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

Moonlighting is a detective comedy drama starring Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd. It was especially notable for its willful breaking of the Fourth wall, with the leads routinely speaking to camera. Many other creative touches gave the show an fresh, inventive feel - not least of which was having characters talking over each other, one of the first outings on TV drama for 'realistic' dialogue.
