NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

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 tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

  • This episode was incredibly asinine due to several unrealistic plots, which do not correspond even if you account for the supernatural mechanics of this show. Paige receiving her police uniform, Phoebe getting her old job back under her new alias because Dex recommended her to Elise, Piper's whining about a normal life that she finally has and Leo getting locked out of the Manor with his elder son were all stupid and a waste of time in what could have been a decent episode had Brad Kern focused more on the demonic plotting. Additionally, this episode exhibits how much of a braggart Brad Kern is, based on this sudden use of (incorrect) grammatical rules and excessively wordy dialogue.
