    Love love love CSI. Find forensics fascinating. As for ER, it's the ONLY medical show that I watch -- I get enough of medicine at work -- don't want to watch too much medicine on the tele. Thought last week's ER was wonderful -- especially poignant that Dr. Greene died on HIS terms -- calmly, quietly, in a beautiful place, with his family in the home. He was terminal & didn't want to spend his last moments hooked up to machines. The character was so young -- 38 -- but terminal & died a peaceful death on HIS terms. Quite different from the heroic measures we all see, every day, on terminal/suffering/very elderly people. Can' wait for the season's finale this evening -- makes you think -- how prepared are we, as health care workers, to deal with small pox? Frightening, isn't it?

    O definately plan on watching the season finale of ER tonight. More than anything else, I want to see how (if at all) they address Mark being gone.

    And of course I'll be watching Rachel have her baby!

    Anyone watch Law & Order? I'm absolutely addicted to it! With our local cable, it is on non-stop from 7pm-midnight on one channel or another. Seriously, I'm neglecting things that I should be doing because it's on again! My son hears the theme song and says "OH NOOOOOOOOOOO..."

    I've heard lots of good things about CSI, but haven't been able to catch it yet. What night is it on?

    Geez, I am soo out of it.
    I never seem to have time to turn the tube on.
    I don't have cable or a satalite dish. We get our 3 channels on regular tv. I have kids so there is a "no tv on school nights" rule.
    I HAVE watched ER and Law and Order before but only a time or two. It's too hard to remember what night it's on.
    We do, however, ride the horses and dirt bikes a lot. We play a lot of games together and read and dance and work.
    I have frequently given thought of getting a satalite dish (no cable available here) but cant see paying for tv.
    I am going to try to watch more.

    My husband and I used to watch ER every single week!!
    I found it too emotionally draining. I'd end up crying hysterically with virtually every episode!! (I'm really not a crier either).
    We watched an episode a couple years ago involving a pregnant lady who delivered a preemie that died, and there was a scene about the Mom and Dad and priest baptizing the baby near Lake Michigan! I totally lost it! Turned it off, and never have been able to watch the show again!!!
    Our new choice is The Osbournes--totally mindless and bizarre!!
    Anyone else like Ozzie out there????

    I'm an ER fan but have to wonder what will happen next season, so many of the actors I liked have left the show.

    I didnt see the whole episode tonight, I was attending my college graduation and made it home in time for the final 15 minutes of both ER and CSI...anyone want to fill me in??

    I seem to have the tv on but dont actually watch alot...I am a fan of the Osbournes, all the TLC medical shows, CSI, Law and Order and of course ER

    The nice thing about the summer...I get to catch up on all those episodes I missed while being knee deep in test preparation

    Same here Heather, my son is like...."not again". I've only recently started watching the L&O CI series, and now sorry that I missed all the previous episodes. Well, catch them on reruns I reckon. The SVU series is ok, but not as good as the original or the CI one.
    And the Rachel/baby episode tonight - did anyone else cry at the end? Was that the last show, or is there at least one more?
    Tonight's ER - wow - now I see what all you ER folk mean when you talk about how demanding people (having to wait) can be. ARRRGH!

    I love CSI-understand there will be a new CSI Miami on this fall new show schedule. Love Law and Order too...ER doesn't get me as excited as it used to for some reason and I will always love Friends...Have to say of all the Law and Order spin offs I like the Criminal Intent one-the guy is sexy....Then, there is Survivor BUT usually I don't get the chance to watch many of those shows until much much later, on tape. My husband and I EVEN like Stargate SG1...Who knew???We don't get out much as you can tell...During the day, its pretty much Dora the Explorer, Arthur and things of that nature.....If I had to choose any of the above vs sleep, you KNOW what I would choose!
