These super uncomfortable scenes are a huge part of what make TV shows seem relatable and funny. I mean, if everything were perfect all the time, shows would be so boring! In honor of the upcoming season two of MTV’s Awkward, I’ve decided to put together a list of the best awkward moments in television history. Check ‘em out, and let us know which is your favorite.
And Now, Let’s Start The Show!
The first time Seth and Summer had sex – The OC
Let’s be real: losing your virginity isn’t always as perfect and sweet as some movies and TV shows make it out to be. Sometimes it’s just super weird and awkward. The OC showed this so perfectly when Seth and Summer had sex for the first time. Everything started out cute and fun, and then, BAM, fish sex. It happens to the best of us, guys. And I’m kind of happy it happened to these two, because hearing Seth tell Ryan about it? Even more awkward and hysterical.
That time Dan’s heart got eaten by a dog – One Tree Hill
Honestly, this might be the funniest/most awkward scene of television history. I mean, a dog snatching a human heart moments before the operation? It just doesn’t get much better than that. Everything about this scene is ridiculous (in the best way). First of all, why is there a dog in the hospital? Second of all, why does everyone stop and stare but no one tries to grab the dog? This is awkward perfection.
When Jimmy got shot – Degrassi
I am not in any way making light of school shootings, but we all have to admit that this super dramatic Degrassi scene was just a little bit ridiculous, not to mention really cringe-worthy. This kid was supposed to be Jimmy’s friend, and then all of the sudden he’s shooting him and paralyzing him? It doesn’t get much more uncomfortable than that.
When Aria tells her parents about her relationship with Ezra - Pretty Little Liars
I have no idea why these two thought it would be a good idea to come clean to her parents about their totally illegal/creepy/still-somehow-cute relationship, but they did, and so this happened. It was so uncomfortable to watch that I kind of wanted to turn my TV off. From Aria’s little brother punching Ezra in the face to her parent’s completely understandable shock and disgust, this had to be one of the most awkward scenes in PLL history.
When everyone finds out Blair still loves Chuck – in the middle of her wedding – Gossip Girl
Oh, Blair. How did you not see this coming? Even though I was totally rooting against the marriage of Blair and Prince Louis, this was still a little hard to watch. I mean, she was up there smiling and getting married in front of hundreds of people, and then everyone gets a text message with proof that she loves someone else. Like, video proof. I felt awkward just looking at her face and it wasn’t even real.
Speaking of awkward, MTV’s Awkward features maybe the most awkward moments of all and that’s exactly why I can’t get enough of it. I wouldn’t trade those totally uncomfortable scenes for anything. The season premiere is on tonight at 10:30/9:30c on MTV.
