now is the time when I babble about TV

Last night, I caught up on some Grey's Anatomy and . . . yeah. Um. Show? What are you doing? I tried to explain part of one episode to Joe and it went something like this:

Me: So I was watching Grey's Anatomy?
Him: Why?
Me: Shut up. And guess who was on it?
Him: Who?
Me: Jeremy! From Sports Night!
Him: No way!
Me: Yeah. But it was not a very good storyline.
Him: Oh yeah?
Me: Yeah. His wife had a pimple and thought it was a Staph infection . . .
Him: Sure.
Me: And so she bought these antibiotics from the internet and the antibiotics killed off all the good bacteria in her body or something and Jeremy was her husband.
Him: OK.
Me: And so she could get back some of the good bacteria she had to have a poop transplant.
Him: A poop transplant?
Him: A POOP transplant?!
Him: Um.
Me: Ahahahahahahah poop.

And then I tried to explain what was going on with Izzy, because she's banging her dead fiance, which is totally rude because she's dating Alex now. Kat tells me that General Hospital did the exact same storyline and Izzy has a brain tumor. I assume this is for the writer-bashing Katherine Heigl did during the last Emmy season. I'm also guessing that the writers have no idea what to do with her character anymore. Remember when Izzy was likable? Before she went crazy and started killing her fiance and stealing hearts and sleeping with her gay BFF? Yeah, me neither.

ALSO. The interns tried to take out Vaughn's evil wife's appendix. I don't really have an opinion of her on Grey's because of Alias. I keep expecting her to go rogue, put on some black eyeliner, bang Sark, and start torturing the other doctors. That hasn't happened, though. YET. She's still recovering from almost dying so she can't get up to any shenanigans at the moment.

It turns out that's all I have to say about TV right now. Carry on.

I'm sorry, Jennie!, but Grey's Anatomy sucks so much ass that there's practically no ass left for the sucking. And that's a lot of ass. Also, a lot of sucking.

Such is my hatred for the televised abortion that is....Grey's Anatomy. Thank you.

Jennie! said...

See, I know it sucks ass and yet I can't stop watching it. It's a sickness.

kat! said...

remember when grey's used to be good like izzy? and also, remember the days before they canceled pushing daisies? television sucks.

You can call me, 'Sir' said...

When did they cancel Pushing Daisies? Why am I always the last to find out about these things?

mysterygirl! said...

Yeah, the first season of Grey's rocked. Too bad it's been pretty much a suckfest the last couple of years.

Can you explain how a poop transplant works? Or is it better that I not know?

(Oh, and I agree with Kat-- that TOTALLY happened on General Hospital, I believe to Nikolas Cassadine.)
