It's sad to see that will be the last Christmas on ER
I was thinking the same thing so many memories have come from the Christmas episodes, remember when Abby told Luka she was pregnant, or 'i wasn't running away i was running to you.....' and this time last year when Abby told Luka, ' i need help...'. Ok, i should have said so my Luby memories
THIS was our last ER Christmas episode?? The only word I can think of is 'abyssmal'....and I am not sure it is even spelled right. The ONLY good thing was seeing Jerry in a Santa suit again. Okay...well...maybe the baby reindeer nanosecond with Sam was a heart tugger. Sad. Not one story with characters that we could care about and not one character we care about with a story to care about. I kept wanting something like Sanchez's family to appear...or Morris to have one tiny shred of remorse about dumping his things....or to have Bob appear to handle surgery or SOMETHING. This episode was pathetic......
That was not a Christmas episode. Something worse No story, nothing interesting happened. It was great to see Jerry back and the scenes with Sam and baby were cure but that's all. I begin to hate Sam again She does the same all the time, can't stay with one man
Thanks TPTB.... thanks for this terrible Christmas episode I really appreciate that you screwed the last one

I wouldn't have quite written this episode of as 'abyssmal', however for the final Christmas ER, for me it was lacking the emotion of past years, i enjoyed the episode but it felt like it was missing something but am not sure what?
I have to admit the i did think by the end Archie would have shown a little bit of emotion about his father but i think that him putting the glass and cookie he made at school was his way of showing how he felt.
I like the part with sam and the baby, there was a little bit of sadness there but when Alex woke up, i didn't really care. but sam moving out again!! How many times has she done this over the years? she must have lived in every house in Chicago!!
It was an 'okay' episode, but not quite what i was hoping for.
I like Sam and the little baby, that was sweet, and Morris and the other baby, oh and Jerry being there
But nothing else really stood out.
Im a little gutted though, Sam and Gates was really growing on me
Lorelai Gilmore: I mean, what if I don't like what I like because I like it, but because my mother doesn't like it, and doesn't want me to like it. What if I don't actually like - the music that I like, or the movies, or the clothes, or the men? What if I don't like what I seem to like?

This was a 'meh' eppy for me . They really could have played up Jerry's return, but it felt so.... dull. Like everyone saw him and was like 'Oh, him'. I expected excitement from at least Neela, who saved his life!
The Sam/baby moment was cute, but the whole Tony/Sam thing just further pissed me off. Why do they always have her pushing men away? You'd think that she would have learned by now. How long did they live together, 2 weeks? Nice reoccurring theme there.
These post-Abby/Luby episodes continue to fall flat for me. I just don't feel connected to any of the characters except for Neela and, to a lesser degree, Morris.
But I think the bigger issue to me is Sam. Much of the focus has been on her since Abby left, but I don't feel like the character has enough depth to carry the mantle that Abby left behind. Even after all these years, I'm not invested in Sam and I can't bring myself to care what happens to her because she's the same character, IMO, that she was when we first met her in season 10. As other posters pointed out, she's still moving herself and her kid in with every guy she dates and then taking off again. It's tiresome and wholly uninteresting and shows no growth at all. And nothing personal against Linda Cardellini, but I just don't feel as though she has what it takes to pull off the emotional stuff that they've asked of her this season.
