Just When You Get Used to The Same Old Routine...
9 July 2006 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

I am in awe.

I just finished this episode and I had to watch it a second time. It reminds me of the movie The Usual Suspects. You are in such shock that you have to watch it a second time to see it from the real perspective that you may have missed the first time around.

Sure, I caught what I had missed the first time and understood what I was supposed to see the 2nd time that I just didn't realize the first time. Truth is the first time the tears that flew from my eyes were out of shock, the 2nd time I was prepared and they flew just as much.

I have been watching the Scrubs DVDs in order so Season 3 brings us Episode 60, which is a landmark for Scrubs because for one of the few times the laughter turns to reality and it hurts, but it hurts in a way that makes you appreciate the show more than you did for the laughs before.

My cousin is a young doctor, and after watching Season 2 I called him and asked him what he thought of Scrubs as a series. He told me it was his favorite doctor show. Not because it is a comedy, but because it is more realistic than any serious doctor show he has ever seen. He told me ER has nothing on this show because it can be so realistic.

Episode 60 crossed the line and let us know this series can also make you think.
