Re: Crossovers that never happened but you wish would

One could go for a no-brainer, like "The Munsters" meeting "The Addams Family" or ponder a total WFT like "Hawaii 5-0" crossed with "The Andy Griffith Show".

Re: Crossovers that never happened but you wish would

Back when CBS had more crime dramas than they do now (if you can imagine that), I was expecting a story to begin on Cold Case that goes to CSI: Miami that goes to NCIS that goes to The Mentalist that goes to Without a Trace that goes to Criminal Minds that goes to CSI:NY that goes to CSI that ends on Numbers.

Re: Crossovers that never happened but you wish would

Here are three shows that seemed to me to exist very much in the same universe: "Cheers", "Barney Miller" and "Night Court" (excusing the fact that Judge Stone and Harry the "Hat" could NOT, in fact, be the same person.)

Can you imagine a conversation with Dan Fielding and Sam Malone exchanging notes? Or Arthur Dietrich chatting facts with Cliff Clavin while Fraiser Crane slowly looses his mind?

I'm still mystified over USA not arranging a Monk/Psych crossover...
Since Psych is still running, there may still be hope!

given the forthcoming 3 way crossover between CSI, its a shame CBS could not shoe horned at least a reference to Cold Case in, Cold Case is in the CSIverse already

I'd love to see a Dr. House (House) and Dr. Lightman (Lie to Me) crossover.

Monk is ending, though, isn't it?

speaking of Cold Case though, it's too bad that the original Canadian show isn't still running. I'd love to see characters from Cold Case and Cold Squad get together and immediately start arguing over who ripped who off.

(for the record, it's neither, as anyone who remembers The Enigma Files - which was on in 1980, well before either of those - will attest.)

I'm sure Dr. Crane and Detective Harris would be discussing wine and art.

Maybe there'll be one between the original and UK versions of Law & Order.

And I just had a great idea for a drinking game. Take one drink every time a nuBSG actor shows up on Cold Squad... You will probably be unconscious by the end of the episode.

Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall when Bull and Woody talked?

Re: Crossovers that never happened but you wish would

I like to think that Mac MacDonald's character from Aliens is Captain Hollister from Red Dwarf. The reason why he has such a short temper in Aliens is because it's his last day with Weyland-Yutani before shipping out to join the Jupiter Mining Corporation (narrowly missing the subsequent alien massacre). Now, you may point out that the character in Aliens wears a name badge that says, "Simpson." I argue that that is Captain Hollister's real name. I refer you to the scene in "Back in the Red, Part III" where Captain Hollister admits in his personal log that he used to be "Dennis the donut boy" before he blackmailed his way to the Captaincy.

Which would be very weird since all of the episodes of the British version are remakes of really old episodes from the 1st few seasons of the American version (back when Ben Stone was the lead prosecutor instead of Jack McCoy).

I would have loved to see a DS9/TNG crossover, during TNG's seventh season. I'm suprised they never did one. It could have been a big two hour epic. There were a few comic book crossover stories.
Well, there were some crossovers technically, although never a large scale one. There was one episode in season six of TNG that took place on DS9 and featured Bashir. Quark appeared on TNG once as well. And of course, several TNG characters appeared on DS9.

I know that's not what you mean though. What do you think would've been the big plot?
They did sort of bounce that Maquis plotline between the 2 shows. The controversial treaty with the Cardassians was first introduced on TNG in "Journey's End." This lead to the formation of the Maquis on DS9 in "The Maquis, Parts I & II." After that, the TNG crew encountered the Maquis in "Preemptive Strike."

Yep, though that probably leaves him more available to make a guest shot elsewhere... Such as in Psych

I'd love to see House MD and Scrubs cross-over... Can you imagine Dr. House and Dr. Cox in the same room? Man, what I'd give to see THAT.
