Yang's Anatomy

I really like the television show Grey's Anatomy. It is one of my favorite shows. The characters are great. I love the dialogue. It is not too serious of a show. The acting is decent. And I admit (let the jokes fly) I think Patrick Dempsey deserves the title Dr. McDreamy. But I was really annoyed with Sunday nights post SuperBowl show.

Seriously, the cliffhanger, the "To be continued"ending, has Meredith Grey, the TITLE character, left holding a bomb in some guy's chest. Leaving us, the viewers, possibly thinking, "Ooohhh. She may die. I must watch next week."

The TITLE character is not going to die. She is Grey. THEE Grey in Grey's Anatomy. If she dies are they going to change the show to Yang's Anatomy?

Yang is the name of one of the other main characters in the show.

I don't think so. Think of all the advertisers who would pull out. No pun intended.

I do agree about that cliff hanger. But there was plenty more to make me eager to tune in next week, especially Bailey's husband!

While watching it last night, the hubbs said "They're not going to finish it tonight." I was all "Yes, they will. The 2 episode thing is so 5 years ago." Sure enough. They did it.

And, of course, they aren't going to kill Grey. But, maybe she and McDreamy will get back together!

I really like the show too. ER still holds a special place in my heart but I just started watching the season this year and I have no idea what the hell is going on between Grey and McDreamy.

Twixie said...

yeah I know nothing will happen to Meredith.... but definitely want to see what happens with Bailey's husband and if she has the baby in time.

Dancewriter said...

I agree with you completely! The main things that I have enjoyed about this show have been the characters and their interactions. I feel like they went for the lowest common denominator by doing something as sensational as "code black" and then on top of that they did a "to be continued." Argh. We're leaving for India for three weeks and will have to hope that the TIVO works. *sigh*

Nothing I hate more than gratuitous cliffhangers. I'll tune in next week, but not because I think Meredith is going to kick the bucket - I just want to see what happens with Izzy and Alex after their romp in the closet!

TBG said...

Where do you come up with this stuff!

Ha Yang's anatomy!

I so agree I love Greys anatomy and Dr McDreamy but of course nothing is going to happen to Merideth!

And now I have to wait a whole week to know everything is going to be fine and watch the rest of the damn episode!

jd said...

That's my favorite show, Bill! Good choice of tv. I agree the cliffhanger was a dumb idea, and McDreamy is handsome. Great characters!

Christine said...

Yup. Treating us like we're morons.

So, I let my brain go to the side story: will Dr. McDreamy be forced to imagine life without Gray, and dump Mrs. McDreamy?

Will you watch it? Then they did what they intented!

That's what I used to love about Star Trek. They always took a couple red-shirts down to the planet with them so they'd have someone to wack, 'cause you knew it wasn't going to be Kirk. I don't even think they could kill the evil Kirk from the alternate universe...

Cat said...

Mmmm... hmm? Sorry, what was that? I never made it past Dr. McDreamy...

kalki said...

Hee, Yang's Anatomy! Awesome.

I thought the same thing, actually, about Meredith. I mean, when the paramedic girl was the one at risk, it was actually fairly suspenseful b/c there was a chance they'd kill her off since she's not a regular on the show. But Grey? Puh-lease.

I didn't watch the show from the beginning...but I did catch this episode...and having not been invested in the characters...I confess that I didn't care about the people holding the bomb...sad I know...but Yang's anatomy wouldn't have bothered me :)

It was decent...I should have watched it from the beginning...thank god for Season 1 DVD's :)

OMG I was thinking the SAME THING today! WTF kind of cliffhanger is that?? We KNOW she's not going to die!

this show stinks

t_cole said...

i love this show too. have not missed an episode - i take my addictions very seriously.
Patrick dempsey is absolutely yummy!!!!
but i had the same thoughts as you and felt like they prostituted the show to take advantage of the post-superbowl time slot. i mean really, how many episodes of this series have opened with three gorgeous babes in a steamy shower...

LizzieDaisy said...

I don't know anything about that show, but if there is a McDreamy on it, perhaps it's worth a looksee. :)

Chixulub said...

I appreciate the reminder of why I don't watch TV except for football games. I'd get sucked in, especially since Dr. Grey looks good enough to eat, and then I'd be angry that my time was wasted for an obvious red herring like that.

Susie said...

I love that we watch the same shows. I know. It was lame but still RIVETING! God McDreamy better save Bailey's husband! and I heart George! And I wish Meredith and Izzie would stop crying.

Max's Favorite Uncle said...

T_Cole said something about three gorgeous babes, who are they? I only saw two good looking babes in that shower. Yang is disgusting looking,in my opinion. I like the show and watch it quite frequently and it is about time Izzie became a do'er.

LotionBarBunny said...

I don't for one minute think she is going to die...but from the look on McDreamy's face, I think that is when he realized that he wants to be with Meredith not "Mrs. I cheated on McDreamy."

I love the show too. I have to say though - I'll watch it next week even without the cliffhanger, but it was a good opportunity to grab new and different viewers, as others have mentioned, so they clearly decided to take full opportunity. I did miss the usual theme-based musings that tie the show together at both ends, though.

Kel said...

yeah duh we know they aren't going to kill off Meredith, the cliffhanger was when Dr. Dreamy looked up as he heard thet "Meredith is the 'girl with the bomb' . . . "

Plus they have that whole thing going on with Bailey's husband and she kick ass!
