Hey guys, I’m still feeling a little craptastic today (although I think I WILL be returning to work tomorrow, so hopefully I’ll be a better commenter then), so if I’m not on my usual game, forgive me, and don’t take it as a lack of enthusiasm for last night’s two Scrubs episodes, which I really, thoroughly enjoyed.
Which makes me even more bummed that it’s not looking good for Scrubs. Plus, I saw a couple of TV critics on Twitter (namely, Sepinwall) comment on how much better the show is now that JD is gone. It really is. I would say that I enjoyed Scrubs last night as much as I enjoyed anything last season–having Elliot around sometimes is much preferable to JD, and Drew and Denise KILL ME. Kill. They’re so funny. Plus, I love everything about Drew as a character, and the insight into his past as a med student was enlightening and differentiated him nicely from previous characters.
Also, I loved the internet coming back to bite everyone in the ass, especially when Drew forgave the internet, because it’s just so something that you could really see happening in life. The internet … not only does it love bitching, it also loves ass-biting.
Elliot giving Denise relationship advice was great, as was Denise’s idea of a sexy outfit (“free-boobin’ it”), and I actually like Lucy more as a junior Elliott than a junior JD. And I’m glad they appear to have more or less given up on the fantasy sequences (although they did sneak one in there with horses hating people). I realize that I’m writing about both of last night’s episodes like they were one, but … just try to go with it, okay? It’s more fun when you just hop on the crazy train and ride.
Lucy does still bug me, though. The AssCole stuff was kind of cute, and I did laugh a lot at the trick candles (which was more about AssCole than Lucy), but there is so much to not like about her. Sadly, all of that escapes me right now because I can’t stop thinking about her weird hair, and how it looks like a wig and it’s too big for her head, and how no college kid, med student or otherwise, that I have ever known has had hair like that. I feel like, if they’re putting a wig or extensions on her, they should give that up and let her have real hair. I mean, Denise’s hair looks like good real-person hair (dress scene excluded), and Elliot’s looks like really good TV hair. Lucy’s hair looks like someone took a Barbie doll from 1988, enlarged it, and put it on a person. Not cute. And I think it’s making her look old.
Also, I sort of hated that now that she’s dating AssCole she thinks that means she’s going to change him. Sigh. I just wanted to punch her for that, because … well, it’s stupid. Although his list of prohibited words did make me laugh.
Oh, I forgot to mention that I love how AssCole loves old people, such as Kelso and The Golden Girls.
Okay, last thing before I give it up to you guys to comment. I thought the story with Arthur, the concessions guy, was good and reminiscent of old Scrubs. I especially loved Turk and Dr. Cox in Dr. Cox’s office, talking about whether it was the right call. I don’t know if conversations like that really happen in a hospital all the time, mostly because I imagine that mostly it would be the patient’s decision whether to do the surgery or not after hearing both arguments, but I’m sure it’s still a moral dilemma that happens, and if it isn’t real it at least felt real. And the toast to Arthur was nice.
Alright, what did you guys think? Favorite moments, stuff I forgot about, etc? Comment it up!
