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

After tapping Frank Burns for blood, Hawkeye and Trapper's patient develops complications. They believe Frank has hepatitis and try to keep Frank from operating.


The Show

At one point Hawkeye "narrates" an encounter between Frank and Hot Lips in the style of Pete Smith, who produced and narrated many humorous short films from the 1930s through the '50s.


Frank: I'm fine! I'm completely fine! The last thing I'm gonna give you two ghouls is any of my blood!
Hawkeye: Ghouls. That's a nice thing to call us vampires.
