    A mixed bag. Diagnosis: Some good dialogue, but it also suffers from a mild case of predictability.

    There are bright spots here, including Pompeo's skillful performance and the surprisingly touching relationship between Meredith and her mother, a renowned surgeon. But to be worthy of study, Grey's Anatomy needs more of a brain.

    So far Grey's Anatomy is groping for a balance between over-the-top nuttiness and heartstring plucking drama; it lands awkwardly in the dram-edy category. If it would stop trying to be droll and ironic (this is no "Scrubs"), it just might make the cut. [27 March 2005, p.F01]

    Ultimately, there's nothing new about the bones of Grey's Anatomy. Somebody needs to reinvent the hospital drama, stat.

    The kind of TV product that's so instantly recognizable you feel like you've already dreamed it from premiere to finale. It might as well be over before it really starts.

I love the interactions between all the characters and the acting is great. My favorite moment of the season was the arrival of addison. I still see that moment as one of the biggest game changers and shockers ever to happen in the seven seasons that Grey's has been on the air. Full Review »

The medical drama collaborates drama with romance, comedy and even a bit of medicine manages to get in the mix! The chemistry between the cast members is phenomenal especially the long-standing relationship between Ellen Pompeo's character Meredith Grey and Patrick Dempsey's character Derek Shepherd. They have a presence that makes the viewer feel warm and themselves as actors have an exceptional chemistry, personally two of my favourite actors. Also the friendship between Meredith and Sandra Oh's character Cristina is welcoming and comedic. It has a great storyline thanks to the amazing creator Shonda Rhimes. Full Review »

    This concept has been done before, and much better too. Let's put pretty people in scrubs and put ridiculous scenarios in front of them.This concept has been done before, and much better too. Let's put pretty people in scrubs and put ridiculous scenarios in front of them. Being in the medical field, I find this insulting the intelligence of Americans. I just hope people don't think this crap mimics reality(except maybe the sleeping around). Pass, pass, pass. Full Review »
