Yes, it looks like we may have to watch PrP too. ¬¬


Geewahhhhhhhhh, How can the crackpots with crayons let the dialogue of "I walked away" come out of Addison's mouth. She walked away from SGH - she left her marriage because she finally realised it was OVER. It was over from the time she had the affair with Mark if she had not been so blinkered and played on the good guy complex she knew her former husband had to delay the inevitable. The reason that part is so confusing for some many people was because sr fell in luv with the character Addison and (yes, so did the fans with McWitch) but she was only supposed to be in the series for a 4 epi arc and then go back to New York but because sr fell in luv, Addison stayed and some serious rewriting and changes to storylines had to happen to cope. sr was terrified of putting Mere and Derek together because 1. she is unable to write that (which she has proved time and time again) and 2. she was worried that the Moonlighting hoodoo would strike (which I totally disagree with).
Addison left her marriage because she knew she could not compete with Meredith. She came back to SGH last season to push Meredith to not lose Derek because she knows they are meant to be together and suddenly she is surprised at a proposal. I can understand the ring bit - it is a bit of a slap in the face but not the proposal. She can be angry and disappointed that her marriage failed but she has to take her large portion of the blame for that. She can be envious of Meredith and Derek but she should not be shocked. That is just poor characterisation and consistency in writing. Sack sr for goodness sake and save the TV show before she alienates the fans even more. I feel sure the Addison fans would agree - it must be just as frustrating for them to see their character treated like a yo-yo of stupidity. :x

I think we should wait and see the episode before getting mad at SR again. I think the promos are edited to sound like a MerDer and Addison love triangle where Addison wants Derek back. She is just surprised they are getting engaged and probably feels sad because she let her marriage go when she cheated on Derek. Also she is all alone so she feels worse at the happy news. Now I can't see Alex talking to her about Meredith and Derek and her. I know he cares about Addison a lot and I really wanted them to have something but Alex doesn't get involved like that with other peoples issues so I can't see them talking about this, plus he is Mere's friend.

Addison was seeing a cop but they broke up after she had kissed a doctor from the rival practice and decided she wanted him instead (Sound like Addi much) :hmm: :hmm: .Only to turn up at his office to find him gone and her brother & BFF having sex .Karmas a bitch innit .

Naiomi was not in Alias.

Naiomi was married to Sam but he divorced her (mid-life crisis?) .He recently started seeing somebody but started having asthma/panic attacks when trying to "seal the deal " .Naiomi took him to see the alternative therapist(weirdly they are talking about each others sex lives) who treated him and it looked to have worked cos he ended the epi2-14 in bed with his girlfriend.
Naiomi has been sleeping with Archer which Addi got on her high horse about with both of them .

Archer descibes himself as a "good time guy" .So he's the Sloan of PrP

Leli,

the actress who played Naomi is the pilot of PrP was in Alias (indeed the friend of Sydney) but they didn't keep the initial actress ... so the current Naomi was not in Alias

Hey sister thread ladies! <3

I ha to come on here and say that I agree, they seem to be setting up for Meredith thinking that Derek's rethinking Addison. (The petal, the 'almost kiss', him acting weird, etc) and I'm not happy about it. Seriously, is it IMPOSSIBLE to write a couple together and HAPPY? Or is it just impossible to write Mer/Der happy?

The fact that Yunt got not one but TWO of those melodramatic piano scenes last ep just proves to me that Mer/Der are background character on this show, even if her name is the title.

I used to think I was the most optimistic GA fan on the planet, but I'm slowly breaking down and getting fed up with it. I'm getting to the point where I'd rather have no show than a butchered one. That's not good. :(

oh,thanks for that Em...I was confused because she did look pretty much like Sydney's friend (don't remember her exact name - Alice or sth ??? :hmm: )
