Tv Season Info

In the third series of this medical drama, several characters face crises concerning family members, including Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), whose mother (Kate Burton) gets progressively worse as her Alzheimer's advances; and George (T.R. Knight), whose father is admitted to the hospital because of cancer and an aortic-valve problem. George also faces romantic complications, as he grows closer to both Callie (Sara Ramirez) and his dear friend Izzie (Katherine Heigl). Meanwhile, Cristina (Sandra Oh) helps Burke (Isaiah Washington) cover up his hand tremors, and she also struggles to get along with his parents. Burke eventually becomes one of several candidates vying for the position of new chief of surgery, competing alongside Derek (Patrick Dempsey), Mark (Eric Dane) and Addison (Kate Walsh). Addison eventually contemplates a move to California.

Critic Reviews for Grey's Anatomy Season 3

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

The high is gone, but you keep watching because you really want to see what rock bottom looks like. I can see it in the not too far distance: It's shale.

Jun 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Grey's Anatomy definitely lost points in credibility for me.

Jan 23, 2014 | Full Review…

If you stop watching the season right before the first episode in the three-part block involving the ferry crash, it's a pretty decent season.

Oct 2, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The very best thing about Grey's Anatomy is that its strongest characters are women. Unfortunately, none of them is Meredith Grey.

Sep 11, 2013 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Grey's Anatomy never pretended to be as deep as Lost. At its best, it's a serious guilty pleasure: death, disease, hot bodies swaddled in scrubs. But, frankly, the women are awful.

Mar 14, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

In the end, as we watch these 25 episodes (although I'd certainly counsel anyone to skip the colossally awful episodes 22 and 23 ...), we come to the realization that this just might be the most significant television program of our day.

Sep 11, 2013 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Grey's Anatomy will offer up a charming, enjoyable diversion even if it stays on its current repetitive course and rides that pony into the sunset.

May 18, 2007 | Full Review…

Grey's Anatomy is certainly one of those guilty pleasures that many may not admit to.

Jan 26, 2007 | Rating: 8.3/9 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Grey's Anatomy: Season 3

  • Nov 04, 2018
    Pessoalmente, eu amei a terceira temporada (incluindo o seu primeiro episódio). Fiquei muito feliz quando o Derek declarou o seu amor a Meredith. O acidente trágico do ferryboat foi de tirar o fôlego... E, finalmente, o término da temporada foi tão triste e o meu coração partiu-se aos pedaços quando Cristina, Meredith e Derek permanecem juntos.
  • Feb 09, 2015
    64% Although fun at times, Season 3 just doesn't live up to the previous 2, and lacks in dialogue, story and acting.
  • Dec 18, 2014
    It's still a very good show, I noticed i didn't cry as much for this season!
