Ugh, there better not be another damn strike. The last thing TV needs is MORE reality crap.

Well, at least GL will be safe. Now Ellen Wheeler can just put on a one-woman show and be done with it.

GET EM STEPH!!

Are you kidding me?

You know, I want to sympathize. I do. This is just getting out of hand, though.

It seems when one group gets something the other groups want it too and it's a cycle. Then there is peace until the cycle begins again. Hollywood just got out of a strike and now people can't put aside their differences? I mean, really? This just shows what is wrong with the world today. It's all about winning and screw all those who will be affected that have no stake in this or are innocent. They are causing an ugly situation that could be avoided by just coming together and not being so stubborn.

I pray something is done and/or that it does not last long. Unlike with writers, you can't keep going. This could cause far more damage so these people better get their acts together.

Ya know, this time, I must side with AFTRA. They signed a deal similar to the one signed by both the DGA and WGA. Why does SAG think the actors deserve more than both the writers and directors? Personally, it makes them look much more selfish and self-centered than they may want to appear to the public, especially if they strike over this and try to sabotage the AFTRA deal.

Oh come on! I am seriously now pissed off! I mean, can't they make an agreement? Are they really ready to make such new losses again?! Not one year after their previous strike losses?! I am so pissed! I hope they make an agreement, but it's clear this will stop production of tv shows for at least a little while...

My guess is that SAG would allow Soap actors to continue to work considering the state of soaps. Face it soaps employ and provide steady work for alot of actors.
I actually don't expect this at all. I think that SAG doesn't care what state the soaps are in. I would be shocked if they allowed soap actors to continue working if there is a strike...
Also keep in mind that primetime is hurting in a big way too. Their numbers aren't as low as soaps but they are steadily declining so why would soaps get a special deal?

I support the strike in principal but it seems to me that those who want it are those who can afford it. Those that really need the changes so that they can be paid for work distributed via the net and DVDs are those who haven't reached superstardom but ironically those are the ones who would be hurt the most. Seriously, does Tom Hanks need more money? Is he going to donate some of his cash to the actors who live from gig to gig?

I have no sympathy for anyone. These people are greedy. They're making enough money as is and I think it's ridiculous for them to go on strike.

Sorta. There are a lot of actors who literally live from gig to gig who would benefit from many of the things the unions want. Problem is that when the mega stars want the strike it just comes off as being greedy.

The only thing I like about reality shows is that they are fetured on E! Channel's The Soup :D
