* ''WesternAnimation/BlinkyBill'' does this, not so much with season 2, but seasons 1 and 3 do give you an idea of the plot which will follow in the episodes. In the first season, this also couples with a backstory of how the season kicks off.

** It's mercilessly parodied in ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' when [[{{Motormouth}} Misfire]] introduces Fulcrum to the Scavengers at rapid speed, prompting Fulcrum to mutter "that was relentless", and Krok to explain that Misfire is ''very'' high at that point.

* ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'' gets into the action with "Fancy Dress", the opening number of the eponymous [[ShowWithinAShow Play Within a Play]]. Each of the main characters introduces themselves and gives a brief explanation of what they're doing at the resort that serves as the show's setting, showing off a bit of their personality while filling in the audience on the basic premise. Fortunately, it's a relatively small cast, and the introductions are about two sentences apiece, so it doesn't overstay its welcome.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' ExpandedUniverse:
** The ''Series/DoctorWho'' Target novelisations tend to start with a quick rattling-off of the name and backstory of the companion and a physical description of the Doctor. Due to the formulaic nature of the books and the need to quickly and transparently establish which Doctor the story is about, the physical descriptions are kept almost identical (no LeftFieldDescription to speak of), leading to fandom in-jokes and quick code-phrases used to establish Doctor identity even in much more carefully-crafted bits of the ExpandedUniverse - especially the Fourth Doctor's 'all teeth and curls' and 'beaky' nose and the Fifth Doctor's 'pleasant, open face'.

** The ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' series starts off with the Seventh Doctor rattling off to Ace his identity, her identity, her real name, her background, the premise of ''Doctor Who'' itself, key locations like the TARDIS and Gallifrey, and even adds in a {{Cameo}} from the Fourth Doctor (the most iconic Doctor, easily recognised by even non-fans) in the form of a recorded message so the Doctor can explain to Ace and the reader that he and that person are the same character.

* The ''BabySittersClub'' does this in the beginning of each book, to the point where the first two chapters are completely formulaic- the first chapter will establish the main character and the plot, the second chapter will be a club meeting and will describe each character. It's easy to just skip the first two chapters and still comprehend what's going on.
