    And that means only one thing.

    Sarah Chalke.

    She's hot and all, but her character (Dr. Reed) grates on my last nerves sometimes. She's so neurotic, it actually annoys me and I know she's not real.

    But I do like her willingness to take off her shirt.

    It's a very underrated show...

    How did she get so hot when she wasn't all that as Fake Becky?

    She aged a lot better than the other Becky who I haven't seen in anything since Boys Don't Cry...

    Hey! There will be no criticism of the future Mrs. 'Beat!

    I think it's the best comedy on TV. Smart, and so well-written.

    She guest-starred on a SVU several seasons ago.

    hockeybeat knows of what he speaks.

    I'll say it again: I would never turn down Katherine Heigl, but she's not the prettiest TV doctor in her time slot.

    The marathon just ended here, serving up yet another realization: The fact that John C. McGinley has not a single win -- or even a friggin' nomination -- is Evidence No. 1,346,723 that the Emmys are a joke.

    Like on Scrubs alone, she has gotten hotter as she got older. Watch the first episode again. She looks alright, but nowhere near how good she does now.

    And Dr. Cox is up there with Homer Simpson and Georga Costanza as my favorite tv characters of all time.

    Best show on TV. It's a crying fucking shame NBC has shit all over it and robbed it of the audience it deserves...yet I think that's worked in its favor. It can get away with more and experiment a little bit more because NBC ignores it. And it rewards the audience for investing its time in these characters. To watch it from the start to now over a few months thanks to syndication is to marvel at how well-developed everyone is (and not just the lovely Ms. Chalke!!!) and the remarkable chemistry of the cast.

    Every character is different than it was a few years ago, but every nuance is believable. You'd never think Cox or Kelso could have turned into sympathetic characters, but they are. You'd never believe The Janitor was more than a stark raving psycho, but that scene where the paralyzed patient thanks him for fixing his computer and the Janitor turns away, as if he's about to cry, proves he is indeed more than a nutty mildly homicidal guy. And the interplay between characters is genuinely authentic.

    The episode "Life In Four Corners" (I think that's what it's called) where JD wonders what life would be like if the hospital was a sitcom was one of the best episodes of network TV I've ever seen.

    I'm rambling. Sorry. Best show on TV.

    I completely agree. Every character is human. And every episode is brilliantly written. Every time I think they can't top themselves, they do.

    Kelso sharing a sandwich with his insurance-less friend at the end of this Thursday's episode was so touching. Here's a hardass who doesn't care about anything but the bottom line, letting his guard down and giving a glimpse at who he really is.

    Cox, curmudgeon, is probably the realest character on TV. He cares for everyone in the hospital, but can't show it because it will reveal his character.

    It's such a wonderful show. It deserves better than to be pulled in-and-out faster than Pee Wee Herman at an porno theater.

    It's not often that I believe an actor is the character he or she protrays. But, John C McGinley is Dr. Perry Cox.
