Attention all Trekkies and blooper-lovers: The Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 2 Blu-Ray has just been released, and included in its special features is a brand-new gag reel that has never been released before and it’s absolutely hilarious.
With Whoopi Goldberg (who plays Guinan) forgetting her lines, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) in some sexy poses, Worf (Michael Dorn) continuously messing up his lines, and countless scenes where the cast can’t help but burst into laughter.
The new Blu-Ray also includes brand-new documentaries featuring all new cast and crew interviews, original episodic promos, TNG 25th Anniversary Cast Reunion, deleted scenes, and more. Watch the Season 2 outtakes below. I’ve also included the Season 1 gag reel, although it’s not in HD like Season 2 is.
Fine, we ALL recognize this newly-rediscovered actress as the once overly-forehead-creased Bajoran Ensign Ro Laren from Star Trek: The Next Generation, but what casting director has she been plowing to get in basically EVERYTHING awesome in TV-land these days? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE her as an actress and she owns every role she takes on, but really, who gets this many parts in so few years? I’d thought I’d take a second from our usual Homorazzi obituary notices to appreciate one of the bigger and better thespians of TV today.
Born January 8th (for days after me) in 1965 (quite a few years before me ;), Michelle Forbes of Austin, Texas quickly followed her passion for acting all the way to New York where she was discovered and got her first role on the Soap “Guiding Light”… Now, I don’t watch this one, but in true soap tradition, the girl ended up playing both Sonni and Solida… that’s right, she played her own twin sister. I love it.
