So bits of the pre-production Grey's Anatomy spin-off with Addison have been let out of the bag. The special 2-hour Addison gets-the-hell-out of Seattle episode will air in May. She's dunzo with McSteamy, and her former hubby McDreamy is now happily conjoined with intern Meredith. So, what's a brilliant doctor girl who just wants love and adoration from a well
hung rounded man to do?
She flies to Santa Monica, California for a get-away to see a couple of her old medical school classmates, Naomi (Merrin Dungey) and Jackson (Taye Diggs), and they are literally a married couple whom Addison thinks has "it all" you know perfect kids, perfect house, perfect love, and perfect touchy feely health co-op business. But, of course, since this is TV, perfect couples always end up being humanly flawed.
Addsion meets the cast of characters at the Oceanside Wellness Group co-op; "a widowed alternative medicine doctor, a self-doubting therapist and a male gynecologist who knows little about women", and concludes that they too are nutzoid like the pretty people at Seattle Grace, but in a more harmonious Feng Shui way, so she decides to plant her Forbes Montgomery roots in this granola hospital for a spell.
Sounds like an adventure, and maybe Addison can hook herself up with some "fight global warming" kind of hunk. Honestly, I think I'm more excited that on prime time TV we'll get to see doctors treating patients using alternative medicine. I'm sure they will throw in all the typical Western medical stuff as well, but what a breathe of fresh air to see other healing modalities.
