Scrubs is full of humor, heart, and life lessons. The writers and Bill Lawrence worked tirelessly on character development, which I always favor. JD changes throughout the seasons, as does Turk, Cox, and all of the ladies. If you want to laugh, fall in love with characters, and really think about life, death, how it affects people, and the what-ifs, then Scrubs is your show. Absolutely amazing. However, it is known that NBC (which has done evils to other greats, like Seinfeld and even Conan O'Brien), attempted to alter the show towards the final two seasons. Bill was not happy about it, nor was Zach, or any other writer. If I recall correctly, season 7 was supposed to end the show, and then they had to change everything at the last minute and include another season, messing with the plot entirely. I sometimes wonder how amazing art would be if left alone to its vices, its creators working tirelessly on it until THEY say it is completed. Needless to say, the overall opinion by the public on the final season of Scrubs is pretty dismal. But don't let that stop you from an incredible show!

The one show I keep coming back to. Seriously watched every episode at least a dozen times over the years. Has it all. Funny. Sad. Stupid. Smart. Ridiculous. Bottom line: enjoyable over and over. And over. Yeah I probably have a problem. Eeeaagggllleeeee!!!!!! PS You most certainly can avoid the last season and pretend it doesn't exist. It was supposed to be a new series but failed unfortunately, so now they call it season nine.

Wonderful show with great characters that are easy (and hard) to love. Please note this comment and rating only apply through the second to last season. I have no idea why the network tried to keep it going with new cast after so many originals had moved on. They know where it should have ended, and I hope they regret the last season.
