Scrubbin' It Up

Posted By on Thu, Feb 1, 2007 at 9:45 PM

What has happened to Scrubs? First the strangely horrible musical episode, and then tonight, a weirdly political and timely episode involving the Iraq war and the inner dialogue of Dr. Kelso. The only even remotely funny thing was that salt and pepper shaker made out of a dead rabbit (and I instantly thought, dead rabbitt=metaphor for what the show has become). Now, I'm all for exploding our little fantasy that the world is just peachy keen, and I'll readily admit that television is just part of the machinery of manufacturing consent, but c'mon, oh esteemed writers of Scrubs! If I'm already watching, I at least want SOME kind of escape! Can't you at least make your political commentary funny? Is that too much to ask?
