Another Homicide Crossover [May. 27th, 2009|10:01 am]
Tommy Westphall's Mind: A Multiverse Explored
[mood |pleasedpleased]

According to Tom Myers'  LO:SVU site, the season finale will guest star Carol Kane reprising her role of Gwen Munch, one of John´s ex-wives who appeared previously in H:LOTS ep. #85 ("All is Bright"), way back in 1997.

This is what makes that whole crossover business so interesting.

Re: Re: Spaceships and Sesame Street and Little Yellow Men

johnmunch speaking - darn log-in is acting up again.

I just found a TV movie, JOYS, broadcast on March 5, 1976. It stars several dozen (!) real-life comedians (among them Groucho Marx in his last part) ending as face-down floaters in Bob Hope´s swimming pool. Several police detectives are investigating:

Angie Dickinson (as Police Woman Pepper Anderson),
Mike Connors (as Joe Mannix),
Jim Hutton (as Ellery Queen),
David Janssen (as Harry O[rwell])
Telly Savalas (as Lt. Kojak),
and Abe Vigoda (as Lt. Phil Fish of Barney Miller Fame).

The Westphall connection is established by the Mannix character, also appearing in Diagnosis:Murder, The Lucy Show, and his own show.
Furthermore, Fish had an eponymous show, and Pepper Anderson debuted in an episode of Police Story, an anthology show.

So, JOYS brings in seven more shows. The list grows ever longer ...

Almost forgot: Dickinson as Pepper also appears in RINGO.

I just found two more possible crossovers lurking in George & Leo. In the same episode that had crossovers with The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart (appropriately called The Cameo Show)), they also implicitely had characters from Taxi and Dear John. I just thought I'd mention this.

George & Leo

"The Cameo Show" is known to us, but just from guides, not from the screen.

Have you seen it and can you clarify the cameos for us?

Re: George & Leo

Sorry it took so long to respond to this.

I saw the episode and everybody who participated (I think Suzanne Pleshette was the only holdout) played characters other than those established in the previous series. Tom Poston, for example, was a traffic cop who pulled them over.

But at the very end, Larry, Darryl, and Darryl did show up as "themselves" and just barely missed meeting Newhart's character.
