  • JD's evaluation.

    7.3
    I have to give this episode something, plot development. We see a lot of it in this episode. The plot starts off with JD & Turk going to a strip club, only to find the news crew there, once their interviewed by the newsgirl, Turk gets all the publicity because he's a black doctor. The plot that really stood out was JD's evaluation. Cox is supposed to evaluate him, but he assigns JD to evaluate himself, he orders back Cox to do it. Cox's speech to JD was heart-warming. "Stop worrying on what people think of you... You don't have to answer to Kelso, to me..." Such a great speech, and in the end Cox gives a special mention about JD to the board about what a great doctor he is. Cox is probably the most developed on this show so far. Elliot wants to spend some time with Carla and her friend. But Carla tricks Elliot not to go, so she can spend some alone time with her friend. Only one problem: Eliot bumps in to both of them at the bar. Some funny moments: In which Elliot takes a night out on the town, two seconds after being outside, she runs back in the taxi. Hilarious, really broke the "throw your hat in the air" cliche. Then with the all the diversity posters and how JD was on the college brochure twice for diversity. Genius. Everything is resolved in the end, and I can see JD improving like Cox said. A good episode.

    Amazing episode! What else is there to say? JD and Turk go to lunch at a strip club and end up sacing a TV cameraman. They then become local heroes. While JD embraces it, Turk finds all the attention uncomfortable. The jokes were hilarious, Carla wasn't annoying (i do like her character, but she has her annoying moments sometimes. They all do! But in Season 1 it was just mainly her, while other people annoyed me in later Seasons at time). I really like how she talked to Elliot. The friendship between JD, Turk, Elliot and Carla delevops more every episode. JD struggling to get his intern evauation (sp) done was great too. I liked the ending, since it showed that Doc Cox cares about JD in his own special way
  • Yet another amazing episode.

    This episode was really good first of all was when JD and Turk save a guy from something that was going on with him, so Kelso decides to use all the publicity in order to get the hospital get more patients and tells this idea to JD who disagrees but thanks to the idea that he is going to get a lot of chicks he decides to accept whatever Kelso says, but later Turk discovers that he is being used just because he is black and later tells this to JD, but later both of them decide that they are OK with each other and that makes them feel really good despite the things. Meanwhile, Cox asigns JD to write his own evaluation, but later JD gets himself angry and tells Cox to evaluate him just because Cox is really lazy and that because of that Cox does not wants to help him and evaluate him, but later when JD finally pushes Cox in doing his evaluation, he discovers that Cox have a really good reason for not doing it, and that makes JD to feel really bad about himself and about what he really thinks of himself. And later, Carla invites Elliot to a dinner but later lets her down and makes her feel bad. This episode was a really great episode!

After aving a talk with Dr.Kelso about it he agrees to take them after (after Turk theatened to sue of corse). Elliot is supposed to go out to lunch with Carla and a friend when Carla says her mother called and she has to go. Elliot goes to a bar herself and meets Carla there, upsetting Elliot greatly. Carla feels bad about what she does and apoligizes to Elliot. Elliot finally feels like she fits in with a group and is happy. A great episode dealing with friendship and racism.

    This episode is hilarious, especially the signs and posters of Turk such as "Time to get an EKG, G" and the episode also has one of my favourite Janitor torments where he "thinks" that JD stole something from his cleaning supplies. The episode therefore also has one of my favourite endings:

    Janitor: Well, well, well, look what magically found it's way back!
    JD: Window cleaner?
    Janitor: No, this is ammonia. The window cleaner is... (looks around)... why?
    That's just bad luck

    The intern evaluations was a great plot combination and there is not one unfunny scene in the whole episode. It's also good to see that JD and Turk get their fifteen minutes, even if Turk isn't too into the whole thing.
