and I thought it cant get any worse
16 November 2008 | by (Bratislava, Slovakia) – See all my reviews

this was the most hypocritical and disgusting thing I have ever seen on TV. I don't know where they are going with the Izzie storyline and Im not sure I want to know. he is dead but no one can rest in piece because they keep on dragging his dead body out of the grave to annoy and hurt. I thought after the disaster they came up with in the third season there cant be anything worse but I severely underestimated the writers. they can do worse. so much worse.

I don't like Merediths old friend. she is annoying.

Im not sure I like the way they are showing McArmy down our throats. tone it down a little he is an interesting character but it is too much at once. but Kevin MvKidd is awesome. he deserves better.

I don't like the idea of Mark & Lexie.

basically the only thing I liked about this episode was MerDer and the Mark/Callie friendship. and that was like 3,5 minutes of the show.

I even wont start on how they are treating Alex or I would be here all night. I though Greys got their groove back. but now it seems more as though they completely lost their minds
