Product Description

The cleverly written series follows five first-year interns and their supervisors at Seattle Grace Hospital as they train to become the future generation of surgeons. We witness them juggling their careers with love dilemmas, family issues and relationships. Ellen Pompeo (Catch Me If You Can, Old School) stars as Meredith Grey, the daughter of a renowned surgeon and former employee at the hospital, as she struggles to fulfil her own ambitions in her mothers formidable shadow. Along with her fellow interns, Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigle), George O'Malley (T.R Knight), Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) and the feisty Cristina Yang, played by the Award Winning Sandra Oh, she is thrown into hospital life at the deep end. She must all deal with life and death situations whilst trying to maintain a grip on her personal life. The intense drama of day-to-day life in the hospital is matched with intelligent dialogue, sexy antics and plenty of giggles.

With relationships and personal dramas adding to the pressure of becoming successful doctors, Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), a senior doctor nicknamed "The Nazi" is on hand to whip the interns into shape. Working along-side her is the flirtatious and talented Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), an established doctor whose attraction to Meredith makes working life complicated for them both.

From Amazon.co.uk

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.

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. --Ellen A.

As I am writing this review, it is half past six in the morning. I am incredibly tired and have to work in 2 hours, but I still can't go to sleep. When I bought this DVD I had heard that the series was pretty good and I thought that I would watch an episode every now and then until I completed the box set. However, I have now completed the entire series in one night and I am so desperate to know what happens next that I have come onto Amazon to order the next DVD.

Just when you thought you had seen enough medical drama on TV to make you practically a qualified doctor, along comes Grey's Anatomy which makes it all seem new and exciting once more and connects you on a deeper level to the main characters than all of those previous shows.

It has the pace and drama of ER, but somehow manages to find time to explore the personalities and lives of the thoughtfully written doctors on such a level that you become transfixed by them and feel you are right there by their sides in the hospital. The move to focus the series on interns was especially inspired, as this brings a whole new dimension to the story. They are all competing against each other for the same goal, yet need each other to survive along the way and the closer they get to their dreams, the harder reality becomes.

Whilst they want to learn, the lessons are not always pleasant and push them out of their comfort zone as both doctors and people. However, in this tough world there is no time to stop and process the information, as there are new patients, new problems and if they even think of standing still for just one moment they could realise how unbelievably confused and frightened they are.

The more they all struggle to shut out their emotions, the more they become consumed by them.

I study, work, go to the gym and to the cinema, and still have some extra time to watch tv. Truth to be told, I don't have that much extra time, so I like to take advantage of it by watching only series that are very good. "Grey's anatomy" is simply excellent :)

The plot is not overly complicated, but what really makes this show different, when comparing it to others, is the superb cast and of course the great storylines. "Grey's anathomy" tells us about the lives of five surgical interns: Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), "Izzie" Stevens (Katherine Heigl), Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), George O'Malley (T.R. Knight ) and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers). Moreover, we also get to know about their teachers, teachers that in the case of Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) and Dr. Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington) become much more than that.

In one of the many episodes that this dvd has, Meredith says that "We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beats the hell out of never trying". Please give this dvd a try as soon as it is released. You won t regret it! Of course, highly recommended...

I have just read the 28 customer reviews posted before this one and find it remarkable that 27 of these give the DVD five stars and only one drops it down to four.

For me, that says everything you need to know. What can I do but add to the praise that has been given before? For me the best feature is the chemistry between Meredith Grey and Dr McDreamy, but the episodes when those two don't feature are just as good in a different way.

Here in the UK we are just coming towards the end of Series 2 on Five, but I have still pre-ordered the DVD and can't wait for Series 3 to start. This is a show you have to see. Personally I was distraught to hear that Ellen Pompeo became engaged just last November. I was convinced she was waiting for me, but, hey, that's the way life goes!

Just one technical point. From what I can gather Series 1 was originally only nine episodes, which would have been covered by the first two discs, the second of which includes some rather feeble extras, but fortunately for us there are another five episodes on disc 3 and the ending at that point is just as effective, although not one I personally like! It's just as well I have seen Series 2 on TV...

I bought this after hearing about it from so many people but never seeing it on the TV. I am now addicted and need to purchase the other series. Great viewing, even my teenage daughter is hooked.

I work hard and have VERY little time to sit myself infront of the TV!!

However greys anatomy has changed this completely!!!

I first stumbled accross greys anatomy when it was on channel 5 (after house) and sure enough i have been hooked...so much so i even went and brought SKY tv so that i can watch the second series on LIVING tv!!!

I love house as a TV show but Greys anatomy has more TENSION, ROMANCE and stories about what happens within the relationships of the interns!

THIS IS NO NORMAL HOSPITAL DRAMA SHOW... I HAVE EVEN MANAGED TO GET MY FRIENDS AND MY BOYFRIEND COMPLETELY HOOKED ON IT!!!..... I am also re-arranging my life to make sure NOT ONE episode is missed by myself!!!!

THE DVD WAS BROUGHT FOR ME FOR MY BIRTHDAY... AND WHAT A GREAT SERIES TO HAVE... I HAVE WATCHED ALL THREE CDs AT LEAST 3 TIMES.... GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY... I WOULD HAVE SOLD MY GRANNY TO OWN THIS dvd COLLECTION!!!

GO AND BUY IT NOW .... AND I PRIOMISED YOU WILL BE HOOKED BEFORE EPISODE 2!!!

roll on series 2 on DVD!!!
