Show Summary

This half-hour comedy focuses on the bizarre experiences of fresh-faced medical intern John "J.D." Dorian (Zach Braff) as he embarks on his healing career in a surreal hospital crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients – where humor and tragedy can merge paths at any time.

Joining the rumpled J.D. in his exhilarating brave new world are his college buddy, Chris Turk (Donald Faison, "Clueless"), an intern with a more elite surgical group, and J.D.'s fellow medical intern, the beautiful and driven Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke, "Roseanne"). Keeping the new interns on their toes are: The fatherly chief of medicine, Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins); the abrasive, worldly Dr. Perry Cox (John McGinley), and the caring but slightly jaded nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes). The hospital janitor (Neil Flynn) also never seems to miss an opportunity to harass his target.

Scrubs is filmed in a real-life hospital. It's the North Hollywood Medical Center, which has gone under severe reconstruction to fit all the equipment and represent Sacred Heart Hospital.

  • mini-me's are adorable

    the spirit of scrubs are continued well with this group of second generation doctors. even though . isn't there anymore, Lucy's filling in for him well. also, cox's can't decide on Drew or I clumped them into the "Cox and Jordan" folder
  • meh. . .OK but very simplistic writing and humour.

    6.0
    JD is an arsehole, a pathetic; insensitive; petty jerk, actually quite dumb and very self centered but no one on the show seems to recognize it or have the attention span to hold him accountable for any notable length of time.



    The whole teen angst thing with Eliot was awful. You kind of have to be a terrible person to 'be in love' with a person but start relationships with other people under the guise of it being 'real' but actually it being for sexual reasons. The really messed up thing is that virtually every one of JD's relationships were about him leading women on while Eliot was unavailable yet apparently he one of 'the good guys'?



    At the end of the day pretty much all the characters were 'Hollywood' caricatures of people -they behave in ways that feeds into the 'Hollywood' image of 'people' rather than reality or believability.



    And WTH is up with female domination and male submission on this show? There is NO notable male character that is not dominated by a female.



    In all honesty I realize I'm expecting way too much from Scrubs -it is basically a slapstick dramedy after all but somehow that doesn't lessen the feeling that the shows 'simplistic' nature is kind of insulting, at least to me.moreless

    I got a few kicks out of this show but I just could`nt really like it like a huge fan. Still, I`d recommend it to some people.

  • Where have you gone?

    2.0
    Scrubs was one of my favorite shows to watch. I didn't even mind all the reruns.

    Now, you don't even get to see those. How could such a funny entertaining show just vanish?

    NBC has officially ditched its long-running Must-See TV lineup, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate the great shows it produced.

    If we didn't know it before, we'd better know it now: Jane Kerkovich-Williams is one of the best characters on TV.
