    Season 5 of Grey's Anatomy was just as good as ever. The beginning of the season sarted off a little slow but as the season progressed I fell in love with some of the episodes. The Izzie-Denny story appeared wierd at first but as soon as I figured out that she was seriously sick my heart broke for Izzie and I completely understood what was going on. Season 5 was packed with MerDer scenes which always manage to put a smile on my face, except when McDreamy decides to be a McAss and call Meredith an unfixable lemon. But he got back on my good side with his adorable elevator proposal which was one of the best moments of the season and in geys history. And then who can forget the post it wedding which was perfect for Meredith and Derek. Alex and Izze had some good moments this season as well and I really do enjoy them togther. The finale of season 5 was a complete shocker to me. When John Doe was tracing 007 in Mer's hand it clicked right away...John Doe is George. And then Izzie started coding and viewers we left wondering who would live? Breathtaking finale and amazing season. Expand

    Grey's Anatomy is the best television show of the 21st century. 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. Expand

    Amazing. All the season, all the roles, everything was perfect. The best acting ever for a TV show for the entire cast: Ellen Pompeo in "Stairway to Heaven", Dempsey in "I Will Follow You Into the Dark"and "Stand By Me", Sandra Oh in "Elevator Love Letter", Heighl in "Stand By Me", Chambers in "Now or Never", Wilson in "Stairway to Heaven", Pickens Jr. in "No Good at Saying Sorry", T.R. Knight in "Here Comes the Flood", Sharon Lawrence in No Good at Saying Sorry", Tyne Daly in "Sympathy for the Devil", etc, etc, etc.
    The show's best season finale, with a twisty event ending the season with the epic "OO7.. it's george.. John Doe is George" of Meredith..
    AMAZING!!

  1. It returns with an emotional and surprising (hint: you'll never look at icicles the same way) premiere.

    It's still the Meredere (or Deremere) show, and Cristina's right. It's just ... so ... over.
  3. The Grey's Anatomy writers acknowledge last season's ratings decline by offering a parallel plot that finds Seattle Grace's ranking as a teaching hospital suffering in tonight's entertaining and ridiculous-in-the-regular-Grey's-ways two-hour season premiere.
