Grey's Anatomy is BACK!
21 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

From about two episodes the episodes excitement started to get down, the scenes heat started to go down. I said to myself i will not continue watching if it will keep up like that. but suddenly wow! I mean wow! the episodes level got up fast the scenes got more awesome. Shepard refuse to go to work, Hunt issue with Christina got more series, Alex and Izzie is back together and she has to do an operation the story got more awesome. the acting is going to better and better I think if they keep up like that they can make until season 10 : ) also what I want to say to the writers keep going on that track it's totally awesome!
