With their internships and residencies behind them, this is the first year that Turk, J.D, and Elliot are all full-fledged attending physicians. Since the series had originally been based on how interns and residents cope during these transitional years, it would be a challenge for the show to continue to be funny and fresh, but it did not disappoint. At this point I must warn you there are spoilers ahead, particularly in the last paragraph.

J.D is now an attending, and much of his story has to do with him realizing that with the perks of this position comes certain unexpected drawbacks, such as the group of interns with which he is entrusted laughing at his very unfunny jokes in order to score points. "My Jiggly Ball" was also along these lines, with J.D. given the task of introducing Dr. Kelso at a dinner. If J.D. doesn't compliment Kelso, he knows he'll be fired. However, if he doesn't tell the truth he knows he'll lose the support of his colleagues. There's also a little more insight into Kelso in this episode, and we find out that his gruff exterior may just be a way of him coping with decisions he makes each day that save some lives at the expense of others. Finally, there is the ever-present issue of J.D. and his romance problems. In "My Half Acre", I thought J.D. had met his match in the dangerously uncoordinated Julie, but like so many other times it was not to be. Although, I have to say this time, the reason for J.D.'s collapsed romance didn't make very good sense to me.

As for Turk and Carla, of course their long-running story is their attempt to conceive a child. Turk goes from secretly medicating Carla with birth control pills to understanding that, to Carla, making a baby is the most romantic thing in the world.

I was genuinely surprised when the 5. season of "Scrubs" came. I had thought that they would only make the four seasons because of the premise of the series was the main characters being interns and all that. When the fifth season then came out, after my initial surprise I became a bit suspicious. Would this be of the same stuff as earlier seasons?

Yes, it would indeed. Scrubs has grown as a comedy series. It is still somewhere in between sitcom, teen drama and Marx Brothers. It is still the funniest thing in American television since Frasier. Yet, it has changed with the growth and development of the characters. There's a history to the characters and their relationships now, and this fact is made full use of, I think, in this season. They are not interns anymore, but the people are the same. In this season we follow their lives outside the hospital more than previous and there are more personal/family stuff going on, but it is as funny as ever.

Season five continues where season four left off and is just as hillarious as its predecessor. In a word, highly recommendable.

Five seasons later and Scrubs is still holding strong.

Sure some of the plots are pretty out there this time around but the sharp wit and perfect performances all around keeps things going swiftly. Everything we all loved about the first three seasons, the comedy, the reality of working in a hospital, and season four's brilliant comedy, are ever present and they even correct season four's lack of touching moments. The episode My Lunch is enough to evoke emotion I haven't felt since first seeing season one's unbeatable My Old Lady.

Up until now almost every main character was filled out. We know everything about JD, Turk, Carla, and Elliot. One main character that was kind of, but never fully, fleshed out was Dr. Cox. Season five serves as HIS season in many rights (i.e., My Lunch and My Fallen Idol). The Janitor (His Story II) and The Todd (My Lunch) also get a bit more background little by little. Guest stars are, as always, great. Mandy Moore, Nicole Sullivan, Dave Foley, and Gary Busey have hilarious parts and serve as the most notable.

Overall, Scrubs' fifth season is a winner. The bonus features are even great (last season's were a bit lacking). But where is the gag reel? Every previous season has it and it's been continually hilarious, why leave it out now? Running jokes are abound but the best undoubtedly goes to JD's screenplay, Dr. Acula. Lets just hope we don't have to wait so long for season six to arrive.

I have to admit, Scrubs is probably one of the most stupid shows ever. Jerry Lewis looks like a culture, Shakesperean actor next to these guys. Dirty (as dirty as possible) locker room humor, but a guilty pleasure. I shouldn't like it, but... Thanks for considering my unqualified opinion! Dave (in Colorado)

Great seasons for scrubs with Carla and Turk finally having their baby.
Some of the characters are classic as always with Turk, JD, Kelso and Cox.

Elliot's character has started to lose her humor - she is not as silly as she has been in the past. Janitor, while funny, does tend to get old with this same jokes.

The writing is usually funny and the characters keep you wanting to watch more - especially Turk, Kelso and Cox.

If anyone is wondering about the absence of a gag reel in the Season 5 DVDs, worry not. They are there. They're just hidden this time around. Scroll above and to the right of the menus a little and you will find hidden symbols. Select those to find outtakes and deleted scenes. There may even be more, but those are the ones I have found so far. I never noticed any hidden features on any of the earlier seasons' DVDs, but I guess I'll have to go back and check again.

Aside from that, the extras still seem a little skimpier than the previous seasons. A couple more episode commentaries would be nice at least. That, and the whole "JD's pregnant girlfriend" season ender are the only reasons for a 4 rating instead of a 5. Still some great episodes. The set also has Zach Braff's extended cut of the 100th episode "My Way Home" which was truly brilliant. Janitor mumbling "oil can!" just kills me.

I actually did not become a fan of the show until last year when it went into syndication. But I've been watching it ever since and now own all the DVDs. It's just an incredibly fun show. I do agree with some other reviewers, however, that they should concentrate more on quirky hospital/medical stories and not so much on personal soap opera. Some characters have suffered from the latter in terms of likability. There have been moments over the last couple of seasons when I really could not stand either JD or Elliot at all.

The future of Scrubs is a little fuzzy these days. The Season 6 premier didn't come until November which was a bit annoying. Also, I had read several weeks ago that the show was likely to be dropped by NBC, but that ABC was interested in picking it up for Season 7. That would not be a huge leap since the series is produced and DVDs distributed by Buena Vista/Touchstone which is owned by Disney/ABC. Not sure how that ended up.
