Trivia

The show has some connections to the abbreviation TCW. Donald Faison starred in Remember the Titans (2000), whose high school was TCW. JD later dates a girl whose is called TCW (Tasty Coma Wife) and then it is shown in the episode "My No Good Reason" as being from a school with the initials TCW. 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 »

Scrubs leads to disappointment.
31 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, reading the Summary, you may think that this comment will be negative towards Scrubs. Well, sorry to disappoint, but its not. I love Scrubs. From J.D.'s neuroses, to Elliots insecurities, all the way to Jordan's ice woman exterior and Ted's suicidal tendencies. Scrubs has made television worth watching since 2001.

So, the show itself is not a disappointment. Its when you enter the real world. You see, I myself am a First Year Resident. And my god, life is dull. Sily of me, i know, but i went in, hoping everything will be exactly like Scrubs shows me its gonna be. i expected a Dr. Cox like person, always angry at something but a damn good doctor. i expected Dr Kelso, more worried about money than his patients. i expected a Nurse Espinosa, a caring, feisty mother figure. And i got none of these. NONE. of course, a lot of the show is realistic enough. the different situations that they face are situations that i deal with almost every day. as n example, its fine. But, you cant help feeling, after watching all 4 series of scrubs, that somethings missing. which is why scrubs is the best.

Not only does it show real life medical exploits, but it manages to shroud them in a way that viewers can still relate to, but thats not entirely the hard, naked truth. its ingenious. from watching the series, you get all the little bits, rounds, treating a patient, researching what may be wrong with him/her/it, but all that stuff which manages to look fun really are mundane. so, i get the boring stuff out the way at work, then go home, watch scrubs on DVD, and thats my release. Scrubs is like my life, but a more twisted, conceptual version. and that is why, scrubs is the best. Its very much like the episode with the Comedy Script writer. you come back home from a hard days work of treating people, and scrubs is your release.
