* ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'': One second season episode revolves around a Venezuelan delegation visiting Pawnee. They spend the entire visit [[NouveauRiche bragging about their oil wealth]], [[ConspicuousConsumption throwing wads of money around]], mocking Pawnee for being so unimpressive, and generally acting like [[RichJerk rich jerks]]. Five years later, between the drop in oil prices and general financial mismanagement, [[http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/venezuela-army-controls-huge-queues-people-waiting-buy-food-basic-necessities-1570783 Venezuela is in dire economic straits that are far from funny]].

* ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris''[='=]s series finale, Chris' mother mocks Chris for trying to justify going for a GED by pointing out Bill Cosby got a GED because Bill Cosby was a comedian. In light of the sexual assault allegations against Cosby, it's a pretty good thing she didn't want Chris to be like him.

* He's mentioned above in the 'General' section, but Jimmy Savile once appeared on an episode of ''Have I Got News For You'', in which he was asked what he did in his spare time and replied 'anything I can get my hands on'. After it was revealed that he was a serial rapist and pedophile, the clip was shown on an episode of HIGNFY, and everyone looked severely uncomfortable.

** In early season seven, Meredith is lamenting her fertility problems and jokes that April probably has a great uterus. [[It becomes less funny several seasons later when April finds out her unborn son has a congenital defect and dies shortly after being born]]

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Hodor is a mentally-challenged stableboy for House Stark capable of only saying his own name. This quirk made him very endearing to fans and [[EnsembleDarkhorse easily popular]]. Come Season 6 and its revealed his handicap was caused by [[spoiler: Bran accidentally [[MindRape mind-raping]] him when he was just a young teen and ordered him to "hold the door" so he and his friends could escape from an undead horde. The process destroyed his mind and all he could say was Hodor. Therefore, the whole point of his existence was to serve as meatshield and sacrifice himself for others.]]

* On ''Series/TheRedSkeltonShow'', Red often told stories in his monologue about his family- his wife Georgia, and his children, Richard and Valentina. The cute jokes are very hard to watch if you know that his son Richard died of leukemia just short of his 10th birthday, and Red took it very hard. Later, he was divorced from Georgia, and Georgia committed suicide on the 18th anniversary of Richard's death.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/RedDwarf'': managed to pull this in a single episode, mre specifically in series VII, episode "Stoke Me A Clipper". The opening shows dimension-hopping hero [[TheAce Ace Rimmer]] rescuing a princess from parallel-dimension Nazis, a process which involves jumping out of an aeroplane, skyboarding on a ''live crocodile'' gunning down a platoon's worth of Nazis in midair and performing several stunts on a motorcycle. Ace gets shot int the process, but only quips "This is my best top, dammit!" (as befits his macho character) and goes back to work. However the rest of the episode gets dark, since it is shown that Ace is not only dying from the wound, he's also a HardLightHologram, which in turn means that the real Ace (who was a semi-frequent guest character in earlier series) is dead, and probably has been for some time.
