Having the power to cure someone of a disease or illness has always been something of interest to me. Whether it’s listening to their problems or putting a Band-Aid on a cut, the role doctors and nurses play drew me to the TV series, Grey’s Anatomy. The series stars Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey and Patrick Dempsey as Dereck Sheperd along with many other important cast members. They begin the show as interns at Seattle Grace Hospital and compete to be the best surgeon. They start off watching, assisting, and observing all different medical tasks such as procedure, paper work, and surgeries completed by the best surgeons in the country.
Relationships that begin as rivalries turn into every lasting friendships, with some growing more than just friendly, such as Meredith and Dereck who met for an anonymous one night stand only to discover that they work at the same hospital where Dereck already has his foot in the door as the hospital’s top neurosurgeon. An awkward and puzzled Meredith does her best to ignore the last night events and act professional in her environment, trying her best not to slip up her first day as an intern. Not to forget Meredith has been surrounded by hospitals, surgeries, and medical talk due to the fact her mother was a doctor before her with the reputation as one of the best. Being surrounded her whole life Meredith has a pretty good idea how to win the game. I mean she already has the last name of a winner.
Grey’s Anatomy is full of love, lust, romance, gore, curiosity, and learning. A tad extreme it gives you a good idea what surgeons deal with on a day to day basis. The television series was well put together and keeps the viewers wanting more.
