Hi Bloop,
You are an amazingly rude person yourself! Consider that before pointing a finger at me. I never claimed that my posts are free of typographical errors. I am also human, BUT the gargantuan difference here is, my posts may have two or three errors, whereas other posts will have a thousand and one errors. So, if I made one error, it is forgivable. I do not need lessons on English or Grammar, especially from you! Secondly, PLEASE don't talk to me about linguistics! I speak in a formal sort of way---that's me. You have absolutely no right to point out 'commendable' as a wrong word to use, because it is a widely accepted English word, which is used in common parlance by most people who are native speakers of English. So unless you are a hippie or a weirdo who has made a habit of diluting and showing contempt for the English language, please note that whatever I have written does not have a disclaimer notice below it...From next time I shall consider adding this as a disclaimer below every post of mine (hope this puts a huge smile on your face, as your post put on mine!):

"Please read only if you do not have a freaking inferiority complex about yourself. This post is injurious to those who are self-proclaimed policemen of the world, and think no end of themselves!"

P.S: I was not even remotely pretending to be poetic. I just detest the pedestrian style in which some people write, in the garb of being 'cool'. So if this pisses you off, here is another disclaimer: " This post is only a perception, not an unbreakable law of the land, so do not turn this into a silly blog war!"

HAVE A NICE DAY!

@Rose I'm not saying you can't have an opinion. I'm just saying you should do it decently without name calling. And I know it's not me your attacking but nonetheless I feel like I'm a part of a group here, so no one in this group should be called names because there spelling isn't perfect or they say things that you can't resonate with. Like you said, everyone should have an opinion. Even if you don't think it sounds intelligent.

Thank you. That's all I'm going to say about that.
Anyways I do agree with you on many points. The first being the following: the characters on Grey's are flawed. That's why I love them. They allow me (and other viewers I hope) to connect with said characters because life isn't always hunky dory. Heck, 75% of the time, life really sucks. These are characters who are built on imperfections in such a great way that I can only applaud the writers.
Second: The Meredith and Owen tension was bound to erupt. Both of them have reached there breaking point and they were both going to crack. Both of them miss Christina; Owen wants his wife back and Meredith wants her soul mate back. Because as mentioned, Meredith is barely hanging on, even though she doesn't realize it yet. She needs Christina to be okay. If Christina's crashes, then she crashes as well. Christina holds her up. And as people in the real world do, Owen and Meredith argued. The glass broke. I get it. But I still believe Owen had no right to kick Meredith out of that OR the way he did. Act professional is all I'm saying.

Dear KP,
I never knew that you feel so strongly about all this...Honestly, I had no intentions of hurting any feelings! I am not trying to prove any point. This is just a matter of perception. I think Derek's character is great. You may not...But at the end of the day, this is JUST A SHOW! Right? Secondly, there are people out here who write utter nonsense. It is not necessarily your posts. So why take it personally? Do you think that analysis of episodes by the average viewer is ever accurate? Are you a critic? The answer to both is no! I jotted down my opinions, you jotted down yours! Whatever happened to freedom of speech?

Dear Rose,

I do agree with you in one point: GA is a show where the characters are depicted realistically, they make mistakes, they are flawed, but they also grow - and yes, as adults they have disputes, professional and personal ones.

I can only speak for myself (but I do think that many people on this forum agree) when I say that I do see that Owen and Meredith were both just trying to stand up for what they believe is the best thing for a person they both love. Yes, situations like that come up between adults and yes, it was depicted in a very emotional, realistic way.
But acknowledging that does not mean you can't have - and voice - your own opinion about it. After all, that's what these forums are there for!

On another note, do you really think leading with "take no offence" makes the fact that you mock both people's English and their intellect any less offensive??
First of all, the 'writers' are called 'writers' here, because they are referred to like that anywhere within the context of this show. There is the 'Writers' Blog' for example, and Shonda Rhimes herself talks about the 'writers' of the show, not the 'creative heads' or 'scriptwriters'..
And secondly, where do you get off insulting other people's English when you apparently don't even know the difference between 'its' and 'it's'? Using the word 'commendably' (which, by the way, is way too formal for this kind of context and thus linguistically speaking inappropriate language as well) doesn't make you a poet either...

And, just for the record, I am not a native speaker of English, so pardon any errors in grammar, spelling and vocabulary, or the fact that my post may be completely unintelligible!

This is a television show. Meaning people will have opinions. Often times, those opinions will clash. So I find it rude that you would feel the need to call us "idiots" because we point out the flaws we believe appear on the show. Flaws we have the right to point out on this website. There is great beauty on this show and there is great tragedy, that everyone can agree on. But unlike you, not all of us want to discuss how "beautiful" Derek is inside and out or how adult like the Meredith and Owen situation was played out. Last time I checked, being a mature adult does not mean yelling at someone to get out of the OR in the middle of surgery.

First of all people...Take no offence, but some comments here seriously need corrections--they are full of typographical errors and silly spelling mistakes, which would make it really difficult for you guys to get your comments across to the 'writers', as one person calls them. One more thing-- do you guys really think that off-hand wise-cracks on how the 'writers' of the show (I found this hilarious, creative heads or scriptwriters would have been better) are ruining it, are appreciated? This is a show where the characters have grown together, come closer together...look at how sensitive and mature Alex Karev, the eternal playboy has come to become. Some people here who are masters at publishing wise-cracks online may think he is a 'loser', but then, its all about a mature perception. Look at how beautiful Derek is, inside out. Its his turn now to help Christina, and he is doing all he can, and commendably so. Look at Meredith--she may be 'dark and twisty', but her character is worthy of being emulated, if possible...leave out the dark parts of course!So people, grow up...The fight between Owen and Meredith is not a one versus the other situation..wake up idiots. Its two adults trying to reason with each other, and its been done commendably. Its a mature TV show for grown-ups. For those of you who fail to see why this is a show that has won critical acclaim, please go and watch something like 'Gossip Girl', where you don't need the brains to read between the lines or analyze.

I'm so glad Mark and Lexie seem to be getting back together. They've been my favourite couple since they got together and they're the only reason I kept watching during season 6. So I definitely think Mark is the better match for her! I do love Jackson though. I'm not sure who he should be with, but I hope he gets a good love interest (that isn't Lexie--I hate love triangles, and Mark/Lexie already went through that one). I've always liked the idea of Jackson/Cristina, but I know the writers are pretty set on Cristina/Hunt. Maybe April? I dislike how platonic relationships are practically impossible in Grey's land, but April/Jackson would still be cute.

Am I the only one who likes Lexie with Jackson?! Teehee.

I can't really tell who is wrong and who is right, regarding the Owen/Mer breakout, I can see both sides...

Still, I don't think Owen has the right to tell Meredith to stay away from Cristina. Owen might be married to her, but still, Meredith knows her much better and for much longer, and even though they're not talking right now, Mer is Cris' soulmate. And I don't think that Mer is reckless (anymore). She has grown a lot those past years, and the situation in the OR with the shooter, well, Owen more then anybody else should know what an extraordinary and traumatic situation and Mer wasn't herself. It took her years to get to the point where she had this stable happy relationship with Derek and finally allowed herself to be happy in that relationship, she was pregnant (and even happy about it, who would've ever imagined that??) and the man she loved was lying there with a whole in his chest and on the verge of dying. She was in shock!! Her reaction wasn't rational!! It was just all the fear and desperation that broke out of her!
And to throw that in her face like that is just completely insensitive and hateful..
And what about Owen with his PTSD? He choked Cris.. And after she helped him get over it, he put her through that whole Teddy thing.. Was that not reckless?
And lastly, he has no idea whatsoever what to do with Cris and how to get her back on track, so he is the last person to say that others, who try to help, should stay away..
