"Come Hang At Grey's"  
Marti Noxon on her first episode. And of course, no Grey's episode is ever complete without reading the Writer's Blog, but this one, you have to go read.

See, I'll give you a snippet, the part without spoilers:

.... But, honestly, I needed a good call. I was working on a soon-to-be Ill-fated pilot. Before that it was a brief and ill-fated stay on an otherwise successful ABC show. And before that I launched a brief and ill-fated series for Fox. And before that I worked on a… brief and ill-fated series for Fox.

We see a pattern.

Buffy was good. Can we talk about Buffy?

Problem is – Buffy was a long time ago. She lives on –- Season 8 soon to be in comic book form… But, in my nightmares, I’m 90 at a Buffy convention, and nobody wants my autograph. They’re all in line to see virtual Joss, who has invented a way to put his brain in a jar on a floaty thing, live forever and be funnier and more prolific than everybody for THE REST OF ALL TIME. I love Joss, but it’s hard being his friend.

Man, that woman comes off as a serious whiner. There's a reason Joss is super popular in the fandom and everyone wants his autograph - he created the series (and two other good ones, Firefly beings his best, but that's my own personal). She was merely a writer on one of them - did she write for the other two? - and not a very good one at that. I don't remember liking anything she did for BTVS. She was like the John Shiban of that show for me. I saw her name on an episode and I knew it was going to SUCK.

I'm personally glad I [b]didn't[/b] notice Marti Noxon's name in the credits. She brought so much suck to Buffy that I'd have been predisposed to view this episode in the worst possible light--not that I was terribly entertained anyhow.

Meredith pulled through. Yay? Surprised? Not so much.

On the other hand Denny and Dyland were fun to see.
