    Default Writer's Strike

    Well, I don't really know all that much about it other than it is preventing me from watching some of mah favorite shows. That's very annoying ya know! And why hasn't anyone already started a thread about this? At first I was suprised, but then I remembered that the average active member age at this site has gone down. Anyway...

    What do you guys think about it?

    I hate the strike! Several of my favorite shows are affected by it, and it sucks! However, I can see where theyre coming from, as they dont get too many dazzling benefits, and from what my teacher explains, this is so that they can get more than two tickets at award shows and a raise. The raise I can see, but TICKETS?

    Gimmie back my House, damnit!!!

    I don't like the strike. But I think the reason they are gonna air Big Brother 9 in February and not in the summer like usual is probably due to the strike. So that's cool. I love Big Brother. Or should I say "oni san"?



    Bring me back!!!

    The strike may delay most shows, but the fact remains that Writers, who are one of the largest and most important contributers to shows receive much less than stellar pay and are virtually stepped on. This strike may be a pain in the butt for the public, but it should make things better in the long term.

    That is exactly right as it is the writers who create those funny one liners, dramatic scenes and all the interesting storylines. They should receive more compensation for their efforts, for without them the highly praised actors would have a tough time bringing a character to life. It is good to see many of the actors supporting the strike, though the majority may be union bound. Nonetheless, writers deserve what they are asking...or atleast enough to keep them happy so they keep House running.

    I agree. Writers hardly receive any profitable benefit. This video explains it quite well.

    This is exactly what annoys me most about the writers' strike: people who whine and moan about missing a TV show, despite why they're missing it.

    I completely agree. Writers do not receive nearly enough to compensate them for the work that they do. I was going to go into screen writing, but after I looked at their wages and compensation, I decided to go into something else first.

    I believe that they should get what they are requesting, so they can keep House going. I love House! ^^

    I'm completely with the writers on this. I believe if anything, this strike has shown just how imporant they are to television shows and networks, and seeing that, it's amazing that they are still having a hard to working out a deal to meet some rather simple, and much deserved, changes.

    Also, I want mah Season 3 of Heroes!

    As much as I miss certain shows, I still support the writer's strike. If it weren't for those writers, MOST of those shows we enjoy wouldn't even be enjoyable. Obviously. lol.

    Agreed wholeheartedly.

    I hate when writers are looked at as greedy for simply wanting the payout to be a little more balanced. Why should they be paid so much less than the rest of the staff when they provide an integral piece of the finished product?

    And one of the complaints I heard recently is that while shows are being made available online, writers aren't seeing any of those profits? Give me one good reason why they shouldn't.

    Ugh. As a writer, albeit amateur, myself, this disgusts me.

    I've stopped watching most scripted television, never really watch reality shows, and the only shows I watch on the internet are pirated, so honestly this doesn't affect MY television experience very much.

    However, that being said, not only do I think the writers' demands are perfectly reasonable, I think they deserve even more than what they're asking. However, I am not a writer, nor am I a reasonable person, so take that as you will.

    I approve of the strike, in so far as I care at all. I am not much of a TV person, and haven't been for years.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    So they're pirated. Doesn't change the fact that they were written by someone o.O

    One word: compromise.

    If the writers want to be paid more, they should get paid more. If the people in charge of them don't want to pay them as much as they want, but willing to pay them more, then they should discuss it. Both sides seem too stubborn to do anything about the problem, but they do need to compromise on the issue.
    Live. Love. Laugh.

    And one of the complaints I heard recently is that while shows are being made available online, writers aren't seeing any of those profits? Give me one good reason why they shouldn't.

    Ugh. As a writer, albeit amateur, myself, this disgusts me.
    Again, this is [as Ive been told from a teacher, who used to be a writer for...I think she said Will and Grace....] about getting:
    - a small raise.
    - more tickets to award shows they've written for [they already get 2 for free, apparently they want more than two]
    - and they also apparently have a grudge against the producers/directors changing their scripts.

    What really gets me is that this strike has gone on way longer than it should.
    However, did I EVER say that its the WRITERS who need to shut up and get back to work? NOPE. So I m a tad irritated that my post was taken that way.

    My view is that the studios are losing money, viewers are getting more than a bit irritated by it, and if something isn't done all we'll have left is reality shows. >_<
    I feel for the writers and I honestly believe the studios should pay them more, but the studios don't seem likely to give in. I feel if they drag this out long enough, they're going to find they've shot themselves in the foot as people are going to find other things to do besides watch television. Hopefully, reading a good book!

    Yes, it's a problem similar to the pay teachers get. They don't get paid nearly enough, but they can't really all go on strike now can they? Not for very long anyway. All their students would fail, and that would hurt a true teacher at heart.
