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

  • Both Jared and Jensen had to be written off of their respective shows on the WB in order to star in Supernatural. Jensen was playing the role of Lana Lang's boyfriend, Jason Tiegs, on Smallville and Jared was acting as Rory's disgruntled boyfriend, Dean Forester, on Gilmore Girls.
  • Creator Eric Kripke has been hailed by fans for his usage of driving classic rock in the soundtrack of the show. This was influenced by his midwest upbringing and the music he listened to with his father. Kripke says this was intentional as he claims he told WB execs to "shove their anemic pop music up their ass".
  • Three different 1967 Chevy Impalas are used as Dean and Sam's transportation.
  • Creator Eric Kripke is a stickler for keeping the show's fans happy and involved. He is known for being profuse with spoilers and visits online posting communities to keep in touch with the fans and see how they respond to the episodes.
  • While set all over the US, "Supernatural" is actually filmed in Vancouver, Canada not far from the Smallville set. Michael Rosenbaum and Tom Welling are known to visit with Jared and Jensen on their respective sets.
  • Many of Jared and Jensen's costars have commented on the close bond between the two actors. As creator Eric Kripke put it: "they really became brothers."
  • Because of the lack of reccurring characters, Jared and Jensen are known to work 18-hour days due to their large amount of screen-time.
  • Two different opening title sequences were created for the show and were never used.
