    Heroes.

    And though Lost comes back this week, they filmed only 1/2 of the episodes there were going to do (8 of 16). And now that the show has locked in the total of seasons left, the loss of these remaining episodes is a big blow and the producers/writers are going to have to change their plan a bit. I still hope the strike is resolved and some of the remaining episodes of our favorite shows can still be produced.

    I was going to mention Lost also, but they are going to show the first 8 episodes starting this Thursday. I hope they resolve this strike soon. I hoped that when the directors settled last week that it would speed things up with the writers!

    I read that most of the shows have about half their season completed, and if they can resolve the strike by mid-February, there is every chance that they can film the rest of their seasons quite comfortably.

    Funny thing about all this is that here in Australia, the networks have started to panic and are now commissioning locally produced shows, rather than the US imports we get so many of. This is a good thing for our industry. Unfortunately, there is some talk going around that the Aussie writers may start their own strike in support of the US guys.

    There is a writers strike? icon_eek.gif

    I really don't watch a lot of television to be honest. Sick of reality shows, I guess that genre is their filler until the strike is over.

    Mike: you are going to go insane when Lost goes on hiatus. Apparently the 8th ep ends in such a way as to really drive fans nuts. I am really looking forward to season 4. That last scene in Season 3 made me say "Holy Shit!" out loud. Twice.

    I have no idea when 24 will be back, I am in one of the first 7 episodes they filmed. Even though last season was pretty bad, it is one of the best things on TV.

    I miss The Office, since most of the cast is also on the writing staff it was the first show to shut down. NBC reran the one last night where Michael makes the Dunder Mifflin commercial.

    30 Rock is just genius, the last ep that had everybody singing "Midnight Train to Georgia" was inspired lunacy. If the strike goes on much longer I really believe "Milf Island" or "America's Next Top Pirate" could become real shows.

    Friday Night Lights is still running new eps, apparently they got 15 of them done.

    The sad thing about the strike is the ratings for all the reality crap the networks have foisted on the public haven't been all that bad. There is a huge amount of crap on TV but if you look, there are some really terrific shows that are smart, well written and well acted.

    They should bring in scabs and fire the lot of them. I don't miss anything they put out.

    Thank god South Park isn't unionized (though I do hope their writers are getting treated well). But Heroes and (when the time comes) Terminator. I think Avatar the Last Airbender is also being affected but not sure. New episodes are coming out all over the world but the US so I dunno what's going on with that.

    I really don't miss any of them, even my favorite shows. I've enjoyed not watching television. I've read more, seen more great movies, and spent more time with my friends. I'm not really excited for the strike to end, except for the people who need the steady work. I do hope it causes the executives to have more respect for writers.
