Grey's Anatomy Analysis

Better Essays
If you want to watch a show that will emotionally scar you and rip away your happiness, Grey’s Anatomy is the perfect option. You’re constantly at the tip of your toes wondering what will happen next. Not only, will it cause you to wonder what you’re doing with your life at possibly three in the morning, but it’ll leave you lying awake questioning every circumstance you have personally faced in life. It seems like an exaggeration, but it is one of the best shows ever produced on television. Shonda Rhimes truly captures what it is to be a successful television series. What makes Grey’s Anatomy so profound is its ability to relate to almost everyone, it’s mainstream on almost every level, and most importantly its content always has a wide variety …show more content…
The basis of all shows only grows better and better. It’s always reflecting the traumas and dramas that can captivate any audience. Most importantly, the show is modernized and keeps up with the conflicts of everyday society, while simultaneously creating its own sense of television. The directors are not afraid to depict the social issues going on in the world. In many circumstances it will cover more than one issue at a time. For example, in season 6, episode 15, known as the “Time Warp”, Chief Webber talked about how the White doctors conceived themselves to be of a higher status to help treat a homosexual man with aids, so he, being an African American man, was the only one of a lesser title that could treat the patient. This episode painted an authentic picture of how a community's reaction to someone who’s sexuality and race was different from the “norm”, could possibly lead to malpractice and neglect to an oath . Another show that shocked many viewers was season 14 episode 1 when Dr. Avery spoke openly to a police officer on police brutality. Wide eyes and goosebumps filled millions when he said, "Bias is human. You're using guns, and your bias is lethal. Adjust your protocol. Fix it. Kids are dying. This kid is dead — for what?!" He was speaking on behalf of the African American boy who had just been fatally shot when officers falsely accused the twelve year old of breaking and entering. Purposefully, episode writer Zoanne Clack named the character Eric, after the tragic death of Eric Garner on July 17, 2014. Director Rhimes even brought about the same ideas found in Sesame Street, when she introduced head cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Dixon, as a successful women who lives with Asperger's syndrome. From past to present episodes, Grey’s Anatomy’s stance on affairs is always prevalent throughout their episodes, and it portrays just how well the writers and directors have adapted to combining

    I portrayed the author as a kid who loves to destroy his Lego only to build it again because, on Grey’s anatomy, Rhymes always kill the main characters and bring new people to construct the show; we all remember season eight, where the plane that all hospital’s surgeons were in had crashed and Arizona lost her leg while Meredith sister died; it really shook the show and made it more suspense. In another event, Shonda rhymes killed Derek Shepard in-car accident on season eleven, episode twenty-three, it was very controversial. Personally, I felt like the show is close to ending, even according to ABC, many fans commented that they think the author is probably wrapping it up. However, surprisingly the show continued focusing on another issue; Dr. Arizona and Dr. Callie Torres marriage and the widow Dr. Grey’s loneliness. As can be seen, Shonda Rhymes doesn’t tell only the love fairy tells and the hospital environment, she also touches the women’s struggles in a real world; the loneliness, the rejections, and the same-sex marriages’ battle to get acceptance and stick to one another like Arizona and Callie.…

    The biggest issue I had with discrimination in the study of the black men with syphilis was that white people that had the disease was able to receive penicillin, but the black males were not able to get treated. The doctors showed prejudice on the group but discriminated against them because they thought the black males were not going to react in the same way that the white males did, therefore the doctors denied the black men treatment. In my understanding I believe that discrimination was Brandt’s main focus on the fact that none of the men that were being tested were being discriminated against and the doctor’s built prejudice based on how those black men or test subjects would react to the way they were treated. I gained a better since of discrimination because of the relation that Brandt describes between discrimination and prejudice. You can never test a way an individual has prejudice, but you can test a group or person’s discrimination towards another…
