I think I want to beat Shonda Rhimes with a stick
Warning: Spoilers for Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy.
I just finished watching this week's Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy.
And I'm scratching my head and thinking what kind of deep, dark past does their creator, Shonda Rhimes, harbor that makes her so full of hate of healthy, mutually beneficial relationships???
I mean, seriously, it finally looks like she is going to bring Sam and Naomi back together, and, without warning, these two people, who CLEARLY have a satisfying sex life together ,who are able to WORK TOGETHER and raise a daughter together, but, WTF?? They have to LET GO so they can find some kind of elusive happiness in a world where the continue to work together and raise a daughter together, but, being a couple is not doable?
Newsflash to Sam and Naomi (and Shonda): if you are able to work together and raise a child together AND have mind-blowing orgasms together - YOU SHOULD BE TOGETHER. You have so much more going for your relationship than the average bear.
So 'splain to me why these people need to "let go" of each other?
Yeah, they don't. Because life is short and often cruel, and if you have somebody by your side who meets the above criteria? Who can be your lover and your friend and your co-worker and your co-parent? IT DOESN'T GET MUCH FRAPPING BETTER THAN THAT. So, hold on to that person and be eachother' s calm in the storm, because, in the end, that person who stood by your side is the one of the few things in life that really mattered.
Oy, the old man with the "Rosie don't leave me" - did Shonda set out to BREAK MY HEART this week, or was that, just, a little bonus?
And Callie and Erica? I will admit that I don't buy them as a couple, but, the actress who plays Erica Hahn knocked that whole "you are glasses" monologue OUT OF THE PARK last week, and what does she get for her trouble?
Riddle me that one, batman.
Again comes Shonda, hater of the burgeoning mutually beneficial and emotional mature relationship. Wielding her relationship killing sword of destruction.
I give up.
I'm going to bed.
