Seriously - don't hate!

So, I am addicted to Grey's Anatomy. I think it's reached intervention levels. I took some time off during season 4 because the writing absolutely sucked and I didn't agree with the show firing Isaiah Washington. Yes, he said fag or faggot or some other inappropriate slang word, but he also apologized and started meeting with a GLAAD spokesperson or something. Sure, he shouldn't have said what he said, but I know that I have said, 'That's so retarded!' or 'That's gay!' before without thinking and I would like to think that if I accidentally said that at work, I would not get fired. And I am sorry, but if you are going to fire someone for saying something stupid, fire them. Don't wait until the end of the season and make it look like all is forgiven and then fire them. That is just wrong. Plus, Cristina is my favorite character and after Burke left, her story line got lame.

My point is that I watch Grey's Anatomy and if you don't like that, well then you can just suck it, retard!

So, I was watching this weeks episode online since my TV died and I can't bring myself to drop the big bucks on a flat screen right now. And it could just be me, but I think that Ellen Pompeo has gained some much needed weight since last season. I mean, she is still scary skinny, but she doesn't look like a bobblehead doll quite as much now. And I want to know why she usually looks fine when I see pictures of her in People or US magazine, but when I am watching the show all I can think about is how washed out and homely she looks. I mean, can scrubs really make a person look that bad? My younger sister wears scrubs to work and she still manages to look cute, so I am pretty sure that is not the case. So I guess my second point is that ABC should fire their make-up artists, unless they are going for heroine sheik. And if that is really what someone is asking for, then they should be fired!

i'm fairly sure they're going for the no make up look which would make her look washed out.

I am glad that she gained the weight! She looks great!
As for her looking good in US magazine, i think that for the show they have to show her as a person that doesn't put time or effort into her look. But that is just a theory!
Can't wait to see McArmy come back, love a man in uniform!!

I love the show. I only have one real life friend who thinks of it the way I do. We call each other and talk about them like they are our friends. In fact, one time we talked about the show in front of someone and they thought we were talking about real people because we are both so invested in the show. Maybe my friend and I need a life? But you are right that she Ellen Pompeo looks better with the weight thing. Maybe the makeup is to make her look all gloomy and depressed as she is quite often?

I've only seen one episode. I don't allow myself to get hooked to weekly tv shows anymore. I made that mistake with LOST. I always feel stupid saying I can't do something because "my show" is coming on.

Ya know, everyone has said something in their life that isn't pc but didn't really mean harm by it. People need to lighten up.
