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

Allusions and References

It's no surprise that Kevin McCarthy would turn up as a guest star on The Invaders...after all, a decade before, he played a character very similar to David Vincent in the classic film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers".
