I wanted to post here earlier, but his episode has me baffled. In fact, all I can say is Holy Mother of …, which were Izzy's (one of the surgeons of Grey's Anatomy) words and one of the words that best described this episode.

The surgeons were summoned to triage the wounded who were victims of a ferry boat disaster of tremendous magnitude. I watched this episode over 3 times. It was hyped as one that will top last year's "super bowl" episode "It’s the End of the World," wherein a live bomb was flung inside a victim's cavity and the surgeons needed to remove it. In my opinion "Walk on Water" does not come up to par to "It’s the End of the World." Of course, there are 2 more episodes to go, so I really should not make my hard-nosed opinion as of yet.

There are a few things that bother me about Grey's Anatomy. Do surgeons really get to treat triage? Do surgeons get to go in the field where the accident occurs? Do surgeons do the job that should be done by paramedics and nurses? Are any residents, surgeons, doctors who are reading this entry who could answer these questions for me? Please enlighten me.

In this episodes' story, Meredith for some reason almost drowned in her bathtub. It was either intentional or accidental. The show ends with Meredith being thrown into the water. Will she drown? Will she die? I don't think so. Otherwise, the show will have to change its name. It be no longer be called Grey's Anatomy. There was a little girl with Meredith who never spoke and was a witness to Meredith's drowning. She walked away from the scene of the accident. Who is the girl? What is her purpose to the story? Hopefully, we will find out in tomorrow's episode.

Karev's personality is coming out. He is not the despicable person he was in Season 1. Gynecology should be his field. Izzy is forced to grow into a good unattached medical doctor. Will she be able to handle it? Christina still has to learn not to be so cold and relax around people.

There's not much to tell otherwise, In any event, I should be able to say more about the show in a few days. Tomorrow, the second episode is on. It is called "Drowning by Land." I hope I will be a bit less confused.

I just finished reading an article about Isaiah Washington and his homophobic slur. From what I have been reading about him, the man has a low-boiling point. He lost his temper and with his bad behavior ousted his coworker, actor T. R. Knight (Dr. O'Malley). T. R. Knight is gay and did not want to disclose it to anyone. You know what? I don’t think that I really needed to know that. It is up to T. R. Knight to let the public know about his intimate affairs. It really is not our business. But it is now in the open. The public knows it, and T. R. is just as respected and loved by his fans as he was before this particular tidbit was known.

Apparently, Isaiah Washington displayed his lack of judgment not once, but twice. Once while taping the show and the other time when publicly apologizing. Apparently Mr. Washington does not know the proper word to say when mentioning people who prefer same-sex partners. They are called homosexuals, lesbians, even gay… not f****t. Besides, we don’t confront anybody and curse them out by their sexual preference. For example, you don’t go to a heterosexual person and call out, “you heterosexual bastard.” So, in my book what Isaiah did was wrong. I am glad to hear that he is undergoing therapy. I just hope that he will retain what he learned and act in a responsible manner next time he is angry and is face to face with someone different from him.

Thursday night I watched my comedy shows and Grey's Anatomy. Here's what I thought about them:

My Name Is Earl.
This show cracks me up. And I came to the conclusion that the more I watch the show, the more I fall in love with Jaime Pressley. She is a heck of an actress. She cracks me up. I simply adore her acting. She makes Joy Turner a palatable misfit. This show is about rectifying a bad action into good.

This week's story was about amending the wrong Earl did in aiding Joy in kidnapping the driver of the truck she stole in revenge for not being able to return an unwanted entertainment center. The story was surreal and funny. Needless to say, I laughed a lot.

The Office.
I was so sad last week when Dwight Shrute quit his job. Man, the writers of this show are brilliant. Shrute found temporary job with Staples (what a way to advertise). New blood was introduced. The people at Dunder and Mifflin missed Dwigth, even Jim. Wow. But the best piece of writing of all: Michael is a great boss. He is annoying, uncouth, and clueless. Nonetheless, he is a good boss: A boss who cares about his workers. I love this show.

Grey's Anatomy. 
Let's face it, this show is a glorified night-time soap. No way, in real life, doctors behave as sexually charged as these doctors. No way, in real life, do surgeons do procedures on loved ones, friends, and acquaintances. In order to do a great job, you must not be personally attached. In Grey's Anatomy, they do. But, as I said earlier, this show is a glorified night-time soap. However, I love it. I don't know why, but I do. I guess the actors are so good and the lines are superb. And tonight, I cried. O’Malley’s father died, and Christine (a hateful character) said the most gut-wrenching lines. At least, it was gut wrenching to me, because it hit home:

Christine: "There's a club... The Dead Dad's Club. And you can't be in it, until you're in it. You can try to understand. You can try to sympathize. But until you feel that loss..."

O'Malley: "I don't know how to exist in a world that my dad doesn't."

"Yeah, that really never changes."

My father died on March 13, 1987. That was exactly how felt. The show brought back those sad memories. Like O'Malley, I, too, had to make the decision to let my father go. In my case, we didn't let the tubes in him. I saw him pass away, slowly, peacefully. It was just me and my mother. That was the day that I joined the Dead Dad's Club. I wish none of us were forced to join it.

All in all it was a good TV watching night: Two comedy shows made me laugh. One drama made me cry.

The following shows that I watch made TVGUIDE's Best TV Shows of 2006:


 "Save the cheerleader, save the world." That catchy tagline helped this new superhero series skyrocket into the popular culture. But the snappy phrase isn't what keeps millions of viewers watching each week — it's the great story about ordinary people who have discovered that they have strange abilities. From the politician who can fly and the aforementioned cheerleader who is indestructible to the adorable Hiro who can manipulate time, these stories seem to offer an endlessly fascinating fount of interconnected characters who cope with either keeping their power a secret or using it for good or their own personal gain. While the cliff-hanger endings always leave fans with as many questions as answers, the fast-paced style is appealing and easy to catch on to, whether a newcomer or a dedicated fan.

Grey's Anatomy
Grey's Anatomy

Seattle may be known for its damp and dreary weather, but inside Seattle Grace Hospital things are definitely hot. With doctors the likes of McDreamy, Burke, McSteamy and Addison running around the operating room, all of a sudden getting sick doesn't seem so bad. The skilled surgeons even cut right through the überpopular CSI with their move to a high-stakes Thursday-night time slot. Many still watch the steady procedural, but this medical drama's focus on interpersonal relationships is more addictive and definitely more fun to watch. Plus, it can pack an emotional wallup when you least expect it: The death of the beloved Denny, the breakdown of the chief's marriage, or the clash of egos between Burke and Cristina. It is a rollicking, sweet, sexy and sublime ride.

The Office
The Office

This comedy managed to surprise fans by taking a sweet turn in its season finale with a highly anticipated kiss between flirty coworkers Jim and Pam. But thankfully, while that moment was swoon-worthy, the show hasn't forgotten that it isn't all about the office romances. It is all about the funny, though with a great balance of inappropriate comments from Michael, bizarre facts from Dwight and an influx of new blood from the recently defunct Stamford branch, The Office is more entertaining than ever. This fall alone has been filled with instantly quotable lines and uncomfortable moments like no other comedy on TV. Even Office mastermind Ricky Gervais graced the show with his behind-the-scenes presence by penning a witty episode about a convicted felon at the Scranton branch. It was wickedly wonderful, and so is this show in general.


Admittedly, the first six episodes that aired this fall were too filled with torture and were not Lost at its best. But that doesn't discount last spring's revelation that Penny Widmore is in the real world and actively searching for Desmond. And there were a few other shocking moments, like seeing the suburban neighborhood that the Others live in, discovering that there is a second island, and watching Michael shoot Ana Lucia and Libby. Lost does twists and turns better than almost any other show on TV. Fans may quibble at the lack of information and answers, but trying to decipher the clues and figure out what the heck is going on is half the fun. Plus, Elizabeth Mitchell (as the lovely and mysterious Juliet) and Michael Emerson (as the spine-tinglingly creepy Henry/Ben) have been welcome additions.

Honorable Mention:


This show can always be counted on to tickle some funny bones with its madcap insanity set in a hospital—and having three of the lead doctors expecting children hasn't been a curse, it's been a giggle-filled blessing.

Unfortunately, other shows that I watch, which I think should have, at least, made the "Honorable Mention" category, are not even cited, such as Jericho (which I find I riveting) and Desperate Housewives (which I find extremely funny). However, I didn't expect the other shows that I watch, such as Two and a half men, Boston Legal, My Name Is Earl, and Reba, to make any categories.
