What I'm Watching: Scrubs (Season Premiere)

Scrubs: Season 7, Episode 1 "My Own Worst Enemy" (B+)

This is a welcome return of a beloved series which I have always enjoyed. Everything seems to have come full-circle now since the show's inception. One of the show's strongest points has always been its nicknames for characters (best exemplified in the season one episode "My Nickname"). Snoop Dogg Resident, sorry, Snoop Dogg Intern and Colonel Doctor were just two of the unforgettable but unnamed characters. Now Dr. Beardface (that's beard-fa-say!) gets a chance to take the spotlight and be tormented by everyone in the hospital. It is great that the janitor's girlfriend is actually named "Lady", and that whole plotline should play out well with J.D. As I have said before, this show always comes through in the end with dramatic material, and this final season should be full of great stuff with J.D. and Elliott and their uncertain love lifes.
