Remember when TV used to be good.......


I caught my first episode of "Grey's Anatomy" last night. Good show!! I am already a devoted fan of "LOST" as well as "Invasion", but had never seen "Grey's Anatomy" before. It makes me long to the good ol' days, when TV used to be good. Do you remember the times before so called reality TV, when smart, creative people produced sometimes brilliant, sometimes not-so-brilliant scripted TV? I miss those days.

When the first season of "Survivor" was on, of course, I watched it. It was new, innovative, even thrilling at times. Fast forward about 2 years and the airwaves are filled with more "reality" BS than you can shake a stick at. It seems the networks, in all their wisdom (cue sarcasm) took what was at one time a good idea and beat it to death. The next thing you know you are watching "The Littlest Groom" or "Wife Swap" and wondering why you even bothered to turn on the TV. I hope the networks will soon pull their proverbial heads out of their proverbial a$$es and start producing creative, inventive shows again. Maybe that should be be my Christmas wish this year.

In other news, today is my first day back at work after handing in my 2 week notice last Friday. So far so good. A couple of the nicer people I have worked with have come by to say they are sorry to hear I am leaving but they wish me luck in school. Most are having a hard time understanding what radiography is, but I try to explain it the best I can. The Director of the museum even came by to wish me good luck, which surprised me because I always thought he didn't much like me . Maybe he just felt obligated to come and say something. One staff member even told she thought it was a good idea to get out of here and she thought I would probably earn more money doing something, anything else. I certainly didn't argue with her on that point.

Lee,

Sorry to hear you have to wait so long for the second season. Well, you are in for a treat, it is (so far) as good or better than the first. At least in my opinion. You learn a lot more about the characters' backgrounds and some new people are added....oops, did I say too much. Anyway, hang in there and you'll be spending time with Jack, Kate and Sayid again soon.

TV? What's that?.. says Student Nurse...haha

I still watch TV (and I LOVE Grey's Anatomy) but I tend to have to record my very most fav few shows and treat myself to them on Friday nights. (read: I am the pillar of excitement!! ...and I wonder why I am still single...LOL)

BTW-I can't recall are you planning on working? or is the program too intense for that luxury. :o)
