sad and very dramatic episode
scrubs is my favorite show but i think they couldv done better it was sad and off track also it was bad whenever they spend time with him, i just think it couldv been a better episode when dr maddox began the episode i thought this would be an amazing episode if the janitor would do something they shouldv cut out the part with the guy who dies there was to much drama its also so boring why couldnt they do something funny i like the episodes that are comedy not drama i just think it couldv been much bettermoreless
I didn't see much improvement from the last episode, I know I'm not watching Scrubs, when I get emotional at the end of an episode, and even though this episode was trying to be emotional in the end, I just didn't feel it. Although, it was very sad the man died, I didn't feel like I usually do, after watching an emotional episode of Scrubs.
Courtney Cox is in this episode, yet Cox & Elliot aren't? It really didn't make any sense. I finally see the difference between this season and the last season. This season is way to focused on the interns, and it just doesn't work, the fact that they made a "spin off" with this group escapes me. The fear of death is very common, this episode could have been way better, with the emotional scenes not taking, and the narration even getting lazy. I really want the old Scrubs back, lets just hope this season improves. The network change was the biggest mistake on this show.moreless
J.D. and Turk must decide between going out for steak night and spending the night with a dying old man
this episode is everything a great episode of scrubs is and always has been. great music, great writing, extremely funny, but with more heart than any show on the market. it delves quite nicely into the selflessness of both J.D. and Turk by pitting the forces of a fun traditional night on the town against a dying old man. when most other sitcoms would have probably taken the route of having them go out cause it both safe and not depressing scrubs decided on having them stay and take care of the old man, helping him get over his fear ot death, and assuring he wouldn't die alone. and in the end of it all they leave you with a very touching moment to leave you smiling.moreless
Dramatic but still funny
J.D and Turk plan to go on a Steak Night Dinner, but they dont to stay in the hospital with a dying patient.
This episode was rlly funny, and not only that but was great with the drama. The series is amazing, and this ep shows the Comedy - Drama genner. The episode was great, was funny and dramatic. Scrubs Season 8 was awesome, and now with this second ep is amazing. The first episode was amazing, and this episode was even better. I like dramatic shows, and comedy shows. This episode combines both into the episode My Last Words.moreless
This is more like it. A very dramatic but still charming episode.
The first episode of the season felt a little off and the comedy just okay, this however is a completely different prospect. Firstly it involves death of a patient and there have been some very good episodes of Scrubs centred around this subject matter. Secondly it has Mayor Royce from The Wire (possibly one of the best character based shows on television) as the dieing man and he hts it perfectly. Thirdly, you get to know the interns - well two in particular.
Although this is a more dramatic episode it has some fantastic comedy. Like J.D. hating the popular new intern and in particular the fantastic notion that, when dead, one of the characters could end up like rowdy. That in particular was one of the best delusions J.D. has ever had. The discussions about death may be too much for some but I found them interesting and each character didn't act out of character with their responses. Glynn Turman did a fantastic job as the dieing George who just wanted his last beer. Turk and J.D connected so well with him saving him from the intern with an abusive streak toward fat men (this by the way is an intersting intern to feature although it can leave you a little uncomfortable).
If the season continues to this quality then I'm going to be happy, a definite must watch episode of Scrubs.moreless
No no, not Dr Cox, Courtney Cox. She's just plain not funny and is nothing but a name. She's not even that good of an actor, I feel like im watching Monica Gheller try and be a chief of medicine. I'm sure there had to be plenty more qualified actors out there for ABC to pick. She's at the end of her game. When you hire a "Star" to play a role in your show, check to make sure she doesnt have any other series that were canned after only a short run. I really hope this does not last.moreless
They somehow manage to deliver something extremely funny and serious at the same time.
That is an example of good old scrubs fashion.
What a relief after, let's face it, not so quite good last season.
Scrubs-style-straight jokes at the start, egzistencial issues at the end, followed by perfect song (it's like that song was composed speciaslly for the episode).
I strongly believe, that this is exactly, why the Scrubs attract their real fans (like me).
After such a long pause, you only need a few (or even one) episodes to totally recall all these "perfectly perfected" characters. This episode really exposes all major attributes of good old JD (he continues to believe, that it is somehow possible to become buddies with dr Cox, which, in his way, continues to make fun of JD, leaving allusion to actual respect for him), Carla straightly tells Elliot her negative twists, later firstly denies that, but, just as we expect, at the end admits.
All in all - great episode for people, who loves the show from first episodes.moreless
Those waiting for an improvement on the last episode will be sorely disappointed.
The first episode of this season contained very little in the way of JD/ Turk interaction. In this episode the writers seemingly attempted to redress the balance by making the entire episode based on their interation and forcing them to interact with a dying patient. Sadly this meant no Dr Cox, Elliot, Todd, Janitor or Kelso, which makes this episode very sparse indeed. One of Scrubs stengths was its ability to weave together the stories of the different cast members. Carla appears only in a fantasy, Jordan is there for no particular reason (at one point she says she has forgotten she has kids. The writers seems to have forgotten the children in this series too as they are rarely refered to.)Dr Maddox is also there for no particular reason and her fleeting appearance barely justifies a guest role.Instead the only characters focused on aside form JD and Turk are Ted and two of the new interns, one who is abrasive and insensitive and another who is a trendsetter. (Where have we seen those characteristics before?)This may be a ploy to launch a new season without JD, but frankly the way this show is going, a new season is looking less and less likely.The patient-plot is drawn out, depressing and vey one note. This episode made me really worried about this season. The writing was lazy (Dr Maddox can zone in on a person's greatest insecurity-where have we heard that before?), the story is unengaging and for the first time ever, I was waiting for the episode to be over. Here's hoping the next episode is a big improvement.moreless
Another great episode worthy of the Scrubs of old.
This second episode of the season certainly did not disappoint. Lots of dark humour, poignant and funny moments. Tackling the subject of death is always difficult and this episode of Scrubs did it really well. It was great to see JD and Turk's relationship is just as it always was. Jordan had a few funny lines though there was no sign of Dr Cox this week. The Janitor was missing too, hopefully he'll be back soon. Denise (Jo) is working quite well for me, there was a funny moment when she invited the chubby guy to the on-call room. I am so glad that Scrubs is delivering the goods.moreless
Saddest Episode Ever!!
The first two episodes to the new season have made up for the horrific ending to season 7. The new season feels new and different in a way but in a really good way! I like what they have done with the credits at the end of each episode. You have to agree, the end credits with JD and Turk would have been worth watching, if that had been all the episode had to offer. Lucky enough the episode had so much to offer and in a way this episode touch my heart in many different ways and I'm so glad a show like scrubs (which you normally watch to get a good laugh out of) can make you respect it for it's drama.
I am too, afraid of death.moreless
