January 8th, 2011 7:57am EST
The cast of 'Grey's Anatomy.'
“Grey’s Anatomy” has finally returned from the winter break, with this week offering the first new chapter in the lives of the surgeons at Seattle Grace. But will Cristina (Sandra Oh) ever return to work? And will the delicious Scott Foley continue to guest star?

Episode 11 of Season 7 began as many have recently: In the bedroom of Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey), and at the beginning of an argument. In the last episode, Derek took Cristina on a fishing trip—much to the disapproval of Meredith and Cristina’s new husband, Owen (Kevin McKidd). Meredith was grilling Derek ...

Sandra Oh as Cristina.
“Grey’s Anatomy” Season 7 continues to chronicle the return to “normal” for the surgeons at Seattle Grace, none with more difficult than Cristina (Sandra Oh). With her departure from the program, and after a disastrous evening of bartending at Joe’s, Cristina continues to be adrift. The drama ensues, only in episode 10 it is highlighted by festive holiday décor at Seattle Grace and numerous Christmas melodies on the soundtrack.

November 24th, 2010 4:40pm EST
Grey's Anatomy is to be turned into a musical for a one-off episode which will test the cast's singing skills.

The medical drama, which stars Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey, will follow in the footsteps of hit teen series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which produced a popular all-singing-all-dancing installment in 2001. Executive producer Shonda Rhimes is adamant the musical episode will be done tastefully, and insists fans will be surprised by some of the stars' talent.

She tells, "Nobody is going to be dancing and singing down the halls; that's not our show. Our show is know...

Cristina and Arizona.
This week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy reminded viewers that Seattle Grace is a teaching hospital. Unfortunately, in the (prolonged) aftermath of the Season 6 finale, certain members of the surgical team have continued to balk at resuming their education—none more so than Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh). But the show must go on, and the episode 5 of Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 found the residents taking charge as temporary attending physicians.

Chief Webber (James Pickens Jr.) announced to the attending staff were to present their vision for how to spend a million dollars. “The evolution of the craft...

October 16th, 2010 9:12pm EDT
Meredith and Derek share a private moment.
This week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy focused on the interpersonal relationships among the staff of Seattle Grace and the biology which fuels every human and their relationships. Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) visit to the OBYGN took top billing, with the doctor telling Meredith that she had a “hostile” womb. On the wake of her miscarriage in the Season 6 finale, the news was a harsh wake-up call for the currently childless couple.

As usual, Meredith fretted over the diagnosis; her worry only increased when she met one of the mandatory patients for Episode 4. The wom...

Derek, Meredith and Cristina in bed together.
The third episode of Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 continued to illustrate the vulnerabilities of the surgeons and staff of Seattle Grace following the murder spee Season 6 finale. This week’s episode featured unwanted family members, a rare HPV condition, and Cristina’s continued struggle with surgery.

The episode began with Cristina (Sandra Oh) slipping into Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek’s (Patrick Dempsey) bedroom. Owen (Kevin McKidd) was on-call, and she couldn’t sleep, so Meredith invited her into their bed much to the surprise of Derek. “I can’t sleep when you’re not there,” Cristina e...

Cristina on the floor of the O.R.
The familiar faces at Seattle Grace are still recovering from the traumatic events of the Season 6 finale, but Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Derek (Patrick Demsey), Cristina (Sandra Oh) and the rest of the Grey’s Anatomy cast are finally getting on the road to recovery—slowly and painfully, but surely. The theme of tonight’s episode was lightning; how it rarely strikes in one place twice, and how quickly life can be over with a single bolt of chance.

The episode began with Meredith continuing to campaign for approval to return to surgery, resorting to crocodile tears and a lukewarm confession o...

The doctors of
“We’re all fine,” explained Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) during an early scene in the Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 premiere. For anyone who saw the explosive, heart-wrenching Season 6 finale, it might be hard to believe that anyone at Seattle Grace could be anything near fine. “We may look the same, we probably do—the change isn’t visible, at least not in most of us. But we’re all changed, completely—forever.” If you need a refresher on the events that happened in the Season 6 finale, read my review of the episode.

The first indicator that everyone on Grey’s Anatomy isn’t fine is the scene with Mere...

'Grey's Anatomy' Season 7 Is Finally Here!

Why We Love Grey
Blood, guts, and horrifying procedures mixed with humor, friendship, and sex only scratch the surface of ABC's Grey's Anatomy. Trying to explain why Thursday nights from now until the end of the show's season are tied up is like trying to explain reasons behind why you love your favorite pair of sneakers. You just do. When something so gripping steals your life away for an hour every Thursday, it can be hard to say why, but we are definitely going to give it a go because this show is worth every second.

Grey's Anatomy started out its first season in 2005 with 9 episodes, and has since move...

Ellen Pompeo
We spotted a dressed down Ellen Pompeo outside Sherman Oaks in Los Angeles earlier this week. The "Grey's Anatomy" star wore tight gray pants and a somewhat sheer white top.

The actress says her character is going to have "some frustrating episodes" when the ABC medical drama returns on Sept. 23.

She told TV Guide, "The role that they have given Meredith is to take care of everybody and to try to make sure that everybody else is OK. She's the role of the caretaker, which, I guess, is her way of not dealing with her own thing."

40-year-old Ellen gave birth to daughter Stella Luna Pompeo I...

Stars Who Wouldn't Cheat On Their Wives

Stars Who Wouldn
Although this may be a bold statement to make- not all celebrities cheat on their wives. It is true that we were shocked when Tiger Woods' mistresses simultaneously appeared like they were emerging out of some whore clown car, and we still can't wrap out heads around why Jesse James would cheat on America's sweetheart, Sandra Bullock but there are men in Hollywood who are devoted to their wives. Just because they are famous and can essentially have any woman they please, these stars genuinely love their wives and have never strayed.

The British actor, who has four children and a step-son in real life, came atop a survey by LoveFilm to find the "hottest film father" for his role as dad-of-two Graham Simpkins in The Holiday.

Will Smith came in second for his role as a dad in heart-warming drama The Pursuit of Happyness, in which he starred alongside his real-life son Jaden Smith.

Bizarrely, Star Wars villain Darth Vader came in at number three as Luke Skywalker's estranged dad, while childless George Clo...

Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey is facing a lawsuit from advertising executives who allege the actor's race car team owes them money from a sponsorship deal they helped arrange.

Patrick Dempsey has his stint on hit medical drama Grey's Anatomy to thank for escaping a speeding ticket on Thursday after a star-struck police officer recognized the actor and let him go.

Dempsey, who races professionally in his spare time, admits he finds it "really hard to go slow" on the streets after being behind the wheel of his race cars.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'The Wolfman,' 'Valentine's Day,'

February 8th, 2010 10:15am EST
The Wolfman
Pierre Morel's film from last week "From Paris With Love," isn't awesomely bad, but instead it's just plain bad. As an action movie, it's visually entertaining because it engrosses you in the fight scenes and shootouts

, while maintaining solid pacing. These elements are completely overshadowed however by the horrendously written dialogue and plot.

The story doesn't introduce any specific elements to engage the audience or fully explain the terrorist plan the protagonists are hoping to thwart. In some instances the dialogue is so ludicrous that you find yourself audibly laughing at ...
