Shows to add to your Netflix queue

Most people who have a Netflix subscription probably have Grey’s Anatomy on their watched, queued, or currently watching lists. Grey’s is a television show on ABC about five surgical interns who are doing their residency at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital. Their names are Meredith Grey, Christina Yang, Alex Karev, George O’Malley, and Isobel “Izzie” Stevens.
From a professional binge-watcher’s opinion, Christina Yang is, by far, the best intern on the show. Christina’s fierce and doesn’t care what people think about her.
Yang and Grey are actual friendship goals. They have sleepovers that can last for over a week, either personal or work-related, and they tell each other every little detail that happened in their day.
Meredith’s love interest for pretty much the whole show is Dr. Derek Shepherd, also known as “McDreamy” (the name comes from Christina). Shepherd is that guy Meredith can’t get over. Even when they’re apart, she still thinks about him ALL THE TIME. Meredith’s mom, the ever-so-famous surgeon, Ellis Grey, is battling Alzheimer’s throughout the show and it makes Meredith work a little more by balancing her family and surgical residency life.
Christina’s the valedictorian of her high school class and her med-school class at Stanford University. She has a problem with finding who she will love, but she tries to have fun with it at the same time. Her love life is constantly evolving. She fell for the famous cardiothoracic surgeon, Preston Burke. Burke and Yang’s relationship is the same as a Victorian romance novel, dramatic and steamy. Yang and Grey will forever be best friends. They say they’re friends because they test each other, and they are literal friendship goals.
Stevens, Karev, and O’Malley are kind of the outliers of the group. Stevens is the perfectionist who is coined the nickname “Dr. Model” on the first episode. Karev is the sexist dude who thinks that the nurses and female doctors are only at the hospital to serve him, but he gets better throughout the show. O’Malley is the type of guy to be a mama’s boy, he’s the peacemaker of the group, always trying to stop fights and try to be a great surgeon in the midst of it.
Grey’s is the show that is unavoidable, sometime or another, it will be on most people’s Netflix inventory. It’s such a powerful show that some people actually pursue medical careers because of how awesome it is, and others just sit there and watch it for the fun of it. But overall, this show is the best show on Netflix, no arguments.
