When I started Fallen Fluff, it was after I’d already noticed some pop culture references in the game. Some of them I had already taken screenshots of when I saw them, but some I had to go and find again (and created a third character whose sole purpose was to wander through the starting towns looking for fluff that I missed the first two times around). After starting the site, I got into the habit of randomly screenshotting (I’m still waiting for that verb to make it into Oxford dictionary) NPC and mission names that seemed familiar, even if I had no idea why.
While looking for the screenshots of the good Drs. House for the previous post, I ran across another interesting thing, this time a mission:
I might be reaching here (actually, I’s almost certainly reaching), but since Clinton FARM is all doctory in nature, and I’d already found one reference to a medical TV show, I figured this might be a little nod towards Grey’s Anatomy. I can’t really back that up, since aside from knowing that it has Patrick Dempsey (I hope I spelled that right) and Katherine Heigl, and the supporting actresses from Under the Tuscan Sun and Old School, I really don’t know much about the show.
So yeah, this “find” is slightly dubious. If anyone has actually seen the show or knows the cast, and has spotted something else related to it, let me know in the comments. Come to think of it, there is no shortage of medical shows to choose from, but except for House, I’ve never really watched them, so if you’ve spotted anything from Chicago Hope, E.R., scrubs, or anything like that, that’s great, too.
