Season One DVD Now Available

Grab the DVD Set and Relive the Drama!
Look at it as quality over quantity. Last March, Grey's Anatomy breathed fresh air into the sterile hospital drama format. Now it's breaking the rules again by releasing its Season One DVD set less than a year after its premiere.

Season one technically contained 13 episodes, but four of them weren't aired last summer and were instead added to Season Two. As a result, just the first nine episodes are included on the DVD, along with bonus versions of the pilot and a pair of commentary options:

  1. Cast members Katherine Heigl (Izzie), T.R. Knight (George) and Sandra Oh (Cristina).
  2. Creator and Executive Producer Shonda Rhimes, with co-producer Peter Horton.

The cast's commentary is endearingly awkward, natural and unpretentious, which is fitting for a show of this nature. The allure of Grey's Anatomy is its realistic and likable characters, and the fact that its cast members seem to actually like each other broadens its appeal. Perhaps the only downside of the bonus features is that embattled lovebirds Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) and Patrick Dempsey (Derek) are not prominently featured.

It's still worth checking out, whether you are a newly-converted fan looking to catch up, or a full-blown devotee wanting to relive last Spring's initial episodes. A behind-the-scenes glimpse at the show's production is also interesting, with secrets such as the props used for surgery scenes revealed, as well as the trials of writing realistic medical scripts. There are also five unaired scenes from other episodes, and an alternate opening-credits scene.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
