A Reprieve For A Show That's Lost It's Mojo...
For a few years, Scrubs was the funniest show on TV.
Great characters, good storylines, funny when it needed to be, serious when it needed to be.
Lately, the show has unfortunately fallen into that slump that so many good comedies fall into. The jokes seem forced, and the storylines are a little boring.
Last week, they did an episode where J.D. (the main character) broke up with his girlfriend because she didn't laugh, but instead said "That's funny".
Those of you without lives probably know that they lifted this idea directly from an episode of Seinfeld. Not good.
Hopefully, they'll get their shit together before the show is cancelled.
In the meantime, the first season is excellent. If you rent it, be sure to check out the episode entitled "My Old Lady". This one could very easily get the tears flowing. It did for me.
So, check out the first season of Scrubs, this week's Donnybrook DVD recommendation...
