* ''Series/TheITCrowd'' has the seldom seen character Richmond. When he's introduced he has the job, that even he doesn't know what it is, of sitting alone in the company's server tower room. The episode goes on to reveal that he used to be a corporate exec and Denholm's right hand name, until he turned into a goth - looking like a member of Kiss in board meetings and mortifying Denholm at his father's funeral. "Antarctica" being the basement with the IT nerds.
** In the series finale Douglas reassigns himself to the "IT Antarctica" to hide from various legal troubles. Handing off the reigns of the company to the IT Team.

** One example which is not played for laughs is Hacker's fear of being sent to [[StrokeCountry Northern Ireland]]. The series is set when UsefulNotes/TheTroubles were in full swing, and being a senior British government official in Northern Ireland carried with it a significant risk of being the victim of terrorist attacks and assassination attempts.

** After Jimmy [=McNulty=] steps on too many toes, his boss asks him what detail he does ''not'' want to get transferred to. His attempt at ReversePsychology is seen through effortlessly, and he's stuck where he least wants to be -- on a boat, on harbour detail.

** After At the end of the first season, after Jimmy [=McNulty=] steps on too many toes, his boss asks him what detail he does ''not'' want to get transferred to. His attempt at ReversePsychology is seen through effortlessly, and he's stuck Jimmy attempts some ReversePsychology, but unfortunately for him, way back in the first episode of the season he told his sergeant how much he hated the thought of riding a boat in the city's marine unit. Guess where he least wants Jimmy is by the end of the episode. Unfortunately for his bosses, [[ReassignmentBackfire Jimmy finds a way to be -- on a boat, on harbour detail.stick it to them]] in the second season.

* On ''Series/GameOfThrones'', The Wall, a giant wall of ice, is defended by a sworn brotherhood called the Night’s Watch and it is described by show runner David Benioff as ''“a cross between an ancient monastic order and a special forces brigade.”'' It was once considered a noble calling by all but now most realms in Westeros believe the Wall is guarding against an imaginary threat long gone ([[GreaterScopeVillain the Others]]) and don't believe this [[SealedEvilInACan army-of-the-dead-threat]] have arisen again. While the Night's Watch is still considered a noble and honorable calling/tradition by those in the North and there are those, like second sons or highborn bastards from Northern noble houses (like the Starks), that voluntarily join for the sake of honor and duty, even many in the North -- save for a few that have either seen or felt it -- don't believe this ancient threat has arisen again. Nowadays, the Night's Watch has fallen into disrepair due to diminishing resources and lack of support from the southern kingdoms and the Wall has also become a place to deal with criminals, misfits, and disgraced ex-knights in a non-fatal but permanent way.
** Being remotely reassigned is even possible within the Order of the Wall. Lord Commander Jon Snow tries to send troublemaker Janos Slynt to Greyguard, a remote fortress far from their home base. Janos refuses to accept such a "demeaning" assignment multiple times. This was not the smartest move he could make.
** Janos' assignment is actually a subversion. He was being tasked with the important job of restoring one of the Watch's many derelict forts to fighting condition, even after he fled a battle and would have ideally been be headed for desertion.

** And [=McKay=], who later became Atlantis' chief science officer, appeared on ''SG-1'' and was reassigned to Siberia to work on a Naquadah generator they were developing for failing at empathy and tact (and thinking he was better than Sam Carter). He's gotten better (comparatively) at those things since he got to Atlantis.
