There's a show on TV that is so subtle, smart and hilarious. It's called Getting On and it just began its second six-episode season on HBO. In addition to the new season, you can catch up with the full first season out on DVD on Tuesday. We have an exclusive—and hilarious—look at what you've been missing in the form of one great Getting On gag reel from the Blu-ray, DVD and HD release.

The series, created by Big Love's Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer and based on the UK series created by Jo Brand, Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine, stars Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Mel Rodriguez and Niecy Nash as staffers at a beleaguered geriatric extended care facility.

Borstein and Nash are nurses Dawn Forchette and Didi Ortley, respectively. Rodriguez is supervisor Patsy de la Serda and Roseanne's Metcalf plays Dr. Jenna James, the doc in charge of the unit. It's a place where anything can and does happen.

The show is shot in an abandoned hospital with roving cameras. In the gag reel above, watch the excellent cast struggle with their lines and cues, have dance breaks and run out of pee. Stay tuned for all the glorious noises and laughs Reno 911!'s Nash makes and a Donald Duck impression riff-off.

Getting On airs Sundays at 10:30 p.m. on HBO. The season one set hits shelves on Tuesday, Nov. 11.
