Re: episodes that are part of two different TV series
When ER and Chicago Hope both premiered on the same night and time slot, Chicago Hope got slaughtered in the ratings. There was a Picket Fences episode where they go to Chicago Hope and after a disagreement, one character says maybe they should've gone to the other hospital. And the doctor replied that they don't talk about the other hospital there.
Back then, I always felt ER was the far superior series. Too bad the series descended into suck and fail.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
