    Films Thread got me thinking, what the tv series/ programme that made you cry/sad -

    Little house on the Prairie used to have me sobbing every week, it was so emotional.

    The first TV movie I remember crying at, and I do tend to tear up easily at emotional moments, was Brian's Song.

    I don't usually cry with movies and tv shows but the end of series 2 of the new Doctor Who had me balling like a bitch - when the doctor left rose, it broke my heart. I saw it on a rerun recently and it opened the floodgates again!

    i think Grey's Anatomy would be a good contender for me. Yeah, it can get stupid sometimes, but when they write a decent story it can be deeply affecting.

    like when Denny died! man, i felt horrible! you thought he was out the blue and ok, but then he turns around and dies! plus, it was the one time where i really loved Katharine Heigl because she really hit it out of the park.

    and then when Meredith's mom died, and there was finally some resolution between them. i would've never thought a crappy line like "you're anything but ordinary" would've had me on the verge of crying.

    I've never been attached to any TV show like that.

    The mini-series, Holocaust, on the other hand, was just gut wrenching. It's up there with Schindler's List in my book.

    I cried at Band of Brothers - but again - that was a mini-series rather than a regular tv show, wasn't it.

    Sometimes I can get involved in a plot in a show like Casualty (BBC ER type thing) and get a lump in my throat when the character croaks... but like jason it is more the one off dramas or films, where one has time in one sitting to become involved with the characters, that are more likely to make me cry.

    Oh wait...........

    I forgot........

    The brilliant, final episode of Six Feet Under. That had me in lots of tears. Complete waterworks. Six Feet Under was a spectacular show, never jumping the shark, never compromising, always revealing remarkably fascinating characters of subtle complexity. I believe it to be at least as good as The Sopranos for modern adult drama. The genius of the last six minutes of the series are one of the great moments in television.

    There were a few moments in Carnivale that made water leak from my eyes.

    I agree with you Jason, the montage of each characters deaths got me in tears. It is one of the best scenes in TV history.

    I kinda cried when Boone died in Lost. haha.

    Same for me, the only show that made me as sad was an episode of Without A Trace where a kid hung himself... My god, I was balling for at least an hour after that!

    There's an episode of Futurama when Fry finds the fossilized remains of his dog from 1000 years ago (er, now...well, 2000). The Professor was going to clone Fry's dog for him, but Fry convinces himself that his dog lived a good life without him, but then as the end credits role, we see that the dog spent the rest of his life pining for his lost master, never moving from the spot where Fry left him. I thought it was incredibly sad.

    There's an episode of ER where a teenaged boy involved in a drunk driving accident on the way to the prom suffers third degree burns on most of his body. One of the doctors asks Mark if anyone has survived with such extensive burns, and his says, "Not that I know of." At one point the cameras is looking directly down on the kid lying on the hospital table as the nurses are working around him, and you just know that he's thinking that he's probably going to die, and even if he lives, he's going to be deformed and disabled for the rest of his life, and he starts to cry. (According to wikipedia, the actor, Eric Christian Olsen, was submitted for an Emmy for that role.) I felt so bad for that kid. Even though I knew he was a fictional character, I also know that character represents many real people. In fact, I was so upset by it I didn't watch the rest of the episode, so I never learned if he lived or died.

    I'm sure there are many more, but that's all that comes to mind at the moment.

    I have a couple that stand out:


    1. E.R. where a pregnant mother comes in and Anthony Edwards has to try and save both. Gut wrenching roller-coaster.
    2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer when Joyce dies. Single saddest episode of tv ever.
    3. MASH--the original colonel leaves the 4077 in a helicopter, finally going home. Next scene a letter is read that will rip your heart out. I was a kid when I saw it and just bawled. It was shocking.
    4. Gray's Anatomy--a man and young woman are impaled on a steel rod. Only one can be saved and they tell the one who has no choice and will die. Shattering.
    5. The Incredible Hulk--that damn music to the show always made me sad as a kid but after one episode, can't remember what happened, but the music started and I just started crying thinking about a great-grandmother who died--my first death experience as a kid. That music still gets to me.

    Peeps remember to do your testicle exams. Brian really died from testicular cancer, and they didn't tell that outright in the movie.

    oh, that episode stunned me. I never expected to feel so sad at the end of a cartoon series. The music in the background was killer though.

    I for get what the name of the show was but I cried at almost everyone. These people who were angles changed humans lives for the good. Now I cry at most anything.

    Oh touch by an angel I think it was called
