DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Thursday -

WON­DER­FUL or­gan, the brain, the way it pro­tects you from trau­matic events. I also have a bad mem­ory. But ei­ther way I’m fairly cer­tain tonight’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy is the worst tele­vi­sion show I’ve seen in a long, long time. I can’t tell you ex­actly what amount of time, but I would es­ti­mate ever. Ob­vi­ously there have been bad shows be­fore to­day. We all know that. But not bad shows that are as ex­pen­sive as this one, and are as re­motely un­aware they’re bad, and that are mu­si­cals. Yes, this is a mu­si­cal episode in which the doc­tors launch into song while they’re do­ing tricky surgery.

Ev­ery sin­gle doc­tor on staff, pos­si­bly who has ever been on staff, is in the theatre work­ing on the hor­ror car crash vic­tim who’s rushed in tonight. So very dire is the prog­no­sis (or maybe this is just an in­di­ca­tion of how ‘‘ im­por­tant’’ the pa­tient is) Dr Ad­di­son Mont­gomery from Pri­vate Prac­tice has been chop­pered in— sen­si­bly wear­ing a red shirt — to as­sess the sit­u­a­tion. It’s clearly as grim as she thought: Dr Lucy Fields can’t sing and must be pushed
