On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

A TV infomercial producer is done in with one of his own products, a well-thrown Ginsu-type knife squarely in his chest. Amos and Peter go shopping for suspects and come up with several infomercial 'stars', including a beautiful fitness expert, a former astronaut and an ex-cop who shills a combination purse/self-defense weapon. Peter must also deflect a knife to Amos's heart when his old flame, novelist Barbara Manchester, proposes to him.
