Lost vs. Grey's Anatomy

I've just recently become a fan of ABC's series, Lost. And when I say "fan" I mean we plan on announcing our engagement this fall. I've lost friends. I've lost time. Quite a fitting name, actually.

But has anyone noticed that there are a great many similarities between Lost and ABC's other hit series, Grey's Anatomy?

10. There is a surgeon named Dr. Shepherd. Armed with his not-so-subtle stubble he reluctantly leads his "flock" to...something.

vs.

9. Dr. Shepherd always seems to have trouble deciding between women.

8. There is a character named Dr. Burke. We're still not sure if Dr. Burke and Dr. Shepherd are friends.

vs.

7. There's a mean guy who nobody really likes, but women sleep with him anyway.

vs.

6. There's that one guy who has really low self esteem, but everyone still loves him. Except the mean guy who just loves to make fun of him.

vs.

5. Nobody wants to trust the redhead.

vs.

4. Those Koreans always know what they're doing.



vs.




3. If there are two somewhat attractive people within ten miles of each other, there will be sexual tension.
vs.

2. The best way to solve a problem is by fighting it out.



vs.



1. Nobody seems to have a clue what's going on.



vs.




I mean, come on ABC, they're consecutively at 9 o'clock and 10 o'clock. Try a bit harder...

I think you could write a thesis on this comparison.

This blog is horrible, Derek was in no way ever attracted to Lexi and the end comparisons are pretty vague and any vague similarity can be pointed out in any show.

Wow! Thanks so much for reading my blog, Jessie! Especially considering I haven't touched in almost 4 years and this post was written in 2008. Perhaps you'll like my post entitled, "Mr. Goomz" better. It's pretty awesome.
