I'm No Superman

Scrubs is in it's 5th season. Seems like just last year I was watching the premier - I thought it was a pretty good show when I first saw it. I watched bits and pieces of season 1, but never got totally hooked. The time slot at the time may have not lined up, or I may have just forgotten about it, but 4 years later (read: this year), and I've rediscovered it. Now I'm hooked.

Don't get me wrong - you wont be seeing weekly recaps and reviews of Scrubs here, as good as it is, Scrubs still plays second fiddle to Lost in my book. But, the point of this is: I am now absolutely hooked. I've downloaded seasons 1-4 and season 5 up to last week. I'm gonna watch 'em straight through.

I watched the first episode yesterday from about 4:30 to 4:52 and realized how easy it's gonna be to get through the season. At 21-22 minutes per episode (without commercials), I can squeeze them in anywhere. Maybe I'll start watching one episode in the morning and one at night... or set aside 2-hour/6-ep blocks... or hell, I could spend this weekend on a Scrubs bender. Possibilities = endless. It's a great show, watch it if you don't already. Tuesdays at 9:00 (repeats usually at 8:30) on NBC.

Teh office is almost as good
bean (April 20, 2006 at 09:58:58 AM):
I think the office is overrated, which is saying a lot because it doesnt have very good ratings.

Scrubs has a lot of random humor in it, but hasn't quite gone the way of 'Family Guy', which has taken some critisism for being pretty much nothing BUT random humor.
bigD (April 20, 2006 at 10:02:58 AM):
I can't speak to it's over/under ratedness because I don't know nuthin' bout no ratings.

I just know it's one funny sumbitch.

Also, Sarah Chalke is [highpitchvoice] sooooo hot [/highpitchvoice]

Is that the chick that was the replacement older sister on Rosanne?

Scrubs is the shiz-nite!

that is all.
conley1 (April 20, 2006 at 02:17:00 PM):
yup Stef, Sarah Chalke was the replacement older sister on Roseanne while the older sister went to college....

it can be a pretty stupid show at times though.... Zach Braff's character (JD) does hook up with some pretty hot tail on the show though
bean (April 20, 2006 at 03:03:38 PM):
just goes to show ya... chicks dig the doctors.
bean (April 21, 2006 at 09:02:09 AM):
Watched 6-7 s1 eps of Scrubs last night. Quality material. I look forward to finishing s1 this weekend.
conley1 (April 21, 2006 at 09:07:17 AM):
Or it just goes to show you that it's Hollywood, and they'd rather have hotties than notties show up on screen...
Jewfish (April 21, 2006 at 11:14:33 AM):
I think one of the things I'm enjoying the most about the current season of scrubs is that they keep talking about other medical TV shows on other channels.

Like when Kelso told Dr. Cox that he's like House without the limp.

bean (April 21, 2006 at 11:18:39 AM):
And they mentioned that Grey's Anatomy was telling THEIR work stories.
foo (April 21, 2006 at 04:08:02 PM):
haven't watched it but i do like that older dr. from office space.

also, know that you have influenced me to start recording lost and watching it. bleach tells me you have many seasons of lost on disk. can i get my mitts on them?
bean (April 23, 2006 at 08:20:38 PM):
B-Rad has most of s2 on DVDs, and he had the s1 box set (borrowed). I could probably hook you up if you need - email me.
