The guys over at "Tommy Westphall's Mind" (link to the left), and their faithful followers, have come up with plenty of new additions to the Westphallian version of the TV Universe, thanks to the Morley's brand of cigarettes.

Morley's first came to notice with many appearances on 'The X-Files' as the brand of choice for Cigarette Smoking Man. (But according to Wikipedia, they first appeared in an episode of 'Mission: Impossible'.)

It was thanks to my Toobworld ally Hugh that I learned they also made an appearance in an episode of 'The Power Rangers'. Then it turned out that Spike the vampire on 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' smoked the brand as well.

After that, the mentions and sightings of Morley's cigarettes kept piling up, like the butts at an all-night poker game.

Recently, the Westphallians found out from a visitor that Morley's made an appearance in an episode of 'CSI'. This was cause for excitement, as that automatically brings in the two spin-offs, 'CSI: Miami' and 'CSI: NY'.

And then it happened again just a few weeks ago with 'Criminal Minds':

"On tonight's episode, "North Mammon", 13 Morley 100s cigarette butts are an important piece of evidence. I don't watch the show, but I happened to flip past it just as this reference appeared."

As I watch 'Lost', there was no way I was going to find that out myself, which is why it's always good to hang out with the competition. LOL!

Wikipedia has a list of other sightings for the cancer sticks, to which can now be added 'CSI':

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'
'Criminal Minds'

'Jake 2.0.'
'Killer Instinct'
'Malcolm in the Middle'
'Mission Impossible'
'Nash Bridges'
'The Outer Limits'
'Space Above And Beyond'
'The X-Files'
