Complex Introduction to Medical Interns & their Bosses
Meredith Grey's a woman medical intern amongst a host of others. However her mother was a top surgeon who is now living in a nursing home with Alzheimers--a mother who can recall her scrub nurse but not her husband or daughter. Meredith began dating a man before she met him in the Seattle Grace Hospital as a key brain and spinal surgeon who is a candidate for Chief of surgery. Episode after episode one of the leading tensions in the series is between Grey and this boss she dated before knowing his position at the hospital.
It's obvious she's crazy for him but she's very aware of the serious complications of dating one of her surgical team bosses.
The other tension is between the teaching head intern and the new crew. She's going to test them in every way imaginable and make their lives hardly their own any more.
The main competition between the surgical interns is to be asked by one of the surgeons to scrub for surgery to assist them. So once the head intern catches Grey and her surgical boss in a car having sex, she watches how he seems to favor her for surgeries then lashes out with threats at both of them, even though the surgeon is her boss too!
Meredith offers what used to be her mother's home to several of the other surgical interns. Shortly after they too learn she's having a sexual relationship with one of their bosses. It makes for another degree of tension between roomate interns.
One posed for an underwear centerfold to pay for medical school and the men interns soon find the photos. Here comes another tension between them.
Another man intern gets syphilis and everyone finds out. They taunt him mercilessly.
Everyone has got secrets but perhaps the best kept one is between intern Christine and the other candidate for Chief of surgery. They've been having a secret sexual relationship and now Christine is pregnant and planning to keep it secret by having an abortion.
At the conclusion of season one, Meredith is confronted, as if a slut, in the lobby of the hospital as she and her lover boss are about to leave together, by a woman who calls herself his wife. That's the last scene of the season.
I don't like bloody gory hospital flix like "Nip and Yuck," at all! I watched ER exactly once and disliked it for being too sappy and soapy with very boring characters.
Grey's Anatomy has quite exciting medical cases, great tensions between the characters, lots of on point intellectual script, and very good acting. I'm definitely getting the DVD of season 2.Read full review

If you liked ER in the early days you will love this!
I believe this is the best new show of 2005. If you are interested in medical based shows this is for you. I grew up watching Patrick Dempsey in all his movies and it is so nice to see him make a comeback in a big as life way.

I'm a huge fan of medical dramas and originally I really didn't see how this show could differ itself from any other average medical show. I got hooked in the first five minutes and I've been watching ever since. Now that ER is sort of past its prime Grey's Anatomy can easy claim the title as the best medical drama on television.
What really differs the show from any other medical show I've seen is the character development. The character development helped keep me interested and I felt I got to know Meredith and the other interns. I also got a feel for the hardships being an intern is and how much work goes into becoming a doctor. You also get a feeling of connection with the interns because of how much we find out about them. Dr. Shepherd, Dr. Bailey, and Dr. Burke help them along the way and offer some good advice. It's very informative and I've learned a few things watching it.
Overall I think Grey's Anatomy is one of the best and most addictive shows on TV right now. This DVD is a great way to see it from the beginning and it's priced right and I highly recommend it.Read full review
