Scrubs (season 1)

{5/5} “That’s a great anecdote. You should write it down in your journal. Then your kids can read about it when you’re dead!”

Scrubs season 1, aired in 2001-02

JD, Turk, and Elliot are new doctors at Sacred Heart Hospital. JD and Elliot are medical and Turk is surgical. JD and Turk have been friends for years. JD would like to be more than friends with Elliot. Somehow the janitor becomes JD’s nemesis. No one is happy when their parents show up for a visit.

I thought this show was screamingly funny the first time I saw it, and it’s still funny now. The show is told from JD’s point of view, and he frequently has outrageous fantasies. One of the best is the West Side Story-style song and dance.

Although it’s a comedy, serious issues are discussed — like in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the storyline is funny but the relationships are real. The main characters are trying to be better doctors — and better people.

Stars Zach Braff and Sarah Chalke.

This is my third time watching this season.
