ER – tape 2321

Here’s a few episodes of the Michael Crichton developed medical drama ER. Since I was quite cross about Michael Crichton with Disclosure, perhaps I should leave ER alone.

The episodes here are A Shift in the NightFire in the BellyFevers of Unknown OriginTake These Broken Wings

There’s one of the C4 character idents with Frasier’s John Mahoney.

And another, of Dennis Franz, which appears to have some extra graphics overlaid – fat fingers in presentation?

After the fourth episode, and some ads, recording stops, and underneath there’s an episode of Cheers in progress.

After this, there’s a programme called Get Netted. Do you see what they did there? In it, Medusa  talks about how she started the website for the fetish magazine Skin Two. It’s a short programme.

This is followed by Night Sports wherein Gary Imlach looks forward to the Summer Olympics in Atlanta. With him on the sporty sofa, sprinter Allan Wells and hurdler Kriss Akabusi.

There’s about ten minutes of this before the tape ends.

  1. This tape (and another) have a Nokia ad listed on them. I’m attempting to track down a late 90s spot of theirs which was a sort of ‘look what you’ll be able to do with technology’ thing, showing some teenagers using early mobile internet to check live bus (or perhaps tram) times so they didn’t have to wait too long in the snow.

    I don’t suppose you’ve seen it on any of your tapes? Would love to see it again as it was something that seemed so far-fetched then, but taken for granted now.

    1. Neither of the Nokia ads I’ve listed so far are the one you mention. I’ll try to keep it in mind, and put it up on YouTube if I do come across it. The one you describe sounds like a late 90s one – I haven’t done many tapes from that era yet.

      1. Many thanks – I hope you do!
        (It’s in the same space in my mind as one I saw in America in the mid-90s: a couple checking in at a motel in the middle of nowhere ask the clerk if they have any movies on the TV in the room. The answer is “every film ever made, on demand” – at the time it seemed impossible; now it’s just Netflix.)
