Just watched Betty White’s interview on The Daily Show and I think I’m probably not the first to come up with this, but I think Phoebe from Friends is a direct scriptwriting descendant from Betty White’s Rose from Golden Girls, who was, I suspect, based on Georgette from Mary Tyler Moore. I wonder if that makes Kenzie from Lost Girl Georgette’s great granddaughter?
Intense conversations in the evening lead to silliness in the witching hour.
Who else are proto-characters out there that we can draw lines (and sure, stretch the boundaries of characters to the point where we end up with only eight characters for the eight stories in the world)? I wonder if you grid out the stories vs the characters into the 64 possibilities, will you end up with at least one season of watchable TV? Probably a question for XKCD, and people who don’t need to be AT work at 830 tomorrow.
