Hollywood writers strike over

Writers Guild of AmericaMembers of the Writers Guild of America have overwhelmingly voted (90%) to go back to work after a strike that lasted 100 days. The walkout was economically damaging to the studios, shutting down more than 60 shows, some of which will not return, such as The Bionic Woman, and costing the networks millions of advertising dollars. Sid Ganis, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, said: “I am ecstatic that the 80th Academy Awards presentation can now proceed full steam ahead.”

    They should show some of the old shows we used to watch, just to give our kids a good laugh. I bought the movie “It” the other day, remembering how scared it made me, thought my kids would enjoy it. We all settled in, ready for a good scare. Ended up having a really good laugh! Laughed our holes off!

    OMG!!! You remember!!! I had forgotten almost all of the movie, except that it scared the sh*t out of me, but my kids and I laughed to friggin hard! Watch it sometime, it’s hilarious!

    next on the agenda is the actors’ strike. what they have to complain about is beyond me. if actors had their pay based on the viewers’ level of satisfaction for their acting and the roles they play most of them would be standing in the welfare line (or back waiting tables)!

    something for us to look forward to!
