    Some reasonably encouraging news on the ratings front. These eps were up more than 11% in the key 18-49 demo versus the season 4 bow. Hopefully more of these viewers side with the positive thoughts in this thread rather than the negative. (Source: The Futon Critic.)

    Still, as usual, one has to wonder what NBC is thinking, if anything. They bring Scrubs back against the Orange Bowl (easily last night's #1), with a bizarre lead-in of Fear Factor, and a lead-out of SVU.

    I think the issue with the first episode was that J.D. was so unappealing (especially with that fake laugh) that it turned off a number of people.
    (I realize that was the point but......)

    I was surprised at how fast Elliot's new hospital job was written out. I guess it would have been hard to find scenarios that put her into the storyline's with the rest of the gang, not to mention the need for different looking hospital sets.

    Also, I'm pretty sure Bill Lawrence broke his 'J.D. and Elliot hook up once a season' rule that was mentioned in prior seasons.

    I had the exact same reaction. For the same reason, I fully expect Elliot to be back at Sacred Heart in the matter of an episode or two (although it's obviously easier to incorporate her into storylines now that she doesn't have anyplace else to be). Makes you wonder why they even bothered with the development, aside from a little season-ending cliffhanging (and maybe that was the reason). But we'll see where they go with it.

    It'd kill you to wait until you've seen both?


    I thought the episodes were OK, but not great. After waiting so long to see these, I was a bit disappointed.

    I don't think two threads would work, because people would forget which episode they saw something in and talk about it in the wrong thread.

    These two eps weren't S2 good, but I still enjoyed them.

    I thought Cox's wife looked more like Kate from The Drew Carey Show (yeah, I know it's the same actress). She let her hair grow out and she looks younger and better. My son kept waiting for Drew to make a cameo :)

    It also helps that she's not pregnant anymore. ;)

    It may seem like I was down on this show but I am seriously considering changing my user title to Bankfarter. :D

    <"Don't make fun of my people, Carla!"> (in german). :D

    Is it just me, or whenever Elliot speaks in german (here and at least once last season too), is it crazy hot? :drool:

    Especially "Frick!". :)
