    I stopped watching years ago when all of the original stars left and they started making Abby a main character. I see the previews/commercials and kind of know what's happening and what actors are on now, but I just lost interest.

    I also stopped watching the show several years ago after most of the original cast left and they just recycyled old storylines.

    But we did watch it enough that we gotta see how it ends.

    Stopped watching after the "Breakfast Club" episode where it was obvious they were trying to pass the torch to the younger no-name cast. My wife still watches faithfully. I might check out the finale just out of curiosity.

    I stopped watching midway through the season about 4 or 5 years ago. I don't remember why I stopped, but I do remember it was the season when John Stamos first showed up as a paramedic.

    I thought about catching some of the last episodes that had the return of former characters they kept hyping. But they never bothered to say exactly when these characters would be returning and I didn't care enough to seek the info out. *shrug*

    I watched the "comeback" episode with Doug and Carol and Benton. I got a huge kick out of the scene where Doug was talking with the current crew about whether or not certain people were still there, and they didn't know any of the same people. It was a great way to either show how long they'd been on or parody the fact that no one anyone knew was still there.

    I'm normally interested in most series finales, but this one doesn't interest me that much. I'll probably wait to hear the reviews and then maybe find it on torrents.

    I've watched all these years (so no need to watch the clip show), it wouldn't be right if I didn't watch the finale.

    I'll watch both. I saw every single episode up until midway through last season, I think. I've seen the last five or six, though, and will finish it up.

    I'll watch both. Like Devdog, I stopped with the Breakfast Club ep. Watched the Clooney/Margulies comeback and it felt like episodes of old. I'll probably end up going back and re-watching all 15 seasons eventually to see what I missed.

    I stopped watching somewhere around the time that Noah Wyle was doing all that Africa crap. It just wasn't the same show anymore. I liked the old Chicago-centered ER with gritty urban storylines. When they started doing too much of the "feel-good cause of the week" I made my exit.

    It still appeals to my wife though and I imagine she will be all over both the finale and the review.

    I should. I haven't watched it in several years, but used to really like this show a whole lot.

    I'll record both and watch both *much* later. I stopped watching several years ago, but have *almost* all of them on DVD (some burned to DVD-Rs, unfortunately some UN-finalized after my burner's drive went bad, a bunch on DVD-RWs).. and I missed a couple over the years due to various recording failures/power outages..

    So even though I'll record them, I'm semi-seriously thinking of just waiting a year or so (until they become *comparatively* cheap), and buying a whole 'er' megaset DVD.. (most everyone else will be on BluRay by then, so hopefully the "cruddy" DVD sets will be cheap).

    I marked do not watch at all. In the beginning many of my friends encouraged me to watch and I figured I would catch it in syndication but as soon as I heard of how many cast changes had been made over the entirity of the series I lost any interest. Just wanted to share. :)

    I'll watch but the series has been poor several years. I saw the one this week and it seemed to have nothing in it like I expected to see all these old faces and what they had been doing, instead just a typical episode.

    I don't like that they act like they are not there to make big money from the poor, and act like they are so giving and charitable, and even the silliness of seeing an ER doctor go chasing someone out in the city to try to bring him back in!! I mean he isn't even that persons doctor, just an ER doc, even someones regular doctor would never do that (unless he feared some kind of liability from wrong meds or something) and all these people act like they don't charge. Then the patients NEVER ask or consider options based on cost, nor do we ever see stuff canceled because the insurance co said no.

    ER could have been a good voice to get changes, instead it did nothing. Ever hear even once this isn't covered, it's pre-existing, pay up now or you are out on street. That would be real and make a good show too that might help get this changed!!

    you want to know why thery act like no one pays??

    BECAUSE IN ILLINOIS (and many other states) IT IS ILLEGAL TO REFUSE EMERGENCY MEDICAL TREATMENT TO ANYONE.

    Duh. They ARE providing free treatment in most cases.

    I've taken the night off work, and have a few nurse and paramedic friends (along with the Kiddo) coming over to watch the whole three hours. Some of them have never missed an episode, and some (like me) quit watching a few seasons ago (I started watching again this season when I realized it was the last)...but we all still love it. The Kiddo says that he can't remember a time when it wasn't on, since he was three when it first aired.

    I suspect there will be much wine and tears. :eek:

    I'll watch both, eventually. I've watched the entire run of the series, including slogging through the Africa stuff. I've never been a John Carter fan.

    It used to be "must see TV", but now it's "laundry folding TV"--something I can half watch while doing something else and not risk missing something like on my good shows.
