|What's not to love?!|
Anyway, this month's obsession has been....E.R. L got the entire boxed set for Christmas (that's 15 seasons, folks!) and we've been steadily working our way through them. I watched them all the first time around, but as they first aired in 1994, it's safe to say my memories are a little hazy. Let's just say I partied hard at university! It's been a complete treat to watch and I'd almost forgotten just how much I loved the show. This group obsession has meant that our catch ups always involve a conversation about what's going on, who's with who, who's died, collapsed, been attacked etc. We're casually dropping medical terminology into all of our chats over vino, and barking "give me the bullet" as we sit down to gossip.
If you're a fan (and apologies if not, this will all seem super banal to you) I've just finished season 5. Mark Greene's dad just died, and Carter survived a near fatal stabbing. I've got through almost a whole roll of kitchen roll due to sobbing (why don't I have tissues?) and have stayed up way too late on many occasions as I just can't stop watching. I swear I heard my ovaries squeak during scenes involving Doug Ross and small children. I know the worst is yet to come as Dr Greene doesn't die until season 8. However the Clooney does make a reappearance in Season 15, so worth holding on.
Hmm maybe I should take a break. I do sound a little obsessive. Anyone have any boxed sets to recommend?!
