I miss Dr. Cox

(Originally posted on Sunday, 16 July 2017)

Every great sitcom has a character that is grumpy. Such characters may vary in details, but they are always important and fun. Dr. Cox was one of the best such characters ever. He was a kind of bond for all the other main characters in Scrubs – he was the only character that was in a direct contact with every other important character in this sitcom. He was not perfect, but I miss him anyway. He did say some very wise things during his crazy rants.

One of the best features of this great sitcom was music – there were cool songs playing in the background at some moments that fit the mood of a particular episode perfectly. The ending of the last video below is a good example. That episode (as a whole, not the last video below) explains to some extent why Dr. Cox was such a grumpy character – he and his sister had a very bad father who treated them definitely not in the right way.

PS. The song in the last video is “In the Sun” by Joseph Arthur. My favourite part is this:

I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you see
