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.Read more ›
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?Read more ›
