Dr. Burke is so firedJune 8, 2007 at 1:34 am | Posted in Grey's Anatomy, TV News | Leave a comment
He called T.R. Knight the other f-word and choked McDreamy, so it’s not too surprising that the Grey’s Anatomy folks fired Isaiah Washington. I’m just surprised that ABC didn’t do it sooner. Now, I generally hate it when outside forces screw up show plotlines (e.g. Robert Downey, Jr. on Ally McBeal), but I’m fine in this case. Christina and Burke’s relationship was interesting, but no longer exciting. Now, Christina is free to hook up with a hot new doc. The big winner in all this? T.R. Knight, who’s gained tons of respect from the classy handling of his sexuality becoming public, and a pay increase of $125k per episode.
