Critic Reviews for Grey's Anatomy Season 11

Derek's death comes with the ultimate gut-punch... But at this point in the Grey's Anatomy universe, if anyone can come out of this tragedy as a tougher, better character than ever, it's Meredith Grey. At least, we can hope so.

Not only did he help usher in one of TV's best romances of the past 10 years, Patrick Dempsey delivered to us a kind, compassionate character who may be the only person in the world who can get away with saying, "It's a beautiful night to save lives."

And that's how a McDream dies.

Grey's greatest gift is the connections it builds across the cast.

It's nice to see Grey's pull back on the throttle on its soap opera tendencies (and I hate using that word as pejorative) and aim for drama that feels a bit more grounded.

Creatively speaking, there's nothing worse than watching a longtime favorite wear out its welcome.

Mar 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The series has subtly shifted in many ways to work better for the long haul, but the most consistent thing about it has been that the tone of the series as established by Rhimes in its first season has stayed remarkably consistent.

Mar 17, 2020 | Full Review…

I like the addition of Geena Davis to the cast, and even more, I like that she offers the opportunity for us to see a main character learning from someone again.

Mar 17, 2020 | Full Review…

So, the question I had heading into Grey's Anatomy's Season 11 premiere was just how much Cristina's absence would be felt. And at the end, I have to say-while the lack of Yang was definitely noticeable, I think the show will be just fine with out her.

Sep 26, 2014 | Full Review…

I don't know which was more awkward/funny - Derek asking about a random game or Richard's steady hands compliment that evolved into an invitation to play Jenga.

Sep 26, 2014 | Full Review…

The acting remains stellar, the drama is mixed with just the right amount of humor and darn it if I'm not now wrapped up in the future of MerDer.

Audience Reviews for Grey's Anatomy: Season 11

    The season may be one of the hardest to watch this side of season one. Almost every episode is cry-worthy.
  • Jul 15, 2019
    The most depressing season, but they were able to pull off Cristina's exit and develop Meredith as a character. Ellen and the rest of the cast acted out so well this season, when don't they? Though the finale was anticlimactic.

    Eu realmente gosto desta temporada centrada na Meredith. Tudo está bem justificado. Eu odeio a Maggie, mas sei que gostarei dela futuramente. Gostei da evolução da relação entre a Callie e a Arizona. Só quero mais casos médicos interessantes e melhores histórias para o Alex e para a Bailey. Tenho saudades da Addison, da Izzie, da Sydney e quero ressuscitar o George, a Lexie e o Mark.

    I started watching “Grey’s Anatomy” because it was a medical show and I want to do that someday, but once I started watching I got hooked and ever since then I’ve watched it every Thursday. The episode where Derek died was so devastating; he was the best character. Meredith and Derek were the couple of the show, and they just took him off the show which made the show so much different.
  • Sep 23, 2015
    this was my favorite show in 2005. I pulled the plug on this a long, long time ago and so should ABC.

    I really have to give Shonda Rhimes and the writers credit for keeping this aging show fresh. They have had some of their best episodes this season and it's still seems fresh after 11 years. I guess Shonda really is a genius.
  • Mar 05, 2015
    In Shonda Rhimes’s TV series Grey’s Anatomy follows the life of surgical intern (and eventual resident) at Seattle Grace Hospital Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and her daily struggles of balancing her demanding work, helping her mother, who is also a surgeon, battle with Alzheimer’s, and managing her love life with world renowned and married neurosurgeon Derrick Shepard played by Patrick Dempsey. Grey’s Anatomy makes the viewer fall in love with Meredith and her fellow interns through then failures and triumphs as surgical interns. Rhimes’s drama introduces and tells the story of heartwarming and significant characters that appeal to a mature audience that gives a perfect blend of comedy and drama making it an instant classic.

    Still loving it-just not sooo much. Didn't begin watching until Season 4-then watched all the back seasons to catch up. Still missing Christina and the lacks in those particular storylines, so this season has been my Least favorite thus far. Some of the main characters who have left are sorely missed in the scripts. Kate Walsh and Kim Raver were big contributors and with Christina gone too-Shonda needs to come up with something that fills that void! Many of the replacement characters just aren't THAT interesting. And where is Kevin McKidd's good storyline? Losing it's appeal quickly!! Needs a heart transplant to revive it..........
