I started this post yesterday but my laptop shut off so I'm starting over. I have a couple more entries to write, but kept wanting to put this rant on before I forget. And yes, I am under the influence of drugs. More on that later.
So, last week was the premiere of Grey's Anatomy. Now, this is one of only three shows I watch on TV regularly, so I was pretty excited. I have vascillated between liking this show and thinking it's totally ridiculous and the latter was true of the premiere. For one thing, I don't really care anymore what happens with MerDer and Meredith is so committment-phobic that she deserves to be an old maid who lives to a ripe old age and then dies and gets eaten by her 27 cats. And that icicle that stabbed Yang? PLEASE! Seattle Grace Hospital is supposed to be in SEATTLE! And I have lived here since 1985 and not even during the "Arctic Blast" have I seen an icicle that big on any structure in the Seattle area. In fact, the only icicles you might find during the coldest of days in Seattle might be hanging from the wheel wells on your car. But one big enough to stab you? HAHA! So ridiculous. While being annoyed by that stupidity, I was also totally peeved about the huge M*A*S*H* ripoff! Now, I'm not so young that I don't remember that show and watching it faithfully (it helped that my mom was totally addicted). So, when this Captain Hunt or whatever his name was came waltzing in to the Grey's set, having performed a tracheotomy with a ballpoint pen out in the field, I thought - NOT original. Radar did that in the field in South Korea circa 1972. Please, can't they come up with something original and believable? I'm waiting to see if tonight's episode is anything of either. This one might get scratched off my list. Guess I'll have to start watching "John and Kate Plus 8" or something more believable.
