Burke-Off?

The New York Times reports that Isaiah Washington's future with Grey's Anatomy is in question.

I, for one, think it would be a shame to lose the scenes between the emotionless, robotic Burke and the emotionless, robotic Yang. Their scenes are so filled with moments of not speaking or having facial expressions or even moving their necks.

In a time when TV characters (even other ones on Grey's Anatomy) are so full of feeling and humanity, don't we need Burke and Yang and their cold, dead gazes now more than ever?

So refreshing that I'm not the only one who feels like those two are deadweight on the show. Can't we replace them with other actors that we liked back in the day, like Dempsey and O'Donnell? Like Andrew McCarthy, he could join the cast as a wise surgeon needing a fresh start in Seattle and he could take over for Isaiah "clenched jaw" Washington. Or what about having Sean Young replace Sandra "cold fish" Oh as an intern in her 40's who is pursuing her long lost dream of medicine? Just a thought.

Seriously! On a show that is so full of charming, winning personalities, these two Easter Island heads are a total drag.
