New TV classics?

Entertainment Weekly recently released its top 100 "new TV classics from the last 25 years" and nowhere on the list was "Scrubs," which is about the only series released since 2000 that I like. There were a lot I agreed with on there, including "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "The Cosby Show" and even shows I didn't like but recognized the significance, such as "The Sopranos" or "The Real World." But "Pee-Wee's Playouse" and "Amazing Race" over "Scrubs"? Puh-leez!

"Scrubs" has had a long run with an amazing cast and creative scripts and is clearly unique with its quirkiness, comedy and its roundabout route to poignancy. Give J.D., Turk, Dr. Cox and the rest some credit.
