Sometimes watching TV is simply a nice, relaxing way to unwind after a long day.

Other times, however, TV can be stressful to watch. Like really, REALLY stressful.

In fact, sometimes an episode is so intense, you might not even be able to sit through the whole thing.

Maybe the Euphoria episode "Stand Still Like the Hummingbird" (Season 2, Episode 5) literally had you on the edge of your seat the entire time because Zendaya's heartbreaking performance as Rue was just so raw and real.

Or maybe it was really hard for you to get through the One Tree Hill episode "With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept" (Season 3, Episode 16) because the subject matter was so dark.
