Grey's Anatomy 101: Seattle Grace, Unauthorized (Smart Pop)by Leah Wilson
Synopses & Reviews
The 2005-2006 seasons smash hit Greys Anatomy swiftly eclipsed its Desperate Housewives lead-in, in ratings, in critical claim and in vocal viewer enthusiasm. What could have been just another hospital drama is elevated by sharp, clever writing, strong female characters and a stellar ensemble cast of multi-ethnic actors. With 20+ million viewers tuning in every week, Greys Anatomy was the new must-see television show of the year. From lighthearted relationship speculations to analyses of deeper themes, Greys Anatomy 101 gives new perspectives on all facets of the series. If Addison hadnt showed up, would Meredith and Derek have stayed together? How is Greys Anatomy the first real 21st century show? Why is everything in Greys Anatomy so, well, gray? And what would Nietzsche have to say about George OMalley? The writers in Greys Anatomy 101 give fans more of their favorite television show, delivering writing as smart, as funny, and as earnest as the show they love.

This book is distributed by Independent Publishers Group. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
"Grey's Anatomy 101" is a collection of essays on the smash-hit television show, Grey's Anatomy, and is not authorized by the ABC network, creators or producers of Grey's Anatomy, or any entity associated with the show. Thoughtful and refreshing essays weigh in on how the wildly popular hospital drama, "Grey's Anatomy," rises above its genre in this anthology. With its sharp writing, strong female characters, and stellar cast of ethnically diverse actors, the show made an immediate splash with viewers. Topics range from lighthearted relationship commentary and speculation--"Why Dr. Meredith Grey and Dr. Derek Shepherd Don't Mix" and "Picking Up Men in Bars"--to the analysis of more serious themes, such as "Shades of Grey: The Moral Ambiguity of Grey's Anatomy" and "George O'Malley, Nietzschean Superman."
