FOR ALL YOU MER BASHERS- TRY AND DEFEND DER'S ACTIONS AS THE GOOD GUY!First I love DER and I really love MER too (loved her on morphine) but please MER has told him time and time again that she has ABANDOMENT issues. (and rightly so-which he is aware of ALL the reasons!) Let's count how many times HE has abandoned her. (the ones that I remember) 1. Picked ex-wife over her when she sticks her neck out first and tells him she loves him and "pick me, choose me" so cute! Doesn't even go to the bar to explain-just leaves her there drinking all night! MER forgives him!2. She decides to be "friends with him & share the dog" so that she can hang on to the relationship and has to be friends with ADDI too. Meets someone- He is so jealous that he implies she is a whore and ends the friendship. MER forgives him.3. Tells her "SHE has a choice to make because when he had a choice to make I chose wrong-I LOVE YOU"- TAKE ALL THE TIME YOU NEED! Then HE decides for HER that Finn is the better guy and ends the relationship again.4. She tells him she dumped FINN AKA " Well I choose you Derek-how about them apples" HE ignores herâ€¦.. and sorry I need some timeâ€¦.. not really sure what I want anymore. She is gracious about it, take the time that you need with a smile.5. As she is recovering from almost DYING/losing her MOTHER, starts to show signs of more confidence, intimacy and communication (even though she was a little smart ass about it)- DER -"I don't know if I can do this any more" "Breathe for you anymore" MER is devastated but comes back and tells DER that the accident has changed her-please stay!6. Teases her with a weekend away (which I was really wanting to see) (which he could of used to reel her back in) Then he gives her that speech about he loves her, wants to marry her, have kids with her and "I KNOW YOU ARE NOT READY" BUT if someone else comes along soon â€"you might just be out of luck! GIVE ME WHAT I WANT OR I'LL DUMP YOU? Not the most romantic ending to "an I love you speech for your soul mate!" I think MER'S character is growing and DER'S hasn't. (Not that MER'S character doesn't still have some growing to do) Maybe that is the point of Rose to force DER to Grow too and realize there is only MER for him even if he has to WAIT!Why doesn't DER go to counseling with FINN/Christiana/IZZIE and try â€¦."SHUT UP MER" " I LOVE YOU" and I am not going anywhere no matter what crazy stupid thing you say and give her a MCDREAMY KISS that makes her speechless! We know he has that talent! I think that he is going to have to prove to MER (and that is going to take TIME) that he is not going anywhere no matter how "dark and twisty " she is at times! Someone needs to remind DER about the VOW FOR BETTER OR WORSE since he is so set on getting married AGAIN! DER has had a bad habit of running/pulling away when the going gets rough and not just with his relationship with MER.Something for you MER BASHERS to think about!
Hayden: Wow , I feel much more taller and invincible Milo: I don't like being ur superman its giving me back aches.
Congrats and good for you. I guess it's really easy for some fans to take the roll of apathetic bystander. To tell you, if you don't like what you are watching, don't watch. Well, we've all seen where the apathy gets us all in life. You show that you DO CARE about this show from the heartfelt petition you wrote and the fact that you care this much shows what a fan you are. EW weekly did a mid season report and where the shows stood overall in ratings a cople of weeks ago. Grey's was 5th in ratings based on the whole season so far. Last year at this time, it was first. Fans and critics have been lukewarm at best on this season. Sure, we can all take the stand of "if you don't like it , leave.." and then watch as this once beautiful show becomes one of those crap night time teenage dramas (and folks, it's heading there) So while I don't agree with the whole statement (especially on Meredith, she is not hated, it's just that many have chosen NOT to know the character and just jump on the bashing Mer bandwagon..I do not) I still wholeheartedly support your statement, your passion, the fact that you care, and your petition. I gladly signed and I thank you. Wish more fans were like you-so the show would finally improve in it's lacking quality. You did a nice job..I'm glad you care enough to not just "stop watching" I only hope that Shonda Rhimes can drop the ego and listen to the fans who put the show on the map. There's always a first time for everything after all....
Well if Meredith doesn't want McDreamy, she can send him over HERE, where I would be happy to marry him/have his kids/have him build a house for us/grow old together/etc etc etc. Even though it's a TV show, you would think any "normal" woman would realize what a hell of a man Derek is and would grab onto him and not let go,and not give him a reason to go!
I totally and completely agree with the petition and signed it the day it was put online. Because although the show is still amazing, it's not what it was in seasons 1&2. It's just not. 4.11 didn't make me cry. At all. I was...bored. =/ Was the Bailey and her son storyline heartbreaking? Absolutely. Was the Mer/Der break-up hard to watch? Definitely. But none of the sad, depressing storylines got to me like others have in seasons 1&2. They've just been sort of....flat lining lately. Also, everyone needs to stop putting all the blame on Meredith or all the blame on Derek. Because they both screwed up a few times. They are both at fault! They've both hurt each other and it's not right to only blame one of them for their problems. Derek's dating again. It's not like he just walked out on Mer and decided to flirt with a nurse. It's not like that. They both did things and said things and made their relationship the mess that it is. It took both of them to screw up the relationship and if you want to place blame, fair enough. But it's only fair to place equal blame. Rose bugs the hell out of me, by the way. I don't think that it's even because I love Mer/Der as much as I do because Rose...isn't really a threat to Meredith and Derek. I mean, the only reason Derek's even interested in her is because she wants all the things Meredith isn't ready for. Derek likes the idea of Rose. He likes that things with her seem so easy and uncomplicated unlike with Meredith. But, to me, if being with someone is that easy and simple...then it's not worth it. The chase is....well, there is none. It's...boring. That's what Derek and Rose would be...boring. And does she always have to be so happy? No one smiles that much. No ones that happy all...the...time. What about the engagement ring? Who wears their engagement ring around their neck a year after the engagement is over? It's just weird. I'm pretty sure I would hate Rose even if she had nothing to do with Derek...It's just her character....Derek really has nothing to do with it. Because Lexie flirted with Derek in a bar and I wanted to kill her then but now....she's pretty awesome. Chyler Leigh (Lexi) got death threats all over the internet last year when she hit on Derek in a bar. Lauren Stamile (Rose) makes out with Derek. She should definitely hire some body gaurds.
hey people!!i made a myspace of dan and serena aka penn and blake!!come cheack it out!!!!!add and promote!! YAY!!www.myspace.com/dan_serena
I think the petition is a good idea if it works or not we have to speak up. The show has gotten way off base. I respect what Katie and Alicia are trying to do. Instead of just sitting back and complaining they are trying to do something constuctive. Right now it's considered the show with the worst writers block. The ratings have been going down pretty steady. If something doesn't happen in season 5 I feel like we might as well say goodbye to our favorite show. Attacking each other with words isn't doing anybody any good. Even some of the fun we use to have on sites like this is slowly disappearing. I think that is really sad.
I think that there are some serious problems with the show, and it goes beyond anything specific. I think Katherine Heigl said it best when she admitted Gizzie was a ratings ploy. Well, most ratings ploys don't garner LOWER ratings than the show previous. I understand that Grey's is in its fourth season, but CSI which is currently in its EIGHTH season doesn't pull things like that and they are currently beating Grey's in the overall ratings. Don't try to shock me all the time. If I wanted to be shocked and wanted my sensibilities challenged I would watch Criminal Minds (good show by the way).
I think we place WAY to much emphasis on what celebrities say. Did we forget they are human too, and allowed to make their own decisions? No one would like someone judging EVERY word you say and move you make the way we do with celebrities...like Katherine. Back off people. Everyone is way too judgmental. Speak on experience, not judgment.
When will the petition be sent to ABC / Shonda ? How many signatures before sending it to Shonda? I heard the Ausiello's rerport today with some new spoilers about the show. Seems as if they were writing the next episode when the strike occurred. Cristina will start a relationship with JJ and Cristina will help Mer get over her split with Derek. Seems the split will last a while or until the conclusion of the Rose arc. Lets hope it ends SOON! We need to get rid of Rose and get Mer/Der back together!
