Star Trek: The Next Generation gag reel from season seven is awesome.
Make Star Trek: The Next Generation, or really any TV show must be tough. There are long hours, you often go back and forth to the same scenes, and sometimes you have to be ready for every waking hour, even when you are not being used. It may cause some minor errors during shooting. Some genius, a long time ago, classified those mistakes into a series of outstanding errors for everyone to laugh at. We call these happenings a spinning wheel.
Specially created to make people laugh. The content in these gag stories is usually funny and puts people in a good mood. After all, fans love seeing their favorite characters and actors break out of their on-screen personalities to show everyone a real glimpse of who they are.
Star Trek: The Next Generation have their own series of gag reels and today we are looking at their short but funny season 7 reel.
William Riker even stole footage of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s gag reel
William Riker, played brilliantly by Jonathan Frakes, was always a scene-stealer in the heyday of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Whether it’s with his demeanor, his good looks, that beard (what beard), or just the fact that he didn’t hesitate to open fire on his own captain after Jean-Luc Picard captured by Borg.
Riker stole the scene.
He did so again on this reel. It’s a scene where Riker is talking to Worf (Michael Dorn), but Worf is offscreen and just saying his lines so that Riker/Frakes can play with him. You can tell somewhere in Riker’s lines, Frakes messed something up and started acting excessively. It didn’t take long for everything to fall apart for the scene and laughter to erupt.
It’s a bit emotional to include these, as it helps fans bond more with the actors. Seeing someone’s sense of humor really helps a person understand who that person is.
That’s part of why the reels are so great.
That and they’re usually pretty funny.
