''Grey's Anatomy'' is a MedicalDrama. Beginning its life in 2005 as a MidSeasonReplacement, Grey's quickly became known for being sort of, well, quirky, especially given its genre: in addition to [[NameMcadjective McNicknaming]] and using the world "seriously" as much as we use the word "{{egregious}}", the show focused primarily on the romantic and sex lives of its characters rather than on the medical cases. Case in point: the first scene of the pilot episode is {{Narrator}} Meredith Grey waking up after a one-night-stand with a hot guy named Derek and rushing off to her first day as an intern at Seattle Grace Hospital... only to discover that said one-night-stand, Dr. Shepherd, [[OhCrap works there too.]]
