SCRUBS: Season Premiere?

For those of you who know me, know how much I LOVE SCRUBS, and all of the characters. But what I don’t know is weather or not the SEASON PREMIERE will OR WILL NOT start on :

Thursday, October 25th, 2007 @9:30pm on NBC.

I miss Scrubs. So. Much. Even though I watch it every single night via syndication. (Thank you Fox)

Anyone? Google is of no help..and neither is NBC.Com.

*Sigh*

Scrubs was created by Bill Lawrence back in 2001 and broadcast on NBC. The show has long since lived on my television. I welcomed the sixth season with as much anticipation as any other thus far. I am now dying for Season 7.

I have to admit; once George Clooney left the cast of ER back in 1999, I vowed I would never to watch another “hospital” related series. However, Scrubs takes on a completely different approach to work and life in a hospital setting with a comical twist.

Scrubs, is somewhat like the series ER, with the fast paced medical crisis and deeper hidden meanings of life. Mixed with a dash of the Seinfeld magic (four main characters which all have equal roles in each episode) and you have one very brilliant program.

The writing isn’t packed with medical jargon or overly dramatic scenes. Instead the lines are peppered with cunning sarcasm and steadfast wit. The writing is what makes the show unlike anything else out there these days. The story lines, the acting, the ever so perfect sound track, all good reasons as to why this sitcom has outlasted so many others over the past five years that have fallen short and to the wayside.

The lead character, Dr. John Dorian, “J.D.”, played by (none other than) Zack Braff, provides the viewer with his inner monologue during each episode. The seamless integration of reality and fantasy scenes are impeccable. J.D. embarks upon his forever battle to win the respect from his superior Dr. Percival “Perry Cox”, played by John C. McGinley. The never ending longing for approval and sheer nuisance of J.D.s desperate need to bond like father and son with Dr. Cox, gives way for multiple scenes in which Dr. Cox seems to get off degrading J.D. with the constant use of different female nicknames such as Vivian or Fiona. To quote Dr. Cox, “Back off Tiny Dancer, I have work to do.” Berating, all in the name of mentor. His wife, Jordan Sullivan, played by Christa Miller
is the only person that can get away with giving it to Perry, and she dishes out just as much if not more to damage his super ego.

The show becomes even funnier when it is complimented by J.D.’s “man-love” for his best friend, the surgeon, Dr. Christopher Duncan “Turk”, played by Donald Faison. J.D. and Turk have an onscreen friendship that leaves you wondering, scratch that, knowing, they must be having a great time while filming. They make you want to drink apple martinis and get to know them in real life.

You add one gangly, neurotic, basket case, smarty, (and hottie) Dr. Elliot Reed, played by Sarah Chalke, a woman everyone can relate to. Every woman has been an “Elliot Reed” in one situation or another. Lest not forget to mention Sarah Chalke has a gift for the scenes that require some pretty crafty physical comedy as well.

Top that with the gossipy, know what’s best for everyone else, can’t take her own advice, heart of gold, Nurse Carla Espinosa, played by Judy Reyes. Nurse Carla Espinosa is married (on Scrubs) to surgeon Dr Turk, aka Dr. Turkleton.
One of the key characters in the show has to be the Janitor, played by Neil Flynn. The Janitor is the arch nemesis to J.D. Only, J.D. doesn’t know the exact nature of the Janitor’s hatred, even though it is apparent the Janitor is out to get J.D. at every turn. He may not be a lead character, but the series would not be complete without our “jumpsuit.”

The all mighty head of Sacred Heart Hospital, Dr. Bob Kelso, played by Ken Jenkins. The best way to summarize Dr. Bob Kelso is to quote him. “What has two thumbs and doesn’t give a crap? Bob Kelso, Nice to meet you.”

For the hospital’s legal department you have a mid 40 year old, spineless, still living at home with his mother, incapable of confrontation without passing out unconscious, Ted Buckland, played by Sam Lloyd

Last but certainly not least you have a possibly gay? Possibly straight? Always inappropriate, high “5” obsessed, surgeon Todd Quinlan, played by Robert Maschio

I look forward to every single new episode. I own all of the previous seasons on DVD. The sound tracks are downloaded in my ITUNES. I watch Scrubs via syndication on Comedy Central. If you haven’t been watching Scrubs, you have seriously missed out on some of the best television program to come along!

What are some of you favorite lines in the show? Feel free to quote the characters in the comments!

Or yanno…let me know WHEN THE SEASON PREMIERE IS? I don’t want to miss the kick of of Season 7. (possibly the final season.)

Oh…And If you have 10 minuets watch this video:
