Product Description

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, including 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.

Just when you wanted to say "Oh no, not another hospital drama," Grey's Anatomy turns into one of the most addicting series on television. With no big stars and no hype, the ABC series debuted last spring as a mid-season replacement and became a bonafide smash in its nine-episode season.

The series, a hybrid of House's medical detectives and Dawson's Creek's hormones and catchy pop-rock soundtrack, follows five competitive surgical interns at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital. There's optimistic ex-model Izzie (Katherine Heigl), bumbling do-gooder George (T.R. Knight), competitive glacier Cristina (Sandra Oh), cocky womanizer Alex (Justin Chambers), and the show's namesake, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), whose medical career is complicated by her famous surgeon mother who now lives with Alzheimer's, and her frowned-upon relationship with another surgeon, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey, enjoying the best career revival since Rob Lowe). The doctors juggle romance and foster friendships while trying not to stab each other in the back over surgeries.

Grey's Anatomy's first season, while entertaining, went a little far trying to find its groove, overdosing on Meredith's overly simplistic voice-overs ("At the end of the day… faith is a funny thing"), and musical montages. It has the usual trappings of a hospital drama (unusual cases, such as the patient with the 70-pound tumor, and trysts in the on-call room), but with more warm fuzzies and light touches. (Sometimes, a little too light--the opening credits sequence features an eyelash curler next to medical instruments and red-painted toes savorting with a male patient under a sheet)

Pompeo, who can sound just like Renee Zellweger if you close your eyes, is likeable but not strong enough of a presence compared to her co-stars. Luckily the quirky dialogue and stellar acting by the ethnically diverse cast, particularly by Chandra Wilson (Dr. Bailey, aka "the Nazi") and Oh, who won a Golden Globe for best supporting actress, more than make up for it. The DVD covers the first season's nine episodes, plus commentary on the pilot and a behind-the-scenes feature. --Ellen A. Kim

By Mr. Bey VINE VOICE on December 21, 2005

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.

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.Read more ›

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.

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!

For those of you tired of flipping through channels (or in this case, surfing the web) because nothing good is on television, look no further. Grey's Anatomy is a smart dramedy with as much wit as it has heart. The only thing more watch-able than the pretty faces are the storylines viewers will love to get tangled up in.

Season one starts out with the introduction of the show's heroin Meredith Grey [Ellen Pompeo] getting herself into a hilariously messy situation (I won't give it away, but let's just say Dr. Derek Shepard [Patrick Dempsey] looks just as good in the morning as he does in his doctor's scrubs). What happens in the first scene of the series sets the story for the rest of the season. Pompeo gives an honest performance (we never feel like she's acting, and we can't help but want her to succeed in her endeavors).

The show's supporting cast consisting of Sandra Oh paired with Isaiah Washington is one of the show's most pleasant surprises. There is a spark between these two by the second or third episode that viewers will notice (perhaps even before the writers did?) leading one to root for them to get together as well.

Other TV buffs may recognize Katherine Heigl from the now defunct (but equally as great) Roswell. Heigl plays an intern/part time model that is strong willed and intelligent. In season one there are hints of a relationship between her and fellow bad-boy intern, Alex (you may recognize him as Masimo, the goofy Italian guy from the Jennifer Lopez flick "The Wedding Planner"). Is she just what he needs to show a softer side of himself?

With smart writing and likable characters, this show has the gripping medical dilemmas of "ER," the solid camaraderie of "Friends," and the heart of "Gilmore Girls." Buy season one, and catch season two on ABC, Sunday nights at 10:00 PM.
