Grey's Anatomy on ABC - Page 26

post #751 of 961
Is Denny the friendly ghost real or is Izzie developing schizophrenia?
Oh well as long as they have scenes with Melissa George in various stage of undress I will watch for the rest of the season.

I wish that was something that would happen permanently. It must have been easy for ABC to forget, as they don't show the network credits or a voice over at the end of their comedy series. I see after "Samantha Who" the credits are a different font than the network and the production company cards have their own sound effects.

A few years back another network also used to run regular credits on their comedies as well.

Hey, I notice this kind of thing too.

Well if this were any show other than "G.A," it would clearly be a mental health issue ... but ....

I think it's part of the exit storyline that will take Heigl out of the show. Though, if you ask me, it's a little late. Don't think her star is rising like it once was. She's about to pull a David Caruso.

Still, I think the tattling by the now-departed Hahn will come back around about the same time Izzy goes nuts and they'll have no choice but to let her go.

Then, in three years when the movie roles stop coming, she'll turn up on Private Practice as an underwear model.

since it is GA, it's not mental illness, just another loveable quirk.

All I can say is I have about one more episode left of Denny. After that, I am gone. I used to like Izzie's character and then they totally ruined her with the entire Denny storyline. Then they finally get things away from that and bam, they bring him back again.

Personally, I think she was right, they did give her nothing deserving of an emmy last year (unless they are going to truly go up against soaps in the daytime Emmy's), though saying it in public is totally stupid.

Am I the only one thinking that Izzy is going to die soon?

Denny keeps saying, "Izzy, I'm here for you."

Is he here to help her transition from the living to the dead?

Makes sense to me, probably why Melissa George has showed up, to take over the "hot blonde" role vacated by Izzy.

I, too, am sick of the dead Denny/Izzy storyline. I've generally liked the show over the years, but this is trying my patience. It's ridiculous, and worse, boring.

I think they got their wires crossed with "Supernatural's" ( ... or Star Trek:TOS )

Really, now we know where Sam and Dean's dad has been since he left.

I think the best thing for this show would be for ABC to cancel Private Practice. Clearly Ms Rhimes is incapable of running two shows at once. I am still watching because I keep hoping for a return to the quality of years past, but this is really dreadful right now.
post #764 of 961
This phrase is way overused, but applicable here....

2 "jump the shark" moments in one show...SWEET!

I am getting to the point that I have better use of my time than to watch this show. It better get better soon, these storylines suck.

Same thing happened to Joss Whedon except it took him 3 projects for his first two to suffer for it. Firefly got the most of his attention and Angel and Buffy less so.
post #766 of 961
The whole ghost Denny storyline is getting on my nerves. My wife and I are nearing the end of the line with Grey's I think. Sad, given that it's one of the few shows we both enjoyed watching at one point.
post #767 of 961
Well, I finally figured out exactly how Izzy is going to die.

Ghost AIDS.

That slut gets around more than Paris Hilton.

"Denny! I can't believe I killed you twice!" (Cocodile tears spew like Niagra...for the millionth time.)

Besides the Izzy/Denny ******** that is going on in the show, that last episode was season 1 caliber. They portrayed the characters more as doctors and LESS like hormone crazy sex-addicts that do nothing but talk about their relationships all day. Of course, the relationship storyline is there but it takes a backseat to the medicine...and I really think this is what the show needs. They have gone so overboard on the drama with the relationships, that you almost forget these people are in education to become surgeons. I think they need to highlight this transformation more and really show just how green the original crew were in the beginning of their career and how far they have come to get to this point. I thought it was a great episode and really hope they continue along this path.

I'm watching the episode right now and while I agree with in regards to the medicine part, the Denny storyline is tiring. Grey's has been ok this season up until this episode. Uhhh!

I'm right there with you. I still watch this show only b/c my wife still insists on watching it, and I turned to her several times during the last episode, and said that if they hadn't jumped the shark yet, the intern story line together with the Denny storyline surely qualified. I don't know, but I now find so many of the current shows, like Grey's and Heroes, to be virtually unwatchable. Oh well.
post #772 of 961
yeah stop the Denny stuff right now! ironically he's the actor of supernatural (father of the brothers), now playing a ghost... mmm

If they show more Denny next episode I'm changing the channel! that's it!
post #773 of 961
I haven't counted the episodes because I am trying really hard to forget them, but apparently Denny is on 5 episodes this year.

so we got at least two more... holy shiat

I wish Denny would just die already. Oh wait...
post #776 of 961
X whatever on jumpin' the shark. GA used to be one of only a few shows I actually sat through with my wife. I walk out now as soon as I see Denny and go watch The Office and 30 Rock in another room. My wifes says, "Just leave if you're gonna make fun of it." I reply, "Let me know when Mulder and Scully show up and I'll sit back down to watch it with you."

And I thought the show's title was Grey's Anatomy as in mostly about Grey. Now it's just a rehashed version of ER with different characters and a small X-Files plot.

I'm done.
post #777 of 961
Well, based on the lack of commotion in this thread after this week's episode (as opposed to last week's), maybe I wasn't alone in telling my wife last night that I would not watch GA with her. I am [hopefully] done as well.
post #778 of 961
I've been very confused by the Denny angle but I haven't given up on the show yet. I'll cast judgement after I figure out where the hell they're going with it. However, I will say that all the response I've heard from people who watch this show, here and elsewhere, has been 100% negative towards that storyline. I'm not ready to say this is the be all end all shark-jumping moment of the show, but it looks like it was most certainly a poor decision. I don't know any fans of the show who are actually enjoying it.
post #779 of 961
Worst episode ever!
post #780 of 961
So I changed the channel, watch the office and some 30 rock, changed back, Ok, Izzie walks to Alex, and I yelled "finally! she's over it!" but then she looks away to see Denny.. changed channel again.. bye!

And our beloved BSG star plays a Cylon-like character here with no emotions, kind of TSCC caliber..
