** 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.

* Due to SeasonalRot and ExecutiveMeddling, the second half of Season Two of ''Series/TwinPeaks'' (or the Wyndham Earle plot) is considered Discontinuity by fans. [[ExecutiveMeddling The network pushed for the show's main storyline to be resolved early]] leaving the writers grabbing at reasons to keep Cooper in ''Twin Peaks''. After we learn that [[spoiler:a possessed Leland Palmer was the murderer]] the rest is filler up until the awesome [[DavidLynch Lynch]]-directed finale. Where the series ends is up for argument.

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' fans would pretend that the spin-off sequel ''Series/{{Joey}}'' never existed. [[CreatorBacklash Even co-creator Kevin S. Bright agrees with them]].

Added DiffLines:

* Most fans of ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' would rather ignore the two reunion movies. Both Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy have considered them to be an OldShame to the series.


Added DiffLines:

* Whatever you say to any fan of ''Series/ISpy'', it's best not to mention [[Film/ISpy the movie]].


Added DiffLines:

* Quite a large number of fans of ''Series/{{Maverick}}'' refuse to acknowledge the existence of Beau or Brent, but especially the latter.

* Some fans of the British TV series ''Series/TheAvengers'' will tell you that the series ended when Emma Peel found out that her long-lost husband was still alive. Most of that number, and a few others, also deny the existence of ''The New Avengers''. Oh, and whatever you do, don't mention [[Film/TheAvengers1998 the movie]].

* Most fans will tell you that Peter Marshall was the only host ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' ever had, and that Paul Lynde was the only occupant of the middle square. You might be able to get away with saying the series continued after Charley Weaver's death in 1974, with George Gobel taking Weaver's seat in the lower left square.
