I don't like audition/talent shows. I don't like Simon Cowell and the whole X-factor thing. But there is something brilliant about Susan Boyle. The sort of person whose life is utterly transformed in 2 minutes. That's TV.

'Our' sister site?

I can't find the clip I wanted but this replacement will do.
I was extremely moved by an 80s Dutch documentary called A Soft Death which showed the lead up and death via euthanasia of a sick, elderly man. The final scenes before the lethal injection was given, those ultimate moments of love between husband and wife, the slow descent into death to the final realisation of the wife she is now alone was incredibly tenderly filmed.
Chills and tears at the same time.

Just watched this clip and it is powerful too.

Yes. Very moving.

I had some speech problems as a kid. Mostly brought on my anxiety and nerves I think and, without a shadow of a doubt, the talks I had to perform at school were the most humiliating moments of my life at that point. I used to stand there sweating like a cunt, red faced and trembling stumbling through some speech whilst people laughed at me.

So this resonated with me. I was also moved by the reaction of his friends too. There was none of that empathy when I was up there I can tell you! My mates were laughing at me too!

No doubt the same thing would've happened there too had the cameras not been there.

A couple from the last and presumably final series of Twin Peaks. Hidden in case of spoilers although I imagine anybody who wanted to see it probably has by now.

Death of the log lady

Where real life and tv collide. Lynch was friends with Margaret Coulson who is obviously dying in real life here. We can all see that. The audience is saying goodbye to the Log Lady and Lynch is saying goodbye to his friend. There is great dignity here. Hawks reaction and the comfort he affords her just by listening is perfect. “My log is turning gold”. The cast are saying goodbye to their friend here too of course.

And the final shot of the light going out. Beautiful.


More Twin Peaks

Cooper meets Laura

It made sense for Cooper and Laura to actually meet. When it did happen, towards the climax of season three it had to be a special Twin Peaks moment and it was.

Who are you? Do I know you? Wait....I’ve seen you in a dream. A dream. Cue music. Where are we going? Coopers hand outstretched...."we’re going home”. That very human desire/fantasy we have all felt at some point to change the past, to rescue a loved one or bring someone back from the dead is encapsulated right here. Right here.

Pretty much everything in Six Feet Under but especially the final montage.

Lots of heartwarming or heartbreaking moments in The Simpsons during its golden age. It's of the several reasons why the show isn't as good anymore.

Janine's cruel punishment in The Handmaid's Tale.

There are three or four scenes in this movie that make me cry. This is one.

Brian's Song



It was quite a year for Caan, who played the title character. I think he did the Godfather right after this movie.

The classic Blackadder World War I final episode packed an incredible punch. I'm not sure I've fully recovered 25 years later.

That's a great call.

On a similar note.



Apparently, they didn't tell Gary Burghoff what the final scene was before he delivered the lines.

Not just Gary Burghoff. None of the cast knew before the recording.

Bodie and Poot’s infamous scene in The Wire.

I can’t watch that Coronations St scene, Len looks and sounds and moves the same way as and is the same build as my Dad.

The bit in The Killing (original version) when the parents identify their daughter. So well done, I was a blubbering mess.

In typical irreverence, Seinfeld handled the death of George's fiancee a little differently

Came on to post just that as one that immediately came to mind. Plenty of others though, not just drama but comedies, soaps and documentaries too. I'm quite the weeper.

There are so many scenes in 'Freaks and Geeks' that it is difficult to choose one, but I think this encapsulates what I love so much about the show - a perfect blend of pathos & humor (though not the greatest audio in this upload)
