** ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': We learn that Reva Connors was the love of Luke Cage's life and he was devastated by her death at the hands of a Kilgrave-controlled Jessica Jones. Every scene with Reva in ''Jessica Jones'' becomes much harder to watch after ''Series/LukeCage2016'' reveals she was complicit in the experiments that went on at Seagate Prison, including the ones that gave Luke his powers.

*** Also from "Into the Ring", Foggy chides Matt for deciding to take up Karen's case, saying "You don't necessarily show the best judgement when beautiful women are involved, Matt." After season 2, seeing what a negative influence Elektra is on Matt can make that line less of a funny one-liner and more like ominous foreshadowing.

** A lot of Saul Goodman's character is less funny when you've seen ''Better Call Saul'' and know about his backstory. For instance, his ring and his Rolex watch are those of his late friend Marco.

** During the Summer of 2013, Creator/JohnOliver guest hosted the show. In one episode, he mocked news networks who were already speculating about the 2016 election with a segment called "Can't You At Least Wait Until Jon Stewart Gets Back?". However, in August 2015, Jon Stewart stepped down as host of the Daily Show, so he didn't get to skewer the 2016 election. And the segment ends with him sarcastically urging Donald Trump to run for president, even offering to write him a campaign check ("on behalf of this country, which doesn't want you to be president, but which badly wants you to run!"). [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Fast forward to 2016, and Trump won the election]], with John conceding he has no defense for that and notes that it's hard to believe that there was a time when people thought Trump's candidacy would be funny.



* ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'': In the "How Is This Still A Thing?" segment on Creator/AynRand, [[SarcasmMode the narrator sarcastically asks why Republicans don't flock to another role model]], such as Donald Trump and his then-fledgling election bid. It appears the GOP took his advice a little too literally, as Trump became the 2016 Republican nominee for US President, and someone that Oliver was reluctant to do segments on until it became clear [[GoneHorriblyRight Trump might actually have a serious chance of succeeding. And he actually won]].

* ''Series/TheDailyShow'': In one episode, Jon Stewart was commenting on the rising unemployment rates, the increasing deficit, and lack of solid political leadership with a very simple "We're doomed!" The day that episode aired? September 10th, 2001.

** In a similar vein, Gibbs was asked in "[=UnSEALed=]" if he knew what it was like to spend every free moment dreaming of being home with his wife and kids, then come home and find that it was all gone. Gibbs replied that that didn't justify murder. Becomes this when you remember that his wife and daughter were murdered while he was in Iraq during Desert Storm. It's even worse considering that [[spoiler:he killed the man responsible]].

*Marvel's Netflix franchise
**''Series/Daredevil2015''
***The season 1 episode "Into the Ring" has Wilson Fisk attempt to have Karen Page killed by having a corrupt guard hang her in her cell in a way that looks like a suicide. A few months later, in July 2015, when a Texas woman named Sandra Bland committed suicide in custody, there were allegations of foul play.
***In "Condemned", a corrupt ESU sniper on Wilson Fisk's orders guns down a couple of cops, including Detective Blake, who'd become a liability. It can be hard to watch after the 2016 assassination of five Dallas police officers during a protest.
**''Series/LukeCage2016'': Pop mentions in "Code of the Streets" that he had a son he lost connection with, and how over the years, he could have sat down in his chair and he never would have known. It's one of the reasons he tries to play surrogate father to young men like Chico. Pop is killed in that same episode, and at his memorial service three episodes later, his son is the first person we see speaking, mentioning how he knew where his father was, and he wanted to reach out to him, even tell him about his grandchild, but he never did.
