One time I was pulled out to the ER to help out ease one of its nightly shitstorms, several staff members asked me if I play basketball. Apparently a bunch of the nurses form different areas play once or twice a week and are looking for new blood to spill. I politely declined the offer and told them I wasn’t really that much into it. Don’t get me wrong, I play a little basketball and love following it on TV. I’m not, however, in the same league as those who play it regularly and would probably be destroyed instantaneously while being humiliated if I ever shared a game with them.
In another conversation, one staff member asked me if I was into playing DoTA, the widely popular Warcraft expansion game. I told him I wasn’t into that game though I play online games like Counter Strike or any game as old as it was.
These conversations led me to several ephiphanies: 1. I’m getting too old to appreciate things that “kids” enjoy nowadays, 2. I live a pretty sedentary lifestyle which most probably lead to cardiovascular disease, and 3. I don’t have a “thing”.
I’ve always loved Scrubs. I tried to follow the show religiously, but ironically, real life hospitals get in the way of me watching the show. So when my girlfriend bought me all eight seasons of Scrubs (I consider season 9 as a separate show), I watched every single episode of it, and loved every second of it.
It has all the things I look for in a TV show: great characters, great story line, wit, awesome soundtrack, and a balance of funny and emotional moments. It is undoubtedly, one of the greatest shows ever made.
