* In the ''Series/NCIS'' season 1 episode "Dead Man Talking" (which came out in 2004), the team's attitude towards the woman who turns out to be a pre-op transsexual (as well as the killer of the week) comes off pretty transphobic nowadays. After TheReveal they refer to her as a "guy", or with male pronouns, even as a "he-she" (which some consider a slur these days). In particular, Gibbs' snark about "adding that misdemeanor to the murder charge", [[HarsherInHindsight regarding the woman having used the female restroom, is especially cringeworthy after the bathroom controversies of 2016]]. And Kate seems far more shocked at "Tony being on a date with a guy!", rather than Tony being on a date with a murderer responsible for the death of one of their fellow agents.

***Although it is worth considering that much of Chandler's animosity towards his father comes from the fact that he left his family for another man; while some of the jokes still come across as transphobic, the whole relationship is based on the divorce-child anger than anything else.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' gives a possible InUniverseExample with Picard's refusal to save populations threatened with natural disaster in the episodes "Homeward" and "Pen Pals" due to being prewarp, so doing so would violate the Prime Directive. Kirk would not approve...

* ''Series/StillStanding'' has one episode-long RunningGag mention that Bill took Tina (the youngest daughter) to a Bar. Bill, whenever this was mentioned, adds, "''AND GRILL''!". The joke may be lost on some - It's actually not as bad to have taken Tina to a bar and grill as the characters make it out to be. Many restaurants are in fact a "Bar and Grill" technically, and many actually ''do'' allow children, just as long as they do not consume alcohol.

** Invoked with the episode "The Germans": the last third of the episode revolves around Basil being outrageously culturally insensitive to his blameless German guests. The masterstroke is that Basil is concussed, so the audience can excuse his character as being totally out of his right mind while still gleefully enjoying the utterly un-PC humour.

** The earlier episodes of both shows would regularly have the police (and on occasion the district attorneys) bend or or violate the law to get convictions, such as by arranging for certain people to be unavailable for court, withholding evidence, and assaulting suspects. Elliot Stabler especially would use the JackBauerInterrogationTechnique just about every other episode to beat suspects into convicting, toyed with the idea of terrifying them, and confessed that he fantasizes about murdering the people he arrests. Over the course of TheNewTens (shortly after Christopher Meloni left the show), United States police officers were the subject of one scandal after another involving assault and unprovoked violence toward the people they're meant to protect, coupled with a justice system that fudges the details of each incident and protects officers guilty of such actions. Nowadays such episodes are quite difficult to watch, and you have to wonder how long Stabler would last in an era where everyone's first reaction to the police is to take out their phones.
