  • Ignore the new season, my warning to you. This is not Scrubs you know and love.

    2.0
    When I saw the season finale (I wished it was the series finale) I knew if they came back for a new season, it was going to fail. I was correct, sadly. The "new" Scrubs is like Transformers 2 or like Shrek 3. It didn't need to make a new season, but they did and they ruin the series. All the new characters in this show are not memorable or funny. There is one character (you will know if you saw it) that you will hate and not in a good way. You will pray that his character dies soon in a fiery death. He is very unpleasing to see on television. JD, Turk and Dr. Cox can not sustain this show with anymore. When you see these two new episodes, you will see that a lot of what made this show great is gone. No Ted, no Janitor (OH MY GOD!!!) and no Carla. If you want to see Scrubs go back to the old episode, they are a lot better then this.moreless
  • New Scrubs is terrible,totally lost there focus.

    2.5
    I have loved this show since the start ,but this start /change has been a huge disappointment and the 2 shows that aired last nite very the worst ever.This show has ben 1 of the most edge cutting and dramatic new shows to have emerged and had the potential to be the greatest show ever up there with so mant others,but it seems someone had to try to re - write everything not just add improvement. Based on the 2 episodes I watched last nite I would prefer they cancel the show rather than ruin its history and possibly its syndication worth. Thats What Everyone Watches Anyway.THE REAL SCRUBS !!moreless
  • New Scrubs..

    5.0
    Ever since ABC picked up Scrubs, the show has been lacking in quality. Unfortunately, with the recession and all, it is fair to expect networks zip their purses, and reduce cost by making some actors sit at home. But still, I was happy by the awesome way they ended the show - I mean it couldn't be any perfect.



    Well, the new Scrubs is an experiment, if you've watched the videos on ABC where Bill Lawrence and Zach discuss their plans. I personally think, the show shouldn't have been renewed - new name, new stage, new people, whatever be it. In my opinion the show is dead. But still, If you are willing to watch this show as something unconnected to the old one, well, there might be something to it. Otherwise, I can assure you - you will be disappointed. It's a 6 episode experiment. The oldies JD, Turk, Kelso, and Cox will be there for 6 episode. And based on the outcome, they might go ahead with the new cast, or scrap the show all together. I hope the latter happens.moreless
  • JD and Duncan sick their noses in Denise's business with Drew and they get in trouble when their advice goes South. Lucy learns her first lesson in being a doctor and how not to get too close to the patients. Finally Cole is a pain in the neck.moreless

    Second part of the premiere night of Scrubs - Med School. Lucy learns a major lesson when she goes against Dr. Cox specific instructions about a patient. Lucy bonds even more with Dr. Dorian. One character I forgot to mention in my last episode review is Maya played by Nicky Whelan who's got the greatest Australian accent. Of course Perry goes out of his way not to understand a word of her "English" making things difficult for her. Surprisingly she seems not overly phased by this. Even JD gets into the the act with Perry pretending not to understand her.



    Perry continues to call Drew #1. He seems to have taken to it. He and Denise are fine until she tries to "talk" with him at Duncan and JD's advice. Denise has a few choice words for them. Later though Duncan talks to Drew and he ends up asking Denise out for a beer. The ending is classic Scrubs type stuff. In general a lot of weird terms used and bits done by the cast pretty much in the same vein as the first eight seasons.



    Not a bad example of Scrubs. We'll see how people take to it. Personally I don't see a big change to Sacred Heart except for a new building and becoming a teaching hospital. Thanks for reading...moreless
  • My opinion of scrubs season 9

    8.0
    I enjoyed the new scrubs! I think we should give it a chance and yeah sure its not going to be the same but I love scrubs and I felt it was quite good!

    But I will say I think JD needs to be in the show longer for it to succeed.

    Also without the janitor that is a bit tough, I think he was a great sub-plot to the show and will always be remembered(I know he got another role in another show) But overall I think it will be good give it time.

    It has the ability to be good.moreless
