  • Turk and J.D relationship was strained, when Turk finds out that J.D has gone to Disneyland without him.

    9.0
    The episode was good, briliant even. Even with J.D, Dr. Cox, Janitor, Dr Kelso and Carla the rest filled for certain. And Turk's reaction after finding out that J.D has gone to disneyland without was so damn fricking funny, that i had to watch that a bit several times before carrying on with the episode.



    But the main focus of the episode was the interns, and how hard the show is trying to put the interns as likeable as the rest of the cast. They're not bad Dr. Mahoney is okay, Sonny is just as good and that small blonde has been a bit quiet of late. But the two male interns are doing it for me, the novalty of of the weird one is wearing off and wearng off fast. And the black intern is 2-D and plain, you can only have one Christopher Turk.



    I believe that Elliot is starting to begin a long sotry line whichs sees her leaving Sacred Heart at the end of the series (possible the show).



    But overall, the episode was good and once again that Disneyland joke, priceless.moreless
  • Probably my least favourite episode this season.

    7.5
    I love Scrubs but this episode had none of my favourite characters in it and a whole episode of the interns just doesn't do it for me. There were a few nice moments but not enough of the clever witty writing I have come to expect from the show. This season was a vast improvement on the previous 2 but this episode was nowhere near as good. I hope that this is put right for the remainder of the season as I woulkd hate to think that it would end on such a downer. Definitely not my favourite episode so far.moreless
  • A very revealing episode...

    9.0
    Sure this episode had it's fair share of laughs, but it was realistic. It shows what doctors go though. This episode definitely had it's moments, which makes it a very special episode, well at least for me. Turk and Elliot acted really well in this episode, especially Elliot at the end. This was definitely one of my favorite parts of the whole season because it's raw and revealing and very honest. I think that this is a very well put and special episode, sure it's different than other episodes, but it doesn't make it bad does it? I watched the end with Elliot's narration about five times, i think this puts into perspective how much i liked this episode :)moreless
  • Not very Scrubs. Upsetting, but not horrible

    6.0
    Scrubs would have to be my fave tv show of all time and so that clouds my judgement of the episode some what. I really like the characters of Elliot and turk and this episode was really quite nicely put together and some really nice storylines, but it really wasn't a scrubs episode. I mean a whole episode without JD (Zach Braff) What the...? Thats just not scrubs. I was just watching some repeats and realised that in this episode we did not hear JD's voice once, (first episode ever.. i think). In My Absence although JD wasn't there they still had his voiceover. There was no other character interactions either, because there were no other characters. I like the new interns but im sick of watching them, i watch Scrubs to see whats going on with the main characters.

    Oh and By the way as if JD would go to disneyland without Turk? Im just hoping the next couple of episodes are why better because i would hate the show to end with episode excluding JD.moreless
  • What a great episode! It was really refreshing to see the dynamic between Turk and Elliot. It was also refreshing to see their mutual love for JD in action.

    9.5
    What a great episode! It was really refreshing to see the dynamic between Turk and Elliot. It was also refreshing to see their mutual love for JD in action. But something that was really special about this episode was what happened with Elliot. I love her character very much, but I've always had a hard time taking her seriously. Something that really stood out for me was how they opened her up and I felt I was actually able to relate to her, probably for the first time in the series. The way she talked about leaving the hospital to start a family seemed like the first real "Elliot" moment for me.



    I mean, the closest we've had to a moment like that with Elliot was "My Fishbowl", and even then Elliot's story seemed cliché and slightly contrived, (Chalke's acting was great, but the story seemed forced). But to me this ending was real and genuine. I hope this is some sort of set up for the series finale, I really want JD and Elliot to settle down together in the end :D
