characters are so well written and played that you get to know them so well in the space of the first couple of episodes. The medical scenarios are interesting too but it all boils down to these characters and how daily events, both at the hospital and away from it, affect their lives.
The show has won so many awards, and rightly so.
If you've seen this already I'm sure you like it enough to buy this. If not, then I strongly suggest you do, because it is one of the best things ever to have been shown on TV.

If you are planning to buy this, then i will assume that you know ER is great and that these episodes are no different. I own the Region 1 version of this dvd collection and as such will write a brief review of the dvd package.
Pros:
Picture - great picture, clean distinct colours, shown in anamorphic 16:9 (widescreen)
Volume of episodes - 24 episodes each 45 minutes so thats err 1080 minutes (i think) - 18 hours worth of viewing for your money
Extras - great documentary about the beginning of ER, with Spielberg, John Wells and much of the cast. Also good commentaries on a couple of the episodes. Outtakes etc and stuff about the medical side of ER
Susan Lewis - Looking pretty damn hot, and there's George Clooney for the ladies!
Cons :
The discs - they are flippers so they can easily become damaged if not properly looked after
Case - cardboard so could get damaged
Sound - only dolby 2.0 so not great but I suppose it was never intended to be a surround sound experience
Bascially its a great purchase, funny to see everyone looking so young, but the episodes are as fresh now as they were then. You learn of Carters first days, Chen's obsessive need to be the best, and Bentons arrogance starting to peak! Well worth having!

Own the first series of America's premiere hospital drama that makes it's British pretender (Casualty and Holby City) look like 'Carry on Doctor'
The show that launched the career of George Clooney (Ocean Eleven) making him an international superstar and won the cast and writer Micheal Crichton (Jurassic Park) more awards than you can throw a stick at.
Meet the original cast that have become household names including Anthony Edwards (Top Gun), Noah Wyle (A Few Good Men) and Eric La Salle (Coming To America)
Relive the day to day lives of County General's finest and enjoy some of the classic moments that this masterpiece of TV has provided from Nurse Hathaway's (Julianna Margulies) attempted suicide to the episode that reportedly traumatised America, 'Loves Labor Lost' where Dr Greene (Anthony Edwards) battles to save the lives of Jodie O'Brien, a pregnant mother and her unborn child in a race against the clock, in what is one of the finest hours a TV drama has ever produced.
Forget Friends or The Soprano's this is TV that you will want to watch over and over again, a rollercoaster of emotions that only the American's seem to be able to produce.
For entertainment you will not find better value for money, happy watching.
