Okay, I'm going to admit it now. Before I got this for review? I had never seen Grey's Anatomy.
*insert shocked and horrified noises here*
I know, I know.
All my girlfriends have raved over it so I was somewhat familiar with the storylines. Oh believe me when I tell you...I know who "McDreamy" is. I've been familiar with him and his particular brand of dreaminess for many years.
I really enjoyed this series. So much so in fact, that even though I finished watching it days and days ago I decided to go back and download old episodes of past seasons so I could attempt to get caught up before I wrote this.
Without giving away any spoilers (or trying not to!) there was a lot of very sweet and poignant moments. When Meredith tells us the importance of saying "I love you" to the people in our lives while we still can? I honestly, really found myself choking up. And I am not a choking up kind of girl. Well, not often anyway. I liked the character Izzie a lot, and a lot of the storylines seem to involve her. This made me want to watch the older episodes even more, so I can see how everything has evolved.
The DVD was awesome, of course. And of course I have to share my favorite part...the bloopers!
Buy this. If you are not a Grey's fan YOU KNOW A GREY'S FAN. (Believe me, they are everywhere)
