Scoop and Run 

Thanksgiving at County is quiet, with the normal number of routine (or nearly so) emergencies. But Abby makes up for the lack of excitement while returning to the hospital as the doctor on a helicopter transport.

musical score
22 November 2006 | by sillylizard43See all my reviews

i am going crazy trying to identify and locate the music being sung under the voice over on the commercial(s) for the ER episode to be aired 23 Nov 06. i have heard it on a couple of other network dramas this season. all i can be clear about it is the refrain "alleluia, alleluia" Please Help. in other opinions, I have enjoyed Micheal Crichton's writing since I first saw "Andromeda Strain," the movie. I have read most (not necessarily all) of his books, and definitely all of his medically themed mysteries. his novel "Sphere" was pretty good, and I've enjoyed his non-fiction too. I was surprised to find out that he wrote Jurassic Park - I enjoyed all the movies but have yet to decide to read the book. The movie "Coma," based on his book, was ground breaking at the time. An interesting piece of trivia is that Tom Selleck has an uncredited (bit) part in that movie - no lines, he is a cadaver.
