worst concept ever!! This is NOT GLEE--totally ruined a potentially great episode. WHY?
This was a great episode, the production team of Grey's did a wonderful job on this episode. It all made sense to me! A very emotional and touching episode.
I have no idea why people would be posting bad reviews on this episode, because it deserved very star and thumbs up available. The are many "wanna be" Grey fans out there, who have been watching for a season or two, but for the well seasoned fan like myself whom has watched episodes since season 1, I think this episode should be well respected.
Thank you Grey's, this episode was well strategically placed. Perfect timing for a musical!
OMG...that was the worst worst Grey's! I was so looking forward to that episode. Mark crying, the whole bit and they mocked it! Whoever thought that was going to work should be fired! Waste of a great story!
Horrible episode, none of them can sing, and it kind of ruined what could have been a great storyline.
I feel the music ruined what could have been a great episode. When George died I bawled my eyes out. Here I just was not sad at all. I kind of felt awkward watching it.
oooh- and p.s. how much did i LOVE eric danes singing???? A LOT!!!! i was reminded why his name is mcsteamy!!!
this was beautiful, callies voice was amazing
The musical thing absolutely didn't work. They didn't even do it well. There were parts where the singing was continuing in the other room and could be faintly heard under some side-conversation. 1/5 rating from me.
Next time, try watching the Buffy musical episode and take notes! It's doubtful that there's anyone with the genius of Joss Whedon on staff who would be able to pull it off... just stay away from the musicals from now on, Greys. Big failure.
This was by far the worst Greys episode I have ever seen. I was really looking forward to this episode. I was hoping it would be as dramatic and powerful as the episode in which George died or Meredith fell into Pudget Sound. I watch this show religiously every thursday and this was the first time I actually contemplated changing the channel. Although the plot was good, the music definitely took away from the show. 90% of the time I had to ask my girlfriend what the characters were saying because the dialogue was drowned out by the singing. And what was with the bad porno in the middle of the episode. Callie is dyeing and a happy song pops on with everyone getting in on. Really Grey's??? You got away with it this time, but lets not do that again. Glee is bad enough, but lets leave the cheesy singing to broadway starlet wannabes and keep it far from the edgy, comical, drama that is Grey's Anatomy.
okay, personally my opinion of the episode is mixed (which kinda encompasses what the critics have been saying). some bits were quite good such as the scenes where they sing 'chasing cars'. I thought the scenes where lexie sang 'breathe' were the best of the episode. Lexie's voice was brilliant considering she had no singing experience before and only used to sing in the shower. I thought the 'running on sunshine' scenes were completely awful and felt incredibly force because they didn't fit into the episode properly. I think callie was okay but sometimes her singing felt cheesy. I'm suprised that i enjoyed lexie singing more than callie.
Hopefully Shonda has gotten the whole musical thing out of her system now, because while Sara Ramirez has a beautiful voice, I found a lot of the other musical moments awkward. I would have rather had Sara Ramirez just singing in the background for the whole episode.
Grey's Anatomy is supposed to be an edgy medical drama not a musical show. I think that the music took away from the storyline. Although the actors (some) have great voices I felt myself cringing everytime a song started up. The music should be in the background to help the dramatic story along. NOT overtake it to where it brings out the cheese factor. PLEASE no more musical episodes!
Tvfanatic, I can no longer count on you for solid episode reviews. This episode was absolutely terrible, but you gave it four and a half stars?! The most this episode should have earned was three stars, and even that is a stretch! It was horrible!
i LOVED this episode. i honestly don't know how you can be a true fan and not love it. some of the singing was a little shakey- and it made me laugh sometimes. but overall it was delightful and i loved it!!!!!
did anyone else think for a moment that burke was gonna be called in for this? for a few seconds i definitly was like, "hold on wait...." aaaah. such a good time.
The musical theme didn't work for me. It was complete crap and a waste of a good storyline.
Okay. The overly teased "music event" finally arrived. It's incredibly hard to judge an episode of a show solely based on little aspects that might have been either very good or very bad. All in all, it was definitely an interesting and entertaining episode, and obviously, Sara Ramirez was the highlight - not only of this episode - but of the whole season so far. BUT... unfortunately, I was expecting a little bit more. The singing by the supporting cast was mostly good (although I feel like there was too much Owen on this hour) and the acting was over-the-top (special congrats to Sara Ramirez, Jessica Capshaw, Chandra Wilson and Eric Dane) but there weren't enough relevant plot developments
the episode was amazing...sure it was awkward at the beginning but it didn't stop being grey's
the actors played so nice and sara ramirez of course has an unbelievable voice
over all i liked this episode because they tried something new and it worked out nicely...:)
Was I watching Glee or Grey's anatomy? Terrible episode!!! The storyline was great but the bursting into song every 5 seconds took the edge out of the characters. It was Broadway over-the-top dramatic instead of medical intense drama. Episodes during which hospital staff got hurt like during the shooting or when George died were a million times better. I was really looking forward to this episode and it has been a big disappointment!
Besides Sara Ramirez, who was beyond other worldly in this episode, Jessica Capshaw was the highlight. Her acting was the strongest- Arizona was completely heartwrenching for the entire hour. She brought depth the the episode. Can't wait for the wedding!!
i really like this episode. I had goose bumps form beginning-end. I didn't like how teddy would not listen to Christina if she would of done it her way Callie would of died. I really want Meredith to get pregnant I feel really bad for her. I loved the singing a lot of them have really good voices. I was hoping that Mark and Lexie would get back together but i think that is not gonna happen. sad day. Overall this episode was one of my favorites.
This was a HORRIBLE episode!! Story-wise, it was good, with all doctors depserately trying to save both Callie's life AND the baby's life, and with Mark and Arizona going from fighting and insulting each other to coming to an understanding. The story was good.
But singing... Good God, awful, awful. It did not make any sense at all that all doctors would suddenly burst into singing at all times, and it didn't help either that only a few could actually sing. Sara, Kevin and Chandra were all great. Chyler and Justin surprised, but the rest... no, just no.
This is something I hope they will never do again, because it just doesn't fit. Musical episodes on a supernatural show, like Buffy, are easy to explain and make sense, but a drama show about doctors and all...
I was cringing every time someone would start singing.
I LOVED IT. Like being at a Broadway musical. Not quite the tears of "Denny Duquette" episodes, but I'm sobbing.
HATE HATE HATED IT!!!! A MUSICAL, SERIOUSLY...I AM AN EVERYWEEK FAN BUT MUSICALS LIKE LAST NIGHT I WON'T WATCH.
I really enjoyed the episode however, I felt it left much to anticipation. I felt on some levels it was a little to over-dramatic especially, when Callie was sining "The Story'. Then again, it was nice to see the characters show a different side of them- obviously, their singing voices and Mark's more emotional and vulnerable side. I feel the episode should have been 2 hours rather than 1 hour as the hype around it was so huge, after all it was "The Music Event". I feel the episode was lacking on some levels as it was never clear as to what exactly was wrong with Callie, clearly a lot but it was never clarified. Don't get me wrong, it was clearly NOT lacking in the drama department, though. Not to mention, what was up with "Walking on Sunshine" scene? Maybe just to dilute all the sadness?
Despite all the negatives, I was extremely impressed with their voices. I loved hearing them sing. I also feel the song choices were very clever and appropriate for the circumstances-Good on Shonda!
Awesome. But instead of singing they should have used the original songs in place. Would have made it a million times better.
