Includes several references to Friends (1994), including numerous references to Elliot and J.D. being like Rachel and Ross. Courtney Cox and Matthew Perry, who played Monica and Chandler on Friends (1994), also guest starred on this show. See more »


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 »

Brilliant and one of the best shows, yet receiving great wrongness
1 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

I have to say the wrongness of NBC in the case of Scrubs. A show that has been successful for years brining millions of dollars and viewers for NBC. Now when WGA strike'd Season 7 had 11 episodes done out of 18. Now after the strike Scrubs asks from those 7 planned; 3 episodes to wrap up the season. But no NBC had no interest. Luckily that worked rather good for Scrubs. Now we can see a full season on ABC.

Scrubs is the finest show in television since, h-ll I don't know, for a long time. It's been on for seven years and you can really see the characters developing and growing. This is a TV-show you can really relate to. Laugh and maybe even cry with. All this without the ever so boring audience; "haha" and "awe", like in most of the sitcoms. It will be sad when Scrubs ends. When something great that has been there for several years ends. It's sad and weird. Like the time Friends ended. Or Frasier, Sex in the City. Could go on and on, but I take it you know the drill. Even though it, in the case of TV-shows mentioned above, felt like the world was ending in all of those. I think with Scrubs it really is.

For you that have been living in a cave for last 5 months or so, I suggest to read the Wikipedia article of Scrubs(TV-show), under season 7 and 8) and read the Zach Braff MySpace blog with the Bill Lawrence interview. It really opens your eyes about the situation. I'd like to finish with a quote from that interview:

Quote Bill Lawrence interview, Zach Braff MySpace Blog: "I was under the impression NBC was willing to give you one episode to finish things off. No? Lawrence: Well, here's the thing. When the strike ended, NBC said, "You can shoot an hour-long finale, but we'll only pay for half of it." They wanted (ABC Studios) to suck up all the expenses, and ABC said that was unacceptable. And it felt especially harsh because Scrubs was pulling in better (ratings) than 30 Rock and My Name is Earl — even though I love those two shows — and they were encouraged to do as many f--king episodes as they can after the strike. And after seven years, I ask for three episodes to wrap up the series and they say, "Tough s--t." "
