Grey's = ER + OC?

Play it: Grey's Anatomy Season 1
Play it: Grey's Anatomy Ep. 2.01 (Season Premiere)

Another television soundtrack was released today, one for the still relatively new (only 10 episodes so far) drama, Grey's Anatomy. Like The O.C., the show relies heavliy on a indie music soundtrack, only this one is definitely more for the ladies. Tegan & Sara, Jem, The Dittie Bops, Rilo Kiley, The Cardigans, Vaughan Penn, Nellie Mckay, Rosie Thomas (etc.,) and the theme song is by Psapp. Of course, sprinkled in there is some chic-approved male vocals like Wilco and Iron & Wine.

The second season premiered Sunday night (first season was a half one,) and already we're faced with more soap opera-like plotlines ("my boyfriend's married?" "should I, or shouldn't I have the baby?") but also mixes in some interesting character studies.

While it takes place in Seattle, the only Emerald City you see (like Frasier) is setup shots of the Seattle skyline, as the whole of it is filmed in Vancouver B.C. (maybe that's why there's so much Tegan & Sara in the soundtrack, as Tegan's a Vancouverite.)

Which reminds me... does anyone remember Medicine Ball? The short-lived (only 9 episodes) FOX hospital drama from 1995 starred a young Donal Logue (The Tao of Steve, Grounded For Life, Jimmy the cab driver) as an eager Irish intern and was actually shot in Seattle (at the old Sandpoint Naval Base.) Perhaps my memories bad, but it seems like it was ahead of it's time (aside from the surgeon who played guitar in a rock band at night - it's Seattle, dude.)
