** Near the end of ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' where [[spoiler: Mr. Collins died but got resurrected by Alex, the actor of Mr. Collins died 5 years later because of lung cancer]].



** [[AmoralAttorney Saul Goodman]]'s amusing cowardice and one-liners becomes a lot less funny knowing about the failure of Jimmy's attempts to be a legitimate attorney in ''Series/BetterCallSaul''.

* The Granada ''Series/SherlockHolmes'' episode "The Dying Detective" takes on a whole new significance when you know that Jeremy Brett, who played Holmes, died the year after it was filmed.

* [[Series/TheColbertReport Stephen Colbert's]] astronaut training clips are a bit less funny since the wife of the shuttle pilot who helped him was [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Tucson_shooting targeted for assassination]] -- she was shot in the head but survived; unfortunately the mentally unstable shooter killed six other people, including a federal judge and a little girl who was born on 9/11 who had just been elected class president.

** The episode "Blood Brothers" features Patrick Swayze as Pvt. Sturgis, a wounded soldier diagnosed with leukemia (which in the 1950s had a much higher mortality rate than it does now). Almost thirty years after the episode aired, Swayze himself died of cancer (it was pancreatic cancer, not leukemia).

* The ''Series/ICarly'' special, "iPsycho", shows a depressed Gibby saying that he has nothing better to do than to watch ''DiffrentStrokes'' reruns. This episode aired the same week [[Series/DiffrentStrokes Gary Coleman]] passed away. Considering the "Awww" that came from the canned laughter, it may be possible that they added it at the last minute to pay tribute to him.

* ''Series/RedDwarf'': The series VII episode begins with [[TheAce Ace Rimmer]] jumping out of an aeroplane, skyboarding on a crocodile, wiping out a base full of Nazis and rescuing a princess. During the process, he gets shot, and shrugs it off with the phrase "This is my best top, damnit!" to general laughter at the parody of James Bond machismo. Then, over the course of the episode, it becomes a lot sless funny as it is revealed that, in order; the real Ace Rimmer died off-screen and has been dead for some time, the current Ace Rimmer is a hard-light hologram, and the bullet he caught damaged a critical component, meaning the holographic Ace is also dying.

** The [[WhamLine line]] "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E6Dalek You would make a good Dalek.]]" becomes a lot more meaningful and tragic by the time of learning about the fate of [[spoiler:[[Recap/DoctorWho50thPrequelTheNightOfTheDoctor the Eighth Doctor]]. Cass' treatment of the doctor with comparing the Time Lords are no different than the Daleks eventually brings this doctor through DespairEventHorizon.]]

** One of [[TheReveal the reveals]] in Series 8's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E5TimeHeist "Time Heist"]], and the Doctor and Clara's discussion about it, is a LOT more poignant after the three-part Series 9 finale. [[spoiler: As the enslaved Teller killed to protect its imprisoned mate, so too does the Doctor resort to desperate, in his case almost universe-destroying measures (including shooting the General and forcing a regeneration) to save Clara Oswald from the grave. And he too experiences brutal treatment at the whims of a villain on the way to temporarily abandoning his principles]].
