What's the perfect cure for the post-Breaking Bad blues? The blooper reel from the AMC drama's final season, which recasts the devastatingly grim denouement in surprisingly lighthearted terms. Watch as Hank's garage door fails to close! Marvel at Walter White's uncanny impressions of Jack Nicholson and Porky Pig! See more of Bryan Cranston's rear end than you ever wanted to see!
Breaking Bad's gag reels have become popular among fans in their own right, offering an amusing behind-the-scenes look at the show's production. The tradition didn't begin until season 2, but every season after had a video clip that collected the funniest moments from that year of filming. If you haven't seen the blooper reels from previous seasons, cook up some popcorn and clear a little time in your schedule to laugh at the lighter side of Breaking Bad:
