If the writers’ guild does go on strike, it eventually could change television and movies. For TV, we could be looking at another month or two of shows, but after that, the scripts would run out and we’d be force fed more reality show crap, more gossip/newsmagazine shows like Extra, and basically just a ton of reasons to cancel your cable or dish package.
Unless you like sports.
Funny, if the writers do go on strike, the WWE wrestlers would be screwed. Who would write their scripts?
If the airwaves were filled with sports, I could stand it for a while. I record a bunch of shows and that allows me to keep up on shows I would normally never watch. That’s good and bad. The silver lining of the writer strike would be that in the worst case scenario, TV would be so intolerable to watch that We, The People, would have to get off our fat asses and go outside to do something finally (yeah State of Mississippi, I am talking to you).
I have no use for more crap reality shows or newsmagazines, so I, for one, am hoping that the sides agree and the writers do what they do best sooner rather than later. We wouldn’t want to get delayed on our stories you know. . .
