No hard feelings even if it has an effect. Sometimes the unions need to take a stand.

My neighbor works on Nip/Tuck and they are on a day to day schedule with a shut down in sight.
At the same time I lost a couple of non union jobs that union guys where giving to me as they where busy... now they will have to do'em.
So it is already screwing with me...
I guess I will have a long Thanksgiving vacation, oh well.

My series 'Burn Notice' is supposed to start in January. I'm guessing that if the strike is still going on then it might mess with my start date??? The writer is also the executive producer (I wonder if that makes any difference?).
The writers have to make mortgage payments and car payments and private school payments just like we do. While I understand they want changes to their contract, I would also imagine they want to get to work just as much as everybody else does.
I'd be curious to know some actual facts about the 'rules' for a strike like this (something other than my random speculations).

If your EP is also a writer don't plan to go to work until it is over. Show runners are not allowed to write or even edit shows that are in the can, because that includes trimming of the written word. Sorry
MY show (SCRUBS) will finish out the week then we are screwed. I heard from other friends today that The Office, Desperate Housewives, Private Practice, Heroes and a number of others have already ceased production. Bummer.
Hoping this all ends soon. This sucks.

CSI pushed/postponed for a week. First time in 7 seasons.

...and the story about the guy who was run down and suffered a broken leg has been greatly exaggerated -- it was here at Sunset Gower and his foot was run over because the numbskull stuck it out infront of a moving car. It's amazing the spin our media puts on everything.

Hope all this non-sense is overwith quick so people can feed their families.

I see this going on here in Las Vegas with the local construction trade unions where they hire basic day laborers to picket businesses with signs that say "Shame on XYZ".

While I doubt the pay is very good they already know how to picket so we should be able to take care of that in no time.
