Worst episode ever in the history of television drama
5 September 2011 | by BobsterILSee all my reviews

WORST EPISODE EVER! Not just of Grey's Anatomy, but of any TV show. Have they truly "jumped the shark"? The music in this show was already way too intrusive. I could have done completely without the music throughout the series. Trying to listen to a song while trying to understand the dialog was very difficult and annoying. Then, in this episode, everyone started to sing! Why? There was absolutely no need for it. I had to mute the sound and try to watch the captions to avoid the annoying songs! Please, please, please don't do it again. And, if you want to make this series special again, do away with the vocal songs on the soundtrack. This is a DRAMA series, not a soap opera, not a musical. I tune in to see the acting. The vocal songs get in the way. There were two drama/musical series tried. They both FAILED! I'll give you one guess. No one wants to see singing in a drama series. If I tuned in without knowing what this series was about, I would have tuned out in about 7 seconds. Don't do it again!
