Grey’s Anatomy ending might be an imminent thing in the future but the show runners are probably unaware of it. The show has a had real long run time with 15 Seasons. Grey’s Anatomy has also been reported to have a net worth of $4 billion.
But, it has had its share of success and popularity. Truthfully, the show is offering nothing but dragged plot lines and repetition of stories.
What is Grey’s Anatomy about?
Grey’s Anatomy first premiered in 2005 and became a hit after that. In the beginning of the show, there were five interns. Alex Karev, Christina Yang, George O’Malley, Izzie Stevens and Meredith Grey.
But, after that there were constant changes made to the cast. Alex and Meredith were the only ones to stay at the end. But, the biggest change was when Sandra Oh left the show in Season 10. Grey’s Anatomy has never been the same again.
After Oh’s exit, another major character was killed off; Derek. After his death, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) became a quite self-centered character.
It just feels like the producers are not left with any stimulating content or dramatic endings. They tried to start a romantic angle in Meredith’s life, but it’s clearly not working.
Grey’s Anatomy is not just an entertainment piece. It has thrown light on many socially sensitive issues. For eg: LGBTQ movements, challenging myths regarding differently abled people, women in colour rising to power positions, etc.
And this is one of the reasons why Callie and Arizona’s relationship had such a huge fan base.
What is the problem with the show?
In the initial seasons, the plot of the show showed the personal lives of the characters which mostly overlapped with their professional lives. Hence, the storylines were continuous.
But, after Season 10, the plot doesn’t seem to lead us anywhere. The show is constantly removing new characters even before the audiences can get attached to them. The medical jargons have increased and there is no shock value left to the new drama.
Grey’s Anatomy has lost its charm in the last few seasons. And maybe like all good things, this should also come to an end.
