* ''Series/{{M*A*S*H}}'': While the 4077th MASH is supposed to be stationed in and around Uijeongbu, South Korea, the hillsides and plains look very suspiciously like the terrain of Southern California. Also, the regular sub-arctic temperatures depicted in multiple episodes such as "Baby It's Cold Outside" simply do not occur to the magnitude depicted on the show.

* ''Series/MurderSheWrote'': In one episode, a character is referred to as coming from a small town 20 miles east of Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Twenty miles east of Sheboygan would put you deep in the heart of Lake Michigan. And no, there isn't even an inhabited island in the vicinity.

* Pick any Creator/DisneyChannel KidCom. ''[[Franchise/DisneyChannelLiveActionUniverse Any]]''. The most egregious example is perhaps ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' which depicts the eponymous roadway (in real life, a major street) as some sort of weird pedestrian-only walkway with enough sharp turns, pedestrians, ''stairways'' and a sufficiently narrow width to make it impossible for a car to navigate.

** In one episode, Harm's partner is kidnapped by a gang in South Central Los Angeles. They tell Harm to drive back to Camp Pendleton, grab one of their members who has joined the Marines, and bring him back in one hour. Camp Pendleton is 90 miles from LosAngeles - even with no traffic it would be extremely difficult to make the drive down there in one hour, let alone back.

* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': One episode had them going to a trailer storage area across from the Walmart in Lynchburg, VA. There is one Walmart in Lynchburg and no room across the street from it for about anything because of a railroad track.

** The most blatant TheyJustDidntCare moment came in Season 4, where the Terrorminions hijack a nuclear missile transport and manage to lose the satellite tracking in the mountains... ''[[TheMountainsOfIllinois of IOWA]]''.
