5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Season of ER Jan. 14 2008
By Val Wexler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I'm quite surprised by some of the other reviews I have read for this 8th season of ER. I found it to be refreshing and surprising. We received a very well-rounded view of many characters we had come to know, both inside and outside of the hospital. I very much enjoyed the story lines that took place on both levels. Between Dr. Benton and his family situation, Abby and her neighbor troubles, and the deteriorating home life on Doctors Greene and Corday, the hospital wasn't the only place with action. One character that really stands out in this season is Dr. Weaver. She begins the season angry and vengeful, but suddenly heroic on a dark and stormy night inside a crashed ambulance. And it's on that night where we see her take a true turn, finally towards love, and we find her emerging onto a more personable level. And while every season has been like that to a point with its characters, I thought season 8 really shined with this balance. Not only that, but we also got to see sides of doctors that we had never really been aware of before. Season 8 showed us that Dr. Chen actually knew how to stand up for herself. It showed us that Dr. Carter had successfully overcome his demons and was ready to step up as a true leader, admist family problems of his own. And perhaps most surprising of all was the softer side of the loud and proud Dr. Romano, who not only quietly counseled Dr. Corday as she dealt with the news that Dr. Greene's tumor had returned, but he also showed an emotional moment during surgery as he referred to Greene's death.
I'd go as far as to say the majority of the episodes during season 8 were remarkable, and I'm thrilled they are now available to us on DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where are the extras? Jan. 31 2008
By Readz Alot - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We can, of course, argue endlessly over which seasons are 'best' and which episodes are 'best', and there is no right or wrong answer, since we all have different tastes. IMO, Season 8 wasn't one of the better of the 'middle' seasons. I found most of the Dr. Greene/Elizabeth/Rachel stuff to be tiresome in the extreme, Kerry's 'outing' very badly handled, the Nicole story pointless, and Benton's paternity story-line utterly tedious. On the other hand, the return of Dr. Lewis and the storylines with Carter's mom were very enjoyable. Still, I generally preferred Seasons 6,7 and 9.

Be that as it may -- the DVDs. It seems that as the series goes on the DVDs become more and more bare-bones, while the price remains about the same. The extras include the usual deleted scenes (some of which were not actually deleted ...), and a very short gag reel, (which took some hunting down -- it was on a different disc than the box claimed) about a quarter of which consists of scenes of Tony Edwards surfing in Hawaii. That's it. No commentary tracks. While the box claims to have French language subtitles, the discs only offer English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 8--Dr. Greene's story March 20 2009
By N. Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Yes, this season is full of the medical drama we've come to expect. But the main story line is around Dr. Greene-- his new family with Elizabeth, his teen daughter, his relationships at the hospital, and his losing battle with the brain tumor diagnosed in Season 7.

The episode in which Greene and his family go to stay in a tranquil house in Hawaii is without a doubt one of the very best in the entire series. I don't think anyone can see it without tears. Greene is the good father and good man we've come to care about, Elizabeth the strong woman we respect, and Greene's daughter gives a fine performance. It's moving, life-affirming, and honors the characters in a way that fans of the show will appreciate.

A strong season.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last of the good years... Feb. 18 2008
By Christopher Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I would say that season eight was the last of the good years. Dr. Green leaves the show and can never return and the story lines just aren't quite as engaging as they previously were. Most importantly, almost all of the visual integrity is gone. I loved the early shows and their long, uncut steady cam shots. It seems as the show progressed through the years this went away and i find it really takes away from the ER style. All in all though, season 8 is still worth the watch and it provides enough excitement, at least it did for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Last of the Good Years Nov. 5 2007
By Timothy T. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After a dismissal seventh season, ER did bounce back some with Season 8. One of the best surprises early on was the return of Sherry Stringfield as Dr.Susan Lewis, whose character was strong and compelling for the first two and a half years of the series before she left. Unfortunately, the writers didn't do all that much with her when they brought her back. We also see the exit of Dr.Peter Benton, which the writers handled very well as they made the circumstances feel real for the character plus it allowed the thankful exit of Dr.Cleo, who seemed to be nothing more than Peter's girlfriend, but the writers did a terrible job with the exit of Anthony Edwards as Dr.Greene. He deserved a much better farewell than that beach episode, which was so flawed that much of it is barely memorable. What does stick in my memory is his spoiled brat, teenage daughter coming off like she must be miserable with the world for having had such a terrible life so far, which wasn't the case if you watch episodes from the previous seasons. The scene where she releases the ballons after his funeral also felt pseudo-like, but the fact that a different girl played his daughter with this season might be the reason. Personally, despite Dr.Greene having had a tumor in a previous storyline, the producers should have allowed him to be written out of the show rather than be killed off. The worst episode though was when Weaver mandates the staff to take a class on sexual misconducts/harassment in the workplace, which features Carter and Luka fencing(yes, give us viewers a break, please!)but what helped make ER a good enough season this time around was getting rid of Dr.Dave while getting to know and love Abby a lot more as she transformed from the once medical student to the new Carol Hathaway. Dr.Kerry Weaver and Dr.Chen also have workplace conflicts, and this storyline proved to be one of the show's best throughout the season as the writers created a realistic portrayl of what happens when mishandled patient care leads to devastating consequences. Best episode of the season: "Beyond Repair."
