** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E10InTheForestOfTheNight In the Forest of the Night]]", broadcast in 2014, included dialogue specifically dating it as taking place in 2016. As a result, all modern day Earth episodes that followed took place at least two years after their broadcast date. This, however, led to a ContinuitySnarl in the spinoff series ''Series/Class2016'', which is set in the year 2016, after the the [[spoiler: death]] of companion Clara Oswald, which based on the dating established by the 2014 episode did not occur until at least 2017, if not later.

** All episodes set in the present day from 2005's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E4AliensOfLondon "Aliens of London"]] to 2008's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd "Journey's End"]], inclusive, take place a year after the airing date. [[note]]2007's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E10Blink "Blink"]] is a tiny exception to the rule, because the Doctor's only present-day appearance in that episode was after a one-year TimeSkip from a linear, subjective viewpoint. This means that "Blink" ''started'' in the year it aired but ''finished'' at the normal one-year-ahead point.[[/note]]

Thanks to the series taking a "gap year" in which only a handful of specials were aired, the series was able to align with present-day by the time the Tenth Doctor handed off to the Eleventh Doctor.

* ''Film/DaphneAndVelma'' a prequel to the Franchise/ScoobyDoo franchise, was released in 2018 and is supposedly set in the present day, however it features technology such as holographic personal computer screens and edible food-producing 3D printers that is in advance of real-world 2018 technology.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' series started off presumably taking place in the "present day" relative to publication and [[WebcomicTime eventually drifted]] into the recent past, such that the final book's FlashForward to a few years later takes place in 2002, just one year after the book's publication date of May 2001. It actually describes the world of 2002 far better than it has any right to, noting that the reveal that aliens exist [[UsefulNotes/TheWarOnTerror has led to an increase in terrorism, especially religiously motivated terrorism.]]
** Earlier in the series, however, a BadFuture episode has the World Trade Center as the only piece of the New York City skyline still standing.

* ''Anime/YokaiWatchShadowside'' takes place 30 years after the original ''Anime/YokaiWatch'' anime (which ended in 2017). Not much is different in the 2040s.

* The old Extraterrorestrial Alien Encounter attraction at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Walt Disney World]] was set in a future where unscrupulous MegaCorp organizations span across entire solar systems. It was slightly tongue in cheek, but a large departure from the tone of everything else in the park.

* Most entries of the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' are set in this period, with things like colonization of the Moon or Mars being mentioned often, spaceflight being done regularly by pilots, and ray guns being the weapon of choice against the MonsterOfTheWeek, while everything else looks as it was in the years the show was produced in.
