* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's opinion of ''Film/SpiceWorld'': "Does it have a plot? No! But it does have at least four subplots, each one more painfully useless than the last." She noted a similar pattern in ''TheBabysittersClub'' movie.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' in Volume 4. Due to the events of Volume 3, the titular team has been separated and the show is dealing with the four in different plots - Ruby and the remains of Team JNPR trying to find Cinder to get back at her for the destruction of Vale, Weiss being stuck in her home in Atlas with her abusive father, Blake running away with Sun Wukong joining her, and Yang and her father Taiyang and trying to get the former to get out of her depression.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/DearWhitePeople'': The first 5 or so episodes concern the blackface party and the different reactions of the various characters, but eventually the show moves on to other topics while retaining each episode's focus on one character.

* This is how the show ''Series/TheWire'' works. Usually, storylines will be hinted at in an episode at the beginning of the season and won't start to bear fruit until near the end. Sometimes they're hinted at in one season and start to pick up in another season. This is done surprisingly well and never really feels disorienting because you need to pay very close attention anyway to enjoy the show. The trope also grew progressively more emphatic as the series went on. If you read episode summaries on TheOtherWiki, the fourth-season summaries, for instance, are about five times longer than the first-season summaries.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/AllHailKingJulien: Exiled'' takes the shift from the previous seasons' episodic comedy to serialized dramedy and goes all in, featuring 13 episodes following King Julien, Clover and Mort all making their own efforts to free the kingdom from Koto, giving equal time to each group in each episode up until the end when they all converge.

* The ''WhateleyUniverse'' is such a LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 'verse that there are something like two dozen main characters and shedloads of side characters. Even with a new story (or chapter) coming out weekly right now, we can go months and months without seeing a new scene about our favorite character.

* ''Literature/WheelOfTime.'' It started out juggling the threads well enough, but as the series went on, the unbelievably large amount of characters bogged it down to a snail's pace. Add in the SeasonalRot with Robert Jordan's growing focus on political maneuvering and CostumePorn, and it's a wonder when things happen. Book 10 deserves a special mention for being largely the reactions of every cast group to a single event. Book 10 is over 700 pages long... and the event in question occured in ''the previous book'', where it was the main plot of that novel so already dealt with in some detail. There's a reason fans hate it.

** Season 6 eliminated even more with massive amounts of character death (even for a show known for AnyoneCanDie) and building alliances, setting up Season 7 to return to the familiar "King's Landing - the North/Wall - Daenerys" structure of the first season.
