* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Comes up pretty often, with agents lampshading the GenreBlindness of their enemies or fellow agents. Most notable was probably when Radcliffe's robot went crazy and tried to take over the base ([[spoiler:actually he had programmed her to ''seem'' crazy so he could get something without it being suspicious, though she later went crazy for real]]).
-->'''Yo-Yo:''' Someone needs to make Radcliffe watch all the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' movies.\\
'''Mack:''' ...even ''[[Film/TerminatorSalvation Salvation]]?''\\
'''Yo-Yo:''' [[TakeThat He brought this onto himself.]]

-->'''Kara'''(''recognizing that the plot expects her and Barry to do a song and dance number''): Do you happen to have anything original?\\
'''Musical!Winn''': As a matter of fact, I've been working on something all day.\\
'''Barry''': Wow. Things really are easier in musicals.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Barry and [[Series/Supergirl2015 Kara]] -- not for the superhero genre, but for musicals. Both are big fans of theater, so when they're [[MusicalEpisode trapped in a fictional musical]] and have to get to the end, not only do they brainstorm what would make the plot move forward, they also reference other shows along the way, and take advantage of the conventions of the genre.

* ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'': On the 11/07/16 show, Creator/DonCheadle answered that he wouldn't want to take a ride on Elon Musk's latest money pit and be the first black guy on Mars, [[BlackDudeDiesFirst "because then I'd be the first to go."]]

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': Jack O'Neill says when dealing with an Asteroid heading towards earth "I've seen this movie...It hits Paris."
* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': Not just limited to the Milky Way Galaxy: when trapped in a room with a pregnant woman, Sheppard informs her that she's probably going to go into labor because that's what always happens in movies. (Fortunately, it ends up ''not'' happening, though when later trapped on a ship in the next season it does.)
** Similarly, Dr. (Meredith) Rodney [=McKay=] is a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan to the point of Genre Savviness. He even says that Dr. Beckett is their Dr. [=McCoy=], due to his views on Stargate travel (hint: it's [=McCoy's=] view on transporters). After an alien woman falls in love with Lt. Col. Sheppard, he exclaims "Oh God, he ''is'' Kirk!"
* ''Series/StargateUniverse'': [[TheEveryman Everyman]] [[IKnowMortalKombat Geek Genius]] [[UnluckyEverydude Eli Wallace]] seems to share this trait, in large part due to his enthusiasm for science fiction. A promo had him comparing an ice planet to Hoth, and in Air, Part 3 has him warning the expedition party that [[LetsSplitUpGang splitting up]] is [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling a verrrrry bad idea]]. Three guesses as to if he's right or not. [[spoiler:He is, though nothing too dramatic happens. Basically half of the team goes through the stargate to an unexplored planet where they have a heavily implied [[OffscreenCrash Offscreen Death]].]]

* ''KamenRiderExAid'': The setting is based on a variety of video games, and Emu and Nico's knowledge of gaming puts them ahead of the others. Emu in particular is always prepared for any UnexpectedGameplayChange, rolling with the changes and adapting to new methods of play while his coworkers struggle. When an opponent attacks with a rhythm game pattern, Emu dances along with it, [[NoSell no selling]] the attack while a confused Hiiro takes damage. When they're beating on Burgermon, Emu saves the day by cooking burgers as that's the kind of game Burgermon was made to represent.

* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'': In "And Then There Was Shawn," while the kids are in detention, and things begin looking terrifying, we learn that Shawn is very Genre Savvy when it comes to [[{{Horror}} Horror movies]], quickly pointing out the [[AloneWithThePsycho dangers of splitting up]] and the fact that [[DeathBySex virgins never die]].

** In"A Long Walk to Pittsburgh", Cory is upset that Topanga is moving to Pittsburgh and wonders how their relationship will be affected. Shawn tells Cory he's worrying for nothing as he's seen [[TheMovingExperience this plot]] several times on sitcoms and the episode always ends with the character not moving after all. It's {{Subverted}} at the very end, when Topanga says goodbye and rides off in the moving van. Shawn is shocked that the van didn't turn around at the last second and asks "what kind of TV show is this?" Then its DoubleSubverted because Shawn didn't realize that the characters were actually in a MultiPartEpisode and that meant Topanga wouldn't come back until the end of the second part (which she does).
