    A lot of the humor in Scrubs is sick. Many jokes are made at the expense of old people on the brink of death, or sitting comatose in a wheelchair. [2 Oct 2001, p.E3]

    Great show. The entire series was hilarious from start to finish! I always find myself thinking about Scrubs and what wonderful story-lines, comedy, drama, and cast it had. This review doesn't even scratch the surface of how enjoyable it was! Full Review »

    My personal favorite TV show for the first 9 seasons, the moment J.D. left the show I found it unfunny.

    Has a great underlying effect on its
    viewer, by usually ending on a voice-over reflecting on a lesson that could be learned within the episodes main plot. Full Review »

    One of the greatest shows I have ever seen on TV. It's odd yet compelling collection of characters, especially Dr. Perry Cox, who is one of the greatest written characters ever, surreal comedy and realistic portrayal of hospital life is what makes this show stand out from the rest. The first season has many of Scrub's finest episodes, particularly "My Old Lady" which completely severs the notion of Scrubs being just a comedy show, showing the emotional reality of working in a hospital or "My Occurrence" which shows the bond between a patient and a doctor. Great start to a great series. Full Review »
