Must See TV -Especially For Desis

Just want to remind all that tonight at 10 marks Parminder Nagra's, of Bend it Like Beckham fame, debut on NBC's er. Make sure to tune in and support er for finally making that hospital drama truly representative of many of the hospitals around the US.

I can't beleive it took the show a tenth season to finally incorporate a full time Indian doctor into the show.

"In the season premiere, a frazzled Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle) returns from his harrowing mission to the Congo only to be confronted by a hostile Abby (Maura Tierney) while an exotic new British medical student (Parminder Nagra, "Bend It Like Beckham") causes a stir when she unexpectedly helps a patient -- and angers Dr. Chen (Ming-Na) as Dr. Pratt (Mekhi Phifer) flirts with her. In addition: a concerned Dr. Pratt works the margins to help an HIV-infected patient obtain the necessary medical insurance; a woman and her young children are treated after their wrecked car is struck again by a large truck; construction workers add to the chaos of the emergency room; Dr. Romano (Paul McCrane) sports a new look -- and Carter gets an ominous call from Africa. Laura Innes, Alex Kingston, Sherry Stringfield, Sharif Atkins also star. "

I find Nagra's characterizaiton as the "Exotic new British Medical Student" kind of humorous.
