  • This is the one you've all been asking for. Scrubs.
    Ever since I started my medical training in 2007 all of my friends have been telling me that I MUST watch the TV show Scrubs but for some reason, I was always a little hesitant to start it. Maybe because I looked at medicine as a serious field, it didn't make sense to watch a comedy about it.

    Well, now I am taking your advice and watching the first episode ever of the medical drama. Although I think this show is less of a medical drama is more of a medical comedy or satire. I can see why many medical professionals enjoy this show because working many hours in the hospital system can leave you feeling frustrated at times,

    Now, as far as my opinion goes I have to be honest. This show is not as appealing to me as it is for most of my friends. I feel like they take easy shots at medicine and exaggerate a lot for the sake of humor (especially Zach Braff ) Not sure why, but the humor didn't land for me that often. I also think I would probably need to watch a few more episodes as the pilot is rarely the best one. Also, Zach Braff irritates me just a little a bit in his acting.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy this episode of Real Doctor Watches Scrubs / Real Doctor Reacts to Scrubs. If you want me to continue making this medical drama review series please like the video and leave me a comment on which tv drama show or episode you'd like for me to review next. Love you all!

    Doctor is the last thing I want to be, I cannot bear the thought of shouldering such a heavy responsibility

    Much respect for all of the doctors out there! 👍

    I wanted to be a doctor ever since I was a small child. I even started pre-med courses in college. It was a episode of scrubs that actually changed my mind. I can't remember the name of the episode but it was one where JD basically had a rival who's quite frankly better than him, smarter, nicer, the whole deal. Well that doctor had a child patient that throughout the episode, the nurse would update him on the condition of the child. "Okay no problem just give him (insert medicine name and dosage)." Long story short, he comes to the realization that that child is going to die and it's nothing he can do and breaks down crying and quits. Then, I knew there's no way I could emotionally handle telling someone, especially a child, that they are going to die.

    I think it hasn’t even been a year since I last watched this show and I already wanna watch again. Scrubs is just such a classic.

    Too bad you didn't like Scrubs. I absolutely loved the show, regardless of its medical authenticity (I'm not in a medical field so inaccurate medical stuff just flies right on by me).

    Comedy is all about exaggeration. Your actual first night on call probably had zero laughs and zero pratfalls, but for comedy's sake, everything about it was exaggerated in the show and became funny.

    I guess it's like any other profession - you can't suspend disbelief enough to enjoy it if you're so intimately familiar with all of the details. Cops seldom enjoy cop shows, lawyers seldom enjoy lawyer shows, soldiers seldom enjoy military shows, and doctors seldom enjoy medical shows. Not never, mind you - just seldom.

    I know nothing about medicine, however some of the things Dr. Mike says honestly I kind of already knew due to the simple fact I’ve visited enough doctors and hospitals.

    I work in the ER at a Children's hospital and all I do is get basic info and insurance info from the parents. But yo, let me tell you, trying to get that sort of stuff from a parent whose child just died, not fun at all. So I cant imagine what it's like to be a doctor having to TELL the parents the child is dead

    Dear Doctor Mike, please get a shirt a size or two larger. Looking like you're wearing a woman's XXS shirt makes you look ridiculous. There's fitted, and then there's looking like you took someone's laundry by accident.
