I must digress for a moment to just say that as a Whedonverse & Dead Like Me Fan, I had big hopes for Wonderfalls and 1.5 episodes in I already think it majorly sucks that FOX gave it the Friday-Night-Death-Slot sendoff.
Anyhow, Pink Flamingoes. So I'm watching and Jaye says something about her sister and dad going to have waffles. That's got to be a Dead Like Me reference, and since I know that particular chronology goes Bryan Fuller creates Dead Like Me, then leaves/is forced out, and goes on to create Wonderfalls. So that one was obvious.
My main question is on the Tim Minear side of things. Where does Wonderfalls fall within the seasons of Angel & Firefly? At one point Jaye says the universe has it's hand up her ass and she is its puppet. "Smile Time" reference? And it may be a coincidence of word choice, but shortly afterwards, Mahandra says she will help with the shindig. Is that a "Shindig" reference?
Lastly, was anyone from Veronica Mars involved with Wonderfalls? At the bar while they are setting up for the shindig the song that is the VM theme is playing in the background, and I am firmly certain that Wonderfalls wrapped before Mars premiered...
