    I've always wished there was a Doctor Who/Star Trek universe crossover episode. I think that would have been fun.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a Burn Notice/White Collar crossover episode.

    Or maybe Raylan Givens on an episode of The Wire.

    The Mentalist/Psych.
    Since they're both in Miami, Dexter/Burn Notice.
    obligatory: Firefly/anything at all.

    Man do I love a good crossover... they almost never done right though. In my opinion Buffy and Angel handled their interweaving universes the best, but I guess a lot of that has to do with one of them actually spinning off another, so it makes sense. "The Practice" crossing over with "Boston Public" didn't really make sense. "Third Watch" and that "Medical Investigation" show made a little sense, but it wasn't written well.

    My brain is shot so I can't think of any crossovers I'd like to see. I'm sure I'll have something at some point.

    I'm not usually a big fan of crossovers. They almost ALWAYS feel blatantly gimmicky, and are rarely done well. Plus, you're taking all the history and style of one show and jamming it into another's, and that rarely ends well.

    The few crossovers I've enjoyed are older episodes/shows. One was the X-Files/Cops crossover, although that wasn't really a "crossover" per se... it was just X-Files filmed like a Cops episode.

    It also works well when you crossover between shows that are clearly already within the same universe and are the same style of show, like Buffy/Angel, or even going further back, Golden Girls/Empty Nest (the houses in the two shows were supposedly next door to each other).

    I honestly can't think of any crossovers I'd like to see going forward.

    Yeah, this one makes a lot of sense to me. I'm actually pretty psyched about seeing this, even though we stopped watching the original CSI a long time ago. I'm also really loving The Defenders, much to my surprise.

    We love The Defenders...sadly, TVBytheNumbers lists them as "certain to be canceled by May".

    :(

    I wanted a Justified/Burn Notice cross-over when Raylan goes back to Miami on the hunt for wanted fugitive Michael Westin.

    I mean, it would be easy enough to do.....5-O team is solving a case and they need a PI to add to the team to solve it. How tough is that. Heck, they could add the plot line int to any of the eps.....

    For that matter, make him a recurring character (yeah, I know...Blue Bloods).

    I don't know, I thought it was pretty funny.

    "He has lipstick on who-who".

    And the Catherine Willows doppleganger was, well, a ddoppleganger.

    Since I've never watched CSI in my life, I didn't get all of the inside jokes.

    So to me, it sucked. :)

    I don't remember a crossover between The Practice and Boston Public. I thought Boston Public was a spin-off of The Practice after it ended, or very close to that time. Just so they could make a show with James Spader and Denny Crane. ;)

    The true crossover was Alley McBeal and The Practice. That even crossed over between networks and both shows.
