frontpagewoman hi! (and can you remind me of your former user name?)
I don’t exactly know what I’m supposed to explain or how much I should say. But essentially, I watched Greys from day one and watched up until the s10 finale. I decided not to watch s11 because Sandra Oh left and without her there’s no Cristina, my second fav character. And without Cristina, there’s no Mertina (Meredith/Cristina) relationship, which was the ONLY relationship keeping me there (their relationship, despite platonic, was really the heart of the show). But, just because I watched for 10 seasons, doesn’t mean I enjoyed all of it. Grey’s saw a noticeable decline in quality in s3 (so did Private Practice and Scandal, tho Scandal’s occurred a bit earlier in s2b). Like…Shonda is still rightfully dragged over s5 of Greys because of that ghost sex fuck shit. Like…the show is so damn awful and REPETITIVE (just like Scandal tbh). But I was so used to it and just watched out of habit.
I’ve seen every ep of Private Practice and watched from day one til the end (which was a struggle because the show got supremely bad in the last few seasons. There were 6 in total, but the last season was just 13 episodes).
I never watched Off the Map because it looked stupid as well as being just a recreation of Grey’s Anatomy but in the jungle.
I watched Scandal from day 1 up until 3.18. I know enough of what is going on with the show because of tumblr (I have some character names on TS but I didn’t block out Scandal or Olitz since some people have that in their screen names). And honestly, I’ve VERY happy that I decided to quit this show. It’s legit trash. And, I honestly no longer root for Olitz — like, not even a little bit. And I don’t want anyone to say that Shonda succeeded. No, it has nothing to do with Shonda because I have sense enough to know her ploys (and remember I was an avid Grey’s watcher and Olitz is nothing more than a Mer/Der re-tread). It’s because I feel that Olivia, in her refusal to do positive things to fix herself despite knowing that she is fucked up (remember she outlined that she knew exactly why she had issues in s3) she does the same fuckshit over and over and now she’s compiling that nonsense and emotional instability and self esteem issues with THOT behavior. There’s nothing rootable about that. Then you have Fitz who seems like he will forever remain a simp and there is nothing sexy about a simp ass man. So, no more Olitiz for me (which is why it’s dfficult for me to get back into my AU fanfic. Even though it’s AU, it’s still them and they honestly disgust me).
No, I have not watched HTGAWM and have no plans to do so. Honestly, it seems like Scandal with law students and no WH, so meh. Additionally, I think people are getting swept up in the fact of loving Viola that they are ignoring some of the problems I’ve seen pointed out in many places (too many story lines, gratuitous sex scenes that, per Nowalk, are MEANT to push boundaries — which is dumb because the integrity of the story should be first priority). Also, I don’t think the premise is sustainable and I’m not setting myself for further fuckery in the future.
Hope this answers the quesstion! If I didn’t, let me know.
Lol, dying @THOT behaviour and you’re right about the sex on HTGAWM, they are going to lose a lot of viewers due to the sex scenes.
