Wouldn't it be ironic if while the television moguls are holding out on giving the writers their due slice of the pie that America realized it got along just fine without those programs! So, if you watched the video (if you didn't, scroll down and watch it) you know what the strike is all about: New media. Authors have had their contracts changed over the past few years, too, to include ebooks and internet sales.
Anyway, which shows do you miss the most? For me, of course, it's BONES! But, good for us--I think-- they've dug up another lost episode. Well, it wasn't really lost. This is the show they shelved last April when the Virginia Tech slayimgs too closely resembled college students in the program. That was sensitive of them, I thought. But now they're pulling this episode out -- I guess America is supposed to be desensitised by now, right? and get this: They haven't changed the murder plot; they've changed removed interaction between Angela and Hodgins because they are now engaged and weren't then, and supposedly that would have been weird to viewers.
Well, it's been so long since we've seen a new show, anything is going to be weird at this point. But don't think we get to see it this week -- they're holding it for sweeps in May. Fox put the last three pre-strike episodes on hold for sweeps, too. Don't ya love it? They'll put all the good new shows on opposite each other. Ah, well, just so I get my Brennan and Booth fix.
