* Although the previous [=series/seasons=] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar got Crap Past The Radar]], the 4th and final season of Brødrene Dal, Brødrene Dal og mysteriet om Karl [=XIIs=] gamasjer, takes the cake. There's swearing, kidnapping of a minor, verbal abuse, an episode where [[ClusterBleepBomb there's tons of bleeping]] (although they swear with no bleeping in the next episode). If it was ever to be shown outside Norway, it would have received an 18+ in most countries, as there's no FamilyFriendlyStripper, but a real stripper; you can [[http://youtu.be/tNbba9C1bxU?t=18m22s see her]] for yourself. Other examples make you wonder how it even managed to get aired, like one [[SketchComedy opening sketch]] that had the narrator sneak into the ladies' restroom (it's suddenly "okay" when he's the handsome narrator), one character believing one of the leads to be [[http://youtu.be/qzAi8Wca3dQ?t=27m33s wearing women's underwear]] (he's a man), and suddenly an ending fit for a CrimeSeries, the narrator trying to make money selling [[http://youtu.be/kAg5V-ZdtxU?t=23m34s underwear based on the brothers]], a drunk general with a cabinet filled with [[http://youtu.be/kAg5V-ZdtxU?t=13m31s alcoholic beverages]], the [[http://youtu.be/qzAi8Wca3dQ?t=19m12s bleeping part]], just to mention a few.
* The German teen drama ''Series/AlleinGegenDieZeit'' is aimed at teens and young adults. Yet, it can easily be compared to high-profile thrillers like ''Series/TwentyFour''. It's first season featured a school hostage taking, a fascist political conspiracy, attempted mass murder, an unvilified portrayal of ethnic gang members, police corruption, depression, gun violence and liberal swearing. The second season was even DarkerAndEdgier, throwing [[CruelAndUnusualDeath cruel and unusual deaths]], terrorism, and lethal biological weapons into the mix. Especially jarring since ''[[GermanTVStations KiKa]]'' is aimed at children younger than thirteen.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' is now fifty-plus years old and very much seen as a family/children's show in the U.K., but it's been violent from the very beginning.
** A BBC audience research survey conducted in 1972 found that ''Doctor Who'' was the most violent show it produced at the time! The show was especially violent during the first few Fourth Doctor seasons (12-14), consistently getting complaints and eventually forcing a {{Retool}} (for instance, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E5TheBrainofMorbius "The Brain Of Morbius"]] (1976) features a man getting shot in the stomach with an explosion of blood, then crawling, dying, down a corridor).

*** It was partially addressed in ''The Wedding of River Song'', which suggests that Amy's something of a StepfordSmiler on the matter. When Amy has Madame Kovarian at her mercy, she remarks, in a TranquilFury, that Kovarian stole her baby from her, and hurt said baby, and she's never going to see said baby again (while she knows River, timelines mean that she's never going to see her baby girl again). Kovarian begs her help, saying that the Doctor would do it, and she would never want to disappoint him. Amy agrees that the Doctor is very dear to her. She also notes something else - ''he's not there.'' She then not only leaves Madame Kovarian to her death, but ensures it, with a PreMortemOneLiner: "River Song didn't get it all from you. Sweetie." After that, she strolls out, coolly making date plans with a somewhat stunned Rory (who she's just remembered - long story) while Madame Kovarian dies screaming. While the timeline is erased, Amy remembers and is haunted by the act.

** ''PowerRangersSamurai'' was nearly a ShotForShotRemake of the DarkerAndEdgier ''SamuraiSentaiShinkenger,'' but occasionally, the endangered-kid-of-the-week would have a less tragic story (Dad is never around vs. Dad died in a MonsterOfTheWeek battle we didn't see.) leading many to cry "{{Bowdlerization}}" and "DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER" at first. However, why is the dad not around? Work? Or "never around" just means "out all day for two or three days 'cause he's looking for the perfect birthday present" or something like that? Nope, he's in the military, busy with a little something we like to call TheWarOnTerror. Other cuts to ''Shinkenger'' footage are more surgical, less "turn the bad thing into kittens and rainbows" and more "get the bad thing [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar past the radar]] while keeping its impact." The past team who sealed Master Xandred, Jayden's dad included, still died, and apparently a car with a guy in it being crushed is okay if it happens quickly enough. Deker's and Dayu's story is very different from Juzo Fuwa[[note]][[spoiler: revealed to be a mass-murdering BloodKnight ''before'' he was a Gedoushuu (Nighlok)]][[/note]] and Dayu Usukawa [[note]] [[spoiler: jealous that the man she loved married another, she burned down the wedding. Her would-be love's soul being trapped within is what makes her shamisen - there's such a thing as a harmonium and ''that ain't it,'' Tzachor! - so important to her.]][[/note]] but it's a doozy on its own, and as such it's ''much'' more tragic than Shinkenger when [[spoiler: in the end they cannot be saved.]] When [[spoiler: Dayu]] dies in the same manner as her Shinkenger counterpart, [[spoiler: she doesn't resist at all because she just wants to be with Deker again.]] Also, the especially torturous effects of KnightOfCerebus Akumaro Sujigarano's (Serrator's) monsters on the populace remain. Victims perpetually feel like you're starving to death and food makes it ''worse?'' Stays. People's souls placed in inanimate objects, still conscious? Yup. Bug critters force their way into your mouth and while they're in you feel mind-numbing agony? Ditto.

* Spoofed in an early episode of ''MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', in the “Storytime” sketch. Eric Idle plays a children’s show host reading a storybook; except the stories he tries to read take progressively more obscene turns...

*** ToQger did advertise as a comedy series in the vain of Carranger and Go-onger (both of which are not well received by American Audiences). However, ToQger dropped that the Amnesiac Rangers were Rangers in part because, whatever happened to them, it left them in a state that wasn't death... but close enough... much of the series beyond that revolves around that mystery.

** The arrival of Creator/PeterCapaldi as an older-looking Doctor than recent incumbents in Series 8 marked a change of tone towards more mature storylines and elements. In his first episode, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E1DeepBreath "Deep Breath"]], the Doctor drinks alcohol and appears to kill a villain; the episode also includes several long scenes of "relationship dialogue", including one in which a character (accurately) perceives companion Clara Oswald has having, at least at one point, considered the Doctor "a lover". As the season progressed, a LoveTriangle subplot was introduced, and the season ended with a disturbing storyline about death and grief.

** The penultimate episode of Series 9, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS35E11HeavenSent "Heaven Sent"]], '''screams''' this trope. It is an extended-length story in which the Twelfth Doctor is more or less the ONLY character, TrappedInAnotherWorld, stalked by a creature with a TouchOfDeath drawn from his childhood nightmares about a dead woman, subjected to ColdBloodedTorture, and slowly DrivenToMadness...all in the wake of his beloved companion Clara Oswald [[spoiler: being killed off]] in the previous episode "Face the Raven". It opens with a monologue that's a metaphor about Death stalking a person from the moment they're born, and the climax hinges upon, effectively, [[spoiler: the Doctor committing suicide billions of times over '''by choice''' that he may relive this Hell until he escapes]]. Jump to 0:15 of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2cP2uEyDZU this BBC One Christmas advert for 2016]] to see the Beeb pretty much acknowledge this as pretty strong meat for children.
