Grey's Anatomy > Grey's Anatomy Review: Meeting Meredith Webber > Comments Page 4
ok, lets not do this ever again!!! The musical was so bad, the boys night wasn't much better, but this!!!??? Come on Shondra, you are way better than this episode! If you needed to stroll down memory lane, why not include Izzy, Denny and George? You did hit one character right on! Geez, that Ellis Grey is a bitch, no matter which time frame she's in! One week of her was way more than enough! So, having aired my thoughts, can't wait to get back to reality next week, yea!!!!!!!!
I hated the alternate reality, but the episode did offer interesting food for thought. Did anyone else catch that George and Izzie would have left the show earlier in the alternate reality? In real life, if you remember, Meredith played a big part in helping both of them keep thei jobs- she rallied the other interns around Izzie and they all stood by her after the L-vat incident; George re-took his intern exams after Meredith got all of the other interns to help him study. So, i guess the point is, Meredith's screwed up childhood made her into a better friend to those around her. And perfect, bright n shiny Meredith is a shallow, catty person because she's never really been tested.
I actually liked the musical episode better.....and waited 50 minutes for mark to make an appearance....oh, and I always knew the baby was his:)
I have been an avid fan of the show for years but I'm now getting turned off. First, the background music is much too loud!!! It sometimes drowns out what the actors are saying. There is no need for any background music as the actors are really good in creating the feeling & atmosphere intended by the script. It simply diverts attention from the emotions created by the actors. Second, last night was a disaster for me. In fact I turned the show off as did my daughter & her friends. It remeined me of the "opera" show you did that was just awful. I remember another show that was a "dream" show and just terrible. This program is a straight drama and great as that. Have you run out of plots? Is that why you are fooling with the format? Truthfully I like new & inovative things but last night was stupid & boring. Life doesn't go backwards it moves forward. You are stopping the characters from doing this. Please, please stop the music & dreams and stay in reality!!!!!
Um, George DID save the guy in the elevator. That was season two. The intern exam was season 3 and he failed it. According to Alex in this episode, he never came back to do his second intern year.
HATED this episode....period.
Thought it was different but I like the regular shows
I absolutely loved this episode. I hope they do it again!
I loved it!!!!I loved Addison!!!!
I don't see this episode as filler. Like many on here, this episode shows how things SHOULD be, how things ARE no matter what. This episodes shows us what relationships are the most important on the show, both platonically and romantically.
While the pairing may have been off and this was just a filler episode with no real purpose I really loved the message that it brought - your destiny is your destiny no matter what bumps you hit in the road to get there. They may not have shown it but, they hinted to the fact that Callie and Arizona would end up together, Owen and Cristina would end up together, and of course that Meredith and Derek would be together no matter what got in the way or how long it took to get there. So, with that being said, I really enjoyed this episode. And Eric Dane in a button down, dress pants, and clean shaven - YES PLEASE!
I liked that no matter what reality or Universe things will turn out the same to a certain degree as was it meant to be will be: If this alt reality would have continued then you would have had Mer and Der together. Mark and Addison still slept together and that is who he had his baby with and he still walked into the room shirtless saying that he could not get the stain out (just like he did when Der discovered the affair a few seasons back). Callie and Arizona would get together. Christina and Owen would too. Christina and Mer would become friends. However there were some items that were different, Alex being Chief Resident, April not a virgin as she and Alex were hooking up, and Lexie as a druggie. Even though 'Mandy' was timid, Miranda came to the surface in the elevator when she was talking to Alex after she got fired. So Jackson just stays the same in both realities??
This was such a great episode. I loved all the nods to Season 1 especially the last scene with Der and Mer in the bar, He's just a guy in a bar, and Mer's just a girl in a bar.
I laughed out loud when Percy said: Just shoot me now!
I also enjoyed how they made mention of Burke, Izzie and George (not sure why they would still call him 007 if he failed his boards and did not try again so he was never a doc at Seattle Grace)
I LOVED this episode! I'm a fan of Grey's since the first episode and I really loved this one. Seeing how things would've been different but actually not at all different, I thought that was really great. And combined with all the familiar songs and lines, it's close to being my favorite episode ever :D
we all know that even in an alternate reality Callie and Owen just don't fit. To make it really interesting Shonda should have had Mark and Callie together. They also should have at least given Arizona something to do. All of the rest of the pairings I feel were spot on though. I was honestly excited for this episode just to see what they could have done with Grey's Anatomy. I'm also anxious to get back to regular old Grey's.
Umm, what was the purpose? Yes it was better than the musical episode, but even for an AU episode it felt inconclusive. I was reluctantly intrigued at the notion but it fell flat to me. Having April so present and Charles when mark didn't appear until the last five minutes seemed kind of wrong. I felt like I was watching someone s fanfiction and they got writers block half way through and didn't finish.
"COME ON COME PUT YOUR HANDS INTO THE FIRE!" made my episode!
I thought it was a good episode. In terms of experiments, a much better one than the musical. The music was old GA music, the dialogue between Mer and Cristina in the bar was the exact one they had in season 1 (episode 1?) after Mer gets chosen by Derek to scrub in their first operation, remember? So everything was written so that in the end what I conclude is that in life there isno room for what ifs.. because no matter what you think you could have done differently.. in the end if there is something destined to be then that it is..
I was looking forward to this episode and I must say that I enjoyed it.
evenso I didnt understood why callie and owen would be together?! but the tention between owen and christina was perfect and the whole Mer Der Adi triangle was great. loved it. also the mother daughter theme was awsome again and seeing webber as mers dad is beautiful. I totally get why she is called dr webber in this world. she still has mother troubles, so webber will always be her family. doesnt matter in which world.
also loved the end for baily, where she finally spoke up and was the person we know and love so much.
but I must say that I truly hate bright and shiny meredith, thats why I thought it was a great ending of the episode, when she turned dark and twisty again and become a part of the twisted sisters. just perfect.
I was excited to watch this cause it seemed like a fun episode. It wasn't fun but it was still a nice episode to watch. What I liked was how the alternate reality still showed who these people really are. Circumstances might've changed but they all dealt with things in relatively the same manner. You saw how the changes altered a few things here and there but I thought the characters still stayed through to themselves. Nice message to send that things will work out the way that they're really suppose to.
I liked it. Many seem to complain about this episode but actually what was really different ? At the end, they all turn out like we know them. Meredith doesn't need her mom to be a good surgeon, she's strong and will end up with Derek, Derek and Addie will split up and there will be Mark involved, who will probably also end up with Lexie he just met. Alex screws up, Cristina and Mer will be friends, and you can totally already tell that there is a special connection between Owen/Cristina on one hand and Callie/Arizona on the other. Without mentioning that after being fired, Bailey is a future "nazi".
Yet, it was nice to explore something new and fresh, I enjoyed seeing the dynamic between Ellis and Meredith inside the hospital, that was new. And boy, how great it was to have Addison back, I really miss her.
wtf WAS that? Derek was pathetic, Meredith was a nepotism's best dream, cristina was a bitch, Lexie was a moron, Alex was even jerkier than normal, owen & Callie were the stupidest couple ever, i don't want to even talk about april. Seriously, what was the point of that episode?! I wish Shonda would stop doing experimental episodes- i get her wanting to shake things up, but they always turn out not so great- musical, documentary, the guys one, the one that goes back in time. I'm much more excited about NCIS's what if. This was just sticking random personalities to the characters and had no meaning.
I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. It really was a "What If?".
Still don't like Ellis. I loved Richard. Don't know why he did choose her though. Meredith was right about her making him small.
Felt bad for Addy and Derek. Their marriage really was a horrible shell of something.
Lexie being a junkie doesn't really make sense to me. She's an only child? What happened to Molly?
Owen and Callie marriage was jumping the shark. Totally fake and their "getting" together doesn't really seem like it would have happened in the past.
Loved Cristina and the music that followed her throughout the episode. Still a God to me in any alternative universe.
Glad all of the other characters who left (except Hahn, haha) got a mention.
Alex's attitude doesn't really make sense, but Meredith's did, I guess to an extent. I think Richard and not Ellis.
I loved all of the clothes, quotes and obvious styles that went back to the first 3 seasons. Good times.
I sure wouldnt watch this if GA was like this...
MerDer in the end (with tegan and sara, havent heard their music on the show for a LONG time!)
Christina and Mer getting friendlier over tequilas! that's my twisted sisters!
McSteamy Shirtless, YES YES YES! A THOUSAND TIMES YES!
Bailey, showing her fiesty self at alex!
Meredith realising her mom is ordinary, and wanting to make herself extra ordinary!
