|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|
The First Episode was leaked early on the net, which seems to be a pattern with the big new shows lately. However, at first watch I was sure this show would never see the light of day, for one simple reason, it scared the hell out of me.
Now, normally TV turns all attempted horror stories a bit campy. This show doesnt stray there, they have the cynical humor, the cheesy oneliners, and heart jumping spookiness you would expect. It is just that it is all packaged up in a show that has all the impact of the horror movie greats... before hollywood technology passed them up and made them look fake. I think this show has a lot of potential.
I also think it wont last long, it will either get canceled, or be forced to mellow by a combination lack of maintainable storyline or 'parental groups'. It is sad, but so very much the truth.
Then again, what do I know? I liked 'Haunted', 'John Doe', and 'Dead like me'... apparently I cant pick a good show for the life of me! <smirk>
