What Sucks…Grey’s Anatomy
A group of people conduct medical experiments on a living human- while she’s awake, in a cold, dark basement room, located next to a morgue. A woman fucks a ghost.
No, these are not the latest story lines from the next Frank Miller graphic novel, nor are they excerpts from the upcoming “Hostel 18” they are the “A” and “B” story-lines from last week’s Grey’s Anatomy (I don’t DVR it, the most important person in my life does- leave me alone!)
Used to be this show was about doctors having sex- now, it’s about doctors having bad sex that brings about the realization of nightmares- I knew producers wanted to go in a different direction this year, but what they say? “Ahem, yeah- let’s make this show more like ‘Lost’ as directed by an angry Tim Burton!”
In the past 8 months Izzy alone has slept with George (destroying his marriage), Alex (on the rebound from a psycho girlfriend) and a ghost, (her dead, ex-boyfriend, who she killed at the end of season one).
They’ve had the least hot lesbian affair in the history of TV with Callie O’Malley and Dr. Hahn- so un-sexy, by the way that they had to fire Dr. Hahn as an actress. Dr. Sloan (McSteamy) has morphed from a misogynist who F’d his best friend’s wife, to an “all-around” good guy who helps kids cope with their father’s night tremors. By the way, McDreamy has forgiven Sloan for F-ing his wife and ruining his marriage, but can’t seem to get over the fact that Meredith has roommates. Also, we sit upon the precipice of Yang starting a relationship with a guy who has PTSD- just you watch. Ugh! I know too much about this shit!
Black is white, right is wrong and up is down at Seattle Grace. Hey folks- we don't watch Grey's Anatomy because we want bad sex- even if you put it to a “hip”, “indie”, soundtrack. I can have bad sex on my own to the latest “Shins” album, thank you very much. We watch it because we want to see hot, GOOD sex- and because our wives are into the show. (Honestly, if it were up to me- I'd be watching PBS!)
Grey’s Anatomy is on ABC- Thursday’s at 9!
