DVD Review: Grey’s Anatomy: Season 5


The hottest doctors on television experience some of the most important
moments of their lives in Grey’s Anatomy: The Complete Fifth Season, coming to DVD on September 15, 2009 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. The seven-disc DVD set includes every episode from season five of the ABC hit series plus one full disc of exclusive bonus features including bloopers, deleted scenes, cast interviews, extended episodes and cast interviews.

The Complete Fifth Season of ABC’s irresistible medical drama Grey’s Anatomy is full of life-changing surprises for the committed young doctors of Seattle Grace Hospital. The award-winning ensemble created by cast shines through heart-stopping moments of life, death, love and riveting medical drama, leaving fans breathless with anticipation.

“Grey’s Anatomy” was created by Shonda Rhimes and stars Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey, Patrick Dempsey as Derek Shepherd, Sandra Oh as Cristina Yang, Katherine Heigl as Isobel “Izzie” Stevens, Justin Chambers as Alex Karev, T.R. Knight as George O’Malley, Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey, James Pickens, Jr. as Richard Webber, Sara Ramirez as Callie Torres, Eric Dane as Mark Sloan, Chyler Leigh as Lexie Grey, Brooke Smith as Erica Hahn, and Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt).

Grey’s Anatomy continues to be a hit series, and one that we can’t turn away from – no matter how much Meredith annoys us. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) is actually much more tolerable in this season – meaning of course that Dr. McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) had to be the unstable one that drove us crazy. Just get married and live happily-ever-after already!

New relationships emerge while old ones fizzle out, a new doctor comes in, and there are a ton of medical emergencies that will have you grossed out – yet completely engaged.

The last episode of the season was the high point for me – and it wasn’t a big shocker to the fans that had heard about the on-set drama between the writers and some of the cast – but the execution of how it happened was definitely a shock. I won’t spoil you – but… wow. Part of it, you won’t see coming.

It wasn’t my favorite season – as I think the earlier seasons were more exciting – but it certainly doesn’t hold back on the drama. And it is wonderful to see our favorite characters continue to grow in their residencies.

The Season 5 DVD set offers a ton of bonus features that makes it a must have for any Grey’s fan. From unaired scenes to hilarious outtakes, a behind the scenes look at the inner working of the series to a chat with Jeffrey Dean Morgan about his character (Denny Duquette) – it’s a set you need to add to your collection!
