* Later episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' have been using this trope heavily, featuring subcultures and lifestyles that have gained prominence in the few years leading up to the episode, in an attempt to [[WereStillRelevantDammit keep the show relevant]].

Added DiffLines:

** In "Reborn Again to be Wild", Bobby joins a youth group that consists of a [[TheMoralSubstitute Christian]] [[GangOfHats skater punk gang]] with a radical young priest as a leader. The group suddenly becomes big in their area and Bobby starts listening to Christian Rock and is even seen playing a Bible video game, but Hank quickly comes to detest the group because he dislikes the idea of Christianity being treated so irreverently and is (quite understandably) afraid that Bobby will eventually come to see religion as yet another fad that he will just drop when be becomes bored of it. Memorably skewered by Hank telling the priest:
--> "You aren't making Christianity better -- you're only making rock 'n' and roll ''worse!''"

* One of the defining examples was "Next Stop, Nowhere," a.k.a, "the punk rock episode of ''Series/{{Quincy}}''." In the '80s HardcorePunk subculture, the episode spawned the slur "[[TheQuincyPunk Quincy punk]]," applied to scene members and bands who personified the old Music/SexPistols stereotype of the sloppy, antisocial, mohawked/spiky-haired punk rocker. This was at a time when hardcore was about dressing normal, playing tight, and maintaining a positive or at least thoughtful attitude.

** Yet another episode involved the owners of [[TheDollEpisode adult dolls]] (although it turned out that the doll ownership was irrelevant to the murder). Basically, ''CSI: NY'', like all of the shows in the CSIVerse, is pretty much in love with this trope.

** The infamous episode "Fur and Loathing", set at a furry convention began it all. The portrayal of furries caused considerable controversy in that fandom. The episode was even a {{Jump The Shark}} moment for some, who saw it as the start of a freak-a-week format.

** On one time the team investigates a murder on a gaming convention, and while there's some disparaging about people who play video games for a living, they still consider the motive (the multi-thousand-dollar grand prize of a gaming tournament and a hacked consoles that allowed cheating) pretty seriously.

** A murder-at-the-''Star''-''Trek''-convention storyline, albeit with the [[CaptainErsatz serial numbers filed off]]. Trekkies, Trekkies everywhere...

Trekkies, Trekkies everywhere... and a bit of deconstruction about how even if "DarkerAndEdgier" is supposed to be the 'hot new thing' with creating remakes, not a lot of people are willing to accept it, or can write it well (and yes, this ''was'' an important part of the murderer's motive, although it was mostly [[spoiler:the fact that her work [[PlagiarismInFiction was plagiarized]], and it still was an AccidentalMurder.]])

** "The Panty Sniffer". You can guess what fetish '''that''' episode was built around (and Nick was equally embarrassed to be in the same room as the man who led him into figuring it out).
