Speaking of Golden Globe nominations, how happy was I that Grey's
was nominated for best drama series, along with Patrick Dempsey
for best actor and Sandra Oh
for best supporting actress? Here's hoping more of the cast get noticed for future awards, especially my favorite, T.R. Knight
. This repeat of the season premiere reminded me why George is my favorite character. I loved that Webber asked George to be the mole, or in this case the "sponge," and it was very cool for George to use his sponge status to help get Joe the insuranceless bartender's expensive surgery financed. I remember how glued to the TV I was the first time I watched this, wanting to find out more about Addison. It was also the first time Meredith found out about Cristina sleeping with Burke, so it was great to relive those early Cristina-Burke moments, along with seeing Alex and Izzie when all they did was play the flirt-and-ignore game. One line I missed the first time was Meredith saying "my ex-boyfriend's wife looks like Isabella
and I'm like me." Of course, George had to tell Meredith "you look nice" twice. And, of course, I cried again when Alex hugged George at the end. What can I say? I'm a sap.
