Grey’s Anatomy is currently in its 10th season. That means, as of right now, it’s been on for one more season than it had number of episodes in season 1. And I’m not here to say that’s wrong. I still enjoy the show, and I’ll honestly never stop watching, but I do want to talk about what season 10 could learn from what I believe is the show’s best season to date: season 2.
Let me make it clear that I’m not saying seasons 3 through 9 were bad. In my opinion, there have only been a few lulls in the show’s history, and most of them didn’t last a full season. Sure, some seasons were better than others, but that’s why I’m writing this now, because I feel like season 10 is losing me a little bit.
Ten years of story is a lot, especially on a show like Grey’s. We’ve seen countless medical mysteries, workplace dramas, and catastrophic events. Bomb scare? Done. Male “pregnancy”? Done. Plane crash? Check. Hospital shooting? Done that too. Everyone sleeping with everyone? Check and double check. So what’s left for season 10?
Although I’m currently enjoying the Jackson-April story, other than that, I’m struggling a bit. The interns I once liked are rubbing me the wrong way, and I do not enjoy watching Bailey spiral in any way shape or form (but hopefully that’s over). And having Meredith fight with Cristina for half the season and now Derek? It’s a little exhausting. And the more I watch, the more I miss certain things that were once central to the Grey’s experience and now seem to have fallen into the background (or aren’t being used the same way).
Here’s my wish list for 10 things I’d love to return/be used more often: READ FULL STORY
