For those of us who felt underwhelmed at what was apparently Zach Braff's final episode as J.D., the good news is that the actor is contracted to film six episodes in Season 9 and this episode was number five. Normally, I'd judge an episode based solely on what was presented on-screen, but I feel this revelation really colors my review.
Initially, I thought this was his last episode of Scrubs, and because of that, I was furious. The jokes were sparse, his "final" heart-to-heart with Dr. Cox was tepid (considering how much of that relationship drove the show in the past), and the show's conclusion -- an "Eagle" with Turk -- lacked any spontaneity because it was a stunt they just did in the premiere. Those shortcomings still remain, but at least I know they'll have one more chance to fix things in the future and give J.D. a proper send-off. You know, like the one they already did for last season's finale.
