It's been running for nearly fifteen years and there's not a single member of the original cast left but ER amazingly shows no sign of slowing down. Based on a film script by Michael Crichton, the series evolved into a weekly slice of emergency medicine at Chicago's county hospital, one that was separated from inferior imitators by smart scripts, great characters and a willingness to shock - Dr Greene's bathroom attack, Lucy and Carter vs schizophrenic knife-wielder. The list of cameos, both in front and behind the camera, is as long as your arm and boasts such names as Quentin Tarantino, Kirsten Dunst and Ewan McGregor.
Hell And High Water (Season 2, Episode 7), where Doug Ross (George Clooney) saves a young boy from drowning during a flood live on TV and is subsequently reinstated at County hospital.

The original ER movie was to be directed by Steven Spielberg until he became more interested in another of Crichton's projects: Jurassic Park.
