** No-one in "The Robots of Death" is a normal or even functional person. The Doctor and Leela are the sanest people in the setting, and that says a lot (it's Leela's first time off her miserable and religiously oppressive planet, and the Doctor's a MadHatter who likes to pick on her for fun). Uvanov bullies Zilda out of sexual attraction, Poul is a bitter and coldly-detached spy repressing his {{Phobia}} and eventually succumbs to a meltdown, Capel is a MadScientist terrorist with an OedipusComplex...

Uvanov bullies Zilda out of sexual attraction, attraction and a sense of working class bitterness, and Zilda covers up for her feelings of inadequacy about her poverty with upper-class snobbery and contempt. Poul is a bitter and coldly-detached emotionally-repressed spy repressing who uses sarcasm to hide his {{Phobia}} feelings and eventually succumbs to a meltdown, Capel {{Phobia}} meltdown. Borg is a MadScientist terrorist bullying {{Jerkass}} who sadistically picks on everyone around him for fun, up to and including making death threats, and insists he's done nothing wrong when called on it. Chub is so much of a privileged snob that his reaction to a robot trying to kill him is anger that it would dare touch him. Dask is a smug, tedious knowitall in love with an OedipusComplex...the sound of his own voice and with a [[OedipusComplex really]], ''[[RobotWar really]]'' weird fondness for robots.

* All the ''PushingDaisies'' regulars have to deal with some scarring stuff, but they tend to take it with a great deal of dignity. Ned, Lily and Vivian are the most messed up, but even they soldier on quite well.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' runs rampant with this. John Connor suffers from post-traumatic stress and the sheer weight of BecauseDestinySaysSo, Sarah Connor has to deal with raising her son through the hardest time of his life, relationship issues, ''and'' fighting to save the world without killing anyone, Derek Reese is just plain sociopathic and suffers from enough PTSD for a battalion of Vietnam vets, and ''don't even get started'' on the mountain of psychological issues with Cameron....

* ''Series/NipTuck'': Christian Troy's mother was raped by his father and then given up for adoption. The adoptive father sexually abused Christian. Sean [=McNamara=]'s father was abusive towards Sean because he had a cleft lip. Dad left the family when mom secretly paid to have Sean's lip fixed. Sean's ex-wife Julia slept with Christian on the eve of their wedding and became pregnant with Matt. Sean believed that Matt was his son until a DNA test revealed that Christian was his biological father. Julia's mother Erica was emotionally abusive and neglected Julia for all of her life. Sean and Julia's daughter Annie is ignored by both of her parents and eats her hair out of stress. Youngest son Conor has lobster claw hands, Matt married Christian's ex-fiancee, porn star Kimber and had a baby with her. Kimber and Matt got hooked on meth. Matt's done some really crazy shit, but most recently he turned to a life of crime while ''dressed as a mime'' and is now in prison, having just killed his prison husband. Liz Cruz seemed to be above all the crazy, but she married Christian at the end of season 5 and divorced in the first episode of season 6. Even Christian's adopted son Wilbur has some dysfunction. His mother Gina met Christian at a sexaholics meeting and his biologial father was part of an orgy that Gina hosted. It looks like Nurse Linda is the only same person at the asylum that is [=McNamara=]/Troy.
