This is probably one of the most riveting television series I have ever watched. The characters are all very believable and you get addicted to watching this programme with dramatic moments salted with humorous and funny moments. An endearing show.
I came to Grey's Anatomy a little late, as in the UK the only terrestrial channel it's broadcast on is one I couldn't get for years. Luckily, I managed to catch the last half dozen episodes of Series 2, and I was hooked, even though I hate hospital shows. I could never get into ER (even with the incentive of George Clooney) and don't even get me started on the home-grown stuff.
So what attracted me to Grey's Anatomy? Yes, it's glossy. Yes, it's gloopy. Yes, Meredith is probably one of the most annoying characters on TV. Yes, Derek is interminably dull. BUT, there's more to the show than that. I'm going to go all out here and compare Grey's Anatomy to a Dickens novel, in that it's not the 'main' characters you should concentrate on, or be interested in, because they're not the best ones. It's the ones slightly on the outside, who have more interesting personalities going on, they're the people to get involved with.
For example, Cristina is always hilarious, so cynical and smart and competitive - in this series, she finds her relationship with Burke getting trickier to navigate, and she's still determined to be the best surgeon in Seattle (probably in the world!). Izzie's character has been deepened with her attraction to Denny, a dying heart patient, and this will have knock-on effects for following series (for better or worse). Katherine Heigl plays her with loads of heart and loads of vigour, and I really like what she does.
Similarly, George is fabulous, he makes me laugh all the time, but as well he grows up this series, realising he has to stop lusting after Meredith, someone who'll never feel the same way about him. The progression of the character is really well done, while retaining the loveable George we all loved from Series 1. Alex, too, starts to grow up a little, which is good - he couldn't remain the 'baddie' of the piece forever.
Bailey is excellent, but then she always is, and it's touching to see her worry about whether she'll be respected as a surgeon when she becomes a mother. The scenes with her and George during the 'disaster' episodes are lovely.
Grey's manages to blend heart-warming schmaltz with hard-hitting scenarios, raising lots of moral questions every episode, so you can join in and decide who's right and who's wrong. It's easy to watch visually, but not always mentally, and that's why it's a show I am willing to keep following. I like the combination of attractive cast members, thoughtful stories and great acting, not to mention the brilliant music choices throughout the show. Just let yourself be drawn in and you won't want to leave Seattle Grace!
Having recently purchased this DVD after watching season 1 i have to say you won't be disappointed. Alot of ongoing Tv dramas often get worst as season's pass but not Grey's anatomy.
This season is spectactular, there are four episodes that could could be the finale over and over. Disc 2/3 episodes were there is a code black in seattle grace are heart- stopping. Episodes 21/22 are equally as good, Also episode 22 is a cliffhanger, you have to watch season 3 to discover the fate of meredith and mcdreamy's relationship.
Brilliant Tv series definitely recommend!
P.s. alot of the reviews consider the disc episodes confusing- Region 2 DVD(UK,etc) episode 1 is the finale of season 1, it's something to do with the way the season aired in U.S. so episode 2 is the true start of season 2. Personally i think it's good as you get a quick recap of the first season.
Another great season of Grey's and if it's possible, I think I might love it even more than season one. Several of the episodes had me on the edge of my seat. Great acting, great stories and gorgeous Mc Dreamy!
Grey's Anatomy is one of those rare things - a medical show enjoyed by medics! And yes, I am a medic (promise!) It brings back many memories of being a junior doctor and working horrendous hours, yet also the sense of camaraderie that is summed up so well by George when he's telling Callie about joining the "family". Although we never had quite as many dramas as they seem to have. But more than the sense of nostalgia that it evokes in me is the admiration at the skill with which human relationships and interactions are observed. The directors and writers have done this in a wonderful, often subtle way which is sadly lacking in so many of todays programmes. So hooray for Grey's Anatomy, roll on series 3 (I know it's on Living but we're a Sky free zone here!)
I fell in love with the first season of Grey's Anatomy and this series is no exception. The storylines will leave you rushing to watch the next episode and the characters will draw you in and won't let you go. I highly recommend this DVD, it's highly entertaining, dramatic and is one hell of a rollercoaster ride. Once you get on you won't want the ride to end.
I like Grey's Anatomy and will be watching from Season 1 through to Season 11 again over the holidays (sad I know) and apart from the occasional " special " episode (eg the musical episode) will no doubt enjoy the seasons all over again.
The second series starts off exactly where the first one ended, but, given the circumstances, Meredith isn't always at the fore of the action and the storylines. The mix between relationships, hospital drama and surgery, and humour is just right and makes for entertaining viewing. As usual, some of the medical cases explored are completely bizarre, but this just adds to the appeal of this show. A successful second series is always difficult to pull off, and considering the popularity of the first series, there was a high expectation of this series. It manages however, to be just as entertaining, because of the fast pace of the drama and the witty interaction between the characters. Therefore viewers will not be disappointed.
Love it, love it, love it. Brilliant series, which just seems to getbetter and better. I can`t get enough of Greys anatomy, and I would recommend this to anyone. Lovely acting, good looking guys, what more can you ask for. I just keep buying the series as I am totally addicted. There is nothing to dislike at all. Perfect.
