An episode worth watching, because one person made an appearance.
30 January 2006 | by TruPretenderSee all my reviews

I do not watch "Greys Anatomy" on a regular basis. I just never cared much for it. We have had many other medical dramas such as "ER". I was not considering any such time to spend with this particular episode, until I discovered that Helen Slater, a dear favorite of mine, was amongst the guest stars. I actually realized that this show has real characters, who were more than just contrived characters for a ratings fanatic sweep. After "Desperate Housewives", ABC was too obvious in their ways to keep up the big numbers. In any case, this show has some real humor and interest within it, and I will never judge a book like this by its cover. I can't speak much for the main cast, but I will say, that Sandra Oh is always a delight to watch, as is Patrick Dempsey, whom starred with guest star Slater in "Happy Together" in 1989. The stories were more intense, and Helen Slater was more so acknowledged, but still brilliant with effortless gravitation as she is on screen.
