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


Dorama

From The TV IV
Jump to: navigation, search

Dorama is the term for a Japanese dramatic program. Because of the inherent linguistic differences of Japanese from English, the word "drama" is pronounced with the extra syllable added.

The Japanese television year is generally broken up into three month periods, meaning a new season or series roughly four times a year. As a result, many dorama programs will have only 12 episodes total.
