Tv Season Info

In the sixth series of this medical drama, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) bask in the glow of being unofficially married, while the abrupt marriage between Izzie (Katherine Heigl) and Alex (Justin Chambers) begins to fall apart in the wake of a patient mishap. Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) see their relationship intensify, despite Callie's father's attempts to get her to renounce her homosexuality. Meanwhile, Meredith makes a personal sacrifice to help her ill father (Jeff Perry); and Mark (Eric Dane) discovers that he is a father when his 18-year-old daughter shows up, pregnant and in need of a place to stay.

Critic Reviews for Grey's Anatomy Season 6

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Most of these characters were merely changing back to what they were several seasons ago. This is not a good thing and it's not meant to be, for them, at least. Frankly, it's even worse for us.

Sep 12, 2013 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

This is Grey's Anatomy and with that comes the usual drama, sex, love and whacky medical mysteries thrown in the mix to keep things moving. If that's what you're looking for, I think you'll enjoy the season premiere just fine.

Sep 5, 2013 | Full Review…

The episode titles set the stage, but there were plenty of developments and vintage Grey's Anatomy moments you never saw coming.

Sep 25, 2009 | Full Review…

While the return of our favorite oversexed surgeons was wobbly, it had its moments - and was characteristically chock full of quotable moments.

Oct 2, 2013 | Full Review…

I am at least convinced that nerve-racked Meredith and her buddy band of handsome cutups have a higher calling than liposuction, insurance fraud, grandstanding, and golf.

Audience Reviews for Grey's Anatomy: Season 6

    You lost me for quite a few weeks because of Georges death. It was the hardest on to go through on the show and to this day I still can't watch that episode again.

    Grey’s Anatomy is not just a show about surgeons, it is also a drama, comedy and romance, it not only mixes all those things together but also combines the complications of science today. The show is so intense it keeps you at the edge of your seat. Excites you. Pulls you in where you can not stop watching. Especially the surgeries. They seem so real, with the blood spattering, guts popping, beating hearts, pulsing brains The surgeons all have special things they do before cutting open a patient. Pops their knuckles, says something, pray, etc. One in particular is Derek Shepherd. Before he starts on a surgery he says “It’s a great day to save lives, now let’s get started”. Cliffhangers are the best for this show. They leave you wanting more and guessing at the end of the episodes. Many episodes throughout all the seasons. Grey's Anatomy is nothing but an inspiring, intense, dramatic show that will have you binge watching for days. I’d recommend this show to anyone and everyone.

    Esta temporada foi boa, mas, de facto, não foi a melhor. Chorei durante o primeiro episódio quando soube com certeza que o George estava morto e acho que senti muitas emoções, desde o riso, a empolgação, o horror, o medo e a tristeza. As minhas únicas críticas a esta temporada são a saída da Izzie e a razoável qualidade de alguns episódios.
