* ''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.
