It seems like every show on television today is SUPERSERIOUS. Whether it’s a courtroom drama, a CSI spinoff, or an HBO show about a magical world with either dragons or no dragons, everyone is constantly scowling and wringing their hands at the sky. But fear not dear reader, for we have compiled a stunning list of the best gag reels from the most serious of television shows (well, as serious as drama bloopers from a show about glampires can be). We’ve got Peter Dinklage dancing, Edie Falco making really weird faces, and Ice-T grinning from ear to ear. It’s a veritable cornucopia of actors making fools of themselves in blooper reels from drama series.

The time-honored tradition of TV bloopers lives forever online, where digital librarians (i.e. nerds) compile gag reels of their favorite programs for all the world to see. Everything from hunks getting concussions on Lost to the dumb-dumbs on Sons of Anarchy falling off tow trucks can be found floating around the Internet, and we’re happy to put all the best blooper reels together for you in one place so you can get your giggles in while you’re at work. Speaking of work, you might want to put your headphones on because these blooper reels are full of television actors you didn't know were potty mouths!

After you finish chuckling away your day, feel free to vote on which gag reels for dramas made you laugh the hardest, and comment on which reel you thought should stayed on the cutting room floor.

Other than the normal line flubbing that you would expect from a gag reel there's really nothing of substance here, unless you count the AWESOME DANCE SEQUENCE AT THE END.

The best part of this gag reel happens at about 1:30 in, when a tough as nails skin head wielding a shot gun just can't get on top of a tow truck. It's like watching a turtle on its back.

By the time ST:TNG season three rolled around, the actors on board the USS Enterprise had settled into their characters nicely. But this gag reel shows that no matter how comfortable you are with your character, reciting pages of techno babble is still impossible.

Breaking Bad set the standard for modern water cooler television, it grabbed the zeitgeist and squeezed until we were all eating donuts covered in blue "meth." The show seriously stressed all loyal viewers while it was on the air so it's nice to see Cranston and crew hamming it up here.
