What shows have you gotten hooked on this year and what shows have fallen flat? I'll be disappointed if this affects Supernatural, cus I sense a cliffhanger coming.

Are they picketting with blank signs?

Given that this is a job that any gas station attendant could fill in for, at least on a week by week basis, I don't think they'll last long.

When mimes go on strike, do they start talking?

Are you freaking kidding me? You can't even write a decent three sentence promo for the efed...shit, most of your POSTS here don't stretch out to more than ten words total...and you're fucking sitting here saying that just ANYONE can be a writer? Seriously now?

It takes more than fingers and a keyboard to be a writer. Not that you'd have any idea about it, but it does.

Do the world a favor and go get a vasectomy.

Late.

The writers are morons, and went about this in the wrong way. They played their cards to early, and should've negoiated a little longer before going in to "strike mode" so early. They also backdowned on the DVD stand, that also makes them look weak. You'd think since they got a federal mediator, they would've went about this more prepared, especially since they have a good case, but they'll end up losing to the producers in the end.

Nick Saban makes more sense, then people might believe. When they did this a few years ago, a few X'd up college students cashed in big time, and it was way cheaper then paying your basic WGA, I don't see the writers getting really anything accomplished.

He didn't even mention anything about what the strike would get accomplished for the writers or how good their negotiation position is, but if you say he made sense then okay.

I'm saying that more ununionized writers will get work (IE; Reality shows/Game shows, Documentaries). So in retrospect what he said made sense, even if he didn't try to. Your average Pot head can come in and cash in with some bullshit, and the producer will put it on TV, as a fuck you to the Writers. So yeah, it's not thinking far fetched, when a guy says "Your typical stoner gas station cashier, can grab up his laptop, vido camera, and picture phone and end up being a succesful writer...Or a "Story editor".

The producers really need to just go ahead and pay these guys for DVD and New Media, The writers really are getting the shaft, I mean 4 centy ona dvd sale, and no revenue from Internet, I Phones, etc...

On the other hand, I really believe the writes are more in panic mode then they should be. The Producers are worried, but the writers are blowing their whole load in one day. The writers ar enot without fault either, the writing on tv has been awful for years, and I think the producers are riding with that. Most people just buy the seasonal dvd sets of a show (like me), because they don't want to sit through the filler that tv series throw you on a regular basis, that is usually because they can't keep the flow of a show going strong from the premier to the finale. So they phone in 5 shows, out of lets say, a 13 episode series. That to me is bullshit. Doesn't mean they shouldn't get paid for their work though, especially in a 30 billion dollar a year industry, where actors are getting a cool 1 mil a ep, and the writer is getting 300k a year.

All my pretten shows have been boring now... so no more... Gilmore Girls, or Disney channel... oh... and I quit watching "have a baby" shows.

I finished what I needed to know about "The Sheild" then quit watching it.

I mostly watched "Rescure Me" but, I think I missed the final.

"Big Love" was like an on demand marathon that lasted the course of a week and I had watched all the season.

"Now, I love going to bed with the sprout channel on. There is a show called "The very good-night show" and it has a girl talking with her friend, a stuffed star... and with the lightning bug they host a lineup of cartoons. Like "Jakeer! The Adventures of Piggley Winks"

Well, in mid August or something I decided that TV sucks the life out of you, cause while you could be do many things, you are sitting and watching things happen instead. And the bad part is most stuff is not even really happening...Although I must admit a lot is a metaphor for what the real world is like...

And my favorite things to watch is about history and nature... so I watch a lot of history channel... national geographic... and discoveryHD.
