Looking for examples of television shows that develop into sci fi.

What shows begin with a plausible premise but develop into science fiction or fantasy? Usually shows that do this are already billed as sci-fi or fantasy, so you're really set up for it, usually from the first episode. Are there shows that take a while to get moving in this direction, like after a few episodes of normal stuff?
I've recently started watching Alias
on Netflix (for the first time), and by the 3rd episode I'm thinking a transition (at least partial) to aliens or magic would really make this show.
Does something like this exist?
Note: If the current show I'm watching actually does this
, you can tell me. I will only be happy if it does.
