To all those reading out in TV Land: Keane and The Cardigans do not a good show make. "Grey's Anatomy," with it's quite unclever title (yes, the main character's name is Meredith Grey), is the doctor show equivalent of slamming your finger in a car door, and not feeling anything. You know you're supposed to feel something, but your so utterly bored, you just can't, and no amount of good music (misused as it is) can make up for this show's complete lack of anything compelling.
For the only reason to watch this show...
The characters on the show are so rediculously stereotypical (the caring one, the nervous one, the bitchy one, the hot one, the dickhead one) you can't actually believe that someone has actually written this show. I think they may be using Madlibs, and just filling in the blanks with the character names. Making it even worse, though, is the fact that the acting reeks. Ellen Pompeo (pictured), whose most notable performance came in "Old School" opposite Luke Wilson, is a really, really bad actress.
And don't get me started on the ridiculous rape-victim-bites-off-attacker's-penis subplot. It was neither funny, nor clever, to have the penis-in-a-cooler joke run the entire length of the show.
The only redeaming quality this show has is Katherine Heigl, and still they manage to squander what screen time she has with annoying complaints, and absolutely no character development.
Anyway, to make up for this rant, here are some pictures of Katherine Heigl (from the upcoming episode - and the only reason I'll be watching).
