I really hate what they've done with Libby this season.

Yeah, they've really made her unlikeable.

I'm beginning to side with the people who say this show has taken a step back this season.

I thought Sarah Silverman was a good addition to the cast. The dinner date fix up conversation with her & Bridgett was a good time. That poor horse.

Definitely. Hopefully that changes now that they are ready to resume the study for real.
Although I thought this was a marked improvement over the previous episodes.

Yeah, I thought this was a really good episode- hopefully sign of things to come.

It's like they decided Libby was too sympathetic and might cause viewers to be conflicted about the Bill/Virginia 'romance', so they've decided to Skyler her.

My only thought was that he dislikes what Master's is doing so much, that he doesn't want "his" people to be involved with it at all. I don't understand that though, because when he was giving his speech to Master's he sounded like he not only appreciated his drive, but because it was an important thing (as is integration).

So in short, no fucking clue.

It shows that regardless of color, physicians were appalled by his study at the time.

I guess, but I still thought that he didn't seem appalled when he was talking to him about it.

He wants his OB/GYN business and white patients to integrate. Not his study; not that he would tell him that.

That's exactly what it is. Bill's study means nothing to him, he brought Bill on board merely to bring in white patients and try and push integration. As he said, he doesn't have patience for slow change - he wants it to happen as quick as possible... even more so probably because he knows his window with Bill is small as he can only string him along for so long. Bill will eventually bail when he finds he's not getting the support for the study he was promised.
The other thought is he DOES care about Bill's study, but doesn't want it to be conducted with black people - so Bill has to bring in more white people to the hospital.

This thing with Betty is annoying. She's kept the hooker thing from her hubby... and the fact that she couldn't have a baby. They felt they rode that for too long so everything is out in the open. So now they need to do something with her, so they made her have a lesbian past and is now hiding THAT from her husband. Ugh.

They're definitely making Libby a bitch just to make Bill and Virginia not look as bad in comparison. And Virginia is becoming very unlikeable. I like the Lillian character - it'd be a shame if they killed her off so soon.

We need Scully back.
