** The Fifth series finale (before the example after this) has a great example.
--->"[[IncomingHam Hellooo Stooneheeeenge!]] Who takes the Pandorica, takes the universe! But bad news everyone, 'cause [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall guess Who!]] HAH! You lot, you're all whizzing about, its very distracting. Could you all stay still for a moment, because ''' I! AM! TALKING! '''
---> *Spaceships freeze in their tracks*
--->Now the question of the hour is [[ArmorPiercingQuestion who's got the Pandorica?]] Answer: [[OhCrap I do.]] Next question: who's coming to take it from me? Come onnnnnn! Look at me, no plan, no backup, no weapons worth a damn. Oh, and something else: I don't have [[PunctuatedForEmphasis anything. To. Lose.]]
--->So!
--->If you're sitting up there in your silly little spaceships with all your silly. Little. Guns, and you've got any plans on taking the Pandorica, tonight, just remember who's standing in your way. [[LongRunner Remember every black day I ever stopped you.]] And then, AND THEN, do the smart thing. Let someone else try first.
---> [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome *Cue shot of spaceships flying away* ]]
*** [[http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Big_Bang The Fifth Series Finale]] tops even all those with [[spoiler: Daleks, Cybermen, Silurians, Judoon, Sontarans, Sycorax, Autons and more. In an alliance. To trap the Doctor. Which leads to most of time and space never having existed in the first place! Then, the universe gets better, but at the cost of the doctor never having existed at all. (Okay, he gets better too. But barely!).]]. It is very unclear how Moffat can possibly top that next year, though he will probably try. And succeed, of course.

*** As an accompaniment to the aforementioned Fifth Series Finale, one particular exchange stands out:
--->'''Dalek''': "You will be EX-TERM-INATED!"
--->'''[[spoiler: River Song]]''': "Not yet. Your systems are still restoring, which means your shield density is compromised. '' [[DramaticGunCock Draws Pistol and adjusts it.]] '' One alpha meson burst through your eye stalk would kill you stone dead.
--->'''Dalek''': ''(stops moving)'' "Records indicate you will show mercy! You are an associate of the Doctor's!"
--->'''[[spoiler: River Song]]''': "I'm [[spoiler: River Song.]] Check your records again." ''(aims at the eyestalk)''
--->''[[{{Beat}} (A pause.)]]''
--->'''Dalek''': "...Mercy."
--->'''[[spoiler: River Song]]''': "Say it again?"
--->'''Dalek''': "Mercy!"
--->'''[[spoiler: River Song]]''': "One more time."
--->'''Dalek''': ''(shaking)'' "MERC-Y-Y-Y!"
** Followed up with:
--->'''Amy Pond''': "Where's the Dalek?"
--->[[spoiler:'''River Song''': ''(coldly)'' "It died."]]
** Hell, [[Creator/StevenMoffat the Moff]] made the ''opening episode'' of Series 6, a WhamEpisode! If thats not SerialEscalation, I don't know what is!

* ''TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager'': What crazy unrealistic situation will happen next week? How stupid and unrealistic will the characters' behavior be? How much longer can they talk about sex before they'll be forced to address another issue of teenage life? Who's the next girl to get knocked up?

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Adding to the above, how high will the Riders' levels get? How much more ridiculous will the suits look? How much can [[spoiler:Kuroto Dan]] [[RefugeInAudacity get away with]] (and can he get any [[LargeHam hammier]] in the process)? Will the next tie-in movies become even crazier? [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking How much of the show]] [[{{Determinator}} can Yuuya Takahashi write or supervise]]?

*** It should be noted that the warp scale was redesigned after TOS. In TOS, they routinely went past Warp 10, which was retconned as an older system of measuring warp speed that went by the formula "speed-of-light x warp factor cubed" (e.g. Warp 4 = 64''c'' = 19,186,717,312 m/s = Warp 3.48 [TNG scale]).
