It took only two minutes for 'Women's Murder Club' to make an unofficial Toobworld link to another TV show that's on the air now. The murder victim was Theresa Woo, a six-time Pulitzer Prize winning reporter for the San Francisco Register. And the Register is where Dan Vasser, the leading character of 'Journeyman' works as well.

Another reporter at the paper ("WMC" version) is Cindy Thomas, but the office she works in looks nothing like the one where Dan is. (Maybe she's on another floor.)

The outside of the San Francisco Register building as seen in 'Women's Murder Club' is different from that in 'Journeyman'. It's more of a traditional building in style as seen on 'Journeyman', while its modern architecture with sweeping arch/ramps and a blindingly white facade in the pilot episode of 'Women's Murder Club'.

This is easy enough to splain away - different sides of the same building; the side from 'Women's Murder Club' was a much later addition. Or it could be that the paper has several different locations in town. As the Rozerem dream-beaver would say, "Whatever."

At any rate, it's doubtful we'll ever see a crossover. ABC airs 'Women's Murder Club' while 'Journeyman' is on NBC. And for the most part, with rare exceptions, networks don't believe in Television Without Borders. So no chance for Cindy and Dan to bump into each other at the paper, no matter which floor they're on!

So now the San Francisco Register has:
