* In ''{{PS238}},'' [[MuggleBornOfMages Tyler]] travels to a castle outside of normal space and time. One hall is made up of mirrors, each of which shows him in a different superhero outfit. These turn out to be the Tylers of {{Alternate Universe}}s, and touching the mirrors allows him to see inside their minds and know what they're currently experiencing.

* In an episode of ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'', Brenda Walsh find the diary of a girl that habited the same house at the end of TheSixties, hidden in her room. Then she imagines everything the diary narrates with her friends, family and acquaintances as the characters of the history. At the end Brenda locates and meet the owner of the diary, who shows her the pictures of the people mentioned in those texts, who are obviously very differently from how Brenda had imagined them.

* Happens practically OnceAnEpisode on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''; JD's daydreams put his coworkers into a number of absurd situations (and costumes.) This includes characters from ''{{Grease}}'', ''Theatre/WestSideStory'', and ''StarWars'', as well as occasional scenes that {{parody}} a traditional DomCom.

** When this was first done, it was explained that the previous incarnations looked different but the Halliwells "recognized" their spirits and thus saw them as their current selves. Later episodes sometimes overlooked this. * ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' featured an episode where Kimberly traveled back in time to the Wild West, where all of the inhabitants resemble citizens of present-day Angel Grove, including people who look like the Power Rangers (except for Kimberly's ancestor, who makes a brief cameo after the present-day Kimberly returned to her time), Bulk and Skull (who try to find out the identity of the Rangers), and even The White Stranger. (Three guesses who that is suppose to resemble. Hint: It's the White Ranger.)

* Both ''Series/{{Roswell}}'' and ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' have played out forbidden romantic pairings (etc.) by re-telling them in an historical context. * ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''XenaWarriorPrincess'' had a few episodes that used a variant of this, except it was a FlashForward. The cast members played writers, producers, or various other modern-day characters who worked on the production of the show.

* The series finale of ''WalkerTexasRanger'' includes two parallel stories, one taking place in the present and one taking place in the Old West. They feature the same dozen or so actors playing similar (though not quite identical) characters. * Done fairly often on ''NorthernExposure''. One episode featured an old man telling Joel the story of Cicely's founding in 1909. Rob Morrow/Joel Fleischman played Creator/FranzKafka(!) while the other regulars appear as counterpart characters, often with very similar names (Maggie O'Connell, for example, becomes Mary O'Keefe). * In the ''{{Moonlighting}}'' episode "The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice", Maddie and David hear about an unsolved murder from the 1940s, and then each dream about it that night, putting themselves into the key roles. * The ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' episode "The Gang Cracks the Libery Bell" is told in the setting of 1776, with all the characters being their normally horrible, wrong selves (with Cricket as an English colonel), occasionally making attempts to speak in the vernacular of the day, badly. At multiple points, the characters note that "it's 1776" to justify crime, and the last scene of the story makes it perfectly clear they're all just making it up. * ''Series/MacGyver'' did several dream episodes along these lines, including a pair of episodes with a period version of [=MacGyver=] in the Old West and the two-parter "Good Knight, [=MacGyver=]" in which the modern [=MacGyver=] imagined himself transported to the days of King Arthur (with Arthur "played" by [=MacGyver=]'s boss Pete). * ''PressGang'' devoted much time to the tempestuous romance of leads Lynda (Julia Sawalha) and Spike (Dexter Fletcher). One episode has a flashback to Spike's parents meeting for the first time - played by Julia Sawalha and Dexter Fletcher.

* An episode of ''LoisAndClark'' had an old security guard tell about how he was betrayed by his girlfriend and business partner, and sent up the river. Cue a flashback with Clark Kent as the young security guard, Lois as the girlfriend, and Lex Luthor as the partner she leaves him for. (This episode was also right before the season one finale, which capped off the Lex/Lois courtship).

** Also toyed with in the episode where Mulder meets his reincarnating soul mate (unfortunately, she's in a suicide cult). Well, that or she had multiple personality disorder. Under hypnosis, she recalls the details of several of their past lives, which involve several of the show's characters as previous reincarnations as well. One such scenario was described as Mulder and his soul-mate having lost their child (re: his sister) to a drunk driver (re: the Cigarette smoking man), Scully was there too, as Mulder's male best friend. * ''Series/{{Castle}}'''s NoirEpisode, "The Blue Butterfly", featured the regular cast acting out a 1940s murder in flashback.

* The 80's revival of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' did an episode starring George Wendt in which his unsuccessful inventor begins having/living visions of his alternate self in a SteamPunk-ish parallel universe. In the end [[spoiler: the two men voluntarily trade places.]]
