Where to begin?
14 December 2009 | by shreke2003See all my reviews

I pride myself to be in the top 1000 biggest scrubs fan, having re-watched the show countless times, finding new meanings to jokes or letting them have the same effect on me. When the series supposedly ended i was heartbroken, but happy that they ended on such a high note. That was eight months ago, then this. I cant say whether i'm happy or sad, maybe both. Happy that i get to see J.D. and Dr. Cox back at it, but disappointed with the disappearance of the janitor, and the introduction of interns who seem flaccid and fake compared to the original characters. I wish that they'd branched out, maybe making another hospital show without the name of scrubs and left us our memory's of the best show I've ever seen. Thats not to say that maybe this won't get better, but i cant imagine scrubs without a janitor, a nurse Espinosa, and all the other cast members that made it work.
