Has there ever been a television show that has touched your heart and left a feeling of loss inside you? This is the hallmark of great TV and I thought it would be great to share this with each other.

I have just finished watching series 2 of 13 reasons why showcased on Netflix.

It is a fantastic and well-made programme, dealing with suicide and other issues affecting high school students.

Although it has kids as the main characters it is not aimed at children at all.

It is one of those shows that leaves a huge sorrow of sadness inside you and leaves an empty feeling, especially if you or someone you know has contemplated suicide or gone through with it.

I recommend this show to anyone who hasn't seen it.

The original Rosanne will always be one of my favourites Just a sitcom but the issues were always very ordinary and relatable

I think I was politicised at the age of 9 watching Robert Kee's History of Ireland.
I remember feeling rage inside and being aware of my Nationalist identity.
The irony being, it took an Englishman to do that for you.

I was only a little chisler when this came out.
But I do remember my parents sitting down to watch every episode.
As did their friends.

Kee spent a number of years in a POW during WWII.
I often wonder how such experiences change people's perspectives.
Or alternatively, does a lifetime of closeted childhood with helicopter parents make you a SJW ?

Very powerful.
The theme of threads is that your modern society is connected by threads

In an urban society, everything connects. Each person's needs are fed by the skills of many others. Our lives are woven together in a fabric. But the connections that make society strong also make it vulnerable.

Its far worse nowdays since the telecommunications revoltion

Just how hardened is your electronic infrastructure to things like a solar flare and waht happens when it all shuts down.
