Yeah, there happens to be this other RealLife religion with a similar name but they've got all this extra junk about the true [[ArchangelMichael nature of Christ]], the method of Salvation, organisational structure and all those other things that you can't fit into a 42 minute hour. Now those guys believe that only 144,000 will go to heaven, yes, but that's not what most of them are aiming for: other good people will rebuild earth into [[{{Arcadia}} a paradise]]. They do indeed believe that blood is sacred and thus they reject blood tranfusions. However, the real life ones have committees trained to point out the alternatives to blood transfusion, even having had heart surgery performed without transfusions without lowering survival rates - but that wouldn't make for such an interesting moral dilemma in MedicalDrama. Despite the evangelical side, they are politically neutral.

neutral (i.e. not voting, joining the army, working in government jobs, and generally not acknowledging the existence of the nation-state).

* On the first episode of ''Series/MockTheWeek'''s seventh season, the cast commented on Music/MichaelJackson's death [[CrossesTheLineTwice in their usual style]]. They noted that being a Jehovah's Witness was possibly the least weird thing about Jackson and pondered whether, when he went to meetings, ''they'' pretended to be out and that he did look like someone who wouldn't have a blood transfusion. [[note]](This also completely ignores that Jackson disassociated himself from the Witnesses in 1987.)[[/note]]

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/LieToMe'', the family of a Jehovah's Witness kid accused of murder use religious idoms that are seldom expressed in the JW world except in parody or sarcasm, such as "praying for your soul." Also, the JW child is afraid of being sent to Hell. Major research failure: Jehovah's Witnesses [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annihilationism#Jehovah.27s_Witnesses don't believe in Hell]].

** In another episode of The Simpsons, Marge emotes her desperation for human interaction by saying "The other day two Jehovah's Witnesses came to the house. I wouldn't let them leave. They snuck out when I went to make lemonade.".

** Painfully played straight on the third season Christmas episode of ''Series/{{Community}}''. Given that it's Christmas - the only time Troy's religion is ever mentioned - the issue of celebration is raised. Despite his supposed beliefs, all it takes for Troy essentially turn away from his faith is for Abed to suggest that he could pretend to celebrate for the purpose of destroying Christmas from the inside. Cue Troy in Christmas sweater, singing carols etc.
