In My Opinion The Best Scrubs Episode Ever...
8 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some classic scrubs fans may not like this episode as it is much less light-hearted; however I absolutely loved it. Michael J. Fox's (Dr. Kevin Casey) performance was very powerful. Although the episode was rather depressing I enjoyed it much more. The performances of Zach Braff (J.D.) and John C. McGinley (Dr. Perry Cox) were excellent as always bringing a sense of comedy to a much more serious plot than usual. Although the main storyline was quite depressing the side story was very entertaining, it involved the janitor (Neil Flynn) and his new assistant Randall (Martin Klebba) in a hilarious battle with Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins) to hide the hospitals rubbish for the princely sum of $23 extra a month.
