I’m sure most of you have heard of the ABC hit drama Grey’s Anatomy, which is written and produced by Shonda Rhimes. But just in case, here’s a summary: Grey’s Anatomy is a highly emotional, intellectually stimulating drama that follows the life of Dr. Meredith Grey, M. D. Grey fights to earn her rightful spot at Seattle Grace Hospital and, at the same time, to earn her spot in the heart of Dr. Derrick Shepherd, better known as “McDreamy.”
At first glance, people might think of Grey’s Anatomy as a “mom show,” which is exactly what I thought when I first heard about it. However, after just one episode, I was completely and utterly obsessed. And I still am today. I don’t even mind re-watching all eleven seasons over again. There’s something to be said about the emotional roller coaster that people get on as soon as they begin to watch this show. They become attached to the characters and the dynamic relationship that they share with each other. They will quickly come to learn not to get attached to these characters because often they die or move away.
It is surprising that the writers and producers have not lost viewers over these deaths. Instead, they have enjoyed a growing audience. Their writing has people wishing for someone like Meredith Grey or Christina Yang to have their back through thick and thin or a “McDreamy” to rescue them from sinking into the dark, deep abyss of loneliness and despair. People have even decided to go to medical school and become surgeons after watching this television show. No matter who you are, Grey’s Anatomy will leave you reaching for the stars of the greatest possibilities.
