  • Summary: This half-hour comedy focuses on the bizarre experiences of fresh-faced medical intern John "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff) as he embarks on his healing career in a surreal hospital crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients – where humor and tragedy can merge paths at any time.JoiningThis half-hour comedy focuses on the bizarre experiences of fresh-faced medical intern John "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff) as he embarks on his healing career in a surreal hospital crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients – where humor and tragedy can merge paths at any time.Joining the rumpled J.D. in his exhilarating brave new world are his college buddy, Chris Turk (Donald Faison, "Clueless"), an intern with a more elite surgical group, and J.D.'s fellow medical intern, the beautiful and driven Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke, "Roseanne"). Keeping the new interns on their toes are: The fatherly chief of medicine, Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins); the abrasive, worldly Dr. Perry Cox (John McGinley), and the caring but slightly jaded nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes). The hospital janitor (Neil Flynn) also never seems to miss an opportunity to harass his target.Scrubs is filmed in a real-life hospital. It's the North Hollywood Medical Center, which has gone under severe reconstruction to fit all the equipment and represent Sacred Heart Hospital.

    The Opening Theme Song:
    "Superman" performed by Lazlo Bane

    This season is where the show really becomes a one of a kind show from anything else and I consider this the best season of Scrubs. The blendThis season is where the show really becomes a one of a kind show from anything else and I consider this the best season of Scrubs. The blend of comedy and drama is pitch perfect, the characters struggle on as they continue to adapt in the stressful settings of a hospital and has the episode considered one of the best Scrubs could offer. "My Screw Up" is the reason why people should be watching Scrubs from this point on because its writing and script is down right masterful and the twist ending is one of the best TV has to offer.

    One of the best sit-coms of the last twenty years.
