Just Leave Me At the Side of the Road


I would rather be left to die at the side of the road in a blinding snowstorm than to ever ever be a patient at Seattle Grace. My chances of survival would be a hell of a lot better.

What in the name of Shonda Rhimes is going on with that show anyway? Have they taken leave of their senses? First they totally screw up the Callie/Erica storyline by turning it into a bad joke when they might have actually managed a real life, non-stereotypical love story. Then they take a legitimate conflict (Erica's fury over the stolen transplant heart and Seattle Grace's cavalier handling of the incident) and gloss over it in forty-five seconds of air time. Of course Erica Hahn left Seattle Grace. Wouldn't you? Would you want to be on staff with that group of crazies?

And now I'm watching Thursday's episode on line and a nut job intern stripped off her top and dragged a scalpel over her shoulder. If this is what goes on in med school I'd rather take my troubles to a vet. I'll bet the level of compassion and sanity would be higher.

Enough already with Dead Denny. If you're going to dump Izzy, do it and get it over with even if you are messing with the best chemistry in the show. (Izzy and Alex, of course.)

I like so few shows. I mean, what have I got on my list: Dancing With the Dopey Stars, Desperate Housewives, and Grey's Anatomy. Is it so much to ask that they keep from jumping the shark?

I agree with all of the above. I'm so disappointed in the season. If it were a real hospital, it would be shut down for sure. The dept of Health would have a field day.
This sweep month too. What is Shonda thinking?

I stopped watching after the first season. Seems that was the right thing to do. *g* I prefer Bones and NCIS. *G*

I have given up watching the show. It used to be one of the few shows I loved, but finally I got fed up and gave it up. Robin T.

ROFL!! I am not familiar with the program, but I agree totally with the concept of watching only a few shows. Is it too much to ask that there be just a little bit of sense and grace.

DH watches 'House' It has to be a guy thing.

Enjoyed catching up a bit.

There is a hysterical promo attached to this review that pretty much covers it: http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com/entertainment_tv/2008/12/greys-anatomy.html
