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 »

Best...Comedy...Ever
9 July 2004 | by (Värnamo - Sweden) – See all my reviews

I can't give this program a rating that truly portrays its greatness.

Set in Sacred Heart hospital it follows the fledgling careers of a group of interns. A brief intro of the characters

JD - Geeky Dr and our hero. Elliot - Sexy but neurotic. Dr Turk - Cocky, confident surgeon. Todd - Sex obsessed frat boy surgeon. Carla - Ghetto know it all bossy nurse. Dr Cox - JD's Mentor with a slight hint of sacrcasm in his nature. Dr Kelso - Satans mentor. Janitor - Stalker

I have never laughed so much at a TV Comedy, and with so many humorous characters, ranging from mean Dr Kelso, sarcasm king Dr Cox and the just plain psychotic Janitor. If you haven't seen it, I implore you, Beg steal or borrow an episode or two, and if you aren't hooked then I guess you've already had your funny bone removed.
