She proved not only that she’s still got the touch, but, for a series that’s been on for 12 seasons and many people have written off as a broadcast relic in an age of streaming cable, that Grey’s Anatomy is still capable of a first-class viewing experience.” PLUS: Denzel Washington’s direction proved very effective.
