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

Masters of Science Fiction is a science fiction anthology program that aired on ABC. It is by the creators of Masters of Horror and has a similar format to that, as each episode features a self-contained short film. The idea behind Masters of Science Fiction was to bring "some of the genres most popular and highly regarded short stories" to the little screen. The authors whom the stories were selected from were John Kessel, Robert Heinlein, Howard Fast, Walter Mosley, Robert Sheckley, and Harlan Ellison. Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking introduced each episode. Six episodes were produced, but only four aired.
