SynopsisScrubs makes us discover the hospital through the eyes of John Dorian, alias “JD” (called Bizut or Joséphine), young recently graduate doctor at the commencement of the series, just like his joint tenant, the surgeon Chris Turk (called Ganhdi or turkelton). They are accompanied in their first steps by their colleagues Elliot Reid (called Barbie), brilliant young woman but neurotic, and by Carla Espinosa, nurse with the sturdy character which does not leave indifferent Turk.
JD is quickly a mentor in the person of Dr. Perry Cox, whose perpetual bad mood and the Dépendance with work dissimulate the incapacity to manage its personal life; this one is the principal rampart of the patients and the interns against the cynicism of the director of the Sacré-coeur ( Sacred Heart ), the mielleux one and tyrannical Dr. Robert “Bob” Kelso.

It jealous Turk because it is in love with the Carla nurse. He loves and hates his ex-wife who is one of the rare people insensitive with her threats and her insults. Dr. Cox launches out besides very often in interminable monologs during which he insults the person who is opposite him and does not cease recalling to which point the things which surround it the indifferent one. Dr. Cox is in fact a good man who refuses to show his sensitivity and always tries to escape happiness. Its behavior is summarized very well in the relation which it maintains with JD, for which it shows only contempt whereas it could not do without him.

CommentsWith the wire of the episodes, Scrubs develops a single mixture of daftness and sensitivity. The character of Janitor, the man of maintenance which treats JD as scapegoat without reason, is typical humor of the series.
Turned in a true abandoned hospital and without recorded laughter, the sitcom also evokes more serious subjects like the report/ratio with died and the disease, the relations doctor-patient, or the difficulties of making a success of of face its career and its private life.
To note that Bill Lawrence is also the creator of the series Spin City . Various actors of the series appear besides in Scrubs in a recurring way, such Michael J. Fox, Alan Ruck, Richard Kind, Heather Locklear, Michael Boatman and Alexander Chaplin.
OriginalityThe series follows the personal life and professional of these characters working to the hospital of the Sacred Heart (Sacred Heart Hospital), a CHU located in an unspecified city of the South-west of the United States. The series puts in scene a narration at the first nobody, extremely talkative characters, secondary intrigues which intersect, of the cascades, and the surrealist scenes which represent the daydreams of the characters. These comic aspects are compensated by poignant scenes dealing with the difficulties for the doctors of managing the death and the problems of their personal life. This combination of comic and dramatic elements distinguishes it from other series, such as Urgences .
Contrary to the majority of the sitcoms, Scrubs is carried out with only one camera (rather than two cameras in field-reverse shot). There is no recorded laughter which generally punctuates the televised comedies. The series is structured around several intrigues on the same topic, connected by the Voice-over of the main character and narrator John “J.D.” Dorian. At the end of each episode, J.D. summarizes the morals or the topic of the history, in a succession of plans which generally shows how that affects each character.
The series is also famous for the frequent presence of guest stars, in particular of Acteur S of cinema who generally do not appear in televised series. For example, the Irish actor Colin Farrell appears in the episode 14, season 4 (in the role of: Billy Callahan).
MusicSometimes the music takes an important place in Scrubs. In season 6, an episode musical My , is entirely devoted to the music. In this episode, a patient, after a fall does not intend the people to speak but to sing. Major the part of the episode is filmed from its point of view. Thus all the actors sing in the episode.
The series has even its own choral society: the quartet of Ted made up of employees of the administration of the hospital appears in the first season and fact of the regular appearances in songs has cappella often ridiculous in their context.
The song I' m No Superman of Lazlo Bane is used as credits with the series.
