. . . Why does Derek Reese not get a mention?

Some good picks, some I've never seen.

I'll second Derek Reese.

Buffy is a stand out because of the way the episode was handled. Brilliant piece of TV.

Sam Tyler's 'death' in Life On Mars, depending on your viewpoint of whether he died or not.

Again a sort of death in the regeneration of Tom Baker and David Tennant in Doctor Who. Okay Tennants goodbye went on a little long but the moments that led to it are fantastic.

Blake from Blake's 7. Having gone missing after two seasons Avon continued to search for him despite his constant comments as to not liking the guy. Then in the finale they finaly meet up with Avon believing that Blake has betrayed them all. The final image of Avon over Blake's dead body is still one of the best endings ever.

Larry Zito from Miami Vice. My fave outside of the main two. Especially poignant because of the way he went. His partner Stan never ran with another and IMO never really got over his death.

Plus I'll add Crow from Firefly. Didn't get to really know the character but for pure shock value the 'kicked into engine' scene is one of Joss's best WTF moments.

Mass murderer Joss has done in too many for me. Jenny, Tara, Joyce, Anya, Book, Wash. Then he went outside of TV and killed Penny.

The man must be stopped.

The only big shocking death from an older series I can think of is the Colonel on MASH. There must be others, but that's all I can think of.

But really, most of their readers are not likely to be familiar with any shows older than 20 years, so it makes sense to keep the scope of the list limited, especially since it's purely subjective anyway.

True, the 18 - 49 demo seems to be the one that matters most.

Okay that's a fair point which means I should have explained myself better. The regeneration was signposted for a long while so that wasn't the shock part of it. It was the fact that after all the build up of the Master and the Time Lords return it ended up being lovable old Wilf that finally needed rescuing and that would start the whole process for The Doctor. Maybe even then it was not so much of a shock but more of a dawning realisation after The Doctor survives the final fight just before we hear the four knocks on the glass.
I stand corrected.

Lt. Col. Blake was the first stunner I recall. Gary Burghoff said the crew had no idea, and when he read the lines, the stunned looked on everyone's faces weren't rehearsed.

Sheriff Lamb on "Veronica Mars" was a shocker.

Mrs. Landingham on "The West Wing", too. And the secret service guy (Mark Harmon played him) who was covering CJ.

Col. Henry Blake on MASH. That one broke my heart.

And yeah, Jenny, Joyce, Tara, Book and Wash, Wesley...

I suppose one's mileage will vary. I was only 12 at the time, and when it happened, I was completely surprised.

PN - er, I mean "Jaynez" - has serious issues discerning reality from fiction. He thinks the movie "Conspiracy Theory" is a documentary, and thinks the real world is all scripted.

'Course, he also uses a whiskey flask for a walkie-talkie and a broken lawnmower for a Segway.

Just sayin'.

I think I screamed when Jenny got it. And I *KNOW* I screamed when Riley did Spike with the stake in the heart! Luckily it was a plastic stake made to LOOK like wood, but I still screamed "NO!!!" - and alwyas kinda hated Riley more after that.

I had pretty much the same reaction when Wash died, too. And Tara. Joyce I kinda saw coming, but then kinda not, too. I didn't scream, but mighta gotta little weepy.

Yeah I forgot about ER. Lucy Knight's death was shocking and at the time, with a show like that, it wasn't guarranteed that Carter would make it.
I thought Mark Greene's was one of the more touching one's on TV. Not shocking in any way but very well played.

As for Max then I have to say that she never stayed dead so doesn't count IMO. There was one episode of the season still to go so there was no way they were really gonna do that. It's like Buffy's 'death' at the end of season 1. To me this list represents characters that stay dead.

I do not dispute your logic, however DarkAngelIsAll has posted in this thread, and it is shocking that he has not trumped your points with a post on Max.

I was the same way. I saw the movie opening night with my dad and he was a little mad at how bummed I was afterward. "You've been talkin' 'bout this movie for more than a year, you think you'd be a little happier havin' seen it. *grumble grumble surly grumble*"

I´m glad that BSG and Dexter got in there but they´ve missed some obvious and awesome ones.. Without spoiling anything I´ll just say TSCC and possibly Dollhouse should have been on there. At least TSCC..

Select to view spoiler:


Derek Reese biting the bullit was quite shocking and awesome, also Camerons "death" is kinda out of the blue. At least in the way it happens but I loved it. And then we have Summer on DH as well.. I knew she would die but I didn´t see it happening when it did.

I don't know about shocking deaths....but the most shocking TV event ever for me was Xander getting his eye gouged out with relish by Caleb. Nothing before or since has ever made me feel as ickified and stunned. so stunned at the time I had to go and get comforted by my housemate...despite the fact I had woken her with my horrified squawking...and I'm not even a huggy person! that's how traumatised I was!

When Highlander's girlfriend died on the TV show. I don't remember her name (I don't remember his name either, to be honest).

As he looked around the place they shared and at all the old pictures of them together while showing a montage of his memories of her, that was the first time I'd heard "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas... a song that was stuck in my head for years, even though I never knew if I'd ever hear it again. I didn't even know the song wasn't a thing that wasn't made specifically for the show until a few years later when I heard it on a cassette tape in my step-dad's truck. (And just remembering how all of that unfolded makes me nostalgic for the pre-internet days where you couldn't just Google something). Upon figuring this out, I immediately went out and bought Point of Know Return and played that song endlessly until I got bored of it.

Dust in the Wind now ranks up there with Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven as a song that makes me cringe every time I hear it on the radio because of how overplayed they are still to this day.

....

YouTube's got it.

Her name was Tessa. His name was Duncan.

I had not seen BSG back then. Agree with that entry, but The Passage is still my favorite episode.

Why not Jaimie Sommers, Steve Austin's fiancee in The Six Million Dollar Man?

Dobson on Firefly?

Jess on FBI: Most Wanted?

The Aisha Tyler character on Ghost Whisperer?
