true or no?
but of late I've been watching it and its less funny more irritating.
It stands up.
NO FUCKING WAY IS SCRUBS SHIT.
at least seasons 1-6 though. last season suckedddddddddd.
but at times its a bit like finding a diamond in a pile of shit.
it must do considering how much it is repeated on tv.
and all the moralising!! ugh!! give it a break braff
Some episodes are fine and entertaining, but when the big sappy moralising voice-over comes out (on most episodes unfortunately), I just turn it off screaming. At least when Family Guys drops some family values it remembers to undermine it again.
I just find it weird to laugh along at all the silly japes, then suddenly be confronted "OHMYGOD SHE'S GOT CANCER." The musical episode for example - great fun, till the brain tumour kicks in - then I don't want to laugh so much. At least Green WIng never showed you any patients, thus making hospitals look like a hotbed of comedy fun.
If you compare it to Green Wing, then it's brilliant.
That is funny stuff.
most of the time it's really very good. Not only is it funny but it does well walking the very fine tightrope between being heartwarming and outright sentimental. Good sharp characterisation and a nice sense of the absurd. And it can be quite beautifully written at times - cf. the episode where Dr Cox's friend dies.
horrible horrible horrible
it makes me want to watch friends and I find that annoying too
it has some genuine lols in it
It's like a blanket and tomato soup in televisual form.
and part of what's comforting about it is that it's still completely ubiquitous, so if you ever want to turn to it you can do instantly.
and all of JDs girlfriends.
The rest can do one.
are generally worse than those who don't.
it's alongside friends in the IT WILL NEVER LEAVE status on tv, it's not essential viewing tv now but if it were to go, we would miss it :(
I <3 comfort tv, along with Friends and Come Dine With Me this is comfort tv at its finest + girls love just sitting there with u mindlessly for hours just watchin it.
