A Facebook friend of mine, J.r. Klink, posted a sequence from an episode of 'Ellen' the other day. Not the talk show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, but her sitcom from back in the 1990s. (In"One For The Roadshow", Ellen found out that her unopened box of the Monopoly game was worth quite a lot of money when 'The Antique Roadshow' was coming to film in Clark.)

And it occurred to me that 'The Antiques Roadshow', like game shows such as 'Jeopardy!', 'Wheel Of Fortune' and 'The Price Is Right', and reality shows like 'Big Brother' and 'American Gladiators', would have its own televersion that could link other shows together. Martin Crain, the father of 'Frasier', appeared on an episode of 'The Antiques Roadshow' when it came to Seattle in 1999. And it's pozz'ble, just pozz'ble, that Kirk, the mailman of Stars Hollow, Ct., (as seen in the 'Gilmore Girls' episode "Go, Bulldogs!") saw Martin Crane on the show. (Kirk mentioned that he and his girl-friend Lulu watched the show.)

So in its own small way, 'The Antiques Roadshow' links 'Frasier', 'Ellen', and 'Gilmore Girls' together....

[Thanks, J.r.!]
