The show “Grey’s Anatomy,” which airs on ABC every Thursday, is about a surgeon, Meredith Grey, who struggles to escape her famous mother’s shadow when she begins her career at Seattle Grace, the show’s main hospital. The show released their 300th episode on Thursday, Nov. 9.
In the beginning, the show portrayed the beginning years of Meredith Grey’s (Ellen Pompeo) surgical residency. I was confused in the beginning because it showed how Meredith was at a bar before her first day of work. In the first episode I thought it was going to show Meredith working at the hospital. I didn’t understand the significance of the bar scene until later within the first 15 minutes because Meredith and the guy she met become a thing.
Some of the episodes have a Part 1 and Part 2 so you don’t want to miss an episode. The last two minutes of Season 1 left me in tears because someone unexpected entered the hospital. It really pissed me off because there was a secret someone was keeping until the unexpected person showed up.
As the show progressed there were a lot of sad moments in the show. The show shouldn’t have gone this long because some of the episodes are repetitive.
The 300th episode stirred some emotions because there are some familiar characters from previous seasons compacted into one episode. During the episode a trauma came in where the patients reminded Meredith about her resident years. There was someone who looked like her best friend that came into the hospital. In the episode the very last minute when Meredith won the Harper Avery award for surgical innovation, when she looked up into the audience to see a familiar ghost.
Grey’s Anatomy should’ve ended a while ago because most of the episodes are a bit repetitive. Overall I liked the show because in the beginning there was some intense romance scenes, so if you’re into that you should check it out.
