The doctors at Sacred Heart Hospital administer another hilarious dose of their inimitable medicine in Scrubs: The Complete Eighth Season, on DVD on August 25,
2009 and Blu-ray for the first time on November 17, 2009. The long-running show’s trademark surrealistic humor reaches a fever pitch in these 19 episodes, including the hysterical and heart-warming two-part season finale.
Nothing is sacred at Sacred Heart Hospital, where Dr. John “J.D.” Dorian (Zach Braff) has survived his internship and become attending physician while Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) has been kicked upstairs. Along with his best friends and colleagues Turk (Donald Faison), Elliot (Sarah Chalke) and Carla (Judy
Reyes), J.D. keeps things rolling at the most unpredictable medical center on television. Packed with whip-smart dialogue and wacky characters, the eighth season of Scrubs once again has audiences in stitches!
Scrubs: The Complete Eighth Season stars Zach Braff (Garden State), Sarah Chalke (“How I Met Your Mother”), Donald Faison (Next Day Air), John C. McGinley (Platoon), Judy Reyes (“Oz”), Ken Jenkins (I am Sam) and Neil Flynn (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull).
Season Eight guest stars include Elizabeth Banks (Role Models), Scott Foley (“The Unit”), Christa Miller (“The Drew Carey Show”), Thomas Cavanaugh (“Ed”), Courteney Cox (“Friends”) and Elmo (“Sesame Street”).

I have loved Scrubs since the beginning. No matter what channel or time it was on, I managed to catch up with the series (and I've thanked God for my TiVo a few times, because I couldn't catch it). Although I love J.D.'s imagination (and the hilarious montages), I love Dr. Cox and his sarcasm most of all. Some of the episodes over the years have literally left me in tears...sometimes from laughing and sometimes because the episode was so touching.
Season eight was refreshing. Any show, after so many years, has slips but in season eight the show seemed to come back to it's original hilarious roots. This and the first season are probably tied as my favorites. I believe this was intended to be the final season of the series (although I think there will be more episodes! Yay!) so a lot of the episodes seem to represent closure. Without giving away spoilers, my favorite episodes were the ones shot in the Bahamas (for the janitors wedding). I cried at the end when they aired on television. I also loved the Elmo episode.
The extras included with this DVD are amazing. Deleted scenes, webisodes, and a bonus disc of ABC shows. I love Bloopers and from this DVD they were hysterical.
If you are a fan of Scrubs, you will want this series! If you aren't a fan of Scrubs, then I don't understand you at all.
