Ok so since I have only seen GA seasons 5&6, I have decided to go back and start at the begining.

After wacthing only 5&6 I pretty much decided I liked all characters, well except maybe the couple that died in the finale(I won't name name's dont wanna spoil it for people who have yet to see) anyway to my actual point... I'm on episode 1 of season 2 and I've came to the conclusion that I REALLY dislike George he is soooo annoying please please please tell me he isn't like this all the way through?? PLEASE!!

What's the general opinion on the other characters, who do we like and dislike??

It really depends on the person. I suppose George is quite popular with some people. I was pretty indifferent to his character. I mean, he had a good heart, but the whole stuttering/dorky persona got a little tired after a few seasons. Before Arizona, I liked Callie and Cristina the most and Bailey to a certain extent. Aside from them, I find the other characters okay and mostly watch for their interaction each other and dialogue rather than for specific characters. I really didn't become obsessed with Grey's until Arizona showed up.

I, personally, liked the "Nazi", a.k.a Bailey. I thought she kicked butt... Then, there's Cristina and Callie, although, Callie really had an awful time with the "fab five" interns when she was already a resident then. Angry

I'm pretty much in the same boat as Meg, didn't have a GA obsession prior to Arizona.  But it was on my list of 'don't miss, don't wait till it's on NZ telly' shows.  Probably as I'm a recovering soap addict and it fulfilled my need for soapy relationship drama in a medical setting without having to resort to watching Shortland Street http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortland_Street (although it didn't work, I've succumbed to Shortie again)

I've never liked Derek, probably because I didn't like Meredith either until the recent couple of seasons.  And could never figure our why anyone would pick Meredith over Addison. 

Bailey and Cristina have always been favourites though - their bleaker, sarcastic humour works for me.  And I like that Bailey tries to keep out of everyones personal life.

But it's always worked as an ensemble cast - I can't imagine it without any of the characters.  I was always fond of George, although he could be a big dork and a bit irritating.

Uhm, because Addison cheated on him with his best friend Mark? :Smiley

But, if that hadn't been the case, I would've asked the same question too. Well, Meredith from the earlier seasons was really dark and emotional... But she has gotten better... I like her now than I did before, that's for sure...

yes, well, I suppose you are right on that one Wink  But I couldn't hold it against Addison, since Derek was so boring.

Well, but Derek is still better looking than Mark Sloan... One glance and the word "porn star" comes to mind... :Smiley Probably the whole gruff look he's sporting. Tongue

I would've said what Cristina said, "I hope it (the baby) has his hair." and Meredith replying, "Me too. Me too."

Side note: I think Sue Sylvester would have more problems with Derek's hair than Will Schuester's hair. Grin Just sayin' :Smiley

Speaking of Addison, I really miss her on Grey's. She really brought that intangible to the show. How wonderful it would be if we could have Callie, Arizona, AND Addison on the same show (crossovers don't count).

And I agree with you, AJ. Mer didn't grow on me until she turned somewhat "happy" in season 5. And I'm also drawn to the sardonic humor of Cristina and Bailey.

yeah, I miss Addison on GA.  The character isn't the same on Private Practice, although I haven't watched it for a while.

I think Callie, Arizona, Addison and Bailey would make a great team.  I think in some ways they were trying to fit Teddy in to the Addison mold. 

Teddy is a character I'm not quite sure about - she could be a great addition, it's just unfortunate that she was bought in as a plot device to add conflict between Owen and Cristina.  I have found myself liking her a lot more in the last few episodes.  I would have liked Shonda to give her a storyline away from the 'triangle'...and something more than 'Teddy sleeps with Mark'.

I agree. I think that would've been some massively awesome tag-team action going there.

I hope so too. I can't help but like Kim Raver ever since Third Watch, so, I really hope that Shonda would add more substance to her character too, away from those two storylines they've already played this past season.

I like Cristina she is so funny but I don't like her with Owen. Owen after this season I don't like him at all. The other one I don't like is Teddy but if she goes in the background that will work for me a lot. April still don't like her. I like Baily and the chief also Avery. Cristina also have good facial expressions when the chief stole the surgery from Owen I like her in that episode and the chief. I miss Addison too also I miss Dr. Dixon she was funny. I like Izzy but not much. And Alex is not one of my favorite. I like Lexi too. I don't like George. All this time he was in love in Mer and she didn't notice, then Lexi was in love and he didn't notice, George and Izzy didn't work for me. As Mark I have to ask what  Lexi, Izzy and Callie saw in him? Mystery.
Also this season I have to admit I have some problems with the writers because when they have ideas they never follow them trough example is the merger thing it was a good idea introduce new characters but not that many at once all the Teddy thing most people hate her because she is every where in the episodes they lost KH but KR can't suddenly become one of the main characters they should of introduce her and take it slowly so people can get know her and if she was in the background wouldn't be that annoying most of the time. I don't hate Teddy but this was turn into Altman's Anatomy this woman was everywhere she could possibly be.I hope they learn a lesson and when next season starts with everything from scratch and fresh things are going to be different.This triangle oh boy C/O/T took most of the season and its still unsolved its not working they can't see that what they see.
S4 finale didn't also work for me.That was boring finale. I didn't like Erika too.
Addison and Callie lunch scene(S4 ep. 13) when they were talking about Erika that was hilarious and Addison facial expressions bring up nice memories.At least they can have more cross overs with PP.
If Teddy and Cris dump Owen they will be so much better off without him. In 6.20 I thought Cris and Teddy interactions were quite good they could be friends.
How come in 6.22 they linked Teddy/Owen to Richard/Ellis and Cris was asking if she was Thatcher. Teddy/Owen is not that toxic relationship as Richard had with Ellis and he started drinking. If they were making this reference do you think in S7 Owen will starts drinking?
When Teddy came first I like her when she put Cristina on her place and Arizona I like her. But the triangle ruined Teddy's character.

I thought Teddy had a lot of potentialnon the ep that she was introduced (before the triangle) - she was a strong and intelligent female character, and her interaction with AZ in that ep was interesting. Then it just went downhill from there to the point that I went from really liking her character at first to being annoyed that she is taking screentime away from Calzona. She just has way too much screentime for a new character (obviously due to the triangle) and her scenes are almost always downers.

Another thing that bugged me was that they made Teddy more of a central character than AZ in their scenes together. I feel like they are wasting valuable AZ screentime in these scenes and we AZ fans don't get a lot out of them,

i think the writers have their work cut out for them if they want to make Teddy likeable again. Absolutely no good came out of that triangle storyline.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Alex as a favorite yet. I loved him from the start!  Shocked

My favorites (overall, besides Callie and Arizona) are Cristina, Bailey, Alex, Addison, Mark (I admit: the steam works well on me) and Lexie.
Less favorite but most of the time still okay are Mer (when not too whiney), Derek (although boring as hell), Izzie, George (loved him only till he messed up Callie), Owen (but in danger zone!) and Teddy (might upgrade next season though, cause I do love the storylines with Cristina) and the Chief.
Couldn't stand: Burke and Hahn. Yikes.

We've got reruns overhere now (season 3) and I have to say that some of them changed for the good, and some changed for the bad. I don't mind that the show is a bit different now than it was back than. They all grew up - even the attendings. I really love that (maybe because I did as well!? Wink )
