There's a "Scrubs" podcast!!! And it's awesome!!!

I know this is pretty new, but how did I not hear about this sooner? There's a new podcast with Zach Braff and Donald Faison and they're going through every single episode of Scrubs.

The series, which ran from 2001-2010, was in my opinion one of the all-time under-appreciated shows. It's unbelievable to me that this show didn't dominate the Emmy's during the 2000's, especially in terms of the acting and writing. Scrubs could be gut-busting hilarious and yet punch you in the gut (think Brendan Fraser's brief but glorious arc as Ben Sullivan). There are parts of that show that are some of the funniest things ever, and parts that have reduced me to a sobbing mess.

Braff and Faison, who played best friends on the show, also became close friends in real life. The podcast will feature the two reviewing the show episode by episode. I'm actually listening to the first one as I'm writing this and it's hilarious. There's a lot of behind-the-scenes info and reminiscing. They will be doing the podcasts on a weekly basis and the first one is up on iTunes and iHeart Radio. They're also taking fan questions and plan on having a lot of other people involved with the show on in the future.

Let's face it, we all have a lot of free time to fill up right now and a weekly podcast and rewatching Scrubs will not only help fill that time, but make it entertaining.
