    This channel has been coming up in my youtube recommended list. So far it seems to be TNG only, and I'm not sure what to make of them.

    Are they the final scenes with bloopers fan-edited back in? They seem to be the aired scenes except one small bit that could only have been an outtake. Whatever else, it may be funnier seeing the blooper "left in" instead of in a blooper reel.

    I'm in some way scared of watching these messed up scenes, if someone starts laughing hysterically after some line I might expect it will happen in the final product when watching the episode. Obviously it won't happen in the final cut but might those laughs or something like that affect the way I see the episode later? I don't know. I won't risk it. :)

    For the same reason I'm not interested in behind the scenes material. I already kind of know how the sliding doors work and that's somehow annoying.

    In the second example I posted, Geordie drops the PADD, or whatever he was fiddling with, but the way it's edited back into the finished scene, it's like it was meant to be there. No reaction from the others except Worf jumps a little.

    Weird, but funny in a different way than as a blooper and really good editing on the ones I've seen so far.

    I love the In-Takes. They're an immediate click when I see them show up in my subscriptions page.

    Thanks. Despite having the blu-rays, I only ever watched the episodes. I've seen a few of the blooper reels on YT, so I know that's where the Data one is from.

    Yes! I think they're ingenious. But besides being just hilarious, they also highlight what an artificial, stiff and unrealistic environment these characters mostly exist in. No-one ever goofs up, misspeaks, stumbles or just plain behaves awkwardly.

    I've always wondered that myself. Why not leave in a throat-clear? A sneeze? A bump into a plant. You could totally leave in a PADD drop. I mean, that's something that happens at meetings, right? Someone leaves their phone on, knocks over a drink, dumps their purse.
    That's, like, what happens in life.

    I thought I had seen the blooper reels, but most of these are new to me

    I must say, editing those outtakes back into their original scenes is one of those obvious and easily executed ideas that are so good that I'm really angry at myself for not coming up with it myself. Those are really the kind of creative ideas I wish I would have. :lol:
