TV Show Review - Grey's Anatomy

Grey’s Anatomy is a medical drama that debuted on the American broadcasting company (ABC) network in 2005. The series follows the life of Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), the daughter of esteemed general surgeon Ellis Grey (Kate Burton). The show focuses on the personal and professional lives of surgical interns and their medical mentors. Some of the main characters are Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson), Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr), Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers).

The acting in the show is very convincing, passionate, and emotive. My favorite character is Meredith Grey because she is a very interesting character in the show. Nothing in Meredith's life is easy, everyone in her life either dies or leaves. Ellen Pompeo is an amazing actress. She makes you really feel what she’s feeling in the show. In the beginning of the show she is just another one of the interns, but in the end she is an amazing surgeon that everyone looks up to. Meredith definitely goes through a lot in the show, but no matter how hard it got for her, it just made her stronger. Her mother had Alzheimer's, she survived a shooting, she survived a plane crash, and she survived a bomb.

Grey’s Anatomy is full of mixed emotions, in a way that makes the audience want to keep watching. One of the characters that really surprised me was Alex Karev (Justin Chambers). When he first came onto the show he was really mean and cocky and didn’t care about anyone but himself. But over the years he became a better person and actually specialized in pediatric surgery. He’s great with the children and a fantastic surgeon and likes to take risks that will save patients lives.

The show has sixteen seasons and I have watched each season at least ten times. I would highly recommend watching Grey’s Anatomy if you like a show with a lot of drama in it. I wouldn’t recommend watching Grey’s Anatomy if seeing blood and trauma makes you uncomfortable. I think Grey’s anatomy has moments when it teaches you life lessons, especially learning from our mistakes.
