Scrubs ended at season 8.
Amazon Customer
Scrubs Med School, lets call it what it was supposed to be called, isn't the masterpiece show that Scrubs was, but it's still a good show in its own right.
James N Simpson
I'm sorry but as a true "scrubs" fan, i like to pretend this season never happened.

It's too bad that this show had to be called Scrubs, because it would have made a relatively good first season of a different show. And, as another reviewer has pointed out, the Scrubs holdovers were often the worst part of this last season.

Why was this show finally canceled? Let us count the ways:

1. In a move that apparently only the staff writers found funny, Zach Braff's J.D. became increasingly vane, stupid, and effeminate to the point of being totally ridiculous. This change began in season 5 when JD's silliness leaked out of his fantasies and into his normal behavior, when J.D. began truly acting selfishly with regard to his relationships with Elliot (especially) and Turk (occasionally). This annoyance persisted throughout seasons 6 and 7 as the fantasies got longer and dumber and the stories lost their humanity and realism. Though the writers sagely brought back the sweet and introspective J.D. for almost all of season 8, we find him back in his worst insecure, jealous, appletini drinking form here in season 9. He seems to exist only to appease those who tuned in to see Braff's mug.

2. After slowly softening Dr. Cox and Kelso up for the last 8 years, the writers had no antagonist against whom they could pit these new med students. In the first seasons, audiences rooted for JD, Elliot, and Turk to hold their own against Kelso, Cox, and Bonnie. In later seasons, the stories became more about unfolding those once menacing characters and watching JD, Elliot, and Turk grow up. With all of that out of the way, these new cast members are left without much of a challenge, as no one really finds Cox or Kelso all that scary.

I think my biggest and really only problem is that they named this Scrubs season 9 and not season 1 of "The new Scrubs" or "Scrubs: Med School" This was not the original Scrubs, but would have been a good series in itself. With a fresh young cast and some of the leftovers from the original I thought this had a good balance of new and old. I think that bringing the old Scrubs fans into a new spin off show, instead of them hoping they would get another season of their beloved show would have been a much wiser decision, and it may have been renewed if that were the case. If you are a fan of Scrubs and go into this seeing it as a spin off you will most likely love it. If you go into watching it thinking it will be the same as the prior 8 seasons you will be severely disappointed.

Upon reading others' reviews of the product, I have also decided to write my own (somewhat biased) review.

This television show suffered from two main problems, the first of these is that it carried on the name "Scrubs." This is by far the worst decision ABC could have made regarding this show. In the same way Fraiser, Mork and Mindy, or countless other spin-offs created new titles for themselves while still keeping familiar characters this series needed to do the same. Do NOT buy this product if you are expecting the same brilliance that can be found in the first 8 seasons of this show. It is a different show all together, much as Bill Lawrence wrote on his blog about the show. People expecting the same characters and same relationships as before will find themselves sorely disappointed in the product, much as I am.

The second "unforgivable sin" which you will note that many other reviews (both previous and following this one) is the return of the characters and hospital name from the previous seasons. Bottom line is, JD is the heart and sole of all 8 seasons of Scrubs preceding this one. When you remove focus from his character, and the relationships he already established you lose the primary essence of this once great television show.
Adding to this, the relocation of the hospital and the retaining of some characters, though not many, is briefly glossed over in the first episode, in a way that says "the writers of the show couldn't think of anything", even an earthquake destroying the old building would have been preferable to the pass-and-glance attitude they give the new setting which, by the way, doesn't fit at all into the reality constructed by the show and completely ruins the suspension of disbelief. (I mean Dr. Cox as friends with JD and Turk?

Look I am sure by now you have heard that Season 9 is not worth your time. Because many of the original characters are not featured as prominently as the first 8 seasons. In fact almost everyone, except for Turk and Dr. Coxs are gone. With an exception of a few cameos from J.D, Elliot and Bob Kelso, everyone is gone. But here is the real truth about this show, it a great season in its own right. This shows main focus are the interns and their journey of becoming doctors. Keep in mind this season is really a stand alone, unlike seasons 1-8. This in my opinion was the best thing for the show. Zach Braff (J.D) had left the show, along with many others. So the decision to bring in new characters was a breath of fresh air. Please do not misunderstand me. Scrubs is my all time favorite comedy and it as earned that status because of its characters. However, this new cast is great as well. Although some reviews that i have read would make it sound like they are rip offs of J.D and Coxs and guess what, THATS THE POINT!! I will not go into much detail but J.D is a teacher as well as Coxs, Bob and Turk. And one of the ongoing story lines in this season is that they want a intern that resembles them. Which also compliments the fact that the three of them are very narcissistic as the characters themselves admit they are. I mean these new characters are interesting and funny. What's the problem? I will admit the main character (Lucy) is the equivalent female version of J.D. She comes complete with fantasies, problems with DR. Coxs and self confident issues. But these similarities make sense because J.D takes her under his wing for the short time he is featured in this season, because of there similarities. I admit not having the full original cast sucks worst than Hugh Jackman.Read more ›
