The Decline of Grey’s Anatomy, How I See It…

I spent the afternoon jotting down all the things I have to do over the next few days/weeks. I could start with getting some of the things done right away today, but… there is always tomorrow. And the day after that… :-)
There was interesting discussion in my twitter stream last night about when Grey’s Anatomy changed from being an amazing TV show to just a mediocre and in my eyes nowadays even most of the times rather underwhelming TV show. I guess we – the ones that were/are invested enough to even spend time thinking about this – probably have different opinions about that, depending on what aspect of the show we are/were most intrigued by or interested in. In this post I’ll try to put together my personal thoughts on the decline of Grey’s Anatomy.

Grey’s Anatomy 7.18 – “Song Beneath The Song”

This might be the first review which I wrote without having watched the episode for a 2nd time. There is no way I’m going to watch this one on the whole for a 2nd time. Ever. I’m so glad that this “music event“ went finally on the air and hopefully the hype Shonda and ABC created about it will slow down. Slow down fast, please. Because this episode? Was the epic failure I expected it to be. Maybe if I had managed to keep an open mind about it, I wouldn’t have disliked it to that extent. But like I had already written yesterday: I was long past the stage of “open-minded” about this episode.

Grey’s Anatomy 7.17 – “This Is How We Do It”

I wish I could just get over my addiction to this show already. To just quit it. Cold turkey or something. Is there some “GAA” group out there somewhere? Because I obviously haven’t reached that stage yet and so I will continue to watch  “Grey’s Anatomy” while having breakfast on my day off. It used to be my Free Friday Fun activity, but it’s not that much fun anymore. *sigh*

Glee M.D.

When I’ve first read that Grey’s Anatomy was planning a musical episode I was torn between “Wow, that’s cool” and “Oh no, how awful”. I’ve always liked and often even loved the music on Grey’s. I wasn’t used to that much music on a regular TV show and they did a wonderful job with setting the mood of a scene or episode with the music they choose. I’ve also discovered a lot of new wonderful artists via the Grey’s soundtrack. All these were reasons for the first “Wow” reaction.
But very soon the “Oh no!” reaction was so much stronger. I feared doctors breaking out into tapdance during rounds and such. Well not quite, but to break into a song during a scene and just… Ugh! It might work on “Glee”, but even there I’m not usual a fan of that. But that’s just me. Anyway, the idea of “Glee M.D.” as Patrick Dempsey joked in one article, seemed horrible to me.

Grey’s Anatomy 7.16 – “Not Responsible”

This week the show returns to the mediocrity I got used to during season 7 so far. To save time I’ll do this review in a list of “Liked” and “Disliked”. There was stuff I didn’t care about one way or the other, which won’t be mentioned here. You know… saving time and blog space.

Grey’s Anatomy 7.15 – “Golden Hour”

I had started writing this review last night, but then I stopped because I was too tired to keep typing. This morning I couldn’t find the file anymore *headdesk*. I have either deleted it accidently or overwritten it with another file or.. whatever. It was gone, which kind of is symptomatic for this week where so many things have gone wrong. But, the Grey’s episode itself didn’t go wrong, it was surprisingly entertaining to watch. At least I had a great time and I don’t think it’s because I might have lowered my standards :-). A lot of the episode felt like the “good old Grey’s” and it was wonderful to see that this is still possible. It most probably was the exception from the rule, when I think about what I already know will happen later this season… Baby Torres this and Baby Torres that. I might have to get back to this episode over and over again in the next few weeks to balance it :-)

Grey’s Anatomy 7.14 – “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)”

Writing this review is going to be easy. If you want to know in detail what I thought of this episode in general just read some of the last few reviews in my „Addicted to Grey’s” category. This newest episode was basically the same kind of meh.
