Why, Dukat? Why did you kill Jadzia?

The show 'Friends' is interesting because so many people felt like they grew up with it,"

Don't even tell me you didn't grieve!  I won't believe you.

You ARE a leaf on the wind.

I've never cried about a character passing away. I have been happy because a character died. I'm looking a you Lori from TWD.

They weren't my favorite characters, but this one got me...

Just watched the whole thing last year, late to the party.

Got me and my wife too, then we realized how farking selfish they both were. Jin could've gotten out. They willingly orphaned their daughter.

Now, what gets me EVERY FARKING TIME is when Vincent lays down next to dying Jack.

I just watched the Red Wedding episode of GoT last night for the first time, so I'm kind of feeling that today.

When they killed Starbuck the whole BSG cast/crew went into revolt. Turned out to be harder than expected to get everybody to stop quitting and come back to work.

At least I get to say goodbye.

Thats part of what got me too... sad and angry at same time, plus the fact they went like trapped rats...
Sadistic writers...

John Sheridan's 20 years running out. That entire episode. Damn. You know what's going to happen and it still gets you. However, knowing that L'Orien takes him to go with the first ones is heart warming.

Axel had potential. Carol and him would have made a nice couple. They were both people who's life improved with the plague hitting. They certainly had a bond forming.

Though the actual DEATH didnt get me, as we knew it was inevitable, when Carol had to kill Lizzy was a pretty well executed episode, both writing wise and performance wise... I think Walking Dead is one of those shows that is HARD to illicit a strong response, as it is more unlikely ANY character would live, than they would eventually tire emotionally or physically, and eventually get it from either the dead or the living... its a pretty nihilistic landscape...

Axel was the white prisoner. He might have been a con but he seemed like a kind hearted soul.

When Lizzie got the Of Mice and Men treatment that was hands down the best scene of the series. Some complained that the actually shooting was off screen but I think that made it better.

That one didn't hurt me, just felt like such a waste of redemption... more of a logical tragedy to me than an emotional one...

I agree that the offscreen made it better.... Hitchcock did not need to show a lot to make it stick in your head, rely on the audiences imagination, embrace them enough so they IMAGINE IT... good writing can do that, and this was one of the best written of the series...

So, having empathy for ANY loss, whether real, or in fiction, (with fictional losses being a REAL humans interpretation or retelling of a REAL loss) makes one a loser? Hmmm... maybe I should not care at all about ANYTHING! Thanks for the advice!

You do realize however, not caring about anything is a serious sign of a disorder?
