Question: What are your thoughts on the new Grey's Anatomy additions of Jackson and April? I know Grey's fans have been very vocal about how useless they are. I however never saw what the big deal was till the episode in which our residents became attendings for a day. I noticed that when Cristina didn't answer questions, I was upset and heartbroken to see her so helpless, and when Alex and Meredith rocked their surgeries I felt proud.
