To explain (I hope):

Magnum PI which started in 1980 was set in the same universe as Hawaii 5 0 (started 1968) (indeed its location was moved to Hawaii from LA because 5 0 was ending and the network wanted to retain the link).

Early Magnum episodes mentioned Hawaii 5 0 as a reality (eg Higgins phoning 5 0 for help) several times to cement this link.

The same creator (Donald Bellasario) ran Quantum Leap in the late 80s/early 90s and filmed scenes for a Magnum revival episode where Sam Beckett 'leaped' into Magnum. The episode never went to air because a Magnum movie was being set up (but was later axed).

Bellasario then created JAG, which spawned NCIS, and NCIS: LA - which have run through the 90s, 00s up to 2013 (indeed the most recent NCIS episode had a crossover with JAG bringing back a character from that show).

NCIS has also had recent crossover episodes with the revival update of Hawaii 5 0.

So, in essence, there is a chain of linked TV series here from 1968 through to 2013.

Can anyone think of a sequence that covers more shows in the same universe or longer lasting.

(BTW despite the NCIS - Hawaii 50 link - Magnum has also been mentioned in NCIS as if it were a fictional TV show, thus confusing things somewhat)

Definitely St Elsewhere through the mind of TOMMY WESTPHALL. As theonelyweeman rightly states above.



280 shows are connected to Homicide: Life on the Street and St. Elsewhere, for a grand total of 282 series.

There are 15 non-US shows in the Tommyverse. Most notably the Candian teen series "Degrassi Junior High" and its spin-offs, "Doctor Who" and its spin-offs, as well as the only non-English language series "Paris Section Criminelle" - a French-language version of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent".

The shows span from 1951 (I Love Lucy) to the present (23 shows are still on the air).

Full grid and explanations as at link provided in previous post.

How are they all set in the same Universe?

I would have thought either Star Trek or Stargate.

Read the story as per the previous poster's link. It is a very famous theory tying together the above list of shows !

To explain (I hope):

Magnum PI which started in 1980 was set in the same universe as Hawaii 5 0 (started 1968) (indeed its location was moved to Hawaii from LA because 5 0 was ending and the network wanted to retain the link).

Early Magnum episodes mentioned Hawaii 5 0 as a reality (eg Higgins phoning 5 0 for help) several times to cement this link.

The same creator (Donald Bellasario) ran Quantum Leap in the late 80s/early 90s and filmed scenes for a Magnum revival episode where Sam Beckett 'leaped' into Magnum. The episode never went to air because a Magnum movie was being set up (but was later axed).

Bellasario then created JAG, which spawned NCIS, and NCIS: LA - which have run through the 90s, 00s up to 2013 (indeed the most recent NCIS episode had a crossover with JAG bringing back a character from that show).

NCIS has also had recent crossover episodes with the revival update of Hawaii 5 0.

So, in essence, there is a chain of linked TV series here from 1968 through to 2013.

Can anyone think of a sequence that covers more shows in the same universe or longer lasting.

(BTW despite the NCIS - Hawaii 50 link - Magnum has also been mentioned in NCIS as if it were a fictional TV show, thus confusing things somewhat)
Just because Bellisario later created JAG and NCIS, does not mean that they are linked to Magnum, Quantum Leap, or the original Five-O.

You have two separate groups of series there:

Magnum, Hawaii Five-O, and (if an unaired episode is counted), Quantum Leap.

and

JAG, NCIS, NCIS:LA, and Hawaii Five-0.

I think I may have spotted a major flaw in the whole TOMMYVERSE theory, A lot of the shows on the list have on occasions featured real people playing them selves. So by the logic of the theory pretty much every TV show or film ever made both factual and fictional must be part of the Tommy Westphall universe. Like a lot of these theories the author has cherry picked shows that fit the theory and disregarded those that don't.

I think you're taking it a bit too seriously, It's slightly tongue in cheek, nobody seriously thinks all those shows are the imaginings of an autistic child...

To be fair it's the showrunners self referencing habits that have led to this kind of thing, like both Spike in Buffy and The Cigarette Smoking Man in The X-Files smoking Marley brand cigarettes, Slusho brand beverages in both Heroes, Fringe and Cloverfield, the character of John Munch appearing in Law & Order, The X Files, The Wire etc

Is this the longest post ever? And to be honest pretty pointless
I'll tell you what is pointless. You quoting the entire post so we have to scroll through it all again just to read this throwaway remark.

On topic, in the last season of the new version of Hawaii Five 0, Magnum is also mentioned as if it were a fictional series. A couple of episodes prior to this, the actor who played Rick in Magnum, appeared in H50 as a totally different character.

Another thing to add is that Hawaii 5-0 and NCIS are set in the same universe as they have crossed over (H5.0/NCIS:LA), LA is a spin off from NCIS so obviously set in the same universe

Yet

In an NCIS Episode Hawaii 5-0 (original) is mentioned as a fictional TV show (cant remember if they were watching it or just mentioned the show)

You could say the 5-0 team (current version) are named by the governor after the Tv show but then the names are the same so that can't be right.

So its very confusing if you dig to deep into these things,

This is interesting. I would say the criteria for crossover would have to involve a shared character or set of events within the fiction of the show, not just a mention of a show outside of that fictional universe.

Would Star Trek be the most obvious one starting in 1966 and running to the end of Enterprise in 2005 (ignoring the final episode of course). Timeline wise characters from DS9 interacted with the original series characters. In an Enterprise episode it continued the storyline set up in a feature film involved the TNG crew (First Contact) and the TNG series creating a closed time loop of 200 years.

Can we add Star Trek characters time travelling?

The US daytime soaps have a pretty lengthy history of crossovers dating from the 1950's to today which would have it that most of them are or were based in the same universe during the show's runs.

As The World Turns began in 1956 and took in a character from The Brighter Day when it was cancelled. It also spun off Our Private World and crossed over with Another World which is set in the same universe as Somerset and Texas as well as The Young and the Restless which is set in the same universe as it's sister soap The Bold and the Beautiful.

All of the ABC soaps were set in the same universe starting in 1963 with General Hospital which spunoff The Young Marrieds, Port Charles and General Hospital: Night Shift as well as crossing over with All My Children, One Life to Live, Loving and The City.

A lot of these shows have been cancelled but there are a few of them still on air which keeps the continuity going.

If you exclude the time travel part - the Star Trek series cover around 200 years in their various incarnations.

Not surprised you did not spot that (both caveats were in my OP) as that long, long Tommyverse nonsense destroyed the purpose really.

I mean that St Elsewhere thing is fun - I loved the show also - but as I noted in my OP there were CLEAR reasons to connect the shows in the chain that I set up from within those shows themselves.

And that chain is already longer than Star Trek OS to TNG, DS9, Voyager and Enterprise.

The 1960s onward Hawaii 5 0 and the current one on today ARE linked by virtue not only of the NCIS:LA crossovers but also the fact that Ed Asner has appeared in both Hawaii 5 0s playing the same character with the modern version continuing a story from the original.

Would Star Trek be the most obvious one starting in 1966 and running to the end of Enterprise in 2005 (ignoring the final episode of course). Timeline wise characters from DS9 interacted with the original series characters. In an Enterprise episode it continued the storyline set up in a feature film involved the TNG crew (First Contact) and the TNG series creating a closed time loop of 200 years.
But the chain in my OP already runs from 1968 (Hawaii 50) through to 2013 (50 and NCIS LA still intact). So 6 years longer than TV trek.

Though if CBS get a new Trek show together that might change.

The US daytime soaps have a pretty lengthy history of crossovers dating from the 1950's to today which would have it that most of them are or were based in the same universe during the show's runs.

As The World Turns began in 1956 and took in a character from The Brighter Day when it was cancelled. It also spun off Our Private World and crossed over with Another World which is set in the same universe as Somerset and Texas as well as The Young and the Restless which is set in the same universe as it's sister soap The Bold and the Beautiful.

All of the ABC soaps were set in the same universe starting in 1963 with General Hospital which spunoff The Young Marrieds, Port Charles and General Hospital: Night Shift as well as crossing over with All My Children, One Life to Live, Loving and The City.

A lot of these shows have been cancelled but there are a few of them still on air which keeps the continuity going.
In UK Soaps, Brookside (1982 to 2003) referred to events in Emmerdale (the plane crash) as a Brookie universe incident - linking these two UK soaps and creating a soap universe chain of 2 from the early 70s when Emmerdale started to today.

Coronation Street has been referenced in East Enders and Brookside but as fictional soaps. Not, like Emmerdale, as real life in the Brookside universe.
