    WTF?!?!?!

    A clip show? A CLIP SHOW? I've been praying that Scrubs will eventually pick up after the proverbial skidmark of a start that is season 6 of Scrubs. Man, was I wrong.

    Scrubs used to be the funniest program on TV. Endlessly quotable. Seriously funny. Sometimes quite sad and emotional.

    Plus Heather Locklear smaking her ass....enough said.

    WTF HAS HAPPENDED TO THIS SHOW?!?

    It was the worst episode, but season 6 gets MUCH better in the latter half of the season. The second half of season 6 is up there with the best Scrubs has ever been.

    I wouldn't go that far. The stories are good, but the acting is incredibly hammy and shallow.

    I remember i watched an episode the other day where dr.cox just stood there and explained why each character is funny and it took all the self restraint i had to stop me from smashing my monitor.

    Scrubs has gotten bad since S4, if it wasn't for heather graham s4 would have been as bad as s5 and most of s6.

    I'm pretty sure the 'jumped the shark' moment is the one where jd dumps elliot for no reason, and then the next episode turk doesn't make it to his wedding, end of S3.

    A couple of weeks ago I was unfortunate enough to catch the road trip episode. What the fuck.

    Its a very mixed bag I find. Capable of being genuinely funny, and then mawkishly, diabetes inducingly sentimental a minute later.

    I still love the show, but you have to admit it's taking a turn for the worst.

    For example, Turk and Carla have had a baby but we've seen it about 3 times and they hardly mention the bloody thing. Considering how much chuffing story was put into them having a sprog and then they don't mention it at all?

    The show lost me at Season 3, some good moments but overall it lost its energy, saw some of S5 and it was awfull, Zach Braff was really overacting (as they all were) and playing it far too surreal, as apose to the more subtle stuff in S1/2

    Series 6 starts abominably, but the second half IS a lot better.

    Please don't get my hopes up! I don't think I can handle the disappointment...

    Make it better 5?

    S1/2 are perfect, 3 is just as good untill the closing few episodes, then it all trails off after that

    Tool?

    You're complaining about a clips show and implying it's lost creativity and freshness, and I'm saying that's what tends to happen to a show after several seasons. No need for the one word closing insults.


    prick.

    season 1 - 3 are the only one really worth watching imo, with season 4 being the all-time low. it just wasn't funny, at all. ill agree the second half of season 6 picks up tho

    Seasons 1 and 2 - flawless.
    Season 3 - good but not great.
    Season 4 - great again.
    Season 5 - not great again, and showing signs of writers having run out of gags for the scenario of a hospital comedy, and having to resort to cuuurrrrazy plts and such, blah blah blah
    Season 6 - Don't care anymore.

    Shame they decided to commission this for another series as it lost the plot long ago.

    Now I will remember for its terrible final few seasons rather than the amazing first three.

    Has anybody watched the American version of the office? Now that is a good comedy show especially once they started coming up with their own story lines.

    S7 is the final one. 18 Episodes.

    TBF, sometimes im glad good shows get cancelled, i mean i'd cry if arrested development went as wrong as scrubs has done.

    It's one low point in (another) great series of scrubs.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    If Scrubs had been commissioned for exactly five seasons, they could all have been legend. Much the same way that if the Simpsons were only 150 episodes long, it would have been infinite density comedy!!! :'(

    S1-4 are all flawless IMO. I didn't really like how things went in S5, the acting started to become really silly and over the top, JD and Elliot in particular became caricatures of their characters in the first few seasons. However, S5 does have some all time classic episodes, notably My Lunch and His Story III.

    /agree

    S3 of The Office (US) is exellent, I hate that crap UK "yank version sx0rz" crap when 90% of them have never seen it. Once they stopped trying to be like the UK version it was miles better, better acting, better writing and the Jim / Pam payoff in S3 > Tim / Dawn one ;)
