    random question, but whats the saddest thing you have ever seen on a tv show?

    for me it is the finale of six feet under, more specifically the last 6 minutes
    every time i see this i want to cry, i balled at the end of the episode when i first saw it haha

    this and the finale of the shield are the only two shows to ever make feel sad enough to cry.

    I would say the very end of that one episode of Futurama where Fry finds his dog. Thats the closest I've ever come to crying from a TV show.

    To be honest, I'm can get emotional easily so I cry on almost everything.
    I've started watching TV Series just recently, I was too busy watching Anime back then (which I stopped recently; felt kinda repetitive and boring altogether).
    So I've started watching How I Met Your Mother, and I actually cried when at the finale of the 2nd season and at the end of Season 4 ep5.
    And I think that's it, for now. I'll go watch Six Feet Under right now, seems interesting =D

    Yeah, I know. I was in tears. You're just thinking - oh, Fry found his dog and is bringing it back to life! And then they come along and show you its life.

    When Amber Volakis from House dies in the bus crash. So sad. Not much else though except from Oprah I guess. I mostly watch comedy on TV.

    Appa's Lost Days in The Last Airbender. Fucking saddest thing I've seen.

    And yes, the thing with Fry's dog in Futurama was really sad.

    The endings to (most) Cold Case episodes.

    And speaking of Futurama, the ending to Luck of the Fryfish. The one about Fry's lucky seven-leaf clover. Not sad or depressing, but totally brings a tear to the eye.

    i agree, with both. cold case always tends to get me down haha

    i think that episode and the sting, and frys dog are the saddest (the music in jurrasic bark is what gets me at the end)
