The Worthless Peons

You know, I love loser characters on TV who once in a while manage to briefly shine in some way before immediately going back to being a loser.

Grandpa Simpson, George Castanza, Bill from King of the Hill, and Micheal from The Office are such characters. Another one is Ted from Scrubs, played by Sam Lloyd, who happens to be Christopher Lloyd’s nephew.

In my mind, the way that Ted briefly breaks out of being a total loser character is with his singing. Lloyd’s a cappella group The Blanks appears on Scrubs as four disrespected hospital employees. On the show, reflecting their characters’ low status, they call themselves The Worthless Peons.

Here’s a compilation of some of their work on the show. If you listen to the end, you’ll here a rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow that I think is quite nice.
