Hey, thanks for spoiling it by putting the news in the header. Really. I appreciate it.

-- L. (, May 11, 2000.

Hey... we don't know if Carol will actually LEAVE with Doug... or what's in the scene. A guest star is not "spoiler" material IMHO.

-- debbie (, May 11, 2000.

Any other guest star is not spoiler material. But George Clooney as guest star is, IMO, major spoiler material. If it's not spoiler material, then why all of the speculation about if he'd be on or not?

Apparently, others feel this way also... there are other threads on other boards marked *major spoiler* for tonights episode. I assume it regards Clooney's return. Those posters seem to have regarded it as spoiler material. I could be wrong, as I didn't read them because I was trying to avoid spoilers. But, I'll betcha that those threads do indeed relate to Clooney's return as the *major spoiler* material.

No, actually the news about Clooney broke just last night from Ultimate Nobody knew anything about it before then. I'm personally glad that Clooney is going to show up... but there's no indication of HOW... that's the nice part of the suspense if you ask me. Who wants to be sitting all antsy through the episode ignoring the plot, just wondering "Is George gonna show up? Is he? Is he? Huh? Huh?" I guess I don't have a problem with it.

Also- it's not like Clooney's appearance wasn't telegraphed a mile away.. 1- the box of animal crackers in the last ep, 2- the Sugar Ray guy being cut from this episode- gee I wonder why the episode was "running overtime" eh? and 3- the fact that NBC mysteriously changed the satellite transmission time of the new ep last night so spoilerphobes missed it. Everyone knew that it was likely he would come back... some surprise.

That is fine, but i think that we should respect some of the people's desire to avoid spoilers. Let's try to go by the rules, ok?

-- Rachel (, May 11, 2000.

I'm sorry. I guess I just wasn't thinking.

-- Felicity (, May 11, 2000.

Come on, let up on Felicity. I went to the thread wondering what news she had but not sure if she was questioning him being on it or stating it or just starting a discussion. You could still have not known for sure if you didn't want to by not going to the thread. Besides it'll probably be on the news on the radio or TV later anyway so unless you live in a cave it probably wasn't going to be a surprise tonight. I'm surprised that it was kept quiet this long.

Okay, I have to say, although I am totally anxious, I did not want to know that GC will be on ER. I wanted to be surprised. BUT, if this is true, you have NO idea how excited I am!!!! Up until a week ago I was convinced he won't, but then the fact that NO ONE has said he's not coming seemed a bit susipitous. If this is true, I have to say congrats to them for keeping it SOOOOO quiet. BUt still, even as I read the notice that the review was up and that there was spoiler info, I did not want to know at all, and I did not go to the site to find out inevitably that this would probably be about a GC appearance. I'm not blaming anyone, but I just would have loved to see him walk in and be TOTALLY shocked and start dancing around because DOUG IS BACK!! Maybe I still will be, I have to see it to believe it. I am SO excited. I have to commend ER this year, they have been doing an excellent job these past few months...Doug, Carol,

-- Elaine (, May 11, 2000.

I agree with Diana...when I read the header I did NOT assume that Clooney was going to be on tonight. I just thought it was another discussion of what people think. So don't feel too bad Felicity! I am still not going to hold my breath for him to be on. There has been so much speculation...I won't believe it 'til I see it!

-- amanda (, May 11, 2000.

I KNEW IT...KNEW IT...KNEW IT!!! :) (dancing around...) Thanks Felicity for confirming my suspicions! Great job! LALALALALALA!

-- Joy (, May 11, 2000.

I'll STILL be totally shocked if he shows because until I see him on the tube tonight, I'm a (hopeful) doubting Thomas. I hope it's true, I hope it's true, I hope it's true. What is that? Click your heels together three times? :)

-- Diana (, May 11, 2000.

According to the site mentioned in the question, if you scroll to the comments from E! online, it says they believe George Clooney will be in the season finale, May 18th.
