Shonda Rhimes is an evil genius. I was close to giving up on “Grey’s Anatomy” until last season ended with a harrowing plane crash that claimed Lexie’s life and left everyone else in danger. Just when I thought I was out, she pulled me back in. After watching the shocking tearjerker of a season premiere, […]
Nothing makes “Grey’s Anatomy” fans crazier than weddings. Whether it was Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) post-it wedding, Christina (Sandra Oh) and Owen’s (Kevin McKidd) rushed, ill-advised nuptials, or Alex (Justin Chambers) and Izzie’s (Katherine Heigl) impulsive ceremony, whenever two characters walk down the aisle, the audience always seems divided about whether the […]
In the final two minutes, something happened that changed absolutely everything. You need to see the clip before you watch next week’s finale.
After five years, it was the moment of truth for the “Grey’s Anatomy” residents. They each faced the toughest test of their careers : the oral medical boards, which would determine whether they would complete their residencies and become attending physicians. It was a brutal exam, in which each resident was grilled by two doctors […]
After nearly eight years in real time, the doctors of “Grey’s Anatomy” are finally finishing the fifth and final year of their residency. That means they need to tale their medical boards, a difficult test that involves being cross examined by an experienced doctor. Fortunately, the “Grey’s” version is a lot more fun than in […]
The “Grey’s Anatomy” alternative universe episode, “What If” was a hilarious respite from the show’s usual angst. The version of Seattle Grace that Meredith imagined would exist if Chief Weber had left his wife for Ellis turned out to be a lot more fun than the real thing.
“Grey’s Anatomy” returns for its eighth season Thursday night. It’s hard to believe that eight years have passed since Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) began their residency at Seattle Grace, especially since in the show’s timeline they are beginning the fifth and final year of their residency. The two-hour premiere picks up five […]
Last season, “Grey’s Anatomy” ended with a explosive, suspenseful game-changing blood bath. This year, executive producer Shonda Rhimes chose a far lower key finale where the only stakes were emotional. Almost every couple breaks up and everyone is miserable. The medical crisis of the week was anti-climactic. A plane crashes. The hospital prepares for an […]
It’s always the quiet ones. Dismissed as too mousy to be a leader by the other residents, April Kemper won the coveted Chief Resident position on the season finale of “Grey’s Anatomy.” Granted, most of the other candidates made mistakes that took them out of the running, but the safe money was on one of […]
Thursday night, “Grey’s Anatomy” airs its much hyped musical episode, “The Music Event.” After being critically injured in a car accident, Callie (Sara Ramirez) hallucinates that she and the rest of the cast are singing songs that have appeared on the show’s soundtrack. For Chyler Leigh, who plays Lexie, it was both a frightening and […]
