Flatlining

Is anyone else tired of Grey's Anatomy? I am so tired of her weak, whiny woman shtick. "I love him, I don't love him - but I just can't stop thinking, needing, wanting him. I am a better doctor when he loves me, worse when he doesn't." I mean honestly, so weak. I think I would like it more if Kate Walsh (Addison) were back, and Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) were gone. At least Addison was a semi-strong female on the show. Of course, her spin-off show, Private Practice, makes her the "Meredith Grey" of that series. So basically, Shonda Rhimes gives us Doctor Bailey as the only truly strong woman on the show. Christina used to be, but now all of a sudden she's breaking down and pulling a Meredith. I'm so over it.

I agree...I LOVE Grey's Anatomy...don't get me wrong, and I didn't want Meredith to annoy me-been trying to stop it, but she does. I watch for Bailey, I watch for McDreamy and sometimes for Alex...I wanted to love Izzy b/c I love Katherine Heigl, but she's gotten a little crazy. And Yang's confidence "please like me and tell me I'm the best ever" issues are waaaay annoying. Maybe everyone won't agree, but I'd hate for it to become like ER...fabulous in the begginning, but I just don't care about the characters anymore. Maybe Grey's should bring on G. Clooney!! Now there's an idea...the Original McDreamy!

Wish I could contribute here, but I've never watched "Grey's Anatomy." I don't even think Patrick Dempsey is attractive. (Heresy, I know!) I never watched "ER," either, for that matter. "House" is my doctor/hospital show of choice, and oh, how I love it.

Beckers...I promise to still love you even though you are very wrong about Patrick Dempsey =)

Beckers said...

Thank you, Breezy. :) Actually, I misspoke (miswrote?) about Dempsey: I recognize that he is an attractive guy, but he doesn't "do it for me." Neither does George Clooney, for that matter. I look at them and think, "Hmm, cute, but not my style." I much prefer Jesse Spencer, who plays the young Australian doctor on House. He definitely does it for me. ;)

Oh Beckers, you love the man-boys! :)

Although, while I watch Grey's - it's more for the drama, and House for the medical mystery. Speaking of, good season finale last night.

I keep saying that I just want Meredith and Christina to crack a smile once in a blue moon. They depress me. Maybe Grey's has some sort of deal with Prozac- as in they make their viewers need it if they watch too many episodes. But I'm still watching on Thurs. At two hours, it better not disappoint though. Oh and I think McDreamy is icky. So damn self centered and full of himself. Ew.

Clearly TV shows are the center of my world at the moment.
