June 19, 2007: Season 3 — Episode 3

I feel like I just went to the funeral of one of my own family members. I knew this wasn't going to be an easy one to watch since Bravo sent out a press release last week announcing that this episode was dedicated to Kathy's father, John Griffin. As I've expressed in my Grey's Anatomy blog multiple times, I'm a crier. But crying while watching George deal with his dad dying on Grey's is one thing — Grey's is a fictional show. Watching Kathy deal with the death of her father was just devastating. However, she did it with such dignity and gave an absolutely beautiful tribute to him towards the end. You could tell Kathy inherited her father's sense of humor: "He truly passed his sense of humor down to me. That's what I'm gonna miss the most."When Kathy heard the news from her sister Joyce that their dad had passed, and Kathy had to get on a plane to L.A., it really hit home for me, especially when Kathy referred to it as "that moment I have been dreading my whole life." I say it h... read more

I know you've grown as tired ...

Question: I know you've grown as tired and suspicious of the "reality" genre as I have, but I need your opinion on last week's episode of Work Out. When I first saw the preview, I said, "No way am I watching this." But last week I was at home sick, so I tuned in. Just how stupid do these producers think we are? The entire episode was so obviously plotted out. Jackie goes away and puts her uptight assistant in charge of the gym as her newest trainer house-sits. She demands her assistant keep the gym neat and clean. She's gone for 10 minutes and the gym looks like a tornado whipped through, then a trainer's dog poops on the mats? She demands that nobody else be allowed over to her house and that the dogs not be let out. The gang crashes Jackie's house for an "impromptu" party like a scene from a bad '80s teen movie; they break a vase and mess up the bed, and the idiot doesn't even straighten up the mess? Plus the dogs get out? And don't get me started on Jackie's "flirtation" with the ... read more
