* An episode of ''{{Superfriends}}'' had Aquaman and a couple others trapped in the distant past. He decides to bury his communicator under the future site of the Hall of Justice and set the emergency signal. The signal isn't detected until after his and several other teams get trapped in different eras and the rest of the team has begun looking for them.

* In ''Series/QuantumLeap'', from the moment Ziggy locates where and when Sam's leaped.leaped the past and the future appear to be in sync. This becomes a problem when events in the future distrace Al while Sam is in the middle of something. However there are several episodes where Al comments that they have spent weeks looking for Sam since his last leap while Sam has only experienced a few hours.

flesh out the descrigtion
Added DiffLines:
In most TimeTravel stories, San Dimas time provides a powerful case of FridgeLogic. After all, if say, for example, AliceAndBob are supposed to have "only" two hours to stop Dr. Demonface from [[BadFuture rising to power in the past]], wouldn't they in reality have all the time in the world? If they arrive to the future too late, they can just go back to an earlier future date. Of course, to preserve the drama, [[ElephantInTheLivingRoom this is almost never brought up.]]

* Used straight ''and'' averted in ''Blackout''/''All Clear'', by Connie Willis. With historians stranded in WWII England, some are worried about meeting up with recovery teams at the right place at the right time, while others remember (sometimes belatedly) that ''time travel exists'': even if ''they're'' stranded it doesn't mean that the team back home can't take all the time they need to locate the best opportunity to retrieve them. So ... um ... where are they, then?

* Early SilverAge ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'' stories are full of such moments, with characters crossing back and forth between the 20th and 30th centuries as if they were just on the other side of town. "Oh no! We're too late!"

** Doc invokes it on himself in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII''. To determine where Marty Junior, Griff, and the weather will be at any given time, Doc's watch is visibly synced to October 21, 2015 time, explaining his rush to get Marty and Jennifer into the [=DeLorean=] at the beginning of the movie. The absurdity of this is never brought up.

** In the Legion's tie-in story to FinalCrisis, [[spoiler: Superboy burns a line across Superboy-Prime's chest, and the same mark appears on the chest of Prime's future counterpart, Time Trapper.]] * The DCU's ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' had a wall of anti-matter that moved through the Multiverse slowly destroying all time periods. The future was destroyed first, and the wall encroached backwards through time. Hence the Legion of Super-Heroes (who live in the 30th century) being decimated in an early issue, as well as (more famously) the Flash, Barry Allen, who had made his home in the future. As to ''why'' this destructive force went backwards; [[FridgeBrilliance If it moved forward, nothing after it could stop it.]] It would cease to exist and you'd have no story.
