  • All the love for My Finale can be attributed to Part 2. Part 1 on its own is a pretty weak half hour. It did its job setting up Part 2, but it won't come off nearly as well in syndication.moreless

    5.0
    Taking Part 1 as its own episode, I can only rate it average at best. I was disappointed that a show I loved was once again going to get a mediocre finale while I was watching the first half. Don't get me wrong: Part 2 completely blew my socks off, and made it one of if not the most satisfying finale's I've ever seen. If I were rating this as one hour-long episode, I would give it 9+. But looking at Part 1 in a vacuum, it's plodding and not all that entertaining. Granted, it really wasn't written to stand on its own, but it's going to be shown that way in syndication. They could have spruced it up a bit for that reason.moreless
  • Series finale, part one.

    8.0
    This honestly felt like any other episode, well part one did anyway, JD's leaving and he expects a goodbye from everyone. The only really funny scene is when JD turns off all the lights in the hospital in a fantasy, other than that, we got some flashbacks of his first day, and some heartfelt goodbye's, not all but some.



    Turk's goodbye was hilarious, and of course heartwarming. Kelso decides not going back to work and leaves with his favorite table at the coffee shop after hanging around there all season. Cox can't say goodbye to JD, it's just a "day." That part was heartbreaking for JD and myself.



    Other than that, this episode was just setup for the rest of the series finale: part two. It was entertaining though. I'll give it that.moreless
  • Pure amazing.

    8.5
    Simply one of the best shows ever. Even if it was lacking that funny humor JD has given us for the first few seasons. Scrubs went out with a bang, and I honestly can say I would have not had it any other way. Perfect end to and incredible 8 years. Scrubs, there are so many moments of which I can look back on and just grin. I've heard that the show is coming back for a next generation type spin-off, doesn't sound too great too me seeing as I...yes...almost cried at the end of the series finale, but this is also a good chance to see what Bill Lawrence has left in him besides making a new series about something much more different.



    But I will watch the first few episodes and see what there is too offer.moreless
  • J.D's last day at Sacred Heart (Part 1)

    9.5
    Part 1 is entertaining. It shows us the ups and downs of having a last day much like thye did when showing J.D's first day. It shows us the quirks we get on our last day, the things we ask ourselves: Who will say goodbye? Will anyone miss me? and even a little bit of Will anybody care when I'm gone? It shows us that our friends are always caring and that some people can't say goodbye. It shows us that even on our last day we can't avoid bad news and that even our job will go on after we leave. While it's not an equal to Part 2, Part 1 of this finale gets the ball rolling down to a great, smashing conclusion.moreless
  • You came, we saw, we loved. Now we miss. With loving memories.

    10
    Does it suck? I think folks you know the answer to that one. But more than just losing a show we look forward everyweek to bring some source of joy, we know have to accept that its gone, and that there are many shows on now that just aren't gonna cut it. Like it or not, we now have to find another source of escape. Sadly, we bid goodbye to this show much in the good vein JD n Cox did when brendan frasiers characther died - in loving memory. Take care folks, its been fun going on the scrubs ride. To the producers/actors of scrubs (if by any chance you're reading) thanks for the good times. We'll miss you.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When J.D. gives Dr. Cox the "Book of Rants" and Dr. Cox asks him where to look up any specific rant, J.D. replies with "you go to the glossary..." This statement is incorrect, because a glossary is where to look up the definitions of words used in the book. J.D. should have directed him to the index of the book.

    • Look closely; the penny that the Janitor claims to be the one that J.D. put in the door on his first day is stamped with the year 2006. J.D.'s first day was in 2001.

    • Featured Music:
      "Snow (Hey Oh)" by Red Hot Chili Peppers (Opening scene)
