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

Behind the Scenes

The attractive divorcee Dorothy comes to the door dressed in pure 1970s fashion unthinkable in the 1950s: hairstyle, polyester bell bottom slacks, a blouse knotted up to expose the midriff.
