Grey's Anatomy > Fox News Article Calls Grey's Anatomy "Irresponsible Entertainment" > Comments Page 2
It's TV and most shit on TV is not real...even those so called reality shows...anyway FOX wrote about it because the show is popular and we will read it because it is about GA and so we will read it....they are doing their job.....getting people to read and may attention to them....I love GA...
I am sorry if people cannot put together that any fictional show on t.v. is NOT REAL and so HOLLYWOOD then they are at fault not the show!!!! Shows are made to tug at the emotions and make people feel something. If this show sounded like a Discovery Channel Documentary then I highly doubt it would have kicked CSI's ASS on Thursday nights! GET A LIFE PEOPLE WITH TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS! They must have been hurting for a story and nothing else interesting on there plates. How sad is that!
Fox is just jealous of ABC's amazing hit TV show. It is highly entertaining show on so many levels, and it 's very. very popular, not to mention that it is probably making a LOT of money. So, the people who wrote that article are probably just trying to create drama to turn the attention away from the show. Grey's Anatomy is awesome, so people can just... cut it out.
Ooh for goodness sake, it is a TV SHOW!! Not reality!!! I don't watch the show to get a dose of reality, I watch it to be entertained and to get away from the chaos that we live in.....With everything else going on in the world like the war on terroism, people starving across the globe, I want to know why they chose to write about a television show? He needs to go write about some current events or something and quit taking tv shows literally (I would hate to see what he thought about soap operas). It's ridiculous. I still LOVE my Grey's Anatomy!!!
Are you kidding? Someone actually took the time to prepare this ... Do they realize that they could have been reporting on some other important news and not this. A vast majority, if not more fan of the show know right from wrong, know real life of tv ... People need to realize that we do not need someone else to dictate how to interpret what we watch on television. It's TV for goodness sake ... get over it ... move on ... Grey's Anatomy ROCKS!!!!
Organ donation is a long process, does anyone think it isn't? Does anyone in their right minds believe that what Izzy did to try & save Deny would be ignored in a real hospital setting? If they do, they shouldn't have a television to watch the show, they should be in school, learning a thing or two.
I'm sure alot of fans, including myself have scoffed at a number of things in this show. But it's a show, it's entertainment. What harm will really come of this? Someone that is smart enough to get into & through medical school & become a surgical intern might try the same stunt one day? I don't think anyone who would try this in real life, would get through the 1st year of med school.
If you want to disect shows, go for reality tv, that shows it's ok to cheat/steal/lie/starve yourself/trade spouses, etc whatever necessary to win.
oh come one... they're doing this because Grey's ratings are kicking *ss!!! i bet if GA wasn't the #1 show right now, they wouldn't give it a time of day. and also, 17 seconds aired last may, why just make a fuss now? whatever!
Fox news GET A LIFE!!!! Just a show this is ONLY TV
yes it is only TV, but the article made some good points. there needs to be some truth behind the shows. something as serious asa transplant there are so many things that need to fall into place. what izzy did was wrong. i do think however that the critisisms of the show should have waited a few more episodes, to see what actually becomes of Dr. Stevens, there could very well be some more repercussions for her actions. both lawfully as well as personaly (like say guilt.)
I have a friend who had a heart transplant, his 7 yr. anniversary was 10-25-06. If you think for one moment that I find Greys offensive, you are wrong! I can tell the difference between TV and the real world! Get a life, and I am grateful that you had a successful transplant, but realize that we all do enjoy the escape of the real world and the horror that it gives us each day. I would have destroyed Izzie myself had this been real world; but instead I was able to cry for her and Denny. Being able to enjoy Grey's Anatomy is what makes my real world bearable. What makes your real world bearable Peter Brown? Writing b.s. for Fox? Sorry for you!
It's FOX News people... That should be enough to tell you what they say is worthless.
I totally do not agree with this article. I think the vast majority of Americans know that if this were real life we wouldn't even think of letting Izzie go unpunished. If anyone takes this show to heart than they have probl;ems differentiating reality from fiction. I think that grey's made an issue of organ donation, and it showed everyday Americans how important it is to donate and showed how not receiving an organ that is needed affects not just the patient but the patient's loved ones as well. I work in the hospital world and stuff like this is not real...anyone that questions the storylines needs to relize it is just that.....a story!
I agree with you guys - I don't think the majority of people believe that what happens in Grey's is true in hospitals across the country.
Organ AND tissue donation is very important. One organ donor can save 8 lives and one tissue donor can help improve the quality of life in 50 people. 50! I had a tissue transplant over the summer and I went from crutches and chronic knee pain to some pain, but I can actually function. :)
I think its great, quite an enertaining article.. makes me laugh at how serious people take some things. I totally agree, it is farfetched, and to be honest i myself have had a kidney transplant, but i absolutely love greys anatomy! I watch it because of the romance, its beautiful, i certainly do not watch the show to sit there and pick out mistakes. like almost everyone else has already stated... its just a tv show... ratings have proved it.
Oh jeez. What a strange and silly article. How good would Grey's be if followed interns in an actual hospital? Not very. Actually, not at all. Look at Prison Break. You're essentially rooting for escaped convicts. Would that somehow induce the public to make light of convicts and sympathize with them? No, because people have more sense than that. It's just entertainment, very good entertainment at that. So stop complaining, whoever wrote this, because you have nothing else better to do.
It's not meant to be taken seriously. I mean, I'm sure other medical shows, like E.R., have done things like this before. If not, who cares? Grey's Anatomy is far more about the relationships within the hospital, rather than the medicine. If we wanted to watch REAL medicine happening, this show wouldn't be the one to watch. It's the characters and relationships that this show is based around.
That's why people watch television to get away from reality for a while. If you don't realize the differance I suggest theropy. Im sure Dr. Phil would love to have you on his show.
Does Fox realize that "House" does not follow the rules of ethics either. Love the show "House" but it is just a TV show. Just Like "Grey's Anatomy", House is fictional. Would you really want a doctor who abuses drugs to treat you or or child, I do not think so......
I agree, Fox is being silly (and a little jealous, perhaps?)
If a drama needs to adhere to the "letter of the law" - then what about the "reality" tv shows, which just happen to be a staple of the FOX network.....hmmmmm?
This is utterly ridiculous! This is only TELEVISION!!! If people are throwing a fit over Grey's Anatomy they should make a club and go after each and every television show. I can garuntee EACH tv show has something 'wrong' or 'illegal' in it. ALL of the soap opera's do it. one minute a guy's beating the crap out a man and a week later, files are dropped.
People like this need to realize that this is ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION and either sit down and watch or walk away.
