    The new season looks promising. Let's just hope these kids can sing.

    A ninth season. Wow. In fact, a change of scenery has done Scrubs a world of good. The new students are funny. McGinley is great as always--so, too, is Turk (Donald Faison).
  3. It's a solid little comedy, in which Scrubs fans can recognize the spirit of the show they loved, even if it's not Scrubs at its best.

    Scrubs has lost none of its endearing ability to mix earnest sentiment with sardonic gag-centric humor.

    The rest of the new or new-ish faces are occasionally funny one-note characters....Still, the old crew made me laugh on more than one occasion as I watched the first two episodes of Season 9 (the Todd made me giggle every time he turned up).

    It may be the result of the show's cancellation and it may be the lowest rated season, but it doesn't mean it's entirely bad. This is the showIt may be the result of the show's cancellation and it may be the lowest rated season, but it doesn't mean it's entirely bad. This is the show trying to do something different, revamping the show with new cast members, a bold move rarely seen in successful shows and it should at least be applauded for making that effort alone. But the result is sometimes stale, the concept of setting the show in a medical school is missing the shows' trademark humor, like J.D. and his fantasy sequences, but it does, however, give the show a nice, fresh look. The new characters could be funny, that's how all shows start, but there's not enough character development, compare to previous seasons, to root for the shows' new lead, Lucy Bennett. The new cast tries their best but ultimately, it's the original cast, Dr. Cox and Turk, who holds the show together. It's missing the humor of the original cast and the show has lost it's touch but even though season 9 is lacking, it's still a pretty good one. Full Review »

I looked at this show as more of a spin-off, and maybe if it had be advertised that way, it would have had more success. I enjoyed it as if it was something different and unexpected. Don't try to compare it to the classic version of Scrubs because they are to different. Just enjoy the jokes and storylines. I did. Full Review »
