After years of being told how amazing this show is, I brought the boxset and I'm currently on episode 11 of series 1.

I love it

My favourite character is Alex at the moment but I don't dislke anyone.

I've seen Private Practice (series 1-4) so know Addison from that and it's weird seeing her and Derek together after hearing so much about him.

I never thought Alex came across that well in Season 1, but each to their own I guess

I enjoyed the first four seasons of the show, then not so much after that - although still watching it

I see Alex as being like Sawyer from Lost - I'm sure he has layers and reasons for being how he is

I also love Christina, Derek and George Meredith did annoy me for a bit but I like her now

It gets very good. It also gets very cheesy in places though but there have been more than a few episodes that have made me blub like a girl

It has good patches and bad patches, but at it's best, it's absolutely gripping!

The first two seasons are amazing, season 3 is dodgy and after that it picks up quite a bit again. I have just fallen out with it at the end of season 8 (like many others) because they did something that upset us a lot!

You'll see when you get that far! Enjoy! There are loads of amazing characters to come, that you haven't even met yet

They showed the first couple of seasons on Really, but they stopped after that, which was really annoying as I was really enjoying it.

I envy you! I have Series 1 to 7 on DVD and am currently rewatching Series 8, although along with some other fans, I was not happy with the last episode.

I like Alex as well, but as you watch, you may find like me you have different favourites in different series, but my favourite in all of them is Bailey and you will see how her character grows and develops during the series. Other favourites are Meredith, Cristina and Addison and a character who introduced in Series 2 and is just brilliant, well I think so!

The only series I'm not that keen on is Series 4, but even that has it's moments. I'm currently doing a rewatch of 1 ~ 7 on DVD and am up to Ep 13 Series 5. I'm just grateful to Channel 5 as a couple of years ago they showed the whole first series at lunchtime and I got hooked then.

I'm also watching from the beginning for the first time, bought seasons 1-7 boxset on DVD and am currently on season 2 episode 9. I dont really have a favourite although I really like George and Meredith but dont really like Addison so doubt I will enjoy Private Practice much but I will give it a try for a few episodes after I finish season 2 of Grey's

Addison remains in Greys as a regular character through Season 3 too. Towards the end of the series, there's a few episodes that heavily feature Addison meeting the Private Practice characters. You'd be better off waiting until then if you wanted to give PP a go.

I cried then was angry then thought "ah well"

Love this show. Can't wait for more. It has its ups and downs but the ups far outweigh the downs and after 8 seasons its still a strong show.

I watched 1-5 as a boxset and enjoyed it very much. George is my favourite character.

Unfortunately it turns out that I cannot stand Meredith - a bit of a disadvantage when she's the eponymous character.

I now sometimes watch it on Sky - completely out of order - I have no idea what happened at the end of Season 8 so am off to find out!!

Ah, I did happen to see that finale.

Meh (but then I had disengaged from the series by then).

I've been looking at clips on youtube and saw Alex crying and Izzy hugging him in the last episode of series 4-why is he crying?

This should fill you in. If you've watched all of Season 4 it doesn't give anything away.

I was never keen on him at the beginning he was the typical bad boy (arse) who always gets the girl - which in real life bugs me to high heaven.

But I kind of like him more now than I did in the past.

The only characters I have never gotten used to and like are Izzy and Meredith.

Bailey, for me, really is the glue that holds everyone together. She's fantastic.

I'll say something about Alex, but i'll spoiler it just in case - it doesn't give anything away plot-wise (i think..), but best be careful i suppose

Yeh Bailey is amazing!

Thanks for that, I've read some stuff about what happens to Alex and can't wait to see it on screen
