The End of an Era
So the final episode of Scrubs aired last week. I watched it with my girlfriend yesterday and I have to say it was quite upsetting. Topped the last ending of Friends for me!
The end of a decent TV show always sucks for me... I hate season ending let alone the last episode ever! Though, saying that, Bill Lawrence has considered a new sitcom with a different cast (god I hope they keep in Turk even thought it wouldn't be the same without JD) and possibly a different name. It would never match up to Scrubs with Zach Braff but I trust is Bill Lawrence's abilities as a Director and Writer so I know it will still be worth the watch.
The last episode ever 'My Finale' was by far the best Scrubs episode I have seen. It was a full 41 minutes long, twice the length of usual episodes, and was packed full of laughs and the odd sad moment :(
It also leaves questions... For instance, the Janitors name. Glen Mathews? The writers did well leaving us questioning it.
But I think the most defining moment in the episode had to be when Dr. Cox finally shared his feelings about JD. The BEST rant he has ever done!
"For the record he was the best doctor that ever came through this dump. John Dorian was the first and only doctor that cared as much as I do and you can forget about him being just an exceptional physician, because the fact of the matter is... he was a damn exceptional person. It's why people gravitated to him. It's why I did. He was my friend."
Bit over the top but seriously unbelievable :P
Anyway.. Got to get to school for some assembly... Will update tonight after Star Trek!
Oh and SPOILERS!
