Hey, "Scrubs": WTF?

Hey, "Scrubs": WTF?

Okay, "Scrubs" has been on TV for a long time, and I've been a consistent fan. It must be challenging to sustain a half-hour comedy for six seasons, but they seem to have done a pretty great job, even pulling off kitschy episodes like a musical and one that used a laugh track to mimic traditional sitcoms. For the most part, they've managed to keep things fresh and fun.

So WTF happened last night?! Using an outrageously weak "plot line" in which a patient has amnesia after attempting suicide, the main characters mull the importance of memory. They go through a series of "memory" montages, throwing together a bunch of clips from previous episodes. For all the lame details,

The segues between each montage were lame to say the least: Apropos of nothing, Janitor says he wants to dance, turns on his radio, and suddenly we're taken to a montage of previous dance moments. JD even calls it out at one point, saying something like, "If I can remember some more moments, that will use up at least a few more minutes," before cutting to another montage.

I've watched my share of YouTube "Scrubs" montages, so I know they can be funny, but in this episode it came across as lazy and insulting. If NBC doesn't care about making any more quality episodes, why should we? If we wanted to see old "Scrubs" episodes, we'd turn on TBS. What do you think? Were you as disappointed in the "Scrubs" team last night as I was?

"Friends" did this quite a few times...I guess it's okay if you haven't seen every single episode of a show, because some of the scenes will still be new and funny, but when you're an avid watcher, it can get pretty boring.

I'm totally in the minority here but I really enjoyed it. The flashbacks were funny, and I like the funny. BaltimoreGal

it is ridiculous to do flash back episodes in the age of syndication. very frustrating when they do this.

i COMPLETELY agree. The 30 min. recap show DID NOT TRANSLATE. I love the show normally but the flashbacks minus context did not equal hilarity.

I thought the show was pretty awful. I mean I understand they like to make fun of how the old sitcoms were, but at least their montages were somewhat funny. These were just scenes stuck together, not any real dialogue during the montages! I seems like they were running out of ideas and I was disappointed. (And what was up with Dr. Cox's shaved head...Did I miss something?)

Based on Wednesday's episode of IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, I think they may be in line to take over the SCRUBS crown. Its really funny & somehow manages to be irreverent, goofy & heartfeft all at once! Its painful to watch a formerly funny show limp to toward the end of the my advice is to check out the next generation. (Now all ABC has to do is find ICE a good timeslot, when people can actually watch!!)

Ooh! YOu sound so riled up! I agree, and at one point, didn't JD say something about sitcoms running out of ideas and doing a show like this??? And...did they ever tell the guy why he was in there? I think I must have fallen asleep, because I dont' remember 30 ROck AT ALL. Crap. Now I have to buy it from iTunes.
