ARVIN SLOANE IN DA HOUSE

ABC, YOU’VE BEEN SERVED
Even though some might say we’re equally culpable for completely ignoring the genius that is BOSTON LEGAL over the course these past four seasons. This TV Addict would like to use this opportunity to shift the blame to the real guilty party, ABC. I mean it’s almost as if creator genius hyphenate David E.

Amidst all the controversy surrounding Izzie’s foray into ghost whispering and what from here on in shall be referred to as Hahn-Gate, is the far more worrisome fact that this once beloved hospital drama has become what television should never be — a chore to watch. The residents juvenile bickering over the prized solo surgery might have been exciting had we not already spent last season witnessing them fight over the shiny sparkle pager. McSteamy setting his sights on a young intern, boy that sure sounds original. And don’t even get us started on Dr. Sheppard. Are we the only TV Addicts who’ve noticed that poor Patrick Dempsey hasn’t had a story-line of his own all season.
