Goofs

The x-ray with the show's title shown in the beginning is turned the wrong way: the heart should be seen on the right hand side. This was an intentional mistake put in by creator Bill Lawrence to represent the core idea of the show: young doctors in over their heads. Bill Lawrence reminds viewers that this goof was completely intentional in interviews, DVD commentaries, and virtually any other available opportunity. See more »

[grabs J.D. and shoves him in between him and Kelso]
Dr. Cox: Better!

Back To Network Comedy For Me!
5 October 2001 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

Congratulations, NBC, you have gotten somebody who swore off network comedy shows, to tune back in.. "Scrubs" is THE best! Let me explain WHY I had given up network comedy.(And NO, I won't sound like Grandpa Simpson telling one of his stories!!)

As I grew up in the 1970's I was lucky enough to have experienced some of the classic comedy shows of recent memory. Some were legendary, `All In The Family', `M*A*S*H, Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart, `Maude', 'WKRP'.Some forgotten, `The Governor and J.J.', `Nanny and the Professor', But all were pretty much funny, well, funny to a kid like me with a warped sense of humor.

In the 1980's the humor started to change,, and I was in college, and was out either working or goofing off. As the decade passed, I found that I hardly watching sitcom's in general, and spent more time watching cable networks like A&E, or the Discovery Channel. In the 1990's, I rarely had my TV set on a regular broadcast network, preferring MSNBC for news, and such. My friends would ask if I had seen the latest episode of `Friends', or `Mad about You', or `Seinfeld'. Well, I figured, if everyone is talking about these shows, they MUST be funny. Then I'd tune in, and through dumb luck, I'd catch an episode that would go on to be thought of as a `classic' episode. `The Soup Nazi' was the first Seinfeld I had ever seen. So the next time I'd tune in it would be a show I'd not find funny, and I just gave up on network sitcom's again!

The exception to the rule was `The Simpsons'. This was the only network comedy show I'd make time for. Then along comes `Malcolm in the Middle', and I find myself hooked on another situation comedy show. Sure, it's not your father's sitcom, with no laugh track or good Eisenhower era humor, but it is funny.

This leads to `Scrubs'. I had seen so many promo's for it, and read plenty of reviews. So I thought I'd give network comedy another shot. And was I ever glad I did. This show is great! The casting was a good call, and I think every character is a winner. Good job, NBC!
