** That said, old dynamite will "sweat" the nitroglycerine and it can pool in the bottom of the container, or crystalize on the outside of the clay.

* In ''SpaceQuest IV'', if you take the unstable ordnance from the tank, it explodes and kills you when you go into the sewer.
** ''SpaceQuest III'' features a [[StarWars thermal detonator]] you had to use to disable a shield generator on an unstable volcanic planet. Trying to take one with you back to your ship via across an unstable piece of land or pole-vaulting over the resulting rift results in scattering yourself in a five meter radius.

* Picric acid becomes a highly shock-sensitive explosive similar to nitroglycerin when dried out, and thus old jars of the stuff, occasionally seen in back rooms of school chem labs, must be handled and disposed of by the bomb squad.

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Copper}}'' Robert Morehouse assists a Confederate agent in transporting a wagon full of Greek Fire. It is a liquid that bursts into flames when exposed to air and cannot be extinguished with water. Should one of the barrels leak, the entire wagon could explode. The situation is not helped by the fact that [[spoiler: Robert is working against the Confederates and is trying to sabotage their plans by making sure that the Greek Fire never reaches New York]].

* The first episode of ''Series/GeminiMan'' centers on TheHero [[LiveActionEscortMission protecting an inventor and his super fuel additive]] from the minions of the "international oil cartel". However, the inventor has already sold out to the oil companies and plans on FakingTheDead using the additive's explosive properties (a large beakerful supposedly being enough to take out a small town). As [[MST3K Mike and the Bots]] [[LampshadeHanging point out]], the actual explosion wouldn't destroy a town ("Maybe singe a bed-and-breakfast", Crow remarks).

* ''WildWestCOWBoysOfMooMesa'' had an episode featuring this.
* ''JanaOfTheJungle'' had an oil well fire episode. The bits that weren't out of ''Film/TheWagesOfFear'', were out of ''Film/RoosterCogburn'' (with modifications, this is a kid's show, so no one gets so much as a nasty boo-boo).

* ''{{Chowder}}'': In "The Blast Raz", the gang have to deliver a crate of highly explosive and unstable blast raz fruit. Their route takes them over a pothole-filled road, across a storm-tossed lake and up the side of an active volcano.
