Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Film/Life}}'': Forty years into his life sentence (which began in [[TheGreatDepression 1932]] [[DeepSouth Mississippi]]), Claude is accidentally released in a parking lot where he finds himself surrounded by [[TheSeventies black youths sporting afros and listening to funky music]]. Coupled with seeing the reflection of his old self, he is so shocked that he decides to wait for the warden in the car instead of attempting to escape.


Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Series/Primeval}}'': The [[KnightInShiningArmor Medieval knight Sir William de Moray]] wasn't exactly off to a good start when he travelled to the future, given that he thought the time warp was a gateway to Hell, but the future did little to cause a good impression by happening to have a Carnival parade in that very same day and placing a gang of [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels Satanic bikers]] almost immediately in Sir William's path.
* In ''Series/ElMinisterioDelTiempo'', one of the first things Abraham Levi and his wife see when they leave 1491 is a female agent dressed in the most-exaggerated [[TheSixties sixties]] fashion imaginable.

John Smith is a goodhearted farm boy from sometime in the past - but not earlier than the 13th century [[EternalEnglish (as modern English would be near-totally incomprehensible to a speaker of that time or earlier.)]] But then he foolishly plays with the mystic Nazi time portal or there's a temporal equivalent of the TeleporterAccident, and ZAP!, he falls, screaming, into the PresentDay (whenever that happens to be).

* In ''TabletopGame/D20Modern Urban Arcana'', elves, dwarves, halflins, and so on arrive in the modern world straight from the MedievalEuropeanFantasy setting that is ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. almost no one in this new land knows anything about the magic they brought up with them, but then again they don't know about modern tech either. At least, until they learn.

Inevitably, within minutes of arriving in the bright, blinky, flishy-flashing future, he will be culture-shocked from his head to his toes. To drive home how much of a FishOutOfTemporalWater he is, the filmmakers will slap him in the face repeatedly with the seamiest parts of contemporary culture, whether or not it's even remotely realistic in context.

* Inverted in ''{{Film/Maxie}}'', in which a 1920s flapper possesses the body of a woman from the present day, i.e. 1985. The flapper finds the life of a 1980s housewife too sexually repressed for her taste.
