* ''BandOfBrothers'' did this with episode to episode continuity. The last two episodes go from finding a Nazi concentration camp to them going into Hitler's summer home and hilariously looting it of everything of value (up to and including the photo album of his summer vacations).
* Common in ''PushingDaisies'', as it takes place in an extremely [[SlidingScaleOfShinyVersusGritty bright]], [[SugarBowl beautiful universe]] and has some hilarious dialogue, but all the main characters [[DysfunctionJunction have pasts that vary from the merely sad to the downright traumatic]].

* The last 10 minutes of the Season 1 finale of ''QueerAsFolk'' (US). Commitment-phobic Brian shows up at Justin's prom, where the two share an epic DanceOfRomance and even a BigDamnKiss in front of everyone. Then they're leaving to continue their romantic evening when [[spoiler: Justin gets gay-bashed with a baseball bat to the head and the season ends with Michael coming to Brian in the hospital waiting room, Brian looking utterly broken with Justin's blood staining his scarf.]] Wow.

* ''NightCourt'' did this from time to time, often going all the way around back to funny in the same scene. In "Leon, We Hadly Knew Ye" Judge Harry's foster son (and recurring character) Leon successfully runs away when he can't stand his nice, but prudish new adoptive parents. He's not seen again for the rest of the season. "The Hurricane: part 2" goes all the way back around to funny again. After helping deliver the babies of four couples during a thunderstorm and blackouts Harry slips away to have a deep and emotional talk with God in front of a cross someone left in the courtroom.

** The ending. There was originally going to be another season, then it was announced that some of the main cast wouldn't be returning, and then it was announced just a few weeks before the end of the season that the show would be cancelled, and the season finale became the series finale. The result is perhaps the most jarring case of Mood whiplash ever: [[spoiler:it cuts from the intended {{Cliffhanger}} of Castle and Beckett lying bleeding on the floor to a cheerful FlashForward of them alive and happy with kids.]]

* ''Series/HawaiiFive0:'' The episode "Ina Paha" alternates between Wo Fat's brutal and ColdBloodedTorture of [=McGarrett=]--using [[PsychoSerum mind-altering drugs]], [[ElectricTorture electrodes]], and good old fashioned [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique physical brutality]]--and [=McGarrett=]'s drug-induced [[FeverDreamEpisode hallucinations]] of a LighterAndSofter alternate universe version of the pilot episode where Victor Hess is stopped from killing John [=McGarrett=] at the last second, Chin Ho is still on the force, Danny is a happily-married CowboyCop who loves living in Hawaii, [[LargeAndInCharge Kamekona]] is an imprisoned crime lord, and [[MsFanservice Kono is a four-time world surfing champion doing TV commercials for lip gloss]].

* ''Series/{{Vinyl}}'' has this in spades. Episodes wear between broad slapstick humor, CringeComedy, BlackComedy, kitchen sink domestic marital strife, tragedy and outright violence. One never knows when things will go out of hand especially when cocaine and rock music is involved.

* The later seasons of ''BoyMeetsWorld'' had a lot of this because during those seasons [[CerebusSyndrome the show had a lot more serious plotlines]] while continuing to be a sitcom, so in the more serious episodes comedy relief scenes were injected between the serious scenes. A lot of the episode had a TwoLinesNoWaiting setup where one plot was comedic and one was serious.
