What I'm Watching: Scrubs

Scrubs: Season 7, Episode 8 “My Manhood” (B)

It’s clear they’re just cycling through old plotlines on this show but there are enough small new things that liven up this episode to make it pretty worthwhile. Turk’s missing testicle-induced testosterone drive is fun but also drives home the deepness of J.D. and Turk’s friendship. I understand that Kelso wants Elliot’s help but his whole ruse with the cell phone and the unnecessary flashback (a plot device I find thoroughly distracting and inappropriate on shows like this) seem too much like a way of filling up time in the episode. The Janitorial and the Janitor’s making up interviews style is really great and definitely my favorite part of this episode.
