my first and last grey's suck-atomy post

am i the only female on the face of the earth that just thinks this show has gone to the crapper?

i remember why i loved the show in its first season.... the characters were FUNNY and charming, and the show felt like it was more about their relationship, than it was about doctor stuff. but as the seasons have gone on, it's definitely gotten more "doctorey" and less outside the hospital. and i think that sucks. because if i want to watch a show about all sorts of patients and surgeries, then i'll watch ER. what made this show so great was that the doctor stuff was never really the focus. the relationships and interaction between the main characters were the focus.

moving on. i loathe meredith. and all i kept thinking while i watched the season premiere was, "who the FUCK put that color lipstick on her no lips???" they should be fired. but back to hating meredith. i wish she would have died last season. she's so worthless. all she does is complain and whine. ALL.THE.TIME. i hate it. she brings me down, man. she's like this ball of worthless, negative, woe is me, energy. i get exhausted just trying to find reasons to like her.

and then there's izzy. i loved her spunk and i LOVED her love story with denny. that was truly great. but don't get me all invested in her "love" for the guy who dies, to have to turn around and suddenly be completely and totally in love with george?!?!!! GEORGE? give me a fucking break. how unrealistic is that? completely. and i cannot be the only one who thinks that the twosome of "gizzy" is the biggest load of crap. i'm more mad that she's just over denny like that. omg, i think i truly have issues with people getting over loved ones who die. seriously. but i think in a way i feel cheated as a viewer. i was invested in her loving denny. i felt her pain when he died and she couldn't get off the bathroom floor. that was so heartbreakingly realistic to me. but then she's over it. and she's in love with george. and she's always been in love with george. and it just makes everything a freaking joke. not to mention the fact that her constant rants are annoying. now izzy is the smart, thoughtful, and inspirational one? most of the time i just want to smack her.

alex loving that stupid, lying, hospital girl is lame. LAME. he doesn't love her and i don't buy it that he does. not even for a second.

george leaving callie (next week or whenever) and callie turning from a super likeable and understandable character, to a weak and bitchy one sucks.

i honestly don't know why i even watch this show?!?! maybe i keep thinking it will get better. or the characters will change BACK to being likeable again... or they'll get new writers who kill off meredith and everyone else who sucks in one big hospital explosion! oh wait, they already did that.. but stupid head meredith didn't die. dammit.

at least christina and bailey are still the same. their characters i think are the only ones who have remained fairly consistant. for now...

I have always hated Meredith. I think it was the whole "choose me....love me" crap that truned me off to her. And I LOVE this Izzy/George thing. I think George is the most loveable character on the show and I can see how someone could fall for him. Eh, I am still going to watch - I think some interesting stuff might pop up with the new class of interns.

Alison said...

I guess I'm glad I don't watch it then. It sounds like the only good thing about the show is the "soundtrack" or the song they feature. :)

I totally agree with your blog! I was Grey's biggest fan! I LOVED the show. I'm not going to turn my back on it yet. Every relationship has it's ups and downs, and my relationship w/ GA is no different! haha! I wrote a blog about GA and we have the same views on most of it. I've always hated Meredith too. She's way too whiney and WAY too skinny! ;)

RWA said...

Wow.

That's some pretty strong criticism. Maybe you should send that to ABC in an e-mail or a letter?

:)

Andie said...

I couldn't agree more. I could have written that post myself...

and I also am highly annoyed with the logistical stuff about the hospital/intern/resident/chief resident situation

first of all... in real hospitals interns/attendings/residents DON'T sleep together.

2nd of all, how long have they all been interns? Like 3 years. um, no. doesn't happen.

3rd- Bailey, as I understood it, was a fellow, not a resident. Therefore, she would have NOT been up for chief resident

all of those logistical things annoy the piss out of me. and the whole thing with meredith where they worked on her forever.... that wouldn't have happened either. Just ridiculous. All of the acting has become stupid and contrived, IMO.

God, I'm glad I"m not the only one who thinks that this show is on its way down. It's getting more and more like "general hospital" and less like a prime time tv show.

Wow jennster...you took the words right out of my mouth. Sometimes I wish someone would just hold meredith down and feed her pizza and prozac. Her whole charachter has become PATHETIC! And please, tell me what was up with that whole deer scene!??! GIVE ME A BREAK!

Now as for Christina's charchter, I am still totally in love with it. I loved in the season finale last year when she said "Momma took my eyebrows" funniest line ever.

You should start watching Ugly Betty if you dont already. Its a really well-written show.....for now.

Lisa said...

I don't watch Grey's but now I'm sort of glad that I don't. THanks for letting me know I'm not missing something monumental.

Broadway Baby said...

I know what you mean! It's like Meredith has forgotten that she has the hottest boyfriend in the world and friends that love her! She hasn't had a happy moment for a while.

And I'm sorry, but what's up with Izzy out and out thinking it's okay to try to break up George's marriage with Callie. I don't think she really loves him. I think she just misses her best friend. But now he's going to leave his wife and be with Izzy and she's not going to be into him.

I already love Meredith's new half sister. She's a ray of bright light coming into the place.

I'm bummed that The Office and Grey's is on at the same time now! What's up with that...my two fave shows!

jennster said...

i'm glad y'all agree with me. except for stinky becky. LOL

Assertagirl said...

I think I'm the only female on the planet who has never watched an episode of this show.

Staci said...

I haven't given up on it yet...for one reason. Eric Dane. That's it. Enough said.

And my prediction is that Callie is already pregnant. This whole Izzy and George thing can not go off without a hitch so my prediction is that she'll end up knocked up.

mollymcmo said...

its like you took the words right out of my mouth, i super agree with you....cept i'm into the whole george/izzie love story! lol!!

my issue is everyone is whiney and woe is me and its almost like that soap passions, where nothing seems to work out for anyone.

now desperate housewives, that show kicks ass, love it! :)

We always watched GA because Trish wanted to. I never really gave much of a crap about the show, but it's only fair that if we watch some shows I like, I'll sit with her and watch some that she likes. With that said, GA is getting lamer and lamer IMO. I really don't know how much more of Merideth's whining I can take before I kick my TV screen.

Kim said...

I was totally disappointed in the season premiere. WTF's up with Izzy saving a freakin' deer? They can't come up with anything better than that? And Derek got a HAIRCUT of all things! LAME.

When does LOST start back up? Screw McDreamy, I need me some Sawyer......

Amy said...

I completely agree! I used to love this show, but it is going down the toilet, and fast. Meredith needs a nice tall glass of STFU, and I am almost starting to hate Izzy as much as I hate Meredith. But...I'll continue to watch and hold out hope that things will get better.

By the way, love your blog, never commented before, but you are totally awesome Jennster! :)

radioactive girl said...

I agree. You rock. Izzie used to be my very favorite, and now I am getting tired of her and her story with George. I see how George is loveable, but I don't see her loving him. This is about the point where my husband says "it's just a tv show" and rolls his eyes.
