I am not always sure why I'm still watching Grey's Anatomy. All I know is that I just can't quit it. Despite the allegations (for many seasons, I might add) that the show has jumped the shark, I cannot bring myself to delete it from my DVR.
The thing about Grey's Anatomy is this, you KNOW each season something absolutely unbelievable will happen. A shooting in the hospital, a plane crash involving the doctors, one of the doctors will get hit by a bus and die, the the rest of the doctors will try to save him never knowing who it is they are trying to save. All the while, the call rooms will be full of residents and interns getting frisky. I can't even keep track of who has slept with whom anymore. With Grey's you know what you're getting, and yet, Shonda Rhimes still has a story to tell, and she tells the hell out of it every Thursday night.
This season, the story between Callie and Arizona is especially interesting. Arizona ended up losing her leg after the plane crash which served as the cliffhanger for last season all by her wife, Callie's decision. The tension that has caused in that relationship is poetic. It's enough to watch just for that. But what about the moral dilemma that Kepner has in her sexual relationship with Avery. After she felt so ashamed and virtue-less losing her virginity to him, she just can't stay away from him.
And while all of this is going on with the other characters, Meredith Grey (played by Ellen Pompeo), the namesake of the show, is having her own personal revolution. She is no longer the neurotic whispy student she was in season 1. Without her husband and best friend to lean on constantly, she has grown into a full fledged, confident doctor with an edge.
I'm still loving this show more every season, I'll admit it. But one thing I know for sure, if I need medical care in Seattle, please don't bring me to Seattle Grace Hospital. Even if it is fictional.
