Scrubs: Season 9 - Rotten Tomatoes

Scrubs: Season 9 (2009-2010)




Critic Consensus: With symptoms like an influx of rookie cast members that never gel into a watchable ensemble and a comedic sensibility that feels terminally tired, the diagnosis is that creator Bill Lawrence and co. should have hung up their Scrubs a year earlier.

Tv Season Info

The ninth and final season signals a major departure for the show. J.D. (Zach Braff), Turk (Donald Faison) and Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) move to a teaching hospital and share their wisdom with a batch of new interns: the painfully blunt Denise (Eliza Coupe); Lucy (Kerry Bishé), who takes over narrating duties from J.D.; med-school burnout Drew (Michael Mosley); and rich kid Cole (Dave Franco). Though the show's focus shifted to the new interns in Season 9, all members of the original cast made appearances with the exception of Judy Reyes.

At this point, Scrubs has turned its original style into a formula; the fantasy sequences are more predictable, the earnest denouements are automatic. It's a good formula, but one that's no longer vibrant.

The transplant is unlikely to produce a dramatic rally. But it does give friends and family a reason to keep visiting.

It's a solid little comedy, in which Scrubs fans can recognize the spirit of the show they loved, even if it's not Scrubs at its best.

A change of scenery has done Scrubs a world of good.

It wants to be something more profound than a cheesy sitcom, but everything's on the surface.

Saying goodbye to Scrubs for the third time was not nearly as hard as the first two times. And that's not to say we haven't been enjoying season nine, aka Scrubs med school, because once this series reboot found its stride, it's been good.
