Ms. Pompeo refers to the “strong group of women” driving the show. You’ve got to be kidding me. With the notable exception of Catherine and Bailey (who, is strong when the script isn’t turning her into a flibbertygibbet), the female doctors are children. Starting with the most childish of them all, Maggie. I can sort of handle Jo and there’s been a mild improvement in post-tumor Amelia, but these are not women I want operating on my brain or my heart, I don’t care how amazing they are as surgeons. I don’t think I have to point out examples of their childishness.
I would never condone a toxic work environment but the show was much better while “toxic” than it is now. They ran off good, complex characters, shuffled other good characters to the sidelines and ended up with this bunch of twits.
