Note to producers:

Why don't you fucking start a show called ER: Africa already. Jeezus.

However, I wouldn't mind you sending Said to County.

the ratings are down, but ER is still a good show. I like having one or 2 Carter Africa episodes too.

I thought the ratings were pretty steady? I mean obviously not as high as when it first was on, but for a show around 10 yrs old, it's going pretty strong!

I was thinking of if they made an ER: Africa, but the problems would just repeat....with all the killings and stuff; very emotional but not very diverse.....or maybe not...there is a lot they prolly could do.


This episode was excellent and very moving; it went by so fast. And I LOVED it when Pratt just drove through the fire/gunmen baracade. Eff the Janjawi (spelling)! And I was really shocked when he shot the janjawi guy, and I pray that the rest of the janjawi have no idea who did it and don't go killing everyone involved with the doctors.

These Africa episodes are so grueling to watch.

I agree with everything you said. (well, except the "fast" part)

I'm just tired of Africa. Really.

It's like some people get tired of DEK's liberal rants in his shows. Or (what used to be) the incessant back'n'forth between Lana & Clark on Smallville. The early Africa eps did help advance Kovach's character (and to a lesser extent, Carter), however, these episodes smack of exploitation to me.

edit: well, maybe not "exploitation"...how 'bout "agendaism"?

I guess I see it as more of eye-opening than using it for an agenda.

I thought it was good. Hopefully it will help Pratt grow some.

I am glad that we will be back at County next week.

Instead of plane and helicopter crashes, ER Africa could have a doctor eaten by a lion or stepped on by a rhino or something. Or both.

The sad thing is that there is more about the Danfur genocide on a tv drama instead of any of our news shows. Guess the missing blonde in aruba warrants thirty hours a week but genocide is barely a ticker mention.

exactly why it isnt an agenda; it's too important to only be an agenda...if that makes sense.
