What is it with male buttocks on this show?

What is it with all the male buttocks shown on ER? First it was Carter and then the other night it was Morganstern. And then they had Mark in the nude once.

And this is a problem how?

Don't forget Taglieri. He was nekkid, too.

Hey I liked Carter's butt! How is that a problem?

-- Cammie (rmaelhorn@home.com), June 28, 2000.

I didn't say it was a problem. I just think it's kinda strange...

Don't forget the guy with the sunflower stuck, you know...

A number of species of primate use buttock display to signal status or attract mates. Perhaps TPTB are saying "hey we're the best show, come on, y'all!"

Hey, it could work. ;)

I guess it's the response to the number of times they show women's breasts in theatrical movies...we get guys' butts on TV (I think ER has NYPD BLUE beat! LOL!). :)

I don't know about you guys, but (no pun intented!:) I would take a gander at Carter's booty over Dennis Franz's any day of the week!! :)

I thought I was a big fan but I don't remember seeing anyone's butt! Where have I been? What epi's are these butts in? Can I request a butt viewing? Yes, I'd like to order a Luka butt viewing - soft lighting, romantic music - private room, champagne and strawberries on the side table - you know, the works....

-- Linda (l.brown@mindspring.com), June 29, 2000.

I presume we're all happy with not seeing FEMALE butts on the show. :P

-- Cecelia (evilstoat@hotmail.com), June 30, 2000.

Oh but we did see a female buttocks on the show.Remember Anna in Gut Reaction.The look on Carter's face at that moment was priceless and Noah genuinely blushed!!!

-- caroline (charcoal107@yahoo.no), June 30, 2000.

Linda, let's start petitioning TPTB now for a Luka butt-baring!!! And, yes, where have you been? :) Seriously, I'd forgotten there'd been so much of this...Morgenstern cracked (no pun intended) me up the other day when the rerun aired on TNT! I'd forgotten about Anna too and guess I'll see that when the epi airs. Maybe we should start a new thread...whose butt would you like to see or what body part has been mentioned most or...never mind! :) Can anyone tell that I'm really, really bored right now?

-- Diana (dilynne@juno.com), June 30, 2000.

LOL, Diana, the summertime reruns will do that to you. :P

I think Gut Reaction must have been one of the few eps I haven't seen. And since I don't have cable TV, I guess I never will. One of these days I'll break down and start getting people to send me tapes...Not that I'm hot to see Anna's butt or anything!

As for butts we'd most like to see...Sure, all the men are hotties. I know I'd be in the minority if I expressed any such wish about Mark, though, so I'll just keep my lip zipped. (Yeah, yeah, he's scrawny and you've all seen too much of his chest already. I still think he's cute.) :P

-- Cecelia (evilstoat@hotmail.com), June 30, 2000.

Didn't we see Anthony Edwards butt in "Top Gun"? I know we at least saw him in his skivvies. I think maybe ER should do a "full monty" episode and lets just line up all the guys and take a look (from behind of course - this is TV, not HBO). Paul McCrane has a pretty hard body. I bet you his butt is worth a look. In keeping with the philosophy of the great Shaft, it's their duty to bare those booties!

-- Linda (l.brown@mindspring.com), July 01, 2000.

How did I miss Carter's booty show??? Which epi was this??? (I think I've seen all the others.)

-- S. Trelles (trelles@ix.netcom.com), July 03, 2000.

It was the epi where Dennis Gant gives him a shot (in his behind), so sometime in season 3. Don't remember the name of the epi but this narrows it down to a few (Dennis Gant was only in a few). After getting the shot, Carter had a reaction to the med and couln't move his neck. He was on rounds and Benton stared at him when he was talking with his head on his shoulder. No one else noticed. I thought it was very funny.
