America—Reflected from US TV Series

Grey's Anatomy

Grey's Anatomy

It is a pity that I have not been to the United States of America so far. Because when I was the age that I can remember things, I have been told that America is a powerful country, and it would take P. R. China one century to catch up with America. Even now, with the fast development of China and peoples’ hardworking, it still needs 50 or more years to be today’s America.

Thanks to the internet, the world becomes a village. It is easy for us from the other side of the world to take a close look at and contact America immediately. I am a big fan of American TV series, such as Friends, Grey's Anatomy, The Vampire Diaries, Big Bang, and so on.

You know what? It just took me one summer holiday to finish seven seasons of Grey's Anatomy. Maybe I should say “Yes, I can!”. I like the doctors of the series, they express their feelings directly, argue with their boss for the truth; they are knowledgeable, responsible, and humanistic. They are, I think, the representatives of American labor and I show great respect for these kind of people.

On the other hand, as you can see from the series, the actors are of different colored skin, which means that the United States is a cultural power. Its short but rich history and uniqueness makes it become a melting pot, and brings together the world’s culture.

Many people living in the states, no matter whether they are native American or immigrants from overseas, have the same dream of changing their social class and making their lifetime dream come true through their own efforts. This is what they often call the "American Dream."
