anthony edwards' exit from er was the lowest-rated er cast exit. something that had been bugging me for a while is the thought that they had switched in a different actress to portray his daughter (which they did: #1, #2). what really made it stick out is that they actually re-filmed a scene originally played by #1 to use in the “previously on...” clips at the beginning of the show. i think it was funny they got michael ironside to make an appearance in the funeral scene, considering he was in a whopping five episodes. i guess william h. macy dissed them.

i said it before, and i'll say it again: it's going to be a lazy dog-dangling afternoon. then again, i haven't had a whole lot of afternoons in the last year that couldn't be classified that way. i guess if i were really motivated, i'd be checking out the starscene carnival. (and then next weekend is the noho theatre and arts festival.)
