** A segment of fans also prefer to ignore the majority of the events of Season 4. Which featured the [[TheScrappy highly loathed Initiative,]] [[ReplacementScrappy a new boyfriend for Buffy, ill received by fans]] [[InvincibleVillain and the equally loathed Frankenstein Monster, Adam]], even it means losing out on "Hush", one of the series' best episodes. Even those who don't ignore the events of Season 4 tend to ignore the episode "Beer Bad", which is easy, since it has no bearing on the overarching plot, and is generaly regarded as the worst episode in the series.

** Some fans of ignore everything after the classic series (the first 26 seasons). "Recap/DeathComesToTime" is sometimes used to justify this, [[spoiler:as the 7th Doctor dies here]], though nearly everybody thinks of "Death Comes to Time" as [[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]]. Others are fine with the 1996 MadeForTVMovie, but not the revival series. There are probably a few who insist the movie never happened and Christopher Eccleston is the Eighth Doctor as well, but more common is keeping the whole movie, except that Paul [=McGann=] never uttered the words "I'm half-human." These words are blasphemy, as the Emperor of the Daleks pointed out. And as the Series 4 finale appears to confirm -- there had never been half-human half-Time Lords before. An IDW comic explains away the whole "half-human" thing as being a trick he played on the Master with mind games and a half-working chameleon arch. "The Apocalypse Element" also gives an explanation for why Time Lord technology responds to human eyes. Series 9's finale [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E12HellBent "Hell Bent"]] broached the possibility that Eight was telling the truth for the first time in almost 20 years, but nothing is confirmed ''or'' denied -- the Twelfth Doctor just asks [[spoiler: Ashildr/Me]] if it actually ''matters'' what he is.

*** This later actually may have been removed from canon. Paris says on screen late in the show that he's never gone Transwarp. This directly contradicts "Threshold" and [[WildMassGuessing can be seen as proof that episode never happened...or that he repressed the memory, didn't want to bring it back up again, or the writers goofed]].

** After the [[GainaxEnding finale]] and other controversies of season three, some have applied discontinuity to the whole season. A milder variation is to simply disregard the last episode, preferring to end the story at episode 17.

* Quite a bit of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' fans want to either forget [[DorkAge season]] [[PostScriptSeason Eight]] and like to think the show ended with the SeriesFauxnale that closed Season Seven, or anything after the season Four finale, because season five is when the show had a huge tonal shift and two out of the three sisters became AuthorAvatar Mary Sue characters due to their actresses becoming producers, most noticeably Phoebe, who the fandom called [[ItsAllAboutMe PhoeME]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is growing increasingly independent from the beloved book series, and has made numerous alterations to character development and the storyline which the viewers who have read the books largely pretend did not happen. The prime example is [[spoiler: Jaime raping Cersei during the third episode of the fourth season.]] Granted, it's not really referenced within the series as well, making it easy to pretend didn't happen.

** A group of Highlander fans took on the name Clan Denial because they deny Richie's death and the sixth season. Richie's actor Stan Kirsch even gave a shout-out to the group at one of the fan conventions (which can be seen as an extra on the [=DVDs=]). That said both Kirsch and the show's head writer have defended the killing off of Richie (who was actually killed off TWICE in the series with his second death occurring during the bad future of the It's a Wonderful Life-series finale).

* Many fans choose to completely ignore the third season of the original ''Series/LandOfTheLost'' where Rick Marshall was (PutOnTheBus?), Uncle Jack substituted and the series essentially dropped in quality. The serious, thought provoking sci-fi was replaced by ''[[Series/GilligansIsland Gilligan's Island]]'' antics. Some fans prefer to consider the end of season one to be the real ending. Or pretend that the final season one episode occured at the end of season two.

** ''A lot'' of fans (even Jack fans) disown the episode ''Stranger in a Strange Land'', which mixes borderline incoherent flashbacks involving possibly psychic tattoo artists in Thailand with a plot on the island where Jack must be examined by Isabel, an apparently powerful Other who gets to decide if he stays or not-apparently above even ''Ben himself''-who... had never been mentioned before or since. Only one line of that episode is worth remembering for the later series. ''Fire + Water'' (where Charlie kidnaps Aaron to baptize him) and ''The Other Woman'' (where flashbacks show that Ben is in love with Juliet and in the present Daniel and Charlotte go on a quest to a DHARMA station to vent poison gas) are also frequently ignored.

* Depending on who you ask, ''Series/{{Millennium}}'' ran for one, two or three seasons before getting run into the ground and getting an inconclusive send-off in an episode of ''Series/TheXFiles''.
* Many fans of the E4 series ''Series/{{Misfits}}'' disavow the later seasons. How many seasons of “Misfits” there really were depends on who you ask. Some fans maintain that the series ended with [[spoiler:the departure (PutOnTheBus) of series regular Nathan Young, the death of recurring character Nikki, and the remaining cast members trading in their original powers for new ones]] at the end of series 2, while others will claim that the series ended halfway through series 4, [[spoiler:when Curtis Donovan’s [[HeroicSuicide committing suicide in order to avoid spreading the "zombie infection"]] marked the departure of the last original cast member from the series.]] Either way, most agree that Series 5, the last series of the show, never happened—between [[spoiler:the fact that all of the original Misfits had been either killed off or PutOnTheBus]] and the general deterioration of the plot and the cohesiveness and consistency of the storyline and characters, most would rather not acknowledge that Series 5 ever happened.

The first ending [[spoiler:follows the original series of events after Jess is forcibly dragged a year into the future by Luke. In this series of events, Rudy, Jess, Finn, Abbey and Alex all have to band together to stop Helen, Sam and Karen—also known as the Jumper team—who have lost sight of their original goal to become actual superheroes, and have killed dozens of people.

In the altered timeline, Jess stabs Luke to death in order to stop him from messing with her timeline, Rudy 2 preemptively disbands Jumper after finding out what they would have become before he and Helen leave England in order to pursue their relationship away from Rudy 1, and the whole squad, presumably, lives happily ever after.]] Many fans choose to pretend that the altered timeline in the second ending never happened, as it was anticlimactic and completely negated the emotional impact of the first ending, not to mention the very nature of the second ending went against a lot of what “Misfits” as a series stood for.

* ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'': Although the standard of humor is held up quite well, many fans ignore the [[PostScriptSeason 2001-03 Christmas trilogy]] because it completely ruined the perfect ending of the original finale; the 1996 Christmas trilogy, where the Trotters at last achieve their dream of becoming millionaires... apparently only for Del to lose it all on the Far East stock market. (Though they did gain a sizeable portion of it back through Uncle Albert's will in the final, final episode.)

** Almost nobody counts series 8 as canon, either, because the tone of the series was so completely different from series 1-5/6. The first five series balanced comedy with moments of genuine pathos-the crew being lost and alone in deep space, developing as characters, and learning to cope with their lives in the face of their plight. Series 8 dropped all of this: it brought the crew of the ship back in an AssPull moment and became focused on slapstick, thus losing much of its dry humour from the earlier series. You'd be hard-pressed to find a Dwarfer who really liked series 8.

This is due to character derailment brought on by plot driven writing to continue a third season of the show. As a result this is often seen as a JumpTheShark moment of the series.

** ''So many'' people would like to ignore [[spoiler:Charlie Bradbury's]] death in late season 10, and that includes [[CreatorBacklash much of the cast and crew as well]] - besides the fact of it being a hugely egregious case of [[spoiler:BuryYourGays]], it was considered a massive case of CharacterDerailment enforced by show-runner Jeremy Carver (and Robert Singer) even when damn near ''everyone'' pointed out to him that it was stupid, that [[spoiler:Charlie could easily escape through the nearby window instead of cowering]], that the character's emotional response made zero sense, and most significantly that the fallout of it in the next couple episodes could still be achieved without [[spoiler:killing off Charlie]] at all. Notably, when asked about it at [=ComicCon=] that year, ''everyone else'' on the panel literally turned their backs on Carver and put him on the spot to show their absolute disapproval, with his attempted rationalising of the decision met by booing from the audience. The icing on the cake is that Kim Rhodes (who plays Sheriff Jody Mills) has stated point-blank that if the writers ever decide to bring Jody back just to kill her off like that, she will quit the show outright (forcing them to implement TheOtherDarrin) even if it means ''violating her contract and getting blacklisted for it''... The decision is ''that'' widely loathed, even by people who weren't fans of [[spoiler:Charlie]].
