14 Scenes That Should Have Landed on the Cutting Room Floor

at .

Chances are if you were Tweeting while watching any of the below unbelievable TV moments, you used the #SMH at some point.

It's hard not to when you wonder how in the heck these scenes ever made it to air.

If we missed any of the moments you think should have landed on the cutting room floor, add them to our list!

1. A Wedding Hijack

A Wedding Hijack
There's stealing your moment and then there's flat out copyright as we saw on The Flash. If Oliver and Felicity were going to get married, that should have been addressed in a separate plot strand on Arrow. It felt like a cheap way for the writers to overcome the burden of having Oliver and Felicity at odds leading up to their own wedding.

2. Betty's Serpent Dance

Betty's Serpent Dance
Betty doing the sexy, seductive serpent dance in front of Jughead, all the Serpents, and her MOTHER was one of the most "WTF?! Why?! Make it stop!" Moments on Riverdale to date and they could have just not did that at all. It actually made me uncomfortable. How many alter egos does Betty have? Was that Dark Betty or a new 50 Shades Betty? Do they forget that these teens are supposed to be like 16-years-old?

3. Reeves and Torres Getting Competitive

Reeves and Torres Getting Competitive
While NCIS Season 15 Episode 9, "Ready or Not," was otherwise mostly entertaining, Torres and Reeves giving an (almost literal) Abbott and Costello routine over a ticking bomb about what to do made me want to scream at the writers, editors, and producers who thought that scene was a good idea. Sometimes there can be a fine line between comedy and idiocy, but this one drove right over it and through a brick wall. Guys: it's a bomb. Leave the room and let the bomb squad handle it. See? Not that tough a call!

4. The Death of a Clone

The Death of a Clone
MK's death on Orphan Black was brutal, barbaric, grotesque and never should have made it on air. It was so senselessly violent that it had my blood boiling. There's kicking a dying woman while she's down and then there's Ferdinand going to town on her. The sound effects and everything just, it seriously left me wondering what they were thinking with that death scene and I'm getting mad all over again just thinking about it.

5. A Terrible, Soapy Days of Our Lives Moment

A Terrible, Soapy Days of Our Lives Moment
That awful re-enactment of Will's murder on Days of Our Lives. Fans were outraged and disgusted by the original, and the whole point of bringing WIll's character back to life was to correct that, so who thought we wanted to see those graphic, brutal scenes in full detail AGAIN?

6. Crazy Mona's Dollhouse

Crazy Mona's Dollhouse
The series finale of the Freeform hit Pretty Little Liars concluded with Mona in all of her crazy glory with the mother and daughter locked below her store in France, apparently. How the heck did she get them there? It's no wonder the show is over because it became downright awful.

7. Worst. Pie. Ever.

Worst. Pie. Ever.
So yeah, I get that the series is going darker and more twisted with each season of Gotham but cannibalism really hits such an ICK button for me. I'm all for the shock and awe of the messed up origin stories of our DC-verse characters, but holy gag-reflex, Batman. It was horribly cheap emotional blackmail to force Penguin into gorging on the Sweeney Todd-inspired meat pies made from the homeless and a waste of Robin Lord Taylor's considerable talents to boot. Furthermore, the motivations behind Professor Pyg's exploits are so mired in crazy that it's not even clear if he understands his reasons. If there was a plot-related purpose behind such a brutal power play, I might be able to stomach it but, as it played out, there was no way for me to swallow it even in such an over-the-top season.

8. Larry David Crosses the Line

Larry David Crosses the Line
I have to go with Larry David's opening monologue on SNL. Holocaust jokes in general are not very funny, but we really didn't need to hear jokes about hitting on women in concentration camps. The whole thing just felt odd and uncomfortable.

9. Big Blunder

Big Blunder
They could have spared us all that abomination of a season where only two people actually played Big Brother. It was a total sh*tshow, and they should have just pulled the plug on the season early. Don't ask me how long I'll be badmouthing the season because the short answer is FOREVER.

10. Imaginary Scary

Imaginary Scary
I love Jenna Elfman, but Imaginary Mary was doomed before it even received a time slot. The concept had promise, but the writing was lazy and the laughs were few and far between. The title character of Mary was too hokey and acted as more of a cheerleader for Jenna Elfman's character, Alice. It would have made for a far more entertaining series had Mary been a mischievous character that wreaked some havoc in Alice's adult life.

11. One Step Forward, Two Back

One Step Forward, Two Back
So many people were excited about Tyler Posey's stint on Jane the Virgin, especially when his character casually revealed that he was bisexual. There was this great episode where Jane had to unpack that and sort out her feelings and Adam educated her, and overall it was a fairly decent arc that was quietly groundbreaking for the LGBT community and fans, and then shortly after they ruined if and his character by making him all flaky and abandoning Jane. It was such a problematic and controversial choice after this huge step. It had fans bitter for weeks. They could have just left that out or something.

12. A Pretty Crappy Ending

A Pretty Crappy Ending
Seven years of build up just to find out that it was Alex Drake, a character we never met and Spencer’s secret twin on Pretty Little Liars? I could have accepted it because sure, it was shocking, but many fans figured t out beforehand so I was kind of expecting it. But the most infuriating moment had to be Mona keeping both Alex and Mary in her doll shop is France. Listen, I get that there are many unrealistic moments on the show but this one takes the cake. How would Mona ever get away with this? How long could she play it off? We need a sequel....

13. A Weed of a Series

A Weed of a Series
Not even the great Kathy Bates could save this lame Netflix comedy about an aging hippie running an LA cannabis dispensary. I guess they thought the setting would give the show a topical edge, but it was just a dumb workplace sitcom with some stereotypical pot jokes mixed in. Canned laughter, hacky writing and stale jokes combined to make this half-baked show a real buzzkill.

14. Riverdale's Existence

Riverdale's Existence
Riverdale in its entirety. Just seeing the promos for this series makes me roll my eyes -- I only made it three episodes -- and the way they treat their characters is appalling. Makes me yearn for the Archie comics, at least there were no awkward underage stripteases in those!
