This is any episode of a show that focuses around a big disaster. Frequently used as a season opener (or finale), this will usually involve the creation of a spectacular crash scene and may well get covered in ''RadioTimes'' or another such publication.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "April 9th," acted as the series response to the September 11th [[WarOnTerror terrorist]] [[PostNineElevenTerrorismMovie attacks.]] It tells of Lakewood Elementary catching fire during one day and how all the different people involved are affected by it. The story is spread across the entire episode unlike the usual two 11-minute episodes that most of the rest of the series has. It was also substantially [[DarkerAndEdgier much more serious and somber]] than the series normally is, showing the very real symptoms of PTSD that can occur such as Arthur constantly stressing over his father, who was trapped in the building longer than everyone else (a family-friendly surrogate of the people who died in the 9/11 attacks), Sue Ellen suffering over losing her diary that she'd kept for years (symbolizing the memories that were destroyed when the attacks occurred), Mr. Morris suffering injuries that cause him to retire, and Binky being so traumatized by it that he pulls the fire alarm for no reason as an outlet for his fear.

* ''{{CSI}}'' had a bus crash version, which was caused by shoddy materials. It was Greg's first time in the field, too.
* ''ColdCase'': An arson fire set in a disco to cover up a murder ended up killing almost a dozen more.
