11 Gag Reels from Serious Shows

Seeing bloopers from comedies is pretty typical. It's way more fun when dramatic actors crack up—here's proof.
1. The X-Files
Twelve minutes of pure greatness, juvenile humor, and nostalgia.
2. Breaking Bad
This is from season 5—no watching if you're not through the show! And who knew Skinny Pete was a virtuoso?!
One more—season 3:
3. The West Wing
This takes half a minute to really get going. My favorite? All the "Tony" Ziegler business.
4. Battlestar Galactica
So gag we all! Incidentally, there's a detailed writeup of this reel from the Battlestar Wiki.
There are tons of these on YouTube, so let's start with the first season. Featuring plenty of Charlie material, and tons of falling down.
If that's not enough Lost for you, here's 15 minutes' worth:
6. The Lord of the Rings
Okay, it's not a TV show. But they're long enough to count, in my book. "Typical elf work."
7. The Wire
From season 4. Other seasons are on YouTube. Oh yeah, and there's a ton of unbleeped swearing, as you'd expect.
Yes sir, Captain Blooppants!
9. Star Trek: The Next Generation
These are the bloopers of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new bloops, to seek out new bloops and new civilizations, to boldly bloop where no one has blooped before. Oh, we've got more of these.
10. Grey's Anatomy
That X-ray lightbox is really tricky.
From season 2, profanity be damned! And in case you don't catch the opening joke, review this video.
