  • Still disfunctional, but growing up.

    One of Hank and Meredith's dialogue lines about their relationship caught pretty much my attention because in more ways than I can describe it's how I sum up this show: "disfunctional". This hardly means one thing is bad, but rather that it could be better. Since the pilot episode I saw many great elements in this show and because of many subterfuges to attract attention (like the overnudity) or the twists in the show's original description, I stopped watching it until a friend told me it got better right where I left. The thing is, Hank's **** up life with his neverending wrong attempts to make things better is a perfect allusion to most people's day-to-day lifes. For one thing, he wants Karen and Meredith is just a distraction, but Meredith leaving him, even if he asked for it, is more than he can handle. All in all, this is without doubt the show's best episode so far and a sign that it can be back on track.

    Stay tuned to find out.
