I watched a recent episode of the new “Hawaii Five-0” (which I love), and an interesting question occurred to me. McGarrett and Danno were discussing how they both loved the old cop show “CHiPs” when they were kids, and debating about which of them was more like Erik Estrada, as opposed to the other other, less masculine and less famous dude.
That got me to wondering: If this show takes place in a universe where “CHiPs” is a television show from the 1970s, does it also take place in a universe where “Hawaii Five-O” is a television show from the 1960s? And if so, why don’t they acknowledge the similarity between their “reality” and that old TV show? And if not, why is one show included in their reality, but another is not?
I just think this needs to be addressed!!
