This week's Grey's was really good too. I just love the writing. And for once, it's made me feel sympathetic toward Meredith. I don't hate her but for she bugs me sometimes. When she's whining, I just think - get yourself some therapy, stop being dark & twisty, and start enjoying that great career, McDreamy boyfriend and fabulous house you live in!
But you know, that's just me.


Yeah, we should all have it so bad! LOL. Haven't had time to read this whole thread, but does anyone watch like Monk or The Closer? Just wondering...I'm addicted!

I just came here to see if anybody watches Monk! I just started with seasons 1 and 2 and love the show.
I've seen several eps of The Closer and like it, too. the dvds are in my netflix queue.
also watching season 1 of Battlestar Galactica. keeping up with Lost, Heroes, and 24. need to catch up on Veronica Mars and Men In Trees.

Are you watching the new eps of Monk on Friday nights? This week's was hilarious.

I want the new season of The Closer now!!!

Mom watches Men in Trees, and she's got me hooked. The one with the baby carriage was hilarious!

It's a great show! (Monk, I mean.) He just cracks me up. Friday night he had to take the bus to Disher's uncle's farm! It was too funny! "I have to take a bus...a bus...to the farm...a farm. I have to take a bus to the farm...where there's dirt." Lots of funny stuff for Monk on a farm as I'm sure you can imagine! Do you ever watch Psych? It's on after Monk on Friday nights. Pretty funny too!

Is anyone else addicted to Reality TV? No, I'm not talking Survivor. I'm talking like, Flip This House or something like that. I love home improvement shows. I need to improve our home, that's fo sho.

Also, I've gotten really into CSI: Miami since they're running it on A&E. I can't believe they killed Liev on the CSI mothership this week or Delko on Miami. I love both of those guys! NO, really, I LOVE them!!!

haha, I can just hear him chant that about the bus to the farm. Monk is so funny and loveable!
I haven't watched Psych but the ads for it that I've seen look funny.

I've heard that CSI: Miami is filmed around my area and that the building they use for the external shots of some headquarters is near the Trader Joe's that I go to. (so random.)

Has anybody else been watching "Dirt"? Well, I give up on it. It has not lived up to it's promise by any means. I love Courteney Cox and she looks absolutely stunning, but there is no character development at all. The show is just grimy-feeling overall, and the characters are extremely unlikable and undeserving of any sympathy. I'm disappointed. It's off my TiVo. Josh Stewart and Grant Show are delicious, but not enough to make me watch any longer.

"Desperate Housewives" was insane this evening! Dixie Carter scared me.

"Grey's Anatomy" is as amazing as always ... but if they kill a certain someone (I don't want to spoil it if you guys haven't seen yet), I will be seriously upset. Uncool.

"Lost" was super for 2 weeks in a row now. Thankfully.

My "O.C." officially ends this week :x :cry: .

I wondered if anyone else finds themselves sucked into odd cable reality shows? My latest is King of Cars. It's silly and totally strange, but I can't seem to quit watching it...and I'm not sure I want to!

"30 Rock". It's hilarious. Tina Fey rocks.

Blurgh!

Shear Genius is my newest addiction. How I love Bravo. (Also, Sally Hershberger is fiiiiiiiiiine.)

On that same note, WorkOut with Jackie Warner is the most entertaining thing. I dunno how the hell I got myself hooked but I did.

All controversy aside, the show stills amazes me with how consistently good it can be. Don't get me wrong, it took awhile for me to warm of to most of the cast, and I still don't think I would like to know any of them in real life, but the last 2 or 3 eps have been great.

That was from January.
Boy, has this show turned into a crapfest.
I'm back to hating every single cast member again though I should be directing this angst toward the writers or Shonda, the creator.
Are we really supposed to think these idiots are doctors, or that we should embrace the pathetic characters' storylines over the fact that they're set in a medical facility?
It's all sheer crap.
Why would they allow the two closest friends (George and Izzie) sleep together and just totally screw Callie over? I've never liked Izzie. I was hoping when she had to use that Black & Decker drill on that guy that was in the ferry accident, that she would accidently let it slip into her own noggin but NO. She saves his life and is allowed off probation and back into doctordom. She belongs in bad porn, not a hospital.
And the love I had for George no longer exists.
Fuck you both.

And just when Meredith (Satan's whore) was finally going to drown her way off my TV, here comes her knight in shining armor diving blindly into the water to save her. I had a brief second of hope that they would both drown, but NOOOOO. They both live!
And just when we thought that Susan (Mare Winningham) was going to bring an iota of humanity to the hellish soul that is Meredith...BOOM, they kill her off!
Fuck you Mer and Der.
You both spell murder. Sounds good to me.
Please. Just. Die.

The only light to this show anymore is Sandra Oh and the lady who plays Miranda.

They even ruined Kate Walsh's character.
I just hope the spinoff will be decent....but unlike Meredith, I'm not holding my breath.

I have so many issues with Grey's. A few good things, but mostly bad.
So many things...I love Sandra Oh & Chandra Wilson(Dr Bailey). They rock. I can't wait for the day when Bailey is running that hospital - it'll be so fun. She practically does it now. She's the only sensible one who doesn't think her personal life is more important than her doctoring.

I even like McSteamy more these days - even though I don't think he's all that handsome - he's still funnier & shows more depth(after he saw Alex & Addison stumble out of the sex closet - I was sad for him) than Meredith. I hate her! Nothing makes her better - all she does is WHINE! I will miss Mare Winningham - Susan could have been a good influence on Meredith.

I love Callie. She's a cool, real character(like Cristina) and I hate George & Izzie for having sex.
Although I will say in Izzie's defense that what she did was no worse than what Burke & Cristina did - that pissed me off! Denny died, yes but they willfully deceived the whole staff & not even a probation period? Ridiculous!

I'll be watching tomorrow night, b/c Supernatural is on tonight & due to a VCR mishap, I missed it. Love that show.

Damn. This is the first season I've missed, except for the one when I was on the campaign. Think it's worth watching the whole thing on the internets? I know nothing at all about this season. Not a damn thing. Is it over yet?

And really, I thought nothing could top last season with Ozzie vs. Yul. That was as perfect a brains vs. brawn setup as you could ask for.
