Writers Strike Nearing End?


The strike of Hollywood writers could end as soon as Monday if the guild finds a proposed contract favorable. The guild is meeting this weekend to consider the proposal, and writers expressed a mix of optimism and skepticism.

While Hilary Winston, a 'My Name Is Earl' writer, said her feelings are "relief and optimism and excitement," Erik Oleson said he wouldn't "drink the Kool-Aid and accept a bad deal. I'd rather continue the strike ... what matters is the fine print."

If the guild shows support for the proposal by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, dozens of shows could return to production, putting thousands of entertainment employees back on the job.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
  I havn't noticed  
one bit of change to my routine since they striked. I say we let them strike indefinetely. Maybe they will just hire all new writers who are actually good.

It appears they've reached a tentative deal:

Now we can get some more crappy tv shows to watch!

  Without the writers  
we are doomed to a steady diet of reality television. RyanB if any of the studios tryed to hire scab labour across a picket line they'd probably find themselves black banned from so many directions that they would struggle to survive.

I know I noticed, almost all the show I watch are written by the guild, so all i've gotten to watch are hastily put together almost complete episodes with assloads of filler. So until this strike is over I probably wont watch anything but cartoons as they're actually worth watching instead of all the reality blah they always have on tv now.

because of this writers strike, i'm guessing it's a good thing i don't have tv? i haven't watched tv since thanksgiving day of last year...but i read about this writers strike alot. is there a difference in shows and all? or am i missing anything interesting?

A lot of the series' new seasons got postponed or cancelled, sucks for a 24 fan like me. There's much more reality crap on the air now.

Oh, Thank God!

The Office, more eps of Lost, Pushing Daisies, House, Chuck, etc etc etc...Finally will be back!

  The unions have fired their last bullet  
Studios will simply buy more programmes from none union writers from now on.

Expect the current crop of shows to finish, but dont expect them to replaced 1:1 with new writers guild shows.
