Last night the first two new episodes of Scrubs aired on ABC (yes, they've moved if you didn't know).
Before watching them, I browsed their website, and in a video segment with the show's creator Bill Lawrence (I think is his name?), he talked about his focus for what could very well be the last year of the show (and I'm reading either way will be Zach Braff's final year, so no more JD).
He said that he felt the last season (or so?) on NBC wasn't the best the show could be (and he'd be right IMO), and that he wanted to bring it to ABC so that he could take the show back to its roots and go out as good as ever. He said that meant less (I forget his term so I'll pick one) over-the-top or really "out there" humor, and more drama, as the show was (more or less) it's first couple or so years.
After watching the first two episodes of season 8, I have to say that I think they're on the right track to do what Lawrence wants to do with the end of the show. I did feel more like I was watching a season 2 episode rather than a season 7 episode, and it felt like a better show again as a result.
Anyone else watch? I hope it carries this throughout the season because I think if it does it really will go out strong.
