Juuuuust a bit too weepy for me; good, but weepy. And the scene at the cemetary where the cast was laughing, it kind of felt that they were laughing at the writers and at us for swallowing all of the outlandish ideas.
I was hoping, for the briefest of moments, that the cast had punked us all and that it really wasn't George on the table. Imagine the WTF moment they could have had with George walk into the room and say, "What's going on?" That would have been cool!
In the end, I wish Izzy had gone instead of George. George was everyman, one of the few cast members not Hollywood gorgeous; he was normal, like the viewers. His presence shall be missed. Plus, enough whining Izzy; between you and your real-life counterpart, I've had enough.
I'll keep watching the show, mostly for Bailey and for the medical drama, but it has definitely passed it's high-water mark. It's like ER after Clooney and Edwards left, still good, but not nearly as good.
Finally, it'd be great if they brought Burke back (now that George has left); imagine the possiblities.
