The complete fifth season of the popular US comedy series. The show focuses on the bizarre experiences of fresh-faced medical intern John 'J.D.' Dorian (Zach Braff) as he embarks on his healing career in a surreal hospital crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients. During this season the laughs are off the charts as J.D. moves in with Turk (Donald Faison) and Carla (Judy Reyes), and Elliot (Sarah Chalke) uses an interesting form of blackmail in order to get her job back at the hospital. Episodes comprise: 'My Intern's Eyes', 'My Rite of Passage', 'My Day at the Races', 'My Jiggly Ball', 'My New God', 'My Missed Perception', 'My Way Home', 'My Big Bird', 'My Half-Acre', 'Her Story II', 'My Buddy's Booty', 'My Cabbage', 'My Five Stages', 'My Own Personal Hell', 'My Extra Mile', 'My Bright Idea', 'My Chopped Liver', 'My New Suit', 'His Story III', 'My Lunch', 'My Fallen Idol', 'My Deja Vu, My Deja Vu', 'My Urologist' and 'My Transition'.
"I'm gonna have a good year, aren't I?" J.D. (Zach Braff), now an attending physician at Sacred Heart Hospital, asks in the fifth season's opening episode. All vital signs are good (the series did receive an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy), but longtime Scrubs fans may be forgiven a sense of déjà vu, from J.D.'s whimsical reveries to Dr. Cox's (John C. McGinley) increasingly tiresome rants. The series itself acknowledges the palpable sense of been there, seen that with the clever episode "Déjà vu, Déjà vu." But don't pronounce Scrubs dead just yet. Directed by Braff, "My Way Home," the series' 100th episode, is a brilliantly conceived homage to The Wizard of Oz with J.D. and company finding their hearts, brains, and courage. Another powerful episode that shows a welcome maturity is "My Lunch," in which J.D. at last has lunch with his reluctant mentor, Dr. Cox, in the wake of a patient's death (happily, the music rights were secured for the DVD release so that the Fray's "How to Save a Life" is playing on the soundtrack when Dr. Cox has his own tragic setback), and the follow-up episode, "My Fallen Idol."
While Scrubs has a tendency this season to get "more ridiculous" (in one episode, Neil Flynn's Janitor defies Ken Jenkins' Dr. Kelso to secretly keep a crow in the hospital), the scalpel-sharp writing affords Braff moments that are, in his character's own words, "classic Dorian." In the episode "My Half Acre," he mixes his sports analogies to tell Elliot (Sarah Chalke), "What's waiting for me in my room is what's known, in football terms, as a slam dunk," as he mimes hitting a tennis ball. Mandy Moore, displaying a surprising knack for physical comedy, follows Tara Reid and Heather Graham as a fleeting love interest for J.D. Other character milestones include pregnancies for Carla (Judy Reyes) and two other characters best left a surprise. Good for whatever ails season 5 are this set's extras, including an entertaining series retrospective, featuring interviews with the cast and creators, as well as commentary by Braff for an extended cut of "My Way Home." --Donald Liebenson

Series 5 is again filled with laughs,character building,drama,morals that make you think,stories that leave you thirsty for more and all of that makes for tv of the highest calibre.
Scrubs was always more than a comedy,its a show that deals with tragedy in and out of the hospital setting,J.D's inner monolouge brings incite to everything and as well as being funny is reflective and profound and some of the lessons learnt send shivers spiralling out of my spine,the 24 episodes here feature all that we love about the show and i aint going to give anything away here,but it wont hurt to say that at the end of series 3 and four there werent any cliffhangers,well that aint the case here,shocking stuff.
Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.
It has some great, new different types of episodes such as 'My Deja vu Deja vu' and uses a rip off from the Wizard of Oz. It has some very memorable scenes and some brilliant fantasies and gags!
Trust me, if you didn't like it first time round, if you buy it you will love it! I strongly recommend on buying this! (10/10)
