What I loved about watching the show back, consecutively, is that the BTS episodes, while still contrived (Izzie treats a deer. Really?), did not leave as terrible an impression on me as they did originally. I was able to jump right into the ATS episodes (the highlight being Jason O’Mara as a brain tumor patient in the Derek and Meredith clinical trial), versus waiting months to see them, and the whole season felt more solid, more like the beginning of the show had a point.
It’s almost like we needed to Christina cut herself off, Meredith be a super whiny pain in the ass, George fail at everything, Meredith and Derek fail, Bailey continue to be the best thing about the show, etc., in order for us to realize in the end that Christina could be totally strong on her own, Meredith would eventually realize that she needs Derek, George would get a backbone again, Meredith and Derek would be together, and Bailey wouldn’t let anything stop her from being the best thing about the show.
Definitely worth adding to the collection – BTS episodes: C, ATS episodes: A, Average rating: B!
