'80s TV wasn't just Thundercats, Domino's Pizza commercials, and Facts of Life. Remember the very special episodes of your favorite '80s shows? The ones that got pretty dark and quite possibly left you with lifelong nightmares? We're here to dig up some of your saddest TV memories.
Nothing about war is really funny. And yet, for 11 seasons, the ongoing story of an Army hospital during the Korean War not only managed to be full of laughs, but also deeply meaningful, which probably explains why MASH stayed on television for more than a decade.
But it couldn't be all be doctor jokes and cross-dressing conscientous objectors, and MASH had plenty of serious, dramatic moments. The dark and last episode of MASH was arguably the darkest moment of the series. Airing in February 1983, "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen" centers in part around leading character Hawkeye recovering from a mental breakdown. In the pinnacle scene of horror, Hawkeye is flashing back to the source of his mental anguish - he's on a bus, the enemy is nearby, and the passengers have to kill the lights and remain silent or risk discovery.
But there's a woman on the bus who has a chicken, and the chicken won't stop making noise. Hawkeye tells her to shut the chicken up and she does, by smothering it, in order to protect the entire bus of refugees from being found. But we learn that it wasn't actually a chicken, like his fractured memory was trying to convince him. And it's horrific.

The Greatest Enemy - the Robin Of Sherwood S2 finale. Such a great way to write a character out of a series but so sad.

@tracy Smith i remember the episode of FOL where Joe guy raped. I was a kid but the oddity of the tough chick getting raped instead of one of the others was what struck me the most.

Don't be so ironic...this Punky Brewster episode has a very important point what youngsters should learn when they're kids----never left your friends behind---

The Blake's 7 finale traumatised me for a loong time. Still hard to watch today.

The moment that always bothered me was the Highway to Heaven episode Alone. A homeless boy has a cat as his only friend. The cat dies in a fire.

I remember the Thomas the Tank Engine story and of course in the UK, the ending of Blackadder Goes Forth is usually voted the best ending of a TV series on polls, because of the poignancy.

The Geraldo race brawl started when the white supremacist calls the black guy an Uncle Tom. That's when the black guy gets up and approaches him. It's ironic because the black guy was actually a conservative pundit who was known for his feuds with people like Farakhan and Sharpton.
Guardiane Il y a 21 jour
wow, I had no idea about a lot of these episodes. The Thomas episode especially made me laugh but only because it's so horrible I can't believe it lol. What lesson was being taught there? It's also funny because I watched that show a lot as a kid and I don't remember that episode at all. Ah, I miss the 80's sometimes.

8:30 “...too much like a same sex couple?” They were police partners, not “those” kind of partners. What was wrong with them?

Cagney and Lacey also had the domestic violence storyline. Grange Hill and Zamo's heroin addiction storyline. Just say no kid's! I know this is early 90s, but this storyline has always stuck with me, because it's the worst mass killing of characters in a show. Emmerdale Farm killed off some of it's characters, when a plane crashed into the village of Emmerdale. So not only did you have the characters but the passengers and crew as well.

It was Hollywood propaganda at it’s best,that’s why it lasted long

Prisoner Cell Block H... much of it. Nola breaking poor Paddy's neck, Mouse getting burned alive, poor Joan Ferguson's tragic dogs (one was poisoned and she stabbed the other to death while on acid), Rita the Beater having terminal cancer. Tragic. That Thomas episode is wack. I found the look on the Fat Controller's face quite evil. I wonder if he has regrets about that, with hindsight and all that.

I'm part Greek, so the episode where Jesse's Papouli ( Grandfather) passed away, & Michelle was so sad because Papouli was going to show her school class how to Greek dance. It was so sad.. 🇬🇷🇬🇷

well, mash was somewhat true to life, a few of the shows were based on actual incidents one of the shows that they did create were actual experiences that happened during the vietnam war. take for instance, the show of `abyssinia henry'. (where henry dies) was based on where a plane that was carrying children had crashed into the sea.

How could you pick the Punky Brewster episode where Cherie got stuck in the fridge over the episode post-Challenger explosion? I mean, we were already traumatized because we all watched it live on TV while in school, only to have to re-live it a few days later. Real death trumps fake near-death, Grunge.

Darkest for me: St Elsewhere, when Boomer was raped. I had never known that could happen to men until that episode. That episode honestly, actually, changed the way I viewed the world.
