Product Description

Get ready for one wacky house call with the hilarious third season of SCRUBS. It's a whole new year for the staff of Sacred Heart as Elliot undergoes a complete makeover in an attempt to change her luck, and the residents discover the incredible healing powers of an epiphany toilet. Joining J.D. and the gang are a host of hysterical guest stars, including Tom Cavanagh (ED), Tara Reid (AMERICAN PIE), and the legendary Michael J. Fox -- "One of our all-time favorite comedy actors returns to the small screen ... on one of our all-time favorite shows," raves Entertainment Weekly. Bursting with highly contagious bonus features and featuring the show's original unedited music in 5.1 Surround Sound, SCRUBS' complete third season is just what the doctor ordered.


Not content to rest on the solid pratfalls that made it famous, Scrubs stretched its legs in season three to give deeper insight into its characters. With Turk and Carla (Donald Faison and Judy Reyes) planning their season-finale wedding, J.D. (Zach Braff) once again wrestles with his feelings for fellow resident Elliot (Sarah Chalke), but her reciprocity leads to a startling revelation. Scrubs also lent numerous guest stars to its cause, including former Spin City castmates Richard Kind as a hypochondriac, Barry Bostwick as a cancer patient, and Michael J. Fox in a hilarious return to television as an obsessive-compulsive visiting surgeon. Scott Foley (Felicity) plays Elliot's devoted suitor, and Tara Reid's turn as Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley)'s sister-in-law starts out daffy and decomposes into parody. (Producers admit in episode commentary that they tried to cast Reid against type, then gave up a few episodes later and told her to just be her wild, party-going self.) But it's two returning guest stars that pack the most emotional wallop: Mad TV's Nicole Sullivan as a chirpy patient whose barely masked troubles are ignored by her doctors; and Brendan Fraser as Dr. Cox's cancer-stricken brother-in-law, Ben. Fraser's episode, entitled "My Screw Up," does a masterful job turning from comedy to tearjerker on a dime in one half-hour. It's one of the best episodes of the show's entire run, and a crime that McGinley wasn't recognized for his brilliant work.

Two episode commentaries, featuring producers, writers, and Faison, aren't as fun as in past seasons (though referring to Braff as "Chicken Little," the character he voiced in Disney's much-maligned animated film, is a notable jab). But the DVD set stuffs in way too many featurettes, including one just devoted to the stars' dogs. One complaint: The animated navigation menu takes way too long getting to the special features, it's tempting to skip them altogether. Better to just hit "play" and re-watch the episodes again. --Ellen A. Kim

Season 3 of Scrubs is one of the best seasons on TV. This season we get to see Michael J. Fox and Scott foley, among others. here is a complete overview.

47. My American Girl, (10/2/03)

A run-in with her old flame Sean and an accident in her new car leads Elliot to the realization that nothing good has happened to her in the three years that she has been at Sacred Heart. This realization drives her to take drastic measures, including a complete makeover, both inside and out, in an attempt to change her luck. Meanwhile, JD gets stuck with a patient whose diagnosis he can't quite pin down, and when Dr. Cox denies him any assistance, he looks to Carla and Turk to help him out. While Dr. Cox is busy not helping J.D., he takes the time to make amends with Dr. Kelso.

48. My Journey (10/10/03)

J.D. is feeling left out of his friendship with Turk, and gets hurt when Turk is scared of opening up to him. Meanwhile, Carla is driven crazy over an unidentified urine sample and Elliot tries to balance Sean and her career, so that one doesn't end up getting in the way of the other.

49. My White Whale (10/23/03)

Finding difficulties training his interns, J.D. asks to Elliot for some help. She tells J.D about Sean, who gave Elliot great tips based on his dolphin training that fit perfectly for her interns. Dr. Cox finds the ideal pediatrician for his son: Dr. Norris, who acts and looks just like him. However, Dr. Cox is quick to find a problem with him once Jack develops a cough that scares both him and Jordan.

Unlike most other shows out there, Scrubs just gets better and better as it goes on. Even now, five years later, the storylines are still fresh and original (although some of the slapstick aspects get reduced, reused, and recycled over and over again, like the hospital barbershop quartet). Scrubs is so different than other plastic sitcoms out there with their fake laugh tracks and completely unfunny storylines. This show still has a modest viewership, but it deserves more as it is intellectually and comedically superior to most of the other stuff out there.

Season 3 keeps rolling right along, with some great stories as well as some heartbreaking ones. I'm really looking to season 4, when Tom Cavanaugh guest stars as JD's brother and spends an entire episode in the bathtub. But, it looks like these sets are being released every six months, so we can look forward to a season 4 release in November.

So....your thinking of buying the third series of Scrubs, and the question you probably want to know is "Is this worth the $29 dollars that retailers are selling it for??

Well...the answer is made much easier if you're an existing fan of the series. But there is certainly a progression in the series, that will make it harder for those of you that have missed the majority of the first two seasons. The cast all return for the third season, which makes the show seem consistent with the previous seasons, and means that there are no missing central characters that are solely missed (or even ignored for the third season).

What has changed ever so slightly for Scrubs, is the reluctance to completely rely on slapstick or physical humour that was so prevalent in the first series. And the writers have taken the bold step of padding out episodes with much more in the way of witty dialogue and situation scenarios, and fleshing out the development of the more minor characters in the show (the Janitor has a much bigger role, this time around), plus the relationships of the characters within the show are central/reoccurring themes throughout this season: (Dr Cox/Jordan & Turk/Carla's relationship's feature heavily throughout), and although "J.D." is still the pivotal character of the show, a larger percentage of the running time is now allocated to some of the other central characters, such as: Elliot, Dr Cox & Turk.

I'll admit that as much as I loved the second series (and still do), it took a little while longer for me to dial into the second season, than the first season, as the pacing of the second seasons first couple of episodes seemed a little slower and a little more serious in tone.

Why it is taking so long to bring out this great show on DVD is a mystery to me, but thank god they are finally doing it. Let's just hope that they don't dawdle on Seasons Four and Five.

Although SCRUBS was a quality show from the very beginning, Season Three stands out for the quality both of the individual episodes and the manner in which they developed the various story arcs. All the nutty and frequently surreal humor is still there and the show doesn't skimp at all on laughs, but it does an increasingly good job of going into issues surrounding understanding the behavior of central characters. Although the focus on one level is the impending marriage of Turk and Carla, much time is spent on the pathology of JD's relationships, not exclusively but primarily the one between him and Elliot. The result of this is that all the characters are far less one dimensional and cartoonish than in most comedies.

More and more various shows rely on prominent guest stars during sweeps and few shows can top SCRUBS in this regard. Scott Foley plays Elliot's Season Three boyfriend. Though he was in an earlier season, we didn't learn then that he is a marine biologist, and their relationship is put on hold for most of the year when he goes to New Zealand for a research project. Not to be outdone, the show provides for many episodes a girlfriend in the person of the lovely Tara Reid. Brendan Frasier reprises his role as Jordan's happy-go-lucky brother Ben, while Michael J. Fox has a wonderful appearance as a brilliant doctor/surgeon with severe OCD. And how about that priest who looks like George Takei, Mr. Sulu from STAR TREK? Played, of course, by George Takei.

And then there is JD and Elliot.

Why do I have to wait so long for the DVDs?
I believe that NBC and Touchstone recently struck a deal to put Scrubs on iTunes. Although I think they might just be selling the current season.

The Price
I searched around to see what I could find pricewise. Cheapest is Walmart.com for $30.79 plus $2.47 for shipping. You could probably find it in your local Wal-Mart store the day it comes out for cheap. Wal-Mart always has sales on DVD's the first day they are realeased.
