ER

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: The show regularly shows characters by the Chicago River and either on or near Michigan Avenue, when they are getting lunch or walking to work. Both U of C hospital (where the hospital exteriors are filmed) and Cook Country hospital (where the characters are supposed to work) are about 5 miles from this point. This would be an extremely long distance for them to walk on a routine basis. I'm sure this is done just because Michigan Ave and the river are two of the most scenic parts of Chicago.

Mistakes

However, after the time of death has been called and they're showing the reactions of everyone present in the room (Susan, Carol, Carter, Lydia, Chen), Carol is seen taking the glasses off again, this time with both hands.

Trivia

Doug Ross frequently hung his head low, appearing ashamed or thoughtful or privately amused, depending on the scene. This wasn't just an element of the character: George Clooney had taken to writing his lines on papers, sheets, and other props.
