Buffy The Vampire Slayer"Scrubs" creator a huge fan of "Buffy"

JK: Did you use the Buffy musical as any kind of guide or inspiration?
BL: Not as a guide, but... I’m a huge fan of that show (Buffy); we used that show as an example, when we first talked about Scrubs way back the first year, we said that every year we make sure we do one or two special episodes that leave our show’s format and stands out. And we used Buffy as an example of a show that did it, like "Hush" the silent one or their musical; it was the stuff that I remembered. So on this show — we did a live sitcom once in front of an audience — every year we earmark two shows that are going to be big ones. That’s also why occasionally we break out of the format where it’s somebody else’s voice over rather than Zach’s.
Or, even though it’s a comedy, we take the time and kill someone. Or one year, we were like, the Sixth Sense has been gone for a while, so we’re gonna do that movie with Brendan Fraser to see if anyone catches it. This year, we’re going to do a musical and then we’re going to kill one of the characters that’s been around for six years.
