WARNING: Spoilers from the latest episodes of Scrubs and Survivor below...
Ok, I admit to totally not getting that it was Brendan Frasier's character that died mid-episode on Scrubs. I just watched Tuesday's episode last night but, thanks to this TiVo Community Forum thread I knew something was up with this episode...as the show usually does not usually elicit two pages worth of posts by Wednesday morning. So a little baffled after watching the show, I went there
and learned all the things I totally missed.
So when Cox returned to the hospital it was Frasier who was dead, not the old guy Cox told JD to keep an eye on. This explained why Cox was so wacko, Frasier appeared as a "ghost" for the remainder of the episode (the clue I was supposed to get was that he no longer had his omni-present camera), and Cox was talking about going to the funeral and NOT his son's birthday party as he was earlier in the episode. Hopefully, I was not the only one who felt (feels!?!) that a big whoosh went right over his head. I saved it on TiVO, so I will probably re-review given what I know now.
Also, I guess I am so desensitized ... yes, even in this Miss Jackson/post-Super Bowl world... that I could not figure out what in last night's Survivor earned an "may be inappropriate for younger viewers" pre-immunity challenge warning from the scaredy cats over at CBS. At first I thought it was the standoff between Boston Rob and Ethan...with passion in their eyes, it had all the makings of a juicy homo-erotic moment until Rob just about slammed the curls off poor Ethan's head.
Yeah, pretty cross-my-legs violent ... but considering the number of people who got knocked to their asses in last week's challenge... it did not seem all that bad.
But then the naked (of course!) Richard Hatch brushed his exposed immunity idol across the backside of Sue Hawk apparently long enough to get Jeff Probst all pissy (not that it takes all that much to do that!)... So this is probably what got CBS shaking...especially given next week's previews where Sue looks to delivering another rant that will surely enter the Survivor history books.
