Happy (Super Belated) New Year, Cristina and Owen Fans!

Posted by on Jan 22, 2014 in Blogger: shli1117, Interview, Kevin McKidd, Sandra Oh | 8 comments

Long time to chat, my fellow Cristina and Owen fans! I hope things have been well. I hope you have missed me as I’ve missed you. But I’m so glad that Cinderoni has stepped in to fulfill all our Cristina and Owen needs. What a rockstar!

If you’re wondering why I have been so MIA, it’s because I have four jobs. Yes. Four. But hey, you can’t really complain when you’re living out your dreams, right? (Okay, I feel like some complaining should still be allowed.)

So what is inspiring this post?  Well, first of all, because I finally have time to sit down and write something (that I’m assuming most of you won’t read because I’m just a faded memory). But second because I saw this awesome TV Fanatic interview with Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd and had my fervent fangirl feelings return for a lovely (but fleeting) moment where I was reminded of the love I have for this couple…and then I remembered that we’re inching closer to the last days of Cristina and Owen onscreen together on a regular basis. (Though, let’s be honest. They haven’t really had consistent onscreen time together for a while.)

Episode 10.01 to 10.04 Review: “Everybody’s Crying”…Period

The title says it all. Everybody’s crying. This is going to be harder than I thought it was going to be. I came in, thinking I had steeled myself to the reality that Sandra Oh is leaving this show and that I was ready to let go of this show – and say a final, bittersweet farewell to Cristina and Owen. However, these past few episodes have proven that I am still attached to these two, which has honestly been a surprising emotional response.

It’s (Almost) the End of an Era, But Don’t Be Sad

Posted by on Sep 9, 2013 in Blogger: shli1117, Cristina Yang, Owen Hunt, Season 10 | 21 comments

My dear Cristina and Owen fans,

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer. I know that we look upon Season 10 with sadness now that we know of Sandra Oh’s decision to leave the show. But we have a full season’s worth of Cristina Yang before we have to say goodbye. And that means, we have 24 episodes to come to terms with the fact that the romance we saw begin with a surprising and passionate kiss back in season 5 will most likely come to an end.

There’s something to be said about having time to prepare yourself, and there is so much we can see happen in 24 episodes. Maybe it’s not what we had dreamed for them when Cristina and Owen first came into existence, but it’s something. (And let’s face it, we all realized that we weren’t going to get what we wanted in season 6.)

Episode 9.17 to 9.24: The Wreckage from “The Perfect Storm”

Posted by on May 19, 2013 in Blogger: shli1117, Cristina Yang, Kevin McKidd, Owen Hunt, Reviews / Podcasts / Blogs, Sandra Oh, Season 9 | 8 comments

GA 9x17-9.24

I think we all saw this coming. We’ve been fans of this show for too long not to know how Shonda operates. No couple can stay happy forever — except, possibly Meredith and Derek. I mean, look at Callie and Arizona, even they are not safe from the drama. (Though they’ve avoided the full extent of “Shonda relationship drama” for a long, long time.) So, despite having a nice, long string of episodes where Cristina and Owen have been very much together and supportive of each other in the way that we’ve always wanted them to be when they were married.

Episode 9.10 to 9.16 Review: “This is Why We Fight” for Cristina and Owen

Posted by on Mar 3, 2013 in Blogger: shli1117, Cristina Yang, Kevin McKidd, Owen Hunt, Reviews / Podcasts / Blogs, Sandra Oh, Season 9 | 11 comments

9.10 to 9.16

I’m really sorry I’ve been missing in action for the past month or so. For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably realized that I’ve gotten a new gig as a freelance writer/film intern. And unfortunately, keeping up with those deadlines has forced me to put my Cristina and Owen reviews on the backburner while I appeased my editors. But things have calmed down for the moment, and I’m going to lump a whopping seven episodes into one review. Hopefully, the wait has been worth the while. (Also, I should mention that you can thank the wonderful Grey’s Gabble owners for gently reminding me that I was way past due for a review. These lovely ladies have been incredibly supportive and understanding as my schedule blew up. So, huge shout out to Lisa and Liv!)

Episode 9.08 to 9.09 Review: Cristina and Owen’s “Love Turns [Us] Upside Down”

Posted by on Dec 21, 2012 in Blogger: shli1117, Cristina Yang, Kevin McKidd, Owen Hunt, Reviews / Podcasts / Blogs, Sandra Oh, Season 9 | 16 comments

Well, that last episode brought a little bit of holiday cheer, didn’t it? I know we’ve been at this too long to think that all their problems are over, but at least it seems they’re off to a good start toward reconciliation. Apparently, both Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd were telling the truth that the divorce proceedings were ultimately a good thing for their relationship – a way for them to start afresh.
