what are the saddest moments in all of televisions
Is /tv/ really this pleb?
OP pic pretty much did it for me. I was bawling. I think it's because it seems so sudden thank to the "twist," which is the way death really feels. Someone you love is there and then BAM! they're gone. I actually think that's the most functional and least gratuitous twist I've seen because the reveal has a big impact.
The end of "Blackadder Goes Forth" from Hugh Laurie's "I'm scared, sir," through Darling's wish to marry Doris and all the way up to the fields of flowers and birdsong. Such a short period of time but fucking devastating and twists the knife harder in a few minutes than whole series or movies manage.
It was meant to be a tiwst. I don't think it's too hard to pick up on what's going on but it's not confirmed until then and since it's a how you're not sure he's dead until then. I'm not talking about 'winning" a show by guessing the twist but the artistic construction. If they'd wanted to audience to be sure he was dead before than they would have written the episode differently. Jesus.
when I was a kid, I watched a cartoon show where a teacher of one of the characters was planning to retire, then it seemed like she might decide not to retire, then all of a sudden at the end of the episode someone comes in to announce that she'd dead. Later I learned the voice actress had died in real life which is why the character died in the show. It was horribly traumatic. Can anyone remember the name of the show or which episode this was, or was this some awful childhood nightmare? I think it was a main character's little brother whose teacher died. It was awful.
Big Bird..Mr Hooper's not coming back.......
They deliberately try to misdirect you to think it was another of Cox's patients who had died, that whole subplot was there to be misleading.
You could guess Ben died instead, but since it's not confirmed until the end, it's not written in stone until that famous "Where do you think you are? scene.
>They're not actually going to-
>There's no way they'll end the episo-
>Why didn't they jus-
>everyone always talks about Jurassic Bark or Luck of the Fryrish
>never mention Leela's Homeworld
such an underrated episode
Pic related was infinitely sadder. He did what he had to do to help Reinhard. And in the end, he died in Reinhard's place, as one of the most hated men among the inner circle.
The ending of SFU. I cried like a little girl. Even thinking about it makes me sad, and the fucking song gave me PTSD.
The Shields "Family Meeting" is really sad too, but it hits you more in the stomach.
In Naoki Urasawa's Monster at one point the antagonist takes an orphan boy to the red-light district to show him where he was born. The orphan witnesses a woman being raped in an alley and almost kills himself when he realizes that his life was created without any form of meaning beyond adult desires. Nothing in a tv show has hit me more than that I think.
laughter loosens you up, makes you more susceptible to emotions like sadness
a non-sitcom example is the musical Rent. It's got many funny parts, including just before one of the main characters dies and rips your heart out.
"I guess enough painkillers can make even the worst kind of hurt go away. The thing you need to know is that Mara was innocent and Jackson was innocent. They didn't know what they were drinking and their last moments together were happy ones. They left the way I first found them, perfect and innocent. They were innocent and they're in heaven now and we'll always be a family. The guilty ones are me and Vic. Vic led, but I kept following. I don't think one's worse than the other, but we made each other into something worse than our individual selves. I wish I'd never met him. I see it all now. There's no apologies I can make, no explanations I can give, I was who I was and I can't be that person any more. I can't let myself..."
Ooof yeah, shit came out of nowhere especially since your watching it and its just another filler episode and then the tape shows up. And the music there is also pretty goddamn heart ripping
You don't need me to read you a bedtime story
You don't need me... for anything
This one. Like i knew it was Amber, i just didn't get the necklace part until they're like "Whats my necklace made of" and then the next one where they're all saying their goodbyes. And then the one where
Wilson freaks at House like JUST LET ME DIE
Any and all of Raymond Brigg's animated cartoons.
Where the Wind Blows is a soul-crushingly sad movie from start to finish.
Dr. Fraiser scene from Stargate SG1, i don't know why did i cry for a shitty character, i guess sam made me cry there maybe i was afraid for o'neill's death.
>Beth.webm (1.55 MB, 720x576)-[Close]
this scene, it was sad because it was awful. that fucking FAAACE
The beginning of that movie is brutally sad for a kid's movie. I don't think of myself as being a wuss when it comes to sad stuff, but damn that scene kicked me in the foreveralone part of my brain.
Series 4 pretty much broke me. Its hard to pick out something in particular, but what happened to Omar was pretty nuts, as was what happened with Bubbles.
Series 5 seemed less real to me. It had some punches but after Series 4, it was hard to see where they could gone that would have been worse.
I didn't even feel that sad about Dukie, I was too numb by then.
I get sad at the death if Littlefoot's mom mainly because one if my earliest memories was watching it with my mom and she breaks down in tears
There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms
There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves
That's stupid. Reeks of the new writers trying to write heartfelt moments into the episodes but without the quality of the old writing. I hope they had a fine reason for Hermes to be doing that job when it was never mentioned during real Futurama.
The Shield :
"You got enough to eat today?"
"I got you some food"
"Ah, thanks. My favourite, buddy"
I'm sorry Lem ;_;
The last 2 episodes of final season. The scenes with Shane, Ronnie and Vic in the end in particular.
and Both Sides Now
>"The second you start blaming yourself for people's deaths, there's no coming back."
>"Yeah, you're right."
>not a single mention of Bodie getting capped
This isn't a crying-type sad, it's more of a melancholy type sad. Like you're saying goodbye to your friends
> "You see, that button is in the worst possible spot"
> "The second button is literally the key button..."
> "Haven't we had this conversation before?"
> "You think?"
> "I think we have"
> "Yeah, I think we have"
Many moments in Lost but this whole episode was too much.
That always got me until I saw a behind the scenes thing on the DVD. Apparently the set was made out of foam rubber so they bounced around when they tried to run, if you watch it again you can see them trying not to laugh.
only TV scene to make my cry bros
The black community really needs to stop with its whole fathers leaving their kids thing
Ending to Blackadder Goes Forth is pretty sad. To say the whole series and even the last episode is great comedy, then the ending scene plays the horrors of war very straight.
Also That Mitchell And Webb Look, which was very hit and miss, had that Sherlock Holmes sketch that was really sad.
Also The Office UK, when Brent is begging to not be made redundant.
Farscape was great at lulling you into a sense of security. Ironic, given its plot.
Any well written and executed brotherly or war sacrifice / man losing his son, son losing father, selfless heroic deeds. I have never cried from pain as a child (and now ofc) but i have always cried then...
Little easter egg, one of the homeless people you can see in some shots of Season 5 is 'Johnny 50', one of Frank's dock workers. Just shows to go what happened to them once Frank wasn't around to protect them anymore.
Nah.The only good parts of scrubs involved Ted, Jan, Kelso, Cox and Jordan. All the other parts were pretty meh. Taking all that into account scrubs isn't top-tier, it's good/decent but not top-tier. There are better comedies/dramas out there.
It's one thing to not like a season of a show, but these hardcore fans who start spouting shit like "it isn't canon I'm not accepting it as real" are just delusional shippers who need to get a grip.
Same thing happened with season four of Community. But guess what? It's real, it exists. Grow up!!
i wasn't talking about cannon, but it's an awfully made piece of shit., and i never said anything about the cannon, all i said is that when we are recommending it we would usually say "yeah, watch seasons 1 - 8, season 9 is a waste of time
Is it odd that I didn't feel any sadness from the scene in OP's pic? Scrubs is usually more deliberate about telling you what's going on through JD's narration, and for better or for worse I'd gotten used to that so when the twist was revealed I was honestly more confused than sad. I did feel a little bit near the end but really, the scene where Cox lost three patients because of his mistake made me feel more than "Where do you think we are?" did.
I often get sad when i watch the final episode of a great tv show and realise i will never watch it for the first time again.
it happened when i read harry potter as a child and i can already feel it coming with madmen
It's from Band Of Brothers. It's a miniseries of 10 60min episodes about US troop company in Europe during WW II.
Another similar series to watch is The Pacific which is similar but focuses on Japanese front. Most people prefer BoB but I personally like Pacific more.
Both are highly recommended
You got a point there but honestly you can't exactly call a series goat-tier if 90% of the scenes involving 3 main characters(JD, Turk, Carla) aren't good. It may be just me but I rarely found them funny, mostly just annoying.
Last time when Walter and Walter Jr. spoke as friends
Season 2 was weak but I enjoyed the fleshing out Ben. Not sure where they would have even taken it if a season 3 ever happened, but nonetheless enjoyed it.
>Also The Office UK, when Brent is begging to not be made redundant.
Yes! I forgot, that is a really good moment. After being so cocky the whole episode, suddenly he's tearfully begging to not be let go.
Anyone who thinks Gervais doesn't have talent is simply wrong.
Not that this is the all-time saddest moment but people posting Futurama should be ashamed. This episode of Fresh Prince highlighted a heart-breaking cultural phenomenon of black boys growing up without fathers and you want to say it's inferior to a dog who sings walking on sunshine laying on a bed with textbook sappy music. You should feel uncultured and ashamed.
same here, I only watched the first few seasons of Scrubs, and that was when they aired when I was younger. Even then I found the style and characters too obnoxious.
Shows that make a swish sound effect swish-pan cut between scenes are trying way too hard to keep your attention, same with Malcolm. I'd argue Malcolm is worse because the kid talks to the camera, another pet peeve of mine.
Do you know where you are? That's all this place does is judge from a holier than thou standpoint. But the Futurama writers literally pulled all the sappy trope strings at once and it's sad that a subreddit so obsessed with being knowledgeable about the medium would fall for clichéd tripe.
The episode of Boy Meets World when the baby brother is born early and has an infection. Shawn comes back and everyone is sad. Then they show that empty incubator and you're not sure if he's dead or not because the dad is just staring at it.
"Wak her her up to tell her that she's... That she-"
He didn't die there tho did he? Cause there was the first time, and then the second time I thought they just found him dead.
And to add to Skins, the funeral scene where they shoot off the fireworks and then steal his coffin
Man, now hes just so skinny ass dweeb in a wetsuit obsessed with some girl named Nora. Its a crime because he's like the only character I genuinely feel bad for.
And Topanga's just being a bitch the whole time, like what kind of girlfriend are you? Even Feeny the voice of reason was like, yeah everythings gonna be fine.
>He wasn't even a Soldier. He was a musician.
