In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, SCRUBS creator Bill Lawrence revealed that he wanted NBC to feel stupid for letting the show jump ship to ABC. Well, Mr. Lawrence, we’ve got two words for you, “Steak Night!”… err, sorry… “Mission Accomplished!”
For last night’s back-to-back episodes of SCRUBS (which this TV Addict just had the pleasure of catching up on thanks to the magic that is ABC.com) was a welcome return to form for the series that has yet to meet a fantasy sequence it couldn’t run into the ground. In fact, thanks to the perfect combination of laugh-out-loud moments (Again, did you see that “Steak Night” dance? In all seriousness, somebody get Turk on DANCING WITH THE STARS!) and emotional heartfelt ones that give the likes of GREY’S ANATOMY and ER a run for their money. Bill Lawrence and company proved that not only is SCRUBS far from on life support — but remains, after eight seasons no less — one of the funniest and most enjoyable half hours on television.
(Fingers crossed Mr. Lawrence doesn’t go ahead and ruin it all by bringing back Nurse Roberts as a sexy ghost!)
