I don't know about you but i am very mad about this writers strike, i am all for fair pay but why can't they just come to an agreement... i miss my shows. Anyone have an opinon/ comment?
You might like this funny article about the consequences of the writers strike:
They can't come to an agreement because the AMPTP keeps walking away. They expect the WGA to cave in with almost nothing like they did in the 80's. That's one of the reasons the WGA is in this mess. Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? No.
In the 1980's, writers took a TEMPORARY 80 percent cut on residuals when home video was just starting out in order to help grow that "new media" and then never got it back. It was "let's see if VHS actually works." Well, it did and now there's DVD's and internet downloads and all kinds of other new media. Who could have imagined watching movies on an iPod? But writers don't get paid for internet downloads or anything else new media - all they get is FOUR cents when you buy a DVD. That doesn't sound like greed to me.
And by the way, I kind of think the writer should get more than the dude gets for burning the film ONTO the stinking disk.
You know how much writers from Gilligan's Island, Mr. Ed and I Love Lucy and such shows have made from all the millions they've earned in syndication, DVD's, etc in dozens of languages all over the world? NOTHING. Because they didn't have a union fighting for it at the time it was written.
Writers are fighting now because if they don't, when Heroes becomes the new media I Love Lucy of tomorrow and studios are still making money off work the writers get NOTHING for, the writers of Heroes will be wondering why their union didn't have the foresight to stand up for them when the had the opportunity.
I live in LA and know dozens of TV/movie writers.
They are the laziest greediest do-nothing whiners in the world.
That would be ok if there work wasn't so terrible.
They want more money for less work regardless of whether their shows make money or not.
Say goodbye to your "shows", the producers won't give the writers a dime.
I am with you on this one. I can't believe that they can't come to an agreement.
Trying to put food on the plate for their families? I think they were already making plenty of money to do that.
What writer's strike?
Should I be worried?
yes you should cuse them out for not comeing to an agreement
doesn't bother me.
i never watch those shows
