Top 5: Most Memorable TV Crossovers
What are the most memorable TV show crossovers of all time?
Earlier this week the CW's The Flash crossed over with CBS' Supergirl.
The Flash and Arrow are pretty connected over on the CW, including the show Legends of Tomorrow.
Vulture.com put together a list of the most memorable TV Show Crossovers. Here are the Top 5.
This is kind of spin-off that turned into a crossover. The Bionic Woman, Jamie Sommers was a character that spun off from ABC's The Six Million Dollar Man onto her own NBC series. They teamed up to face the urban legend Big Foot. Big Foot (SPOILER ALERT) turned out to be an alien. In the '90's there were three reunion team-ups between Lee Majors' Steve Austin and Lindsay Wagner's Jamie Sommers. The first one just happened to be Sandra Bullock's big debut!
The Jeffersons were spun off from All in the Family. In 1995, George and "Weezy" made a guest appearance as the Jeffersons on Will Smith's The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I wonder if that means Smith could make a visit to the Bunker's old neighborhood and visit Archie's Place?
Back in 1986, Angela Lansbury's Jessica Fletcher took a vacation in Hawaii and ended up crossing paths with Tom Selleck's Magnum, PI. She ended up solving a couple of murders that Magnum was accused of. Magnum spent most of the crossover in jail, while Jessica ran around solving the crimes.
The second season of the legendary Batman series with Adam West and Burt Ward featured a visit by Van Williams as The Green Hornet and Bruce Lee as Kato. What made this epic was that Lee was a martial arts legend. The high point of the two-part crossover was a fight sequence between Kato and Robin. The story goes that while filming the episodes, he created such an intimidating persona he actually scared Burt Ward. The two fought to a draw.
Paul Reiser turns 59 today. Mad About You, Seinfeld and Friends were all part of NBC's Thursday Night Must-See TV line-up. All three were set in New York and all three were inter-connected. Paul had an apartment in Jerry's building he sublet to Kramer. Paul and Jamie were regular's at Riff's where Phoebe's evil-twin Ursula was a waitress. Jamie once stopped in to Central Perk and confused Phoebe for Ursula. In one episode, Jamie caused a black-out that affected both Mad About You and Friends. No surprise, Seinfeld was self-involved and completely ignored the power outage.
