I want my life back!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I have a confession to make, you guys. For the past couple of weeks, I've spent pretty much all my free time catching up on seasons 1 and 2 of Grey's Anatomy. I've been staying up late, neglecting to clean my house and was even late for work this morning because I tried squeezing an episode before I left.

This is all my boss's fault, so at least she couldn't get on my case for being late. I just started watching Grey's on and off this season and could take it or leave it. Then, my boss came in one day and asked if I'd seen the first two seasons. Told her no and she said, "You have to watch them." Turns out she'd been staying up late and getting caught up too.

I'm watching the clock now and may sneak out early, so I can get a few more episodes in before it comes on tonight. What is wrong me? I'm beyond addicted now. It's an obssession. I want my life back!

I hear ya..I am in the same boat..I am dagnerously addicted to Greys too...Does anyone know if its a new one tonight?
post #3 of 27
Yep, it is new tonight, despite what the TV GUIDE says. Yep, I'm another GREY'S ANATOMY addict.

At least there's only ONE show you're addicted to! For me it's Grey's, Next Top Model, 24, and Law & Order SVU. There's just not enough time in a day to feed these addictions!
(Hey, at least if you're late for work, you can blame it on your boss! )

Glad I'm not the only one.

My boss just came out of her office and said she was surprised I didn't run home on my lunch hour to squeeze in another episode.

I did that when I started watching Grey's near the end of Season 2...

Actually, I did that when I started watching The Office, I watched all the episodes over my Christmas vacation, lol... within like a week.

The only downside with that is that when you're caught up, you have to start actually waiting for new episodes, and that's hard to get used to!

Slowly step away from the TV and stop watching. It's OK to say no to Grey's!

My fiance and I are like that with The Sopranos. We borrowed seasons one thru three from J's sister, and we've been watching the episodes almost nonstop ever since. The other night, I swear I had a dream that I worked for Tony Soprano ... Apparently, (in my dreams, at least) he's a pretty decent boss.

Yes, another addict here. Our house is off limits for visits or phone calls on Thursday night.

It's really bad. I just realized I have to stop at the grocery on the way home today, which will delay watching Grey's by a least half and hour.

I'm curious about something. What is it about Grey's Anatomy that you all love so much. I tried watching it a couple of times and just couldn't stand it. I don't think that guy who plays that Doctor that everyone thinks is so cute is good looking at all, and that lady who plays the leading characater, (her real name is Pompeo or something like that) well, I think she's just plain. The only character on that show that found even remotely interesting is that female Doctor who is so grumpy with them all.

I honestly don't understand what the appeal is about this show, and I'd love to understand why so many people love it so much.

Now UGLY BETTY, well...that's a great show.

I've never watched the show Hope, but I agree with you on this...everytime I see pics of that guy gracing another magazine cover or on a who's who list of 'beautiful people'..I'm like I don't get it at all....

I watch it when its on, mind you its dubbed in german so its probably less entertaining as i find the translations pretty rotten. Its not something i would be addicted to!

Although if someone did send me a whole series id probably want to watch them all till its done°!

I'm the same way with Desperate Housewives. I own Seasons 1 and 2 and plan to keep adding them as they are released! I'm an addict!

I think the appeal is different to each person... it might just not be your style. I like it because the characters (to me) I've grown to really care about, plus I've always been a fan of medical shows, and it's a drama (almost soap opera ish) but with moments of humor. There is a large cast so there's at least one person to relate to... and if you don't like watching it for the drama in the character's lives, there are some pretty interesting medical cases that they have to deal with.

That's my take on it, anyway. Like I said, it might not be your taste - or maybe if you were able to sit and watch it from the beginning you might grow to like it. I know a lot of people think Meredith is annoying, I can totally see where she's coming from and so I like her. Oh and I personally think Patrick Dempsey is cute, but that's just me. :o)

Hello, my name is Heidi, and I'm a Grey's Anatomy addict.

I started watching it on the 2nd episode, and was pretty well immediately hooked.

Hope, I think one of the appeals is the characters. They all have their flaws, they all have their issues, but overall they are good people. There isn't any stereotypical character in the show. They are all intelligent, hard-working, caring people, who are all very different but brought together in this one hospital.

I have no idea what the attraction to "Grey's" is because I've never watched it. But I love Betty!

When I first heard about it I thought "how crude can you get making fun of a homely girl"! Then I found out I could watch it on line. I was hooked after the first episode. It only took me two Sundays to catch up.

Hopefully they won't beat it to death and they won't end up selling her out like they did in the show that it is based on.

If I did not have Tivo I would never have time to watch all my shows. I prefer to watch my shows when I want to watch them instead of when someone else decides I have to watch them. Plus watching 2 or 3 tv shows at the same time is not possible. We have 3 tivo's and they all get used. I have 15 tv shows that I watch regulrly. I record them and skip the commercials so it takes half the amount of time to watch my shows.

Honestly, Hope, this is a show I never thought I'd like and I didn't get the appeal either. I don't think Patrick Dempsey is all that hot and some of the medical cases can be a little farfetched. So, it really is the characters. Yeah, they can by whiney and selfish at times, but they're interesting and real and compassionate. There's drama, romance and humor in this show and it's really well written. It's made me laugh, cry and get angry all in one episode. That's the kind of show that I like to watch. I normally wouldn't spend so much time watching TV, but this has me hooked.

Heidi's actually half the reason why I got addicted. I remember when it first came out she was going on and on. Then one day in like March or April they had one of their recap episodes on and I happened to watch part of it... and then I was like, "oooh... now I get what she's been talking about."

So I blame YOU Heidi!

And on that note, a little bit over an hour til a new episode, woohoo!

I understand what you mean. I didn't watch much of the first season either but I caught up to it and now have never missed an episode. I'm really hooked on it too and I can't wait till 9pm to watch another new episode
