Pick of the Week: A Major Return

When a show is in its final year, it’s great to see former cast members return to pay their respects to the show that made their careers.

And this week, you may just see the best example of that we’ve possibly ever seen…

My Pick of the Week is “ER.”

According to the official NBC press release, Ernest Borgnine and Susan Sarandon are guest starring in the episode, along with the returns of Eriq La Salle (Benton), Noah Wyle (Carter), and Julianna Marguiles (Hathaway). But there are no pictures from the episode on the NBC press site, because the network is trying to keep the worst kept secret in television.

This is the episode we should also see George Clooney.

When you’re as big of a star as Clooney, you can blow off things like this. But instead, he has decided to honor his fans and the show that helped make him a star. You have to admire that.

Of course, this isn’t the first time Clooney has made a return to the show. He also came back in a surprise cameo to help Julianna Marguiles leave the show—which in my opinion, is one of the most romantic moments in TV history. It’s kind of a shame that the show wasn’t able to keep it a secret this time.

But then, I wouldn’t have picked it, would I?

“ER” airs Thursday, March 12th at 10 p.m. on NBC…
