Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Review: The Musical Episode > Comments Page 7
@ Ama: Sara Ramirez is a well-known Tony Award winning Broadway actress. She won her Tony for her performance in "Spamalot" and her range is much broader than what was portrayed on "Grey's Anatomy."
Stupid show! I hate musicals, always have. Who, in real life, breaks into song when they are on their way into surgery! Or dying on the hood of an SUV for that matter!
Stupid show! NO MORE PLEASE!
totally agree with you that the music was distracting from the plot, i had to watch it several times to see what i had missed and get a whole picture and even now i am not sure if i got everything. beautiful voices yes, but not for this show. while theres a lot of people on here talking about glee, i happen to like glee but thats because thats what the show is meant to be and has been from the begining, GA is meant to be a drama based on the relationships and struggles of the doctors
Godawful episode. I'm not complaining that this was just a filler episode. It's the sining. I was so happy that GA had a good plot going again. And now this. It's like the XKCD drama but costs much more to produce...
This was an awful idea. To me, the doctors of Seattle Grace are more like friends after watching hours upon hours of information on their lives for the last 6 1/2 seasons. This musical episode turned Grey's into just another tv show instead of an hour long insight into the lives of the people I've come to know so well. I know that sounds absolutely crazy, but I'm sure that many of you can agree. How many of us cried when Georgie died at the end of Season 5? How many of us cried when Christina needed Meredith to rip her wedding dress off after Burke left? This episode could have been true-to-form Grey's...kind of like the one when Meredith almost died when she drowned at the ferry site. Am I bit obesessed? Of course, I am. But when you invest this much time into something, that tends to happen. I hope that they don't do this again (OR maybe just have Callie's spirit sing and leave the rest of the episode alone). I miss the first 5 seasons; I want THAT calliber of writing to c
I agree - I LOVED Justin's singing. Who knew right!? I wish he would've had a bigger part even.
Anyway - I agree with the person who said that in order to really understand the musical episode you must watch it again. That's true. The more I watch it the more I see that it's pretty good. It's still Greys and despite the goofiness it's still pretty cool and I like it :)
And I also agree to the one who said that Shonda is the best writer there is and she has the best actors and actresses in her crew - that is more than true!
OK. We got that out of the way. I wonder if it was as awkward to produce as it was to watch. It's at home on Glee but not on Grey's. Sorry, Shonda.
I am impressed positively, I would love to see more( such an amazing job did they do). I think they play theirs heart out. What else I can add is that all actors should be praised for that. (its weirdness, creativity and brilliance)
LOVE GREYS ANATOMY.
Musical episodes of a nonmusical series are nothing new. They might not be to everyone's taste, but it's just ONE episode. To those who you who are so angered by this one episode that you refuse to watch the show anymore....why didn't you quit back in season four when nearly the entire season was bad? Did you forget about the ghost sex in season five? I don't get it.
I thought the singing was a little awkward at first, but it grew on me. I had no idea that Sara Ramirez could sing, and I think she did an amazing job.
Abominable - and to bill it as a Tribute to the Fans????? Are you kidding????? A self serving petting of the egos of the members of the Cat who can sing is more like it. The writing for this Show in the past, especially the first three seasons was incredible. This episode was an embarrassment. The strength of the music in the past was that it so beautifully, sensitively supported the theme and action. This episode thrust it forward and the music eclipsed the theme and action. Should have been aired as a "Grey's Anatomy Special" rather than an episode in the Season. The scheduling this season was disappointing as well. Great way to lose a viewer.
Loved it. Absolutely, positively loved it. It was powerful and well written and (as always) well acted. Am a regular watcher of Grey's and enjoyed this change-up. Enjoyed the variations of all the songs (some even more so than original versions), how the songs were integrated into the storyline, and the overall delivery. I'm not so stuck in my ways or closed minded as to not enjoy a good twist. Truly entertaining. Thank you Greys.
I am soo upset about the episode. Only saw it last night. It was unnecessary. Greys is a wonderful show and the singing distracted me from the entire episode. I am not even sure if Christina's "Burke procedure" worked, missed it through the noise. And the random dancing, kill me now. I do not watch Glee, its a great show but I do not want Grey's and Glee to morph into one.
Someone please stop them, there is a REASON why we have been loyally following Greys for 7 seasons, without any singing....WE LIKE IT THAT WAY.
Here's to a better next episode.
ummm... well thos eclaiming Callie being the main character and the drama itself being Callie's anatomy... Take a good look on the top portion of this webpage: Its a photo of the cast of GREY's anatomy with Meredith GREY in the middle and most prominent position as the Queen of the show... enuf said :)
It was awesome! They sing great, Kevin has a great voice wow, sara too ofcourse but 1 thing Justin can sing very good too, to bad he sang in 1 song
Ok that was so weird, the most awkward scene was where all the different couples are either flirting or half naked while there's a MAJOR SURGERY going on! And Owen singing was the strangest thing ever lol, anyway in my opinion the episode was a fail although no doubt about it Sara Ramirez sings really well.
I respect what Shonda Rhimes and crew did with the musical episode but I would not like to see it again in the future. At times I think it took away from the drama of the moments as opposed to enhancing it because the actors were trying to look intense while singing a song which isn't easy if you don't have experience doing it. There were times when I thought Patrick Dempsey would burst out laughing. For me, the singing took away from some of the most powerful moments but I respect everyone for stepping up to the plate. I knew Sara Ramirez could sing but I was surprised by some of the other voices. Great attempt.
As for the story, I'm glad Mark made peace with Arizona. While I'd prefer him and Callie together, Arizona is FAR from nothing and he was dead wrong to treat her as such. I'm glad he made that right.
Loved Meredith's mini breakdown in the elevator. Derek needed to see how much is hanging over her head and I hope he begins to pay attention to his wife's needs.
fantastic, i cried wow and no it not the hormones.. the show proved the characters true strengths, they over came so much by doing this episode...very good show.. loved it... i want more pls
God, I mostly love the song of chasing cars which Sara & kevin mckidd sang together ,looking forward 2 of them play&sing on the stage soon!!
This was the best episode ever. I loved it!!!!
Drawing so close to the end of the season, I believe they really threw the anchor overboard & brought the 'ship of brilliant' to a complete halt. The choice to make this a musical event was poorly thought out, and it would not surprise me one iota if these causes the show's overall ratings to plummet in the future. I for one, am very disappointed. Grey's has been out-of-this-world brilliant since it first aired. This week however, "ya'll dropped the ball".
maybe it wasn't my favorite episode but i agree with greysfan12 the singing made it 10x worse!! i cried like a baby :( and i hate that everyone relate the singing with glee, a lots of shows have a singing episode and it was wayyy before glee existed, like my musical in scrubs or something.. plus, i found it very funny to watch Bailey dance and sing idk why lol
Why does it seem so popular to be so nasty in one's criticism?? People - if you can't DO it yourself, why such confidant opinions of what is good/bad? I love the poster who thought the episode was "retarted".....hmmm, wonder if they have ever heard of the concept of the Broadway Musical.....
I have been dying for the producers of Grey's to work in an episode featuring Sara Ramirez's amazing talent. And yes...it isn't easy to work music into a drama - but jeez, there are a few people with Tonys that have managed to do it with success.
I thought the choice of music and how it was presented was amazing. I was very impressed with the vocals of cast members not usually known as singers. I am not impressed easily - (a graduate of Juilliard, a studio session artist and having produced and arranged for artists cutting demos).
Umm, you spelled "retarded" wrong...just saying...
This show WOULD have been soooo good if it weren't for the Glee-ish singing, and American Idol-Torres show. Sorry to be so harsh on my #1 most favorite show ever
loved it, one off the best ever
