I suppose game shows are considered an automatic part of Toobworld's mosaic, but they don't carry any heft unless they tie in with another series. 'Jeopardy' and 'Cheers', 'Wheel Of Fortune' and 'L.A. Law', 'American Gladiators' and 'Family Matters', for example.
'Password' serves as the link between 'The Odd Couple' and 'Mama's Family':
This connection doesn't include 'Carol Burnett And Friends' because that version of Eunice, Ed, and Mama belongs in Skitlandia, not Earth Prime-Time.
As the Trickster once said, "Reality is boring, that's why I change it whenever I can."
I'm just "The Man Who Viewed Too Much", and "Inner Toob" is a blog exploring and celebrating the 'reality' of an alternate universe in which everything that ever happened on TV actually takes place.
Most of my theories about the TV Universe come from thinking inside the box and thus can't be proven. But I've never been one to shy away from a tall tale.....
Remember: "The more you watch, the more you've seen!"
