The Way Death Should Be-A Perfect Ending
2 April 2009 | by jakobgschwarzSee all my reviews

Yes, it's true ER lost its flair years ago, but the show always still had something. It was always fun to watch. I was sorry to hear the show was ending, even though I knew it was for the best. To be honest, I was expecting some rather soap operaish ending, but never this. The end of ER was absolutely beautiful. The episode reminded us of everything that made ER so good: the drama, the suspense, the tension, the love. Sure there were the occasional moments we could have done without, a problem that has plagued the show in recent seasons, but overall it was very well executed. The last shot where the camera slowly pulls out while the theme music fades in was exactly how the show should have ended. Ending the show with the message that life goes on, the characters live on, doing what they've always done, but giving us, the viewer, a chance to say goodbye. ER was undoubtedly the greatest medical drama ever made. Quite simply, it was one of the best dramas ever. It had its bumpy spots, but this show was special. And we will never, ever forget it.
