Newbies -- Examines The Actors Before They Were Cast

Editorial Reviews

The sitcom may be flatlining, but as long as there are fresh and original series like Scrubs, the prognosis isn't entirely negative. Created by Bill Lawrence, Scrubs is an interns'-eye view of hospital life and the torturous, tragic, and triumphant route to becoming a doctor. The eminently likeable Zach Braff heads the cast as "newbie" J.D., whose years of medical school haven't quite prepared him for chaotic Sacred Heart Hospital. Family Guy has nothing on the live-action Scrubs when it comes to surreal asides and fantasy sequences (for example, J.D. literally becomes the proverbial deer in the headlights when he cannot answer a medical query), pop culture references, and TV Land casting (John Ritter guest stars as J.D.'s negligent father in "My Old Man," and St. Elsewhere veterans William Daniels, Ed Begley, Jr., Stephen Furst, and Eric Laneuville appear as Legionnaire's-stricken doctors in "My Sacrifical Clam"). With surgical precision, this inaugural season charts J.D.'s growth as a doctor and a human being, and the close-knit bonds he forms with his equally overwhelmed peers and colleagues, including best friend and surgeon Chris Turk (Donald Faison), beautiful, but raw-nerved and by-the-book Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke), and supportive nurse Carla Espinoza (Judy Reyes'), who affectionately nicknames J.D. "Bambi." But at the heart of the series is J.D.'s relationship with his mentor, Dr. Cox (an Emmy-worthy John C. McGinley), a cross between Obi-Wan Kenobi and a pit bull. Giving Scrubs a further shot of adrenaline are recurring characters Jordan (Christa Miller Lawrence), Dr. Cox's satanic ex-wife, and Neil Flynn as the Janitor, who torments J.D. just as Larry Miller menaced Jerry in the Seinfeld episode "The Doorman."

Scrubs' animated sensibility allows for inexplicable cameos by Jimmie Walker or, at one point, an impromptu West Side Story-esque dance-off to convey the schism between the surgeons and other doctors. But while hilariously funny, Scrubs, too, can break your heart, as in the two-parter "My Occurrence"/"My Hero," with guest star Brendan Fraser as Jordan's spontaneously spirited brother, who is diagnosed with leukemia, and "My Old Lady," in which J.D., Elliot, and Chris experience for the first time losing a patient. Scrubs is one of NBC's few remaining "Must-See" series, but it has not been well-served by the network. Whether you're a "newbie" or devoted viewer, this DVD release is just what the doctor ordered. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Now relive all 24 episodes of the groundbreaking show's highly acclaimed first season. With a host of great bonus features, including never-before-seen dream sequences and a fascinating retrospective documentary, this spectacular four-DVD set is off-the-charts entertainment you'll want to watch over and over again. Joining the rumpled J.D. at Sacred Heart Hospital are fellow residents Chris Turk (Donald Faison, REMEMBER THE TITANS, FELICITY) -- J.D.'s college buddy who is part of the more elite surgical group, and the beautiful but socially awkward Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke, ROSEANNE).

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely MUST-See TV September 5, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In this age of unbelieveable pablum and slit-your-wrists must-miss television, it is unfathomable to me that this phenomenal, well-written, well-acted, and flat-out fantastic television show has been so badly used by NBC, and that they're uncertain about releasing it on DVD. Just this week I happened on the season premiere of 4th season, hidden away on the schedule at 7:30 SATURDAY night, and this after three seasons of bouncing it around the schedule like an unwanted stray. It's as though the network wants to kill it, when it could be, if given the chance, every bit as big a success as "Friends," "Fraiser," and "Will & Grace." Yes, it's quirky, but it's a masterpiece of television genius, and deserves better treatment. I hope to see the early seasons on DVD soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrubs Is The Most Original Comedy In Years June 10, 2006
Usually when a show begins and grows overtime, it endures growing pains. But with Season 1 of Scrubs, that doesn't seem to be the case. In fact, to date it may still infact be my favourite season of Scrubs too date.

These are the episodes you will get with this 3 disc set, which is every episode from season 1

Season 1-1 My First day

Season 1-2 My Mentor

Season 1-3 My Best Friends Mistake

Season 1-4 My Old Lady

Season 1-5 My Two Dads

Season 1-6 My Bad

Season 1-7 My Super Ego

Season 1-8 My Fifteen Minutes

Season 1-9 My Day Off

Season 1-10 My Nickname

Season 1-11 My Own Personal Jesus

Season 1-12 My Blind Date

Season 1-13 My Balancing Act

Season 1-14 My Drug Buddy

Season 1-15 My Bed Bantor & Beyond

Season 1-16 My Heavy Meddle

Season 1-17 My Student

Season 1-18 My Tuscaloosa Heart

Season 1-20 My Way or The Highway

Season 1-21 My Sacrifial Clam

Season 1-22 My Occurence

Season 1-23 My Hero

Season 1-24 My Last Day

Season 1 is a must see for any Scrubs fan who may have missed out or may just want to relive the series from the beggining. If you are not a Scrubs fan, or have never seen the show, this DVD is the best place to start.

This DVD has a great deal of laughs, but it also has its moments which slow down and make you think. An episode of which is My Old Lady, in which JD has to deal with losing a patient for the first time since joining the staff as an intern. My Hero also see's Dr.

4.0 out of 5 stars Calling Dr. Bambi... May 18, 2005
By Cubist
Scrubs is a medical comedy about a group of new interns who are adjusting to the demands of working on the front lines of a busy hospital. There's J.D. (Braff), the idealistic one who also narrates the show, Turk (Faison), the cocky surgical intern and Elliot (Chalke), the goofy ditz whom J.D. has is attracted to, while Turk is drawn to Carla (Reyes), a sarcastic nurse. In his day-to-day routine, J.D. has to deal with the tough and demanding Dr. Cox (McGinley), the gleefully pompous Dr. Kelso (Jenkins) and a mean janitor (Flynn) who delights in tormenting the young intern.

The show has an engaging zany sense of humour reminiscent of early Zucker Abrams and Zucker movies (Airplane!, Top Secret), complete with snappy dialogue and visualizing what J.D. imagines in any given situation. For example, in a moment of complete exasperation and frustration J.D.'s head quite literally explodes. Or, to illustrate the competitive nature with Elliot, we see the two race down a hallway like something out of track and field meet complete with Cheap Trick blasting away on the soundtrack.

The first disc starts off with "Newbies," a featurette where the show's creator, Bill Lawrence talks briefly about how he created Scrubs and incorporated real stories from friends who were doctors. The writers talk about how a season and an episode are constructed. The writers work closely with the actors and play to their strengths. The cast talk about their roles with input from Lawrence.

There is an audio commentary on "My First Day" by Bill Lawrence. Like Arrested Development, Scrubs is a sitcom that only uses one camera which made the network nervous. He touches upon the evolution of the characters and offers some good observations.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's About Time February 10, 2005
I have found this series funny from the get-go. The characters are all well-developed and the situations are at turns hilarious and touching. Watching the residents turn into doctors is almost as much fun as watching thier personalities develop. It's consistant, it's maintained quality and it's taken forever to come to DVD. So hurry up and put the second and third seasons out; I've got the money and I'm not afraid to spend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best show on television finally comes to DVD! May 21, 2005
If you missed out on the first season of Scrubs or if you're a devout fan such as myself, you should get this DVD. Scrubs is an underappreciated show, despite critical praise, and it's an affront to talent, vision, wit and humor that wastes such as American Idol and Two and a Half Men beat it in the Nielsens (Never mind Grey's Anatomy which basically ripped off the format and upped the drama).

I have a theory why: Scrubs is too smart and too touching; people can't handle it. I think it's the closest this generation has come to M*A*S*H* (and in my personal opinion, Scrubs surpasses that legendary show). Scrubs is able to juggle comedy of all kinds: slapstick, nonsense, parody, running jokes, sexual, racial and visual while balancing complex and thoughtful storylines. The characters develop and age over time; story arcs can take weeks to play out. This is less true in the first season, but you can see the seeds being planted. Never mind that plots can hit like a hammer blow: when guest star Brendan Fraser's character is mistakenly(?) diagnosed with leukemia, it is not dealt with in a cutesy jokey way; the characters tackle it head-on over two episodes, and we see complex and intricate developments that sitcoms and reality shows can't handle.

In fact, I would argue that this show depicts reality better than those shows. When Turk (Donald Faison) becomes worried about his appearance, he sacrifices everything to lose weight, including spending time with his girlfriend, Carla (Judy Reyes), who he's trying to please by getting in shape. . You have J.D. (Zach Braff) who desperately wants validation and acceptance from his mentor, Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley), but the Doctor constantly belittles J.D.
