Good for ages 12+

Let your kids live! If they are mature, know what s*x is, and know swear words they are fine! My 12 and 9 year old watch it with me all the time. Parental guidance suggested.

Political Garbage

Man did I love this show when it first came out. Season 16.... talk about political bs!! Everything on ABC now is all about bashing the white person, police officer hate and straight people being the bad guys.... We have enough hate in this world... our TV shows don't need to spread it more.

Depends on maturity

this show really depends on your maturity leval I think 13+ is a great age the show has quite a bit of sex scenes it’s nothing to bad though. There’s a lot of graphic images because of surgery scencs and people come in the hospital with a stab wound, etc. so I would say if you can’t handle blood DO NOT watch this show. It overall is a amazing show!

Ages like a fine wine.

Such a good show. All the medical information is accurate so it’s educational too. They cut out any real sex scenes. You only see the before and after. Swearing is minimal and not much reference to drugs. Violence is also less frequent. However, lots of talk regarding drinking, which is normalised among the doctors. I’d recommend watching with kids under 14 so you can explain some of more difficult topics that are bought up. It’s the death, illness and goriness that makes it inappropriate for younger kids, rather than sex, drugs and violence. Kids under 12/13 may also find the show boring, as it’s clearly made for an older audience.

'Masterpiece'

AMAZING show, so well written, extremely clever, I've learnt so much from watching the medical side of it. Teaches life skills, communication etc. Love ALL the characters. Has a bit of every in it romance, medical drama, sadness, ....so much more....I went back to series 1, have binge watched EVERY episode every night haha! just can't stop watching it. I'm now up to series 17 episode 5, just don't want it to end. AAA**** JUST FANTASTIC!!!!!!! thankyou for the creation of this show!!!!

Great for adults and mature teens

This show is really phenomenal, it teaches life lessons and can be rather tear jerking. This show is not an issue if your teen can tolerate gore and occasionally talk about sex, and a few sex scenes. I do think it is targeted towards an older audience though, so keep that in mind.

too sad, too many emotional themes for under 14s

i’m 18 and this show makes me emotional sometimes that’s why i’d say it’s not for under 14s but it makes it really immersive, also the show has the best type of representation there’s so many types of relationships but they don’t make them any different to the straight relationships they go through the same problems, really reflective of real life

I like to watch Grey Anatomy, BUT i feel you need to bring back quite a few of the old characters: April, Alex & others. The ones on there now, does not feel like they belong :) :) :) :)

How to Make a Night Time Sitcom all about Sex

While the sexual encounters are implied or have minimal exposure, the storyline in every show is the underlying issue of who is screwing who and why or why not. This makes hospitals and medicine seem to be less about patient care and more about sexual catharsis for the doctors. The medical issues seem well written but are often similar from episode to episode. Yet, I have a bigger issue: why does the show continue to lose or get rid of the most interesting characters. It is often noted that characters like Callie, Arizona, April, Riggs.....and upcoming such as Jackson, DeLuca, and Karev are leaving of their own accord or, primarily, for creative directions for the show. I hate to make this comparison, but how did Gunsmoke last for 20 years with the main characters intact. Or, Law and Order....any of the various series which managed to keep their main actors most of the time. Script writing is about the growth of a character.....Meredith has grown very little in 17 seasons. But, that is the fault of the writers. Losing beloved characters is about the writers. The show, sex and all, is getting stale. If one compares Grey's Anatomy with other medical shows over the years, it will prove to be, I think, tiresome due to the predictable nature of the undertone of relationships in every episode. Chicago Hope had its issues with actor turnover, but it still is a much higher quality medical show with excellent writing and character development. Saving Hope, a Canadian drama, has a unique twist which could make it laborious, yet the writers maintained the tension. M.A.S.H speaks for itself. Dr. Kildare, Ben Casey, St. Elsewhere, House,, and E.R. are just a handful of medical shows that do not absorb their audiences with sex and blood, alcohol and insentient patients who we seldom get to know much about.
