  • Tonight, through the miracle of modern medicine, the show comes roaring back with a plot that includes the, er, trauma of Seattle Grace Hospital being downgraded from the number two facility in the state to the number 12. Show More

  • Grey has been on long enough now that it has lost much of its erotic sizzle--McDreamy is edging toward Mcnappy--but the satisfyingly steady seventh season is a model of a hit that keeps fitting nee characters into the blueprint. [20 Dec 2010, p.41] Show More

  • So far Grey's Anatomy is groping for a balance between over-the-top nuttiness and heartstring plucking drama; it lands awkwardly in the dram-edy category. If it would stop trying to be droll and ironic (this is no "Scrubs"), it just might make the cut. [27 March 2005, p.F01] Show More

  • Tonight's premiere hits on all the things the show does so well. There is romance, heartbreak, humor and a few moments that will move fans to tears. Show More

  • ABC's promise, a bold one, is "A New Beginning." That may be overstating what we see tonight, but at least we do get a brand-new guy for Sandra Oh's Cristina Yang to kiss. That's a good start. But as with any veteran show, some of the old mix-and-match gets redundant. Show More

  • Unfortunately, the best bits of the premiere were the flashbacks to the finale, though their impact was watered down considerably in the context of an action-less storyline, filled with Grey's usual rambling pontifications. Show More

  • It's in the shooting's emotional reverberations that the show is regenerating after the past few hit-and-miss seasons. Show More

  • Grey's wants to offer something for everyone, it seems, and does an admirable job not only of mixing drama, comedy and romance, but also of mixing in issues of today's complicated world of science. [24 Mar 2005, p.47] Show More

  • That rare TV show that comes to the air fully formed, as if everyone involved has been working together forever, instead of just a few weeks. Show More
