I just saw the Fresh Prince episode last month, agreed it had quite an impact.  I'm sure it would have hit me harder seeing it at a younger age.

For me it was watching General Savage's B-17 go down in a death spiral at the start of the second season of "12 O'Clock High" - that was the fall of 1965 for you whippersnappers..  12OCH was my show in first grade, and Savage was my hero.   I kept turning to my father and saying "He won't die, will he?", and Dad didn't say anything. 

I still watched the show afterward, but it was never the same.

How I Met Your Mother season finale scene. Not super sad or serious but just really well done in my opinion.

Sons of Anarchy has a few scenes that are tough to watch. Opie's death. Jax and his mom's final scene.

Fresh Prince clip was the first one I thought of as well.

I also thought of the ending of the Wonder Years. It is sad, happy, and serious. I was surprised how emotional I got at the time, and even now it hits me. 

I still say, in its totality, The Wonder Years was the best TV series of all time.

Born in 1979, it was a weekly staple in my house for all 6 seasons it was on. Especially since my parents grew up in the time frame the show is based on.


The kids in the show were "12" when it started and 17 when it ended and me being 9-15 while the show was on, it was just perfect.


Not to mention EVERY boy had a crush on Winnie Cooper at the time.


Doesn't hurt that the actress went on to get a BS in mathematics like I did (to go along with engineering). To be honest, I didn't know she did that until well after I got done with college.
