Something about Worf cracking up makes me lose it every time.

I think I just realized I was Worf in high school. First to laugh, a backslapper and generally not cast in any theatre production unless it involved wearing a mask or narrating off-stage.

I just can't watch anything anymore without expecting a 'Yakkity Sax' soundtrack. Thanks Metafilter.

Anyone know why the footage is all back to front?

Ugh, even the bloopers from the last Star Trek suck.

Quantum Leap is a boring captain who obviously doesn't care about what he's doing.

...as though he just stepped into the role without knowing who his character was supposed to be?

Wow, nice catch. I didn't notice that at first.

Thank god. I'm NOT going crazy.

It's probably reversed so the Youtube copyright bots don't flag it.

Yep. It'll be down in a little bit soon anyway... this was posted some time back but got yanked.

Worf cracking up is funny. I also like it when Data messes up because you know, androids don't have emotions and all. :) And I normally hate the character Q but watching John DeLancie struggle with omnipotent was fun. :)

Enterprise has surprisingly entertaining bloopers.

I think Quantum Leap is a pretty cool guy. Eh bores audiences and doesn't afraid of anything.

I didn't watch the whole thing, but I assume the bloopers were all from Star Trek: The Next Generation and not Star Trek.

Skip to minute 17, Captain Hater

Next time maybe watch the whole thing before telling people what you assume the whole thing is.

I would watch hours of TNG bloopers, primarily for the extra Patrick Stewart snorgling action, but this was not nearly as engaging.

I skipped the Enterprise bloopers, but I consider that whole series one long blooper reel.

41 MINUTES OF STAR TREK BLOOPERS FROM RUSSIAN DASH CAM

Yeah, this seemed like maybe more ALL THE BLOOPERS rather than A CAREFULLY CURATED LIST OF THE BEST THAT IS SOMEHOW 41 MINUTES LONG. Which is OK, of course, just not the same thing.

We kinda touched on this in the previous thread, but to me one of the amusing things about these bloopers is that the director, who is obviously under significant time and money pressures, (note how often a director is heard pushing for a quick retake, or reminding his cast that "we're still rolling!") and yet he still has to have the presence of mind and good humor to call for a print of these blown takes, knowing that they cost money, and are of no use to the show's needs. They were simply deemed "funny enough to save" on the spur of the moment.

Fascinating.

Well, these days a good blooper reel is one of the main reasons to buy a TV show on DVD, which for some shows is where half their money comes from.

Indeed. In lots of cases, you'll actually see actors calling out "that's one for the gag reel!"

At some point, of course, this will probably necessitate having the cast flub their lines intentionally, so as to ensure an adequate supply of bloopers for the Deluxe Platinum Collector's Edition DVD.

I see what you did there.

Or did she mean "energizing"?

No, engaging is what we say in this room.

There was that scene in "Future Imperfect" where they're celebrating Riker's birthday, and he plays a bad note on his trombone. After he blows out the candles, Troi asks what he wished for, and Riker/Frakes pauses and says "Music lessons," and you can see everyone kind of snicker. I always wondered if he just missed his cue, or if it was an ad lib. (Can't find a clip online, though there are other Riker trombone videos.)

And I did this previous of a full cast reunion they did last year, and if one had never seen how the cast interacted off-screen, they'd be surprised how funny and jovial they all are.

There was one part where they talk about a certain line that Frakes kept screwing up (can't remember it now), and I was hoping it'd be on this compilation, but I guess it was only season 2.
