Grey’s Anatomy – Season 4

Season four of Grey’s Anatomy really hit the spot when it came to shows to watch this year. It has been one of my favorite shows since it first aired, so it is no surprise when I tell you I have seasons 1-3 already on DVD.

This season picked up with the former interns (minus George) becoming Residents at Seattle Grace Hospital with new and eager interns waiting for them. One of Christina’s interns is Lexie – Meredith’s sister! Another new character in this season is Rose (the nurse) that Derek dates. Erica Hahn, which was in a few other episodes returns as the new head of Cardiothoracic Surgery due to Preston Burke’s departure from the series. Addison Montgomery also left the show (but does make a guest appearance) since she moved to California and is now on her own show, Private Practice. The surgical situations that arise are always interesting and perhaps even cringe-worthy. I personally don’t know how surgeons do what they do, but more props to them for that!

Due to the writer’s strike we are only getting 17 of the episodes out of the 26 they were supposed to have made this year. That being said, I still love the season… especially the ending of the season finale.

It ended with Meredith finally reaching out with open arms to Derek (in such a romantic notion)! I can’t wait to see what actually happens when they come back for season five! I hope Meredith and Derek are happy and moving into their new house. However, I know writers like us to have drama and a reason to watch so it is probably unlikely they will be that happy yet…
