Who? Meredith Grey.
Her playground? Grey's Anatomy.
Something about Meredith is just so flaky. I don’t know whether it’s the raspy possum-like voice used to narrate her way around the pitfalls of sleeping with her colleagues… Or, the mousy I-wish-I-was-the-girl-next-door looks.
Let’s be fair. It’s just the first season.
Hot or Not: [6 out of 10] – You kinda think she would look hot. And then she kinda does, but kinda doesn’t. I just don’t know with this one. It’s hot, but condescending I-went-to-a-better-private-school-than you hot.
Apparent Medical Skill: [5 out of 10] - Maybe as a psychiatrist she’d get a higher score. Although definite minus points for having a cry while shagging the shy doctor (George). Was expecting a better performance out of dear Meredith. With that name, and those “mature” looks – she must have bummed around as a Chicken Licken sales lady before becoming an Intern. Just not fresh-faced and innocent enough.
Bedside Manner: [5 out of 10] - That flaky voice just doesn’t inspire much confidence.
Ability to survive in Baragwanath: [1 out of 10] – She’d cry on the first day, sleep with all her mates and then get vomited on by that drunk guy. This would obviously ruin those designer pyjamas. Tickets.
What would I say if I woke up in her ward? Does this come in a nurse outfit?
Doctor Showdown SCORE
[4.25 out of 10]
But then you didn’t really have to be a good doctor to make it onto TV, did you?
