I’m not exactly sure what season I first started watching Scrubs in, but I’m going to guess somewhere around 1 or 2.
The first episode I watched I hated.
I’m sure it had something to do with the mood that I was in, because it wasn’t but a matter of weeks (or months) before I walked in on a marathon of Scrubs watching at the old Klan bachelor pad and fell in love. Since that fateful moment, I have followed the show with bated breath.
I was definitely sad when I heard that the show was ending, and while the final episode was supremely awesome, I was even more sad after watching it.
Then came along what I will henceforth call the “bonus” season, which was aptly titled Scrubs med school.
This bonus season was definitely not as good as regular Scrubs, but I have been perfectly fine with that. The bonus served a much greater and more important purpose than continuing the legacy of Scrubs. It served to dull the pain of the end of 8 great years.
As the bonus season progressed the loss of the familiar faces, and my particular loss of interest, helped to ease me in to a world where JD and Turk would never again share their guy love in my living room.
This bonus season, while nothing in comparison to the real thing, has made me okay with the end. For that fact alone, I consider it a success.
