Cuz I ar a rightur tuu....

Pencils Down
I do believe they're w/r/i/t/e right, and that's both because I am a union maid until the day I die, and because it makes a lot of economic sense. The writers are the front lines...creative support staff, actors, everyone in the process other than the bean counters may well get frakked in their future negotiations if the writers don't win....

Many thanks to apostle_of_eris for these links:

1) Funny and pretty damned correct

2) Just Funny

Since I don't tend to watch much TV that doesn't involve the news, sports or simpsons reruns, I haven't been paying a lot of attention to the strike. I am impressed at the amount of money being thrown around, or not as the case may be.

The writer's have my sympathy... except for those that write for programs where folks who are supposed to be collecting and processing forensic evidence somehow end up driving the investigation... suspension of disbelief is one thing but that is a quantum leap too far for me. Next thing you know paramedics will be doing open heart surgery.... end rant. :-)

Wait - they don't do open heart surgery?


When it comes to procedurals, I have had to force my inner geek/realist to sit in a corner, its thumb in its mouth, for the shows I enjoy. I, too, know full well that William Peterson wouldn't be driving the Las Vegas Police Dept. detective division's cases, but he's such a good actor, I'll watch him. Same with a couple of the L&O franchises, although at least there we're dealing with full detectives. But I was born an SF and fantasy fan...I not only suspend both belief and disbelief, I take their badges, make sure the suspension is a full year, and snatch their guns away as well.
