Scrubs is one TV series that cannot be easily forgotten because of its humorous content and wonderful storyline well interpreted and performed by its brilliant casts. Though it pretty much graced our TV screen from October 2, 2001 up until March 17th, 2010 I can say that there are still some episodes from the TV series which we can simply watch again without getting bored.
We all love a good comedy show and when scrubs made its sunny appearance on our TV screen, we all fell in love with the show owning to the charismatic performance of its protagonist Zach Braff.
A brilliant work created by Bill Lawrence that pretty much gave lots of viewers something to really talk about. It is still that show that had a strong hold on our emotions and that is really saying something.
The series which follows the lives of employees at the fictional Sacred Heart Hospital which later became a Teaching Hospital and seeing John “J.D” Dorian coming in as a fresh intern played by our star actor Zach Braff.
It focused on the unique point of view of the main character and narrator John Michael “J. D” Dorian (Zach Braff) all through the eight seasons but made a switch in season nine when Lucy Bennett (Kerry Bishe) played the main character and narrator.
