While the Westphall site remains static, people keep finding Tommy all the time.

Artist Nicholas W Skyles has designed a "poster" and a new way to read Tommy's mind. Click on the pic and see the new way of looking at the Multiverse.

Meanwhile, MetaFilter is discussing Skyles' work and the Multiverse itself. And I've put in a little bit of Tommy history.

Ep. #5 of "castle" mentions the New York Ledger.

Even more Morleys: this time in Burn Notice (season three, episode 4). And according to Wikipedia they've appeared in other episodes of the show too...

Better Off Ted

(Link)

I don't know if this has been mentioned. In season 2 episode 5 a Dalek from Doctor Who can clearly be seen in the basement of Veridian Dynamics. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1568175/

I just can't see this counting. Based on what I've read (not very much, but still...), it sounds more like a fake Dalek, like what we would have in the real world (Yes, such things do exist; ask my chem teacher). This does not appear to be a crossover, just a cool reference.

I pretty sure Doctor Who is on the list in the first place because the TARDIS appears in the background of an episode of Red Dwarf. It's basically the same type of reference. Besides Daleks are time travelers it could easily have a very interesting back story. If you actually see the episode it is a Dalek from Doctor Who there is no mistaking it. The first time I saw the episode I had to rewind the DVR to make sure I had just seen a Dalek.

I say it's a legit reference.

Consider that Veridian Dynamics was s soul-less corporation who wouldn't give a thought to endangering their employees.

And there was a Dalek that crashed to Earth back in the 1960s, screaming for days as it burned. It was sold to various "collectors" until finally Henry Van Statton had it in 2012. ('Doctor Who' - "Dalek")

One of its previous owners may have been the Veridian Dynamic corporation.

New Munch connection!!!!

(Link)

Just got word from a tele-blogging buddy in the UK that the penultimate episode of the first season of a show called 'Luther' contained the following dialogue:

'They said something like "Get New York on the phone. Ask for Detective Munch of the Special Victims Unit."'

I know that might be of interest around these parts.....

Bush administration part of TommyVerse....

(Link)

A.L.F > A.L.F. The Animated Series > *Cartoon All Stars* > George H.W. Bush (also Slimer from Ghostbusters, The Smurfs, The Muppets, Garfield, Etc...)

Cartoon All Stars is a fat node in the TommyVerse!

a) Cartoons are not included in this site. See the rules.
b) Cartoon All-Stars does not count as a legit reference. All of the crossover characters are treated like fictional characters who come to life to help that kid with his drug problem. They are not in their own world.
c) George H.W. Bush introduced the cartoon. That does not imply that he is part of the action. Thereby, he is not one of the crossover characters.
d) Real people don't count as crossovers anyway. Again, see the rules.

Goodbye Golden Girls Universe!

(Link)

Since Blossom is already there, it must be noted that Sophia Petrillo cameoed on an episode of that show. Which means, no more Golden Girls, Golden Palace, or Empty Nest!

Yet another spinoff

(Link)

I also noticed that the chart still hasn't added NCIS: Los Angeles, which has of course been part of the Westphallverse all along due to being a backdoor spinoff from an older show that was already in.

Another Munch appearance

(Link)

Apparently, there is a cameo by Belzer (probably as Munch) on "M.O.N.Y." (Mayor of New York), an unsuccessful Levinson/Fontana pilot, back in 2007. I ven´t seen it, but there are some mentions on the net (not at IMDB, though). Tom O´Brien reports on it at inner toob.

To quote Pink Floyd: "Is there anybody out there?"

Although the character isn't named, William Daniels played one of Christina's medical board examiners on Gray's Anatomy. So if that was Dr. Mark Craig...

Just found this interesting link about StE's cast commenting on that infamous ending:

You know, if "The Wire" and "L&O" are in Tommy's head, then "Community" would be, too, because "The Wire" is mentioned specifically by the cast of "Community" in Season 1 Episode 24, and "L&O" is stylistically parodied in season 3, episode 17, complete with Leslie Hendrix as a "Botanist" giving the autopsy on a dead yam.
