Ah Scrubs. We used to love it, but then we had to PH it. It just wasn't so consistently funny anymore. Still, it definitely deserved a better send off than that twisted fairy tale mess of a "series finale" that aired on NBC, but I wasn't entirely looking forward to its return, especially if it was going to deliver more lackluster episodes. There's not much I hate more than shows that just don't know when to quit. However, the two episode premiere (on its new network) actually won me over, and made me remember why I used to enjoy this show in the first place. Here's why...
The folks over at Scrubs are reportedly delighted to finally have a network that takes them seriously. The move from NBC to ABC has resulted in all kinds of fancy star treatment like set visits from the network (this had apparently never once happened at NBC, according to creator Bill Lawrence, which seems awfully rude of them), and now, to get you hyped for the show's mid-season ABC premiere, the network has ponied up the dough for six webisodes, set to premiere this fall.
Zach Braff changes in his doctor's scrubs for a pair of wings in Oz the Great and Powerful, the Sam Raimi-directed Wizard of Oz prequel that opens in theaters on Friday. The former Scrubs star actually pulls double duty in the film, starting out as the human friend and accomplice of carnival-huckster-turned-(fake) wizard Oscar Diggs and then transforming into a flying monkey (don't worry, he's the friendly kind) when the action shifts to the merry old land of Oz. Braff spoke with us about his simian alter ego, working with the director of Spider-Man and the connection between the Oz franchise and a short film from his distant past.
