lol giant television post

My mom is watching "Mercy", and when Lead Doctor Chick promptly started gettin' it on with Random Doctor Guy while they were walking down the hallway, I posed the question "so... what makes this different from Grey's Anatomy?" and got no real response. I take this to mean there is none. Oh, hospital shows. Can there ever be too many of you? I suspect the answer is yes. Plus whenever I see a hospital show I have an instinctive "Scrubs did it better" reaction. SORRY MERCY, I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU...

Anyway I just remembered that back when Frances and I were at her ~country house~ we re-watched The Idiot's Lantern and got into an academic debate over which is more pathetic, Fear Her or The Idiot's Lantern, taking into account the fact that they both have awful plots but lots of shippy moments. So I bring this to you. Collapse )

Having established that:

Which episode is worse?

The Idiot's Lantern
Fear Her
