The new residents are introduced to the ER. A new doctor from the army who knows many advanced procedures is flown to a shark attack on the beach with Mike Leighton and Leighton falls 20 feet from the helicopter. Dr. Guthrie Jr. is promoted to the director of the ER in addition to the OR.
I will never understand the creative decisions behind this show. Bringing in Rob Lowe? That’s something I can get on board with. Introducing three newbie residents? Always worked well for Grey’s Anatomy. But getting rid of Neal and Christa and promoting the asshole Campbell and the sluttish Heather to series regulars? Whaaat?!
That aside, the episode was okay. I thought Mike’s brother falling out of the helicopter was a bit much but it was a nice family-orientated episode.
I like Rob Lowe’s character but now it remains to be seen how long I can continue watching the show for him, Rorish and Jesse …
