In two new “PSAs”, cast members from Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder discuss symptoms of TGiT withdrawal and remedies to hold us over until January 29, 2015.
We’re still two weeks from the return of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder, and while 14 days still seems far away, our favorite Shondaland actors know that we’re going through TGiT withdrawals and have been offering some remedies to help us get through the drought.
In a previous “public service announcement”, Matt McGorry (Asher Millstone), Jack Falahee (Connor Walsh), and Aja Naomi King (Michaela Pratt) from How to Get Away with Murder (hilariously) encouraged us to take all that anxiety and just dance it out.
Well, this week, ABC released two new PSAs about TGiTWD, the symptoms, and a couple more solutions to help us with our condition. In the first, Katie Lowes (Quinn Perkins) and Scott Foley (Jake Ballard) from Scandal outline some of the TGiTWD symptoms and how going to a medical professional might not really help. And in the second PSA, Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres) and Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt) encourage us to re-watch previous episodes and tweet with friends to increase our awesomness quotient. Check them out below:
So first, I think this ad campaign is brilliant! I mean, those of us who are experiencing TGiT withdrawal really do exhibit these symptoms. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used the phrase “it’s handled” in everyday conversation. I’m not ashamed to say I’m a TGiT addict…and thank goodness that, as Kevin points out, TGiT is not a narcotic (LOL!). But I’ll take any opportunity to rewatch older episodes, drink wine, and eat popcorn. I’ve already gone through seasons 2 and 3 of Scandal, and could be persuaded to power-watch some Grey’s and How to Get Away with Murder.
In any event, let’s take their advice to know the signs and know the return date–I can’t wait until January 29 for no more waiting!
And keep in mind that tonight, ABC is airing an encore of Episode 8 “He Has a Wife” at 10:00pm ET|PT, so take advantage!
