New Page: Classic Promos for St. Elsewhere

Tune in to enjoy some dying patients.
Thanks to the efforts of nostalgic TV viewers on YouTube, you can watch old promos for upcoming episodes of St. Elsewhere. I have compiled them into a new page added to the main menu bar, "Promos".

Most of them are from NBC broadcasts, and include promos for other classic shows. I am particularly amused by the presence of the short-lived Geena Davis-Bronson Pinchot sitcom, Sara.

Here's a promo for the series finale to get you started on your trip down memory lane:

New Site Feature: Episode Pages

If you've clicked on this website over the past two days, you may have noticed that I've been making posts that are titled with episode titles and contain a description of the episode.

The purpose of this is to populate the Episode Guide with individual pages for each episode. I've added a link to each of these posts in the Episode Guide page, and this enables those who are watching the series on Hulu to post comments on an episode-by-episode basis. If and when I have time, I can go back through these pages and add trivia and comments myself.
