** Also, Mayim Bialik would go on to star as a supporting character twenty years later in ''TheBigBangTheory'', a show which, depending on who you ask, derives most of it's humor from perpetuating the same old geek and nerd stereotypes.

* ''{{Series/Blossom}}'': Anthony gives Blossom some brotherly advice concerning a boy at school in the form of a BeNiceToGeeks/GiveGeeksAChance speech, pointing out that "The world is run by geeks." This was in the early 90s. Flash forward to The2000s. People are getting quite weary of signing the praises of the likes of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and other geek billionaires due to the monopolies of their respective companies and their greedy business model. And Americans are now much more aware of how Silicon Valley mostly works not so much to solve world problems and improve the quality of life but to create products that make more money for corporations.

* ''I Love the New Millenium'': In VH1's show, while discussing Rihanna's [[EarWorm "Umbrella"]], the commentators note how she was discovered by Jay-z. Cue the joke about how [[DomesticAbuse Beyonce will probably want to beat Rihanna with an umbrella.]]

** In the episode "2010" (which aired in 2000/2001 but takes place in 2010), it is stated that General Hammond died of a heart attack a couple of years previously. Don S Davis (General Hammond's actor) actually died of a heart attack in 2008. The series does TheCharacterDiedWithHim and had Hammond die off screen of a heart attack, after which the latest BC-304 ship was named after him.

** The same episode does have a heartbreaking real world example though during the otherwise hilarious funeral scene when each character observes Grandma Forman's open casket and we hear the thoughs that run through their head. Laurie reflects on how life is complicated because you "get all old and die...thank God I'm young and hot!" In light of the death of actress Lisa Robin Kelly at the age of 43 it's cringe-inducing.
** At one point Red fakes a heart attack to get Kitty to get off his ass about something. A few seasons later he actually has one. Additionally, the "Cat Fight Club" featuring Red imagining how he thought the year 1997 would turn out and bemoaning that he'll have a heart attack before getting a jetpack. At first a joke about there being no jetpacks in 2000 (the year the episode aired), little did Red know how right he was.

* ''TheSoup'': Made hay with an AlternativeCharacterInterpretation of reality show ''Jon and Kate Plus 8'' that portrayed Jon as a henpecked husband to needlessly bossy Kate; one skit took an argument over coupons and ended it with him committing suicide. As it turns out, the marriage was indeed miserable, and while ''The Soup'' -- irreverent by nature -- kept up with the show and its stars even after they officially filed for divorce in June 2009 (the show continued for a while as ''Kate Plus 8''), one episode joked that it was "just kind of sad now".

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6g3KD6CYfyY This appearance]] by Robert Blake on New Year's Eve 1976, includes a discussion about what happens when Blake fights with his (then) wife, Sondra Kerr: "The blood flows," he says. In 2002, Blake would be arrested and tried (though ultimately acquitted) for the murder of his ''second'' wife, Bonnie Lee Blakely.
