* ''Film/CitizenX'': The Soviet Union is a bureaucratic nightmare where the vast majority of people are poor regardless of what they do and the government will deliberately cover up a Serial Killer to maintain the party line.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The universe has some individual-story settings that qualify as full-blown Crapsack Worlds. Particularly glaring examples include Thal-[[SignificantAnagram Kaled]] War-era Skaro in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E4GenesisOfTheDaleks Genesis of the Daleks]]", Varos in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E2VengeanceOnVaros Vengeance on Varos]]", and Androzani in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E6TheCavesOfAndrozani The Caves of Androzani]]".

Thal-[[SignificantAnagram Kaled]] War-era Skaro in "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E4GenesisOfTheDaleks Genesis of the Daleks]]", a contaminated wasteland torn by a brutal ForeverWar, in which both sides are as bad as each other and the one guy with a plan to end it is a fascist lunatic who intends to commit genocide on both of them and replace them with something even worse... and he succeeds.

The story and the society depicted consist entirely of insane and/or absolutely horrible people fighting each other to the death for entirely selfish reasons, with the Doctor and Peri helplessly caught in the crossfire and the Doctor dying as a result.

* ''Series/TheSopranos'' gives us a world where, at any moment, [[AnyoneCanDie you can be killed]] by [[TheMafia mobsters]]. Crime is rampant, even more so than in our world, to the point in which said mobsters get away with every murder they commit [[spoiler:([[KarmaHoudiniWarranty even though most of them gets their comeuppance at the end of the series]])]]. As if that was not enough, there are a lot of [[AxCrazy psychotic people]] out there who could hurt you [[DisproportionateRetribution for the slightest offense towards them]]. It's telling something that the most remotely likable characters are {{Punch Clock Villain}}s.

* ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'': The first series starts off with him accidentally (more like not lopping off his uncle's head (said uncle absolutely despised him despite not knowing him at all and was willing to use him as arrow fodder because of it), and throughout the series Blackadder just keeps sliding further down the social food chain. It is a case where the ugliness of all ages is this being PlayedForLaughs. The first season is the Dung Ages pretty much with dirt, poverty, the plague, crime-infested counties, dung, wars at the drop of a hat, a warmongering king who causes wars at the drop of a hat, witch hunts and more dung. Even the Prince of the Realm himself isn't safe from the violence much of the time mostly because of the aforementioned cruel kings, ruthless witch-hunters and bloodthirsty criminals. The second season gives emphasis on the reign of terror of the Queenie and how easy it is to end up beheaded and like in the first season there are equally horrible people who vie for her position and as for the heads of the Anglican Church they turn out to be depraved loan-sharks. Also the only available remedy for most ailments is leeches. The third season has the retarded Prince living in luxury while everything outside the palace is pretty much a hell-hole filled with intellectual psychopaths, political psychopaths and higway-men who are also psychopathic. This is complicated by the fact that it is ridiculously easy to rig at the elections. And the fourth well is self-explanatory considering that it was the bloodiest world in history at the time and the incompetence and sociopathy of the heads. Human life has little to no value and those who survive the insane orders that they receive have to live in squalor and have rats as snacks to survive anothey day.
