After a somewhat disappointing season 2 of this Emmy Award-winning series, season 3 finally saw Meredith and the rest of the Seattle Grace interns fall into place (for personal and work reasons). After a life-changing season two finale in Izzy's case, she now has to find out if she can go on as she did before after everything that happened, and Meredith has a decision to make.
As always, the episode story lines never fail to entertain and have the viewer on the edge of their seat, and it is a true tear-jerker in some places. The soundtrack is fabulous, with many choices coming from obtuse bands that no one's heard of (with a few exceptions).
Having ordered this at the same time as season two about a month ago, it was terrible having to sit through season two after reading the generic spoiler-free episode descriptions on the disc cases. I don't recommend doing this, as you'll then rush through the rest of the season two and possibly miss things as I did, resulting in having to go back and watch it again.
I would recommend this to EVERYONE, but only if you have the stomach for gore as, although it's mainly kept to a minimum, it is the worst season (that I've seen) so far on this level.
