にゃあエイリアンMeowAlien : Doctor is the last thing I want to be, I cannot bear the thought of shouldering such a heavy responsibility Much respect for all of the doctors out there! 👍

Kevin Le : 30 seconds in: “I don’t know who this guy is but 6am is late” *crossing doctor off the list*

Callum Hurley : Dude, pilots are never a good way to judge a show.

TellMeMore : Please please please react to S5E20 My Lunch. Heartbreaking episode and medically very interesting. Probably my favourite episode of any medical TV show.

Rachel K : I'm curious to know if you noticed in the opening theme that the chest x-ray was backwards. My dad loved this show but that always annoyed him. Eventually a few seasons in, during the opening, the music stops, one of the new characters walks in, and she flips it the right way around and says, "That was backwards, it's been bugging me for years!" My dad freaked out, he was so excited, he was like "Ugh YES I've been saying that forever!" Also, like I already said, my dad is a doctor and everyone also calls him "Doctor Mike." So while you're basically the perfect man I can't find you attractive because that's all I can think of lol. I still love your videos! Keep doing what you do.

ZombieDeathRace : Dood, you gotta watch the rest of the episodes. It may be a comedy, but the character development and comedy get WAY better... and the dark stuff gets darker. It really was a good show, and worthy of all its praise.

Trøjan : How old are you?? When did you start medical school? 10???

Miggy Unabia : As a doctor myself, I love Scrubs the most among all the doctor shows because though their jokes may be dated, with regards to the lessons you learn and pick up as you start as an intern all the way to becoming an attending, it's very accurate. I suggest you keep watching the show. :)

taesthetic Vibe : "being informed, being knowledgeable, and being smart" all things that im not ;)

danteelite : As someone who has had over 100 surgeries/OSPs since I was 18 months old, over 23 years, I have these same reactions watching these shows.. I've spent years in hospitals absorbing everything I see and so much of what is on TV is laughably fake.. like magic defibrillators bringing *dead* people back, and doctors breaking laws in crazy ways, or discussing patients info in public areas (I love the awkward silence when you walk by talking doctors while they wait for you to pass out of earshot lol), and all the ridiculous hospital sex. Hospitals aren't sexy, everyone is tired, smell like farts and hand sanitizer, and just want to do a good job and go the fuck home and sleep! You're absolutely doing the world a service, and doctors and huge favor by showing how it really is. I always wanted to be a doctor as a kid, but as I became an adult I knew I couldn't handle it. I'm a germaphobe, I'm terrified of needles (I hate those prickly phlebotomy vampires. Get a real job and stop stealing people's life juice!), and honestly.. I couldn't handle it mentally or emotionally. Doctors are straight up heroes. No joke. Even take away the life saving.. just the hours worked, years and decades studied, mountains of debt, working under absolute stress, working with a giant liability guillotine overhead, and having to deal with... _humans_ ugh. Heroes. That save lives, even with all of that weighing them down.

Sobepome : The thing about Scrubs is that it starts in a relatively dark place, because it starts when JD and his friends are extremely anxious about their new job, and over time all of the characters in the series show a lot of growth. The main driver of the show is the idea that the experiences they go through working at this hospital really help them to change and become better people.

Alicelf360 : I have no idea what he’s talking about but I’m interested

Daniel Colon Laboy : Doctor Mike I am about to start going to college of four years of biology then to med school. I served 8 years in the Military and was diagnosed with PTSD so I am a bit scared but I want to prove myself that I can do it and to others that don't think I am smart enough or will give up. I just need advice and what I should do to become successful. Thank you so much. Very Respectfully a fan.

savdebunnies : There is a lot of sex and relationship drama in Scrubs, but is still a really good show. The medicine is really accurate mainly because they never get into anything too rare or complicated (with the exception of the episode based on House M.D., and the one where Eliot literally reads out of textbooks the whole time). The most impressive thing to me is the clocks in the background. The clocks are always set to an appropriate time for the scene.

R S M : Lol what's next? Asylum inmate reacts to "American Psycho"?

princesspuffypants : Please react to Call the Midwife!

Jessica Olson : I think one of the reasons this show is considered to be more accurate is because they actually do show the nurses doing more of the bedside care. So many shows have the doctors running around doing the nurses job! xD

Chris Taylor : Probably the WORST episode to evaluate of this series. I've watched Scrubs in completion so many times and this one has to be the LEAST medically involved episode of this show.

super disappoint : Do untold stories of the er

Beka Rex : I’d love to see a reaction to the scrubs episode where the old woman decides she’s ready to die, and JD can’t cope with it. Gosh, I didn’t half tear up at that one.

PixelsInSpace : Watching your channel makes me wish I became a nurse maybe I will go and get the education for becoming a nurse

sammysunflower : Please keep doing scrubs!!! It’s my favourite 😍😍😍😍😍

Abby Ryan : I LOVE Scrubs! My aunt’s cousin is Sarah Chalke, and my brother was on Zach Braff’s latest show.

Zen Frog : Please review the Scrubs season 5 episode 12 (My Cabbage) And it follows an infection through the hospital I think you will find it fascinating.

FuzzMustard : React to the Scrubs episode called My Lunch. Best episode in the series! :D

Shauna Lacow : This may have been stated before, but I was told (and it seems true) Scrubs is loosely based on the book House of God about medical residents. It has very dark humor. I was a trauma/ER nurse for 10 years (FNP now) and it was quoted a lot in the ER. Those who read it got the quips, those who didn’t looked so puzzled. The ER is very much a dark humor place. I LOVED my time in the ER, but ER nurses have a shelf life and I met mine. Being in family practice is a nice change. Your videos are great. Perfect while I’m putting on makeup 😂. Thanks

Dave Dennis : Glad to know this show was really pretty accurate

7 Horseshoes & A 4 Leaf Clover : Doctor Mike, Scrubs is one of the best shows a human being could watch. The reason why is because it has life lessons that remind us to be better human beings in subtle ways that maybe we forget as we all get older. Season 1 wasn't as good as following seasons for many reasons. But Dr. Cox "wrong" response in season 1 in the tune of Big Ben chiming, is one of the best jokes I've ever seen and heard. It seems simple but is actually a multi-layered joke. The implication was that not only was J.D. wrong, he was wrong in a epically, most spiritually way. Following seasons, the show got much better. When it first came on, I WASN'T into it. But about season 5, I realized how great it was. Season 1 was the year 2000. So, somethings may have been different from when you did your interning (2017?). It IS a comedy so you do need to give more leeway. Scrubs is loosely based on real doctors John Dorian and Dr. Molly Clock, if I remember correctly. And I think both were consultants for the show I think.

lorisa97 : I hadn't realized until now that you photoshop yourself into the series' poster

Gabriel : Don't feel too bad about the stereotyping. This show IS pretty old and if they did decide to reboot it, there'd probably be a lot of changes. It does get better though, this show was my life during my pre-teen/teenage years and it still definitely is.

HoshiHikari : Your disposition makes me want to reapply for med school! I have never seen your videos before but this one gives me all the hope that was dashed by med student cynics when I was applying the first time xD

Dennis Gutschalk : you should take into consideration that scrubs is really old now.

ILove PotatoChips : please react to the anime Dr. Black Jack. anyone with me?

Iceley Emcy Tejano : I'm subscribing because I want to see you react to other episodes of Scrubs. I did try watching other medical drama (except the Good Doctor, probably next time), but I just found them so .... dramatic? Lol. Scrubs is more my thing. I know jack about medical procedures, but it's nice seeing how "human" they seem in Scrubs. I'll have re-watch some episodes of it too haha

Natalie Christine : Yess, you def need to watch more episodes, I feel like this was too short to judge.

Andrei : I don't know jack=)))

Thomas Steffensen : I would say, the more u watch scrubs, the better it gets, up to the point where they swapped all the main characters with other.

Mehul dharwal : Just a 2nd year medical student..😅

layla B eee : Anyone else see the set for my wife and kids

Bibek Sunar : Do a video on House MD episode "finding Judas"or "All in" please please one of the most educative medical episode.

E Lee : You need to watch the episode 'My Lunch' season 5 ep 20.

Juan Gregorio : You ripped off Dr. Hope

Thecoconutpie : How old is he asking for a friend

Lisa Brennen : Doctor Mike, I've gone through many of your awesome videos but haven't found any for the show "Royal Pains". It was a pretty good show about a concierge doctor in the Hamptons. Would love to see your reactions! :)

Joana Dias : I love the respect you Always have for nurses 😽 thank you

GuardianXwolf : Sadly I have short term memory so I'd probably forget about it unless something triggered my mind to remember

Albino Rhino : I loved Scrubs that show was awesome

Kathryn Luddeke : I just found you and I'm obsessed. #bingewatch

Cristle Johnson : "Emergency" is supposedly the most accurate medical show. Check that out.

Deb Parks : I love your channel! But don’t judge Scrubs with the pilot. Watch the episode My Lunch.
