Scrubs: Turk's air band skills - "He's so damned talented."

February 8, 2006

If you’re not watching Scrubs, then we can no longer be friends. That’s how much love I have for this show.

Last night’s episode was perhaps the funniest 30 minutes of sitcom so far this season. In short, it involved an air band, the extremely talented Donald Faison in “Spiderman and full effect,” and some most excellent music.

It started when Ted the janitor recruited co-workers for an air-band competition, so he could win tickets to a water park. Transition to Todd the surgeon, dressed in full-on '80s red leather pants, doing his best air band performance to Working for the Weekend. Turk watched the embarrassing performance and decided to school his co-workers in the skill of air banding.
“Do you think this is easy?” challenged the eternally somber Ted.

Cue the drums and Bel, Biv, Devoe’s Poison.

“Girl, I must warn you,” Turk air belted as he awed the gang. Brilliant. The janitor watched in disbelief before giving this ringing endorsement: "He's so damned talented."

Turk nailed the audition and became the lead singer for the Cool Cats air band. The Cool Cats’ final performance of Boston’s More Than a Feeling had me laughing nonstop for two minutes. Ted's guitar solo was hysterical.
