So I found myself in Seattle Grace Hospital today. For those who aren't in the know, this hospital is the setting of my favorite TV show Grey's Anatomy.
I was invited to give a talk at a VA hospital in the valley ("the valley" is an area about 30 minutes north of LA), and when I arrived I immediately noticed a motorized golf cart labeled with "Grey's Anatomy" driving around the lot. Once I was inside the hospital, there was one section of the top floor filled with camera crews, lighting, screens, and other filming gear. After looking around a bit, I saw that well-known breezeway seen in almost every episode, the concrete pathway leading up to the hospital, and a lot of SGH signs on windows and floormats! I love getting behind-the-scenes and seeing film sets, so I was pretty excited.
(Hm, considering how much I hate this show, I sure talk about it a lot.)
