Scrubs sucked (me in again)

Scrubs sucked (me in again)

TV & Radio
As previously documented on this very site, Scrubs has managed to rescue itself somewhat from comedy purgatory.  After seven turbulent seasons on NBC (including a strike-shortened seventh last year), the show made its debut on ABC last night with a pair of new episodes.  So due to the fact that season 7 was somewhat respectable, and also due to the fact that not many shows have returned yet, I gave the show another chance. So far so good I have to say.  While I think the gut-busting days of the first five years are long gone, Scrubs can still be entertaining.  On the plus side, the juvenile and somewhat scatological humor from the last few years was gratefully absent.  The writing style and stories reminded me very much of vintage Scrubs.  The cast is largely intact, save for the introd

Aside from that, here are some of the more interesting search terms people have used to get to this blog: "christa miller plastic surgery" - OK, so I'm not the only one who is put off by the botched plastic surgery Christa Miller of Scrubs got within the last few years. She's got this w...

I'm not sure how to react to the news that Scrubs will in fact be back for a seventh and final season on NBC. As I opined back in March, this season has been a big disappointment. I will temper that by admitting that over the last 5 or 6 episodes the quality has improved dramatically, but not quite to the consistently awesome level of previous years. I still have some issues with the way the series has developed this year (way too much toilet humor - and in the case of the last episode that was literal; the increasingly tired J.D./Elliot relationship woes; having to look at Christa Miller's botched plastic surgery, etc.), but I suppose things have improved enough that I am willing to watch the last season and see how things wrap up. It is only 18 episodes so I guess I can handle that...
