While it fits the bill for a soap opera, Grey's Anatomy is no generic, run-of-the-mill fluff series. It's a show that artfully distills medical knowledge and emotional exchanges into highly satisfying 42-minute episodes. Its heroine is a flawed but lovable surgeon who time after time endures horrendous disasters and plain bad luck. On top of skillful writing and directing, the show creates important social conversations without being preachy or sacrificing characterization. Oh, and did we mention the awesome music selection that ranges from synth-pop bangers to morose covers of '80s rock?
