Merder are the reason i watch GA in the first place but i was watching some bits and pieces of season 1 & 2 yesterday.. UNBELIEVABLY different from season 3, its as if its not the same writer anymore. Seems like Derek's character in particular has been taken over/invaded by an alien. I can not relate to this selfish and unreasonable derek at all, no eye sparkle, no mcdreamy smile, SERIOUSLY!!! or has he always been like that? Meredith, that girl is really brave, if it was me that all those horrible things happened to, i would have been at the Psychiatric asylum by now. The only epi i can say is as good as those of 1 & 2 from season 3 is epi 319 ‘my favorite mistake'. The spin off on the other hand is another issue, why Shonda wants to do that i have no idea.I just hope they have some staff that read this stuff, becos here is what i want to say… Shonda pls for the sake of your fans bring back our old GA, all this drama is too much and pls dont break merder…..


That's interesting news about the girl in the bar being Mer's half-sister, "Lexi." Hmmmmmm. Maybe that's who Mer was glowering at---she certainly wouldn't be giving McDreamy the evil eye, would she? I can't believe that people are actually voting that they LIKED the spinoff, most of the forums and comments I've read are about 4to 1 against Private Practice. I personally do not intend to waste another night watching it. I like Tim Daly as an actor, but I thought the dialogue between him and Addi ("I'm going to kiss you with tongue..") was extremely juvenile and NOT funny. And the talking elevator lady??? WTF was that, is the show now trying to attract the under-13 crowd? I definitely see that Shonda & Co. were not able to sustain the excellent writing that was de rigeur in season 1 and 2. Season 3 is pathetic in comparison--got way too soapy and depressing and lost the good entertainment vibe. I'm in for the final 2 episodes, but I'll see if they salvage it enough to bring me back for season 4.


Kathy thank you for aree with me. Because i mss McDreamy´s McStubbke. I also just wanna say Don´t worry McDreamy won´t cheat he loves Meredith too much, he wouldn´t do to her what Addie did to him, he would´t dare,


I agree Debs. He would look sexy with that stubble. Gosh, when you think of that stubble with those eyes and that smile....Is there anything left to say but McDreamy????? I really hope he doesn't let us Mer/Der fans down in the 2 upcoming episodes...I mean be better not hit on that girl in the bar, ....I hope they don't break up! I'll worry about that until Thursday...I'm anxious but kinda sick to my stomach thinking about it because I'm afraid of what may happen!!!!!! After reading Shonda's post and her talking about things are going to get bumpy near the end of the season, I just feel she is talking about our Mer/Der. I don't think she realizes what she will do to us devoted Mer/Der fans!!!!! And then reading that stupid National Enquirer crap about all of the things that may happen still has me worried because AuseilloTV reports that half of that Natonal Inquirer stuff is true...so we naturally have a 50/50 chance that Der breaks up with her or not.....The waiting and not knowing is killing me...................


I`m just wondering fi anyone agree´s that they need to bring back McDreamy´s stubble. with the grey hair coming though i think it´d be SO sexy. after Meredith never found it impossable to kiss his face before. actually i think she quite liked it


I absolutley HATED the spinoff episode! I mean, Serioulsy! I like Addison, but she is much better at Seattle Grace; not Oceanside Wellness Group. And another thing, MER/DER CAN'T BREAK UP!!!


I like Kate Walsh... But that spin-off was so annoying...... I was not even interested in all those new people there with all their stories.....I recorded that episode and when watching I caught myself fast-forwarding those scenes.... And I'm definately not going to not watch "Private Practice".. I'm interested in Addison's story but not in the other people's stories....


BB, I'm so immune to this now that it doesn't even bother me anymore. It's just a few people trying to hold on to something that's dead. IW is doing the right thing by making amends, and he'll be back next season. I'm looking forward to Season 4!


Never, never mess up with a good thing. I didn't say it but a 100 year old product learned this the hard and we very expensive way. You could have been less gungho with the crossover, maybe 3to5 minutes before the end of the major show. Not dump the new bazooka, it was sacrilege punishable by excommunication. Please don't commit another huge mistake of messing up Bang wedding or Mer/Der relationship, this is really walking to the gallows! The audience have brains, you know. We are your customers, and when it comes to what we like, we are always right.


You posted this on the other thread, too. Both Ausiello at TVGuide and Kristen at Eonline have said tht the National Enquirer article tht you are referring to is complete bunk. Both TR and Isaiah's representatives have made public statements that they are returning for season 4. So, I don't think we need to pay too much attention to this. t least I am hoping not. The National Inquirer isn't a very reputable source of information.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Just because we can live without something, it doesn't mean we have to.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
