I was really pumped for this new show that premiered on Sunday night after Desperate Housewives. Anyone catch it? Here is an article on the show from the New York Daily News.

GREY'S ANATOMY

Sunday night at 10, ABC. ABC is using the hour after the first fresh "Desperate Housewives" since the Paleolithic era to launch a series: "Grey's Anatomy," a medical drama borrowing the "Boston Legal" time slot for spring.

It's a good gambit - and a good show.

"Grey's Anatomy," premiering Sunday night at 10, stars Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey, whom we follow on her first day at a Seattle hospital as one of a squad of first-year surgical interns. Hence the title, a play on the most well-known medical textbook.

"Grey's Anatomy," written and created by Shonda Rhimes, captures all the hectic exhilaration, disappointment and fear of someone in a high-pressure hospital environment.

"St. Elsewhere" did this stuff brilliantly with residents, "ER" does it with emergency-room doctors, and "Doogie Howser, M.D." did it with an underage genius.

"Grey's" does it with a female protagonist, and one who's satisfyingly complex. So are some of her fellow surgical interns, including Christina Yang (Sandra Oh of "Sideways"), an intensely competitive and intelligent woman; Isobel Stevens (Katherine Heigl of "Roswell"), whose beauty is held against her, and George O'Malley (T.R. Knight), a nervous but nice doctor in training.

The physicians overseeing their training are complicated, and satisfying, as well.

Patrick Dempsey, in a role that could return him to sex-symbol status, plays Derek Shepherd, the cockiest TV doctor to swagger in scrubs since George Clooney left "ER." Chandra Wilson is humorously tough as no-nonsense Miranda Bailey, and Isaiah Washington plays the brutally honest, yet impressively gifted, Preston Burke.

Peter Horton, one of the stars of "thirtysomething," coaxes very smooth and credible performances out of the entire ensemble. This is a group of actors and characters likely to catch on quickly - especially since Rhimes gives them all moments, and quirks, and serves up more than a few surprises.

Sunday's pilot covers the first 48 hours of Grey's first rotation. It begins with a comic twist, and ends with a dramatic one. In between is as satisfying a medical mystery as any on "House," and a hospital full of intriguing and often conflicted characters.

The best thing about "Grey's Anatomy" is the way it homes in on what it feels like to be at a new job, with new pressures, competitive new colleagues, demanding bosses and one life-and-death situation after another.

By the end of the first hour, there's no way not to feel empathy for Grey; she's absolutely charming, real and touching. By the end of the second hour, the moments she spends with her mother will touch you deeply, and the justifiable tantrum thrown by Heigl's Isobel will rank as the most potent wardrobe malfunction so far in 2005.

The pilot episodes of "St. Elsewhere" and "Doogie Howser" both started where "Grey's" does, with the first tour of duty - an effective way to introduce both the stresses and the players.

And when that tour is over, with "Grey's" as with those impressive predecessors, you're eager to return for more. This, folks, is the "Anatomy" of a success.

I loved it. I was such a great episode. I love the part where they are about to get into the elevator (the second time) and he was talking about not kissing. He is just so cute!

Why oh why did Dr. Shepherd have to be cheating on his wife? I really liked them together as a couple. Now next season what's going to happen? Hopefully he is legally separated or something like that so it won't be that bad or he's already in the process of a divorce or something. That wife did seem like a B***h though. didn't she?

Anothe Grey's Anatomy fan! YAY!!!!!! I love this show. I have been hooked since the first episode. I hate how they left us hanging. I think Dr. Sheperd and George are my faves. Well, so is Alex, Izzy, Christina, Burke, the Nazy and Meredith.
