    Forget Scrubs. This is potentially more alarming

    Although I guess Arthur Fonzerelli was kinda a precursor to Tucker Max.

    Oh I love that argument. "You don't like it? You probably just didn't get it lololol"

    You're smarter than that dude, come up with something that isn't common use on Yahoo Answers.

    Dethtoll, Scrubs became an unfunny cancer after about the third season but prior to that it was an effectively written comedy drama with some good cast interactions.

    Everyone says that, so I watched a few S1 episodes and it was only marginally more tolerable.

    Oh fuck off you're being a twit today. I'm entitled to not like something god fucking damn it and I don't need to justify it to you or anyone else. And when you go off on this smoking-jacket "you just didn't get it" nonsense I want to give you a yellow bruise. Come back when you can come to terms with the fact that I don't like Scrubs. Though I don't really expect you to since most other Scrubs fans can't handle it either.

    I think when dismissing something - heck, anything - it helps to have a subjective frame of reference as to what comedy you do like. I'm not going to say all of Scrubs is funny, it's annoyingly mainstream in its sensibilities and can be maddeningly dumb, but it definitely has some great high points.

    Except I'm not going down that road because the last time I did I was accused of only liking rape, pedophilia and hate speech. Comedy is such serious fucking business, jesus christ

    Engaging in discussion to dismiss without giving any real justification or comparative frame of reference is just trolling then, isn't it?

    So I have to say "I don't like Scrubs because it's not like TV Show X" or I'm trolling? Is that what you're saying? Despite the fact that I explained why I don't like Scrubs?

    What the fuck is it with this fucking stupid shitpile of a show that gets so many peoples' panties in a twist when someone says they don't like it? Jesus Christ.

    Calm down, mate. I didn't say you were trolling, I said that if you're going to dismiss something out of hand without giving much justification (I missed your "egocentric wash" etc post) or without providing a frame of reference for a show that you think does it (whatever you think the show fails at, say) well, then it doesn't add a lot to the conversation.

    Personally I think Scrubs is pretty shit these days, but I certainly don't get my panties in enough of a wad to consider it a "cancer" of comedy.

    The order of funniest shows on at the moment:

    1. (The Thick of It) << in brackets because its not on right now, but is ALWAYS number 1.
    2. The Big Bang Theory
    3. Better Off Ted
    4. Scrubs
    5. Community
    6. How I Met Your Mother

    So there.
    I seem to be in a Craig Ferguson love-fest at the moment, sofar this week i've watched every one of his late late shows this week. Plus, the guy worked with Peter Capaldi so he instantly gets a few notches above the other late night hosts.

    Wait, dethtoll doesn't like Scrubs? I'm shocked, I say! Shocked! Okay, not that shocked.

    Oh well, your loss.

    Okay, if we're going to talk about TV worth laughing at, I just watched the X-Files episode "War of the Coprophages." I love the Mytharc and the Monster-of-the-Week episodes equally, but it's comedy episodes like this one that bring me the most joy.

    With Alby turning gay and having visions of his dead father, Roman, back from the dead purely to berate him, it seems like Big Love is turning into a Polygamist Six Feet Under.

    Any list of good comedy television that omits 30 rock is criminal. Also, for the few episodes each season when they turn on the funnies, South Park remains brutally hilarious.

    I caught a bit of Payback, Gibson version, the other night. Couldn't really say if it was a good film or not as I didn't watch it all but the mood was good and it just reminded me how crap Max Payne was.

    I tried to watch Caprica but can't really get into even the 1st episode. Everything is just like Earth and its just too far-fetched, for me, for them to have trains that are the same, cars that have the same dashboards and so on.

    The final nail was the frakking cello in that girl's room.

    I suppose I'll try again and Stoltz does after all do the tortured look so well. Eric Stoltz and Eddie Murphy - my picks for the next Bond baddies.

    Actually, Season 9 has been horrible. So bad that the premiere actually made me turn off the TV, a first for scrubs and me. I would call it a cancer as well, but Comedy Central has run a number of shows that were so bad they make Season 9 look like a work of Genius. Gems like Sarah Silverman or Krod Mandoon, which seemed bad enough to cause massive brain hemorrhaging.

    This is so fucking bad it's untrue, a Brit/American collaboration that everyone responsible for should be banned from the entertainment industry for life. (including Mat Lucas)

    I'll admit, I only watched five minutes of it before I made my judgement.

    That was all I needed.

    Interesting story around that one. The tone of the theatrical release is really muddy as it tries to be light-hearted and jokey in spots while needlessly grim and bloody (torture scene, for example) in others. This comes from the fact that they yanked the original director off due to his original cut and ending being too dark, so they reshot a bunch of shit, brought in Kris's villain character and actually INTRODUCED the nasty torture scene (movie wasn't dark enough? what the fuck?), then they go ahead and tag on an almost happy ending to the theatrical release. Stupid.

    The director's cut is a superior film despite it not being as complete as the director would've liked. It has a more consistent tone and is just generally a tighter, less Hollywood movie.

    I haven't watched an episode of Scrubs since season 5, I don't think.

    I just got my hands on the DVDs for Frisky Dingo, and I'm having a really hard time trying to have normal conversations with people without quoting lines from it every time I open my mouth. Maximum theoretical density of running gags and continuity porn has been exceeded.

    Boosh!

    Speaking as someone who worshiped Space Ghost: Coast to Coast and Sealab 2021--

    Oh god Frisky Dingo sucked. Especially the "Boosh!" thing... a painfully obvious example of an attempt at a forced meme. Crappy animation, unlikeable characters, incessant dick jokes, and an incomprehensible plot. Yeah... they didn't know what the hell they were doing with that show.
