Another note on reviewer perspective: I’m one month shy of my fortieth birthday. I’ve seen a lot of TV in that time, and that has an impact on my response to shows. I write about how I like something; I’m not smart enough to tell you whether you’ll like it or not.
Case in point: Grey’s Anatomy, the new Sunday drama about interns. This is not a Boomtown or an Arrested Development, doing things in a way that is distinct from all that came before. It’s reasonably smoothly done (if sometimes lacking in subtlety) with a mostly good cast, but the pilot suggests that I won’t be seeing anything covered here that I haven’t already seen in shows from St. Elsewhere through Scrubs, and without the additional fun of those two particular examples.
So it’s not for me. But if you’re not edge-of-forty, if you haven’t watched decades of medical drama, you may like it. That’s a call you’ll have to make.
(Now I’ll have to find an explanation for why, at this particular age, the network TV drama I most fervently refuse to miss is one about a teen girl detective…)
