We've got the introduction of that Eric Stoltz serial killer arc, some ghost sex, some Melissa George, plus the indignity of McDreamy's dancing, as well as a scheduled MRI for a patient with a knife in his spine (it turned out to be plastic, but they scheduled the MRI before questioning what the object was made out of, then let the patient lie on his shank-stabbed back while awaiting surgery), a little overly emotional unprofessionalism out of Bailey, doctors too stupid to know that you can Google serial killers, a doctor withholding painkillers from a patient simply because he doesn't like him, and everybody just generally behaving in a way that no one ever would, ever. Though I still say none of that is as bad as Meredith's idiotic voiceover in the beginning about how birthday wishes sometimes come true. You are an adult, lady! With a college education! Stop talking like you're nine!
But it's not all bad. This was Arizona's first episode, and she's become a character I really love. And Alex baked Izzie a pink birthday cake and presented it saying, "Cake tastes kinda funny, but the frosting's pretty good." Even I can admit it's hard not to love a line like that.
But let's be honest with each other -- the important thing about this show being added to Hulu is that the rest of ABC won't be far behind (the ABC player has a lot of content, but it's such a pain in the ass sometimes), with hopefully some older series being added eventually as well. Yay, progress!
