    It's like "M*A*S*H" with just the helicopters showing up and no laughs. "E.R." is all trauma; you never get to know enough about the patients or get involved with them. It's just treat, release and move on. [18 Sep 1994]

    Crichton ... has infused "E.R." with a contemporary, darkly humorous believability. [18 Sep 1994]

    There are some over-the-top scenes, and no indication yet that these writers know, any better than those on "NYPD Blue," what to do with Sherry Stringfield. [15 Sep 1994]

    Exhausting. With documentary precision and harrowing efficiency, E.R. drops you in the emergency room and leaves you there to squirm. [17 Sep 1994]
