An Open Letter to the Producers and Writers of E.R.

Dear Producers and Writers of E.R.,

With all due respect, we really, really don't give a sh*t about the relationship between Sam and Tony. The fact that you're giving that storyline so much air-time in these, the final episodes of one of the great shows in television history, is insulting and degrading to viewers, especially those who have stuck with the show through thick and thin.

And shame on you for what you've done to the Sam Taggart character. Have any of your current writers gone back and actually watched shows from previous seasons? Can they explain, with a straight face, any rational basis for her current behavior towards Tony? Or perhaps I just missed the episode where Sam was kidnapped and an alien took her place? Or is it perhaps a brain tumor? If so, I hope it's fatal and that the end comes really soon.

In any event, nice job folks. You've managed to make the final episodes almost unwatchable, and have turned Sam into what is perhaps the most despicable character in the history of the show (including her husband, who only shot up the ER and kidnapped their son). If it weren't for the Archie storylines, I might give up entirely.


Still A Fan (barely)
