* In ''Series/{{Mash}}'', during Charles Emerson Winchester's first episode, he spends a lot of time showing his spoiled upper class roots. But at the end of that episode, it's made it clear he was going to be a much more complex and capable character than Burns: He calmly listens to his phonograph as Hawkeye loudly discovers his snake-in-the-bed prank has been turned back on him.

* ''Series/{{Limitless}} begins with protagonist Brian evading the FBI using the NZT powers, dodging traffic perfectly, and evading being shot at by jumping into the path of a moving subway train. Then it freezes, and the narration begins.

* Mrs. Richards in the ''Series/FawltyTowers'' episode "Communication Problems" sets the tone for her general behaviour by barging into a conversation, demanding Polly's attention, and refusing to listen to anything anyone says. This leads to about the only episode in the show where [[UnsympatheticComedyProgatonist Basil]] comes off as sympathetic, because he's dealing with Mrs Richards.
