Scrubs Season 5 Episodes 7 and 8: Better

Okay, so I've made it clear that there is a huge difference in Scrubs this season as compared to seasons past. And it's true; the overall quality and humor is just not as sharp as it has been. But the most recent two episodes (which I was able to watch just now) seemed to be a return to the old glory days.

In the first one, there was a cool color-change, Wizard of Oz motif, ending in an AWESOME crane tracking shot.

In the second, the writers did some very cool things with the timeline of story--a story told through flashback, as it were. You usually don't see this in modern sitcoms.

These aspects of Scrubs were what first drew me to the show, and what has been missing lately--but at least for now it looks like a little of it has come back to us.
