Anna Loomis: When you spend your life with someone and you have kids together, you think it'll always be this amazing, and this wonderful. You think that you'll always feel that kind of love and I do, I do love Phil. I just... well little pieces of you get chipped away by another person and then you shave little pieces of yourself away so you'll fit together and then one day you look up and you don't even know who you are.

Anatomy casting
27 September 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I think special kudos should go to the excellent casting on this season's opener: Bernadette Peters, Kathy Bates and Mariette Hartley?? OMG, what a powerhouse trio! And Cliff DeYoung and John Getz were right there with them, too.

And Kevin McKidd was (would be?) a great addition. Perhaps like Noah Wiley (you now, the one on that other show about doctors), Sandra Oh will decide to take a sabbatical in some war-torn country...

OTOH, the regulars are, well ... just that. It's like Shonda Rhimes said, 'Okay, you're all coming back this year but we really don't want you to do or be anything different -- just be more of what you were before.

I swear, if I have to listen to Ellen Pompeo kvetch any more I'm going to scream! Or worse, stop watching. Considering the show's named after her character (and granting how much harder it is to write a protagonist than an antagonist), IMO she's the weakest link.

The others...eh. Karev started off well, then became über-surly as usual; Izzie is still doe-eyed, only more so; George is still ... George, and Lexie was-- Well, you get the idea. The writers took the standard personalities and added a couple zeroes on the end, but there were no surprises or character revelations. Ho-hum.
