“E.R.-The Complete 12th Season”
Reviewer:
Wayne Klein
Studio: Warner Home Video
Genre:
TV-Series
Release Date:
1/12/09
Special Features:

Deleted scenes

Review:

Every show like every human life has a expiration date. By the 12th season of “E.R.” the series had overstayed its welcome. The storylines had become predictable. The show had overstayed its welcome, jumped the shark however you want to put it. It’s not that the show suddenly became BAD just uninspired. ***

Even the love affair between Maura Tierney’s character and Goran Visnjic’s seemed forced during the 12th season and while I think both are terrific actors they couldn’t do much with these by-the-numbers plots. We did a solid group of guest tars for the 12th season but they couldn’t save “E.R.” as it went into cardiac arrest. ---

Image & Sound:

As usual “E.R.” looks better than a cardiac monitor for a patient in nearly perfect shape; there are some minor irregularities BUT they aren’t all that distracting. Aliasing and edge enhancement occasionally crop up. Blacks large look good although they occasional are crushed. Detail is nice throughout and the anamorphic presentation in 1.78:1 looks quite pleasing even upscaled. ***

Audio sounds fine throughout with a nice 2.0 mix that is, naturally, dialogue driven except during scenes where there is action or someone is dying. I’m a bit perplexed as to why this isn’t presented in 5.1 since a lot of TV shows are.

Special Features:

Deleted scenes are the only extras here. It’s a pity we should be taken into the writer’s room to find out why the plots have become so lame.

Final Words:

“E.R.” jumped the sharp far before the 12th season unfortunately NBC didn’t care and neither did its remaining fans.
