I'll never forget watching the premiere of Grey's Anatomy on March 27th, 2005. It had been years since I had fun a television show that I wanted to watch regularly, so I decided to give this one a try. I was never too into medical dramas and I had never even watched an episode of E.R.
From the very first episode I was hooked on the drama and tension between all the characters. All the backstabbing, lying and cheating made the show more realistic to someone around my age, compared to the teen dramas such as Dawson's Creek and Saved By The Bell that I have since outgrown.
Not only were the storylines very thoughout, but some of the medical scenes were like nothing I've ever seen before. I will always remember the scene in which two train passangers become implaled together by a pole during a giant crash. In order to save a life, the other had to die. That episode in particular was very emotional and I am not afraid to admit that tears were shed in my apartment.
Another standout episode came from [guest star] Christina Ricci's character. The girl had a bomb INSIDE of her that had to be removed before everyone in the hospital would be caught in the explosion. Talk about intense. That show was FULL of intensity. And the cliffhangers made you scream at your TV, making it unbearable for you to get through the week, without seeing the conclusion.
Sometime after Season 3 I lost interest in the show. Characters left, new characters were introduced and it seemed that the writers had lost their spark. How many love trinagle episodes can you do all over again before the audience has had enough, right? Currently in its fifth season, Grey's Anatomy continues to entertain a large audience, although nowhere near as big as it did in 2005-2006. I haven't seen any recent episodes, but I am curious to see if the plots became fresh and new again.
Can I blame it on allergies? Nope. No can do. I'm crying in my cubicle at lunch because I'm catching up on last night's episode of Grey's. I have been a fan of Grey's since the very beginning. I love the drama. I love the triangles and constantly changing relationships. Some may view it as over the top but I find it particularly interesting and relevant. Maybe it's because I enjoy surrounding myself with many personalities and this show gives me yet another view. I love Grey's … more
