Could not agree more. None of the characters interest me anymore especially the couples and since everyone has to be sleeping with someone now that is pretty much everyone. MerDer I do like, but they dont have any stories thrown there way. I like Bailey and the Chief still. Jackson is good he should become a regular. Past that everyone else annoys me. The writing has gotten bad on this show. Never thought I would say it, but it has.
The only stories this show writes is couples drama now, and that has been done on every show ever, and it was done better on a lot of them. The best episodes this season had nothing to do with the couples. Chiefs drinking story arc with Derek was all good especially the chiefs speech episode.The episode were the first mercy west resident gets fired nothing to do with relationships. Also the new episodes with the Mercy West cast were good. Those were the best episodes and story arcs this season past that none of the episodes were greatly interesting. They need to focus more on the career and medical drama of the show and how they get threw that not how they get threw their love relationships.
Yeah maybe showing more of the career side and about 5% of the relationship side would be the way to go now. They can't seem to write good on the relationship stuff anymore and I hate most of the couples anyway.
I think giving another good sl to Merder where they work together would be a good idea because I really liked that in S4/5 when they had the trial going.They could also do something with Cristinain that departmentbut her problem? she always lets the guy get in the way. Another reason not to root for her and Owen. They refuse to do anything personal with Alex so well why not focus more on his career then? he's good with babies lol.
Problem is could this get boring? if they focus too much on medica/career side I'm afraid I might lose interest just as much as I am now. The only way this would work in their favor would be to focus on the main couple and that is MerDer. They'd keep me around! Give them a major story! Alexand Cristina without Owen. They tried Mark and failed. Honestly I don't know what to do with the rest just keep them in the 5% lol
