GREY'S ANAMTOMY is "a winner," raves the New York Daily News. Both a critical hit and fan favorite, season one burst onto the television landscape with gripping plot lines, a sensational soundtrack, and hot stars, includin... more »g Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, and Sandra Oh. Now you can experience all the drama, romance, and excitement of GREY'S ANATOMY from the very beginning. Meet Meredith Grey, a brilliant first-year surgical intern at Seattle Grace Hospital. Together with her fellow residents in training, Meredith navigates her way through the daily traumas and social landmines of life inside the hospital and out in the real world. GREY'S ANATOMY is a smart and witty look at young people struggling to be doctors and doctors struggling to stay human.« less
According to this series, interns spend a good deal of time searching for people to have intercourse with and interesting places in which to conduct this activity. Less licking and grappling between the genders and more attention to the medical side of internship would have been appropriate.
For someone who is supposed to be "brilliant," Meredith Grey certainly makes some dumb personal decisions. Having a parent with Alzheimer's would be upsetting and difficult to deal with, but Meredith has taken on the role of low grade martyr by making such a secrecy issue of it. As for her continuing affair with boss Dr. Derek Shepherd, it seems unlikely that after sweating through college and medical school, brilliant Meredith would thoughtlessly risk her upcoming career in such a manner.

I have just recently begun to enjoy this show and it's addictive. I think the earlier episodes are the best - although I enjoy them all.

One Of 2005's Best New Shows
Mr. Bey | Riverside, CT United States | 12/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I'm a huge fan of medical dramas and originally I really didn't see how this show could differ itself from any other average medical show. I got hooked in the first five minutes and I've been watching ever since. Now that ER is sort of past its prime Grey's Anatomy can easy claim the title as the best medical drama on television.
What really differs the show from any other medical show I've seen is the character development. The character development helped keep me interested and I felt I got to know Meredith and the other interns. I also got a feel for the hardships being an intern is and how much work goes into becoming a doctor. You also get a feeling of connection with the interns because of how much we find out about them. Dr. Shepherd, Dr. Bailey, and Dr. Burke help them along the way and offer some good advice. It's very informative and I've learned a few things watching it.
Overall I think Grey's Anatomy is one of the best and most addictive shows on TV right now. This DVD is a great way to see it from the beginning and it's priced right and I highly recommend it. "
LOVE THE SHOW; DISAPPOINTED IN DVD

"I was turned onto the show by my sister and only started watching it in the second season. Fortunately, the network started running the series over on Thursday nights so I was able to watch it all from the beginning. It's the best writing on TV today. So I bought the DVD to watch while on the treadmill. Imagine my disappointment when I started watching the DVD and since I had just started the series on Thursday nights, I could spot right away that some of the episodes are abridged. I don't know why they did this. I would have been very confused, I think, had I not seen the original Episode 2 The First Cut is the Deepest, and not understood how Meredith ended up at the nursery watching the babies and how she ended up carrying the severed "appendage" around all day and night. George's part was almost entirely cut out. They should have left the episodes intact."

"I'm an ICU nurse. After spending 12 hr stretches in the hospital, watching people in a hospital is not my idea of a good time; but, omg, I love this show! The chemistry between the characters is great. I am completely hooked. You can't even get me to go into work for incentive pay on a Sunday night now! Forget about it. And, should I even run into Dr. "McDreamy" in an elevator, I'm going to do just what Meredith did!"
Best Medical Drama in Years

"When I first heard about Grey's Anatomy I thought this would be another boring medical soap opera angst-fest, but it was so much more. The cast has geniuine chemistry, not just between Shepard and Meredith, but between everyone. The characters are all fantastic, with their little quirks that have us begging for more than what the 1st season offered.
The patients they see also have us wanting more from the characters. Its like ER that the patients any of the patients can die at any time. Its not cheesy in that the ones we love manage to live, because, on several occasions, they have died when its least expected.
By having an outstanding storyline (with a jaw-dropping cliffhanger) and fantastic chemistry, the show manages to stand out among the many medical dramas seen over the years. Even though the 1st season is a bit short, its still worth checking out."
The Entire Cast is Magical -- Best Show of the Season
Lit Prof | Cambridge, MA | 12/10/2005

"When teasers were first aired for this show last season, I couldn't have been less interested. I wasn't familiar with any of the main actors so no one caught my attention nor am I particularly fond of "hospital" shows. I made no effort to catch the pilot but somehow found myself in front of the television when it came on. After the first 15 minutes, I was seriously hooked and haven't dared to miss an episode since -- it's THAT good! This is the only television show I actually watch while it's airing. Normally, if I want to watch something, I'll record it for later viewing (commercials drive me crazy) but "Grey's Anatomy" is the one show I HAVE to watch along with 20+ million other people in America. I love all of the regular characters and am consistently amazed by their overall chemistry with each other. Having said that, I am especially impressed by, and adore, Sandra Oh who plays Cristina Yang. In a stellar cast, she is a standout. She's acerbic, witty, carelessly abrupt and totally unlearned in the art of diplomacy, but in her few moments of vulnerability (usually with the coolly skillful Dr. Burke or with her "sister"/close friend Meredith), she has been wonderful and touching. She deserves an Emmy -- they're all so good but she is a consistent scene stealer. Her timing and delivery are perfect. As Cristina, she always makes me laugh but she sometimes also breaks my heart. I had never seen any of Sandra's work before but am a fan of hers for life now. She and the tough but nurturing Dr. Miranda Bailey, along with sweet but awkward George O'Malley, are my absolute favorites in a cast that has melded together into a well-oiled machine. I cannot praise this show or its talented cast enough and it seems I'm not in the minority here. I'm pleased to learn that so many others love and have embraced this show and all of the flawed but endearing characters as much as I have. Can't wait for the DVDs of last season and this season. If you haven't watched this show yet, give it a chance -- more than likely, you'll be impressed."
