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

  • One of the great things about the show is Jim's narration. -Joltman 08:08, 17 January 2008 (EST)
  • I really enjoy Jim's narration as well, but I feel that that's exactly what it is - narration, not acting. I feel the award has to go to someone who actually appears on-screen and "acts" on a show. PUK 04:30, 4 February 2008 (EST)
  • His narration is essential to the show and as such is a character on the show, justifying the nomination. -- HuskersRule 19:02, 7 February 2008 (EST)
  • Jim Dale's narration of the show is what drew me to it in the very beginning. To hear his voice at the beginning of each episode, as well as some of the more ridiculous things he has to say in the process of narrating such a quirky show, is always a joy. -- Mantene 13:29, 8 February 2008 (EST)

  • The second season of Prison Break made two very smart moves: One, it got the guys out of prison. Two, it finally gave Michael a villain as smart as he was in Fichtner. And with Fichtner's portrayal of the smart, calculating villain who is also tortured and has a much more nuanced motivation, I almost found myself rooting for him to capture Michael, even as he was shown doing things that were undeniably evil. Now with him in prison, I'm definitely rooting for him to escape way more than I care what happens to Michael, and a lot of that has to do with how much Fichtner brings to a very complex character. -- JCaesartalk 17:16, 18 January 2008 (EST)

  • Christopher Moltisanti's swan song really proved he was the true tragic hero of the instant classic series. Watching him struggle so hard to break out of his drug and alcohol addictions only to inevitably fall back into them for the stupidest of reasons was painful without being schmaltzy, and when he finally met his fate, it almost seemed like a mercy. -- JCaesartalk 18:44, 20 January 2008 (EST)

  • He was great as Doakes in the first season, suspecting Dexter of something and being a constant adversary to him, but he got even better in the second season, with actually finding out what Dexter really does when he's not working as a blood splatter analysist. His story in the second season and his eventual fate made it one of reasons the season was better than the first and one of my favorite shows on TV. -- HuskersRule 16:13, 14 February 2008 (EST)

  • Now we're talkin'. I proposed Knepper for the 2006 IVies, and I still think one of the greatest oversights on the final nomination list was leaving his name off it. In the subsequent seasons, he's delved even deeper into everything that was right with his performance in Season One. He continues to be a complete monster, and the show has no compunction about portraying him as such. But he's such a clever monster that it's actually fun to watch him be a murdering, raping, child molesting piece of scum. And when the show flashes back to his childhood or portrays him as conflicted about the beast inside him, he even becomes sympathetic, yet Knepper shows all facets of the character while making them all seem to fit together. A well-deserved and overdue nomination here. -- JCaesartalk 17:16, 18 January 2008 (EST)

  • Despite being arguably the biggest "name" on the show's cast (at least for us yanks) at the start of the show, Leonard's role as "straight man" has made his performance perhaps the easiest to overlook. Nonetheless, in season three, he really got the chance to prove why he was an award-winning actor already with his struggles between what was right for his friend vs. what his friend wanted. -- JCaesartalk 18:44, 20 January 2008 (EST)

  • Dominic's portrayal as Charlie on Lost has always been excellent, yet he is always overlooked in award shows. For 3 season's, Dom managed to not only portay Charlie as a quirky, funny guy with sarcastic jokes, but also pulled off some tremendously dramatic scenes. I think Dom did a great job in the last two episodes of season 3 - Charlie's death was one of the most powerful and emotional scenes ever, and Dom needs to be recognized for his great acting talents! Neil sa 04:52, 2 February 2008 (EST)
  • Totally agree! Dom has never been recognised for his wonderful work on Lost and deserves a nomination!

  • In 1963, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko found instant success with their new Spider-Man character, who was most appealing because he did what most comic book readers would do with newfound superpowers - he made wisecracks and goofed around. In Heroes, with Hiro Nakamura, the writers wisely went one step further by underscoring what a complete wish fulfillment superpowers would be for nerdy adolescent males. They made the perfect casting choice in Oka, who is just so thrilled to be a superhero just like the ones he's read about that his excitement is infectious, even to the audience, precisely as the character's thrill should be. Yet Oka can also handle the heavy dramatic stuff, too, when the time comes, and as a result, he has quickly established himself as the show's breakout star and moral center. -- JCaesartalk 18:52, 20 January 2008 (EST)

Even though he wasn't as present in the second season, he still was great as someone who was trying to regain his powers back and doing what he does best. -- HuskersRule 16:13, 14 February 2008 (EST)

  • Although the show started off great, took a dip as it struggled to get viewers and stay on the air and then came back up again just in time to lose that battle, one of the things that remained consistently strong throughout was Weber's performance. He managed to play a coldhearted businessman who was nonetheless sympathetic and a sort of comic relief with sarcastic wisecracks without ever once making it seem forced. -- JCaesartalk 18:44, 20 January 2008 (EST)
