THANK YOU CLAIRE!
Well said, ditto to all your points made.
As just one of the thousands that were insulted by the quality of the writing last season, I have all but given up on Shonda and her team of flash in the pan dramatists. Too bad too - some amazing acting talent and ensemble cast chemistry. I'm not against new characters if Shonda et all writers can get over themselves and try to pull this debacle out of
to be cancelled and not so brilliant TV archives.

Seriously, who wrote this peice? I did not see a source below it to find out who wrote this, but WHAT A SPIN job. Last season was not only largely disliked by fans, but by critics as well. As far as the Emmy's, most do not agree with voters choices as they think thye are not in touch with what is strong in any given season, so I'm not even going to try to tell you why the Emmy nods this year (as always) don't hold much weight as far as fans and critics are concerned.

The show failed last year, THOUSANDS of fans have been writing everywhere to voice this as well as articles and net news by critics have been voiced. Evey major couple, story and character was beaten down to the lowest they could go to. Meredith (lead character on the show) was brought through a "shark jumping" three parter only to have the WRITERS let her learn nothing from it. Her break up with Derek was disastrous. Don't blame fans for caring. Even Ellen Pompeo voiced herself to NZ TV Guide she thought the three parter was more to take attention off the back stage fighting than for anything legit. The Meredith and Derek characters are the most popular couple on the show, and the writers reduced them to a couplel on a really bad episode of Saved by the Bell. If they are helded by rubber bands, blame the WRITERS. Plain lazy writing for two actors who have built in chemistry and a HUGE fanbase. All they needed was strong writing and guess what? None of that was to be found. Fans have every right to be angry. Shonda & Co. failed us plain and simple. Purely bad writing for the sake of ratings, nothing more.

There's a REASON the writers were not nominated for Emmy's this year. Show creator Shonda Rhimes has made every excuse possible for the poorly written season (including dismissing the die hard fans) Not smart Shonda, even LOST writers and creators acknowledged mistakes in their second season and in season three both fans and critics noted the great changes to the show, but not Shonda. The blame game seems to be her call and she admits nothing. Shame. If you can't see where you failed and take at least some of the blame, you cannot look to fans for wanting to bail if we see the new season does not get any better.

You can blame the characters, you can blame the fans, you can blame the critics, spin off show, departures of lead characters or the weather conditions in your state, but in the end, the blame is solely on Rhimes & Crew, and in the end, if nothing changes, it will be HER to blame when the fans exit. But please DO NOT "spin" your love for this show in your articles. We love it too, but we got dumbed down last season and it won't happen again this seaon I promise you. There's too much really great competition out there. Cheat the fans again, and we'll look elsewhere.
