My favourite drama show is Grey's Anatomy. Or, rather, my favourite drama show was Grey's Anatomy. After last week's episode, I'm seriously beginning to doubt my attachment to the show.
I mean, I really don't understand what's all the fuss about making a musical episode in general. And I really, really don't see the point of seeing/imagining surgeons sing behind their surgical masks.
That's the biggest faux-pas of GA so far. The whole episode was so unconvincing, it made me doubt of all the reasons why I usually love this show. What's more, the songs were not even original ones, but sort of famous songs. They used their old successes by having 3 or 4 characters sing important songs from the first seasons of the show. The result was both pathetic -the way they called on their old glory- and completely unbalanced -that's the way only a few characters got to sing.
As I said, I really don't get the fuss about musicals, but if you're going to do one, do a masterpiece like Once More With Feeling, Buffy's musical. It was a masterpiece in the sense that all actors sang original songs that talked about their characters feelings. That was truly amazing.
