Anyone still watch this show? It's one of my favorite shows. I'm liking this new season so far, although it's a little odd that they have had two new shows each week the last two weeks. I'm just glad to see it back.

Love the show. It's probably tied with Family Guy as my favorite.
For a while it was a show I've never really had a chance to see much of because it was always on when I was in class, but I would watch it every chance I got.
I got season 1 on DVD for my birthday and watched it probably a dozen times. And I got season 2 for Christmas (and just started my second round of viewing). Can't wait fir season 3 to be released.
I don't think there has been a bad episode, IMO.

These first 4 eps have been a little uneven, but by the end of each hour I feel like they have gotten back on track with solid funny. I really hope they don't bother going down the JD with Elliott road again, it's happened twice now and both times weakened the show.

I was surprised that Elliott got her job back at Sacred Fart (that *was* a good one :D) because the producers had said she was gonna keep her job at the other hospital for a while, but I can't say that was working for the show anyway so...

I really hope NBC doesn't end up cancelling the show at the end of this season, it seems like they are punishing the series for Zack Braff having to delay his first week back of filming a week by delaying the season premiere 3 months.

I must say that I have enjoyed the first four episodes so far as Scrubs has been my favorite show for the last several years. I really missed it when those goofs at NBC pushed the season back for so long. I thought it was going to be gone when it was not on the Fall lineup back in the summer. The four episodes have all been solid and reminded me how much I was missing.
I believe that NBC is putting two episodes on per night for awhile to get it "caught-up" with the other shows in this season.

I thought it was strange when Elliott came back to Sacred Heart also as the big season finale last year had someone leaving the hospital. But, I am happy that she is back.

BTW, the "Bruce Lee" opening was great!!!

JT, were they really punishing the show or just continuing with tradition. Scrubs started as a mid-season replacement and each season has debuted new episodes in december or january.

i'm glad it's back, but now that they've moved my name is earl to thursdays i have 2 nites a week to turn the tube on.

Zack Braff himself was quoted as saying that he thought they were punishing the show for a 1-week starting delay, which wouldn't really have affected their schedule at all but the suits didn't like being challenged.

You're mistaken about when it started though, its first ep was 10/2/01, right in line with the normal fall season. The next ep was only 2 days later, back when they really wanted folks to watch the show, then the 9th kicked off their regular airing schedule for that year. Season 2 started on 9/26/02, again right at the beginning of NBC's fall schedule. Season 3 was 10/3/03. Season 4 was actually a month early with 8/31/04. And each season has ended on time either in late April or May.

i bow at the altar of knowledge that is JT.

anyone else find that this season they seem to be forcing the chemistry that seemed to come a little more naturally in the earlier seasons?

This season does seem to be a little more forced. I guess I enjoyed watching the thinking of some scarred new Doctors. Now, they are not as new and afraid. It just looses a little something in the new condition.

Great show! Zach Braff is an underrated talent. Did you guys see his Garden State movie? Great writing & acting in that. I totally recommend it.

Darth Jax
01-24-2006, 10:10 PM
i saw garden state. i'd like to say that it was great all around (acting/writing/music), because that's the popular opinion to have. but really it was only mediocre.

tonite's first episode seemed to recapture the feel of the early ones. the inclusion of ted's band in their ever-changing themes of music was great to see, and the way they incorporated the wizard of oz completed it.

UKWildcat
01-24-2006, 10:31 PM
I thought Garden State was a good movie, I enjoyed it. You are right, it was well written and directed. And of course Natalie Portman. :thumbsup:

Ted's band is awesome. I get a kick out of them everytime. They did a real good job on Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". Excellent song btw.

Another great night of Scrubs....not sure if they are ever gonna just give us one new episode a night instead of two. Not really complaining, but whatever.

Rocketboy
01-25-2006, 10:44 AM
I love Garden State. It's one of my favorite movies.

Last nights episodes of Scrubs were great. I loved the whole Wizard of Oz theme and the way all the little pieces were there (like Toto on the ipod, the yellow line, and red shoes, ect), but you didn't totally put it all together until it was spelled out at the commercial.

JediTricks
01-25-2006, 03:16 PM
The first ep last night was their 100th, and it felt TOTALLY back on track unlike the rest of this season where it feels a little forced (still entertaining, but not as much so), the whole thing was built perfectly and I started picking up on the Wizard of Oz cues about 5 minutes in (although I missed the reference on the red-painted shoes until the last shot was closing).

The second ep was entertaining too, although I think the chemistry of the comedy is what's forced, not the chemistry of the characters, JD doing mic-check is an example of that (he's become too over the top), and some of the stuff going on which led to the patient's death was a victim of their "forced comedy", JD and Turk leaving the hospital during their shifts just to get the guy's thank-you seemed way too out there, same with Elliott's predicament. But it still worked as a lesson ep, even if the writers were too lazy to actually put together driving forces that got them there. JD getting caught narrating was pretty good though.

JediTricks
02-08-2006, 03:04 PM
Those were 2 pretty good eps, a little scattered but not as forced as some of the earlier eps this season, and I liked that they were able to show JD that he finally broke up with a girl for the right reason.

I was disappointed that the Air Band's video on the NBC.com website wasn't more than 1 song, it was just the full version of "More than a Feeling" which wasn't that much more than what we saw.

Darth Jax
02-08-2006, 07:51 PM
JT, how can you mention last nites eps and not talk about LANDO?!? there really was no reason for his cameo, but is there really ever a good reason for a cameo. turk's refusal to recognize him as another but Lando totally is how any fanboy would react.

DarthQuack

Best part of the episodes were Billy Dee of course and the air band segments, I thought it was hilarious.

The way that Turk squealed with delight at seeing Billy Dee and then calling him nothing but Lando was hilarious. I seriously laughed so hard that my wife came in from another room to see what the hell was going on.

I like where this season is heading with JD, I think that he is on the verge of...something special for him. Turk and Carla's marriage is starting to annoy me though.

JD treating Keith like garbage seemed a bit much to me, 1 ep maybe but as a continuing thing, I don't see it. Still, the rest of the episodes were pretty good, though the ending to the second one with the "to be continued" was a real kick in the groin.

JediTricks
03-17-2006, 01:42 PM
Well, the continuation was ok, Dave Foley is always a welcome guest though so that was cool. Dealing with death is never that funny though. ;)


This last ep was good, the characters had just regular character time rather than "big important story time". There was lots of emotional content, lots of comedy, the janitor got one-upped, Kelso and Cox found a middle ground, and Elliott that great bit with the emptied eggs and apples. The only thing I didn't like was how JD came to Elliott's rescue at the end, she WAS in the wrong with giving Keith special treatment and nobody really addressed that.

I've been watching the reruns recently, which are showing on Comedy Central, WGN, and the CW (in my area, anyway). It's been good to catch up on stuff I missed, as I only started watching this most recent season.

New episodes finally start on November 30 after My Name is Earl and the Office, and before 30 Rock, which will be a sweet night of TV. I saw a commercial for it, which showed that Turk was apparently going to miss the birth of his kid. Should be pretty good.

Oh, yeah, and I have a Scrubs avatar too.

It was a good premiere. I didn't realize the woman was Zach Braff until after I realized the Janitor was the old guy. I just thought it was a regular guy in drag. Anyone notice her name - Mrs. Zeebee (Z.B. - Zach Braff).

As for the musical episode, you can get a sneak peek if you use itunes.

It's been a while since I've LOL'd at a TV show, and the reruns have been funny enough to do just that. Oddly enough, since this season's opening episode was more serious in its tone, I didn't laugh that much.

JediTricks
12-09-2006, 07:14 PM
Yeah, the first ep was a little tough to laugh with, but it had some funny moments. I thought this Thursday's episode where Carla has the baby was pretty funny, the thing with the miracle dog was good, everybody slapping Turk for Carla was great, everything that Jack said was hysterical ("my mommy got an abortion, my mommy got an abortion"), JD's woman was no slouch in the funny department, Keith's admission about another of Elliot's creepy fetishes was... disturbing. :D I was surprised at the frank and non-Afterschool-Special manner they dealt with the abortion thing, that was pretty good, even got a few laughs out of it.

Yea, I hope it's not true either. They are only signed on for this season, so I guess it's up in the air. I've heard/read mixed things... There is, of course, the possibility that even if Braff leaves, they would continue on but Scrubs would definitely NOT be the same w/o him, since he is the central/focal character. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out. Like I said, I hope the show comes back...but only with Braff. If Braff leaves, they should just end strong and hang it up (just my opinion of course ;)).

Rocketboy

I heard this could be the last season quite a while ago also. I think it was during Zach's press for "The Last Kiss."
I automatically assumed it was a ploy for more money.

JimJamBonds

There was a press release from NBC saying that The Office, My Name Is Earl and another show (or two) have been picked up for the entire 07-08 season and Scrubs wasn't on that list.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
01-21-2007, 01:20 PM
I think they should at least do one more season; I mean, it would be weird to introduce two more pregnancies into the show and not follow up on them after the birth. But, then again, it's had six seasons, which is quite a lot for a show whose schedule has been screwed with so many times.

But oh boy, I can't wait for sequels to Chicken Little and The Last Kiss. :dead: ;)

Good call kh. They (the writers) definitely have that option should they continue the show and not have Braff come back. I still stand by my statement though, that if Braff leaves, they should just end strong and hang it up. Of course, I do want the show to return with the entire cast intact.

Kidhuman
01-22-2007, 01:44 PM
If he doesnt return, it would be odd. The last show could be like this. Elliot goes to her own office in private practice, JD to Washington, Carla and Turk stay(or move cross country) with Cox and Kelso still left there as new interns come in.

Anyway, Scrubs is never picked up in advance that way, NBC has been screwing the series for 3 years ever since Zach Braff asked for a 3 week production start delay so he could finish a small film and the network pushed the release of that season back 4 months in retaliation. It'd be really stupid of them to dump Scrubs when they have so few good shows - in ratings or in critical response.


I don't think the series could continue without JD, he's the main character and without him the show doesn't have a core. It's like the last season of "That '70s Show" without Eric Foreman, it totally sucked the big one because it was so devoid.

I guess that means we won't be losing her anytime soon, but I fear it's always possible. I'm glad they're expanding on her character, she started funny but somehow for a while got lost in the writing and became generic.

Scrubs has a lot of characters that I don't think would work without JD balancing them, Elliot is getting kinda unpleasant and Dr Cox I don't think could work right - and the Janitor... well, that's just plain wrong.

He's been picking on Dr Cox, but they came to an agreement. Picked on Turk a little but that kinda went away. The janitor picks on just about everybody, except for "Blond Doctor" of course, but JD is his pet project. To be honest, I kinda don't care for the janitor anyway, I hate characters like that and like Mimi on The Drew Carey Show who are all mean all the time like that.

I'll take a different view. I liked this episode. Yeah, the war stuff was a tad out-of-place, but then since the arguments in favor/against were simplisitic, it could be easily ignored. I was reminded of the Simpsons episode where they showed you life through various characters' eyes (was it "22 Views of Springfield" or something?), since Bob doesn't get focused on all that much.

I thought there was some entertaining stuff in this ep, and revisiting the "Johnny" tattoo on Kelso's butt was a great piece of continuity (yes, it's been mentioned once before seasons ago), but they made Kelso such a deeper character that I feared throughout the episode all the way to the end that they were going to kill him (it helps that there was a rumor about a longtime regular character dying) - I'm still worried they might. I didn't mind the lack of JD in this one too much but it wasn't something I thought would work on a weekly basis either.

The only thing I didn't like was that a bunch of the episodes had hanging plot threads that weren't sewn up because the episodes immediately following weren't shown.

It was weird to see how much Elliot has changed.


Brandon Frasier was the best cameo character on the show to me. Funny as hell. Too bad he died.Yeah, I remember feeling the same way when I saw the ep in first-run, it really hit hard.

That was SO wrong of Kim to do to JD. He travels all that way to be with her and she lies to him. All in all a funny episode. Ted running off at the end was hilarious. Janitor getting amnesia with JD was funny too. I laughed so hard when he walked right out of the RV.

This was a mixed bag of an episode, once again I kept fearing someone would die, this time Jordan, and it was 1 emotional kick in the jimmie after another, but there were some funny moments (even if tearing off the side of the RV was totally stupid). I was actually yelling at the screen when JD went back for the janitor after he took that wrong step.

It was totally messed up for Kim to panic like that, but I can slightly see where she was coming from (slightly!) - she's not sure about the relationship and her future and etc.. I bet anything this will be the way out for Zack Braff at the end of the season.

Yeah, that was hella crazy for Kim to lie to JD like that; I couldn't believe it.

Pretty hysterical episode though. The random truck horns were great, especially the one that responded to Turk. I also liked the random kimonos and the strippers pole in the RV; that dirty Kelso. Braff mentioned on his blog that he would stay for a 7th season if he felt it was right and they would do some "minor scheduling tweaks"; i also just read that the 7th season will be the last one. I really don't see Braff leaving the show, especially in a final season. He's the heart and soul of the show and Bill Lawrence basically said if Braff isn't back, there won't be a 7th season, period.

And lastly, a bit late: I DVR that entire marathon and watched it last weekend. There are also 4 episodes on tonight 7-9. I just wish Target or Best Buy would put the first few seasons on sale, dammit! :crazed:

I know I'm a bit behind here but I thought it was a good episode (minus the side coming off of the rv). When I saw the preview I figured Kim would tell JD that he wasn't the father so I didn't see her "miscarrage" comment coming... or the fact she still has the youngling. Since I'm not all that familar with the show could the child infact have a different father?

JediTricks
02-13-2007, 04:41 PM
Kim said it was definitely JD's, and while she did deceive about the miscarriage, I don't think the writers are going for the same kind of deception so at this point I'm thinking it definitely is his.

My favorite line has to be Janitor's "Knife wrehhhnch. For kids." Fav moment? Apparently I can't choose it. :mad: :p

BTW, I found a mistake in the last episode! (pushes thick glasses back, snorts nerdily) The nurse says to Carla after Turk shoves Elliot near the finish line that, and I quote (snort! ), "there aren't any rules in bedpan racing." But earlier, Turk tells Elliot that she has to put the bedpan on her feet, which is clearly a rule! Way to go, lame-o writers! Ever think about checking your scripts! (snort! heh heh! )

And we can't forget that girlish scream he does. lol I'm really enjoying this story arc with Brian as it's making for some great episodes. :whip:

Braff cleans up with "Scrubs" payday

Tue Mar 06, 2:22 AM ET

Zach Braff is about to land a big payday, as long as his hospital comedy "Scrubs" gets renewed by NBC for a seventh season.

The actor has cut a one-year deal with "Scrubs" producer ABC TV Studio that will pay him about $350,000 per episode for the 2007-08 season of "Scrubs," sources said. Each season consists of about two-dozen episodes.

Braff's deal is contingent on NBC picking up the show for a seventh year, which is expected, notwithstanding its lowly season-to-date viewership of 6.9 million people, according to Nielsen Media Research.

If so, Braff's new deal would place him among the highest-paid male actors on television, alongside "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen, whose paycheck also is in the $350,000-per-episode range.

Representatives for Braff and ABC Television declined comment.

Braff is the anchor of the ensemble on "Scrubs," playing the amiable medical intern John "J.D." Dorian. Braff's star has been on the rise during the past few years thanks to "Scrubs" and the strong response to his author turn as writer, director and star of the 2004 indie romantic comedy "Garden State." His upcoming projects include a starring role in the comedy "The Ex," and he is slated to star and direct the drama "Open Hearts" for Paramount Pictures.

This was a weird episode, there were funny parts but the Janitor standing there didn't work until the payoff at the end, and the fish wasn't actually dead at that point. Also, Elliott getting all somberly maudlin didn't work for me at all, especially the last scene. Private Dancer turning into a tool failed as well. And how did Perry get his hair back?!? And Carla's jokes not working, that was oddly out of character. This ep mostly worked for me though, but it did feel like someone who wasn't all that familiar with innermost workings of the show wrote it... weird, I see this was written by the AICN guy who edited and wrote a few others, he should be familiar enough with it as a fanboy if nothing else, maybe it got chopped up in editing.

A lot of the more recent episodes have been dealing with some pretty heavy stuff, and last night's was probably the best example. I hope Laverne is okay, even though I tend to side with Dr. Cox's theory on that kind of stuff.

With all of JT's talk of doom and gloom coming up this season, and the cable guide saying "a conversation about everything happening for a reason gets cut short when tragedy hits someone close," and the fact that nearly every supporting character appeared, I was worrying pretty much the entire episode.

JediTricks
03-23-2007, 07:06 PM
When Jordan got all mushy with Dr Cox, I was afraid they were gonna kill her, but in the beginning of the episode I was sure it'd be Laverne who'd die based on how much face time she was getting and the message they were sending. The "To Be Continued" surprised me though, they've not done that before that I can think of even when the story DOES have to continue in the next ep. I still suspect she'll die.

Jedi_Master_Guyute
03-23-2007, 09:04 PM
I'm so bummed that Laverne is in a coma. It still makes me wonder though if they'll have her come back from the coma and randomly off somebody else. You know they won't kill off one of the main characters, so that leaves us with Laverne, the Todd, "Nervous Guy," Dr. Wen, or Ted, as that's all of the original folks I can remember. Frankly, killing off Jordan would make Dr. Cox go crazy and he's already suffered one death, i don't see the show giving him another one.

But it's probably gonna be Laverne. That bums me out as she's one of my favorite characters. The Hilton sisters are named after her breasts for petes sake!! Plus, she always had some of the best one liners. Guess we'll have to wait until next week. It will be interesting to see Dr. Cox's reaction to this though. :(

Besides that, great episode. I LOVED the guys lying in unison, that was great. And the "hot racist!" comment at the end by Turk had me laughing.

Kidhuman
03-23-2007, 10:05 PM
I think this about Lavernes coma, we were all wondering about Dr. Cox and his shaved head. Jt stated that the reason would be upcoming so follow the theory here:

Jordan sarcastically pointed out his hair-do. The whole religous aspect that the episode had makes me belive that Dr. Cox will ask God to save her life and he will shave his head in return. As I said, just a feeling I had.


That said, it was a funny episode up until Laverne went into a coma. The whole snakes bit with the janitor had me laughing and also the guy lie. Turks face right before it went into the opening song killed me when JD grabbed his leg.

I know it was all in Carla's head, but Kelso was pretty friendly with her. That caught me off guard :sur: All in all, very good episode tonight, but i am really bummed to see Nurse Roberts go.

The superman comment was damn funny as was the janitor talking to her. Kelso is always funny, I cant beleive he kissed a comatose woman, that killed me.

All in all, very good episode tonight, but i am really bummed to see Nurse Roberts go. I'll miss her wacky Jesus comments and her sass. :(Decent episode indeed, I'm growing really tired of Elliot though. I'm not too sad to see Laverne go, she was a part of the recipe but not a major one. If it had been Ted or Todd, I would have been more bummed (if it had been Janitor, less bummed :p). I was REALLY glad they didn't name the kid Laverne, that would have been too sentimental to stomach.

I hated this show when it first aired over here. it semd to be trying too hard to be funny. Now that I've seen some more i can see that the trying to be funny is part of the whole thing. failed jokes are funny too. Awkwardness and uncertainty give rise to brilliant pathos and bathos.

unfortunately the episodes i get to see are all out of order so i'm seeing season one mixed with season three or whatever. making it hard to follow. Plus it feels like the time slot keeps getting moved around. pah. good show though.

- And how did you like it when he was called by his doctor title and didn't know who it was!
- Janitors comment about working so slow and being order to work slower he'd have to stop was awesome.
- I did like Jordan's comment to perry about the random cut on his arm.

I thought this was a pretty good episode, I really enjoyed Todd and Ted's inner monologues a lot. Jordan's was ok, but revealed nothing new because she's always vocalized her feelings on everything quite well, so most of this didn't really feel insightful.

My only real complaint was that by switching 30 Rock and Scrubs' timeslots, now the funny hospital show leads into the serious hospital show and it's an awkward transition.

Hysterical episode tonight!!

- the "Dayumn!" coffee table bit was great.
- Everybody imagining life with Elliot was classic. I loved the baby Janitors and doctors. Also, Perry killing her was great. He has such a great evil, diabolical smile sometimes. I also liked the blip of Turk/Elliot and Turk acting "white" and then kicking into his usual dialect was hysterical.
- The Mermaid/Goat Turk bit was great.
- Kelso in the shower kinda creeped me out, a lot.
- but Kelso's comment about hoisting Enid on the safety rail had me laughing, hysterically.
- Todd's GILF shirt. lol
- And what as up with Carla's vision of her and Elliot married?!?! Hot.
- "God is watching!" was great.

And I really hope that JD doesn't mess this up for Elliot and finds a new lady, probably in the next season. He and Elliot do NOT belong together, period.

If JD and Elliott get back together for the 19th time, that would just be stupid. It just doesn't work between them and it hasn't for the past six damn years.

Keri Russell doesn't seem to fit in very well, which happens quite often with their "extended guest stars." Last night's show was pretty good, though; I loved the "damn!" sequence. :D

So, is this really the last season, or did they actually decide to do another?

I read that Kim will return soon and JD will find out she's still pregnant. Should be interesting, if it's true.

I thought this was an alright ep, some pretty funny moments, Carla in a maid's outfit was YOWZA (which is weird since she normally doesn't do it for me) and then Carla married to Elliot was more of that. The plot was a little off for me but mostly worked right up until JD did that "I need to be with Elliot" crap again, that totally ruined it for me, they've gone to that well 1 time too many now and it felt absolutely grotesque. If they had revealed that part earlier, I would have expected Cox to explain to JD why he's mistaken about his feelings there and that would have been great, but instead it's just mean and soap-opera-y.

Good episdoe. The funny moments:

Turk moving acorss the room to ask the question.

JD looked all set to tell Elliot how he was feeling and then Kim walked in. Should be interesting.

I dont blame JD for leaving. I might have done the same in that situation. She basically gave him the finger when she said she miscarried.

Old MC was kinda funny but like not quite perfect, like they just stopped writing the funny stuff and let him stay 1-note.

It was a fairly decent episode, I didn't expect JD to run, it seemed a little too easy for them to do. Kim seems like not entirely understanding of what she pulled there, so the scene didn't quite have enough weight when she said she considered raising the kid alone - that was crass. It was pretty good to see JD go from being at his most ridiculous overly-goofy material to more mature as soon as he saw what was up.

Even though I liked Friends, I couldn't stand that element of the show; and it's sad to see the same thing happening to Scrubs. Overall I thought it was an okay finale, nothing spectacular. It was a good season though, and I'm very pleased that it is coming back.

First off, they shouldn't have bothered doing this as a 1-hour ep when it was CLEARLY written as 2 separate episodes. It thinned what was in there and trivialized some of the story aspects, most notably JD and Kim's time together.

I felt surprisingly bad that JD didn't get to be Cox's daughter's godfather.


Jordan has turned to carp the last few seasons. Girlfriend needs to calm down with the Botox.Yeah, I feel awful when I see Christa Miller, she had such a cute face and is such a funny actress, but the more she messes with her face, especially her lips, the freakier she is to look at and it becomes distracting.


Kelso and his cat fight were funny. So was his story about Enid chasing the neighbor around. Heh heh, that was disturbingly funny.


I say JD and Elliot stop before they get into it and Kim drops the kid at her wedding for the season premiere next yearI suspect they're faking you guys out and JD and Elliot are only holding hands to reassure each other that they're doing the right things with their respective significant others, they'll come back and JD and Elliot will hop off the table and go directly to their homes and move forward, no sex, no kissing, no nothing.


This is one of my favorite shows, but I hate how they go back to JD and Elliot, it reminds me of freaking Friends with Ross and Rachel, they try to get them together 8 million times instead of keeping them away from each other, I don't want Kim to be alone damn it!Yeah, ostracizing Kim was pretty harsh enough, she's funny and fits JD well, they shouldn't even consider playing that Ross & Rachel stuff, it's pap and they've been better than this.

I've only been watching Scrubs for about 6 months but in that time I've watched Seasons I - IV along with random episodes from V and VI. When did this show stop being a comedy and turn into drama? What I have watched from VI is decent but nothing like those early seasons, I don't see how it could last past season VII.

And that ain't necessarily a good thing.


Scrubs Resuscitates Wright's role
Source: Variety (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117966985.html?categoryid=14&cs=1)
June 14, 2007

When "Scrubs" creator Bill Lawrence decided last season to kill off Nurse Laverne Roberts -- one of the show's key supporting characters -- he made a promise to actress Aloma Wright, reports Variety.

Should "Scrubs" return for a seventh season, he told Wright, she could don a new wig and play Laverne's twin sister, Shirley.

When Lawrence first plotted Nurse Roberts' death, he was pretty certain that "Scrubs" was in its final year. Mapping out the final year's storylines, he decided the death of a series regular would help shake things up.

A seventh season wasn't assured until the weekend before the upfront presentations last month, when NBC narrowly opted to renew "Scrubs" for one last year. Now, Lawrence is keeping his promise, and Wright has been given the opportunity to play a character who's the polar opposite of the spiritually minded Laverne: a single, alcoholic woman who shuns religion.http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=21047

It's one thing for Kim not to be at the funeral of Brendan Fraser's character (which I assume you're talking about), since she was just a random hospital worker who likely had nothing to do with him. It's quite different for someone's twin sister not to attend a funeral, even if she's apathetic or alcoholic or whatever.

Dunno. I just think this kind of takes away from the impact of her death in the first place. I might be able to tolerate this for one or two episodes but if she's a recurring character that'll just be too much.

JediTricks
06-18-2007, 10:35 PM
I don't mind it much, Laverne's death really didn't mean much outside the 2 episodes where they specifically forced it to resonate, and Laverne's character was way different in the earlier seasons. It'll seem weird at first though, no question.

As for why she wasn't at the funeral, could be they didn't get along, she was out of the country at the time, doesn't like funerals, black sheep of the family so they told her to stay away...

Comedy Central had the first-ever episode on the other day. That one wasn't as funny, a bit more of the serious tone of certain later episodes. But you could see where they were going with the series. Weird remembering that Turk and Carla weren't a couple. Note: Dr. Cox called him J.D., and no mentions of a woman's name for him.

I liked the pilot a lot, but I was glad they eased up on the drama as it was too heavy at the time.

Cox calls him JD several times throughout the first season, JD kinda earns his girl names by getting more comfortable and behaving more like JD we know later.

I really disliked the way the writers backpeddled JD's girlfriend being a good fit for him and the same with Elliot and Keith simply for another season of emotional fodder. And they covered it with faux depth which bothered me a lot. There were some good gags, some lame gags, and some funny flashes, but ultimately this felt like the wrong direction and it weighed down the episode.

I really enjoyed tonights episode. It was good that JD and Kim ended things as I didn't want it to drag on for the season. I did enjoy their angry moments in the delivery room.

Kelso drunk was great stuff. I do like how he's supportive of his son, who we really need to meet before the season ends. Anybody else agree?

Cox was great tonight too; his tormenting of the interns was funny and Pint Size's voice irritates the crap out of me.

Plus, I LOVED the random cameo from Colin Hay and the VERY quick scene with Laverne's sister. I loved how JD touched on it and nothing else was said. Probably saving it for the next episode.

One question though: just who in the hell was watching Izzy (Turk and Carla's daughter) when they were at the hospital?!??!

This was on IMDB news just today:

Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence refused to write an emergency finale to the hit TV show amid writers' strikes in Hollywood - because he insists the show will go on. Lawrence declined a pre-strike request to create a back-up ending for the show which would allow Abc Studios to finish filming the series early if the strikes continue into next year. Instead, Lawrence will carry on writing the show as usual and is refusing to let the dispute disrupt the making of the show. He tells Moviehole.net, "I will use all my leverage to end this show properly, even if it means I have to do all the voices myself and call people up to read it over the phone." Members of the Writers Guild Of America have been striking since last week after talks between the union and studio representatives failed to resolve a dispute over royalties. The hospital sitcom is one of several shows - including Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives - that may be forced to halt production if the writers' walkout continues.

Kelso is the best character on there. Dr. Cox was funny back when, but now its all about Kelso ad Turk.

Was anybody else suprised that Dr. Kelso walked off? If the show was ending in May then it makes sense however since there will be another season I didn't see it happening.

I'm not sure if I said this in this thread or not but my prediction has been that Cox gets Kelso's job and JD take Cox's.

I was surprised. Kelso is one of my favorite characters, if not my favorite character, and he will definitely be missed (if he is gone for good). :cry:

I love how he went out though, 'on his own terms'. lol

Dang it! Did I miss an episode? I thought this week was the newest one. If I could post Eliot's favorite German curse word here, I would! :upset:

I thought this was a little sentimental, but did a good job, and Kelso walking out was a big surprise. I thought it interesting that Kelso showed himself to be more like Cox than we expected, and vice-versa, which made for a good statement but didn't seem all that honest to either character.

Zach Braff posted a Scrubs update on Myspace:
Dear Friends,
I am sorry it has taken me so long to write, but I feel kindo silly posting without anything too interesting to say. I've also been stalling to talk about some big Scrubs news, however I've just been informed that I'm not allowed to talk about anything related to Scrubs and it's current fate. What I can tell you is that we are currently shooting 18 episodes for the 8th season. I am not allowed to discuss where one might watch them. (More news to come.)

But I can tell you that the coolest episode we've ever done is going to air on May 8th at 8:30(E/P). I directed it and it's a GIANT homage to "The Princess Bride". Dr. Cox has to make up a fairy tale for his son and he does so using everything that happened in the hospital that day. It's by far the most epic (and expensive) episode we've ever done. (Monsters, potions, evil wizards, giants, hunchbacks, gnomes – like "World of Warcraft", but Scrubs…)
I'll be posting an exclusive clip on this site in a few days.Unless the Scrubs on ABC deal fell through I don't know what the big secret could be, since possibly going to ABC wasn't exactly a secret.

Probably the deal isn't signed yet for distribution, only the paying for it aspect.


Tonight's episode was a little off, but a lot of it worked, especially Ted getting his manhood back (not to be confused with Turk getting his... well, you know). The stuff with Elliot felt really forced though.

I think the stuff with JD and Elliot seemed forced, but might have been that way on pirpose. They have that on and off relationship and I think neither wants to et hurt agai, so they approach each other slowly.

I liked it, some good laughs. Glad to see Kelso in an episode, even if for a few moments.

I missed the first part of the preview for the season finale, what caused Kelso to say that JD and Elliot were suspended?

I thought tonights episode was pretty neat, even though it made no sense with Bob Kelso still being there. They should have aired this one a couple weeks ago, when it was supposed to have aired, and left the season finale with Kelso leaving/looking back. Other than that (major beef), I liked the episode; definitely different.

They interupted it here with the tornado warnings and torms, but they re aired it at 4am so I DVR'd it then. Will watch it later on today

I thought it was cute, but very bad for a so-called "series finale" (which I'm hoping is NOT the case). It was way too much of a throwback to much earlier in the season, and the ending was the standard downer that this show shouldn't go out on. I dunno, as cute as it was, I ultimately feel like NBC cheated us.

huh? It's returning to ABC next year with 18 episodes, according to Braff and McGinley.

I thought it was funny. I liked the My name is....line, quite funny. I dont like the order tey did the last shows in with Kelso, it reminded me of last year when Dr. Cox shaved his head and ten had a full head of hair.

Hadn't heard that. I liked this one; the "cute" line JT used fits well. Never thought Dr. Cox would refer to himself as "Percival." And naming a horse "Sasha?" Makes no sense. Now, for a scooter... :pleased:

I thought it was a good episode but showing it out of order took away from it a bit.

I didn't notice any "series finale" commercials, only "season finale" ones. Actually NBC kept saying it was the "Scrubs finale" - season or series was never mentioned.

huh? It's returning to ABC next year with 18 episodes, according to Braff and McGinley.Yeah, but it's not finalized. NBC screwed over Star Trek exactly the same way, ABC tried to buy it and NBC soured the deal (there they destroyed the sets that ABC was trying to buy, which made the deal financially shaky for ABC, since then they just pull weird contractual options out their bums). In either event though, NBC treated this as a "series finale" in all their ads.
