I've spent the last few years not watching really watching television, but have sort of started watching The Office and 30 Rock, two of the funniest television shows I've ever seen. I've caught up with both of them on Netflix, and now rarely miss an episode. Because NBC is on at 10pm, I find myself usually having ER on when I get ready for bed. The show is at once familiar and foreign to me - the stories and situations are the same, but the characters are different.
I noticed that Angela Basset, one of my favorite actresses, is on, and admit to being curious about the return of Anthony Edwards. Talk about a great television actor. Tonight's episode, which integrated in flashbacks of Edwards' character working on Basset's character's son, while Edwards was battling his losing battle with cancer, was amazing. I couldn't turn away. Wow. Very powerful, and it was just so cool to see him back, as well as a few other characters who made cameos.
Anyhow, I'm glad I watched. I'm going to be paying more and more attention to ER as it comes to a close this season.
