    Tear jerker TV programmes

    Post by La Bomba on 15/11/2015, 10:22

    I'm watching Australian vet to the rescue and it's so interesting but heartbreaking too. I really enjoy programmes like this and want to keep watching to see the outcomes for the animals but at the same time, I'm often watching them through tears cry

    What about you? Do you enjoy them?

    What sort of programmes jerk your tears?

    I can't watch any of the vetinary/animal rescue type programmes as I find them just too upsetting cry I am a complete wuss in general but especially in relation to animals. I cry at a lot really Embarassed I watched a programme (which might only have been in in Scotland actually) about the new Glasgow 'super-hospital' which opened recently after 4 hospitals merged. The children, including tiny babies, in the children's hospital that was part of it just about finished me off. There was a tiny baby called Barbara who'd been there since birth having heart ops I think (my sobs drowned a lot of it out) who broke my heart.  I can cry at just about anything though, sad and happy loser

    I cry at everything so make a point of not watching anything with animals or babies unless I'm on myself own and not wearing stupidly over priced mascara lol

    Most recent show to get me crying was The Walking dead lol it's not even a sad show! It's zombies haha! (please no spoilers! I'm only on season 4!) but there was a bit where something happened and somebody was just holding their head and I burst into tears and when my friend (male) asked what the swear word was wrong with me, I just started wailing that it was all soo sad, whilst I had tears streaming down my face like niagra falls lol

    Another crier here, everything sets me off! cry Mr Neener finds this very amusing, he likes putting inspirational/emotional YouTube videos on just to see how much I will cry. I am particularly bad with anything about animals who survive against the odds and come out the other side.

    This one always, always gets me going:  https://youtu.be/uwPh8YH1L-Q

    I'm a big cryer - it's weird though sometimes the obvious 'this should make me cry' things don't get me at all, and I sit there thinking 'I am a monster and dead inside' but then something really daft will set me off, and I'll be proper sobbing at an advert for Colmans shepherds pie mix or whatever.

    I don't tend to watch vet/animal rescue stuff as I get too upset, although sometimes I'll watch that supervet programme I think it's on 5. And I always watch Paul O'Grady For The Love of Dogs. It often does make me cry but I love it so much.

    Guaranteed to set me off every time is the Royle Family Christmas special when nana dies.

    Know what's made me blubb within the last hour? I'm watching X factor (I know, I know, please don't judge me) and one of the girls in one of th groups nearly fainted after the song finished and they had to get her a chair and water. She didn't actually faint but for some reason I'm sitting having a mini blub:lol:

    Kitchen Impossible has had me bawling recently. Michel Roux Jnr takes your people with disabilities and tries to train them to work in catering/hospitality. It's funny and heartbreaking and very eye opening. I just love it and hope there's another series.

    I never used to cry at TV until I had Finlay, it's like he broke something in me!

    I bawled my eyes out at Eastenders when Shabnam had a stillborn baby, so much so that Mr Dr comforted me and he welled up a bit too and he hates Eastenders

    The One show had me in floods of tears the other week, they'd reunited a long lost family and it was all very emotional. I can't watch that programme with Davina Mccall that does a similar thing as I'd run out of tissues!

    Adora I know what you mean about daft things but the shepherd's pie mix advert got me too the first time I saw it, it was about a Dad making Shepherd's Pie to cheer up his daughter and it made me very sad that my Dad isn't here to make me one unhappy

    Solidarity hug , yes that's what got to me too. Proper wailing to myself 'there's NOBODY to make me a shepherds pie waaaaaah'. Embarassed

    Yes! Even though I make a frankly awesome Shepherd's pie myself and don't need a packet to help me. Stupid adverts.

    - Were either of my dads still here, they would be highly unlikely to make me a shepherds pie anyway.
    - I prefer cottage pie - and I make a mean one using Delia's recipe.
    - packet sauce mixes are not an acceptable thing to cry about

    And yet ....... gerrin

    Oh girls, I'm nodding away at your comments. My dad was a great cook and made lovely things. I'm not sure he ever turned his hand to a shepherds pie though lol
