Four years of medical school have prepared J.D. for his first day as an intern at Sacred Heart Hospital - but he has his doubts. As J.D. is thrown into the chaotic world of hospital life, we not only get to see the quirky characters that he encounters, but also hear the humorous commentary of thoughts streaming through J.D.'s head. By J.D.'s side is his best friend since college, the handsome and confident Chris Turk. As a new surgical intern, Turk struts around with a gregarious and cocky demeanor that hides a terror that he only admits to J.D. Both guys initially have the hots for their attractive fellow intern, Elliot Reid, but J.D. quickly finds out her beauty is only surpassed by her hyper-competitive attitude. Guiding the interns' education are those with more medical experience. Dr. Robert "Bob" Kelso, Chief of Medicine, wants the interns to think they can count on him. On the other side of the personality spectrum is Dr. Percival "Perry" Cox, a steamroller of a man short on patience. Watching over the interns with a caustically teasing but caring demeanor, is nurse Carla Espinosa, a woman who is motherly and sexy at the same time - which appeals mightily to Turk.

Like the best series, Scrubs gets stale in a few episodes especially towards the last seasons, but Cox' monologues never fail to uplift you. Granted, a season 9 with half the crew gone wasn't necessary, and ended the show on a low note, but still, Scrubs is an enjoyable, funny, silly, show.

This is THE comedy show Watch it til season 8, season 9 is a waste of time

I really tried to like Season 9... Really I did, but I couldn't get into it... It felt so generic and lazy as if the cast couldn't care reunite again after season 8's awesome finale in my opinion

So Zach and Donald just started their podcast. And, boy, you can NOT rewatch this show. Seriously, you have to rewatch it. I just started with the first episode and even without the great trivia, this show just hold up. For everyone who wants to know how the podcast is calld: "Scrubs Rewatch Show with Zach and Donald". And the name predicts it: They will watch the WHOLE show. I am SO ready for this. Zach and Donald are living in JD and Turk and you can feel it every second.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
