Just wanted to start the last thread on this show. I watched the finale and thought it was well done but man, did NBC downplay this being the finale the past few weeks.

Scrubs was always one of my favorite shows and made me laugh. I look forward to watching it in syndication for many years to come.

Season Finale High Five!

All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Um, I don't watch Scrubs, but even I knew that this wasn't it for the show. It's going to air on ABC in the fall. (nationalledger.com)

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

great episode even though technically "waste of time" was actually the last episode. NBC aired "princess" out of production order, as made obvious by the incongruity of Dr Keslo having already retired in previously aired episodes.
I am personally stoked that ABC is picking up Scrubs, at least to flesh out season 7. it's the best show on tv (equal to the brilliance that was "Arrested Development")
given the combination of writing,direction and acting.
In the same way that MASH combined comedy, drama and commentary on the worlds affairs, Scrubs is a modern classic.

I can't believe there are going to be more episodes. It's hard to get much flimsier than this one. What a bad show this has become. Zach Braff has totally deteriorated into a mugging, preening, intolerable clown.

Really? I had no idea. I guess that is why NBC downplayed this show this past season. Good to know.

And Texas Kelly, if you don't watch Scrubs, why are you in the Scrubs thread? Seems an odd place to be for someone who doesn't watch the show.

I'm pretty much right there with you. Plus, the show's so innaccurate that I'm not sure the writers have ever even been inside a hospital before. But there are just enough unresolved story beats - the Janitor's history and Dr. Cox as head of the hospital, as we all knew he one day would be - that I keep watching hoping for some resolution.

Sometimes I think that the Janitor is the only true reason I keep watching.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

Who is Conan O'Brien? And why is she so sad?

And that's different from old episodes, how? I only really picked up watching Scrubs in the past few months, so I've been catching syndicated repeats in between new season episodes, and Zach's portrayal really didn't change all that much, that I could see, throughout the series.

This show is better if you don't watch it regularly, because every episode is pretty much the same.

Justin, was it you who described the show as an annoying corpse? That's a fairly apt description, I would say.

I have to say, has there been a sitcom in recent memory where people either love it or hate it as much as Scrubs? Even among my friends, you are either a huge fan or a huge distractor. I am a fan, but even I have notice a drop off this past season. But I always expect a drop off from most, not all, shows when they have been around for a while.

I am glad it will be back. There are a ton of unanswered questions (Why does Dr. Cox hate Hugh Jackman, what is the Janitor's name and deal, etc.) that as a fan I would like answred.

I have to agree with the previous poster that said basically "Deteriorated? He's always been like this." I was a late comer to Scrubs, got coaxed by my brother into watching the stuff on Comedy Central a year and a half back or so. And I've never once been able to stand Braff/JD, yet find pretty much everyone else funny. Kelso and Janitor bring it home for me, while Cox is Mr. Reliable. But JD? Thank god he's a fictional character in a fictional world. Between this and Garden State I begin to wonder about the preening egotism of Zach Braff. When he blatantly threw in a friggin' "EAGLE!" in one of these latest episodes I wanted to punch something.

I think it was misleading and confusing of NBC to bill the show as the "Scrubs Finale" when it was not. I had heard the ABC rumors but wasn't sure when I watched if this was it or not.

I've always liked the healthy mix Scrubs has between real scenes and fantasy scenes, but it seems lately they are getting wackier and crazier.

I hope the real finale is better than this Princess episode.

But what is NBC supposed to do? Advertise that the series is moving to a competitor? Not promote it as a special episode to try to draw ratings? I didn't pay attention to the promotion, so I don't know, but if they called it a "series finale" then, yes, that's a little icky. But if they just said "finale" then I think that's a safe ground for them.

I think syndication dulls the decline when you see it all at once mixed and matched. Starting around season 4 or 5, perhaps not coincidentally around the same time Garden State came out, things started to go downhill. It was then that he started mugging even more ferociously and talking in that fucking baby voice all the time, and his whole character became acting feminine and homoerotic. Baby voice = hilarity, monotone voice = serious sincere seriousness and sincerity.

Over the last two years he's especially fallen off a cliff. As has the show. I don't know why this particular TV show's decline bugs me so much, but I think it's because the extra-cartoony lameness from seasons 5-7 just clashes so nauseatingly hard with the profound profundity to touch your heart. The "hospitals are serious business!" heart-tugs can't possibly resonate when they come in such a corny world populated by increasingly broad and unlikeable caricatures.

Turk's baby's birth, when JD got an actual marching band involved, was a threshold in terms of the insanity leaving JD's fantasies and becoming reality. I still don't understand what they were going for with that. And as a result season 6 was such a low point for the show. It felt like they had run out of ideas but they didn't want to go to the end-game type stuff, which they were saving for this season. Things finally picked up slightly at the end of season 6, and this season hasn't been quite so bad, comparitively, though it doesn't compare to early seasons. Most shows that have been around this long tend to lose their way at some point, but if they are lucky they will find it back.

I like to subscribe to the theory that JD has slowly gone nuts over the years as his fantasy world has increasingly merged into his reality. I quietly hope that the finale reveals that for the last few years, JD has been a patient in the psychiatric ward and completely in denial/unaware of his actual state.

I missed this show until Sunday when I heard they were doing a mini marathon. I got a copy of the pilot, watched it in the morning, then watched the next three episodes in a row.
