Una teoria dimostra che tutte le serie TV americane esistono all’interno dello stesso universo


Anche se non vi siete mai accorti delle connessioni, c’è una teoria molto convincente per cui Friends, Breaking Bad, X-Files e praticamente qualsiasi altra serie TV americana esistono all’interno dello stesso universo. La teoria si chiama “The Tommy Westphall Universe” e prende il nome dalla rivelazione contenuta nel finale di “St. Elsewhere” secondo cui tutto lo spettacolo sarebbe stato un sogno del personaggio Westphall.

I miscugli tra elementi dell’universo di “St. Elsewhere” con quelli di altri show, e poi questi ultimi a loro volta con altri ancora, ha creato un’elaborata ragnatela che riassume la televisione americana. Keith Gow e Ash Crowe sono i due individui che hanno portato avanti questa teoria per oltre un decennio, è a loro che dobbiamo rendere grazie. Ecco un’illustrazione da loro realizzata in partnership con Huffington Post.

Gow e Crowe hanno elaborato un sistema di regole per cui uno show può o meno essere incluso nella lista, la regola fondamentale è che “non può essere incluso nessuno show che non presenti una continuità lineare logico-narrativa tra tutti gli episodi”. Ciò significa automaticamente che cartoni animati e i classici late night shows, sono esclusi. Le regole si fanno poi sempre più complesse, un altro esempio: nessuno show all’interno del quale è compresa l’esistenza di reality show può essere incluso.

Ecco la lista completa di show tra cui Gow e Crowe hanno trovato elementi di connessione:
