Grey’s Anatomy proves to be what it lives up to

I have never been a fan of trends. I have never worn Uggs or Lululemon. I have never seen the point of being just like everyone else. Whether it’s clothes or the newest TV show, I keep my distance. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, something just grabs you and your self-control dwindles until, finally, you cave and buy the newest brand or watch the latest show. And more often than I’d like to admit, I end up really enjoying whatever it was I worked so hard to stay away from. That’s exactly what happened a week ago when I watched the first episode of Grey’s Anatomy.

Nothing about hospitals interests me. I’ve never had an issue with blood, but I’ve also never had a particular interest in it. Nevertheless, from the first few minutes of Grey’s Anatomy, I’ve been hooked. The fast-paced, hectic lives of surgeons at Seattle Grace hospital has enough drama to put even the Kardashian’s to shame. From their crazy love lives to their even crazier surgeries, the insane world of Grey’s Anatomy has you wanting more and more with every episode.

As insane and unlike mine their lives are, they can still be very relatable. You can relate to their grief and their pain; maybe it’s because you know someone has hurt you before, or maybe you relate because you’ve spend time in the hospital yourself. Their lives may be extreme, but the basis of each episode is full of things everyone has gone through.

Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) catches your eye and from minute one you’re enticed by her life. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers), Christina Yang (Sandra Oh), Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl), and George Oa��Malley (T.R Knight) each have such unique stories that keep you interested the entire time. From drama inside the hospital to drama in their personal lives, you’re definitely never bored. Each character is portrayed so well by the actors and actresses, who slowly show a hundred different sides of their characters throughout the episodes.

I think Grey’s Anatomy is a great show if you’re looking for the entire roller coaster of life, from the laughs to the cries. It’s a great mix of entertainment and good life lessons. So whether you are a big fan of trends or you hate them with a passion, Grey’s Anatomy is definitely worth checking out.
