This TV show was indeed hard to watch for both negative and positive reasons. The high school show perhaps went too far at times. However, it didn’t want to shock the viewers but it happened after all. The show’s narrating character, Hannah Davis, echoed her story and the reasons that drove her to suicide at the end. But apparently, seeing the character sitting in a bathtub and dragging a blade across her arms was really disturbing.

It becomes quite difficult to keep watching Game of Thrones because of its brutality. However, no one could have imagined that the plot would show an infant getting murdered just like that. Such violence might trump actual violence in real life as well. With that being said, Game of Thrones constantly tried to echo loud that nothing is off-limits and the limits exceeded when the TV show highlighted Baratheon Baby getting murdered. That exact scene was perhaps the most disturbing.

Few characters in The Breaking Bad inspired quite some hate, for example, Todd Alquist. He was indeed a child/girlfriend/dream murderer who managed to portray some of the most inappropriate killings in the TV show industry.

But apparently, it went all disturbing for the audience when Todd murdered Andrea and Jesse saw it all in horror.

Attempting a school shooting scene on television or movie is indeed difficult. And it becomes even difficult to portray it in the right manner on screen as it might leave the audience feeling mentally disturbed and horrible. That’s what happened when American Horror Story tried to glorify the school shooting scene. As a result, the makers received quite a negative response from the viewers; and the audience took to the internet speaking up against the show and its horrible content. It appeared to be shocking because TV viewers are not normally used to it– especially when they do not have any parental control to restrict their children from watching such shows.

When talking about the greatest TV drama shows of all time, The Americans has to be there. It was quite intriguing to watch the Jennings dealing with significant family problems when trying to hide out from the entire world. However, when Keri Russell echoes loud that Elizabeth and her story is filled with terrible incidents, we come to know quite a lot about the family. The same episode highlights Elizabeth’s nightmare where she sees Paige, her daughter, discovering her pastor killed at the hands of her parents. While the scene was portrayed subconsciously, it was no less than a disturbing event.
