I first received this as an email forward. I searched for it myself and found the original page (home.vicnet.net.au). This is the craziest thing I've ever seen. Apparently, there are 179 television series (from the past many years) that can be connected by character crossovers. The central crossover is the one between "Homicide: Life On The Street" & "St. Elsewhere." And because the story of "St. Elsewhere" was found out to be the dream of Tommy Westphall, the autistic child, every connected show is also a dream. I'm too dumbfounded by the premise right now to even remember a small fraction of these crossovers, but they're all detailed in the key.

Some of these connections are pretty dubious, unless I misunderstood what they are trying to accomplish.



    6. Bottom right: St Elsewhere's Mark Craig talked about M*A*S*H's BJ Hunnicut.




Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight...

Using that logic, if anyone of those shows talked about Fidel Castro, then The West Wing is connected because he was in the recent episode "Ninety Miles Away."

They explained that towards the end of the key, using examples of Jay Leno and Alex Trebek. Basically, real people don't count.

I notice that Newhart is included in the list of 173 linked shows. So does that mean that Bob Newhart was having the same dream as the austistic kid, or was the autistic kid dreaming that Bob Newhart was also dreaming?

This reminds me of something I heard regarding Seinfeld. In one episode, he mentioned that he had never seen "I Love Lucy". Well, technically, through the use of cross-overs, that's because they take place in the same universe, as listed below:

The Ricardo's, from "I Love Lucy", once stayed at the apartment of the Williams', from "The Danny Thomas Show."
One of Danny Williams' writers was Buddy Sorrell from "The Dick Van Dyke Show". The star within the show from "The Dick Van Dyke Show", Alan Brady, appeared on "Mad About You." And of course, Paul Buchman from "Mad About You" sublet his bachelor pad to Kramer on "Seinfeld."

It also makes me wonder about how many shows are technically spinoffs of other shows (like Mork & Mindy being a Happy Days spinoff and so on).

Well, Happy Days had another spinoff: Joanie Love Chachi.

The Dukes of Hazzard had ENOS, and the cartoon show, too. Both entirely forgettable, though :-)
