TV Moments That Brought Us To Tears

by Andy Harris

I find it fascinating that some of the most memorable moments in TV sitcoms are those that move us to tears. I guess it's because those moments that bring sadness are in great contrast to the show's purpose: to make us laugh.

Check out '24 Heartbreaking TV Moments..." , some from comedies, some from dramas. The one that stands out most for me is on M*A*S*H, when Radar came into the operating room to announce that Lt. Col. Henry Blake was killed on his way back to the U.S. after his discharge.
