Obviously, you’d have to be a Grey’s Anatomy fan to get into this package, because it chronicles the whole first season. I wasn’t into the show heavily at that point; my ex got me into it as it progressed that year, but I do remember a few of these episodes from first-run, and I like having this collection around, on the days that are not Thursday and I want to see a classic episode of this show. One thing: I haven’t seen Addison yet, as I don’t think she appeared until season 2. No Callie either; she didn’t appear until Season 3. This may not be for fans of Season 4 (current season), which is WAY different in tone than these DVDs. At this time, a few years ago, I thought this was the best show on TV ever. Due to some of the cast reshuffling, I no longer feel that way, as I do feel the quality has declined quite a bit (seasons 1-3 were the best, and I’d rate season 4 as 6/10, with some episodes rated as less than that). The “emotional” factor is still there, occasionally, and it is probably heavier than it was in season 1, where they were just defining who the characters were, but I’d definitely say give seasons 1-3 a spin before getting into the post-Burke era, which doesn’t seem to be their strongest. Last point: in watching these episodes, it is clear to me that Burke (Isaiah Washington) is sorelly missed, as he was pretty much the “star” of the show at this time. Case in point is the season 4 “let go of the dress” episode, which was just rerun. That is one of the all time worst episodes in Grey’s history. Also, you may want to keep in mind, as you watch these episodes from season 1, that the show was part of the Sunday ABC lineup at the time, bookended by “Desperate Housewives.” I personally thought this was the best pairing in the show’s history, and you can’t tell me the pairing with Grey’s and “Big Shots” is better, because “Big Shots” needs to be cancelled asap.
