Tv Season Info

In the second season, J.D. (Zach Braff) settles into his residency at Sacred Heart, but his life is anything but predictable when his irresponsible brother Dan (guest star Tom Cavanagh) comes to town and Elliot (Sarah Chalke) dates nurse Paul Flowers (guest star Rick Schroder). Turk (Donald Faison) and Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) face romantic challenges of their own, as Turk tries to convince Carla (Judy Reyes) to take things to the next level, and Dr. Cox rekindles a relationship with his combative ex-wife, Jordan (Christa Miller).

After two seasons, we've reached the point at which Scrubs knows precisely what kind of show it wants to be, and is committed to delivering that on a weekly basis.

With stronger writing, larger story-arcs, and improved character development, this is where Scrubs really hit its stride.

Audience Reviews for Scrubs: Season 2

  • Aug 30, 2020
    Such an easy watch. Lots of different types of humour keeps it interesting. It also does a good job of building up the characters so that you are interested in them.
  • Jun 25, 2020
    More easy and relaxing comedy as we get to know the characters deeper
  • Feb 12, 2020
    One of the very, very few comedy shows the last couple of decades with actual laugh out loud moments. And the occational gut punch. Brilliant.
  • Nov 05, 2019
    Season 2 is not as strong as Season 1 and the formula starts to feel somewhat tired.
  • Aug 09, 2014
    Can't give this one a perfect score due to the fact that a lot of cast changes in the end didn't hold it together that well. Even if it is one of the best comedies of all time. Yes bold statement, but it really is. A truly talented cast with all hard hitters up till almost the end. That's including what was to be the 9th season revival that couldn't take off.
  • May 14, 2014
    Following the tension-filled finale of the first season, season two features more J.D. Elliot drama where they once again have sex and then stop, Dr. Cox hooking up with Jordan (leading to an unexpected surprise), Elliot dates a male nurse, and Turk proposes to Carla. Plot wise, there isn't much new here; but the show is more consistent with itself as a whole and all of the things that made the first season so successful are improved upon here. No other sitcom is as heartfelt and genuine as Scrubs is.
