I goof on the conspiracy theories, but love finding connections all the same.

I hadn't seen any of these for so long, (and their not commercially available ) so I've been recording them off TV.

At first the epiphany is a very happy surprise...once she has the intact marker and places the paper over it. I thought she was packing them for travel and then she breaks out the pencil to make the rubbing.

Batman doing his own research and discovering her true plan was another nudge.

But her final scene, after all Batman and Catwoman have a love hate relationship too, was a piano on the head!

Claw mentions "homages" in the other thread, but really, how many "homages" from the same source, nay the SAME EPISODE before you can say "ripoff" and be reasonably correct?

I found the broadcast during the middle of the second season and their only now finishing up the first season. I have to say the differences are interesting. From writing to content to style, the shows evolved AND devolved!

I didn't go into the lighting and shot compositions, but the tilted angles aside there are more similarities!

It'd be funny if that really was the source. But it's lucky that we never got 'biff' or 'pow' graphics accompanying the action in TLC. We almost got them in KOTCS, when Robin, er Mutt, was punching his way out of the cafe.

Another Indy reference was made in the show Castle.The Castle episode was called To Love and Die in L.A. and it was aired on May 2,2011.

Richard Castle:(Talking to Kate)Wow!Somebody's up early.

Kate Beckett:(Saying hello)Hey.

Richard Castle:You pack a murder board?

Kate Beckett:Concierge called down and then 10 minutes later voila.

Richard Castle:Maurice is amazing isn't he?I bet if I ordered the Ark of the Covenant he'd come through.

Kate Beckett:Wouldn't you be afraid to open it?

Richard Castle:No,it only melts Nazis.

"The Parking Space" on Sienfeld is on right now and George is wearing his fedora and is called Indiana by Jerry and the gang a few times.

that is one of my favorite eppisodes. i love how he leans in close to the mummys sarcophagus and then opens the lid. only to belive he is cursed for looking at the mummy. fortunetly all you have to do is run around a building twice clockwise and knock on a door until someone lets you in to break the curse

My favorite was the 1996 "Law & Order" episode "Survivor" with Karen Allen.

It was about coin collectors who are pretty dull.
The writers added ancient treasure, Nazis, and modern-day murders.

I posted a writeup of the episode on Raven at:

I remember an episode of My Sister Sam where the neighbor/boyfriend was dressed in full safari garb and was told while pointing "the Temple of Doom is that way."

well its not a TV reference, but you Halo fans will appreciate this.

im not sure which episode it was, but in one of the "Master Chief sucks at Halo Campaign" episodes on youtube, when the chief is going into the Scarab to blow it up, they play Raiders March. it was pretty funny. i think it was Episode 3: Joyride, but im not sure....

Lost Ark Spotted On This Week's White Collar

Did anyone else spot the lost ark in the opening premiere episode of season 3 of White Collar last night? There was a scene about halfway through the episode where the character Mozzie was surrounded by stolen Nazi loot and in a couple of the long shots in the top left of the screen you could clearly see the lost ark sticking out of the top of an opened shipping crate complete with a swastika stenciled on its side. A nice nod to Indy by the set designers there

Saw a promo during another show but didn't see the ark, will be recording the next broadcast...thanks for the heads up.

Sounds like that show from the 70's...Sword of Justice.

The now cliche' Raiders bag switch makes an appearance in musical number for the Phineas and Ferb episode, "We Call It Maze."



Phineas's Satipo expression makes the scene, I think.

It's not exactly a TV show, but there's an Indy reference in WWE All Stars. It's in the D-Generation X: Path of Champions

http://youtu.be/VrUv6aMZXao

watch from around 2:20

On Leverage, in an episode called "The 15 Minutes Job", which aired July 10, 2011, there was a scene where the character Alec Hardison was in a filing room that looked like a small version of Hanger 51. He joked about the Ark of the Covenant being in this filing room.

In an episode of Leverage called "The Van Gogh Job", that aired the following week, on July 17, 2011, the character Sophie Devereaux made a comment about a painting. She said that it "Belongs in a museum". I'm not sure if this was an intentional Indy reference, but it is a popular Indy line and therefore could have been put in the script intentionally.

In "How I Met Your Mother" Marshall gifts Ted a fedora and a whip for his first day as a professor. Later in the episode Ted realizes he was teaching in the wrong classroom, running across the campus to the actual classroom, while the Raiders March is played.

And in one episode of "Friends" Ross dates a girl who is very impressed by him working-out:

Katie: I can tell you work out. A paleontologist who works out. You're like Indiana Jones.
Ross: (realizing) I am like Indiana Jones!

Weeds Reference To Indy

On Monday 08-01-2011 "Weeds" brought Heylia James back to the show.
She is out in the sticks growing marijuana of course and Nancy is trying to get her back as a hook-up. While doing her (Heylia) "chores" Nancy is following her through her field of plants and says to Heylia "These plants are beautiful" Heylia responds to her with "Why do you think the whole place rigged like an Indiana Jones movie" Referring to the booby traps they just walked through.

Well, it may look like I'm only watching one show on TV, and it's a children's cartoon. That is not necessarily true, but you have to give the show major points because I'm thinking someone on their staff is a big Indy fan.


(ends at 5:41)

I got the reference the second it started. My brother took until the second part of the reference to get it, but to be fair, I was laughing too hard during the first for him to hear the musical cue, which probably would have helped.

So I take it no one else watches Community? In last week's episode, "Remedial Chaos Theory," Abed has constructed a scale model of the rolling boulder scene from Raiders. It's really a case of the internet/DVD culture of viewing offering some fringe benefits for those who want to examine the production design. There's a catch later in the episode that may be intended as a "Bad dates" style move, even an instance of "Water...water...water!"

You can check it out here, if you're stateside. Indy makes his first appearance less than a minute in. (It's character comedy, so I'm not sure how much you'd get out of the entire episode without having followed the series - it's funny stuff, but it's of a certain sort - but it's a fine piece of television.)

Walking Dead season 2 premiere.

Creator Robert Kirkman has hinted that the character of Glenn was loosely based on Short Round. The Asian character who sports a "NY Giants" baseball cap in the comic and is always dodging the bad guys to get supplies. In the season opener, he is even called "Short Round" by Daryl.

In addition, in season one, there was the scene of the lead character, Rick Grimes, reaching back for his dropped hat ala Indy in TOD.

Again another Indy reference was made in the show Castle. They do that a lot I've noticed. The episode was called Eye of the Beholder. It aired on Oct. 17, 2011.

Richard Castle: So, you're kind of like the female Indiana Jones only without the hat and whip.

Serena Kaye: Well, without the hat.

While I really wish I could quit a show once I've started watching it, it's not really something I ever do, so...I still watch Family Guy.

The most recent episode, "Seashore Seashell Party" is a bottle episode wherein the family is holed up in the house during a hurricane. At one point, Peter more than a minute of time by singing the "opening chase music from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." We get both the actual score and Peter's singing along.

And, really, no one watches Community?

Community is one of the few shows I watch. Gilles tipped me off too, and I tweeted that episode clip. Interesting note, fans diagnosed Abed with Asperger Syndrome, so (according to the Wired interview) Dan Harmon did some research and took some online tests which came back positive for the spectrum. You can even detect a shift away from Jeff as the center of the show, who the creator originally most identified with.

I caught this while watching Good Eats with Alton Brown. It's the cover of his newest cook book, I wonder who he could be dressing as?
