* ''Series/ForThePeople'' names each episode except the Pilot after quotes said in the episode.



** The French translators of the show decided for some reason to give up the original kind of IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming and replaced it with another one : each episode is named "The One Who [insert description of the actions of one character in this episode]". For instance, "The One with Monica and Chandler's Wedding" is translated as "The One Who Married Monica" ("Celui qui a épousé Monica"). It is unknown whether they thought it was a more clever way to do things or missed the point with the first couple of episodes and then thought it was too late to change, but in either cases the titles generally end up being very clumsy, nonsensical and non-informative, making this an example of {{BlindIdiotTranslation}}.

* ''Series/{{Skins}}'': The episode titles are the first name of the main character [[ADayInTheLimelight that they focus on]]. Except the Series 1 and 3 finales, which focus, respectively, the entire cast and most of the cast, and are both titled "Finale". The Series 2 finale also focuses on the whole cast, but is titled "Everyone". Of course, this pattern causes some ambiguity, for instance, there are 4 different episodes titled "Effy".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheGoodFight'': Season two episodes are all "Day" and a number (408, 415) etc. Presumably the number of days since Diane and Maia joined the firm, but not made clear. Made even more meaningless and hard to remember by events in the episodes occurring over more than one day.

* ''[[Series/JessicaJones2015 Jessica Jones]]'': This Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse Creator/{{Netflix}} series uses "AKA" (Also Known As) at the beginning of every title, with the rest of the title [[TitleDrop being dropped in dialogue at some point in the episode]]. It's the first television entry into the MCU to use theme naming, as a remnant of when the working title for the series was "AKA Jessica Jones".

** There was actually an interview somewhere in which the writing staff explained that they "wanted to name them what people were going to be calling them anyway".

** There was actually an interview somewhere in which the writing staff explained that they "wanted to name them what people were going to be calling them anyway".anyway", which works pretty well aside from a few episodes that aren't named after the thing most viewers remembered - e.g. The One With the Embryos is mostly remembered for the contest that resulted in Joey/Chandler swapping apartments with Monica/Rachel.
