Grey's Anatomy


Grey's Anatomy


How many television shows can claim the honor of creating a new term in the English language? "Grey's Anatomy" qualified for the Oxford English Dictionary with its phrase "McDreamy," the residents' term for the hot young surgeon with whom they worked and studied. And original coinage is just the tip of the program's linguistic iceberg as it has remained arguably the best written show on television for more than five seasons. Both narrative and dialogue dazzle in every episode; accompanied by the right music, the closing sequences guarantee a good cry. Enrolled in the nation's toughest and most competitive residency, five young women doctors struggle to survive forty-eight hour shifts and the rigors of a program supervised by five famous doctors who are determined to shape them up or break them down. The women focus on, often obsesses with their careers, and romance, in the words of one viewer, "like take-out pizza, is consumed on the run." Just before the show's 2005 debut, Alessandra Stanley described it as "a Girl Power version of "˜ER'," still the best one-phrase summary ever. All those young girls, and only one McDreamy.
