Not actually a sitcom…
Let me start off by saying that I adore this show. Really, I’m absolutely enthralled by it. Here’s the thing, it’s not really a sitcom. If you’re a fan of straight zannyness and a brand new plot with each episode, this isn’t really the show for you.
Sitcom, or situation comedy, is comedy of the moment. It is to say that nothing that has happened previously in the series is the reason for what’s happening now. Scrubs, on the other hand, involves a rather strong continuing plot line and character arcs that encompass a season. The characters change and grow over time.
For me, since, as I said, I am devoted to the show, this is fantastic. I watch it every week and I get a bit more of the story to file away in my head thing. However, if you’re just tuning in for the first time, you might not like the show quite so much. All I can say is, give it time. Let it grow on you a bit before you cast judgment. Because really, the show is good. But tuning in for one episode won’t really tell you that.
Better than Friends
Season 1 SPOILERS!!!! I saw the advert for this years ago and thought it looked completely ridiculous, then one day i spotted the 1st season boxset on sale so i decided to give it a try and i’m very glad i did.
it starts off like a comedy version of E.R., with Zach Braff’s John Dorian mirroring Noah While’s Dr Carter, however after the first few episodes it becomes evident that the only similarity the 2 programme’s share is being set in a hospital, that’s literally it, so if you made the mistake of thinking this was an E.R. copycat then don’t worry, it’s not.
The characters are all excellently developed, John Dorian J.D. the nerdy intern looking for life lessons all over the place, his jock-like surgeon roommate chris turk who’s friendship with JD is often quite touching, the there’s the latina nurse who ends up dating turk, dr cox the hilariously mean attending physician who’s always happy to put JD in his place but hates owning up to being his mentor, Bob Kelso the reputedly evil but really just misunderstood chief of medicine who is constantly at odds with Cox, the frankly huge collection of second/third tier characters that exist purely to say something genuinely funny every time they’re in scene.
Now the thing with Scrubs is that even though all episodes are set at the hospital they never become samey as each one is varied, in one episode you have JD lusting after his fellow intern Elliot Reid and in another you see Cox’s best friend turning up at the hospital with a seemingly innocent injury that reveals itself to be a life threatening illness then onto JD inadvertently disrespecting the menacing janitor by presuming he’s upset because his mop has gone missing.
every episode is something unique.
the interesting thing about scrubs is that although J.D. is the main character he is not often seen as the “hero” of the show, rather the one who makes mistakes both in his job and his personal life after which he needs one of his friends to help him out, you get the impression that if he had to survive on his own he’d probrably just stand rooted to any given spot with pee trickling down his legs, needy does not even begin to describe this character, saying that his heart is always in the right place and he is known to always make the right decision and do the honest thing.
in the 1st season he’s a great character that you can empathise with as he struggles through relationships and work trouble, however in the later seasons the character practically turns into a girly man-child, doing doodlings of flowery unicorns and making stupid remarks left right and centre, all the while constantly asserting that he will grow up and be more mature. To this end you can’t help but feel that if he spent less time thinking about himself and more time thinking about the people he cares about and the patients in his charge then half of his problems would go away.
so with JD you sort of feel the character, instead of developing, just hits the 12 year old maturity roof and then travels sideways for 9 seasons, it would be unfair to say this about his medical skill though as you do see him come into his own as a professional, but then that’s not what this particular show is supposed to be about and if ever one of his colleagues betters him at anything he flies off the handle and sulks until one of his (surely be now) tired friends gives him a pep talk.
in earnest JD is at best the glue that holds the rest of the characters together, interacting through him and coming together to help him and so on, so perhaps it was intentionally written for him to be irksome in order that the other characters would have more interaction with each other as a consequence.
i would recommend scrubs to anyone as i think that mostly the characters in it are top notch and the laughs come thick and fast.
*also, although i dislike JD’s character it is in no way a reflection on Zach Braff, i’ve seen him in interviews and think he’s a very level headed individual, plus he definitely called time on his character at the right moment rather than staying on for the money. good on him.
