The sitcom may be flatlining, but as long as there are fresh and original series like Scrubs, the prognosis isn't entirely negative. Created by Bill Lawrence, Scrubs is an interns'-eye view of hospital life and the torturous, tragic, and triumphant route to becoming a doctor. The eminently likeable Zach Braff heads the cast as "newbie" J.D., whose years of medical school haven't quite prepared him for chaotic Sacred Heart Hospital. Family Guy has nothing on the live-action Scrubs when it comes to surreal asides and fantasy sequences (for example, J.D. literally becomes the proverbial deer in the headlights when he cannot answer a medical query), pop culture references, and TV Land casting (John Ritter guest stars as J.D.'s negligent father in "My Old Man," and St. Elsewhere veterans William Daniels, Ed Begley, Jr., Stephen Furst, and Eric Laneuville appear as Legionnaire's-stricken doctors in "My Sacrifical Clam"). With surgical precision, this inaugural season charts J.D.'s growth as a doctor and a human being, and the close-knit bonds he forms with his equally overwhelmed peers and colleagues, including best friend and surgeon Chris Turk (Donald Faison), beautiful, but raw-nerved and by-the-book Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke), and supportive nurse Carla Espinoza (Judy Reyes'), who affectionately nicknames J.D. "Bambi." But at the heart of the series is J.D.'s relationship with his mentor, Dr. Cox (an Emmy-worthy John C. McGinley), a cross between Obi-Wan Kenobi and a pit bull. Giving Scrubs a further shot of adrenaline are recurring characters Jordan (Christa Miller Lawrence), Dr. Cox's satanic ex-wife, and Neil Flynn as the Janitor, who torments J.D. just as Larry Miller menaced Jerry in the Seinfeld episode "The Doorman."
Scrubs' animated sensibility allows for inexplicable cameos by Jimmie Walker or, at one point, an impromptu West Side Story-esque dance-off to convey the schism between the surgeons and other doctors. But while hilariously funny, Scrubs, too, can break your heart, as in the two-parter "My Occurrence"/"My Hero," with guest star Brendan Fraser as Jordan's spontaneously spirited brother, who is diagnosed with leukemia, and "My Old Lady," in which J.D., Elliot, and Chris experience for the first time losing a patient. Scrubs is one of NBC's few remaining "Must-See" series, but it has not been well-served by the network. Whether you're a "newbie" or devoted viewer, this DVD release is just what the doctor ordered. --Donald Liebenson

Customer Review of Scrubs - The Complete First Season
Ok, I've seen maybe one or two episodes before the DVD came out, because I'm either not home, or not watching TV when this show is on. The two episodes that I did watch were clever enough to pique my interest. So when someone asked if I wanted to borrow this DVD set, I thought "Sure, why not!?"
>I watched all 24 episodes in 2 days. I was hooked, as soon as one episode ended, I wanted to watch the next one. 2 1/2 hours later I realized I had finished the first disc... The performances of John C. McGinley and Neil Flynn steal the show. The cast, in general, is great, and the writing is spectacular. By far, this is my favorite show on the air right now.
Arrested Development In A Hospital
I really wish that I had gotten into this show years ago. I didn't even see an episode until I bought this set, which came out just after the end of the fourth season. Yes, I try not to do "blind buys", but this set came very highly reccomended, and I really enjoy the other material by Zach Braff and Bill Lawrence.
>The show centers around Dr. John "J.D." Dorian (Braff), a medical intern at Sacred Heart Hospital, which is probably one of the craziest hospitals on Earth. Along with his best friend Chris Turk (Donald Faison), a surgical intern, and Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke), another medical intern, J.D. tries to make it through the days while having to deal with bizarre patients, nasty superiors, and an insane janitor (Neil Flynn) who can't seem to leave J.D. alone.
>Other cast-members include Nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes), who begins a relationship with Turk, Todd Quinlan (Robert Maschio), another surgical intern who becomes a friend of Turk's, and Ted the Lawyer (Sam Lloyd), a pathetic man who is constantly afraid of malpractice suits. Then there are the doctors. Dr. Perry Cox (John C. McGinley) is a self-hating cynic who, while appearing to be mean to J.D. and the other interns, really only wants them to succeed, and all of his criticism is (fairly) constructive. On the other hand is the evil Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins). Kelso is a man who cares more about the money than the patients (as opposed to Cox, who hates the fact that medicine is now a "business"), and he looks for things that the interns do to criticize.
>This show has a very wacky kind of humor; utilizing sound effects, cutaways, and metaphors for jokes, almost anything is fair game. It may take a few minutes to get used to, but this is definitely one of the funniest shows that I've ever seen. The show makes good use of metaphors; sometimes when a character is speaking metaphorically, we see a cutaway scene showing the metaphor literally (like when J.D. compared the hospital to high school- medical interns are the geeks, surgical interns are the jocks, and nurses are the cheerleaders). Other times, when a character is speaking literally, we see a metaphorical cut scene.
>When I first heard about this show, I was unsure as to how the writers could successfully pull off a comedic medical show. I mean, there is a lot to make fun of, but things can easily be carried too far, especially when dealing with death. Fortunately, the writers and actors know when to switch from being comedic to being dramatic, and it gives the show a sense of dignity that many other shows do not have.
>In the extras department, we get some pretty good stuff. Deleted scenes that are actually funny (I like the one involving two patients who are mentally insane, and believe themselves to be Jesus and Satan), good outtakes, alternate line readings, and audio commentaries.
>In conclusion, this is a great boxed set. It is a definite must-own for Scrubs fans, and is worth checking out for someone who's never seen the show.
Curious observation, no?
This is clearly a five star offering, and so I'm not going to elaborate since others have covered why this show is so great. But consider this observation: this DVD set has been released a week already and there isn't even a single used set for sale! 'Seinfeld Season 4' and 'Arrested Development' went on sale about the same time and there are 30-80 used copies for sale already! What's up with that!?
