I am a huge fan of Scrubs. Even before it was on ABC. The entire nine seasons were produced by ABC Studios, even before it was brought on as a mid-season replacement in 2008.
The loss of JD in more than half of the episodes is felt in the style of the show. There is a new character introduced, that plays a female version of JD, that offers a whimsical look at med school a la JD but she is missing a Turk character to bounce off. The season is really missing its heart.
I still enjoyed the 13 episodes of the ninth season. When you reach the second disc, you have bonded with the new characters and you start looking forward to their various forays into their medical education. Dr. Turk and Dr. Cox take over most of the comedy responsibility and their characters are perfect.
I wouldn’t start with this set, especially since it had been cancelled with only 13 episodes. It is a great ending to an amazing series.
