Confession time, here’s what I got: I’ve never watched Grey’s Anatomy before. I’ve always wanted to, but I never got around to it until recently, probably as a result of COVID-19. My favorite podcast is Grey’s Anatomy inspired, but I’ve always been intimidated by just how many episodes there are, and more keep coming out.
The reason I finally started is because a friend of mine has talked about wanting to start, and so we did a Netflix Party together. While we were watching, I kept a “diary” of my watch experience if you will. I’m sharing it here today, mostly because I am not totally sure if I feel the need to continue. Beware: may contain spoilers. Here are a collection of my thoughts:
Pilot: A Hard Day’s Night
- Damn, I wish I was boss enough to invite a guy home and sleep on the floor…
- Of course he’s going to be her new boss…
- My school teaches their nurses well, because my friend understood all the medical talk.
- Rectum exams… yikes.
- Mr. Savage, what a name.
- Meredith really is strong.
- I don’t like Alex, but George seems like a sweetie.
- I like Richard.
Episode 2: The First Cut is Deepest
- Oh my god, that girl bit off a penis in self-defense!
- Isn’t it a little early in the series to have someone carry around a penis? “Custody of a penis.” What a thought.
- What Justice. That guy tried to rape a girl and now he can’t have sex again. And he’ll be peeing out of a bag for a long time.
- Alex is a pig.
- Oh goodness, no wonder people talk about elevator kisses.
- Oh babies!
- Izzy going in the rain for surgery makes me tear up.
Episode 3: Winning the Battle, Losing the War
- Meredith regrets inviting them to live with her, definitely.
- Alex the Frat Guy is most definitely an ass.
- Izzy is so kind.
- “You make out with patients now?”
- The chase definitely seems to be what Sheppard is drawn to.
- “Tiny ineffectual fists.”
- George really is a puppy.
- “The mountain is going to have to come to me.” What a phrase.
Episode 4: No Man’s Land
- I admire Christina’s determination.
- I hate how people are judging Izzy. Let a girl live.
- Ow to the nails in the skull.
- I wonder if Meredith’s friendship with Meredith is based on rivalry.
- Alex is an ass to the nth degree.
- Ouch, Ellis doesn’t even remember her own family, but she can remember someone she worked with. That must have felt like a slap in the face to Meredith.
- Ah, there’s Christina’s heart.
- Of course Meredith ends up caving to a date with Sheppard.
