SCRUBS Finale


That was the coolest finale EVER. I loved it. My favorite part was the montage at the end that J.D. watches as he exits the hospital. I love that it was on the back of the banner Turk made for him. I love that it was played to such great music as always. I love that it wrapped it all up without being over-the-top cheesy or contrived like some sitcom finales are. It was perfect.

SCRUBS has always had the coolest music and some really great story lines woven so nicely together in just about every episode. The writers have a knack for sharing a theme through 1 or 2 or 3 stories with some great humor and a cast with excellent comedic timing . . . and they have a way of presenting them in 30-minute episodes that just work.

J.D.'s narrations and daydreams, Elliott's neurotic tendencies, Perry Cox's long, long, long hilarious insults (I love the book he got as a gift from J.D.), J.D. and Turk's friendship, Todd's high-5s, the mysterious Janitor, Bob Kelso's good cop-bad cop persona, Jordan's cynical ways, Carla's relationship with each and every one of them, the random interns and patients . . . this show is just great.

It's one of Mark's favorite shows. I think he's always liked how it shows both the frustrating and human side of medicine. We discovered this show during medical school. I remember when we saw commercials for it, we thought, "Omigosh, that looks so stupid, but let's give it a shot." And I'm so glad we did--they hooked us from the beginning and have kept us ever since.

We'll miss you, Scrubs.
You've made us laugh. You've made us cry.
Kudos on such an awesome finale.

I BAWLED. I could not stop crying. It was verging on sobs during that montage at the end, and I'm not kidding. It was so good! And JANITOR. What is his name?! Tony, or Glen? I'm thinking Glen for real and he was just messing with the buy who called him Tony.

Oh! I didn't know it was over, I'm gonna have to watch it. I have only watched sporadically, but what I have seen, I know I would have gotten really into! How long was it on for?

The finale was one of the best series finales I've seen. I think this was 8 years for them. Not too shabby for a show that we thought looked kind of dumb in the first commercials 8 years ago.

Apparently not a series finale, it's coming back next year, and JD will be in 6 episodes.

For real or rumored? I can't imagine them topping that so part of me almost hopes it's rumor . . .
