Storyline

Meet Meredith Grey: daughter of famous surgeon Ellis Grey and first-year intern at Seattle Grace Hospital. On her first day, she meets her fellow interns: Cristina Yang, a highly competitive Stanford graduate; George O'Malley, a quirky, warmhearted guy; and Izzie Stevens, a former model who's always optimistic. Overseeing them is Miranda Bailey, dubbed "The Nazi" by her coworkers. Meredith also gets a surprise when she realizes that her one-night stand from the night before is her new boss. Written by Alex

A perfect start
9 May 2020 | by IngridNO-67997See all my reviews

I think this pilot is perfect.You get a sense of what every character is like, and you want to know them more. I remember when I saw this for the first time years ago, I really wanted to be them, especially Meredith. Their lives looks so interesting. Also, the music in this episode is fantastic. When they use these song later on in the show, I get chills. Ellen Pompeo is so good at acting without saying or doing much, just her energy.
