Surprisingly, there weren't that many Super Bowl blipverts this year which merited televisiological study.  But I picked the batch that were worth the time...

This Super Bowl blipvert confirms that the 'Today' show's reality can be transformed into its own televersion; it's not just the fictional versions seen in shows like 'Will & Grace' and 'The Michael J. Fox Show' that are accepted as part of Toobworld. Both Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric are eligible for entry into the TVXOHOF, by the way.

This can't be a sequel to 'Breaking Bad'. But it's pozz'ble, just pozz'ble, that it happened at some point during the show's timeline. Other than that, I would suggest Skitlandia as the home for this incarnation of Walter White.

When 'Heroes' first aired, it was in Earth Prime-Time. But with the arrival of Future Hiro to talk with Peter in the subway, the Toobworld Timeline was sundered and the show followed the heroes' storyline into an alternate dimension. It probably created other off-shoot Toobworlds before the show finally ran out of steam. (I wouldn't know, I dropped out during the second season.) So this sequel will have no bearing on the main Toobworld....

Until now, all of the characters in the Snickers ads who had transformed into celebrities when they were hungry had shared the same timeline as well as dimension with the celebrities who replaced them.  But this is 2015's Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi; they weren't even on the show business radar yet.

I toyed with the idea that maybe celebrities were using quantum leap technology to leap into people at random, the new fad for the idle rich.  But that's too complicated.  I think it better to consider these Jekyll/Hyde transformations are not supposed to be considered as the celebrities but following a similar type.  So Marcia didn't transform into Danny Trejo but into the type of homicidal maniac he could play no matter the timeline.

The real problem is that this was a specific event in the lives of the Bradys.  And I don't think the timeline was rewritten, not one line.  So although it might seem unbelievable to us in the real world, it's entirely pozz'ble that Marcia was hit a second time by a football thrown by Peter.  And that's when Marcia's inner Machete surfaced.

I could say the same about Jan transforming into Buscemi, but this isn't about Jan.  It never is.  It's about Marcia!  Marcia!  Marcia!

This is easy.  The kid's a ghost.  A ghost with the power of serlinguism.  Case closed.
