Grey's Anatomy Overload?

I've spent the last 4 days watching seasons 2, 3, and 4 of Grey's Anatomy pretty much non-stop. And several things have occurred to me.
  1. There is not a single healthy romantic relationship portrayed.
    • Izzie and Denny were going ok, but he died (Season 2).
    • Christina and Burke were doing well, but that fell apart at the wedding (end of Season 3, but to give the writers a little bit of credit, they had to write Burke out of the script when he was fired for making derogatory remarks against homosexuals, which the actor who plays George is).
    • Meredith and McDreamy are obviously one of the most messed up relationships in the history of television, and even though they do have (one) good patch(es) (in Season 3), that, of course, didn't last.
    • Although Bailey and her husband's relationship does not feature extensively, even that falls apart in season 4.
    • Meredith's fake mother dies in season 3, effectively ruining ONE seemingly healthy marriage and Meredith's one opportunity to have a healthy parental relationship.
    • Of course, Callie and George's marriage doesn't work out.
    • Flings are flung extensively throughout the script, none of which work out.
    • Other relationships which don't work are the Chief and his wife, George's parents (his father dies), Meredith's parents (obviously), and even several patients' relationships.

  2. I REALLY like Miranda Bailey.
  3. Meredith's sister is really stupid and annoying, but gets slightly better towards the end of season 4.
  4. They messed up and put a different actress in as the Chief's niece in season 4 than season 3.
  5. Season 2 and 3 are the best. The start of season 4 kind of hits a slump, but get better.
  6. The doctors are pretty much eye candy. Kerev and Sloan in particular.
  7. I don't think I'll watch Grey's Anatomy like that again.
