OK, so would anybody please tell me why we all watch Grey’s Anatomy? Don’t we have books to write, jobs to do, relationship to nurture?
As a writer, I appreciate that the characters are immediately likeable. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be friends with George?
The plot, however, is far from the nail-biting Prison Break or the mysterious LOST. And the subject matter is, let’s face it, grim. Somebody dies in almost every episode, we get exposed to blood and guts and vomit.
So where is the hook? (And the answer is not “Because McDreamy is cute.”)
