    Shared Universes on TV

    What cross overs do you recall that tie various tv shows together?? One off the oddest I recall is the cross over between MAGNUM PI and MURDER, SHE WROTE. One more action oriented show meeting a "low action/ no action" show!!

    Sequels to classic TV shows

    Now that we have Young Maverick, are you enjoying it?

    I've finally finished watching all the episodes and I enjoyed it quite a bit. It does appear that the two part episode, rather than using the two seperate episodes, used a version that aired as a CBS late movie airing from the early 80s - edited together as a movie. It didn't stop me from...

    Dark Shadows sells well. Would others?

    I wonder if other soaps would sell on DVD/blurry? There are shows that were short, like DS. Some were tailor made for release sets, like PORT CHARLES. During the end of its run it was done in "books" that could be released. I think they could sell decently. Anyone else?

    Nearing the end...

    Well, it has been a long time. I have waited and waited for Warner to finish up it's 'Maverick' related material with YOUNG MAVERICK. It seems it would have made sense to do so on the heals of the final season of MAVERICK and the release of BRET MAVERICK. It would have maximized interest...

    OFF TOPIC - A wish list of what you would have liked or heard "may have been"

    So we occassionally here about possible spin offs from various shows that don't sell for whatever reason. Two examples that come right to mind are the proposed spin off of 'I Love Lucy' for Fred and Ethel. But those two actors declined as they didn't really like each other. Another is...

    For some odd reason, I find that a lot of the shows I would like to see released on DVD or BluRay are sequels to shows that are already released - yep, spin offs. Maybe it's the completist in me or whatever, but I like to see known characters in different situations. And let me say that...

    Prime time character recasts that were better than the original actor?

    So on prime time series that you have watched, what character recasts do you think we're even better than the original actor? I'll start with ROSEANN. Becky #2. I thought she just played Becky as a less hateful, more like able girl. WIN! DYNASTY. I am a fan of Emma SAMs and totally preferred...

    This is the one western from the WB that I have yet to purchase, for whatever reason. Thus, I have a question. In the seasons that Clint staged a walk out and WB aired other shows under the CHEYENNE umbrella, are those non-Clint episodes included in the series sets are held out totally for...
