WARNING: Spoilers for TV during the week of Jan. 8
The Emotional Attachment TV list is made up of the shows, moments, episodes, characters, and social media posts that register on our impact scale. They either pack quite the emotional punch during any given week of television. Or they leave us feeling nothing.
The scale is from 10 to 1. Here’s an idea of the attachment levels. Anything in between is of varying degrees:
The Emotional Attachment Scale
10 — No attachment. Nada.
5 — Medium attachment. Bordering on High.
1 — Highly attached. Slightly obsessed. Tears may occur.
