|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|
Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles
While the Starship Troopers movie seemed to studiously avoid treading even remotely close to the things depicted in author Robert Heinlein's novel Starship Troopers, the animated series Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles went in the complete other direction, doing at least some justice to the classic book.
Absorbing elements from both the movie (such as Diz Flores being a female love interest for protagonist Johnny Rico) and the book (powered armor suits, actually having a decent plot), the Roughneck cartoon never really took off and was put on "hiatus" before the end of the first season and in the middle of the Bug invasion of Earth, leaving viewers hanging as to how it would all end.
