After watching this season's finale, I have to say that it was one of the most intense and suspenseful finales the show has ever had.
Of course, they did it in typical Grey's fashion where some crucial characters had near-death experiences or were killed off the show. But this time, death came at the hands of a vengeful Mr. Clark, whose wife was quickly terminated by the doctors when she was determined to be brain dead. Death on the show is usually uncontrollable and unavoidable, but this was one of the few times that it was controlled, and that it was avoidable.
Let me start off by saying that it was a pretty good way to kill off secondary characters that they didn't need anymore from Mercy West. Gone are Reed and Charles, and if you asked me, they should've gotten rid of April, too. Almost dead are Alex, Owen, and of course, Derek. At the beginning when Mr. Clark had run into Reed asking for directions, I was definitely not expecting her to be shot point blank. A few seconds later, Alex was shot and the stage was set for the rest of the night.
I freakin' adore this show. Grey's made me laugh and cry at the same time. Yes, it is kinda dull because of the confusing relationships they have. (come on! soon, it will be very confusing who dated who first before who dated who)
But the story, how the story progresses, the sad and inspiring medical stories.... who wouldn't love this show. Seriously, after watching this for a long time, I just wanna be a surgeon when I grow up. Haha! The only bad thing about this show is that they killed Izzie and George... the best characters of GA. I just loved them and when they died, gah... I almost stopped watching this. And Meredith is kinda annoying. Haha!
When Grey's Anatomy first came out, all of my friends were crazy about it. I, at the time, did not even want to bother watching it because I was so in love with House. I did not start watching Grey's Anatomy until 2 years ago, and ever since then I have become hooked. It is a perfect balance of medicine and drama, with something for everyone. I admit there were times where I was left scratching my head, but this show really has it all. I have laughed, cried, and experienced nearly every other emotion because of this show. I agree with the other reviewers who have said that the Izzie situation was too prolonged, I completely agree. However, that doesn't diminish the excellency of this show in my mind.
the finale was amazing and cant wait to see the new season and hopefully mandy moore comes back she did an amazing job this show is the best and hope it goes for a long time! love how its based in seattle its addictive hoping everything works out with derek and meretidth and hoping they have a new little bundle of joy this season that would be great hope the characters do alright after what happened last season cant live without this show its really great they are all quirky and fun great family show in my opinion i recommend it to anyone :) its better than er i must say!
I do not like how they have made her in the new season of grey's anatomy. It's like her friends are waiting for her to screw up and be sent to the phsyc ward again.
I know she went through a rough time after her and mark spilt up months before the shooting and she was going out with karev. Then he had to get shot I think almost losing him was a bit much for her to bear and she is a sensitive girl. I like but the way they have made her look in the first two episodes It made her look like she wasn't able to do her job and everyone was just wait for her to stuff up.
bring back her blonde hair she looks good as a blonde!!!!!!!!!
I lovvvve this show. Grey's is the best! That's all I wanted to say. i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i( way to publish it!) i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i
Though I too have my favorite classic TV shows with their endearing time-honored characters, nothing can quite compare with the all-around brilliance of this show.
It all starts with the extreme care given to crafting the scripts. The characters are given room to grow as people while still maintaining their integrity as the same characters we have gotten to know and love. Improbable situations occur and are dealt with in a very human nature, which grounds the audience and allows them to be transported to the reality of Seattle Grace/Mercy West. But perhaps most importantly, the timing of the show is superb; we, as an audience, are made to feel frustrated, annoyed, depressed, giddy, jovial and any other range of emotion you can imagine, but we are never allowed to get complacent in the good times or become detached through the bad times. The writers are able to anticipate the audience's patience with a character or storyline, and have never pushed the audience so far as to alienate them.
But the writing alone can't sustain the show or draw us so deeply into the world it creates; that is the job of the actors. Every actor on the show is brilliant. They show great complexity in their ability to express emotions without overacting or down-playing the scene, which is especially impressive under the constraint of regularly having everything but their eyes covered with surgical masks. The actors bring the characters so fully to life that as you watch the show the line between reality and fiction blurs and you are left living in their world with them.
Finally, you can't fully describe "Grey's Anatomy" without mentioning the fantastic songs the show incorporates. They truly complete the emotional journey we have been taken on.
All in all "Grey's Anatomy" is a stand-alone show however you look at it.
April: I missed a little step, one simple step. When we follow the protocols we don't skip steps. People live, simple as that. You know you're right. I probably won't be chief resident, but the checklists work. You can't tell me they don't.
Alex has really stepped up and is really great with kids even though he down places it. He'd be really great in pediatrics. I hope Arizona can help him get his job in Africa back. And, with everyone stepping on everyone else for chief who does that leave, but April and her list?
If everyone's supposed to stick with what they are excellent at... Owen: "It's what you are, just be excellent at what you are." then Owen should should choose Christina as the next Chief. She's ambitious, she saved Derrick's life under hostile conditions, she not learning anything from Teddy that she didn't already know.
grey's anatomy is an really great drama series one of abc's best shows in my opinion. It is worth watching without a question and i would recommend it to anyone who wants to start watching a new show. it is a very good choice especially if someone likes medical cases but romance as the main character of the show. the writers have managed to combine the patient's cases with the doctor's personal lives with great success. However in my opinion the best seasons were 2 and three and the latest one 7 even though was out of track at first is back in the game after the success of the 6th season.
In the first two seasons we really couldn't help but love this show. Unfortunately it has grown silly and boorish.
I had the opportunity to meet Patrick Dempsey in person and was very let down.
During the writers strike his hair was grown out and he was wearing sun glasses in the most unlikely place. Much more handsome in person by the way... When I didn't recognize him and asked him his name he appeared surprised, then for the rest of the day he snubbed me. Celebs complain about being bothered by fans constantly: but suddenly when they aren't recognized they get very upset.
His personal attitude was a huge disappointment.
We can now refer to him as MC Dusty.
Christina proudly practices insubordination, Derek has a massive hissy fit, Alex likes "guys," and Meredith becomes yet more unimportant as her winy supporting characters awkwardly throw themselves at the camera.
Firstly, what is with Bailey's flashy new hair style? What's with the Alex/Meredith my-guy/your-guy stupidness? It is utterly out of character, and Alex had a role in the storyline solely because he banged Addison a few seasons back - but that doesn't mean he should randomly be her lapdog. I found it disturbed that Derek's patient was ALWAYS wearing make-up, whether or not she was in surgery. Her husbands remark of "save her, we can always make another baby," was strangely undeliberated, insensitive, unhesitant, and lacked any of the character development that would require such an opinion/commitment. Addison's trigger-happy "Dammit, I have to remove the baby!" was redundant, the childish yelling, and Derek's hissy-fit was all just very, very odd. Christina's rude, strange, know-it-all storyline was random, as was the old surgeon (her strange shrieking), and their demands that she retire (especially Owen's. Seriously, it was all just too random and forward of them).
I'm sorry peoples, but this episode was weak. I personally thought it looked frighteningly like Private Practice.
Love it but did not appreciate that the script included the subtitle "Thank god" NO CAP on GOD...... what is that all about? God is a name, since when do we not capitalize names? It stuck out to me more than the scene itself. Who does that? Whose decision is it to not capitalize the name of God? I never understood why someone takes the time to write God into a script as a slang term associated with the word damn and now you use His name appropriately as if giving thanks for an operation well done and don't bother to refer to Him as a person but more like a thing.
First question: Why make an ensomble cast if only 1 person ever gets what they want??
I know the show is named after her, but does she always have to know the right thing to say, get the good operations??
And it's somewhat annoying how she seems to know more then the experienced doctors.
Second beef, is Izzy. I love her charecter and she is gorgous. But never gets put in make-up, cause lets face it, she would out shine Merideth! But come-on, it's a little too obvious!!!
There is hope though, just requires less formula and Merideth always saving the day!!
I was pleasantly surprised by season one of Grey's Anatomy. I'll admit I hated it at first but it grew on me and I ended up really liking it. It has a convinent time slot that doesn't conflict with anything else I watch and Sandra Oh is a great actress. The writing is good but I could do without the constant narration by Meridith Grey. We don't really need her deep thoughts on everything. The best hospital drama on right now, even topping ER.
When I saw previews for this, I was appaled. I saw exactly what watching the first few episodes confirmed. If you took scrubs and removed the humor, you would have a drama called Grey's Anatomy.
Sadly, it was even worse than I had predicted. The cast is laughable, and the writing is so bad it is kinda funny. The plot is terrible, the setting is overused, and really, the timing couldn't be worse.
Trying to fill a void that ER did for many people, and trying to come in on the success of younger, newer doctors, like Scrubs, and of course trying to be that next medical show that works...with many failed like Medical Investigation, this show is nothing more than a calculated media hitter.
Sadly it worked in terms of ratings, replacing a far better show in the same timeslot, Boston Legal.
Don't feed the formula spewing directors and networks. Let them make a nother dozen crappy medical shows, but certainly let this one go with them, it certainly deserves it.
Actually I loved this show at the beginning. We loved the Derek and Meredith roller-coaster ride with each other and when the officially came together we held our hands tightly and hope that they would kiss at the end of their first date. There was one problem though 'his wife showed up' and reality stepped in. If you were like me you stood up and shouted at the screen wondering how the first series could end so abruptly and wondering how could Derek, you know, Mc. Dreamy ever be married and carry on that love affair with Meredith. Then we met Addison and even though we wanted to hate her, we fell for her occasional jokes and calm way about her. We learnt about her affair with Mark and got past it, and lived with Dr. Shepherd's occasional hurtful words towards an often forgiving Addison. His over boastful, egotistical placed its uproar on screen. He juggled two hearts on screen and slowly the show plummeted. Addison was horribly treated by her husband and to imagine if she had not gone to Seattle, he would still be married hooking up with Meredith not even having the decency to out when all odds were against him. Reality steps in and Addison is gone and slowly Grey's Anatomy lost the appeal they once had. We formed connections with each character, although I seemed to have loved Addison the most. Grey's Anatomy does not glue me to the screen as it did in the first two seasons. I dislike most of the characters now, since I felt the only reason I watched the end of Season two was because of Addison. Don't really tune into the show anymore, everything is like a soap opera, which seems too redundant for my appeal.
Greys anatomy is a pretty mainstream show, it can really turn into one of those shows that just goes toooo far, in the wrong direction. Things are getting fuzzier and duzzier, nothing is getting any clearer. I think my agree with me that is was the funky hunky mcDreamy who has from the beginning kept the show together, we ladies just sitt there and say "pick meeeeeee!"
Loved the show in the beginning, the first two seasons, the cases were interesting and all the characters were funny and relatable in some way. I'm sorry, Grey's Anatomy, you better pick it up before the show goes down.
And I was so sorry to hear that Addison was to start another show. And if the ep when Addison goes to Los Angeles was a preview of how it's going to be in that show I will not see it.
I really hope the show becomes better soon, it was something to look forward to in the weeks. And mcDreamy cannot leave Meredith! Then I will definetly stop watching!
For 3 seasons, 'Grey's' was a must watch for me. I actually gave it priority over Scrubs on my DVR series recording, but after last season, I gave up. I was sick of the whining, the everyone trying to get in each other's pants and the fact NO ONE on the show was EVER happy and the minute you thought maybe, just maybe, they could be, the writer's would dash your hopes. This season, I removed 'Grey's' from my DVR completely and while every once in a while I wonder what is happening to George and Izzy and the crew at Seattle Grace, I'm going to stick with JD and crew over at Sacred Heart. I seriously can't believe that I gave up a whole, wonderful season of Scrubs to watch this dribble last year.
I must admit that i have not always watched Greys Anatomy and only got hooked a few weeks back, but i was surprised because it seemed that i had already seen it all before on a turkish program called doctorla (doctors). Everything from the chicken cutting surgeon Preston, to the 8.7 million being given to Izzie. I thought that this was an original storyline and new to screens but how wrong could i have been. There really is no need to watch this programme as i am up to date with the other one. What i hope is that this is a mistake and the Turks have taken the script from Greys because the shame in an Amercian TV Show having to copy from a Turkish one is a bit shameful.
Grey's started out really good, showing the ups and downs of complicated relationships..... the pains, the joys,...but after the writers strike, it just seems to be nothing but sex. And the homo show last night was off the edge.
last night's show (May 8) was terrible. I can't believe they're bringing in homosexuality. There used to be a story line mixed in with all the sex, but it was missing last night. I know sex sells, but come on...isn't there a limit??? I know there's homosexuality out there, but I don't want to watch it. I'm very sorry Grey's has gone in that direction. it's too bad.... it's such a controvercial subject, can't Grey's just stay away from it and stick to medicine? There's already enough sex in the show, lets keep the show interesting by keeping an actual story line going
I started watching Grey's on DVD. In two weeks, I had watched the first 2 seasons. I was hooked! The 3rd season wasn't up to par, but at this point, I'd love to get something closely resembling that season back. The new characters are fine, except for Erica, who I don't like. But the old characters aren't even likable anymore. Instead of being the funny, sure of herself person, Christina has turned into an obnoxious, suck-up, with no personality (and that started BEFORE Burke left) who is so "honored" to be in presence of Erica. Izzie is no longer the sweet, caring, lovable one, but a jealous competitor, who went from grieving over the death of the "love of her life" to being in love with her best friend in a matter of a few weeks. Meredith, who was once everyone's friend, has been so hateful to her half-sister, which I found so at odds with her character. Although in the 1st season this wasn't an issue, she now has severe abandonment issues and can't even have an honest relationship with her psychiatrist. Alex and George haven't changed all that much, but I'm tired of George's "whining". He should have grown by now. And even Bailey's lost her edge, which is what made her Bailey. The storylines have become ridiculous, including the homosexuality scene the other night. Grey's has always had a great following. But if this boring trash continues, I know one follower that will be turning the channel on Thursday nights.
I like this show,and it have been at the top of my list ever since i saw the first episode, but it have lost a little of its charm. It doesnt really hold up anymore, but is good enough to watch when i dont have anything better to do. And many of the characters kind of lost the respect they once had with me, especially Meredith- shes just a piece of work. Its sad though, she was one of my favorites from de start. And it was really overkill to make George and Izzie somewhat of a couple, that just had it. Way to many no's in there. Not sure if this show will be anything for me to follow anymore, theres just so many better shows to kill time with out there. Although there is still some jokes in there that makes me laugh, but it doesnt really make up for it.
I find it amazing to be in this minority but i feel this has come from the dumbing down of television. I can understand the need for a light hearted view of hospital life. However, this show from ABC heads in that direction with almost an identical rip off of Scrubs, with narrations, musical moments, and even some of the same jokes and situations.
Now the reason i state that there is danger coming is ABC is trying to sweep the ratings now with a bold move to Thursdays next season. if i am correct, they are aiming to bring 'Grey's' to the nine o'clock slot which is already the most competitive. PArt of me is pleased with this seeing as how there won't be a cheat on ratings for all the desperate housewives viewers being trickled into the ten o'clock spot where Grey's resides now. This could very well be the downfall of the show and i believe it is high time for it. The other shows on at that time deserve much more credit than Grey's.
I still can't believe that this show is on the air. The writers have to know how bad some of their ideas are when they are coming up with them. At times i feel like they just went and filmed the first draft. I mean seriously, if an intern stole a heart, the interrogation wouldn't lose focus and become a therapy session. Not only that, there would be many more people in that room from all areas of the hospital. and let's not forget the sudden changes in character behavior. It's almost as if no one knows the priorities in a hospital. I'll tell you one thing. If i were to find myself a patient in that hospital, you would find me wheeling myself out of there within five minutes. Why would i want to seek aide in a hospital that puts all of the focus on the doctors first and then the patients.
Season 4 the show started on the wrong path.first after both Addison and Dr. Burke leaving the show they had to find many stories. Bringing Lexie onto the show would be fun. however I really was hoping to see Merideth be more independant this season and not so caught up in hating lexie. I think they should have had at least one episode where Burke came back. I think he needed to leave the show but they way he left felt incomplete. this season was given a much needed break with the writer's strike. I was "seriously" considering leaving the show after the break. However I felt it was necessary to stick around for the rest of the season. Those 5 or 6 episodes after the strike were awesome. I am going to buy the season 4 DVD set just for those few episodes. To me those previous epsidoes never happened. I cna't wait for season 5!
I gave this show multiple chances and it is just one of the worst things I have ever seen. All I saw was sex sex sex, what is this supposed to be. Another thing is they steal everything from ER, M*A*S*H, and other hospital shows. Would it kill the writers to be original for once. Take out some of the sex and come up with some good storylines, and then I'll give it a better review. Until then If you want to lose an hour of your life then Greys Anatomy is the show for you. If you like good hospital shows then watch ER, Scrubs, M*A*S*H, St. Elsewhere, or any other hospital show other than this one
I have to admit from the get-go that I have difficulty watching medical shows because, being in the business, they (any and all of them) never get it right. And I suppose in reality they shouldn't even try.
But this is a horrible representation of even a fantasy medical world. It has been my experience that most nurses and/or doctors have neither the time nor the inclination to be screwing each other in the linen room. These "professionals" on the other hand, apparently find that medicine is interfering with their lives...
It is also beyond a stretch to have these doctors jumping disciplines all over the place to accommodate a story line and satisfy some dramatic component that best shows off their hairdo. I doesn't happen. Thats why specialists are specialists and put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into becoming one.
I don't mind artistic license, but I do mind that a show calls itself medical and apparently forgot to budget for medical advisors. Poor form.
This episode had four tiny saving graces that wove through the rest of the mindless drivel. They were the two small interactions between Mark and Lexie; the moments where Cristina and Hunt pushed their personal boundaries; Cassie and Arizona tripping and falling through the beginning of what is hopefully going to be a relationship; and Izzie, who finally discovers what is happening to her and uses it to teach the interns. The rest of the time was a waste of air space. I realize that this is fiction, but Derek going psycho in his imitation of Dr. Mengele was impossible to believe. It was especially unbelievable considering that it was set off because an aneurism blew during a clipping. Sorry GA writers, but that is one of the risks of that surgery. Meredith's opening and closing dialogue about doctors v gods, only made it worse. I'm unsure why anyone through a public fist fight between two grown men would be fun to watch. If they had to go to blows, it should have been in private, though a surgeon who takes chances like that with his hands isn't much of a surgeon. I realize it was the last straw for Derek, but it was carried to the ridicules. I've read in the Writers Blog how thrilled they were to have Faye Dunaway as a guest star. It was unfortunate they didn't use her better. The story line was boring and made Cristina look like an ass. Lastly, what in the world are they doing to Bailey? They've taken a strong, wonderful character and turned her into a weak, indecisive woman with a bad hair style. Give us back the old Bailey! Let her become an attending! She would kick ass at it. Let the show grow.
What was amazing the first two seasons has crashed and burnt. So sad, did the writers change? What happened?
That being said: I met Patrick Dempsey and didn't recognize him, for the rest of the day, I got brushed off lol Not too impressive. I've met a lot of celebs and he really doesn't have it in person. He is much better looking in person though. As for his character in the show. He now gets the title " MC Dusty"
While ABC is canceling shows like Men in Trees and Dirty Sexy Money, what's the deal!?
I'd like to be a fly on the wall and hear the inside conversations over at ABC, What could possibly be the method to their madness?
Right when they had regained my respect?
