    Scrubs was a nice change of pace from CNN! I thought it was one of most hilarious episodes to come out in a while. The 5 yr old kid breast feeding and giving Dr. Cox the thumbs up was the best! and I loved the intro scene between TCM and JD. And how bout the kid that puked on command!! muahahaha

    The softer/resolution of issues side was real good too.

    Yes, great show last night!

    Like someone else said a while back, this show can really run the full range of emotions and make it feel so natural. I went from laughing my head off, to feeling alone, to being grossed out by the breast feeding, to laughing again. All in about 4 seconds.

    Yes, it was a great show. I just happened upon it while channel surfing and I'm glad I did.

    But what's up with NBC and their really annoying scroll. Their little NBC "doo-doo-doo" muted the dialog when it came on and I missed some lines. [​IMG] Worse than bugs!

    The NBC in D.C. ran the new one (thank goodness as it WAS great), but the Friends episode before Scrubs was the most recent Christmas episode.

    Strange...

    NBC is milking "Must See TV" with a mix of repeats and new episodes among their Thursday night lineup. During sweeps in February, Scrubs and Good Morning, Miama didn't air all 4 weeks, so there's "excess" new episodes, so now we get the new episodes for those shows, while getting repeats for Friend and Will & Grace. ER is also going the new/repeat cycle on a week-to-week basis to stretch out the season.

    Oh, loved this week's Scrubs episode. It's quite amazing how many laughs they can pack in 22 minutes while also uncovering the layers of relationship dynamics and also show the decency of JD at the cost of some sure thing nookie because of his sense of honor.

    Patrick: good point about the repeat/new episode mix strategy. Hopefully May will be full of all new episodes on Thursdays.
