According to CNN, Isaiah Washington, who has recently been voted off Grey’s Anatomy, will be joining the cast of my favorite new drama of the year that I have never seen, the Bionic Woman. He will be in a five episode arc as the “mysterious man who always says unfortunate things at the wrong time, like when he is on live national TV.” I was ambivalent about him being fired from Grey’s. Is it an example of an employer being responsible? (I mean, if I said what he said at a meeting, I would get ^$%# canned!) Or is it an example of a network bowing to unhinged public opinion after much ado is made about something? Now, we have to debate whether someone who has said a right naughty word in a public setting deserves to have a second (third) chance. Thoughts?
More importantly, how is this going to affect my favorite new midseason replacement of the Fall 2005 season? I feel like Shonda needed Burke in at least one episode to have closure on the Christina/Burke tragedy. I mean, wouldn’t it have been great to see Sandra Oh acting when she first sees Burke? I am still bugging out over her last scene in the finale. Was she relieved? Destroyed? Both? I sure am loving the summer, but I smell Fall Previews in the air and I like it!
