Scrubs... I thought...

... it sucked!

It's part ER, part Parker Lewis, part Ally McBeal...

which equals... WTF!?

I wish that they would have treated this like a SitCom... making it look 35mm sucks. Take it off the air now, retool it, and then bring it back mid-season. Change it into soemthing... other than the calico mess it is.

I laughed once... I think?!

Yeah! That show was darn good.

AsS for Scrubs I thought it was pretty funny. I didn't expect much but really enjoyed it.

I liked the show, but I think the commericals showed all the best scenes, which made the actual show a bit of a letdown. I could have done without all the imagination stuff, like when he saw himself on the television screen. I'll probably watch again if I stumble across it.

I really enjoyed it! More so than I did any other new show this season.

I have to say it should be a keeper.

We must have opposite tastes. Besides Undeclared, this looks to be the best new sitcom on the schedule-- although with sitcoms, that's not really saying much...

Personally, I VASTLY prefer the 1-camera-35mm look to sitcoms than the 3-camera-soundstage-videotape look... Filmed shows are most likely to leave off the laughtrack, too... Another plus...

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this show. I hadn't planned to watch it because the commercials made it look so stupid, but I stumbled across it and stayed. I laughed quite a few time.

"I don't want to have sex with you."
"Yes, you do."
"No. I don't."
"Do me right here."
"Oh baby."
"See?"

I personally thought the show was hilarious! I was laughing more at this show than any other thus far this season (Inside Schwartz was good too). That scene in the closet was great, and the middle-aged doc who keeps being half nice/half condescending is great.

The show definitely has potential. I'll be watching for a couple weeks anyway.

I think it is very good and has a lot of potential. Give it time and I think it will be an NBC hit.

Does anyone think it's inspired or insipid programming to put Scrubs on just before ER?

I do like the show so far.

That thing with the stuffed dog. It was so underplayed, which made it even funnier.

This Thursday's episode was very good, too. This show cracks me up! The dog bit was quite funny.

Funny thing, is I can't even remember the main character's name, but I guess "Bambi" will have to do until I remember.

That blonde is quite the package, though. Mmmmm...

His name should be Ray Romano Jr.

I liked it. I didn't expect to...I work in a hospital and don't normally feel like watching it on my TV when I'm at home but
this was pretty funny.
