its not that good yet
i searched for scrubs and got this as the first result:
http://video.google.com/videopreview...khfdvuiFQGKOAM
I compared with watching my "digitised" copy of this episode, and I can tell that they are using voice recognition on the video stream, which is not that great.

Its certainly ambitious, I hope google can make it perfect (like they normally do)

[edit: it actually uses closed captioning, i wonder why then that the transcript for that scrubs ep is so wrong?]

Is it possible they just didn't have the time to proofread the captions before broadcast. Or, in the extreme case, that they were so short on time that it was online captioned.

Closed captions aren't something usually afforded a huge budget or amount of time.

If you click on the words "video not available", it gives you the explanation.

I wouldn't mind google toilet paper.

Alex Jones: Do you want the puppet on the right or the puppet on the left? What a bunch of garbage; liberal democrat, conservative, republican. It's all there to control you! Two sides of the same coin. Two management teams bidding for control, the CEO job of Slavery, Incorporated! The truth is out there in front of you, but they lay out this buffet of lies. I'm sick of it, and I'm not going to take a bite out of it, do you got me?
