Review: Scrubs - Our Drunk Friend Season 9, Episode 2

Here is where we see glimpses of what Scrubs: Med School could be. Lucy gets too involved with a case. Denise opens up -- well, at least as much as she can open up -- to Drew. Cole being Cole. Cox overseeing everything with his lit-on-fire rantings.

But they're just glimpses. As in the premiere, the more memorable stuff was from the old crew and how they interacted with each other. The most troubling part of that was J.D., or, more accurately, the Two J.D.s.

On the one hand, we have the mature, kind, and professorial J.D., the one who is mentoring Lucy and imparting all the wisdom he's learned over the last eight years. And we have the jaded and grizzled veteran J.D., who knew that Lucy's alcoholic patient Alan wasn't going to get himself any help. If that's the J.D. we're going to get in the six episodes Zach Braff is in, I'll take it.

But, mixed in is the silly and needy J.D., the one that seems to appear and disappear depending on the season. Last year, he was mostly gone, but this year he seems to be back with a vengeance. He tries to take Cox's "#1" sign away from Drew; he conducts class from a tree and is afraid of getting back down. He coos at Turk like he's Denzel Washington in The Great Debaters. He thinks to himself that he looks "dynamite" in a cloak. It's a J.D. that's always funny, but this version of him needs to be dialed back a bit so the other characters can shine.
