* No big-time heroics are shown in ''Series/TheTick'', with most episodes taking place between their crime fighting. Whenever the team is about to do something heroic they just cut to the aftermath.

** A lampshaded example: Ted refuses to tell his kids Victoria's most embarrassing story, which involves NoodleImplements. After the story is told offscreen, Marshall and Lily react with "That was the greatest story ever."

** In an early episode of the third season, Tyrion rewards Podric for his loyalty by arranging for him to meet with three beautiful whores and paying for it. To Tyrion's shock, Podric's performance was apparently so good that the whores refused to take his payment and gave him the time for free. Tyrion and Bronn immediately sit Podric down to start pressing him for "details"; these details are never revealed to the audience.

* Has happened more than once in ''HomeAndAway''. Like the story that introduced Peter, where Leah was held hostage and Dan was trying to rescue her...but by the time we came back from commercial, Peter had beaten him to the punch. It's possible that this was done so as to keep the timeslot, but still, pretty damn irritating.

*** In "Baelor," two major battles occur, but only the aftermaths are shown. First Tyrion gets knocked unconscious by the rush of clansmen following a RousingSpeech and only wakes up after the battle, then Robb is shown returning triumphant from battle with Jaime Lannister as his prisoner.

* For budgetary reasons, the show doesn't show most of its battles, usually just the armies charging in followed by the aftermath. Awesomely averted in the penultimate episode of season 2, ''Blackwater''.

** One noticeable example is the ''Battle of the Fist of the First Men'' around season 3. Which consisted of The Nightwatch fighting a horde of wights, among them reanimated corpses of animals most notably a fucking reanimated ''[[RaisingTheSteaks BEAR!!]]''. The Nightwatch was completely crushed and demoralized. But we only get to see the survivors make a grim march back to Craster's Keep.

** The sack of Yunkai happens almost completely offscreen. Dany's three champions fight off an initial wave of guards, then report back that they've fomented a slave uprising. Later, the sack of Meereen only shows a single master getting swarmed by angry slaves in a narrow alley.
** In "No One," Brynden Tully stages a one-man last stand against Lannister soldiers, and Arya fights a Faceless Man assassin in the dark with Needle. Both fights are performed off-screen.
