Of Grey’s Anatomy and Seattle Grace

I’m not big into change. In Oncology, when a normal cell changes into something malignant, it’s called cellular transformation. The damn cells turn toxic right in front of your eyes. So as far as I’m concerned, transformation sucks.

Change is a funny thing, not everyone can handle it. It can sneak up on you. Things aren’t what they use to be. The whole world is transformed. You realize the ground beneath you has shifted. Things are uncertain and there’s no turning back. The world around you is different now. Unrecognizable, and there is nothing you can do about it. You’re stuck and the future is starring you in the face and you’re not sure you like what you see. Like I said, I’m not big into change.

-Episode 4 of Season 9,“The Face of Change”.

Greys Anatomy

 Who thought that a subject like Oncology could spark a whole new world of inspirations? Personally, I am totally NOT into science. The inclination is more towards arts and literature. But that does not stop me from being glued to Grey’s Anatomy. After all, where else would I get to see the perfect concoction of the logical with the emotional, of the sublime with the tragedy, and of science with empathy!

 Now that Grey’s Anatomy is back in news, I have the perfect reason to put my love for it on display. Everyone loves Raymond and I do too, only that my inclination towards the medical drama is a tad more than other soaps cashing in on bouts of British and American wit. It’s effortless to draw a connection with the every character of the medical chronicle, whether it is Cristina, Alex, Meredith or the (oh sooooo) handsome Derek (just can’t take my eyes off him).

For the writer of this flawless show it might be an interesting ride to create motley of episodes based upon lives of young singles struggling to prove themselves in the medical field. Most of them are into surgery so they seem to know much about life and the loss of it. Most of them are docile. But the best part is that all of have them are an epic group together. They are learning some surgery and a LOT of lessons of empathy, life and relationships. While it is a medical drama, (thankfully) there is nothing over dramatic about it. It talks about staid subjects with intricate intensity minus the glum.

Let me admit; I may not have watched every episode of the Grey’s Anatomy from its beginning through the end. Nonetheless, I have gone sleepless on missing out its beginnings and “The Ends”. Till I have let Meredith talk me through the muses, I haven’t felt that all is right. There couldn’t be any better way that it could have been made (if only Shonda could stop killing our favorite characters)
