The moment we admit we toke up, there are a whole slew of assumptions and images based on stereotypes. If we call ourselves potheads, then the term loses power and legitimacy.
I mentioned last week that I feel some nostalgia for "Grey's" of yore, and even one of you mentioned some "throwback" moments in the comments. This episode was full of them.
Do we belong on the endangered species list, along with the Asian elephant, blue whale, common chimpanzee, giant panda, Japanese crane, snow leopard, wild water buffalo, Bactrian camel, California condor, mountain gorilla, red wolf, southern bluefin tuna, and many others?
Collins' influence stretches beyond the festive hand tossing of Tinseltown glitter, however. Her charitable outreach -- from The National Center for Learning Disabilities to the prevention of child cruelty in the UK -- stand out.
Yang is nominated for a Harper Avery and is adorably trying to pretend like she has better things to do. Which, technically, she does. The heart family from last week has settled in and made themselves at home.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with television producer and director Randall Winston, who spoke about his recently shot Rob Lowe pilot, Lupus, and being openly gay in Hollywood.
What began as an interview with literary agents Jeff Kleinman, Founding Partner, and Michelle Brower, Senior Vice President, of Folio Literary Management turned into enough material for a three part Q&A series on what agents really want from authors.
Cristina has to stow away for her trial patients to do a heart transplant on a girl, so Shane is tasked with keeping the kids safe from the outbreak. Bad news? The girls sister has heart disease, too, so now the family is just stuck at the hospital, with Yang and Owen trying to crack the case.
This episode was perfect. Not only is it just a gorgeous example of how "Grey's" tells stories so well, or loves its characters, but it's the perfect beginning of the end for Cristina Yang.
Meredith finally takes some ownership over the printer and the engineer they hire to work it -- but this storyline is about at one dimensional as can be. Even the flirtation between Stephanie and the bow-tied kid was snoozy.
The choices aren't always forthcoming. But here is a woman who made it possible, whose responsibilities , whatever they are, will clearly all be met and taken care of if she decides to find out something else about herself.
We spent a day on the set chatting to the cast and getting to the bottom of what makes it magic.
Suffice it to say that it was one of the most offensive and most poorly written storylines in the history of GH -- one that rewrote much of the show's history with reckless abandon.
While you can look at the popular ABC series, The Bachelor, as pop culture entertainment, it can also, surprisingly, provide some real life lessons.
This was sort of a filler episode, wrapping up all of the unresolved issues from the mid-season premiere. Best moment? Weber yelling at Yang: "I am, and will always be the Chief!" Touché, sir.
