Meredith Grey - Love Her or Hate Her? I Love Her.
I've recently noticed that a lot of my friends (including some junkettes) and television critics have expressed dislike for Meredith Grey's character (and perhaps even Ellen Pompeo, the actress who plays her).
Well, I LOVE HER. I think she is an interesting, loveable, and complex character, and I think Pompeo is perfect for the role. (She could gain 10 lbs and still be extremely too skinny, but that's another blog.) Meredith is going through a shitty time. Her mom has Alzheimer's, her McDreamy is married to like the best OGBYN in history who also happens to be really hot, and she hasn't spoken to her Dad since she was a child and he is now coming back into her life. Oh yeah, and she made a bad decision to sleep with George and cry midway through. And alienate herself from her friends. But she feels REALLY BAD. And she realizes her own limitations and weaknesses and as George said during last week's episode, she is KIND.
I'll even go so far to say that she is my favorite character on the show. So there.
