It’s not often that you get a chance to walk around in your own imagination. When I made an impromptu trip to Baltimore last fall, I knew there was one thing I HAD to do: Visit the building where HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET was shot 25 years ago.
It’s an interesting question: What episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series are explicitly in continuity because they were referenced in the Trek movies? Could you state that, say, “A Taste Of Armageddon” definitely happened to our heroes because it was referenced in one of the films? Could you find references to the entire television series if you looked hard enough?
It seemed like an interesting challenge. And since I was going through a bout of insomnia when I first read the question, I decided to find out.
Like most of you, I have a platonic ideal of certain characters that I carry around in my head. And a lot of times, it has to do with who I saw play a particular part when I was at an impressionable age. I’ve had a few of them bouncing around in my head this week, so I thought I’d share.
Travis introduces a new feature, Sunday Morning, with a miscellany of stuff found around the internet that you may find interesting. YMMV.
