Grey's Anatomy: Season Premiere Reviews

Here is what some of the reviewers said about the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy:

Four Residents and a Funeral: When the remaining four original interns stepped away from the burial unable to control their snickers, it had the authenticity, emotion and humor of season 1, and reminded us of why we started TiVo-ing the show in the first place.

Dang, Yang: Owen’s shrink instructed him to abstain from sex with Cristina, saying, “To heal, he’s going to have to start talking. If you get lost in lust, he won’t start.” No sex made Cristina grumpy. She made one inappropriate comment after another (including one about cancer patients unfairly getting the good popsicles), nicknamed a boat-accident “patient ceviche” and butted in on Bailey’s case.

Group Think: The duty of narrating fell on all the regulars this time and it was a nice and unexpected touch, especially as the voiceover dealt with the stages of grief and how they look different depending on whose wearing them. Bravo. - People

Overall the episode was a bit more on point than season five, maybe due to some new writers and the fact that the the absence of George gives the rest of the crew some much needed extra screen time. Hopefully the whole Izzie story line will take a back seat and we can get some major Bailey, Callie, Owen and Christina action this year. Hopefully. - NY Post


Hottest couple: Owenstina. Sorry, MerDer. Kevin McKidd (Owen) is awesome, and at least Sandra Oh (Cristina) can be shown from the neck down. - The Hollywood Gossip

I would, however, suffer for sure without Cristina and Owen. Their romance provided a nice counterbalance to all the surrounding death and sadness: Owen and Cristina quietly, briefly holding hands, waiting for an ambulance to pull up. Cristina trying to seduce Owen with the black lace bra she was wearing under her scrubs. She wasn't thrilled when Owen said his shrink was against them having sex. ''I'm saying she's a prude,'' Cristina pouted. ''She's prudy and misguided.'' He explained that the shrink doesn't want him to ''bury himself'' in Cristina, which he surely would if they did it. And never did abstinence sound hotter.

In a twist on the classic Mary Tyler Moore episode about Chuckles the Clown's memorial services, Izzie had to leave the graveside when she started laughing hysterically. Fellow residents Alex, Cristina, and Meredith followed her away from the mourners in concern, only to find her cracking up — and to start cracking up with her. It was the perfect laugh-so-we-don't-cry moment, and it was a nice extra touch putting the four remaining of the original intern class together for their own kind of bereavement: - EW

In the midst of all the sadness, I love the scenes with Christina and Hunt this week. They are a much-needed breath of fresh air in the midst of all the sadness — and of course Christina wants to use sex to combat any sadness about George. In fact, she even offers to have sex with Izzie, but the therapist still says that Christina and Hunt need to wait. - Buzzsugar
