    Onto the smaller things of life.
    After the Super Bowl this year, I fell into the hype of the special Grey's Anatomy episode. This is not a show I typically watch. But it looked interesting, with the whole bomb in the guy's chest, and Christina Ricci and all. So I watch it. Both episodes for that story line. I didn't really have the time or inclination to continue, though, and didn't watch any more all year. Although every time I saw commercials for it, I had a slight pang of "oh, I think I want to watch that show!" [in no small part b/c I find Dr. Burke EXCEEDINGLY attractive.]

    Now it's the summer, and my kids are gone. I have an amazing library, from which I can get whatever I want. I right now have sitting on top of my television, Season One of Grey's Anatomy. I watched, thus far, the first 7 (out of 9) episodes, and I am hooked.

    I am confused, though. B/c where I am now, Meredith and McDreamy are sleeping together, but yet, after the Superbowl, he was married to another. So what I do not know is whether 1) he is married right now, while sleeping with Meredith, but his wife hasn't joined him Seattle yet, and he's an asshole; or 2) he and Meredith break up, and instantly finds and marries another. Life - whiplash speed.

    I wouldn't mind if someone would let me know in the comments which is the case. I can't watch the first episodes of Season 2 until it comes out on DVD on September 12th, and I *will* be watching Season 3 as it airs this year (especially since I'm only taking 12 credits and since it's on at 10, which is late enough to not eat into my time with the kids). I really feel that I NEED this piece of information.

    I conceded to Beloved on our walk home from the coffee shop this a.m. that I am jumping onto a bandwagon by picking up Grey's Anatomy. I know that it's intensley popular, especially iwth the ladies (although Beloved seems to enjoy it as well).

    But I still refuse to jump onto the American Idol bandwagon. No No No. i will NOT allow reality (pshaw) television shows to rule my life and I will continue to proudly say "I have never seen that show" when people ask me "who I want to win." NO!!!

      You find out as part of the last episode cliffhanger. So as not to ruin anything for you. Just take the first episode at face value. He seems available, wanting a commitment and not wearing a ring.

      I can't tell you more. it would take all the fun right out of it!

      You sure you want the spoiler? If so, here it is...

      It's scenario #1, sort of. McDreamy is married, but he left his wife back in NYC because he caught her in bed with his best friend. That's why he flew the coop for Seattle. The wife follows him to Seattle to save the marriage and starts working at the hospital (as it can only happen in TV land). There's a lot of tumult and turmoil, and McDreamy decides that he can't at least give the wife (also a doctor) a chance. So he officially chooses his wife over Meredith, although it's clear to all where his heart lies. That leaves Meredith stuck working in the hospital with her former lover and his wife as her superiors. It also makes it very difficult for her to move on and find other romances with McDreamy practically mooning over her... but she tries.

      And screws up a bunch of things.

      And then he and Meredith fool around at the end of season 2, leaving us all wondering WTF.

      How's that? Need more detail?

      Yeah, I saw it this afternoon. I guess I knew it was coming, since I knew his wife was at the hospital in that first episode I ever saw.

      It was close enough to scenario #1 that I think he's a loser.

      I don't know why he gets the McDreamy title with Dr. Burke in the same hallways. Geez.
