Operations. Relations. Complications.

Everyone keeps talking about medical show and nighttime soap Grey’s Anatomy, despite the fact that the show’s official plotline sounds drier than hospital commissary toast:

A drama centered on the personal and professional lives of five surgical interns and their supervisors.

The show’s tagline brings it a bit closer:

Operations. Relations. Complications.

Now we’re getting someplace.

According to IMDB, it took some thinking before the final title stuck. The fairly unimaginative working titles for the show included Complications, Procedure, Surgeons and Under the Knife. A rose by another other name? Sure. But would it have smelled as sweet?

Season three of Grey’s Anatomy premieres September 21st on ABC. If that’s too far away, season two is available on DVD as of this week. The DVD package includes all 27 episodes of season two on six discs, plus lots of fun extras including commentary by director Jeff Melman and writer Krista Vernoff, four extended episodes, deleted scenes, an exclusive set tour and “Creating ‘Pink Mist’: Anatomy of a Special Effect.”
