Is it just me...

...or was the season premiere of "Grey's Anatomy" last night highly disappointing? I felt like it wasn't the up to the caliber of previous season premieres and it certainly didn't do justice to the way the show ended last spring.

Izzie's story line and the dialogue she had to say was atrocious. Her lines reminded me of Meredith's "Choose me. Pick me. Love me." of the first season. My friend who watched it with me said, "There's nothing worse than an fake deer." I added, "Coupled with a crappy child actor!"

And what was that random rant she spit out at George in the stairway? Izzie was like a high school student in a Shakespearean play...she knew where to put the emphasis to make it sound smooth, but she didn't have a clue what she was saying.

I'm going to stick around and see if the writers dig themselves out of this hole. I'm worried that Shonda Rhimes might go the way of "The Boondocks" creator...get so many things cooking that none of them end up tasting good.

Hi,
I was disappointed too by the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy! I was expecting much more!

(I'm a new reader of your blog, I like it :) I'm doing my Master Degree in Literature at Université Laval, Québec. )

I just watched the episode last night and I had the same reactions. Did you catch "Private Practice"? I'd like it to work but I was disappointed in that debut as well.

It kind of sucked. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't great. Oh and Meredith sister is sort of blah. I feel like they are forcing her on me. And I'm tired of Derek and Meredith.

Good point about Meredith's sister, Angela. Everything seems a bit forced this season.

It's not just you. Grey's is crappy in general this season. It seems like all the good Grey's writers moved over to Privat Practice, which is a pretty awesome show.

Izzy is a completely different character than she was from seasons 1 and 2. To qoute Common's old school rap, "I use to love her." Now, I so don't. I'm also a bit annoyed that nowhere in the Grey's Anatomy universe is there a healthy, funtioning relationship. Everybody's cheating or afraid of/too lazy and insecure for commitment. I'm this close to being over this show, but I'm keeping hope alive.
