I’m loving how GREY’S ANATOMY doesn’t take the easy way out. If this were any other medical show, Izzie would already be back at the hospital, Dr. Burke would be performing surgery flawlessly and Meredith would have already chosen between McDreamy and McVet. But thankfully, this is Seattle Grace, and problems aren’t solved over the course of an hour episode.
Last night’s episode had a little bit of everything for GREY’S fans across the board. We had Meredith ‘dating’ (with the inevitable dream sequence featuring McVet and McDreamy). Izzie returning to the hospital (almost!). And an adorable Abigail Breslin, fresh off her fantastic summer movie LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (watch your back Dakota Fanning!). We also had what’s become a standard heart-breaking moment, as Addison Sheperd has now reversed roles with Meredith to become the McEmotionalMess. How much am I loving Addy? Who would have thought ‘the other woman’ would have become my favourite resident of Seattle Grace?
Dunder Mifflin is so much fun that it almost makes me wish I worked in an actual office. Okay, perhaps that’s a bit of a stretch, but who wouldn’t love Movie Monday and Call of Duty Tournaments? Seriously folks, when 8:30PM on Thursday comes around, I’ve got ‘Sophie’s Choice’ on my hand. Flip from UGLY BETTY (which I’m loving) or PVR THE OFFICE and watch it after GREY’S ANATOMY. This week, I stuck with UGLY BETTY, since I was loving it, and have held off watching THE OFFICE until 10PM.
Why am I loving UGLY BETTY? Two words, America Ferrera. She glows and is not surprisingly, the most radiant star to hit the small screen (or 42″ widescreen as the case may be) since Kristin Bell showed up in Neptune [VERONICA MARS]. Admittedly, nothing about the show is the least bit surprising, and the entire ‘mystery plot’ is falling slightly flat, but aside from that, the show is a joy to watch. I’m loving the vibrant colours, delectable dialogue and Vanessa L. Williams portayal of evil fashion editor Wilhemina. I can’t recall such an entertaining TV villian since Amanda moved into MELROSE PLACE.
