* Early on in ''Series/{{Fringe}}'''s fourth season, the dialogue is filled with unsubtle commentary on how it feels like something is missing and there's a void in the world. As if we're going to forget that one of the main characters got [[RetGone erased from existence]] without the other characters talking about it unconconsciously.

** "Pangs", where Willow rants about how evil Thanksgiving is and how every person is responsible for the wrongs committed against Native Americans. This is taken to the point where she doesn't want the team to stop a murderous Native American ghost. Finally the evil, soulless vampire Spike tells her to quit bitching, since what happened to the "bloody Indians" was no different than what happened to every other conquered nation throughout human history.

'''Xander''': Good. Just so that's clear.

* The drugs/magic episode, "Wrecked", is probably the most blatant metaphor in the whole show.

** The original series was unique for its era in that it was likely the only show [[EverybodySmokes in which no one smoked]]. GeneRoddenberry had originally cast Majel Barrett as the second in command of the Enterprise, a feminist first for the time, but was put under pressure by his producers to put cigarettes into the show. He refused, so they gave him the ultimatum, cigarettes or Majel. Majel did finally make it in in a more traditional role as Nurse Chapel.

*** Part of the reason for the angry reaction to the pro-life aesop is that the episode is not exactly subtle when it continually refers to the creature as a 'baby'. The episode then tries to pass itself off as pro-choice by giving all the female characters the choice to kill the creature while the (all-knowing) male character takes off with a casual "It's not ''my'' planet." Clara makes the choice not to kill, and [[BabiesMakeEverythingBetter everything turns out okay]], with all the natural disasters and deaths caused by the creature being forgotten about.

* The New Zealand TV soap ''ShortlandStreet'' does this ''all the time''. The 1998 episode in which Jenny Harrison appeared on a television show to rant about the poor state of the New Zealand health service is probably the most anvilicious scene of Shortland Street in its 16-year history.

* The US version of ''QueerAsFolk'' was a tutorial on how to be an "acceptable" gay person in the US, running along the lines of: get married in Canada, [[NoBisexuals don't be bi]], don't be angry at homophobes, remember that God loves you after all, adopt children and be nice to your mother.

* The final scene of the final episode of ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' is a ridiculously anvilicious message about the dangers of overdeveloping modern robotics. Or maybe "Treat your creations with respect", or "do not enslave artificial lifeforms".
