    Well, the first one wasn’t that great, so I don’t mind waiting for the prequel.

    Agreed! Isn’t it amazing how much Hollywood relies on these ‘writers’? I mean, come on people! Just give them their cut. It is only fair. Get this….not for movies, but just normal, cable tv….re-runs. The writers have stopped writing new shows because the stations don’t want to give them their fair cut of the cash, right? Well, my freakin’ cable bill hasn’t gone down any!!!!!!

    Found out who Bindi is she is the little girl in Australia who lives on a Zoo her father was quite famous down under. Oh well still think the writers should get a break I miss my soap so can someone please tell them to hurry up and negotiate or else we will be watching crap re runs and crap movies.
