  • 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

    Season 5 shows a brand new lease on Scrubs as it shows a full maturity in all the main characters of the show. J.D. is now an attending physician, Dr. Cox shows that even a veteran doctor like him can still take it hard if things go really bad, Turk and Carla are attempting to have their first child and Elliot tries to become independent from her friends and colleagues to make in on top on her own. The mix of comedy and drama is still there though not as impacting, with the exception of "My Lunch" which is right there with "My Screw Up" as one of Scrubs' finest episodes

    Probably the best Scrubs Season of all time. This season establishes itself as more of a comedy with some element of drama. EveryonesProbably the best Scrubs Season of all time. This season establishes itself as more of a comedy with some element of drama. Everyones perfomance is incredible and guests like Jason Betemen and Mandy Moore do a fantasic job. It starts off a little dry but it gets more funny as each episode goes one. Zach Braff does his thing as he is really tested in this season, from dispising Eliotts boy toy to trying to get Dr Cox back on his feet after making a fatal mistake even being there for Turk when Carla is pregnant and even kocking up Elizabeth Banks. it's a must watch season Expand

Still very much recommended overall, though! Expand
