My rationale for Scrubs is as follows:
4) The hospital’s lawyer character, Ted, is a sad, balding man who is pretty much Prufrock personified. If you’ve watched Scrubs and read the poem, you will know exactly what I mean.
5) Oh, and there’s a character named Eliot, and the poem was written by an Eliot. Just like Gatsby teaches the Prohibition, I guess. I called our objective, “Students will be able to make text-to-media connections between historical American poetry and modern-day televised fiction.”
