The Best Show on TV...

...or at the very least, the best comedy on TV, is Scrubs. The cast is solid and compliments each other extremely well. In 10 years, I can see people looking at Zach Braff on Scrubs like people now do Tom Hanks on Bosom Buddies. He's got huge star potential. Two big differences between those shows. First, Scrubs is a much better, and second, the main characters are not generally dressed as women. In tonight's show, J.D. (Braff) sees his life as a sitcom, complete with a studio audience laughing at mediocre jokes and a talent show. At the end, the show goes back to normal with a cafeteria employee getting fired because of budget cuts and a patient getting bad news. It was very well done. The annoying Clay Aiken was even good as the cafeteria employee. What made me like the show even more was a friend of mine in medical school told me that Scrubs is the most realistic medical show on TV.

Scrubs is really the only show that I consciously try not to miss. It's nice to know that there is at least one good sitcom still around.
