The show's clever, the dialogue smart, the characters engaging and the the occasional veering into the absurd and outrageous provides a refreshing break from TV fare that is generally tepid at best these days.

Yes, the characters may not all be nice and some may be nasty throughout the show, such as Tara Reid's cameo as J.D.'s slutty girlfriend. But they're always interesting, and the show's constantly funny. The love-hate relationship between Dr. Cox and Jordan is a pleasure to watch and keeping the J.D.-Elliot love/relationship off-kilter is a smart move on the writers' part.

At a time when American TV audiences seem enraptured by garbage, such as "Survivor," "The Bachelor" and "Who Wants to Marry a Gold-Digging Slut/Hunk on a Deserted Island While Answering Questions With 19,000 Chances to Telephone Relatives and Friends for the Answers," NBC's "Scrubs" provides a breath of fresh air.

It is the best sitcom on TV today and I only hope that NBC does right by this show and promotes it as much as it did the over-hyped "Friends." Because "Scrubs" deserves all the promotion so that it can stick around for a long time.

Addendum: The current season of "Scrubs" - where NBC runs two new episodes every Tuesday - is particularly good.

This show gets absolutely no respect from its network and the show's creators, I think, believe this might very well be the last season. So they're pulling out all the stops and the lunacy is inspired, inventive and unquestionably funny.

The remarkable thing about this show is that is so deftly balances wacky, wild humor - the non sequitur fantasy sequences are hilarious - with surprisingly moving and quiet moments.

Zach Braff, Sarah Chalke, Donald Faison and Judy Reyes have a wonderful sense of comic timing. And even though the series revolves around Braff's character, J.D., the show, I believe, belongs to John C. McGinley as Dr. Cox.

His riffs are howlers and, yet, McGinley always finds the humanity in his character and the situations. And Dr. Cox's relationship with his wife, Jordan (Christa Miller, who is superb), is one of the series' highlights.

I only wish the DVDs of the series would come out much sooner. "Scrubs" is one of the best sitcoms ever on TV and its 2006 season provides ample proof of that.

I always thought that Scrubs is a great TV show, not only for the great acting and the funny scripts, but also for showing what working in a hospital is really like. Every doctor will say that "life is not like ER", and scrubs didn't take the whole heroic position and the action-drama scenes, that frankly, is much less common in hospitals than an old man with diarrhea, reflux, colitis or other not so very "photographic" diseases.

the first season was great, and the second season opening was AMAZING, but i felt that during the second season the show became a little "routinic". Season 3, not only bringing new excitement to the show, included some unforgettable moments. Chapter 14, "My Screw Up", is one of the finest moments in TV in the last couple of years. Chapter 16, dealing with "what ifs" was also terrificly done.

Taking you from a wild laughter, through a smile, a breath taking moment, empathy, sadness, and even tears (in that specific episode mentioned), Scrubs is one of the best shows running nowadays...

'Scrubs' is a look at the world through the eyes of an intern. Not some crusty cop or a desperate housewife, but an intern.

An intern with no special abilities or powers. An intern who goes to a hospital.

And somehow, this creates one of the best shows on TV.

J.D.(Zach Braff) is an intern at Sacred Hearts Hospital. He's surrounded by a cynical janitor, a belligerent head M.D., a sarcastic mentor, and a few other interns. Though this all may seem like a familiar and done-before formula, 'Scrubs' makes the whole thing seem fresh, new, and radiant.

The show subtlety examines many major issues (authority complex, race, etc.) without making it seem preachy. To do this well is itself a fantastic achievement.

This show also does something incredible: make actors you may recognize from small parts in movies shine. Zach Braff, John C. McGinley, and so many others.

Worth your time in spades.

I thank Bill Lawrence with all my heart and soul for creating "Scrubs." Never before have I become so invested in characters that I actually cry when something happens to them. Well, not since Buffy, at least...

Anyway, Scrubs is a unique blend of in-your-face, slapstick, outrageous humour and tear-jerking, brilliantly acted drama. In the space of 5 seconds, the show can go from laughing your a** off to getting goosebumps from how moving it is.

Take for instance episode 12 of the 3rd season, "My Screwup." Don't worry, no spoilers, but in my opinion, this is the best episode of Scrubs (next to "My Lunch") just because of how absolutely hilarious it is for the majority, but at the end, all of a sudden, with one of the best cuts of all time, you, or at least I, suddenly find tears welling up in my eyes as realisation kicks in.

I recommend this show to everyone, and am constantly outraged how this show never wins an Emmy, they should have picked one up for every brilliant season this show brings out. It is without a doubt, the very best television show there has ever been. Here endeth the rant.

I can't give this program a rating that truly portrays its greatness.

Set in Sacred Heart hospital it follows the fledgling careers of a group of interns. A brief intro of the characters

JD - Geeky Dr and our hero. Elliot - Sexy but neurotic. Dr Turk - Cocky, confident surgeon. Todd - Sex obsessed frat boy surgeon. Carla - Ghetto know it all bossy nurse. Dr Cox - JD's Mentor with a slight hint of sacrcasm in his nature. Dr Kelso - Satans mentor. Janitor - Stalker

I have never laughed so much at a TV Comedy, and with so many humorous characters, ranging from mean Dr Kelso, sarcasm king Dr Cox and the just plain psychotic Janitor. If you haven't seen it, I implore you, Beg steal or borrow an episode or two, and if you aren't hooked then I guess you've already had your funny bone removed.

It's nice to see a show on these days that can actually make me laugh and doesn't use a truck load of toilet humour. The flashes to an inner world in Newbies mind are always fascinating and sometimes funny. Dr Cox is SO funny as is the Janitor. But what really strengthened my love for this show was the episode 'My Philosophy'. It was the first time in ages a TV show made me cry. I LOVE that ending. Great acting, humorous and a lesson learned at the end of each episode is icing on the cake. This is definately not your average show.

Just the best series ever, watched it multiple times and I still love it

jakebd 12 December 2004

Let me start off by saying that I adore this show. Really, I'm absolutely enthralled by it. Here's the thing, it's not really a sitcom. If you're a fan of straight zannyness and a brand new plot with each episode, this isn't really the show for you.

Sitcom, or situation comedy, is comedy of the moment. It is to say that nothing that has happened previously in the series is the reason for what's happening now. Scrubs, on the other hand, involves a rather strong continuing plot line and character arcs that encompass a season. The characters change and grow over time.

For me, since, as I said, I am devoted to the show, this is fantastic. I watch it every week and I get a bit more of the story to file away in my head thing. However, if you're just tuning in for the first time, you might not like the show quite so much. All I can say is, give it time. Let it grow on you a bit before you cast judgment. Because really, the show is good. But tuning in for one episode won't really tell you that.

OK, reading the Summary, you may think that this comment will be negative towards Scrubs. Well, sorry to disappoint, but its not. I love Scrubs. From J.D.'s neuroses, to Elliots insecurities, all the way to Jordan's ice woman exterior and Ted's suicidal tendencies. Scrubs has made television worth watching since 2001.

So, the show itself is not a disappointment. Its when you enter the real world. You see, I myself am a First Year Resident. And my god, life is dull. Sily of me, i know, but i went in, hoping everything will be exactly like Scrubs shows me its gonna be. i expected a Dr. Cox like person, always angry at something but a damn good doctor. i expected Dr Kelso, more worried about money than his patients. i expected a Nurse Espinosa, a caring, feisty mother figure. And i got none of these. NONE. of course, a lot of the show is realistic enough. the different situations that they face are situations that i deal with almost every day. as n example, its fine. But, you cant help feeling, after watching all 4 series of scrubs, that somethings missing. which is why scrubs is the best.

Not only does it show real life medical exploits, but it manages to shroud them in a way that viewers can still relate to, but thats not entirely the hard, naked truth. its ingenious. from watching the series, you get all the little bits, rounds, treating a patient, researching what may be wrong with him/her/it, but all that stuff which manages to look fun really are mundane. so, i get the boring stuff out the way at work, then go home, watch scrubs on DVD, and thats my release. Scrubs is like my life, but a more twisted, conceptual version. and that is why, scrubs is the best. Its very much like the episode with the Comedy Script writer. you come back home from a hard days work of treating people, and scrubs is your release.
