There's a reason there is a new opening credits and it's called Scrubs [med school]. This is an entirely new show. It's like Saved by the Bell: The College Years. A hopeful wish that it would work, but will ultimately fail. I'm a die hard Scrubs fan. I own all the dvd's, I can tell you what season an episode is from depending on Sarah Chalke's hair style, and I have gone as far as having J.D.-esque fantasies some days. But this is not the show I have fallen in love with. The lack of half the major players is depressing. With Zack Braff and Sarah Chalke only in a few episodes I'm afraid after those I'll probably give up on watching.
Only thing I like about this season is Dave Franco. But even with his random words and cocky attidue, I just don't see this show lasting much longer. This episode was ok, but had a totally different feel than the past eight seasons. I want to like this show, but I'm sorry, it should have been left at My Finale.
