I just realized that there is no thread for this show. I was dying to hear what people thought of this latest episode.
Put Me In Coach:
In order to stress cooperation and teamwork, Owen enters the doctors
into a softball league where they will compete against Seattle
Presbyterian, the other hospital in Seattle. Richard tries to repair
Bailey and Meredith’s working relationship. Lexie becomes jealous over
Mark dating a new woman and Alex fights to keep Zola at Seattle Grace.October 29, 2011 at 12:52 pm #232808
The past two episodes have seemed a lot goofier than usual.
I still enjoy this show. It’s a shadow of its former self, but I’ll be watching til the end.October 29, 2011 at 7:45 pm #232809
It must be disappointing for Debbie Allen to get to direct another episode of this show and she gets a baseball episode.
Back in the day, this would’ve been a fun episode, I think this show has done comedy very well in the past, it just didn’t happen here.
Last week I thought was very good, I’m liking the dynamic between the regulars and all of them making fun and not respecting April. Those scenes in her office, it was last week or the week before, reminded me of the earlier days of the show.
I still think this should be their final season, they don’t have a lot of places to go at this point.October 30, 2011 at 9:26 am #232810
All I needed in this episode was watching Meredith and Cristina get drunk in the outfield. Hilarious.
I still think this is a great show, but I agree that this should be the last season. If Pompeo does in fact leave after this season, then I’m out regardless. The show won’t work without her.October 30, 2011 at 10:00 am #232811
This hasn’t been a great show for years. I still try to watch mainly for the medical cases, but the soap opera gets to be too much. Bailey is a shadow of her former self. Callie used to be a bad ass before she got together with Arizona, who is intolerable. And while other shows know how to use music to great effect, GA has become a one-hour commercial for pop songs, that are so loud it competes with the dialog. I used to love this show, but now it’s mostly annoying.October 30, 2011 at 4:59 pm #232812
Yeah I agree that Bailey is the worst part of this show now. Not because she’s bad or annoying, but because she’s the best reminder of “what it used to be”. It’s frustrating to see her as a character and Wilson as an actress wasted like this.
I think everybody else has maintained their characters as they’ve always been, although Lexie sure has been dumped recently. I think the show suceeded with April and Avery and they managed to make good characters out of them. I still think Teddy is a waste and her storyline with Scott Foley will never be important.
I also like that they didn’t take Richard out of the show.November 11, 2011 at 7:26 pm #232813
Fantastic show. I’m shocked they killed Scott Foley. I loved the season-long arch that was the romance between Teddy and Henry. Even as they went into surgery, I thought there would be some struggle that would cause Cristina to find out…but was really not expecting him to die.
Grey’s can still bring it, and they definitely did with this episode.
Dang, I love Ellen Pompeo in this role. At this point, she’s so relaxed in this role. There’s no grandstanding. She just lives the skin of Meredith and it’s so enjoyable to watch. It’s a shame that she’s never been Emmy-nominated.November 11, 2011 at 7:37 pm #232814

Yes. It’s funny to think that she used to be (in my opinion) the weakest actor on the show.
This episode was great.November 11, 2011 at 10:48 pm #232815
I agree. Ellen Pompeo went from being the weakest player to the strongest. She’s been great for the last couple of years.
However, Sandra Oh also did a great job. This was such a sad episode with such a heart breaking cliffhanger (or cliffhangers, there were mulitple). I wish this wasn’t they had one more episode before holiday break.November 12, 2011 at 8:41 am #232816
I havent seen a Grey’s eppy this good in awhile.December 2, 2011 at 1:57 pm #232817
LOVE THIS IDEA!
Grey’s Anatomy is pulling a Fringe.
In a February 2012 sweeps episode, the docs at Seattle Grace will be making their rounds in an alternate reality, as the ABC drama ponders the provocative question, “What if things had been different — very different.”
Specifically, Meredith imagines what life would’ve been like had her late mother Ellis never had Alzheimer’s, a traumatic situation that shaped Mer into the dark-and-twisty wife and MD she is today.
A Grey’s rep declined to comment, but TVLine has confirmed that Kate Walsh will play a big role in the mind-trippy episode. Why? Because in this alt-reality, Derek and Addison — wait for it — never broke up!
And while Walsh is the only former series regular returning, an insider confirms that other Grey’s alums will be back — including a certain victim of the Seattle Grace Massacre of 2010, who shall not be named.
And to be sure, Derek, Mer and Addison aren’t the only characters who get pulled into this new dimension. “Everyone is affected,” says the insider.December 2, 2011 at 4:31 pm #232818
This sounds interesting. I wonder how Ellis still being alive and well will affectRichard.January 12, 2012 at 6:33 am #232819
Episode Title: “This Magic Moment”
Synopsis: The doctors split into teams for a risky surgery involving conjoined twins; Teddy questions Cristina about Henry’s surgery; Bailey enlists Meredith to be a buffer between her and Ben, who’s pressuring her to ratchet up their relationship; Richard teaches Alex a tough lesson in the OR.
Discuss.January 13, 2012 at 7:48 am #232820
The conjoined twins surgery was intense, but just on a gross-out level, the eye surgery from last week was much more graphic. Teddy coming to terms with Henry’s death by making Cristina repeat every detail of his surgery was an interesting way to go there. I’m glad they’re giving Kim Raver strong material, since there was a stretch of time where the writing for her character was pretty aimless. Bailey needing Meredith as a “buffer” between her and Ben was beneath Chandra Wilson. The Miranda of past seasons would have handled all of that without hardly blinking. Webber duping Alex twice out of his surgeries was fun. I wondered what they would do with Webber after he gave up being Chief. I guess this is better than nothing. I wish that Lexie wasn’t still pining for Sloan. Even with Sloan’s new and smart girlfriend in the picture, they look to pair those two again soon. I’m glad that they’ve wrapped up the Zola storyline for the time being with Meredith and Derek. I’m looking forward to the alternate episode, especially for Kate Burton’s return.
