2-14 Tell Me Sweet Little Lies

January 23rd, 2006

I got caught up on my GA tivos just in time, well, okay 3 or 4 hours in advance to actually watch this episode live.

STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THE EPISODE YET

Not a really strong episode, I thought. The theme of each episode can be pretty heavy handed sometimes and this one was an occasion where maybe it would have been wise to reel that in a tad. But the Yang/McDreamy dynamic was pretty good. I don’t think they’ve had much face to face time so far. Besides, McDreamy needs the perspective about him and Meredith and Bailey can’t deliver it all the time. If anyone’s more capable of non-offensive emotional brutality than Bailey, it’s Yang. Go her.

And there’s always the dialogue, with it’s kind of spastic pacing. Witness the dog conversation in the locker room. Rapid fire emotional sputter, then a big pause, then an outburst. Awesome.

Burke gets cooler and cooler the more we see him.
“The next time you forge my signature, let me know. Save me the trip.”
“That’s it? You’re not going to yell and say ‘dammit Grey’ and storm out?”
“I will if you want me to.”

Awesome.

It was also the night of the annoying women patients. Sylvie and Naomi. OMFG. How did Naomi’s husband handle it? I’m willing to bet a lot of people found Sylvie to be sweet. Me, I was hoping George would break out the ether on her, wrap her up in a carpet roll and leave her for the recycling people. But maybe I’m just a jerk.

The nurse thing. Did that just come from nowhere, pretty much? I know, not exactly, but two weeks, three tops prior to the strike? Hm. I wonder how long they’ll drag that out. Funny how Bailey and the nurses go away in the same episode. I hope that’s not a message. I think Shonda Rimes might have been a nurse. Hmmmm. I should check on that if I can find the energy.

I’ve been noticing that a large portion of my page hits come from search engines regarding Grey’s Anatomy. I guess I’d better step up to the plate on that. Since none of my friends seem to be reading this thing.
