I've written several essays on why I watch Grey's Anatomy and House of Cards, but one in particular caught my attention recently.
Season 18 premiered on Sky On Demand - it's still not on Netflix! Nevertheless, I'll explain why I watch this medical drama. Unlike most medical dramas, Grey's has many aspects to be appreciated. For one, it is filled with intensity. Another reason is that characters have complicated personal lives, just like real people.
Season 18 of Grey's Anatomy premiered on Sky On Demand
The eighth season of the popular medical drama has begun streaming on Sky On Demand, which is available to people in the UK. The series, created by Shonda Rhimes, stars Ellen Pompeo as Dr. Meredith Grey. It has become one of ABC's highest-rated dramas and has found success overseas. Its popularity has increased significantly since season 16 due to the pandemic in the USA.
The first episode of Season 18 follows the events of Season 17.
After a season of cliffhangers, the show picks up from where the previous season left off. This season will also answer many of the questions left by season 17. Several cast members have confirmed they will return, including Megan Hunt and Addison Montgomery. Also confirmed on Instagram is the return of Abigail Spencer as a patient.
It's not on Netflix yet
If you want to watch Grey's Anatomy but don't know if it's on Netflix yet, you're not alone. The popular medical drama has recently overtaken ER in viewership and its future is up in the air. Season seventeen has yet to be released on Netflix, but all previous seasons are available for streaming. Season 18 will likely be released sometime in the next few months.
In the U.S., Grey's Anatomy has been renewed through the end of season 18, so if Netflix were to add another season, we'd see it sometime in March. While we don't know when it will hit Netflix, the show won't be available on Hulu until the end of season 18. The next season of Grey's Anatomy is expected to hit Netflix in June 2023.
It's a medical drama
Greys Anatomy follows the lives of young doctors in Seattle. The Grace Mercy West Hospital is home to a group of young doctors, including Meredith Grey, daughter of a famous surgeon. Meredith finds it difficult to balance her personal life with her work and maintain relationships with her coworkers. Meredith and Richard Webber are formerly romantically linked. Meredith and Richard had a personal relationship when Meredith was a young woman.
The show's storylines have often been controversial, including the effects of gender reassignment surgery and the reverberating effects of racism. Last season, the writers tackled the #MeToo movement head-on. One of the storylines featured an eminent surgeon, Harper Avery (Chelcie Ross).
It's filled with intensity
The second season of "Grey's Anatomy" is filled with intensity, and it's no surprise that fans have a hard time putting the show down. In the season finale, called "Losing My Religion," the show featured a devastating death, an illicit love affair, and even a prom that took place after hours in the hospital. It was a stunning and climactic conclusion to a series that began slowly but surely became an instant hit.
The season finale of "Grey's Anatomy" always brings a huge surprise. The series creator Shonda Rhimes has a knack for writing emotionally intense dramatic episodes, and the Season 6 finale, "Sanctuary," is no different. "Sanctuary" starts with Meredith finding out she's pregnant. "Death and All His Friends" ends with an intense, violent moment for the whole cast.
It's filled with sex
One of the main complaints of fans of Grey's Anatomy is the lack of sex scenes. While the series does feature plenty of sex in general, viewers would probably prefer more kissing and intimacy in the show. This is probably due to the fact that it has a largely ensemble cast and ships. Despite this, fans of the show have found ways to include sex in the show. Some of these solutions include using visual effects. Instead of kissing and penetrating each other, viewers would be able to see the characters lift and pull each other's clothing. Another solution could be to show the characters standing behind each other in a sexy manner.
However, medical soap operas often involve a lot of sex and violence. However, Grey's Anatomy generally adopts a progressive approach to sex and has always been apropos of human relationships and intimacy. Even so, it does occasionally deal with sex in inappropriate ways. For this reason, it's important to know the risks before you watch Grey's Anatomy.
