It may be because I'm such a medical nerd, but does anyone else find it odd how little time everyone (the 1st year residents, besides Meredith) spend such little time in the OR? I mean, in the first season as interns they got more time doing surgeries. Heck, George got dubbed "007" cause he killed someone during a appendectomy. And I feel like they spend too much time just dallying around.
They talk about surgeries, but I would think as they are in their 2nd year of the program, they would do more things on their own. I almost feel like career-wise they've all taken a step back. Which may be why everyone feels the show has gone downhill. I mean, how are they to progress as doctors and as people, if all they do is bitch and moan, and never actually do.
The ups and downs of the characters should be more about the patients, and the group trying to become better doctors, as well as better people. Instead everyone is so focused on their own drama. And only Christina has a specialty decided. Everyone is kind of going with the flow. Where's the drive and determination we all fell in love with?
