1.01 – Old school! Jerry! Timmy! Look at Susan’s hair!!! The instrumental music is really ~intense~. Lol. Gosh look at how old that waiting room is! Haha. The doctor’s lounge! The really badly made ID badges. Jennifer and Rachel! It’s been awhile since I thought about them!! I’ve always wondered about the lack of toilets but they have toilet signs in the pilot, opposite the trauma rooms. Carter’s like a baby in this! Awwh Doug/Carol. I remember when I watched this the first time around I kept waiting for her suicide moment. That was kind of what I knew about the Pilot so everything else was kind of ignored. FRANK!!! Look at that fake snow, can anyone say FAKE! I am sorry I will never find the birth of a baby a magical moment, not even if you play nice music over it. How comes they stopped with having a paediatrician on the floor later on? See they have metal detectors already in the waiting room! Wendy! SHIRI APPLEBY!!! “You set the tone” Carol!! Benton and his surgery!
1.03 – It really bugs me when the names don’t match the pictures in the credits. Haha Carter’s German tourists. Carter’s curtain hair! Gloves or no gloves I would definitely wash my hands after doing what Carter was doing. Carter to the rescue! Oh the start of one of Carter’s many ill advised love interests. The old devoted couple mirrors the old devoted couple that Tony/Sam treat in the series finale. The ER cafeteria! We don’t get to see that later on in the series!
1.04 – Benton being woken by the singing woman! Nice! OMG look at that vending machine! Old school! “I met you my first day.” “My last … or so I thought.” I LOVE the way Carol makes fun of what happened to her <3 <3 <3 <3. Doug’s ‘sensitive to Carol’ policy! LOL! I love how many extras there are during the trauma room scenes! Later on even the minor characters get names. Casen/Lewis. Morganstern <3. Rosemary Clooney!
1.05 – OMG that mobile phone! The crazy lady hearing Princess Diana’s voice! The burping lady! Carter and the wheelchair! Carol/the little boy! The mobile phone affecting the equipment! Haha! You can tell how old this is! OMG it’s the guy who plays Meredith’s dad on GA! He looks so young here!! Dr Green Day! Carter <3! Peter’s brother-in-law! God the birth of a baby is ugly. Doug/Carol … awwh.
1.06 – I find it weird that the episode opens with Carol not being remotely mad at Doug considering the ending of the previous episode. Ivan the liquor store owner! Waiting for the heart episode. Doug <3 <3 <3 <3.
1.07 – And a car came crashing into the ER! This really is the most dangerous place to work! And the guy wasn’t really stabbed! Love the blood alcohol pool bets! CHLOE!!! Rachel! Wait, now there is a reference to Doug showing up at Carol’s place? Did I label them wrong or did they air them in the wrong order?! No wait, it can’t be that because of Ivan the liquor store owner’s storyline. I am so confused! Linda!! Wendy/Rachel! Carol punching Doug in the arm! Jerry coming to Susan’s rescue <3. ARTHUR! The dead guy is still there! Not a lot of Carter in this episode. Isn’t Doug’s son one of the biggest mysteries of the show?! I kept excepting him to show up needing a kidney or something. Susan’s cute cat!!!

I remember the first time I watched that really shocked me. Thanksgiving buffet!!! The turkey man!! Peter making Carter go to thanksgiving dinner with him.

1.12 – Is ER Season 1 the only series on television to have 2 Christmas episodes per season?! I know 1.11 was sort of a pre-Christmas thing but they were playing Christmas music and had decorations which is more than we get in a lot of shows. Lydia, Mark and Haleh singing ‘It’s my party!’ Mark/Lydia and the mistletoe!! Patrick!!! Patrick and Rosemary Clooney singing!! Oh no poor Susan! Div has disappeared! Awkward Carter/Susan moment! I like them “together”/as friends when she comes back but this moment is just so awkward! And yet …. Is it wrong that I am sort of shipping Carter/Susan this time around? Is it bad that this is probably my favourite Susan ship. Carter’s gift to Susan! Chloe!!! Oh dear she’s pregnant! Doug don’t do this!

1.15 – Carter upset with Deb for doing his scut work. Lol. I can’t believe the little girl domestically abuses her mother. That’s so horrible. Susan’s mad at Mark <3. Jeanie!!!!! Whatever happened to that kid that Haleh made Peter mentor?? The very dead body. I cannot believe they’re smoking inside a hospital!! Haha Susan didn’t offer Casen her lighter. The guy with the arrow in the back of his head!!! Jacob!!! The start of Doug/Diane, right? Dr Lewis treating Casen!! Haha! Love the karma! The Elvis impersonators!! Doug <3 <3 <3.
1.16 – Carter and Mark rolling around in the back of the ambulance …. That sounds wrong ….!!! Clearly Carter you wouldn’t wear a coat like that to work!!! Doug/Carol and the snake!!

1.20 – Before I started the series, I read a few articles about the show and they always mention this episode so I was quite apprehensive about it as it sounded really tragic and angsty. Doug/Mark playing ball! Peter’s Mum! Bradley Whitford!! “Will you sign a good well card?” “Sure, who’s it for?” “Me.” Poor little old lady! “Everyone is so old and sick around here.” “Yeah, this is a hospital.”. I have to admit that it is a good episode but not one I get much enjoyment from rewatching!

1.25 – Funny opening scene with Susan/Chloe! Carter falling off his chair! OMG look how young Tunie is!!!!!!!!!!! The whole ‘Blackbird’ singing! Carter’s choice between ER and surgery! I feel so sorry for Susan having a family like that. Ethel and Ada the two VERY old ladies. Susan and Carol sunbathing! We needed more Carol/Susan scenes! Crazy gang girls! Peter’s Mum died!!
