What a brilliant episode! There's already a lot of interest in anatomy jane dolls on the internet, my daughter is at university studying to be a paramedic and I would love to give her one of them but they don't exist (yet)! Here's hoping someone will market them soon.
I love the way the new attending is shown as an arrogant man at first but later you get to know him better. I'm glad Izzy and Alex are together. Not sure about Torres and Erica but it's very well done.
Very clever the way the major operation and the pigs were interlinked. Not sure about the major operation which seemed to be a bit "oh good she's all better now" rather than "we'll have to see how she gets on in ITU" but that's drama and besides I'm influenced by being a retired nurse.
The pros and cons of medical research on animals was well presented and a serious subject.
All told- I loved it!
