View Full Version : My thoughts of Season 5, so far.

Still as clever, witty, and zany as the first four seasons. I loved the Wizard of Oz parody. If that episode does not get this wonderful show the Emmy or Golden Globe that it so rightfully deserves, then I will forever lose all hope for this show getting that kind of recognition.
I like that new guy, Keith. Where is Lonnie? I hope we see a lot more of JD's interns.
Shouldn't little Jack be talking by now? He's almost 3 years-old. Unless there's something wrong, kids that age do speak.
I want to see Turk hang with JD a lot more and Carla a lot less. I want to see a lot less Carla period.
And, finally, a few words of advice for Dr. Cox: RAZOR AND SHAVING CREAM!!!!!!!
That's all :D

And, finally, a few words of advice for Dr. Cox: RAZOR AND SHAVING CREAM!!!!!!! I can't argue with that. I think he is going for the 'House' look.

I agree with the Wizard of Oz episode being the best of this season, and one the best of the series.
This season in a mixed bag. Hard to swallow 2 episodes in one night- week after week- and evaluate how the year is going. At least with one episode you can mull it over in your head till next week and then compare them. With two at once I find I am almost lumping the two episodes together and confusing what happened in each.
JD this season has been way too neurotic and girly- basically extremely annoying. He has been petty jealous in almost ever episode- it's like he is regressing. I don't know, but it should stop.
i actually havent enjoyed the season so far its not as funny as it used to be

I still like the imagined situations. But the reality part is not that funny anymore. One important part - Dr. Cox being the person to command JD around - got lost. They are just on eyelevel which each other, this is perhaps the way it goes in reality but it is a bad situation for gags. Some characters which mainly used to drop their line in each episode start getting into the focus though clearly never being invented to get there - for example Todd is a funny invention, but for a real person he is just not plausible enough. Characters starting to think about why they are the way they are. That is always the beginning of the end, because such developements tend to scream: "You are an invention in a sitcom!"
All in all the funny part got more slapstick-ish. In contrast to the more unrealistic settings, there is this awkward conservative 3-minute-moral thing. While in the seasons before it was a part of the whole which was very good implemented into the storyline, it now seems often to be glued to the end just like in Who's The Boss or Home Improvement. Or the end of G.I. Joe.
