Almost exactly a month ago, one of my colleagues lent me the DVD box-sets of Scrubs Series 1-7.
I remember when Scrubs first started. I was still in medical school and at the time, loads of my fellow medical students were raving about how good it was.
I never really got into it though, mainly because, as far as I can recall, it’s never been on terrestrial TV in the
I think the show is absolutely fantastic, and it’s made me laugh out loud more times than I can remember. For those who don’t know, the series basically follows three American doctors as they progress through their training from their intern year through to becoming attending physicians and beyond.
I’ve heard people say that it’s “really realistic.” I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the show bears much resemblance to every day hospital life, but it does have moments that I really recognise. Bricking it at your first cardiac arrest call, trying to make a relationship work despite the demands of the job, the frustration you feel at the patients who just won’t help themselves as well as those who you feel you’ve made a real difference to are all shown at various points.
I realise this is rapidly turning into an advert, so I’ll stop. Anyway, the DVD is calling, I’m half way through series 7 now, so I guess my normal blogging will resume shortly.
