After watching a hell of a lot of theatre at the Fringe, and then a hell of a lot of film at TIFF, I decided I’d apply my 100-word structure to the hell of a lot of television that’s premiered as part of last week’s Fall season opening.
Such a strange beast, Grey’s Anatomy. For every “John Doe is George!” there’s a musical car crash, so I never know how I feel. But I think (THINK) with this opener I’m willing to let go. There were some shining moments, namely Cristina’s decision – so rarely seen on television – to have an abortion because she simply never wants children, sold exceptionally well by Oh and Pompeo. But otherwise there was just a get-out-of-jail-free for Meredith’s firing, unnecessary fretting from Kepner, and random flirting for no reason. Plus some guy had to amputate his wife’s leg. Still, no zombies.
