Season eight of the phenomenally witty, brilliantly written show House follows Dr. House as he deals with the repercussions of what he did to Cuddy. Once out of jail, House has to adjust to life with Foreman in charge and a one man team. Eventually, he scams the system and Taub and Chase return to the team permanently along with the new additions of Dr. Adams and Dr. Park. thirteen makes a brief appearance along with all of the older cast members (aside form Cuddy) in the absolutely stellar series finale. In usual House fashion, this season features a series of smaller plots and climaxes with one epic plot twist over the last four episodes (Wilson being diagnosed with cancer). This season was better than the last, and because of the finale, I'm forced to say that it's the second best season of the entire series (season one being first). With the ending, we realize that the entire show was really about House and Wilson's relationship and House's gradual transformation into a better person. His last words from inside the burning building ring true as he says "You're right... But I can change", which is followed by the hauntingly surreal piano measure. Incredible ending to an Incredible show. My ranking of seasons (from best ot worst) is 1, 8, 5, 4, 2, 3, 7, 6
In the tenth and final season of Friends, the friends finally start to move apart from each other. This season features Chandler and Monica getting there babies, Joey and Rachel's horrible relationship, Phoebe and Mike getting married, and the phenomenal finale where Rachel and Ross get together. This season is fantastic, just like all the others, but the finale deserves special mention. Aside from the season eight finale of Scrubs and the HIMYM finale, this is the best finale in television history. There's so much emotion and so many things thrown in for the fans that it's hard not to cry while watching it.
Season nine of Friends is the first season that focuses primarily on Phoebe's love life and her relationship with Mike, who eventually proposes to her. This season also features Ross and Rachel's living situation, and all of the humor that comes from it, and Monica's attempt to get pregnant after discovering the heartbreaking news that she most likely can't conceive naturally. Another season, another smash hit.
The eighth season of Friends chronicles the aftermath of Chandler and Monica's wedding, Rachel's pregnancy, and Joey's crush on Rachel. Like all of Friends, this season is hilarious, albeit redundant, and fantastic overall. These later seasons start to get a little repetitive, but they're still episodes of the first great sitcom on television and worth watching every second of.
Season seven of Friends follows Chandler and Monica's engagement, culminating in there wedding, and the rest of the gang's relationships with each other and people they get involved with. Since it's a Friends season, it's hard to mentally separate episodes in this season from ones in other seasons, but I'm pretty sure that this season is one of the weaker ones overall. That being said, it's still a phenomenal season of television.
The sexth season of Friends starts with Ross and Rachel's drunken marriage and ends with Chandler proposing to Monica after having moved in together beforehand. Just like every Friends season, it's nearly impossible to distinguish episodes in this season from others aside form Rachel's hair style and the current living situation, and like all the other seasons, it's incredible overall.
Season seven of House primarily follows the tumultuous romantic relationship between House and Cuddy. It also follow's Taub and his wife's relationship, Cuddy's child, and Seventeen's life struggles. This season is substantially better than the sixth and gets back into the typical House rhythm that's made the show so fantastic thus far. It's not as good as some of the earlier seasons, but it's definitely an enjoyable right. This season also features an incredible last three episodes, which up until last season was a requirement for House seasons. This one features House trying an experimental drug that goes horribly wrong and his inability to cope with his breakup with Cuddy. It also follows House's attempt to recruit a new member to replace Thirteen on his team, eventually settling on the highly moral Masters.
Season five of Friends is basically spent covering for Monica and Chandler's new relationship. As different people find out, it becomes more and more dramatic, until finally Ross discovers the truth and flips out. Like all the seasons before it, this one is incredible. Watch it.
Season four chronicles Ross and Emily's relationship primarily up to there wedding, where Rachel somewhat interferes. This season is just as incredible as the others and I'd recommend it highly.
The third season of Friends plays out just like the others, incredibly. Rachel and Ross' relationship plays center stage in this season as they eventually breakup (or "take a break" if you're team Ross). Everything about this season is good, just like all the other Friend seasons, and i highly recommend watching it.
Season two is every bit as good as the rest of Friends, but I rated it slightly higher because of Ross and Rachel's relationship blooming and Eddie's arrival, which is absolutely hilarious. Other than that, Monica's relationship with Richard is a major subplot. This is my favorite Friends season overall, but it's not much better than the other ones. I highly recommend watching the whole series.
the first season of the original best sitcom on television (Seinfeld's got nothing on Friends), Friends is so phenomenal overall that I'm not sure what to say here... The characters are so well written and the conflict is so real that it just flows so naturally. This show (like Scrubs) is impossible to differentiate the seasons from each other, so I my ratings may not directly reflect the specific season I'm reviewing, but more so the show as a whole. Bottom line, watch this show.
Season nine of Scrubs is an abomination of the highest Caliber. Nothing in the first eight seasons justifies making this aside from greed and profit. Dr. Cox and Turk and the only recurring characters in every episode (that are in the first eight seasons), and they are shells of there former selves. There is one redeeming moment in this season (Dr. Cox falling through the ceiling), and other than that, it's all average... All that being said, it's not necessarily a bad season, it's just horrendously bad compared to the rest of this fantastic series.
Season eight, which is the final season for all intents and purposes, is an incredible upgrade from the seventh and held together by two, two part episodes (My Finale, My Soul On Fire). Aside from those episodes, this season is surprisingly mundane, but those two episodes, especially My Finale, are so incredible that they raise the overall rating of this season tenfold. The finale of scrubs is, without question, the best episode in the history of sitcoms, possibly of all shows. The way they wrapped up this series was so phenomenal that it still makes me cry every time I watch it.
Season seven is the first not perfect season of Scrubs, which is probably why it's only eleven episodes long. This season features all of the characters growing up and moving on from the generic positions they've had in past seasons. The only major plot point of this season is that Dr. Kelso is forced to retire. This season is still definitely worth watching and still has all of the earmarks of classic Scrubs, but without the heart.
Season six of Scrubs is the last complete season Scrubs has to offer with all of the life lessons and humor of the classic Scrubs; unfortunately, it's just gotten a bit old at this point. This season is all about parenting, whether it be Turk and Carla's baby, J.D. and Kim's pregnancy, or Dr. Cox and Jordan's kid. This is yet another classic Scrubs season, but with less sizzle than previous ones.
Season five is perhaps the best Scrubs has to offer with the best episode of the series short of the finale (My Lunch). This season focuses on J.D.'s relationship with Dr. Cox and less about Elliot, who changed hospitals only to change back. Turk and Carla also focus on having a baby. Everything that made Scrubs what it is is still in this season, but perhaps it's just getting a bit stale. Without major mix-ups of the cast structuring, it all gets redundant eventually. Still incredible television though.
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.
Season three of Scrubs is more of the same, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Incredibly difficult to tell apart, season three resembles the phenomenal season two to a T, except with slightly different plot points. In this season, J.D. and Elliot are crushing on each other (what else is new), J.D. starts dating Jordan's sister Dani and Elliot dates Sean. Eventually, Elliot realizes she's in love with J.D. and leaves sean, only to discover that once he had her, J.D. didn't want her. Dr. Cox also starts crushing on Dr. Miller. Basically, this is just another flawless season of one of the best sitcoms ever made. Watch it.
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.
