For anyone who’s a fan of lighthearted comedy wrapped around something as serious as modern medicine, Scrubs is an excellent show to watch or rewatch.

Eddie Falco stars in this critically acclaimed series. What makes this show stand out is that its narrative is focused on one of the pivotal parts of modern medicine which is the nursing staff. The contribution and care nurses provide is invaluable and yet often goes unmentioned, which is why this show is a breath of fresh air.
