Traditional TV themes in Trombone Champ

Traditional TV themes in Trombone Champ

^Keep tuned after the advert for some beloved TV themes being murdered by our video producer

Trombone Champ is the present that retains on giving. By some means the gimmick of traditional tunes being mockingly rendered within the shrieking tones of a poorly synthesised brass instrument by no means appears to get much less humorous over time. Till now, in all probability, as a result of I’ve gone and tried to play together with some traditional TV themes within the free play improv mode.

It is good enjoyable this, however my spouse hates the sound of it already and I’ve been pressured to uninstall.

That is it. That is the write-up. Can I simply go away it there Tom? What else is there to say? I can do a write up of Star Trek: The Subsequent Technology’s greatest musically impressed episodes in case you like. Properly I am doing it anyway.

The Inside Gentle

Picard, as Kamin, taking part in his flute.

Arguably TNG’s greatest episode (it received a Hugo award and all the pieces), The Inside Gentle sees the Enterprise crew encounter an historic probe from long-extinct race of aliens whose planet, it seems, had been destroyed centuries earlier. An power discharge from the gadget knocks Captain Picard unconscious for a couple of minutes, however whereas out for the rely, he relives your complete lifetime of Kamin, a gifted scientist who launched the probe as a sort-of time capsule to be able to protect one thing of his lifeless civilisation.

It’s this episode that provides Picard his Ressikan Flute: an essential second within the lifetime of the character, which might come be referenced many instances within the following many years.


Picard partaking in his favorite passion of ignoring a lady.

Not as memorable an episode as The Inside Gentle, however simply as essential to Picard’s arc: it includes a love curiosity (he did not have many as a result of he is outdated and bald), Lt. Commander Nella Daren, who reveals up as a stellar cartography knowledgeable and finally ends up instructing him play his Ressikan Flute from the earlier episode. There is a bunch of different stuff that occurs too, however I am not going to summarise your complete plot as a result of I am actually solely doing this to pad out a video description.


Riker giving his horn a great parping.

A lot of the first season is bobbins, however there are just a few gems, and that is one. It includes a load of horrid wee IT gremlins doing upgrades on the ship, and Riker getting his trombone out for a horny holodeck character. Traditional Berman-era nonsense, then, however oddly fairly important for Riker: the trombone would often reappear within the present as a continuing supply of comedian reduction.

Additionally, the aforementioned love curiosity, Minuet, would make a shock return within the fourth season episode Future Imperfect as Riker’s spouse in a fabricated actuality designed to persuade him {that a} virus had robbed him of 16 years of recollections, when the truth is, it was all a ruse concocted by a wee alien boy who simply wished Riker to be his dad.

Which is extraordinarily relatable, as a result of I want he was my dad.


Did these bastards ever do any work?

Brent Spiner as soon as opined that Knowledge is TNG’s predominant character, and regardless of it being very a lot an ensemble present, I do perceive the place he is coming from: Star Trek is about exploring what it means to be human as a lot because it’s about exploring unusual new worlds, and Knowledge is an android on a private quest to search out his personal humanity.

This quest involves a head as Dr. Juliana Tainer, ostensibly Knowledge’s “mom”, arrives on board within the seventh season (following an extended and twisty multi-season subplot regarding Knowledge’s origins) and, lengthy story quick, she’s form of his mom but additionally form of his sister. However in a good science-fiction grappling with the character of self kind of method and never an “prolonged household in Norfolk” kind of method.

Proper that is sufficient
