Tv Season Info

In the fourth season, J.D. (Zach Braff) completes his residency, though it does little to change his relationship with Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley), and is still on the outs with Elliot (Sarah Chalke) after their disastrous coupling. But it's not all bad news—he dates the upbeat and quirky psychiatrist Molly Clock (guest star Heather Graham). Turk (Donald Faison) and Carla (Judy Reyes), meanwhile, adjust to life as newlyweds, and Dr. Cox and Jordan (Christa Miller) learn something surprising about their divorce. Notable guest stars checking in to Sacred Heart this season include Molly Shannon, Matthew Perry, Colin Farrell and Clay Aiken.

Critic Reviews for Scrubs Season 4

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (0)

Up until this point, Scrubs had raised the bar each and every year, and while the series didn't exactly fall on its face in season four, it didn't reach new heights either.

Oct 31, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Thankfully, Scrubs has never lost its edge, or its ability to hold up a comedic mirror to our real-world problems.

Audience Reviews for Scrubs: Season 4

  • Jul 14, 2020
    Great season but wouldnt expect anything different from scrubs
  • 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.
  • 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
    Season four picks up exactly where the last one left off and is just as incredible. This season marks the final year of J.D. and Elliot's residency and follows Turk and Carla's marital troubles, Elliot's relationship with J.D. and his brother, J.D.'s relationship with Dr. Molly Clock, and the tension between J.D. and Elliot. In the end, Elliot gets a job offer from another hospital, which threatens to tear there group apart. This season, like all seasons, blends together flawlessly with the other seasons, so I can't be sure about my rating of this specific one; but it stands to reason that it would more than likely be top notch.
