Well, I will admit, I was more than a bit sad when I heard that NBC was canceling one of my most favorite TV shows scrubs. I had seen the writing on the walls for quite some time so I wasn't overly surprised when they did it. They had been moving the show around a lot, starting the new episodes at odd times, and, if I remember right, it was put up against some pretty tough competition.

It was only by chance that I learned that ABC had picked it up - what a great decision. No wonder why NBC is having so much trouble... The Office can only take them so far!! The new Scrubs episodes basically picked up right where NBC left off. The Chief of Medicine is now Cortney Cox (yay!! and I didn't even watch friends) and the same hilarity that made me love it is, of course, still there.

Aside from how funny it is, I love how most of the shows have a moral message. One of the new episodes spoke about how even doctors are afraid of death / dying but they can't show it because they have to keep a strong face in front of terminal patients. Other great messages have included how friends (should) always have your back, not everything in life is 'fun', and yes even dysfunctional families love each other.

I'm not sure if I'll post about it again, but I do know that I'll be watching it each time that it is on. So much for thining out my TV watching! I guess there is always next season to thin the herd.... maybe.

I also am a big fan of the show. Not suprised about the change, but as I often fear change, I'm not sure about Courtney Cox instead of Ken Jenkins. That guy is hilarious. Air America anyone? Oh yeah!
