* The Russian mini-series ''Wolf Messing: Seeing through time'' starts the pilot with the titular character's performance in Moscow and a disturbing vision about the death of JosefStalin's son in a plane crash. He informs Stalin about this, who promises that the crash will not happen. Later, Messing finds out that the crash still happened, but Stalin's son wasn't on the flight. The HeroicBSOD flows into a flashback of how he got to this point, starting with his childhood in a Polish village.

* ''Series({{ER}}'s'' cold openers generally focus on interpersonal ties (more than the hustle and bustle of the meat of the show could, anyway). A 12th season episode, "The Gallant Hero & the Tragic Victor", actually kills off a main character in the teaser.
