Scrubs: The Complete First Season

It's always easy to blame the big bad network when a good TV show fails to find its audience, but in the case of creator Bill Lawrence's criminally underwatched NBC laffer "Scrubs," there really is no other plausible suspect.

It’s always easy to blame the big bad network when a good TV show fails to find its audience, but in the case of creator Bill Lawrence’s criminally underwatched NBC laffer “Scrubs,” there really is no other plausible suspect.

Based on the evidence — a lovingly constructed DVD collection of the show’s first-season episodes — it’s clear that, even from the start, this was a comedy that knew exactly what it wanted to say, and never took any shortcuts to earn its many, many laughs.

Two featurettes — “Not Just Another Hospital Show” and “Newbies” — are well-executed behind-the-scenes looks that offer actual insight into the show, rather than the usual exercise in ego stroking. There are also commentaries and deleted scenes. The best news of all? Unlike “Freaks and Geeks” or “Undeclared,” “Scrubs” managed to survive beyond its first season — and that means more DVD compilations are on the way.
