Grey’s Anatomy has been doing some weird stuff this season.
* Callie and Dr. Hahn had just started their whole gay relationship thing when all of a sudden Dr. Hahn just vanished into thin air, with no real explanation, never to be seen again. The Internet claims network interference may have been to blame.
* Denny’s back…as a ghost…and Izzy’s been sleeping with him. I still can’t believe this insanity was allowed to permeate more than one episode. She’d better have a brain tumor and not just be ‘crazy’. Denny must have the easiest job in Hollywood right now. “Follow Izzy around, say one or two lines, pick up paycheck, repeat.”
* Interns got caught operating on themselves in a storage room with stolen supplies, someone almost died, and nobody lost their job. Nobody at all!
The good news is that President Roslin of Battlestar Galactica has guest-starred on the last two episodes of Grey’s as a surgeon with Asberger Syndrome. I hope they make her a regular character, because she makes me smile.
Speaking of Battlestar… The last half of Season 4 starts January 16th, and a 13-minute recap video of everything so far is here. (They did a similar video between seasons 3 and 4).
I’ll be in Pasadena on the 16th attending the Battlestar Auction. I’m still figuring out a way to scrounge up the $60,000 that I’d need to start bidding on a Raptor, though. Other neat items include Baltar’s cigarette case ($300-500), Roslin’s Chamalla pills ($400-600), Roslin’s signature glasses ($400-600), Romo’s sunglasses ($600-800), Doc Cottle’s medical bag ($750-1000), the motherfrakin’ Arrow of Apollo ($2000-3000), Saul Tigh’s liquor bottle ($1000-2000), DRADIS displays ($2000-3000), a Cylon resurrection tub ($2500-3500) … pretty much anything you saw on the show is up for auction. The catalog is huge.
At these prices I don’t plan on placing any bids, but it’ll be neat to see everything up close…and maybe get some photos of Kate sitting in a Viper cockpit.
