Trivia

In one episode, J.D. daydreams about winning an award at a ceremony hosted by Dr. Cox. When he breaks out of his trance, he smirks and utters to himself "Take that, Tony Shalhoub!" This is a comic reference to the fact that Zach Braff lost his only Primetime Emmy nomination for this show to Shalhoub for his role in Monk (2002), as well as the fact that Shalhoub won a grand total of three Emmys for this role by the end of the show's run.

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 »

Jordan: I don't dislike you, I nothing you.

An Elaborate Comedic Symphony
28 May 2005 | by abutterwSee all my reviews

'Scrubs' is a look at the world through the eyes of an intern. Not some crusty cop or a desperate housewife, but an intern.

An intern with no special abilities or powers. An intern who goes to a hospital.

And somehow, this creates one of the best shows on TV.

J.D.(Zach Braff) is an intern at Sacred Hearts Hospital. He's surrounded by a cynical janitor, a belligerent head M.D., a sarcastic mentor, and a few other interns. Though this all may seem like a familiar and done-before formula, 'Scrubs' makes the whole thing seem fresh, new, and radiant.

The show subtlety examines many major issues (authority complex, race, etc.) without making it seem preachy. To do this well is itself a fantastic achievement.

This show also does something incredible: make actors you may recognize from small parts in movies shine. Zach Braff, John C. McGinley, and so many others.

Worth your time in spades.
