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 --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

Everyone in Mayberry is excited when a Wild West show comes to town. Everyone likes the show and its promoter Fred Gibson but the real draw is Clarence Earp Dempsey, a direct descendant of the legendary U.S. Marshall, Wyatt Earp. The show begins to have a negative impact on Opie and some of his friends however when they take some of shows slogans - like the best man is a fighting man - just a little too much to heart. Andy tries to get Gibson to tone it down but Dempsey ends up challenging him to a duel. Andy has to do some quick thinking to settle it all amicably.
