Trivia

For the first eight seasons almost every episode title begins with the word "My". Notable exceptions are the episodes entitled "His Story", "His Story II", "Her Story", "Her Story II", "His Story III" and ''His Story IV'' These episodes each contained internal narration from a character other than JD. (Dr. Cox, Turk, Elliot, Carla, The Janitor and Dr. Kelso respectively). There is also "Their Story" in which we hear the thoughts of Ted, the Todd and Jordan. In "Their Story II" the thoughts of 3 interns are followed. Starting with season nine every episode title starts with "Our". See more »

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 »

A real shock...
12 May 2006 | by (South East of England) – See all my reviews

I was very surprised to like this comedy. I am one who does not like American humour but I love this. It reminds me of a TV 'Dramedy' we have over in the UK called teachers. The characters are consistent throughout the three seasons that I have viewed and very enjoyable. To be honest, I didn't get on with it at first but given time, I'm glad I gave it an extra chance to prove itself.

The soundtrack through the series is well chosen, the tunes really do fit in with the story of what is actually happening and there are some episodes that have a serious undertone which many of us could learn from.

I love the use of actually getting inside the characters minds (day dreams etc.) which gives it that extra dimension of comedy and stretches the limits of creativity, there is just so much that can be done with that idea.

Some lovely guest star appearances and topped off by supporting characters that stay loyal to the show rounds this up as a great US Comedy which I (i can't believe it myself) adore.
