* Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles has this for part of the pilot, since it starts in 1999 before time jumping them to 2007 (the year the show premiered). It allows for some real world events to surprise them, like 9/11.

** Rowling continues the trend with her later books. ''Literature/TheCasualVacancy'' was written in 2012 but never gives a precise date, though certain pop culture references put it late in the aughts. 2013's ''Literature/TheCuckoosCalling'''s use of ChekhovsNews specifically places it during certain landmark events of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_general_election,_2010#Campaign the 2010 UK general election]].

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' was first released in the early 2000s however takes place in 1983. It's unlikely the series would work if the characters had modern day conveniences such as internet access or easily accessible cellphones. In fact at the start of the second season of the AnimatedAdaptation we see a now adult Rena in 2006 [[spoiler:who is now quite melancholy as she was literally the SoleSurvivor of her ''entire town'' after an incident in 1983.]]
