Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Season Premiere: The Writer's Take > Comments Page 2
I wanted flashbacks more than anything.
Flashbacks of George wouldn't have been ordinary. It would have made the episode memorable and touching. It would have given it some heart.
George is my favorite and I wanted to see him one last time.
We all did.
Who cares about cheesy? I love George, and I miss. So if remembering him and showing tons of flashbacks was cheesy, I could have gone for the cheesiest episode in the world. Ordinary and powerful grief is just perfect when you say goodbye to such a beloved character.
It definitely beats unemotional, weird and dysfunctional any day.
I was a little bit disappointed. The idea of constructing the episodes around 'five stages of grief' was initially good but it wasn't carried out very well. Especially at the end when these stages actually referred to the job situation. I guess the writers wanted us to focus on current topics instead of being left with a feeling that it won't be the same without George. But even though I was not such a great fun of George as many other people, I think he deserved a bit more attention. I agree that two hours of crying and remembering George wouldn't make a great episode but avoiding the topic and trying to fit too many plots into two hours of screen time was not a great idea either.
hey wyomom! I don't really agree with you.. I think the flashback thing you suggested would've made the show cheesy and ordinary. It's been done so many times. I really think they showed us a very realistic take on George's death. To be honest, a two-hour episode with people crying and talking about George all the time would've made me stop watching.
About Christina...I think there are two main reasons she became sex driven during that month:
1) You try being in love with someone who's totally in love with you too and not having sex with that person. You'd become obsessed too.
2) There's a huge event she wants to avoid thinking about here - George, of course - and the next big thing on her mind is the fact that she's not having sex with Owen. Of course, it's so much easier to worry and obsess about that than to think about George's death, so that's what she does.
Just my opinion... =)
I do get her take on the episodes, but i am still at loss for words on these two first episodes....don't you think they should've given us some flashbacks of george's greatest moments as they said goodbye to him or something?. I feel like they're is no closure. I am very confused on this episode...honestly when was was christina all about sex...she went without it for a while after burke, now she's sex drived?! hmmm I guess i'm missing something. anyone agree??
She is really awesome and the premiere was awesome too!
Krista is awesome. I love her blogs.
Loved the episodes, loved her intakes.
