First airing in 2001, Scrubs continued for nine seasons with 2010 being its official end. While it’s always sad to see a great comedy series call it a day it’s important to appreciate the memories that remain. At the time of writing I have watched and enjoyed seven seasons worth of Scrubs and from those experiences I have compiled what are, for me, the ten best moments. My choices contain many of Scrubs’ magical ingredients:- an obligatory rant from Dr Cox, a taste of the brilliant range of backing music and, of course, those occasions when the laughs are put to one side and the reality of hospital life hits you hard.
The ultimate band has a gifted drummer, such as Keith Moon, a breathtaking guitarist in the mould of Slash or Jimi Hendrix, and, of course, a singer with a real stage presence for instance the late greats Jim Morrison or Freddie Mercury. Scrubs put together its own version of the ultimate group but in this case it was an air band! The episode in question sees the Janitor (Neil Flynn) and Ted (Sam Lloyd), the hospital’s hopeless lawyer, trying to put together their own air band before briefly falling foul of Bob Kelso’ strict policies forbidding such acts.
By the end of the episode Kelso has relented and our brilliant air band gives us a rendition of Boston’s rock classic, “More Than A Feeling.” Delivery man, Lloyd (Mike Schwartz), makes a fine drummer, particularly donning his shorts! The janitor and Ted take up guitar duties, with the latter providing some great solo work far from befitting his general clumsiness in Sacred Heart. Finally, on vocals is Turk (Donald Faison) who combines some interesting dance moves to his miming. Music and dance feature prominently in Scrubs and this is one of the best moments of all.
Top Ten so far:-
