Doctors singing during surgery and harmonizing through foreplay made last year's musical episode of "Grey's Anatomy" one of the most memorable in the series' nearly eight-season run. Some critics panned the ABC doctor drama's attempt to go "Glee," but the cast showed musical talent behind those surgical masks. To show that the episode was no fluke, about a dozen of the doctors from Seattle Grace Hospital will take the stage at UCLA's Royce Hall on Sunday to perform select songs from the episode and other memorable tunes from the "Grey's" songbook.

Caught between a bunny and a new girl, the talk of TV this season has been double-X, as in chromosome. What's up with all the women? They're saying "vagina" and going all Count of Monte Cristo! "New Girl" is adork-able (or is she?), "Pan Am" is a female-centric "Mad Men" (or is it?), "The Playboy Club" glamorizes sexism and "Charlie's Angels" is even more ridiculous the second time around! After the 2010-11 season proved dismal for non-males, women came back with a vengeance. We were all so busy talking about the Big Trend that we missed the revolution.

"Rookie Blue" is, to be quick about it, "Grey's Anatomy" with uniforms and guns. That you probably will find that comparison in every review you read of the series, which begins tonight on ABC — in the "Grey's Anatomy," slot — is nothing I can do anything about. But there is no way I can leave it out of this one. I don't say this to warn you off — indeed, it may be just the hook that snares you — only to tell you where we are. We are with pretty young people (two male, three female, as per "Grey's")
