Critic Reviews for Grey's Anatomy: Season 8

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Juxtaposed against that nightmare that launched season 8's two-hour season premiere was exactly what the show does portray rather accurately (most of the time): the relationship drama.

Full Review… | September 12, 2013
Television Without Pity

Grey's has had a good season and has an intensely loyal fan base to prove it.

This episode set the season in motion, and from the looks of it, it's going to be good.
