I would say kids over the age of ten could basically watch Scrubs. The material may be a little iffy for the ages ten to twelve, but it should be acceptable. younger children, as to eight and under should not be watching it. Now, the maturity of eight year olds and under are lower then ten year olds, because ten year olds learned about puberty already. The show "Scrubs" is got very mild sexual references, intact, most of them don't have any. The language
in all the episodes are very mild such as, "crap", "hell", or "shut up", that would be okay for ten year olds.
The show is probably the best hospital show ever made. It's got everything, jokes, romance, fantasy (J.D. always day dreams) and characters who are real d--ks but are insanely funny (got to love Dr. Cox). The sex is quite explicit, one character, Elliot, often talks about her sexual fantasies but it's not shown. Great show recommended for teens.
Scrubs is really funny. The acting is good, and a lot of things that happen are very realistic. However, I really dislike all the sex. Not like I've never heard of it before, contrary to many adult's beliefs, but it gets kina gross. But overall, it's a really good show, with lots of laughs!!! :)
I'm 15, I watched this show when i was 14, it's really not too bad. Most of the sexual innuendos will just fly over a kid's head, so it's not too funny unless you're old enough to get it. It does have a lot of sexual activity in it, which makes it awkward to watch with your parents lol, but it's honestly one of the best shows I've ever seen. It's uproaringly hilarious (I genuinely laugh out loud), the characters are shown with depth and realistic traits, and it's got great messages in each episode about family, love, relationships, friendships, work, dedication, etc. Awesome show, sad to see it cancelled.
Ive watched "Scrubs" since i was 11 and i love it. The only thing that i just wish they could take out is all the sexual behavior.
But the caractors REALLy draw you in to the show. JD is the charactor thats shows wat it REALLY is like to work for people in this world. Elliot cracks me up because she is always desprit for attention and a relationship. She will do anything to get what she thinks she needs. Turk is a normal every day guy. He helps with JD's problems (or trys to) and he is married so he trys to make his wife happy no matter what. The Janitor is a hard worker who just likes to have fun by playing pranks on JD and the rest of the cast.
Great Show On Handling Stress and a Career, Bad Messages On Sex
I've just begun to watch the first season, but already I love it. My favorite character has to be Dr. Cox, a frank, rebellious, sometimes hostile Doctor and the main character, J.D.'s, role model. The show does talk a bunch about the ups and downs of both friendships and romances, sometimes ending with a positive theme. But the sexual content, that's where it gets B.A.D. Elliot, one of the girls, constantly talks about only wanting a relationship for the sex. J.D. and Elliot have a VERY physical relationship even before they're dating. Even though the show is good, the lessons they teach on sex are NOT very wholesome. Scratch that- not wholesome at all.
"Scrubs" will be moving to ABC in 2009. Many people thought the show was canceled after the NBC finale in May, but ABC announced it would carry the show starting in 2009. For those who have yet to see the show, it's good, but beware of the sexual content. That's the reason why the show used to be rated TV-14 on NBC. When the show aired it's final episodes on NBC, and moved from 9:30 to 8:30, it started becoming rated TV-PG. Now, since all ABC sitcoms are rated TV-PG, I would assume that "Scrubs" would keep the TV-PG rating when it moves to ABC next year. Here's my ratings for the show: all episodes before the last NBC episodes--"pause" for 15+; the last NBC episodes--"pause" for 13+.
This show is, by far, one of the funniest shows on TV. JD's narration and imaginative daydreams bring a new level to the show; it's like you're seeing it from his point of view, though the narration does sometime switch between characters in some episodes.
Alcohol/Drugs - JD often makes remarks aobut his trademark appletinis - his favorite drink at the local bar. Other than that and a few beers every once in awhile, it's pretty clean.
Sex - Lots of sexual innuendos and implied sex. Some of it will go over kids heads, but other stuff won't. I'd suggest a 12 and up because of this.
Language - D**n and crap are used regularly, as are b**ch and hell. This would give it the 13-and-up rating - though I was watching Scrubs at the age of 11.
And as for the whole lightbulb-up-the-butt patient - why would parents get angry about that? I think I would've died laughing if I was eight and I saw an x-ray of a lightbulb up someone's butt.
Sexual Content (PG-13): Characters have sex, with some discussions of having sex too.
Language (PG): Risky few times, but mild for the average show.
Role Models (G): You do not want your kid acting like DR. Cox, or Dr. Kelso, or the Janitor, for they are all mean characters.
A bit inappropriate, but nothing ages 12 and up don't understand. There's a bit of sexy stuff and inappropriate jokes, but you can completely look past it with the positive messages and humor. I also like that you can vest in the main characters like JD and Elliot. It's really a great show
