Welcome back, kick off your shoes, find a seat and turn on our TV! This week I am going to be reviewing one of my all time favorite TV shows. Many of you may have already had the intense joy of watching a few episodes, but if you have not binged this series and seen it all the way through, you are missing out.
So, grab your remote or laptop or streaming device and start binging Scrubs.
Why I watched it.
I love doctor/medical/hospital shows: House, Grey’s Anatomy, Nip Tuck are just a few. Scrubs very possibly be my favorite, but something that helps is a silly little fact I heard a while ago. Out of all these drama hospital shows, Scrubs was reviewed as the most medically sound and correct of them all. Their episodes and shenanigans (minus the Janitor maybe) are actually all reasonably relatable and their trauma and drama are all realistic. Unlike Grey’s where the main character has been shot, drowned, confirmed dead, been in a plane crash… And lived. Not to mention the lengths the doctors get to go and the problems they face both in and out of the hospital. The creators made sure that even the medications and procedures were correct. For Scrubs, this is something I can appreciate and really bound with. It’s not a Bingeable worthy show because it’s just so outrageous and gripping, but because it is absolutely hilarious and I find myself connecting with everyone numerous times. All in all, I just loved this show. Even though I finished this saga well over a year ago, it still ranks in my top five (if not three) favorite shows of all time.
Why you should watch it.
Number one reason: Scrubs is a funny show. You will laugh through the entire series. And even by the time you get to the final season (which goes insanely down hill), you still make it through just to see where everyone ends up and how it goes. You connect with the characters and love watching their silly yet emotional lives play out. Also, another thing I can appreciate is that some of the patients actually die. This isn’t like (most) House episodes where J.D. solves everything and save every one. Some of the episodes get pretty gritty and sad. If you’re anything like me, you’ll fall in love with the comedy, connect with the emotion, and get sucked into the drama
Where to watch it.
I have recently found the new streaming site Solar Movie and was not disappointed. I wouldn’t recommend it versus Netflix, but if you don’t have an account there, check out Solar! But, as usual, Netflix carries all nine seasons in perfect quality.
How long it will take.
The answer is 67 hours. If you start now you can possibly finish this entire series by the time this long, holiday weekend ends. This challenge is only for the truly dedicated bingers though.
Even just writing this and thinking of Dr. Cox and the Janitor makes me chuckle. If there was one show I demand you all to watch here at Ordinary Adventures, it would be this one.
