The writer’s strike is a mixed blessing. On one hand, it will give me an opportunity to catch-up on shows—on DVD—I may have missed and, on the other hand, it will shorten seasons on shows I really, really like, specifically Scrubs, which is in its final season.
The last time there was a lengthy writer’s strike was in the late-80s, which spawned the mindless reality-television movement. It’s still with us today and if the strike continues for a long-time (which is likely), expect more of it.
Hope the strike ends soon.
