* ''Series/{{Danger 5}}'' brings more of a '60s flavour to this, pastiching the silly men's adventure magazines of the decade. Despite its very '60s aesthetic, however, it's set during WorldWarTwo and features a very silly Hitler as its BigBad.

Then, people started looking back on the pulp era nostalgically, and when they did, they usually locked onto the over-the-top stories of heroes like ''Radio/TheShadow'', ''Franchise/DocSavage'', and ''ComicStrip/ThePhantom''. Many point to ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' and the sequel ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' movies, which took 1930s pulp adventures as an inspiration, as the keystone of the pulp resurgence, but whatever kicked it off, pulp has recaptured the heart of many a geek.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has this as one of its stock GenreRoulette settings, especially during the Classic series. Many of the Creator/WilliamHartnell-era stories harken back to boy's adventure stories of the 30s and 40s, from "The Daleks" (which has a heavy ''ComicStrip/DanDare'' vibe) to "The Smugglers" (pirates and {{Swashbuckling}}). Season 13 and 14 (the "GothicHorror" period) are a particularly good period to find them in - there's a RaygunGothic detective story, a Franchise/FuManchu {{Expy}}, and a WhoShotJFK conspiracy thriller; a DarkerAndEdgier, BloodierAndGorier, slightly HotterAndSexier and more 'pastiche-y' tone; and the introduction of a sexy jungle-girl companion inspired by 1900s pulp. Some show up earlier and later than this - bizarrely, "City of Death" was intended to be one, but then someone got the bright idea of asking Creator/DouglasAdams to write it.
