* ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'': Has a flash-forward that technically, doesn't exist, as the character who envisions it (Derek Reese), came back in time and [[spoiler:killed the inventor of the device that will eventually become Skynet]]. Which means, if he did that, then the person would cease to exist, and...[[AustinPowers oh my god, I've gone cross-eyed]]!

** Every episode has short flashbacks, usually at the end, when some hidden scene is revealed that explains how the Leverage team outwitted their opponent-of-the-week. The pilot also had flashbacks describing each team member. There was also an episode that was done in ''{{Rashomon}}''-style flashbacks.

* ''TheGoldenGirls'': Did several episodes each featuring multiple flashbacks on a common theme. It usually felt like the writers had ideas for gags which were not enough for a whole episode, and was often easily mistaken for a ClipShow. There was also an episode showing how the girls met.

* ''Series/BeingHuman'': Has a beautifully simple one - as the vampire Mitchell walks down a street, internally monologuing, his hairstyle and clothes change to reflect the fashions of every decade since his turning. Being Human has ''lots'' of flashbacks, especially in series two, where every single episode begins with a flashback.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': Parodied in the episode featuring ''[[BoggyCreek2TheLegendContinues Boggy Creek 2: The Legend Continues]]'': During a host segment, Crow, Tom Servo, and Mike attempt to explain a fight that occurred minutes ago via three flashbacks, each blurrier than the last, with none of them adding any new information. Mike then realizes that he was looking for his contacts, and Servo promises his next flashback will have a car chase and explosions.

* ''NewAmsterdam'': The short-lived show has John do flashbacks occasionally, starting with the pilot, where he remembers how he was mortally wounded defending a MagicalNativeAmerican woman, who repaid him by making him immortal until he found his soulmate. Oftentimes, he remembers past lovers (each time, he thought she was "the one"), children, and dogs.
