If a point in a series, it will often restart the numbering -- instead of ''Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}'' #237, it'll be ''Spider-Man volume 2'' #1. It may be just after the resolution of a massive storyline, and it'll almost always show something similar to the general status quo of the series.

** The beginning of Creator/PeterCapaldi's last season, which introduced new companion Bill, was also conceived as a jumping-on point, with very little of the season requiring a detailed memory of prior continuity.

* As [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Creator/AnnaRussell, in the opening of ''[[Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung Götterdämmerung]]'', the Fates re-tell the story of the first three operas ("Right over again ''from the beginning.'' That is,
of course, [[SarcasmMode in case you couldn't hear it the first time]]."):
--> As a matter of fact, you can miss out parts one, two, and three, and go in at the beginning of ''Götterdämmerung'' and you'll be just about as far ahead as anyone else is.

When a whole new continuity is created, it's an UltimateUniverse. Compare the plot-variant of NewFirstComics, where at least part of the snarl [[CanonDiscontinuity is rendered non-canon]].

When a whole new continuity is created, it's an UltimateUniverse. Compare ClipShow, which shows incidents from past episodes, whether meant to be instructive to new viewers or not, and the plot-variant of NewFirstComics, where at least part of the snarl [[CanonDiscontinuity is rendered non-canon]].



** The fifth season premiere, "No Compromises", saw another new station commander, Captain Elizabeth Lochley, coinciding with the show jumping networks to TNT. That said, the true JumpingOnPoint for viewers in the fifth season was the MadeForTVMovie "In The Beginning", which managed to sum up four seasons or so of the universe's BackStory ([[ClipShowEpisode while also utilizing numerous clips from previous episodes to save on production costs]]).

* The second season of ''Series/{{Babylon 5}}'' sees the introduction of Sheridan as the protagonist, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Sinclair's actor having left the show between seasons]], and is generally considered to be [[GrowingTheBeard the point where the show comes into its prime]].

** Generally speaking, any time a new actor takes the role of The Doctor can be seen as this, as the show tended to take on a slightly different style to suit each actor. Occasionally, the arrival of a new companion is also treated as this as, in the Modern Era, the companions are explicitly intended to be analogues for the audience.
** The Tenth Doctor episode "Blink" is also cited as one of these, given that the episode is mostly from the perspective of Sally Sparrow, a new character that knows nothing of what is going on. In fact, since The Doctor and Martha spend most of the episode [[WrittenInAbsence trapped in another decade]], the episode is even able to avoid any of the plot baggage either of the season's main characters would normally bring with them.
** Although never promoted as such, the Series 9 two-parter "Under the Lake" and "Before the Flood" serves as a jumping-on point as the script outlines the Doctor-companion dynamic, the concept of how time travel and paradoxes work, and even manages to explain what the deal is with the TARDIS. One can actually start watching the show at this point and pick up the basics without having to google anything.
