Grey’s Anatomy (ABC): There have been some recent articles about how the medical part of this show is inaccurate. If you are watching this show or any medical show or any TV show in general for accuracy then you might as well read a book or something. Grey’s Anatomy is not about the medicine it is about this group of people who happen to be doctors at a fictitious hospital in Seattle. It is about the dialogue, character interactions and soap opera twisting story telling. On tonight’s episode the secret of Grey’s mother becomes public when she is brought in for surgery. Also so bad news about Cristina’s health come to the forefront.
