Is "Grey’s Anatomy" the new "Friends?"

I see some similarities in the tv shows “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Friends.”

1 – You have the couples that everyone wants so badly to get together – meet Derek and Meredith and Ross and Rachel.

2 – You have the other couples – meet Erica and Callie and Susan and Carol.

3 – There is always something preventing the main couple from getting together and staying together.

4 – You have a group of friends that are basically like family – meet Ross, Chandler, Joey, Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe and then Derek, Meredith, Mark (Sloan), George, Christina, Izzie, Alex, Lexie, Bailey, Callie, Erica, and the Chief

There are some funny parts and some parts that have made me cry, but I REALLY hope there are no more of the scenes like there were in the season finale (you know what I’m talking about – the kissing scenes). If there are, I might have to totally give up Grey’s Anatomy all together! I mean, on public television? Where kids can see it anywhere? I don’t even like to watch it! Please ABC, no more of those scenes!

**If you miss Addison, you can see her in “Private Practice” – also on ABC.

    I can’t stand Grey’s Anatomy, I tried watching it but I couldn’t stand how lightly they took sex. It does remind me a lot of friends in that way.

    I agree, there are a lot of similarities. I do think that Grey’s is a little better…but that could be because television has evolved since Friends was on. And I could DEFINETLY go w/out that kissing scene again. On the other hand, I loved what Meredith did at the end of the season finale for Derek. So adorable, romantic and thoughtful! πŸ™‚
