You know, I am starting to like this more than the last couple seasons of Scrubs. Too bad it looks like it is done soon, it was starting to come together.

The actress who plays Lucy is terrible. The scenes of her trying to pull off crazy/badass were painful to watch. Pretty ho hum episode.

Re: Scrubs [Med School] - "Our Dear Leaders" - 01/26/10

"i like watching people fall...I like watching kids fall" the look on her face when she said that was when i fell in love haha

i cant find the article now, but i was reading yesterday on my rss reader that theres a chance this might get one more season so they can end it on a 10 year length. I cant believe the show actually started back in 2001!

Denise and Drew are the best characters in this show and yes, her voice was raspy until the last scene that played over the credits.

Why have Nicky Whelan in the cast if you don't have her coming out of a pool in slow motion at least 3 times an episode?

...or she's just following the plot of the episode where after she flashed back to Hell Week she said her throat was tightening up and she started to get raspy and it stuck through the rest of the episode.

It's becoming a broken record for me. I think I have a dude crush on Drew.
This show would be so much better if he was front and center and Lucy was pushed aside.

That would be awesome. I'm starting to enjoy it more than the last couple seasons of Scrubs proper. They seem to finally be getting into a groove with the new cast. Just make Drew's role bigger and Lucy's smaller and remove the security guards and I'm all set. Oh, and give the Australian more screen time over Lucy.

I'm even enjoying Cole now, changing him from a huge dick to doofus is great. "I don't speak Carribesian"

Drew is great protege for Cox. I think the problem with having Drew, Denise and Cox as the leads is there may be too much cynicism, but I wouldn't mind them trying it out.

Re: Scrubs [Med School] - "Our Dear Leaders" - 01/26/10

Honestly, with the security guards gone, everyone has grown on me to the point where I'm actually enjoying the show again. Lucy really is the weakest part of the cast, but I think that might be a good thing since there's no one I'd prefer to see narrating (even if they are better actors). Something about connecting with her in no way whatsoever and feeling completely indifferent toward anything she does just makes it easier to listen to her narration objectively.

I do wish they'd tone down Turk a bit, though.

To my great surprise, I'm liking this reboot a lot more than I ever liked the original. Hope it sticks around. And I especially hope they keep JD away.

I'm reading that this was the last episode until (maybe) March -- or whenever ABC decides to throw the last two on just to be done with them.

Re: Scrubs [Med School] - "Our Dear Leaders" - 01/26/10

This show has improved so much since JD left for good. They really have done a great job making me like Cole too. He was awful those first couple of episodes but has since become a pretty decent character. He had a lot of great lines this episode, my favourite being "Some big guys took them [wheelie shoes]."

Lucy is definitely the worst of the bunch at this point. Her acting is subpar at best and her daydreams aren't all that good. However, I will give her credit in that she is a good narrator.

And again, like I say every week, Denise and Drew are definitely the highlight of the show. Drew in particular continues to deliver the funny. It's a shame the show is probably going to end because he is so great; I wonder if they had introduced him somehow last season and carried him forward if it would have helped retain viewers.

I enjoy seeing Kelso and The Todd pop up every now and again as well. I think it's smart to keep them there but have them just show up for a quick one-liner.

It's also great to see a somewhat different side to Dr. Cox. Sure, he is still the wise-cracking terror that he was all along, but he is more direct and open about his mentoring Drew.

Will be sad to see it go, but it would be nice if they got at least another season to wrap things up. That being said, if I had to choose to save this show or Better Off Ted I'd choose Better Off Ted without hesitation.

Sorry to bump, but it looks like the next episode was moved around again since I don't see it on ABC's schedule for tonight after all.
