By the lofty standards of Scrubs, this was rubbish.
I know, I know, but it was rather painful to watch very little of what we love stand up and be counted. All the main characters were there in action, but the energy and freshness was missing.
The one good joke in this episode was JD on Sports Center : "and it only hurts a LITTLE bit". Classic.
But the rest of it tanked.
How on earth could they possibly ruin a Cox-Jordan segment?! But they conspired to do so and did.
Janitor's love problems were sorely out of character and lacked his inherent hilarity.
Man - even Kelso had no storming lines. What happened to the genius of such lines like "my weasel's having a heat stroke"?!
Scrubs is falling over itself, and although one episode is too much to declare a downturn on, there is definitely a hint of recession about the joke quality of this episode. Dig deep people - or else this could be the beginning of the end.
