‘Emergency Room’: Wonderful, Twist Aside
Not everything needs a twist. Tynan DeLong and Colin Burgess’s short Emergency Room is so well-executed at its simplest core idea–nurse/doctor isn’t sure how to contribute to life-saving surgery in a tense ER–that it’s worth featuring in spite of an ending that felt almost too rational for such a heightened and poignant commentary on out-of-their-depth professionals phoning it in.
Either way, certainly worth a watch both as a case study of an endorsement for veering from twists and as a celebration of two creators who made a very good thing.
