SCRUBS and Yet Another Banana Hammock - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

SCRUBS and Yet Another Banana Hammock

April 18, 2008 by  


No TV watching for me last night.  But that’s ok because GMMR reader Jordan watched for me.  Here’s her two cents on last night’s episode of SCRUBS.  Here you go….***************

There is just something about Zach Braff’s hair I dislike. Not sure why. I mean, he’s no McDreamy. I must say that the opening scene was just weird and awkward, and I don’t really feel like writing about it. It involved the words “pelvic exam” and “do it without gloves.” Yikes. The basic plot rundown is this: Turk had to have a testicle removed, so he feels less manly. JD helps him through it. Kelso is getting pushed out of his job thanks to Eliot who threw a birthday party for him, thus revealing his true age. The Janitor starts a tri-daily newspaper and runs an unauthorized interview about a soft and vulnerable Dr. Cox…and then they all hang themselves.There was a ten minute point during this episode where I must have fallen asleep or something, because I am now looking at Ted in yet another banana hammock. Worse yet, I am currently eating a banana. If I have to see another banana hammock I will throw my 10” TV set out of my car window. In the car because my apartment is on the first floor and not much damage would occur. Moving car? Yeah, that would work.

The new Sarah Chalke wedgie commercial is slightly uncomfortable yet I feel a certain urge to go out and by the new wedgie free underwear. I’ve got my Hanes on now.

Eliot has a dude patient with breast cancer. The only thing I could think about was how he looked like a less cute Nathan Fillion. I then wanted to go watch either “Serenity” or “Firefly.” Both, I say! Also, Eliot and Carla hang out in the men’s restroom. Naturally.

This episode was mostly OK for me, but there were a few moments that I had to take a second look at:

The winner of this episode is most definitely Doug. He wants “Hello Kitty” toe tags for the young, dead children. No one is listening, Doug.

JD and Turk plant Turk’s testicle and produce PlantTurk . It was all kinds of creepy yet I found myself laughing hysterically. Doanld Faison wearing only a leaf? Priceless…and kind of cellulite-y.

The fact that all of Eliot’s stories (according to Kelso) end in “and then he killed himself.” I laughed at that, too. I am now going to use it.

Also, Sarah Chalke never fails to crack me up.

JD’s baby is pretty cute.

All in all, a pretty uneventful episode, unless you count the events. I miss the medical humor…well, all the humor actually. Whoops! I could get all analytical on you guys, but don’t really feel like it. Plus, not much to analyze. Pretty straight forward stuff. Instead I will just end here and say thanks to Kath for the wonderful opportunity. Pretty sure I botched the review, but it was fun nonetheless. Peace out, yo.

About Jordan…I am from the worlds smallest West Texas town and my favorite smell is laundry detergent. I have three jobs, and am a full time student. My ultimate goal in life is to play “Bohemian Rhapsody” on the guitar and piano…at the same time. In the meantime I am currently enjoying guitar lessons and substituting the game Zuma for anything resembling homework. My blog is Thanks again!

    Could the Janitor’s name be Josh? When he named the things that people called him that had some truth to it one of them was Josh. Interesting. Probably just another janitorial lie, but something to think about.

    Can I just say I love that you have reviewers for almost all my favourite shows now? Kath = awesome.

    Scrubs was just okay for me too … but The Todd (not Ted, Ted is the sad lawyer) and his banana hammock I still find hilarious. Gross, yes … but still funny.

    The kid who plays Baby Sam is almost as cute as the little boys who play Baby Jack, and the little girls who play Baby Izzy. Where do they find these adorable kids??

    And as Kevin above says … I was thinking about The Janitor’s name too, because I had read earlier this season that the writers planned to reveal it. And him listing “things he had been called”, and throwing in Josh was so fast that a lot of people may have missed it (not keen observers like Kevin and I, of course!).

    I’m quite sure that the Janitor’s name was not Josh. It was however a very funny line (to include “Josh” among a list of inslults he had been called). I also liked the Janitor spinning the paper and the ending in which the characters (well, some of them) gear up to fight for Dr. Kelso.

    Not to be picky, but Kelso says that all of Elliot’s stories end in “and then he hung himself” which is for some reason, funnier than “and then he killed himself.”
