Dear Shonda Rhimes,

i love you, you know i do. you had me at the very first sight of mcdreamy. you had me through the Meredith and Derek good times. and the bad. you had me through the Cristina and Burke good times. and the bad. you had me when you turned Coach Taylor into pink mist. you taught me that Addison is a total rock star. you had me with all your ‘seriously’s. you had me at Callie O’Malley.

i loved you so much that i stood by you through the rough patches. i forgave you for George’s hair (anyone remember George’s hair!) i forgave you for the Meredith/George romp. i forgave you for the travesty that was Denny and Izzy. I forgave you for dragging out the horrible 8.7 million dollar storyline. and i even forgave you for your latest blip – the whole Meredith dies and comes back to life bit.

but last night you went to a dark, dark place. this was a new low. George and Izzy? Are you kidding me?

this, my dear Shona, may be unforgiveable. you crossed a real line here. and…to add a little salt to my wounds, Bailey was on screen for all of, maybe, a minute and a half last night. please, please, please…for all that is sacred in Shondaland…stop with all the Seattle Grace inter-staff sexytime. (did i really just say that?). you are going to run out of people for these interns to hop in the sack with.

on a good note, i enjoyed the premiere of October Road last night. sure, it was campy and predictable and cheesy and schmaltzy. it was Beautiful Girls meets Dawson’s Creek meets One Tree Hill meets Sweet Home Alabama. it had a great soundtrack. and it had! yay. it will likely get cancelled, but i’ll enjoy the cheese while it lasts.

love, Ali


  1. PS – I’m not alone; my friend (who only watches this show because his wife makes him watch it with her and is totally not into it at all, seriously) thinks the Izzy/George thing was so wrong (but it would have been better if Izzy was crying when we saw her)

  2. First thing I thought when I saw them in bed was “Ohhhh…I wonder what Ali has to say about THIS!”

  3. But did O’Malley die? LOL Just kidding! Thanks for the wrap up since I obviously fell asleep at the end.

  7. Well, now I have to watch it! (I missed this weeks, but I have it PVR’d.) Great post, Al!

  8. There’s no way George would get that much tail (remember…not even a year has passed in their world) out here among us mortals.

    Truly despicable.

  9. I had to avert my eyes from the George and Izzy scene. No. Just no.

  10. exactly exactly exactly. i’ve been calling it forEVER, but i never expected it to really happen. and also, i lol’d when you said “with all your ‘seriously’s”. I thought I was the only one who noticed!

    Comment by Haley on March 16, 2007
  11. Yes, I have to say that I agree with you. Grey’s is one of my most favorite shows and I was sooo disappointed with George and Izzy sleeping together. I like Callie, but think that she and George won’t last anyway…but Izzy?? They’re supposed to be BF!! I guess we’ll see what happens next. I was also disappointed that Bailey wasn’t in the show much.
    October Road did have me interested too, but I have to agree with you. It’ll probably be cancelled. I’ll enjoy the cheese for now too. :p Have a great weekend Ali!

  14. I was so thinking Izzy & Alex were gonna hook-it-up when he kissed her cheek! But no, Izzy & George??!!?? COME ON! They’re going to ruin that show.

    I thought Meredith dying was ridiculous.

  15. You tell em. I’m not happy about the George Izzy thing either. Grrrrr

    Comment by Anne on March 17, 2007
  16. I thought the exact same thing… I’m really hoping we’ll find out they didn’t sleep together….

    And Christina and that old guy…. ewwwwwww.

    Comment by Jodi on March 17, 2007
  17. I’m not liking Izzy’s character lately. She’s so mean and bitter to Callie for absolutely no reason.
    October Road was good.

    Comment by Patricia on March 17, 2007
  18. ok no October Road tidbits, its still on the TiVo.

    As for Greys, I conveintly blocked that whole Izzy/George sex thing from my mind until just now. Though whoever got that English guy was a smart person

  19. Inter-staff sexytime. You kill me.

    Comment by Chris on March 19, 2007
  20. I haven’t liked either George or Izzy’s characters for a long time, so this didn’t bother me as much as I thought it would (cause I glanced at your blog before I watched it on my PVR!). I do think the story line sucks though.

    Callie O’Malley rocks. Rich Callie O’Malley makes my heart sing!

    Comment by Chantal on March 19, 2007
  21. Am I the only person who is sitting here (after just watching it on DVR) thinking, “If Callie’s family is so rich, why was she living in the basement of the hospital?” And that if Ali married George she would be Ali O’Malley?

    Comment by Di on March 19, 2007
  22. I totally agree with you about Grey’s what’s going on there? I have loved that show and watched every single episode, but the George and Izzy thing??? WTF!

    I like Callie and George together, and that seems to be on its way out. And what’s up with Meredith all better one week after nearly dying (I didn’t mind the storyline, but come on a little more realistic please).

    I hope they get back on track and show more of Miranda “the nazi” I miss her.
