11 Great '[TV Show] in 60 Seconds' Videos

Watching Landline TV's 'Dexter' in 60 Seconds' video reminded us how much we enjoy the 'In 60 Seconds' format.

The phenomenon really took off on YouTube with a number of movie plots edited down to one minute. Full television series aren't as simple to cut down with so many characters and story arcs each season. However, there are some excellent ones out there and we unearthed 11 of the best.

The tone of the videos vary greatly -- some are meant to be informative, others humorous. They are created from actual clips, or re-enactments, or animation, or even feline theatre. A few focus on a specific character, or season, and some portray the show's broader themes. You'll enjoy all of them, and leave a little more educated.

'Dexter' in 60 Seconds'
The inspiration for this article, the video was created for Babelgum Comedy's "In 60 Seconds" series. Landline TV made it before season 5, so true fans will notice some missing elements.




'The Office '- 99 Jim Halpert Camera Faces in 60 seconds'
Actor John Krasinski has become known for his many facial expressions directed at the camera on 'The Office.' This super fan collected 99 different examples.



'Mad Men' in 60 Seconds'
Also from by Landline TV, this parody spoofs the larger themes of AMC's flagship show and everyone's favorite misogynist, Don Draper.




'Damages' in 60 Seconds'
Direct TV began running season 1 of 'Damages' earlier this month and released this video to promote it. They will be rerunning all four seasons in order and end right before the premiere of season five.



'LOST' re-enacted by Cats in 1 minute'
This video is how Tremendous News decided to say goodbye to 'Lost.' Everything else is summed up in the title.



'GLEE' re-enacted by cats in 1 minute'
Another hilarious work from Tremendous News, with some of the same cat photos as the 'Lost' video. It's if you actually watch 'Glee.'



'Scrubs' - Elliot Reid moments in 1 minute'
You do not have to be a 'Scrubs' fan to laugh at these moments. The video collects some of the best scenes from one of the funniest females in sitcom history.



'Homer's life in 60 seconds'
'The Simpsons' created a hilarious and surprisingly touching spoof of those time-lapse slideshows that follow a person aging. The video sums up Homer's life up to season 19, episode 9.



'Breaking Bad' Season 1 in 60 Seconds'
AMC released this promotional video when season 2 of 'Breaking Bad' premiered. It does an excellent job summarizing the first season and will inspire you to watch more.



'LAW & ORDER' IN 30 SECONDS'
This is half the length of the others, but it's funny enough to watch twice. The animated short sums up every 'Law & Order' storyline, ever.
