    I'm with you, Fanny! I just like a good story. I don't take these people on to be personal friends.

    Re: Grey's Anatomy

    To me it's not a matter of feeling like the characters are personal friends. I just want them and their stories to be interesting and capture my attention. The relationship between Yang and Owen has been a drag for the past year. If there was one character I wouldn't miss, it would be Owen, and I think it would be all for the better in terms of Christina and her story without him. The only characters I find interesting anymore are Yang -- if they let her be Yang without Owen like an albatross around her neck -- and Karev. Also liked Little Grey. Meredith has been boring for the most part all last season, Derek is a pompous a$$, and there wasn't much going on with Sloane. I still like Richard and hope they give him more to do. Arizona and Callie didn't have much going on last year, either. I've always enjoyed Bailey, just not when she was flirting with the male nurse all the time. Don't know if Ben is really leaving, or whether it was a plot device to make her realize how much she wants him to be in her life.

    I've felt for the last two seasons or maybe even a little more but for sure the last couple seasons the story lines have been on a steady march down a downward spiral. That's my problem. Then cap it off with last season and now I don't have any characters I even like to save me from the storylines. The writing is just not that great anymore and how the characters were developed leave me wanting a whole lot.

    I know right? I don't know how ER managed to last 15 years. Maybe I just don't agree with Shonda's vision. The folks here come up with better storylines.

    I don't know!!! Wonder if it won't last? I'm guessing Ellen was only allowed to say so much. Anxious for the season premiere!
