What's Hot Today

Grey's Anatomy - I [Heart] Addison

Addison! It's a good episode when it starts out with a shot of her looking somewhat smug. She's darkened her hair up and I like it best when it's redder, but beggars can't be choosers. Besides, she's totally still hot. Meredith starts out this week's VO: "Great surgeons aren't made, they're born. It takes gestation, incubation, sacrifice. A lot of sacrifice. But, after all the blood and guts and gooey stuff has washed away, that surgeon you've become? Totally worth it." Addie seems to have spent a long time standing there based on the special effects of people whizzing around her like ghosts when Bailey comes up and greets her. Addie reminds Bailey and the viewing audience that she's only there for a surgery, which clearly bums out Bailey (and me.) Bailey gets her set up with keys, etc. when Richard comes up and excitedly announces, "You're back!" and she reminds him she isn't back. Oh boy, a funny little theme. I'm done recapping it as of now. He assures her that once she's back in surgery she'll decide to be back, and Addie says that things never change around there. Well, yes and no, Addison. Read More

Two in One: A Swapped Odd One Out

Addison is back. I'm back. Seattle Grace and Side Reel right themselves! So rather then separate these two post, let's hit two birds with one stones shall we! Where The Wild Things Are Review The Odd Man Out Listening to: The featured songs from the episode- Some People by Goldfrapp and What A Day by Greg Laswell. It started small, a little bear roar (sorry, the jokes are going to keep coming). Tiny, but growing. And then I heard it. I was laughing. I was LAUGHING, at appropriate moments (this is key with Greys Anatomy) at the episode. I was laughing at Greys! I LOVED this episode! I became the odd man out. I believe I am one of the only people who actually enjoyed this episode. Some many things were just odd about this. Only three featured songs in the entire show? Odd... A bear attack? Prompted by a tumor? Odd... Chief congratulating Izzie on her $120,000 worth of tests? Odd... Meredith showing some character growth? Odd... Way too much gross stuff? Odd... I am laughing at Greys? Odd... Greys Anatomy returning in strength? ODD And well needed. Greys needed, well, a huge swipe of a bear paw to knock it back with strength. And it was just what I needed. Greg Laswell's song over the back? Perfect. Haunting. And reminding me of the genius of Alex Patsavas. Lines? Perfect: Example? George: I married in the spur of the moment and I don't have a brain tumor Izzie: Yet This episode of Greys, complete with Greys piano sending me out, reminded me of why I got into it in the first place. But I guess I'm the odd man (err woman) out. I seem to be one of the only ones who liked this episode. But I'm ok with that. Grey's has righted itself with me. -------- Piece of my Heart Review Swapped Listening to: Devil Wouldn't Recognize You by Madonna Clack clack clack Addison's heels once again strike the tiles of Seattle Grace. And yet the excitement streaming through my veins to see Kate Walsh in the resurgence of her role was never met. Kate Walsh shines so hard in this episode that she needs her own spin-off.. Oh wait.. Immediately this episode is full of A's: Ava, Addison, Alex, Alex as an Ass, Awkward, Abortions, Anger, But not only was this loaded with things that starts with A's. But everything appears to be swapped: A summary that was finally conclusive should have happened on the first episode back, not the second. It's nice to have Addison back but no in order to have a summary...that should have happened on the first episode...Izzie comes through in front of her interns after appearing weak...The piano is cheesy not fitting...Emotions are swapped every few moments. It's awkward and its not, its funny then its not. After the episode, I didn't go running and screaming to look for the music. I didn't scour for tunes or pictures. It just didn't hit me as powerful. So I guess I'm swapped, too. I didn't think this episode was nearly as powerful as the first episode back. I'm a swapped, odd one out! Quote of the night: Callie: Did anyone think you two (Meredith and Christina) were a couple? Meredith: No because we screw boys like whores on tequila. Christina: And then we either marry them or try to drown ourselves. ...Nice... Photo Courtesy of GreysAnatomyInsider.com

Finally!

Okay so last nights episode felt like a drive down memory lane. Finally, the Grey's Anatomy we all fell in love with. It had a nice touch of humor as well as drama and neither was drowning out they other. I found it completely refreshing and it just reminded me of why I love this show so much. I have to admit. I was really losing faith this season. Nothing surprised me and many of the characters seemed to be turning into something and someone else. It was like the writers completely forgot the characters they had built up and who we came to love. I don't know about you but I am so damn tired of the Meredith and Derek circle we've been pulled through. I mean get over it already! so I am finally looking forward to grey's anatomy nights. I really wonder where everything is going to go. So many directions and twists. A lesbian, a potential crazy chick, Izzie bringing us back to why she is so lovable, the elevator scene at the end, and of course Addison putting her foot in her mouth during surgery. I loved seeing Addison. She's a sight for sore eyes. totally gorgeous and has this way about her that just brings the freshness back. I kinda hope she stays... don't you! Does anyone else see Rebecca becoming this crazy stocker! (I mean she obviously wasn't pregnant but totally lying about it) If you don't believe me watch the episode again. You can't say I didn't call it first... oh, and I totally think they should bring some random hottie to the cast of Grey's Anatomy for Meredith to hook up with. maybe a McFeely

Grey's Anatomy: A Night of Familiar Faces.. and babies. Lots of babies.

Last Night's Grey's Anatomy brought back many-a-familiar faces to Seattle Grace. Not only did Dr. Addison Montgomery fly up from L.A. for a surgery, but we were also graced by the presence of Ava/Rebecca, as well as the surgical interns who haven't been around for most of the season. Dr. Montgomery's arrival highlights all of the changes that have occurred in Seattle Grace since her departure. It gave us all a refresher course on what's been going on in the lives (mostly personal) of the doctors, as well as how many things have changed in the hospital. Addison's newly adopted L.A. zen attitude has made her a "hugger," and her distance from all of the drama is quite refreshing. McSteamy is back to his normal horny self-indulgent self (FINALLY), and we see some major character development with George. He has finally come to terms with the fact that he must redo his internship, and is beginning to become chummy with his fellow interns. It's nice to see a character grow- something we haven't seen in any of the Grey's characters in quite some time. The only thing that seems to be majorly ignored is the fact that only a short time ago George was married, had an affair, and then divorced. You would think he would still be somewhat emotionally invested in that, as short-lived as it may have been. We also see Izzie beginning to come to terms with her changing relationship with George, and her position as a resident. We see a renewed amount of confidence in herself as a doctor, as well as some regained control in her life and her career. It seems like she has a new sense of clarity, which is nice to see after weeks of frazzled Izzie-ness. Meredith and Derek have partnered up - on a professional level - to conduct a clinical trial to treat brain tumors with a new surgery that has thus far only been tested on animals. The team works hard to shrink offensive brain tumor guy, in an effort to save his new marriage and renew faith in his wife. I think that brain tumor guy had one of the best, heart wrenching performances that we've seen in Grey's this season! He reminded me of all of the quality patient personas that they've developed in previous seasons! Anyway, Mer-Der seem to be moving forward, and they still seem to have that spark that caught our interests back in Season One. Even now-zen Addison felt like shaking some sense into Meredith for giving up such a wonderful guy! Christina's still the whimpering kissass hovering at Dr. Hahn's feet 24/7, but I feel like Christina's lost some of the edge that used to make her so likable. Perhaps it's Burke's leaving that made her softer, but her attempts at "talking girl" in order to get through to Hahn, just seemed flat and lifeless. Perhaps the most interesting storyline of the night was the prospect that there might be a little more than best friendship between Dr. Hahn and Callie. Addison's outsider perspective is pretty keen to observing that their friendship appears to be more.. and upon bringing this to Callie's attention, Callie is forced to overcompensate and proclaim her love for penis by dancing right into the arms of horny McSteamy! And lastly we see Ava/Rebecca reappear at Seattle Grace with big news for Alex: She's Pregnant! Alex in his true stoic, harsh manner inquires about what she plans on doing with the baby, reminds her she has a husband, and tells her he doesn't have time to deal with it because he has a surgery. The surgery, of course, involves a pregnant woman and a baby who is developing with his heart outside his body. Parallel storylines much? I'm much happier with this week’s episode than last, and I hope Shonda Rhimes is able to keep this stamina to bring Grey’s back to what we loved about it in the first place!!!
