The medical drama series Grey’s Anatomy, which first debuted on March 27, 2005 and is currently in its 12th season, is an up close and personal look at the lives of doctors and nurses while they’re on call. The whole show is centered on Meredith Grey, an aspiring surgeon and daughter of one of the best surgeons, Dr. Ellis Grey. The show takes place at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital, renowned for its prestigious residency program.

While trying to maintain normal lives and relationships, the surgical interns and residents also have to cope with the difficulties that come with becoming seasoned doctors, which is there main goal. Meredith goes through many challenges both professional and personal during this show. These challenges affect not only her, but also her family and fellow co-workers.

If you’re not into the whole in-depth look and feel for surgery or anything involving more gory scenes, then this show is not for you. Many of my friends love this show for exactly that reason, but then there’s some who just cant even see a small sight of blood without freaking out.

Freshman Nicole Wadolowska said, “It’s a very educational show that is dramatic at points but you can learn many new things you don’t usually see everyday.” Coming off of what she stated I feel that’s very true. Even if you have no insight on this show by watching just one episode it can be almost a life changing moment because this show portrays scenes that are usually behind the scenes for most people. I feel people should try this show out give it a chance, even if the medical side of things doesn’t initially appeal to them.
