NBC Universal and Touchstone Television are closing in on a potentially groundbreaking deal to put episodes of "Scrubs" on Apple's iTunes. Pact would mark the first time a network and studio from different congloms have gotten together to make a series available for online purchase.
If all goes according to plan, viewers will be able to go to the NBC section of iTunes later this month and download episodes from the current season of the Touchstone-produced comedy.

(I'm always partial to real name first, catch-phrase second. Makes it easier to find the thread when you're scanning the forum.)

And I second the thread title suggestion, it's very funny hehe. I think we need to ask a Moderator somewhere though.

Same here. It's got a list of their top 5 favorite episodes, and a comprehensive list of all of the show's guest stars. Plus, fun pictures and facts about the main actors.
I recently purchased Giant Magazine's issue that has a cover story on Scrubs. I highly recommend it.

What's an "EK"? I know "EPK" is short for "electronic press kit", so how about "Time for an E(P)K, G!" ?
I thought that the poster said, "Time for an EKG, G." And an EKG is an electrocardiogram.

They have 3 new vids and one of them is viewer mail.

Plus, this is a great way to directly support the show without needing a Nielsen box. Go get 'em while they're hot!

I also loved how Donald phrased one of the reasons why Scrubs has been able to keep up the quality after all these years:
Tru dat dawg! I mean, I've always thought of that as well, but he said it way more succintly than I could.
Also, I mean, when people have a hit show, they might tend to sit back, relax and maybe not worry about what they put on the air, because they know people will tune in. But we have had to fight for our audience, and I think that makes us a little bit hungrier than other shows on television."

She's the only African American on the writing staff, and talks about the difficulties of that and how she has to be the "black perspective" on the staff. There are audio clips from the show and she talks about coming up with culturally sensitive jokes. It's pretty funny.
One of my professors in my Race in Media class assigned this for us to listen to. I couldn't have been more delighted with a homework assignment.

Oh, and it's EKG, G...I just watched that episode again today. I still think "Wazzup? You're white blood cell count" is the funniest of those posters.

ETA: whoa, she co-founded okayplayer.com too.
That's really funny. I guess Common's cameo wasn't as random as I had originally thought. Scrubs never struck me as a show that would attract people with Black Panther lineage and okayplayers, but you live and you learn.

I'm sure she likes the show, to judge by her interview, but her description of how she got the Scrubs job -- through serendipity due to the fact that she was ebaying her stuff to pay the bills (and Bill Lawrence liked her first book) - makes it sound like she wasn't exactly picky at the time...
