I decided to do a little post about yesterdays shows Grey’s Anatomy and Nikita.
Grey’s Anatomy had an interesting twist this week – they made it look like a documentary and kicked us to the curb by telling us that Arizona and Torres are going to Africa! Some Internet digging and looking up news about the two characters and actors it is safe to say that this was just written in because Jessica Capshaw who portrays Arizona just had her second child, congrats! And since they didn’t want to sabotage their relationship they gave Sara Ramirez a small brake too. They’ll be back but for two episodes (as I heard) they could concentrate on other relationships on the show. there was also the return of the Mandy Moore character who didn’t survive – which was sad. Yang is still not a doctor, which makes me really mad but it has made Yang seem more human. That said, it needs to stop soon – something would have to happen again in order to make Yang Yang again! But the best part of Grey’s last episode for me was Karev. I like him and I have liked him in good and bad. But this episode showed a side of Karev that we have only seen a glimpse of, now they kind of hit us with it – he cares, he cares about the kids even though he says he doesn’t and with Arizona leaving I think he will be getting more time with the kids or will there be a doctor filling in Arizona for two episodes? I can’t wait!
Now on with Nikita, I think this show has a lot of potential but because I haven’t really been a big Nikita fan before – people who usually obsess about the movie don’t enjoy the TV-shows. People do those things a lot, like something and then hate the remakes and so on – I think it is stupid to look at things that clearly are so apart from eachother as something connected. Anyway, Nikita as a show has a lot of interesting stories that they keep bringing on the table and not ending them. Last two weeks it was Owen who was the new guy but he went on to do his own thing – story-line stays open. Robbie (Bug Hall) is dead for others but is actually trained to be a cleaner – this weeks episode also kept its episode story-line open. It is only a matter of time when they will have so many open stories that they are starting to overwhelm me – and I like it! They can do what ever they want, they can play around with so many things and I’m kind of excited to see what happens during this season. I bet they get a second season also, even third if they can hold the tention up. The only thing I hope is that Alex and Thom get an episode all about them, or we could se Thoms past! See, this show can go everywhere with the characters because what do we really know about them? By now we know Alex the most because a lot of her past has been already told but everybody else is a big old questionmark. It reminds so much of Dollhouse which was actually cancelled after the second season (which I didn’t enjoy as much as the first because it fell apart a bit) but the first season was good. And it had the same thing, the mystery about almost every character they had – so many questions can be asked and Nikita seems to answer them in the slowest speed possible meanwhile blowing things up and killing bad guys. PS: Don’t you enjoy the fact that Shane West is the bad guy in the makings of a good guy! My favorite characters are always like that – Damon (The Vampire Diaries), Eric (True Blood), Nathan (One Tree Hill)… All bad guys at first but all better guys than the ones who are good in the beginning! I rest my case!0
