Does anyone remember when this show used to have jokes?
Imagine that everybody involved with the making of Scrubs had tragically died, and they gave the job of reconstructing it to a guy who had once seen about half an episode out of the corner of his eye across an airport lobby, on mute. That is what this episode is like.
The new characters all talk as if the makers of the show are worried that old fans might tune in and be confused. Therefore every single utterance has to express the totality of their character. Luckily, this is easy as they are all one-dimensional caricatures not allowed to grow into their own due to the inexplicable continuing presence of (only some of) the original cast, like so many hovering farts.
If you didn't like Scrubs before, then you won't warm to it now. If you did, it is like watching the zombified corpse of a loved one stumble around aimlessly. For the most part it is unrecognisable as the person you once knew, but the true horror comes in the moments where it evinces a superficial resemblance to what it once was.moreless
Elliot is close to having her baby and JD is worried that they won't have any time together after the baby is born. Lucy knew the man that is her teams cadaver and she is having problems with that. Perry has to write a will and he is having a crisis.
An entertaining episode like much of the Scrubs shows. This one returns a little to the manic phase of being all over the place after a few episodes with solid storylines.
Here we are dealing with JD and Elliot and the fear that they won't have sex or spend any time together once the baby comes. Then we have Lucy who has never cut into her teams cadaver. The problem is that each of the four team members must dissect a section of the heart. She is still dealing with the fact she knew the man before he died and she really liked him. Finally Perry's significant other played by Christa Miller-Lawrence who most recently can be seen as Ellie Torres on Cougar Town wants him to write a will and leave everything to her. He ends up having a personal crisis about this and even speaks to Denise and then JD about it. This episode sort of jumps around a lot like a number of the early Scrubs episodes where JD has his little visions of things and characters do unexpected things out of nowhere.
Entertaining and fun to watch. I'm still liking most of the med school characters especially the three main ones. Even Cole a little bit now. Thanks for reading...moreless
