Product Description

It's all about the moments at Seattle Grace Hospital, life saing and life changing moments. Grey's Anatomy: The Complete Fifth Season is the relationship drama with heartfelt emotion that focuses on moments in the balance of life and death, love and relationships and astounding medical cases.


Season 5 is a pivotal one for the riveting Grey's Anatomy. The doctors at Seattle Grace Hospital bloom and show new layers, the drama meets and exceeds that of previous seasons, and the show marks an important milestone--its 100th episode--with developments that, as with all the great Grey's episodes, brim with belly laughs and moving tears.

The season gets off to a slow start, with perhaps a bit more relationship angst than even diehard fans would prefer. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek "McDreamy" (Patrick Dempsey) start out with the familiar push-pull of their love affair--but a resolution, at last, is in their future. Callie (the excellent, and newly glamorous, Sara Ramirez) wrestles with her sexual orientation. Cristina (Sandra Oh, never better) is still picking up the pieces from her ruined engagement to the departed Burke (Isaiah Washington). To help her, or maybe to throw her for another loop, the series introduces the gruff, macho military doc, Owen (one of TV's sexiest hunks, Kevin McKidd).

Yet series creator and still active writer Shonda Rhimes unveils story arcs about midway through the season which have the surgeons' operating room dramas intersecting with the characters' private lives--with waves of heartbreaking results. Fans may take issue with "Dead Denny" (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his endless visitations--complete with sex--with Izzie (Katherine Heigl)--but as the season builds, Izzie's mystery illness, and her deep love for Alex (Justin Chambers) are treated with delicacy and respect, and Denny's character both reacts and ultimately supports. There's a wedding--a fairy-tale one--celebrating the show's 100th episode, and the love of the characters, and the pain they've overcome to get there--are equal parts of the very human, very lovely, result. The season finale is among the show's best ever, with the fate of two beloved characters, George (T.R. Knight) and Izzie, left unknown and laden with sorrow. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Season Yet! 2 Nov 2009
By Bob and Billy's Mum TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Having bought Season 5 (as with all the other box sets as they are released much earlier in the US and I couldn't wait!!) from, I can honestly say this is the best season of Grey's yet.

A slow start, but once you begin to devour each episode it gathers such momentum until you reach the incredible, intense, thrilling and emeotional end, and it all loops back to the beginning of episode 1. I then had to watch it again and it was just as good 2nd time round!

Stunning performances from all the cast, great plot lines, medical dilemmas, hair issues, comic one liners, romance, tragedy, and sweeping scenery of Seattle shots - its all here.

I don't want to spoil any story for anyone, so no plot details or hints from me. But what I will say is if you (like me) can't resist an open box set, prepare to lose an entire weekend in your pyjamas. So so worth it - but now I'm desperate for season 6!!! You have been warned!!

**For those wanting to order from the US as I did - do check out the region coding on your DVD player. Mine is multi region, so I can play Region 1 (US) discs along with Region 2 (UK etc) discs. Check out the information pages on Amazon if you are in any doubt at all, and google too, as there may be a 'fix' for your player to enable multi-region discs.**

5.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it - the ending is AMAZING!!!! 6 Sep 2009
Ok ok, I know most of you will be put off by the whole Denny and Izzie thing, but believe me, there is a reason behind it and one that will shock you to the core (unless of course you have read one of the idiots who puts spoliers in everything!)

The final episode of this season is still haunting me and I cannot wait for the next series to start, although i almost don't want what I think is going to happen to indeed happen.

If you love Grey's Anatomy, you will love this series, and it's new charaters just as much, if not more, than ever before!

Wow, This has now become my favorite series despite a few gripes.

The premier introduces a new man for Christina Major Owen Hunt (played by the Scottish Actor Kevin McKidd who I didn't even twig wasn't American until I googled him) a Trauma Surgeon on leave from Iraq who becomes a main cast member later on and eventual boyfriend of Christina.

The premier was an excellent opening with the revelation that the hospital has been downgraded in the teaching rankings due to poor performance and the announcement by Webber that things are gonna change! Christina's reaction to Meredith's constant barrage of questions about whether she and Derek will work out was a brutally honest answer that I felt spoke directly to Christina as a person and showed that she will always tell the truth, even when it hurts.

The introduction and relatively speedy departure of Meredith's childhood friend Sadie, was quite boring to me. She didn't seem to add anything to the show except eye candy for the now bi-sexual Callie, however the "Scalpel-Crazy" interns brought fresh drama to the show and thankfully opened the door (so to speak) for Sadie to leave. Much as it pains me to see attractive blondes leave the show, she really annoyed me!

Onto Izzie. Yet again it seems like the writers either want Izzie to be hated or just can't put enough effort into making her likeable. I really hated the whole "Ghost Denny" storyline frustrated me from the start. Seriously? You Are a Doctor! Get a damn MRI of your head! You have something wrong! But as always Izzie reveals herself to be not only a poor excuse for a person but as a doctor too. The only sadness I felt at her cancer was for her friends who would be devastated if she died. Not for her.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Grey's so far. 6 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have reviewed a couple of the other seasons that I bought of Grey's Anatomy and am just as thrilled with Season 5. Grey's is great for taking some time to zone-out and become involved in the ups and downs of the characters of Seattle Grace. Continually strong characters will have everyone watching identifying with someone on screen and laughing/ crying with them in a little slice of time removed from reality. Everyone needs some time out and this is easy to watch and really does allow you to switch off from everything else, so highly recommended to both Grey's fans and those looking for a great addition to their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars greys anatomy season 5 16 Jun 2011
By Helen
This season includes more entertaining medical puzzles to be solved and continues to focus on relationships. Highlights of this season are the introduction of new characters including Owen Hunt, Izzies' illness and Meredith and Dereks' wedding. The season finale is of the typical Grey's Anatomy standard with a large build up and a cliff hanger to leave viewers waiting for season 7. The extras for this season are also very entertaining and worth watching as they provide added insight into the show and the actors playing characters alongside how the cast prepare for shooting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best season, but still good 2 Jun 2010
Having watched Grey's since the start and become hooked, I have to say that season five is a strange one.

The show is Grey's Anatomy, but at times one could be convinced that it has become The Izzie Stevens Show, with a lot of emphasis (complete with appearances by the annoying Denny, who still manages to be annoying in death) on one of Seattle Grace's least likeable characters.

What I think is lacking in season five is some of the subtlety Grey's has always done so well. There is also the development of one particular storyline that simply does not work, not with the character at the heart of it.

All that said, for me the heart of Grey's is the relationships Meredith Grey has with both Derek Shepherd and Cristina Yang, her boyfriend and best friend respectively. Both these relationships are a lot healthier in season five which adds depth to Meredith's character and pushes her story along to a great degree. It also means we see some real growth in her relationship with Derek, though the way this develops won't please everyone. In turn, because the relationship with Meredith is healthier, we see a side of Derek that is new with the development of a back story for him.

All in all, though I do think this is not the best season of Grey's, it is still well worth a look.

Purchasers should also not be concerned if the packaging says region one. It is most definitely region 2.
