Red Right Hand: MUNCH ON THIS
*He is not a secret agent. Not at all.

 

MUNCH ON THIS

There are space aliens in the same universe as Omar Little. The same FBI that wouldn't help McNulty close on 22 bodies, has an office on the basement where there have files on spooky goings-on. Files that start with an X. Let's not even mention what might happen if the Bluths went to B'mo.

There's been lots of cross-referencing between Homicide and The Wire. Some of those references drawing on real life. For instance, on Homicide, there was a character named Junior Bunk. On The Wire, Junior Bunk was mentioned in passing. However, the one referenced on The Wire might have been the real-life Junior Bunk, a figure in the history of Baltimore cri-- well, Baltimore.

Or maybe not.

Now, the biggest crossover you can get. John Munch on The Wire.

John Munch, the most-crossed-over character in all of television. Discounting any other scheme of connecting continuities and universes, he alone ties together a ton of series as happening in the same "world."

He's appeared on:
Homicide: Life on The Street
Law & Order
Law & Order: SVU
Law & Order: Trial By Jury
The X-Files
Arrested Development
The Beat
The Wire
Paris Enquêtes Criminelles
This directly connects him to Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Millennium and The Lone Gunmen. At least.

And I'm not even counting Sesame Street.

I tell you now, if I ever get the chance...if I ever manage to get on the staff of anything anywhere ever, I will do whatever I can in my meager power to get John Munch on that show.

And if he'd turned around in that bar...Meldrick?
