Grey’s Anatomy currently has 15 seasons and it is still running. This has to mean something right?

It is one of my favorite series and let me tell you why I fell in love with Grey’s Anatomy after the first season.

Grey’s Anatomy S01

Meredith goes to a bar the night before she starts her new job. She meets a handsome guy and they hit it of. After kicking him out of her house in the morning, she discovers that he is one of her new bosses.

The new group of interns starts their internship this day and their resident is called ‘The Nazi’. The group becomes friends pretty fast and some of them even move in with Meredith.

Meredith and Derek Mcdreamy start dating and they have fun. However, something is not right in their relationship. Meredith also gets some weird looks because they think Derek gives her all the good cases.

George gets a girlfriend and this leads to big problems in the hospital. Izzie has problems with her work due to her former model work.

Christina shows how much she loves surgery and she does everything to get one. She also starts sleeping with the Chief.

Alex shows why nobody likes him and just proves that this is true. He bullies his coworkers, get into trouble and is just really annoying.

My recommendation

I have to confess. When I started this show for the first time it was in the middle of season 5. My mom was watching it and I joined her.

So after three episodes, I was watching season 1-4 and season 5 at the same time. I catched up at no time and really enjoyed it.

Grey’s Anatomy is not only drama, even though there is enough of that, but also action, disgusting views and educational!

I am not saying I can do a surgery now, but I do know quite some medical terms and ways. I actually quite like that.

My favorite part are the surgeries. I just love the disgusting views where they stand with someones bowel in their hand and stuff like that. This is not for everyone though.

If you like The Good Doctor, the Night Shift, and other hospital shows, you will like Grey’s Anatomy. The same the other way around.

I discovered the show 5 years ago and I have already seen the whole series 6 times now. (15 seasons, 20 episodes average, 40 minutes)

Get Season one-two or watch it on Amazon Prime Video. (Get a free 30-day trial!)
