Why can't writers leave the sharks alone - enough of the sharks
8 March 2009 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Okay, Grey's has finally 'jumped the shark' - the idea of Denny and Izzie is preposterous - this is just the most stupid storyline. I know they wanted to get rid of Hahn because of small minded viewers, who's myopia really has no place in determining what the rest of us can enjoy. I was happy that Izzie and Alex seemed to finally find their groove. I also wish they would stop trying to amp up Lexie Grey - Chyler Leigh, is a wonderful actress, but she is not believable at the moment, she's gone from being a sweet girl who gave me hope, to being an absolute rebel - she can't pull it off. And please don't get me started on Melissa George - I couldn't stand her in Alias, and now she's even more irritating - she shouldn't play bad characters - another one who's unbelievable, it's a shame cause normally she's a good actress.
