* In the ''ILoveLucy'' episode "Lucy Gets A Paris Gown", Lucy wants to get a new designer dress while in France. Ricky reads a letter Lucy wrote in Hollywood, promising Ricky if he'd buy her a Hollywood designer dress, she would NEVER ask for another designer dress. The note is dated 2/28/55 -- The broadcast date of the episode "The Fashion Show" in which Lucy gets said dress. Extra coolness points awarded when you realize the writers had no idea what a rerun was at this point...let alone that anyone in the future would create episode guides, listing airdates.

* ''{{Skins}}'' has constantly proven a nightmare to track the dating for; each series typically airs from January to March, but covers the academic year from September to July/August. Katie's episode in Series 4 provides a clue, though; the bailiffs read out a court order dated Febuary 17th 2010, the day before the episode's airdate (night passed during the episode, so it adds up), indicating that ''Skins'' airs in a stretched-out present with time skips.
