** The first season feels quite a bit different from the other nine seasons. The plots are more slow-paced and episodic, scenes start and end abruptly, and the characters are less quippy and there's quite a bit of a SentimentalMusicCue. There are a lot more group scenes with all 6 together and less focus on singular pairings with separate subplots. The fashions look a bit more plastic/artificial than they would in the next nine seasons, and it's probably the only season where Matthew Perry has long (or, at least, long-ish) hair.

* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'': Most characters are fairly different from how they were in the pilot. Trina started as "talented, but not enough to justify her ego" and became "untalented". Jade was significantly deepened, saving her from being an Alpha Bitch. Robbie, while still not suave, became capable of normal conversation with the opposite sex. Rex's design is very different from the pilot, including paler skin, a thinner body and neck, paler complexion, and smaller eyes/mouth. Cat's hair is no longer curly as well. Probably the biggest changes include Beck and Tori no longer seeming to be romantically interested in each other, and Cat's [[{{Flanderization}} transformation]] from normal-but-ditsy in the first season (particularly the pilot) to full-on dumb in the later seasons.

* ''Series/SoulTrain'''s first couple of seasons used a far different intro animation, featuring a childishly cartoony multi-colored train, rather than the classic big gray one, and the set invoked an old "juke joint" rather than the discotheque/dance club-type sets of the majority of the run. The 1971 pilot in particular seems odd: In addition to the above, there was a completely different announcer (with a higher voice and a more excitable style), the editing seems to borrow more from ''Series/LaughIn'' than its counterpart, ''AmericanBandstand'' and instead of showing short clips of the musical guests in the intro, there the guests (Gladys Knight & The Pips, Eddie Kendricks, The Honey Cones and Bobby Hutton) were shown dancing among the rest of the "Soul Train ''Gang''"

*** Why would that be strange? The 2nd Doctor had a fondness for sweets (he actually started the whole "jelly babies" thing more commonly linked to Tom Baker). In the UK a lemon sherbet is a type of hard boiled sweet with a fizzy centre, not a cold dessert or a cocktail.

* ''PoliceCameraAction'' had a slightly different feel for the first three episodes; Alastair Stewart's British episode was emphasized a lot but then reverse {{Flanderization}} set in; Hampshire Police and Surrey Police footage went OutOfFocus after 1995, and he started to wear less charcoal or grey-coloured suits, instead, in later seasons, began to take on a more casual look (except in situations where it was [[JustifiedTrope not necessary)]]. Also, his tone changed from formal British accent to a more informal tone. The early episodes ''Police Stop!'' (later retitled to the show we know today), ''Police Camera Action!'' and ''Safety Last'' have a ''very'' different feel to later ones; the narration style seems different too. By 1997, the show was semi-{{Retool}}ed, to mix foreign footage with British footage, leading to the show we have today.

** 1st season episodes "The Corbomite Maneuver" and "This Side of Paradise". Spock refers to his father in the past tense in both episodes, as if he were dead. In the 2nd season episode "Journey to Babel", we learn that Sarek of Vulcan is very much alive.

* In the earliest seasons of ''Series/TheJoyOfPainting'', Bob Ross spoke in a more instructive manner, compared to his very soft dulcet voice, and he wore thick glasses that made him look much older. There were also cuts and background music, as opposed to the episode being done entirely in real-time without music.

** The SequelSeries ''90210'' at first focused partly on members of the original cast; while it the show was always slanted towards the new teens Kelly Taylor was [[FakeGuestStar in most episodes of the first two seasons]] and Brenda and Donna also showed up. After the end of season two this angle was dropped entirely.
