Critic Reviews for Grey's Anatomy Season 17

As Grey's Anatomy sought to shove as many covid-19 references into an episode as it could, I felt more exhausted than healed.

Nov 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Features one of the most coronavirus-centric TV plots we've seen since studios started filming again. The result is one of the most moving season premieres in the show's history, which after nearly two decades is saying a lot.

Nov 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Though the two-hour Grey's Anatomy Season 17 premiere largely focuses on the current health crisis, it still manages to offer romance, lighthearted moments, and an emotional surprise that no one could have seen coming.

    A hard watch so far this year with the show reflecting reality and being dominated by Covid. interesting that unlike most other shows they are not dipping in and then moving on. Still Greys at its best however hard it is to watch. Just find it funny that so many reviewers claim showcasing Covid means being Political. far from it.

    Really destroying one of the greatest shows of all time😭😭

    I have LOVED Grey's Anatomy from the very beginning, the earlier seasons I have watched many times over. Regarding Season 17 - To the creator and producers PLEASE stop with the political messages and monologues! Enough is enough. We watch GA for some escapism, we do not need the producer's and show creator's political agendas shoved down our throats every episode. Go back to what made GA so great, the romance, humour, and character story lines that were not politically motivated. ALL lives matter!

    Season is disgustingly over political. Fascinating how they stuck to Covid rules though.

    I feel like I have to see it through to the end. Preachy. Depressing. Predictable. None of the humour that made me fall in love with the series.

    The show is losing its grip by the day.. characters are wandering isolated with open stories, most of which are so boring and useless, completely disconnected from one another. It used to be a brilliant ensemble but now, it is really hard to keep watching. Enough of these pathetic complaints over and over I cannot stand that Teddy Altman anymore, or puppet Owen. The Jackson-Maggie thing was very low and Meredith sleeping for half the season with those flashbacks is too much. Please start writing again. Last episode before winter pause was completely empty and frustrating, except for the last 30 seconds

    Terrible, an episode or two about covid is fine but six???? I just want drama, good stories, not reality TV and political statement, I've watched this series for 17 years, no more done won't watch another episode.
  • Dec 23, 2020
    I tried to stick with this show until the end but season 17 is so terrible it isn't watching you. The plot is something they trickle in between 10 minute lectures. The show as a vehicle to raise awareness about the issues the writers want you to know about? 100%. The show as a form of entertainment? 2%

    This season has gone too political...From exaggerrating things related to COVID and having boring monologues about racism the show is dead ! It's not a medical drama show anymore that has some funny scenes here and there ! It has become a political propaganda (for democrats I guess)...The only Idea I liked this season is the fact that they made Meredith so sick that she could talk to old characters (dead in previous seasons) like O'malley and Derek. I hope they bring back Sloan and Lexie.

    This season has been amazing. Its great to see a wee insight of what happens behind the doors at a hospital during these hard times. I was so happy that they went with having the storyline around Covid-19. I have enjoyed this season more than the last few.
