    Share your thoughts towards this multiple Emmy award winning show.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    The answers might prove me wrong, but I expect the show to be underrated in this forum. It’s simply an iconic show with the first 5-6 seasons being classic television. S2 and s3 especially would have been great Drama Series winners. Its diversity and representation is underrated even now. Sandra Oh, Ellen Pompeo (people who have seen s11-12 know what I’m talking about), Katherine Heigl, Kate Walsh (and I could mention way more) were all Emmy worthy. The show is an extremely deserving SAG Ensemble winner and is also Shonda Rhimes’ peak in terms of writing. The first seasons of Scandal were good, but didnt come close to the peak of Grey’s.

    Stopped watching after Oh left. She was frankly win worthy from s1 to s4 (I still can’t get over Heigl winning over her) and nomination worthy for each season she was in.

    I loved the first three seasons (and I agree with hopelessstar about 2 and 3 being worthy winners) but for me it just became a bit formulaic afterwards hence why I stopped watching when Oh left.

    I stopped watching during the ghost sex story, but will look at it every now and again when something big happens. It has earned its place in television history. Its longevity alone should be applauded with it having found new fans via Netflix and still being one of the network’s number one shows.

    LOVE. I usually hate medical shows but this captivates me like no other show can. I even once dressed in a group halloween costume as my fav character Alex Karev. This is the level of obsession I have for this show.

    Love it! It’s not as strong as in earlier seasons but I tend to stick with the hospital procedurals until the end, I stayed with ER as well. As mentioned, Seasons 2 and 3 were particularly worthy of series victories.

    Season 3 was Sandra Oh at her absolute best with “From a Whisper to a Scream” and she really should have won at least once. Heigl won for the wrong season, as she garnered more praise for the Denny storyline in season 2. I’m shocked that Pompeo only received a Golden Globe nomination, and was overlooked at the Emmys during the shows peak. Wilson regularly still delivers award worthy performances, even if the writing is somewhat uneven.

    I really have come to love the show. I think people who get into it have stayed with it because it really does draw you into its story.

    Season 2 was strong, but season 5 of 24 was very deserving of Drama Series. Also worthy were season 5 of Six Feet Under and season 5 of The Shield.

    The snubbing of season 5 of Six Feet Under still stings, particularly because the finale was noteworthy and it had lost for all of the previous seasons.

    Grey’s Anatomy did have the unfortunate luck of peaking during a strong stretch of dramas that included the winning Lost, 24, the last season of The Sopranos, and the first season of Mad Men.

    Season 2 and Season 3 constitute some of the best-acted Network television in history. It really is one of the most deserving SAG ensemble winners. In fact I remember Season 2 and Season 3 collectively had what? 50+ episodes? That would be equal to five seasons of a cable or streaming show, and Greys truly delivered.

    I did stop watching after Season 5.

    Iconic show. I’m still on season 7 and have no plans to abandon it just yet, even if my favorite character George O’Malley left quite early. Seasons 2 and 3 deserved to win Drama Series at the Emmys. One of the strongest ensembles I’ve ever seen and most actors here deserved Emmy noms.

    Katherine Heigl consistently offered my favorite performance. Kevin McKidd is very underrated and should’ve won an Emmy for his first or second season on this show.

    Oh should have won for season 3, Wilson for season 4.

    Heigl killed in season 2 and 5.
    Justin Chambers also was great in season 5.
    Pompeo has never been the strongest but sure she had her moments and carried the show beautifully over the years.

    I also appreciated Sarah Ramirez, Kate Walsh, Kevin McDidd and Caterina Scorsone.

    Kate Burton and Loretta Devine were brilliant, Emmy whorthy, guest stars.

    Season 2 would have been a whorthy winner for Drama Series, but nothing against 24 that year and Six Feet Under would have been also deserving.
    “From A Whisper To A Scream” might be my all time favorite episode.

    Considering its age the show is still solid. It should end soon but I’ll stick anyway till the end!

    Love it, even when it becomes silly at places (read: Denny ghost story, musical episode) because of its super-strong albeit fluctuating ensemble. I’m on season 8 rn and still find myself interested in these characters because of how convincingly they infuse drama & humor in every episode. Its SAG award is very very deserving and although Katherine Heigl is my favorite performer of the lot, it bugs me how Sandra Oh, Chandra Wilson never won even a single Emmy and Ellen Pompeo failed to score an Emmy nod!??! And this was probably a long shot even then, but I think Kate Walsh should have received at least a single guest nod for her appearances after season 3.

    If those rumors of Season 17 being its final are true, someone needs to start an Emmy campaign for Ellen Pompeo & Chandra Wilson. Those two getting nominations would be such an iconic send-off to this long-running and consistently entertaining show.
