  • I hate recaps!!

    1.0
    Recap shows are pointless to me. If you watch all the eps who needs a recap. However with the networks having so many hiatises these days I suppose they deem it necessary. Also why does a review have to have 100 words, there isn\\\'t that much to say about a recap show. I guess that is my point entirely, why bother with recaps? I might as well recap everything I have writen here just to fill the 100 word min. Recap shows are boring, pointless and a total waste of time, just like reading this review would be to you!!!!moreless
  • Great summary of events starting from the beginning and leading up to that particular point in the season.

    I thought this was a fantastic recap episode. To be honest, this was the first episode I\'d ever seen of \"Grey\'s Anatomy\". Furthermore, it was THIS episode that sparked my interest in the show. In fact, the next day I went out and bought the first season on DVD. Anyhow, I feel they did a fine job covering the major plot points of the first two seasons, albeit brief. But then, there\'s only so much you can cram into an hour-long episode. Had it not been for this episode, I probably wouldn\'t love this show today. Some say clip shows are a waste of time. In my case, it made me love a show I may have otherwise never given a chance.moreless

    i am sorry but how dumb to they thing grey's faves are 2 recap shows in the span of nothing time. i mean i know it's "we better not put anything worth watch time cos it's not getting rated " time, but really how many times do they have to go over the characters story lines we get it!!!! that why we like the show right? it is good for late comers to the show, but as someone who watches every week to me its a waste of time and i find it really really boring and annoying no more !!moreless
  • Flashback episode, recap episode, call it whatever you want, this episode gave a rundown of the entire first and second series up until the last episode.

    9.0
    Okay let me start by saying although I\'m not a huge fan of recap episodes, I generally find them to be a waste of time, especially if you have watched every episode from the beginning, I am however a HUGE fan of Grey\'s Anatomy and I would watch the opening and closing credits of that\'s all that was available. And seeing as Grey\'s has had an extended hiatus, a recap episode will do just fine.



    What surprised me was that the episode recapped the entire show from it\'s inception, I was expecting it to only recap the second season, or even from the point of the last recap episode. Although at times I was screaming at the screen that I had already seen all of the first season clips way too many times to count, hell I knew most of the scenes off by heart (okay I\'m addicted I admit it)I did enjoy getting to see Meredith and McDreamy together again, by recapping the entire 2 seasons up until the last episode to screen with Finn appearing, we got to see everything, and it reminded me why I love this series so much. It makes me laugh, it makes me cry and it makes me scream at the screen, cursing when the 43 minutes are up.

  • A second recap after not even 40 episodes - definitely too much. It felt like a 45 min long show preview for the rest of this season

    5.0
    Although I had been quite annoyed that they had put on another recap episode on such a new show, I have to admit, I somehow enjoyed it.

    They had to cover quite a long time and a lot of events, but they managed to show the evolving of the characters and the relationships. Still, for a completely new watcher, it might have been a bit too much at once. And the line of events was not always clear.

    Yet, we got the main crossing points together and it became a bit clearer why people acted like this or like that, what caused their actions and some strings were taken up again to show that they are not finished yet. As for example Mark, who, IMO, will definitely coming back after they showed him telling Addison he loves her and that Derek is actually in love with Meredith. Their being friends was disproved as being only the eschar on a wound which was not properly put together and needs to be cut open again. The bad parts need to be taken out, what's left to be tightly sealed and then left time to heal... .

    The Izzie/Denny/Alex triangle was shown to be in need for a big crash, too. Although Alex was presented surprisingly 'nice'. He tells people what they are doing wrong when everybody just tries to be patient and nice and considerate, but actually do not really help by that. Like Izzie telling George all the time to 'go for it' and ask Meredith out - until the final desaster when they go to bed and Meredith breaks out in tears. THAT wound of George is not being treated by Callie, the 'bonebreaker' girl who knows what she wants and right now, it's George whom she wants.

    All in all, I think what made me not to dislike the episode too much is that I DO like the show and so it was a flashback of some nice scenes. BUT: I could have done that by re-watching my taped episodes either - and I wanted to see what would happen NEXT.

    So, please give us more action, not only recollection.moreless
