Grey's Anatomy

Recommended Posts

Botkinetti

I have watched Greys since the first episode. Used to love it and look forward to watching it. Haven't  loved it for years but I do still watch it. I sometimes wonder why I have such a grim determination to see it through to the end but then every once in a while there is an episode that I really enjoy and I get my hopes up that it will return to the show I used to love. Those hopes are dashed very quickly.

Loved Grey's was my favorite programme  ever up till Cristina left, still watch it and was gutted when Callie left as well. We have only just got the new season on tv and I am ever hopeful that it will recapture what made it so special in seasons 1-11!

Did the 300th episode make anyone else cry? Or just me? It was so good! Best episode in awhile and I loved every. single. second.

I got a bit misty at the end of the episode.  

The fire nonsense has got to end.

Bailey made a really good point about him getting bored.

@clueliss @Hufflepuffpride Yep, I cried too. Not as much when Meredith won the award but rather when Zola and Maggie cried together. I was annoyed by Maggie when she first entered the show, but I like how human and caring and gentle she is compared to the Meredith of the earlier seasons, or Ellis Grey herself. Zola and Maggie were adorable together. I especially liked how excited they were for Mer. I loved Jackson's speech, it was fantastic. 

I think it's safe to say I loved every second on this episode.

I loved the episode too although It made me miss George , Cristina and Izzy. I wondered if I would enjoy all the episodes more if they were still on it.

I wouldn't. I couldn't stand Izzie, George fell on my last nerve (though his ending was really, really sad), and Cristina annoyed me because of her sham of a marriage to Owen. They were never on the same page, they had nothing in common. 

I know this is merely a TV show, the characters are all fiction, but still, Meredith is my heroine. Everything that was said about her is true. She takes loss, and turns it into drive. And that, as a philosophy or a principle, is a great lesson to learn in life. Meredith always gets back on her horse and rides on.

I loved Cristina, I did not necessarily love her with Owen.

Although, at the beginning it was amazing. Cristina really saved Owen. I think Owen was what she needed after Burke. Ugh Burke, he was not good for her at all.

Anybody else watch last nights episode ? I thought it was well done and I had tears in my eyes a few times. Jo has never been my favourite character but I thought the writing and acting was understated and affecting.

@Botkinetti I just streamed it. I'm also not a Jo fan, but yeah, it was a good episode.

I thought it was really well done, @Botkinetti. I also liked the title, which is the number of the national domestic violence hotline. I saw a clip of Camilla Luddington(Jo) promoting the hotline for people in need in a clip on facebook (I think it was on ABC's FB page) and thought that was a great thing to do. 

I am very pleased with this season. It's getting better by the minute and the acting is continuously excellent. Some people criticize Shonda for making this season too political by addressing social and cultural issues, but given there are still so many sexist, conservative and patriarchal TV shows on air, I am all for making a step into the right direction. 

I'm excited to see how the whole Jo/Alex/abusive ex/fiancé drama is going to play out. There's quite some gaslighting happening and it'll be interesting to see if Jo manages to come out of it safe and sane. 

A great deal of people really hate the Jackson/Maggie thing. I can't say I care too much at this point, but I don't think it's the worst couple ever. People's dislike goes so far that they call Maggie "ugly and disgusting", and in doing so insulting Kelly McCreary. It boggles the mind how people just can't keep RL and fiction apart or state an opinion without being racist, misogynist pricks. 

I think Maggie is a really sweet, quirky, caring, fun, and ingenuous character and if they were real, I see no reason why they shouldn't be together. Because her biological father, whom she hadn't known for most of her life, married his mother when both "children" were well in their 30s? Seriously? That is not incest, it's just a weird coincidence. Not buying the incest argument. People are digging Jackson and April so much but IMHO it's been established well enough that they have very different ideas of life and quite the diverging personalities. Maggie and Jackson, OTOH, have very subtle chemistry on the basis of sharing the same humor, passions, and just getting along without having entire world views clash. 

On that note, I think April will end up with Hunt. I've interpreted the mutual breathing bag moment as foreshadowing of what is to come between those two. The same things I see in Jackson and Maggie I see in Owen and April. They would make a great couple simply on the basis of being passionate about the same things, sharing the same values, having similar concepts of life, love, faithfulness, and marriage, and both are really into trauma and being 'hardcore'. 

I get that most people find April and Jackson's love story endearing. He's her first love and lover and she's his polar opposite and that makes it seem romantic. In reality, though, those two have the potential to drive each other up a wall, and funnily enough, this is what happened in the show, too. If people just can't work out a way to deal with each other's differing values and ideas of life, they gotta admit it's better to separate and find someone with whom a harmonious relationship is possible. That is exactly what happened on screen and I do like that evolvement. 

Last but not least, the whole nerdy IT-doctor-computer-hacking thing reminded me of NCIS and I found it completely over the top, but then again, what isn't in the world of Grey's? Glad to have powerful Bailey back.

@Pretzel I agree with all your points. I too don’t understand the hate about Jackson and Maggie. There have been so many worse couples.

Camilla Luddington had a clip that ran at the end of the episode. I watch Grey’s on regular tv. I assume it was the same clip.
