Critic Reviews for Scrubs: Season 5

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The fifth season was produced under the belief that the show's audience was as big as it was ever going to get, and that emboldened the writers to reach increasingly bizarre heights.

Arguably, Season 5 isn't as sharp as some of the earlier seasons, when the characters' peculiarities were fresh and new.

November 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

No sitcom has really ever mixed comedy with poignancy as well as Scrubs has. It was a show set against the backdrop of life-and-death stakes, and it was often the deaths of patients that would bring out the best in Scrubs.

To fans of the series: enjoy the show; while not every episode is perfect, the ones that are make you remember why you started watching the show in the first place.

September 4, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Even with the raised stakes in this fifth season, the sharp writing and casting continue to keep Scrubs out of the emergency room.

October 18, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

All of Scrubs' weirdness works because the actors are so game.
