** It gets better. Several {{novelization}}s of episodes were released. They featured more of the original literature's text, but still integrated Wishbone as a dog into the story. For example, in ''Literature/ATaleOfTwoCities'', as Darnay (played by Wishbone) gets out of his coach, he muses that he needs a private moment with a tree; and it is noted that he can only trot at his (human!) wife's ankle height when they walk together.

*** In that same episode, Olivia tries to get the point across to a teenage girl that her pregnancy was a bad idea by saying, "A baby is not an accessory. It is not a bracelet or a pair of earrings or a slammin' pair of jeans."

*** That one seems deliberate.

* Creator/{{NBC}} miniseries, "Impact" was Narmish to anyone who knows astrophysics, from the bright and low-flying meteor shower on. The geography can get funny, too -- astronomers in Arizona and astronomers in Berlin (what's left of it) can observe everything going on at the same time!
** The [[ArtisticLicensePhysics electromagnetic field radiated by the star "fragment"]] causes things to start FLOATING. Highlights are a guy and his kid grabbing onto a swing set to avoid falling up, and a train being ''launched off the rails into the air'' in a scene strangely reminiscent of ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue''.
** No, not the electromagnetic field. They said "gravity fluctuations," which is even MORE ridiculous (gravity is constant to the amount of mass. Gravity can't fluctuate without [[IncrediblyLamePun massive]] changes in that)! Also, the scene with the ship being sucked off of the water, but the water not moving at all was pretty narmy.

** During Duets: When Artie is calling Brittany out on her using him for his voice and for not realising how important losing his virginity was for him, he leaves her in the hallway and wheels away... at which point it can be seen his back wheels had ''flashing rainbow lights.'' It completely ruined the scene, since they most definitely weren't there before this scene. Also, the awkward moment when Brittany had to lift him out of his chair and carry him bridal-style to the bed so they could have sex. I know it was necessary, but she looked just a little bit silly.

* ''Series/CriminalMinds''

* ''Series/CriminalMinds''''Series/CriminalMinds'':



* In ''Series/{{Dexter}}'', anything to do with Dexter's fear that his son is a burgeoning serial killer. Reason being, ''he's one''! He just took his first steps. Oh no, a child was scratched and it's possible that he did it. Clearly that was due to his ''lust for '''pain''''' rather than him not having proper motor skills yet. If that kid's out for blood at his age he needs to team up with [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Stewie Griffin]].
** This seems to be just a result of Dexter overreacting, rather than anything that seemed a legitimate concern. Dexter doesn't really know what normal behavior is and he was already anxious about the kid turning out like him, so it's not too surprising that he might misinterpret his son's behavior, and it's played for comedy. That said, it was a little cheesy.

* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' tends to have its narm moments during the villain's reveal. One villain was a man with a split personality. [[spoiler:The other personality was a very feminine woman. It was probably meant to be scary, but - a grown man walking and talking like a southern belle?]]
** Hey, it can happen...
** "Soul Mates" featured a pair of sexual predators with a thing for teenaged girls discussing how they liked their hamburger meat "fresh" and "rare" in a flashback. It started off creepy and ended up hilarious, doubly so because the first phrase uttered after the flashback was "You think that's funny?".
*** From the same episode, Morgan drags the one of the pair they have in custody into a couple verbal scuffles while trying to interrogate him. A couple of his remarks (case in point, Morgan presses him on the implications that the two are romantically attached to each other, the unsub says Morgan has no idea what he's talking about, and Morgan's deadpan response is "You're right - I have absolutely no idea what it's like to be in love with another man") can come off as either [[UnfortunateImplications low blows, under the circumstances,]] or just exchanges that wouldn't be out of place in a... less serious series.

*** Spike singing "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood" would have been '''even creepier.'''

*** There is an explanation, and it was supposed to come out of nowhere. But it's still not very sensible of him.

** What about the last episode of Series 1? You know, where a giant demon from the seventh circle of hell appeared in the last ten minutes for no adequately explained reason?
** In the episode "Meat," the narmy line "What have they done to you my dear friend?" is uttered. Creator/JohnBarrowman's delivery of the line just makes things worse.
*** And from the same episode: "Give Rhys all my love and I'll see you tomorrow," delivered as a low, angry hiss. Jack seems to be a magnet for these lines
