* ''Series/SeventhHeaven'':
** Season Five had only one-word episode titles for all 22 episodes except the first one; this was continued until halfway Season 6. There also was a streak of four episodes (ep. 4-7) titles that all started with a B: "Busted", "Blind", "Broke" and "Bye". These were the episodes that set up Creator/JessicaBiel leaving the show: they were about character Mary's problems which led to her being PutOnABus (or rather, a plane to Buffalo, NY) in [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Bye"]].
** Also, all seasons except the 11th/last, had the names of the last two episodes of the season either be a pt. 1 and pt.2 (i.e. "Love Stinks, pt. 1" and "Love Stinks, pt. 2" for Season 4) or a compound title (e.g. "Boyfriends..." and "and Girlfriends" for Season 2).

* ''Series/IntoTheBadlands'' patterns most, though not all, of the episode titles thus far to sound like English translations of names for martial-arts moves.

* ''Series/{{Blindspot}}'' has done some unusual tricks in their episode titles. In the first season, all the episode titles are strings of words that seem unclear, even meaningless. They are actually ''anagrams'', and the letters in each title can be re-arranged to make phrases which, when strung together with the other episode titles, make a secret message. The titles from the first half of the season sent a warning regarding Jane Doe's identity, the second half was a series of emergency instructions.
** The second season's titles start off the same way: the titles are anagrams which combine to send a warning about "Shepherd's Army". But when the second season resumed after a mid-season break, the titles have become ''palindromes'' (phrases where the letters come in the same order forwards and backwards). The central letter in each palindrome appear to be spelling out someone's name...
** See [[http://blindspot.wikia.com/wiki/Anagram this fan wiki]] for the anagram and palindrome answers.

** Some titles touch on rock and pop music bands and songs: "Twisted Sisters" (Music/TwistedSister), "Barenaked Ladies" (from [[Music/BarenakedLadies the Canadian alternative band of the same name]]), "Glory Days" (see the song by Creator/BruceSpringsteen) and "Summer of '75" (alluding to the song "Summer of '69" by Canadian rocker Music/BryanAdams).

* ''Series/FatherBrown'': Albeit with some exceptions, many of the episode titles follow a "The X of Y" structure (The Rod of Asclepius, The Smallest of Things, The Hand of Lucia, The Owl of Minerva...), reminiscent of the original Father Brown literary stories which were released at the start of the 20th century (The Sins of Prince Saradine, The Three Tools of Death, The Mirror of The Magistrate...)
