Scrubs Turns 100

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

All these freelance articles that I wrote in different weeks are coming out at once. Today, if you're interested, I have a feature for Variety on Scrubs, which celebrates its 100th episode tonight.

Excellent read - not a big fan of scrubs but enjoy it occasionally. Great writing.

I've been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now and really enjoy the insight and information. Up till now I've been reluctant to comment, mainly because I don't quite have the Sabermetric knowledge to back up my opinions...

Ironically, your Scrubs article finally tipped me to register and post (which I'm loathe to do these days). It's great to see an intelligent and a clearly dedicated baseball person write about varied and interesting topics - I love Scrubs and the Michael Bluth reference. Your post early in Jan about the winter blues also struck a chord with me.

Your blog makes it easier for me to argue to my wife that 1 hr/day on the computer is not too much time to be spending reading about the Dodgers.
Great work, great blog - keep it up!

Big fan of Scrubs, and even bigger fan of your blog. Keep up the good work. By the way, the Wizard of Oz (100th?) episode last night was one of the best i've seen. I hope someone who wouldn't normally watch scrubs got a chance to see it beause of your article.

Good article, Jon. I was wondering if anyone would care to comment on the new season? I haven't been able to see any of this season's episodes. I thought the show was devolving into a bit of self-parody toward the second half of last season, and it didn't seem as fresh. Not as many laugh-out-loud, guffaw moments as the first three seasons. Part of that has to do with the narrative arc of the doctors, I suppose, since they're not wide-eyed interns anymore.

But I remember an interview with Lawrence over the summer where he basically said he'd do whatever they wanted since they were sick of NBC jerking them around in terms of time slot and such. So I was looking forward to the new season.
