The medical drama has been a staple of TV since … well, since forever. But when ER, with its dizzying camera work and cinema vérité style, rushed on to the NBC airwaves in 1994, the hospital show felt new again. Admittedly, as the seasons went on and the Clooneys and Margulieses left, ER lost some of its allure. But it’s still one of the quintessential doctor-and-nurse series, and one of the more emotionally affecting. 15 seasons, 249 hours.
