…the moment we’ve all been waiting for dreading: the implosion of Scrubs.
So fun to watch, isn’t it?
Okay, so maybe implosion is a harsh term. I’m unspoiled, so I have no clue. Maybe Patrick won’t cheat on Robin. And maybe Sonny will go to jail for life!
(What? It could happen? Yeah, no. Even I don’t believe that crap.)
The problem is these writers have a tack record of trashing characters for the shiny object of the week. This time it’s the oh, so original and dramatic love-triangle. And they’ve spent so much time building this plot point, it’s hard to believe it won’t end in disaster.
Honestly, I don’t mind Patrick and Robin fighting. I think their disagreements are part of what makes them interesting as a couple. But making both Patrick and Robin unsympathetic, self-righteous jerks in the process? Not. Cool.
Patrick’s temper tantrum about not being able to prove, yet again, that he has the biggest surgical tool in the hospital is such a contrived plot point. (Not to mention extremely obnoxious.)
And Robin… well, I understand her being upset about Patrick keeping the Dante secret. That doesn’t mean I think she’s right, but I get the emotion. However, the Sonny supporting is beyond me at this point. No matter what he meant to her in the past, it doesn’t seem in line with her character that she wouldn’t have a bit of a jolt about Sonny’s lifestyle right now. I’ve lost count of the number of infuriating things that have come out of her mouth in recent episodes.
It’s reached the point where I groan when either of them come on screen. If the writers are going to force this Scrubs love-triangle, could they at least not focus on the worst parts of these characters to the point that I hate seeing them?
