** 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]].

* A good number of fans of ''Series/TheWildWildWest'' would like to forget each ReplacementScrappy in season four, paticularly Jeremy Pike, while Ross Martin (Gordon) was recovering from a heart attack. For die-hard fans, [[Film/WildWildWest you'd best avoid mentioning the 1999 film]].

** 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 "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.

** Depending on how you view this episode, some fans pretend that Series 1 Episode 8 [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E8FathersDay "Father's Day"]] never existed because none of the established rules on the space-time continuum that involves Reapers ever came back after that episode.

** There's a short, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33ShortTheBattleOfDemonsRunTwoDaysLater "The Battle of Demon's Run: Two Days Later"]], which claims that Sontaran warrior Strax, an ally of the Doctor introduced and killed in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar "A Good Man Goes to War"]] and who reappeared as a member of the Paternoster Gang in [[Recap/DoctorWho2012CSTheSnowmen "The Snowmen"]] having been resurrected offscreen, was actually OnlyMostlyDead and had convinced himself he was dead. There are fans who refuse to acknowledge this due to thinking that the significant changes to Strax's personality (from an otherwise-serious LargeHam to a ''massive'' {{Cloudcuckoolander}}} only make sense due to ''actual'' death and resurrection.

** "Love and Monsters" is the one of the most controversial episode 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/MatchGame'': The 1998-99 revival hosted by Michael Burger never happened, what with its overly lewd writing (one contestant pulled off a DarkHorseVictory with an answer that had to be censored), unnecessary rule changes (picking from one of two punny categories instead of the traditional "A or B"), TotallyRadical feel (overly amped-up announcer, stock cartoon sound effects in the intro), or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking reduction of the celebrity panel from six to five]].


Added DiffLines:

* Many game show fans like to pretend that the 2002-04 revival of the ''Series/{{Pyramid}}'' franchise, hosted by Donny Osmond, never happened. This incarnation was derided for a bevy of unnecessary rule changes, loud techno music, an overly-dark set, and FakeDifficulty (usually in the form of overly contrived writing and inconsistent judging).

* Fans of ''Series/FamilyFeud'' will ignore anything not hosted by Richard Dawson and/or Ray Combs. This includes the entirety of the 17+ year run of the current version which is currently on its fourth host.

* Fans of ''Series/FamilyFeud'' will ignore anything not hosted by Richard Dawson (1976-85, 1994-95) and/or Ray Combs. This includes Combs (1988-94), but even the entirety most accepting fans ignore the first three years of the 17+ year run revival begun in 1999. This is due to the original host of the current version which is currently on its fourth host.revived version, comedian Louie Anderson, being seen as [[ReplacementScrappy by far the worst person to helm that show]].



* ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' has had multiple revivals over the years. The original ran from 1963-77, with revivals in 1980-81, 1984-86 (titled ''The All-New Let's Make a Deal''), 1990-91, 1996 (titled ''Big Deal''), 2003, and an ongoing one begun in 2009. Opinions vary on most versions other than ''All-New'' and to a lesser extent the contemporary version, but two specific ones are usually given the Discontinuity treatment:
** The 1990-91 revival was the first incarnation not hosted by longtime host Monty Hall. Taking his place was Bob Hilton, who was far more experienced as an announcer than a host. Reception to his hosting was so poor that Monty was brought back out of retirement to helm the last few weeks until a replacement was sought, but the show got the axe instead.
** The 2003 revival went to Billy Bush, and was so poorly received that it was canned after only ''three'' episodes. It was quickly dropped for being TotallyRadical and tasteless (one stunt had a contestant peeking under the skirts of three different men).

* Almost all of the original ''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.

** Many fans who otherwise consider all the shows canon consider ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' to be entirely non-canon a la Star Wars fans with the Prequels, due to perceived massive dips in writing quality and deviations from established canon even within the show on several occasions. Interestingly, these same people tend to accept the later made ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' despite its also muddling with the canon and timeline (in [[TimeTravel more ways than one]], for at least being watchable.
