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

Trivia

Behind the Scenes

  • Captain Dobey: In the pilot, Starky and Hutch's superior, Captain Dobey, was played by Richard Ward. For the series, Bernie Hamilton would take up the role.

Allusions and References

  • The Dunciad: The lines Zane quotes out of a book are the conclusion of Alexander Pope's satirical poem The Dunciad, although Zane wrongly attributes them to Voltaire.
Thy hand, Great Anarch! lets the curtain fall
And Universal Darkness buries All.
