    Really? I had not heard that about the show. It only had a couple of big named actors, so I would think that would keep the cost down, but it did have lots of explosion, airplane, and gun fire scenes. They had so many great actors on that show that I was not familar with. One of the biggest names was the guy who is famous for the All State Insurance commercials. I LOVED his character on The Unit. I loved his wife too. She is a super great actress, though not well known.

    I'm not sure where I was when it was airing on tv. I must have been in a cave, because I had never even heard of the show until lately.

    I think what kept the cost up is that many story lines were not taped in the States, not necessarily in the country they were suppose to be in, but a foreign country non the less.
    I only have a kitchen because it came with the house.

    For me, I'm with you. Dennis Haysbert will always be "President Palmer" LOL.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    We're watching this and every, single time Christina comes on, I'm getting chills. I just can't imagine, being in her shoes around Teddy. Eek!!

    I loved last nights episode. The girl whose parents/grandparent that died, plus her injured siblings....love her. She's a tough cookie. No idea who that actress is but she blew me away.

    Christina's storyline has given the actress a lot to work with this season and she's running with it. She's been amazing. When Teddy walked away..she squeezed her eyes shut and those two tears streamed down her face..omg. I was tearing up. How she held it together while she told Teddy was crazy.

    And of course, I loved the ending. Meredith looked so damn happy. You don't get to see that expression on her face often.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didn’t hear me call shotgun.

    LOVED this episode. even with the big hiatus, I find the writing more gripping than it has been.

    I love the range that Cristina shows - she knows when she has to hold it together.

    I knew when Meredith said "pizza" like 3 times that the doorbell wasn't going to be pizza. Couldn't you just see the pure JOY on her face?? Love Ellen Pompeo. She nails the Mer character.

    I need Sloan and Lexi together.

    I cried when Teddie was in with Henry. I hate that they killed him off.

    I know a lot of people think this show is past it's prime, but I don't agree. It definitely had some rough episodes (like all of the Erica Hahn episodes - yuck) and the singing episode (earplugs??) but I love it - and think it's really great this season.
