Friday Favourites: Goodbye Grey’s

Happy Friday all. Today I part ways with Grey’s Anatomy. That’s right folks after 8 years together, we are breaking up. I have been a loyal Grey’s watcher for the longest time. I remember for Christmas one year we got the box set for season 1 and 2. The Husband and I plowed through both seasons so fast we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the next one.

I tuned in to the premiere of season 9 a couple weeks back. I was so disappointed. All of my favourite cast are gone. Everyone is leaving the show; either dying or just plain leaving. Too many new characters and storylines are starting up, ones that I have no interest in following.

I’ve always loved the emotional impact of this show. I have cried over so many episodes. I am going to miss Christina. She’s awesome. I’ve missed Izzie for so long. Let’s be real, I really long for the original cast to get back together.

Sadly Grey’s, it’s time. You can only re-invent hospital storylines so many times before they become repetitive. I can’t believe the show is still on the air.

Honestly, I think it’s best sometimes when TV shows call it quits well before their expiration date. All too often, they hang in, season after season, way too long and rather than ending on a good note or high, they fall short.

This is what has happened to Grey’s for me. What about you? Are you still watching?

Enjoy the weekend!

Simply Yours,

I’ve heard Parenthood is awesome. That’s on my future watch-list. I can’t say enough amazing things about Homeland. Check it out. Also, I’ve been loving Friday Night Lights. Five seasons in the can. You don’t have to like football, either. Great to rent the season and episode off :)
