Made me realise why I don't watch regularly
19 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I am not a regular watcher of "Grey's Anatomy" so this comment is coming from someone who has seen this episode as a one-off, not as a fan. Having said that, the reason I don't watch the show regularly is because I saw some clips and previews and found it to be not to my liking. So when I comment on this poor episode it is already at a disadvantage! I tuned in for this one because of the guest starring role by CJ Sanders, he was so good as Young Ray and I wanted to see him in something else.

It was fairly easy to work out the relationships between the regular characters, mostly doctors. I found it very irritating and silly. It's really annoying in workplace shows where every character has slept with every other character. I found that little attention was paid to the actual medical cases, which is a shame. It was mostly about the doctors' random hook-ups. Unfortunately CJ Sanders didn't have a very big role, and neither did any other of the guest stars, I also found their story lines were barely developed at all and didn't find the ending satisfying.

Some nice scenes but a very irritating show! I'm sorry to offend all the fans but I just don't like it one bit!
