*** A less serious disorder involves the belief that the last episode of LawAndOrder ended with Anita's phone ringing, making the episode a cliffhanger in the traditional style of the series.

** Several fans rejected the 2016 revival, ''A Year In Life'', due to Rory's [[TookALevelOfJerkass attitude]], her RomanticPlotTumor with Logan and the ending where she told her that [[spoiler:she's pregnant]].

** Most of fandom does not view the 30th anniversary special "Dimensions In Time" as {{Canon}} because the plot... well, it would be more accurate to say, "What plot?" An ExpandedUniverse novel also wrote the adventure off as being a nightmare of the Doctor's. The fact an article in the magazine "Doctor Who Adventures" about The Brigadier did not mention him meeting the Sixth Doctor (when mentioning the other Doctors he had met) suggests the BBC has [[CanonDiscontinuity struck it from canon]] as well. Fans of ''Series/EastEnders'' do not consider the special canon either due to the fact some characters who have died were depicted being alive in a future version of Albert Square, and the fact ''Series/DoctorWho'' is portrayed as a fictional television program within the show (and ''vice versa''). WordOfGod was desperate, almost pleading, for it to be canon, because, to his thinking, bad canon was better than no canon.

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E10LoveAndMonsters "Love & Monsters"]] is the one of the most controversial episodes in the revival for being an awkard cartoonish comedy [[spoiler: and ending with the protagonist's love interest living in a stab of concrete]]. For some the episode never happpened or [[UnreliableNarrator Elton's account of the events are distorted]].

** Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', the longest running series series, has its own various fanon discontinuity points:



** ''Series/TorchwoodMiracleDay'' is widely disregarded for a variety of reasons, such as [[TheScrappy the American characters]] or the [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks Americanization of the series in general]] and the plot concerning Jack's immortality and the resolution to the series (specifically, the revelation that [[spoiler:Rex has gained a form of Jack's immortality]]). Let alone the fact that trying to place the series in the ''Series/{{Doctor Who}}'' timeline without contradictions is a nightmare. Other fans believe that the decidedly-[[AnythingThatMoves omnisexual]] Jack is now [[ButNotTooBi "too gay."]] On the other hand, some fans like to think of ''Miracle Day'' as an AlternateUniverse.

** It's probably best that you don't mention the ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' crossover episode with ''Series/NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation'', either despite being one of the best episodes in the franchise. As far as ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' goes, ''The Next Mutation'' is itself an example of CanonDiscontinuity.

Power rangers fans and people that don't care for the Ninja Turtles aren't particularly keen on it either, with it considered the worst episode of In Space.

****To be Fair, in interviews Amit Bhaumik has made clear that the reference he made to "Scorpion's Rain" was intended as an In-joke to the prank, and not an actual attempt to insert it into continuity. AS with how the statement that references it is Phrased, "''But I thought the Zeo rangers defeated the machine empire''" is technically true within the franchise's canon. As The rangers don't know the final blow came from Rita and Zedd.

* ''Series/MASH'' fans tend to mainly consist of three groups: "First Three Seasons 'Funny M*A*S*H'" (Which may or may not include TheMovie that started it all), "Anything from Season 4 Onward" and "Accept The Whole Thing". Then there are those who prefer omitting the last minute or so of the Season 3 Season Finale so it just ends happily with Col. Blake safely returning home.

* Almost all of the original ''Series/DarkAngel'' fandom ignores season 2 or rewrites that season's first episode to remove its most offensive plot device - the virus that makes Max deadly to Logan. New fans [[JustHereForGodzilla watching the show for]] the actor JensenAckles usually do the exact opposite, not bothering with the first season except for Jensen's episode "Pollo Loco"; they get a [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation very different interpretation]] of the show and its characters.

* ''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.)

** Others also pretend the two-part finale doesn't exist, especially since much of it wasn't in the original scripted ending.

** Others also pretend the two-part finale doesn't exist, especially since much of it wasn't in the original scripted ending. And others accept the finale until Fraser's voiceover at the end, and say the events in the voiceover were just stories Fraser told Kowalski, and not real events.

* Many fans of ''Series/FamilyTies'' will disregard the last three seasons, after Andy [[SoapOperaRapidAgingSyndrome was aged a few years]] - which, quite naturally, contradicts the continuity of the earlier four seasons. Furthermore, much of the fandom had mixed feelings of Season Four. That season introduces Mallory's new boyfriend, Nick - who many find to be annoying. However, that season also introduces Ellen - Alex's girlfriend, who is played by the actress who will later become MichaelJFox's [[RealLifeRelative real life wife]].
