I would like to hear about moments in film or TV that totally shocked you. I mean, un-spoilered, real time surprised you.
I have two, and they are kind of girly, but I will never forget how amazing it felt to experience these moments. Both, actually, are TV moments that took place before the Internet or twitter were a big deal.
(That is another interesting topic: how does social media change and alter how we watch. I am watching Breaking Bad mostly because my twitter feed, comprised of people who like stuff I like, went nuts one day about something that happened on that show.)
1. Kimberley takes her wig off and reveals the huge scar (Melrose Place. I know, dumb show, but ask anyone who watched it, that was a crazy awesome fucking scene.)
2. ER, S5, Carter is stabbed in the back and falls, and sees that Lucy has also been attacked. This one is
almost totally due to the Lo Fidelity All-Stars song 'Battleflag,' which gets louder and louder as the episode progresses.
My reaction to both these scenes was to call a friend and say "DID YOU SEE THAT!!?!!!?!!!?" And they were like "YES OH MY GOD!!!"
I would love to know what made you guys feel that way.
