Ben - you are very kind. I think the way Brando and I seem to approach reviews is different to the way the majority of mainstream reviews are written.
I can think of 3 types off the top of my head.
1) The fan review - which is based on a very personal likes v dislikes of what happened
2) The professional review - which talks about the actors, directors and direction of the whole show. Not usually concerned with each episode itself.
3) The mainstream review - summing things up for people who don't watch the show.
What I aim to do is to analyse each episode as a valuable piece of art in itself and judge it on what it achieved. I try to hold it to a somewhat objective standard and be fair. It seems to be a different approach to most reviewers and I'm thrilled to find people who enjoy reading that.
I think with Scrubs context is key. Season One was something very new when it started. I hadn't seen Family Guy, Arrested Development style shows yet. So Scrubs' fantasy sequences seemed like a charming new way of fleshing out JD's character. I thought the show did a great job in that first season of turning a hospital procedural drama into a fun sit com.
But I never thought it was a very funny show. Compared to how much I laughed at Frasier, Friends, Spin City etc it never came close.
I sincerely hope to get round to writing about it in the future along with many other shows
