* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Littlefinger's monologue in "You Win Or You Die" is straight-up instructions to his whores on the surface, but doubles as a description of his FalseFriend relationship with Ned.
--> '''Littlefinger:''' "They know what you are. They know it's all just an act. Your job is to make them forget what they know, and that takes time. You need to ease into it [...] He knows he's better than other men; he's always known it, deep down inside. Now he has proof. He's so good he's reaching something deep inside of you that no one even knew was there, overcoming your very nature..."
** The Hound's captors "accidentally" smack his head on the wagon they are loading him into.
** A once powerful figure who resents a loss of importance and influence to ambitious upstarts manipulates a mass of zealots into becoming a private army of enforcers. These zealots upend society and throw aside the usual political intrigue in favor of brute force on behalf of their patron, but become increasingly difficult to control. The above could be describing Cersei and the Faith Militant in Season 5 or China in the 1960s.

** An episode where Kramer's shower breaks forces him to not bathe for days. His constant scratching and his desperate need for a new shower head makes him look and sound like a junkie. His dilemma makes Elaine's situation at work (she is mistaken for a drug dealer) a lot worse.

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': Murdoch quite frequently solves crimes by using the limited resources of his time to get at a primitive version of a contemporary technology that would be quite familiar to the audience. Other conversations address some of the unforeseen consequences of new technologies. Some examples include:

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': Murdoch quite frequently solves crimes by using the limited resources of his time to get at a primitive version of a contemporary technology that would be quite familiar to the audience. Other conversations address some of the unforeseen consequences of new technologies. There's even at least one plot that strongly recalls what for the audience is a series of historic events. Some examples include:



** Among the inventions mentioned in the episode "Invention Convention" are an analytical engine (a precursor to modern computers), a machine specifically for sending email (they call it "i-mail"), and sound-activated switches. Crabtree even notes the ease of turning off lights by clapping his hands!

Added DiffLines:

** "Back and to the Left" starts with two government officials in an open-air vehicle when there's gunfire and one of them dies from a gunshot wound to the head. The entire event is photographed and filmed. It soon appears at least one shot came from an upstairs window of a nearby warehouse. A man is identified in the papers as the shooter and is shortly thereafter killed. Murdoch and Dr. Ogden go over the evidence and find the evidence of the bullet trajectory doesn't line up, the phrase "magic bullet" is used, and they conclude there was a second shooter. Sounds rather like the assassination of UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy, doesn't it?
