Last night’s Grey’s Anatomy was a faux documentary episode, and that for me screamed one thing: ER. If we’re going to go ’90s doctor shows (oh please, let’s), Grey’s more closely resembles Chicago Hope — melodrama, metaphor, more absurd patients, a slower pace. But going documentary-style for an episode is so classically ER in my mind that I can’t help but compare the two. READ FULL STORY

After viewing the “fight reel” below of Kevin McKidd kicking men’s butts during a recent training session, I have the strong desire to see him in a smart, sexy action film with Daniel Craig. (Pause while you think about that. Go ahead. Nice, right?) The session was shot for internal purposes a few week ago, but somehow leaked online. Not that McKidd minds. He started training years ago with stunt men and martial arts masters for the Guy Moshe film Bunraku — shot about a year and a half ago — and liked it so much he kept up with it. It shows. If you’re sensitive to the sound effect of breaking bones, I would mute the video around :22 and :38. His moves are sharp and powerful, and watching him flip a few guys around is as enjoyable as seeing him knife those dudes at the end. (I found myself hoping for fake blood splatter.) READ FULL STORY
submitting herself for Emmy consideration despite appearing in less than half of the last Grey’s Anatomy season, the next minute she’s telling the world she wasn’t so fond of her character, Izzie Stevens, by the time she left the hit drama. “I felt very protective of Izzie,” she told USA Today. “I really loved her. I felt she was an admirable woman who certainly made mistakes. But I was starting to not like her, and that bothered me.” That Katherine Heigl — there really is no telling what polarizing thing she’s going to say or do next. Though at least she’s self-aware: “I’ve tried to keep my mouth closed for a minute, and I can’t,” Heigl told the newspaper. “At one point I got so paranoid and afraid, and I was qualifying everything I said and apologizing for everything. I realized it was ridiculous.”One minute she’s
Fair enough. Nothing wrong with speaking your mind. I’m going to respectfully disagree with her, however, on Izzie’s non-likability. And to be honest, I’m a little surprised to find myself defending Dr. Stevens — my first instinct was that I, too, hated her, but it turns out that upon reflection, I just hated her storylines.

If you’re like us, you watched last night’s wrenching Grey’s Anatomy finale wondering: Where the heck did all this gunman’s rage come from? Well, it began among much sexier storylines such as Alex’s secret brother showing up, Callie pining for a baby, and April crushing on Derek. In fact, you’ll see from this clip (from the April 1 episode “Sympathy for the Parents”) that April and Lexie could barely wait to bolt from the room when future hospital-shooter Gary Clark was getting the news about his wife’s euthanasia wishes — and it wasn’t even because they were so emotionally drained from his pain, but because they were itching to talk more about April having the hots for Lexie’s brother-in-law. The Gary Clark stuff starts around 2:30 here: READ FULL STORY
this afternoon that Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice exec producer Shonda Rhimes will be even busier this fall, now that her medical drama Off the Map was picked up by ABC. Starring Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace), Jason George (Grey’s), Caroline Dhavernas (Wonderfalls), and Martin Henderson, Map follows a team of medical professionals who start work at a tropical island clinic. It will be interesting to see how this series pans out — I remain a dedicated Grey’s fan (yes, even through the dark days of Gizzie and ghost sex), but I’ve never really gotten into Private Practice. Here’s hoping a third round of meds won’t represent diminishing returns. But, hey, if anyone can pull three medical dramas off, Rhimes can, right? And shouldn’t every series be set on a tropical island? EW’s Michael Ausiello reported
TVGuide.com first broke the story.) She’ll play a patient named Mary as part of an explosive — and, of course, top secret — cliffhanger. Bailey — who’s having one hell of a season as a newly single gal — will be her doctor, but beyond that, details are being kept under heavily guarded wraps. She comes as part of a grand tradition of recognizable names as patients, usually quick, juicy roles like Sara Gilbert’s euthanized patient two weeks ago and Demi Lovato’s upcoming stretch as a schizophrenic. Moore did that other hospital show, Scrubs, once upon a time, but it’ll be nice to see her get a chance at something wonderfully dramatic (sorry, A Walk to Remember doesn’t count) instead of the lighter stuff she’s shown such a knack for on the likes of How I Met Your Mother and Entourage. Then again, I have a girl crush on her, whether she’s in the Christian high school-sendup Saved! or singing “I Could Break Your Heart Any Day of the Week.”Mandy Moore will check into Seattle Grace for Grey’s Anatomy‘s two-hour season finale May 20, EW.com has confirmed.

So I ask you, less biased PopWatchers: What do you think of the casting? And while you’re at it: What do you think this giant cliffhanger might involve?
loving Joe Jonas, and now, will shoot a guest spot on Grey’s Anatomy. As she tweeted earlier today: “I’m so thrilled to announce that this week I’m shooting Grey’s Anatomy!!!!!!!! :D AHHH!!!!” It’s such big news, that Demi used not one, not 11, but 12 exclamation points!Oh, Demi Lovato. Looks like the Disney youngin’ is having a moment. She’s appeared on American Idol, is dating and
Apparently, Demi will be playing a girl who may be suffering from schizophrenia in a May episode. (Sniff. They grow up so fast.) I’m into the casting, just as long as it doesn’t involve a deer and shock paddles.
What about you, PopWatchers? Will you tune in to watch Demi Lovato on Grey’s? And are you jealous that she’s experiencing “a week of fulfilling one of my biggest dreams……. :D YAYYYYY!!!!!” when the biggest dream you fulfilled this week was finding the butter toffee peanuts you had been looking all over NYC for (insert: sad emoticon)? Maybe that’s just me.
I know this is a joke about how predictable those montage-y scenes at the end of shows are, but… Lost, Gossip Girl, Friday Night Lights, Gilmore Girls, Scrubs (not a drama, but still), old Grey’s Anatomy? I love those shows. The song starts about 1 minute in:
