November 23, 2006: From a Whisper to a Scream

Hours after the effects of the tryptophan from the fabulous Thanksgiving dinner I had with friends wore off, I gave thanks for a new episode of Grey's. This episode was anything but a turkey. How many of you were screaming "yes!" to the TV as soon as you heard Sandra Oh's voice in the opening narration rather than Ellen Pompeo's? Not that I dislike Meredith Grey being the show's narrator — it is called Grey’s Anatomy. But it's a nice diversion when someone else takes over for a change. Last time this happened, it was T.R. Knight's narrative voice and I remember how most of you were thrilled and only a few of you insisted on having it be Meredith's voice. It made such good sense for Cristina to narrate at the opening and closing of the show since it was a heavily Cristina-centric episode. In fact, the entire super-sized hour and 10 minutes made such good sense, I kept thinking how satisfied I was. In fact, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I'd like to send a thank you note to ... read more

November 16, 2006: Staring at the Sun

The three words that kept going through my head while watching this episode were, "It's about time...."— It's about time... that someone (George) noticed that Cristina's been covering for Burke's shaky hand.— It's about time... that Meredith stopped being dark and twisty and started having a more positive outlook on life.— It's about time... that Alex kissed Izzie again. Even though she wasn't ready for it, it got her mind off her mourning.— It's about time... that Richard focused on Adele and stopped visiting Ellis.— It's about time... that someone (Addison) witnessed Sloan asking his interns to do menial tasks.— It's about time... that Derek attempted to be more civil with Addison while at work ("bright and shiny") and to "peacefully coexist" with her.— It's about time... that someone besides Cristina (George) offered Burke some help.— It's about time... that George's family realized what a good doctor he is, thanks to Cristina.— It's a... read more

November 9, 2006: Where the Boys Are

Somehow I knew the guys' camping trip was going to be a disaster. But at least it was a learning experience for everyone. George figured out that Burke's got a shaky hand and Callie slept with Sloan (thanks to Alex's big mouth). Alex learned that George has quite a temper. Webber discovered that bartender Joe (Steven W. Bailey) is in a loving relationship with a man named Walter (Jack Yang), which made Webber miss his wife Adele. Walter learned to never again go on a camping trip with straight guys. Burke realized that Derek has no male friends and George is rather nosy. Derek compared Sloan to "cancer — he infects everything" and yearned to start from the very beginning with Meredith. After last week's promos, I was right there with most of you, thinking Meredith had better not sleep with Sloan. Then I thought: "Nah, she knows better," so I'm glad I was right. Meredith's best moment with Sloan was her three rules: "No flirting, no talking about Derek and no giving me the face... read more

November 2, 2006: Let the Angels Commit

I bet all you Meredith-haters screamed "Yes!" when Cristina said: "Everything is not about you, Meredith." I would've laughed harder had they not used it in the coming attractions and promos, but either way, that was a good line regardless of how you feel about Meredith. I personally enjoyed Meredith tonight in this commitment-themed episode — especially in the closing scene when she finished Derek's sentence by suggesting he "take some space" and clear his head, as if she understood, followed by her "I'm here for you" to Cristina. How about that troublemaker sister of Derek's, though? Seems like Nancy flew in to town just to stir the pot, but I liked that she and Derek played nice at the end, even after she admitted to being one of the many women who had slept with Mark Sloan. Lame opening scene, though, with Meredith's barging in to the trailer as Derek's standing in just a towel and not immediately telling (the "slutty intern") Meredith, "She's my sister." That was Embeth Da... read more

October 19, 2006: Oh, the Guilt

As the episode's title hinted, overcoming guilt was certainly the ongoing theme tonight. The person most affected by her surrounding friends and fellow doctors was Izzie. My favorite two "Izzie influencers" were Burke and Webber. They both FTF'd her (Friends Tell Friends) — first Burke told her: "You quit. You quit being a surgeon. You have two good hands and you aren't using them. Feel guilty about that." And then I thought it was quite effective when Webber, trying to make Izzie feel better about the Denny incident, told her that way back when he was an intern, he too made a fatal mistake. But he stayed and he worked and he never made that mistake again: "Every day I get to save lives." Excitingly watching Cristina do the running whip stitch on a heart was the other turning point for Izzie. If only she'd frickin' deposit that $8,700,000 check! Cute and quick George-Meredith moment by the refrigerator at the end, by the way. (If you blinked, you might've missed Meredith go to ... read more

October 12, 2006: What I Am

The very best episodes of Grey's Anatomy make you laugh and cry all at once, and this was one of those. Seconds after I was crying while watching Izzie listen to Denny's phone message to his parents, I laughed out loud at Callie propositioning McSteamy. All together now: Shut up! Mark Sloan aka McSteamy to Callie: "Can I buy you a drink?" Callie: "Only if you have it delivered to my hotel room," as she walks out of the bar, then turns around all sexy: "You comin'?" You go, girl! She breaks it off with George and then seduces... McSteamy. Can we say "upgrade" much? Only on television, but I'll allow it.Nice way to have McSteamy enter the hospital — having everyone gaze over and give off all sorts of different vibes ranging from shock to anger to excitement. Oh yes — be sure to pick up the latest copy of TV Guide magazine since new series regular Eric Dane is gracing the cover. Fall TV Hot List issue, people — run, don't walk!

October 5, 2006: Sometimes a Fantasy

As the title of the episode indicates, "Sometimes a Fantasy" is an effective way to open an episode of this show. So funny to see the three of them (supposedly) naked in bed together — smiling Meredith in the middle of Finn and Derek. This dating thing was a nice way for Ellen Pompeo to finally get a chance to show off that smile of hers, after several seasons of sorrow. I liked seeing Meredith as a giddy girl declaring that "Dating is fun!" and telling Derek and then Finn: "I had a dream about you last night." Sandra Oh did a hilarious job playing the Ethel Mertz role reacting in the background to Meredith's conversations with her men and her "She's dating everyone with a pulse" reference was great.Guest star Abigail Breslin (awesome in Little Miss Sunshine) was perfectly cast as the little girl who thought she was a superhero, but actually had a chromosomal condition where she couldn't feel pain. I loved that what Bailey said to Alex during the girl's surgery — "Pain's t... read more

September 28, 2006: I Am a Tree

First of all, how exciting was the news last Friday morning that Grey's beat CSI in the ratings? Never thought it would happen since CSI has been such a juggernaut ever since it moved to Thursdays from Fridays years ago. CSI (along with Survivor) caused CBS to take away the "Must-see TV" title away from NBC as far as Thursdays were concerned. CSI for me has always stood for Can't Seem Interested or Can't Stand It (and before a bunch of you tell me you like both shows, that's fine – I'm thrilled – it's just not my cup of tea). But I digress. Grey's beat CSI, and I was shocked. Now, on with the show....Hello - Meredith couldn't choose between Derek and Finn, so she chose both! And shut up that McSteamy's back! But I'll rewind and say that I liked that Meredith kept going back and forth between the two of them. First it was Derek, then Finn. It was funny that Meredith spent the hour being obsessed about who to choose, while simultaneously, Cristina obsessed about not being a... read more

September 21, 2006: Time Has Come Today

I f---ing love this show. There -- I said it. And to use the title of the episode, "Time Has Come Today" for all us Grey's fans to rejoice -- we finally saw our season premiere! I want to say right away that I really enjoyed all the flashbacks -- and not flashbacks to scenes we've already witnessed ("previously on Grey's Anatomy"). It had a sort of Lost feel to it with the backstories -- not completely Lost-like since most of the scenes were things they've alluded to before, but it was great to finally see them:- The very first time Izzie and Alex said "Seriously" to each other.- George introducing himself to Meredith in an oh-so "I'm Dorothy -- the small and meek" way.- Meredith flashing way back to her childhood and recalling her mother arguing with Dr. Webber at an amusement park.- Cristina meeting Burke for the first time.- Derek throwing Addison out of their home ("We're not 'Derek & Addison' anymore!").- Derek's first meet-n-greet with Meredith at the bar.Those last two we... read more

Any truth to the rumor on ...

Question: Any truth to the rumor on perezhilton.com about the Grey's Anatomy cast being upset at Shonda Rhimes over her alleged unwillingness to let them tackle other projects?


Answer: I honestly have no idea. I do, however, find it curious that the "story" came out just hours before it was announced that Kate Walsh had to drop out of the Stephen King thriller 1408 due to "scheduling conflicts" with Grey's. Hmmm….
