'Grey's Anatomy: The Complete Fifth Season'
(Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sara Ramirez, et al / 7-Disc DVD / NR / 2009 / BVHE)
Overview: It's all about the moments at Seattle Grace Hospital, life saing and life changing moments. Grey's Anatomy: The Complete Fifth Season is the relationship drama with heartfelt emotion that focuses on moments in the balance of life and death, love and relationships and astounding medical cases.
DVD Verdict: 'Grey's Anatomy' creater Shondra Rhimes does it again. The season started out great. The dream Mer had about Derrick left me glad that it was just a dream. I was iffie with the beginning of the Izzie and dead guy storyline, but knew that something amazing was going to happen. I was right. Elevator love letters was my favorite. (Other then the season finale).
New Characters: I was among those who didn't like Dr. Hahn, and wasn't sad to see her go. Arizona, her Peds Dr. replacement has been awesome, and I've loved her interactions with Callie. Mark and Lexie's relationship has been awesome to watch evolve. But Owen... omg Owen Hunt made this season for me.
His character alone would be awesome, but his relationship with Christina has been my favorite of the season, and I'm glad he'll be back. Izzy and Alex FINALLY got their shizz together and decided to be mature responseable adults. Kind of. But her situation made it imparetive the they figure out their issues and get moving.
The best point made in this entire season was when Christina realized that Mer did change and she was healing. That opened a door for us to view Mer-Der in a new relationship and for Christina and Owen to take a chance.
As for anyone that wonders why George fell to the back burner. The show has made no secret to him wanting out of his contract. T.R. Knight is an amazing actor and I hope to see him soon. They could never get a new actor to play George. The bottom line is, the redemption that Grey's gives is the moment they reveal what is going on with Izzie. It's a powerful story and I can't wait for Season 6 to come back. P.S. Thank for banning Hahn to the parking lot. She made me almost stop watching the show with her horrible attitude!
