This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together.
Scrubs: Med School?!!? Wow! I wouldn't call myself a huge fan of the "original" Scrubs,... but it sure did offer some laughs and fun. So far,... I cannot say the same about Scrubs: Med School. After cancellations and renewals and cancellations,... ABC has decided to resuscitate Scrubs - with massive changes. Even ABC's ad for this said, "Scrubs -- the only thing that is the same,... is the name." The formulaic style and some faces remain the same,... but most everything else is different - in a bad way. Many faces are new, it's a different setting, there's a different theme song version, it has a different cinematographic look, the familiar characters have different roles and original Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence has departed. Regarding the original castmembers, it appears that only Dr. Turk (Donald Faison), Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) and Dr. Kelso (Ken Jenkins) will be regulars,... with the other familiars (JD, Elliot, The Janitor, Carla) only guest-spotting. The new faces follow the same formula, often seeming as clear-cut replacements,... but the new cast is not as funny or charismatic. The original's bad qualities have carried over, as well; repetitive stories, annoying characters, juvenile jokes and that dumb 'bathroom' voice-over. I wanted to give it a chance,... but this new incarnation of Scrubs does not seem like it will do well OR last long. So,... have they either created a weak spin-off.... or ruined a fan-fave show? We'll see, by season's end. I am only watching it to see the final departure of JD. Wanna laugh at or enjoy Scrubs? Watch reruns.
