Looking past the anatomys in Greys Anatomy


(used this old pics cos i couldnt imagine using one without dr. burke)

i'm such a fan of greys anatomy, i'm like addicted to it and enthralled with all the drama that takes place in seattle grace hospital. i've got the dvds that i just keep watching over and over again. , since we are still behind in Nigeria, like in the 3rd season(how screwed is that)and i just cant imagine myself waiting to watch what is already being aired.
i kind of relate with meredith, her fear of commitment, her struggles and the whole dark and gloomy existence...well to an extent, i'm not as screwed up as she is(i hope)

But it's sort of not all about the McSteamys and the McDreamys(who by the way are absolutely hot, steamy and dreamy)... my interest goes deeper than that, cos every episode gives me food for thought on certain issues room for reasonable thinking way past the hormones the hotties rise in our bodies. heres a voice over of meredith..

"the early bird catches the worm; a stitch in time saves nine. He who hesistates is lost. We can't pretend we havent been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard our granparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to 'seize the day'. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep todays possibilities under tomorrows rug untill we can't anymore, untill we finally undersstand for ourselves like Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistakes beats the hell out of never trying"


i keep reflecting on that and somehow by doing that i've been able to take the necessary steps to start doing things i always had doubts about cos like meredith says" knowing is better than wondering" and "we have to make our own mistakes." i've realized that i just can't keep hiding in this cosy cocoon i created for myself cos that way i never get to take risk and so i just remain stuck at the place where i am forever. i wouldn't want to stay on the other side of the road, waiting cos i'm scared i'd get hit by a car and so at the end of the day i'll bite my nails and wonder what could have been if i actually crossed over.... i can never get a six if i don't throw the dice.... so i'm letting myself go completely(well gradually) and i'm going to let myself take all the risk i can...i'll risk selling my ideas, i'll risk speaking out, and hell yeah i'll risk falling in love.....


NB...is it me or is greys anatomy loosing IT,it just doesnt seem to have as much appeal this season,with burke(isiah washington) gone and all, i mean i can afford not to download episodes on itunes for weeks after its aired, which was so not possibly sane for the previous seasons.... hope it picks up its vibes again, or else i'd be McBroken!!

  1. OMG Chica!

    Okay, I was just writing this on someone else's blog last week. I LOVE Grey's. But, it is losing it's flava fo sho!

    Okay, here are my issues with this season:

    1. Dr. Burke isn't there.
    2. If Meredith and Derrick make out one more time I am going to scream.
    3. If Yang doesn't stop whining about doing surgeries *URGH*
    4. I am not fond of the new female Dr. She really doesn't add anything to me.

    Those aren't even the half. But at least you get my point. I LOVE Chanda. I wonder if she and her hubby are going to stay together. We will find out this week.

    The last of my "two cents" is that I like the spin-off "The Practice" better. Have you watched that show? It has more action but seems to be headed in the same direction as Grey's Anatomy in that every one in the office is sleeping together. Hmm...I need a little more plot and creativity that that...however, it is more appealing than Grey's these days.

    Good food for thought. I am naturally a risk taker, I think I have been that way since I was a little girl, so my mother says. I have always had the if it doesn't work oh well, try something else type attitude. But, I understand that for other it's not that easy to just put yourself out there because you want to already know what's going to happen or at least calculate your steps. So, I totally understand.
    So, I have an assignment for you Fantasy Queen.
    Risk Taker Assignment(RSA) #1: Write down one are in your life that you need to take a risk. This week take two steps toward stepping out of your comfort zone in that area. Hit me up on next Sunday and let me know how it went.
    *I have my pinky out* Pinky swear me you are going to do it.

    Hit me up!

  2. It's me again. I forgot to say. GREAT post. I really enjoyed that. I love how you took that show and applied it to your own life. I do that with movies, but I have never done it with TV shows. You just gave me a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

    I love dropping by your spot.

  3. Havent watched this season, but I find I;m not too enthusiastic. Ithink the dumbest thing the producers of the show did, was remove BURKE. HELLO??? That's viewer suicide!
    But I think I knew the show would lose its fire eventually. They always do.. sigh.

  4. Greys is a great show. I mean sure the drama is great but it also manages to highlight difficult issues like race, euthanasia, child abuse, etc. Each episode has a theme which is reflected in the lives of the manjor characters. Meredith is one messed up mama but that is what makes her character so endearing. You parallel the dilemmas in Meredith's life with yours very well.

  5. *sigh* is all i can do... Grey's Anatomy became my only companion once upon a time in my life (2weeks plus ago)...

    @onydchic, i feel u on that, removing burke...not good.
    and like every show the fire eventually goes out, i lost desperate housewives right at the begining of season 3, ugly betty doesnt do it for me anymore, i'm hopinng i dont get lost on lost too.

  15. I still love d show and would watch it rather than do some work...Is it only me that find myself crying after some episodes of Grey's anatomy. I can't even stop the tears, they just gush down my cheeks....
    Like u said behind the drama, u r faced with issues that involve nothing but deep thinking on the viewer part, and most times...i end up crying......

    I just love the show...not sure which one i love best, HEROES OR GREY'S??? who cares.......I love them both

  16. Oh No you did not!!

    I sat for thirty minutes debating the pros and cons in commenting on a post about Greys Anatomy.
    I still cant beleive you did it.
    Sigh.

    lol.
    Okay.
    Nice comparison between your life and Merediths.
    Off the record i love the female stars in the series. I love the plots and the depth the script writers give to the indivual cases that come up.
    And i'm nuts for the soundtracks.

    But the Mc Guys?
    Dont get me started.

    lol.

    @ Afrobabe: I'm with you . Herore is a fantastic show. ALthough i must admt the second season has not been as nice as the first. Thus far...
