Please, save yourself. When you get through the 99, I suggest you hook up your laughter IV to the all-time best comedy to binge watch during a pandemic, Scrubs.

Showrunner Bill Lawrence had a best friend in college who was such a screw up, he had to retake pre-med to go to med school. Lawrence thought about the horror of waking up in a hospital to find that his doctor was a person like his friend and turned that idea into a comedy.

Lawrence named the protagonist after his friend, who eventually became a doctor who is now the head of the coronavirus command center at a Kaiser Hospital in Los Angeles.
