Grey’s Anatomy Season 1 Catch Up

Posted on 07 March 2010

In Grey’s Anatomy Season 1 we meet Meredith Grey, a woman trying to lead a real life while doing a job that makes having a real life impossible.

Meredith Grey is a first year surgical intern from the Seattle Grace Hospital, which is the toughest surgical residency program west of Harvard. She is joinged by fellow first-year interns Cristina Yang, Alex Karev, Izzie Stevens and George O’Malley who were students just yesterday. Today they’re doctors are all juggling the ups and downs of their own personal lives.

The five interns in Grey’s Anatomy struggle to form friendships in this most stressful and competitive atmosphere at the hospital. Meredith Grey’s medical ambition is overshadowed by a troubling secret which is that her mother, a noted pioneering surgeon, is struggling with a tragic and devastating illness.

Cristina  Yang is a study in contradiction; Yang is highly competitive and driven and wants to make it ‘on her own’. Isobel “Izzie” Stevens on the other hand is the small-town girl who grew up in a poor background, but in spite of paying for her medical career by modeling she’s still struggles with her self-esteem.

George O’Malley is the warm but insecure boy next door who always manages to do or say the wrong thing at the wrong time at the hospital and in his personal life. In spite of his attraction to women, he’s treated as “just one of the girls” by the other interns. Finally we have Alex Karev, the intern the other interns love to hate, who masks his working class roots with arrogance and ambition.

The interns are guided by an established team of doctors who are determined to shape them into skilled surgeons or break them.  Dr Miranda Bailey is a senior resident responsible for training them and is so tough that she’s nicknamed “The Nazi”  by the other doctors. Derek Shepherd is flirtatious but  an extremely capable surgeon who shares a forbidden but undeniable sexual attraction with Meredith Grey.  DrPreston Burke’s arrogance is second only to his skill with a scalpel. Dr. Richard Webber oversees them all, Seattle Grace’s paternal, but no-nonsense chief of surgery.

As chief of surgery, Dr Richard Webber is top dog. After working in New York for several years pioneering cutting edge surgery he’s back at Grace Hospital, the place where he himself was an intern over three decades ago.

He’s passionate, caring and expects the highest standard of commitment from his interns – not least from Meredith Grey, whose mother he trained alongside. Richard Webber sets the bar high and expects people to jump. He’s also aware that to have a well functioning and dedicated team, you need to introduce a bit of healthy rivalry

Preston Burke has always wanted to be chief resident and until the arrival of Sheppard, always presumed he would be. But after a firm warning from chief surgeon Richard Webber that he needs to step up a gear in order to be any match for Sheppard, he is forced to reassess his work ethic and go that extra mile.

Preston Burke takes the challenge to heart and will do whatever it takes to impress his boss. Here marks the start of a rivalry with Sheppard that he’s determined to win.

Miranda Bailey

Miranda Bailey – played by Chandra Wilson

Posted on 07 March 2010

As resident surgeon, Miranda Bailey’s job is to make life hell for the interns, a duty she carries out to perfection. “You are bottom of the surgical food chain and better get used to it,” she tells them on their first day.

Sharp tongued and quick witted, Miranda Bailey takes no messing and no excuses for poor performance. She’s dedicated to her work and although she’s a firm believer in respecting authority, she’s not afraid to speak her mind when she believes her seniors have made a mistake.

Meredith Grey

Posted on 07 March 2010

Surgical intern Meredith Grey is passionate, talented and destined for the top. As the daughter of Ellis Grey – one of Seattle’s most respected surgeons – she has great expectation to live up to.

But her focus and dedication is tested when her mother is stricken with Alzheimer’s, a burden that she struggles to keep separate from her work. And when she “accidentally” falls into bed with Sheppard, a senior surgeon, she worries that she’s crossed a dangerous line.

With a tendency towards the melodramatic, Meredith Grey is also a little too forthcoming with advice for patients when it’s unwarranted.

Isobel 'Izzy' Stevens

Isobel ‘Izzy’ Stevens – played by Katherine Heigl

Posted on 07 March 2010

Intern Izzy Stevens will go out of her way to accommodate a patient’s needs, even if it means risking her own career. She works hard and is determined to prove herself and her capabilities. But when a series of photos of her in sexy underwear – taken to fund her through college – are printed in a magazine for all her colleagues and patients to see, she fears she will be judged for all the wrong reasons.

Willowy and beautiful, Izzy Stevens has a debilitating effect on men and is used to having to overcompensate.

But a lack of self-confidence begins to emerge, something she will need to control if she’s going to make it to surgical resident.
