Writer’s Strike Almost Over

by Ed Lau on February 7, 2008

I say almost because it’s not finalized as far as I know but all parties have agreed on the deal and the freakin’ Writer’s Strike, which has deprived us of everything on TV for the last couple months, is finally all but over. Many believe that the upcoming Oscars and the canceled Golden Globes had a big impact on the decisions made but I really can’t see why. I know some people make a big fuss about awards shows but I can’t see why. Why watch four hours of boring speeches? I prefer to just read about them in the paper the next morning.

Anyways, let’s hope this means all our favorite shows like The Office, How I Met Your Mother and Heroes can return and we can all stop rotting our brains with all this god forsaken reality television and…ugh, Prison Break.

Not quite sure what the deal entails but the strike was over profit sharing on digital media such as…say…television show episodes downloaded off iTunes and the sort. Hopefully the cease-fire lasts so we never have to deal with this crap again.

They were saying that even if they do come back now we probably won’t see those new shows until Fall 2008.

Granted, I haven’t been heavily affected by the writer’s strike, being a Brit and all, but I feel sorry for the other people in TV production, having to work on all of these reality shows or being out of work because of these writers.
