My Complete Life (Well, Sort Of)

October 9, 2007

scrubsmusical.jpgYou see what I did with the title of this post, here? I titled it in a similar fashion to how each episode of Scrubs is titled. And to know me is to know that Scrubs is my end-all-be-all favorite television show. How a guy that digs shows like Star Trek and old episodes of Land of the Lost comes out with a comedy(yet, often poignant) set in a hospital as his all-time favorite show is anybody’s guess — but it is. As for the meaning of this post’s title… Well, as of yesterday, I can officially declare that I’ve seen every episode of Scrubs.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “If Scrubs is Dan’s all-time favorite show how come he hasn’t seen every episode before yesterday?” For some reason I missed the seventh episode of the sixth season (which originally aired on 01/18/07 — so I’m guessing maybe it had something to do with my girlfriend’s birthday) called “My Musical.” I don’t have Tivo (hooked up, anyway) and I didn’t download it off of the internet. To be honest, I wasn’t all that heartbroken about missing the episode. The fact that they were doing a “musical” episode put me off a bit. It was something that I thought I was probably not going to dig all that much. I’m not going to claim that every single episode of Scrubs is gold, but pound for pound, television doesn’t get any better in my opinion.

But last night I caught a syndicated airing of the episode “My Musical” and whatever fears or hesitations that I had regarding the episode were tossed aside. Episode 607 won’t go down in my journal (the one with the horse that has a sword coming out of his forehead — not a unicorn) as my all-time favorite episode of my all-time favorite television series. But, it also won’t go down as the episode that turned me off of Scrubs.

By the way, Scrubs seventh and final season premieres on Thursday, October 25th. “Final” season… It’s going to be a bittersweet 07-08 television season for yours truly.
