Who needs McDreamy, McSteamy, or even, dare I say, McArmy when you can have a creepy clown doctor, a crutch-bound chief surgeon who shows young girls how to put a condom on a huge banana accompanied by her favorite sexy music, and a couple of confused roomies just trying to figure out how to break up with their boyfriends, only to lead to an awkward almost lesbian relationship and a fake brain tumor? Oh, and they all work at a children's hospital and don't hesitate to cut into a kid with a broken arm to make sure she doesn't have AIDS.
Childrens' Hospital, as it's appropriately yet ironically named (with the s' because the hospital is named after Dr. Childrens), is a brand new comedy webseries from thewb.com, and it's all the hilarious weirdness described above and plenty more!
Childrens' Hospital is packed with completely ridiculous, very deep and reflective characters in this Scrubs-like cheesed-up soap opera mockumentary, that has an excellent cast of comedians including Megan Mullally of Will & Grace, The Office's Ed Helms, Nathan Corddry of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and The Daily Show, Ken Marino of The State and Veronica Mars, Worst Week's Erinn Hayes, and Saturday Night Live's Jason Sudeikis.
Childrens' Hospital webisodes are about 4 - 5 minutes long, each narrated by mainly Dr. Cat Black, one of the lovely sexually confused female doctors, who muses about life, much like JD Dorian on Scrubs, pondering life and love including deep insights such brains being messy things filled with jelly.
While there's already humor out there in the medical shows, Childrens' Hospital brings the humor to an all new level of inappropriate nuttiness, with the mock soap opera aspect adding a perfect unique element that allows every character to be properly haunted by his or her disturbing and silly past and also gives them the excuse to over-dramatize every emotional situation from a flashback for Dr. Owen Maestro of his policeman days including a fight with a friend about the correct date on September 11, 2001, to Dr. Lola Spratt breaking up with her boyfriend by faking a brain tumor, only to have him think her break up speech is "the brain tumor talking," and of course, the silly crassness of Ed Helms' character and his doctor buddy writing lewd suggestions meant for Megan Mullally's very awkward and unsexy character on their tongues and eyelids.
If you're a fan of the fantastic quirkiness of shows like Scrubs, Reno 911!, Arrested Development, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Childrens' Hospital will most certainly tickle your funny bone just right, so tune in now to the newly released webisodes on the Childrens' Hospital's home on thewb.com!
