  • The beginning of one of the best shows ever - and what a wonderful beginning.

    It's JD's first day in Sacred Heart Hospital and they are more difficult than he has imagined. He has to face his own fear of hurting his patients, a ranting new boss who seems to be very mean, a nice new boss who turns out to be mean, a hyper-competetie collegue with whom he falls in love with, a best friend who wants to "branch out a little", a nurse who calls him Bambi and some other very disturbing characters (including an annoyed nurse, a very crazy lawyer and the hospital's janitor)

    This first episode of Scrubs is the fantastic and funny beginning to a wonderful series. The jokes, the dynamic, the sounds and the stories in this episode are just great. Although this episode is almost seven years old and has some things that are now different (Elliot being this competitive, Kelso trying to play nice, the hospital, the many, many sounds and the line at the end, which I would have kept) the characters and basic stories are already there and as funny as they will be in the years to come (Ted, Cox ranting, JD and Turk's friendship and so many more)
