Grey's Anatomy’s first season might have only been nine episodes, but they’re nine episodes that can’t be missed. They introduce McDreamy, lay the foundations of Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Burke (Isaiah Washington), and create the chemistry of the Izzie (Katerine Heigl)-Meredith (Ellen Pompeo)-George (T.R. Knight) household. They’re the beginning.
So just in case you missed them or are dying to refresh your memory, we’ve found a few places you can watch them without having to put away your computer.
iTunes First up is the obvious (but not free) option: iTunes. After all, Apple does rule the world. And for $19.99, you can have the entire first season in HD on your laptop, iPad, iPod and all of the apple products you can imagine. Grey’s coming with you wherever you go? Sounds rather heavenly to us.
Hulu With Hulu, the episodes have to stay on your laptop, and you need a solid Internet connection to watch them, but hey, at least they’re free!
SideReel When in doubt, check out SideReel. It is bound to have a number of free and paid options for your Grey’s viewing pleasure.
Amazon Instant This paid option is cheaper than iTunes — you can get the entire season for $13.99 — but Amazon Instant isn’t the same as downloading an episode (aka you need to have Internet to watch the season).
Netflix If you’re a Netflix member and you already pay your dues, make the most of your money by spending some quality time with our favorite interns (back when they were interns). If you’re not a member, it might be worth the $7.99 a month to get caught up. Plus, you can always cancel your membership once it’s over, but you didn’t hear it from us.
And don’t forget that you can always buy the season on DVD. Trust us, you won’t regret it. Three words: McDreamy’s naked butt.
Yep, grab some popcorn and enjoy!
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT onABC.
