** Re-imagined ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' is original ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' [-TAKEN SERIOUSLY-]!
*** Hardly "seriously" when you have Cylon fetish-dungeon ships, and crank the {{Fanservice}} UpToEleven. More like a DarkerAndEdgier version.
*** With the revival of serial-formatted TV such as ''24'' and others, rather than episodic tales, the Re-imagined Series and J.J. Abrams's ''Lost'' were can't-miss-an-episode shows at the time. The subject matter and MindScrew plots between these two shows were too similar for some fans, jesting that the new BSG was [[IncrediblyLamePun "LOST:]] [-IN SPACE-]!"



** Of course, between 1970-1973 the show was noticable for being ''Doctor Who'' [-NOT IN SPACE-]!
** In one ''[[Series.DeadRingers Dead Ringers]]'' sketch, the Tenth Doctor is referred to as "Jarvis Cocker [-IN SPACE-]!"



** The Second Doctor is often described as Charlie Chaplin [-IN SPACE-]!
** The Tenth Doctor [[PlayingWithATrope plays with this trope]] in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E1SmithAndJones "Smith and Jones"]]:
--->'''The Doctor:''' Have you seen?! There are these things, these great big space Rhino things, I mean, Rhinos from space, and we're on the moon! Big space Rhinos, with guns! [-ON THE MOON-]!
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E2DinosaursOnASpaceship The Eleventh is hardly above this:]]
--->'''The Doctor:''' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Dinosaurs! ON A SPACESHIP!]]
** The Eleventh Doctor story [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E11TheLodger "The Lodger"]] is lampshaded as ''Series/DoctorWho'' [-ON EARTH-].
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoTVMTheTVMovie The Fox TV movie]] is ''Series/DoctorWho'' [-IN AMERICA-]!
** Alright, let's get this over with... The TARDIS is [[IncrediblyLamePun Time And Relative Dimensions ]][-[[IncrediblyLamePun IN SPACE]]-]!
** In-show examples; In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E13TheBigBang "The Big Bang"]] (not really spoilers since they don't involve the main plot), we learn that the Doctor had previously taken Amy to "Miami [-IN SPACE-]"(with "automated sand"). At the very end of the episode, the Doctor is informed of an "[[NoodleIncident Egyptian Goddess on the Orient Express--]][-[[NoodleIncident IN SPACE]]-]".



** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber The Mind Robber]] goes beyond this trope, featuring such characters as Gulliver, Rupanzel, Cyrano and D'Artagnian [-IN A PARALLEL REALITY OUTSIDE OF TIME AND SPACE-]!
** There was a subcategory of story titles that liked to emphasise this:
*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E7TheWheelInSpace The Wheel]] [-IN SPACE-]!
*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS8E4ColonyInSpace Colony]] [-IN SPACE-]!
*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E3FrontierInSpace Frontier]] [-IN SPACE-]!
*** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E2TheArkInSpace The Ark]] [-IN SPACE-]! (This last one is rather odd recycling, considering that [[Recap/DoctorWhoS3E6TheArk The Ark]] was also [-IN SPACE-]!)



* ''Series/OnceUponATimeInWonderland'' is the least subtle out of all the examples here. It's in the title for crying out loud!



** [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS5E24TheNextPhase "The Next Phase"]] is basically ''Film/{{Ghost}}'' [-IN SPACE, MINUS THE ACTUAL DEATH OF THE HEROES-]! Too bad Creator/WhoopiGoldberg [[CastingGag wasn't there that week...]]
** [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS4E24TheMindsEye "The Mind's Eye"]] is ''Literature/TheManchurianCandidate'' [-IN SPACE-]!
** [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS3E14AMatterOfPerspective "A Matter of Perspective"]] is ''Film/{{Rashomon}}'' [-IN SPACE-]!

* As Lampshaded in a Voltaire filk, ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' was ''Series/LostInSpace'' [[strike:[-IN SPACE-]!]] [-IN THE ''Franchise/{{STAR TREK}}'' UNIVERSE-]!



* In 1993, thanks to the popularity of ''Series/SavedByTheBell'', NBC replaced its Saturday Morning lineup with TNBC, a lineup composed completely of shows that were ''Saved by the Bell'' [-[[FollowTheLeader IN SPACE]]-]!
** ''Series/CaliforniaDreams'': [-AS A ROCK BAND!-]
** ''Series/HangTime'': [-AS A BASKETBALL TEAM!-]
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_Guys City Guys]]: [-IN THE INNER CITY!-]

** The Romulans in this episode were TheRomanEmpire [-IN SPACE-]!, as exemplified by Mark Lenard's dignified Centurion character. They didn't stay that way, though. Compare the Romulans in the ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot movie.
