Quick spoilers for "Scrubs" and the "Earl" finale coming right up...
A very frustrating "Scrubs," I thought. I feel like the writers put the J.D./Elliott thing permanently to rest around the time he made her dump Scott Foley, so having him get jealous again seems both tired and out of character. If it was just J.D. being envious that all of his friends and colleagues are paired off while he's still alone, that'd be one thing, but this is more Elliott-specific, and that doesn't work. Also, while I love Elizabeth Banks elsewhere, the writers haven't known what to do with her since her first appearance, so I'm not too excited to have Kim back.
Kelso as a pimp was funny, and the Old M.C. joke was one of those Letterman things that started off vaguely funny, got beaten into the ground, then somehow became funny again about 10 minutes later. Dr. Toilet, on the other hand? Never funny, especially not stretched out to a length previously reserved only for J.D.'s Floating Head Doctor fantasies. Yikes.
Meanwhile, "My Name Is Earl" ends its second season with an interesting cliffhanger: Earl's in prison (with Ralph as his cellie), with The List and his newfound adulthood all locked away from him. Does season three turn into some kind of extended "Oz" parody, do the writers do a "Galactica" time jump to Earl getting released and back to his criminal ways, or does he escape and run to Mexico to hang with John Leguizamo?
This wasn't my favorite episode of the season (though Randy's "WOO-HOO!!!! ROBBING THE DEAF!!!!" was a highlight), but I have to give Greg Garcia and the other writers props for their willingness to shake up the season one formula, to have Bad Earl occasionally creep into the present-day action, to occasionally make The List be besides the point, etc. It's been a much less predictable, and usually funnier season, even though the ratings don't reflect that. (I blame the move to 8 o'clock, a timeslot that's becoming increasingly tough on all scripted TV.)
What did everybody else think?
