I'm a big fan of comedy. Lets face it, who doesn't like to laugh? It's often hard to find decent television comedy though. Many of you will have heard of Scrubs even though you might not have watched it. As the name suggests it's set in a hospital and follows the medical career of JD a trainee medical doctor and his best friend, Turk a trainee surgeon. I happened on this a few years ago when I switched channels and have watched ever since.
So what keeps me watching? It's well written for a start. It's a strange mix of lightweight silliness and occasionally dark comedy. It uses comedy to explore emotion, relationships, life and death often in an oddly touching way for a comedy.
While I'm away in Brussels I thought I would leave you with the following clip. It features Colin Hay singing 'Overkill'. In the episode the main characters have just fallen out after finding out things about each other that they would rather not know. The episode follows them trying to cope with and then overcome the situation. I hope you enjoy it.
