Weekend Diversions: Grey’s Gossip, Gay Superheros and Gadget Lust

I’m giving you a little bit of everything today with nothing really related to the next thing. And I tried to make them all alliterative and stuff to SEEM related, but trust me, they’re not.

First up, if you know me, you know this has been front and center in my mind lately – Grey’s Anatomy, most specifically the whole Izzie / George thing – should they stay or should they go? First it’s just a silly little rumor which no one really takes seriously, then almost every member of the cast is confirming it, then almost every member of the cast is denying it as soon as Shonda does. Have they been forcibly silenced? Is all this gossip leaking on purpose to boost their known poor rankings this season? How do they have poor rankings in the midst of one of their most controversial, interesting seasons ever? I can hardly believe they aren’t getting enough viewers when almost everyone I know and don’t know has an opinion on the Denny thing – obviously they’ve watched if they know enough to complain.

I know people love to hate on Izzie, but you have to admit she’s one of the most interesting characters in the show and has had a lot of big arcs in this series. She’s also a gorgeous, successful level headed actress with a long career ahead of her. If she really wants to move on, I can’t necessarily blame her – but I also think that her character still has a lot of mileage left in her – and if Izzie leaves, it’s going to break Alex Karev who has finally become real and almost likable. Do the producers really want to do this to him again? Or will he leave, too? As for poor Georgie? Yeah I can see him leaving. His character has been all but silent for weeks and since it doesn’t look like there will be a George / Lexie hook up anymore, I’m really not sure where he could go from here. I liked the military angle, but if Shonda really has something even better planned, then I’m guessing I’ll be fine with it. Speaking of crazy – Sadie? Yeah I’m happy to see her go, but feel kind of weird about her whole character – I told my husband last night that Sadie on this show was kind of like forcibly hanging out with a drunk stranger. It’s awkward and uncomfortable and when they finally leave, nothing has changed on your end except having been uncomfortable and awkward for a few hours. Basically – what was that all about? Her role in Alias was way better, even though I hated her on that show, too.

Which characters story arcs your favorite this season? Least favorite? How do you feel about Izzie and George potentially leaving the show?


So in a completely unrelated change of tangents, apparently DC Comics is going to release their first ever gay superhero. And given their target audience, it should be unsurprising that by that I mean a lesbian. Yes apparently Batwoman will be a fan of the ladies – I support this, I mean, I think it’s about time and yet not even a little bit shocking really. I’m sure she’ll be a big hit with comic book fanboys everywhere.


Alright, and after that brief (awkward and uncomfortable?) intermission, have you seen the new Kindle 2? Apparently thinner than an iPhone it is admittedly drool worthy. But at $350 I still can’t see me ever justifying that kind of expense, especially considering you still have to buy the books you’ll be reading on it. Still, take a look at some of these pictures and day dream with me for a bit…

    I just love Greys, but my Sky+ box died on me before I finished watching series 4, so I don’t want to watch series 5 until I finish series 4 – what a dilemma!

    We both discussed the whole Grey’s thing elsewhere so I’ll leave it @ that. I’m surprised that Shonda has bothered to deny the whole leaving thing. Guess we’ll see. I would be willing to bet that part of the reason for keeping Katherine though is for ratings – as in she now has star power so they’re keeping her. As for TR. I wish they’d stop punishing him (that’s what it seems like) & actually give him something to do! Although I did think his character was awesome to Sadie @ the end. So. There you have it.

    I have been coveting that Kindle ever since it came out. This new one is even better! Slim & gorgeous. drool, slobber, pant…

    And Happy V day to you too!!

    I love Grey’s but the whole Izzy/Denny storyline was over the top. Almost a jumping the shark grab. Glad it’s over with and am very curious how they’ll get write off those two.

    That Kindle would be completely awesome. Something to slip into your purse to take where ever. I still couldn’t see paying for a book that you still have to actually buy the books for. I wonder how many books it actually holds? That to save space alone would be a good reason I suppose.
