1.0 out of 5 stars Protection on disc is too strong, May 10, 2011
This review is from: Scrubs: Season 8 (DVD)
My thoughts are on the actual product of DVD and not on the show itself. The show is fantastic, but the DVDs you buy are not.

The copy protection is quite ridiculous. It would not play on my PC at all. I switched programs to try and get it to play in another way and it only played like a scrambled TV channel. I then popped this disc into a DVD player connected only to a TV set and it worked.

Went to a different PC and the movies would not play. I then did a small amount of research and found that both seasons 8 and 9 of scrubs have very problematic copy protection.

I can highly recommend seasons 1 - 7 to buy on DVD for sitcom fans. However, seasons 8 and 9 should take some consideration. If you want to have flexibility with the media you buy, you might consider passing. If you can get past the intentional problems introduced to the media, then the show itself is quite good.

Notes on content: I have grown to love the new characters introduced. Only a few in season 8, many others in season 9 and am now sad the show has ended. I think I could have enjoyed a few more seasons with the new crew. However, since this is a physical product you are purchasing, too much weight goes into actually being able to view the material itself. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with ABC taking over the show for season 8 and 9, but I'll have to pass on any media that comes crippled for its paying customers.
