24, err...26

To my endless glee, fox will be airing a 2 hour 24 TV movie in the fall. The movie will be a season 7 prequel to bridge the gap between seasons 6 and 7. Season 7 officially starts January 2009.

    What!!! I gotta wait til 2009 now!!
    Stupid writers. But you know they were probably starving to death on the little money they make. (read last part with extreme sarcasm)

  2. Writers are pretty much always the lowest paid members of a creative team.

    The strike issue was about the producers not wanting to pay them for a dime in residuals for television shows/movies viewed on the internet, even though the studios made a few billion dollars last year on ad revenue for these shows.

    Also, when VHS first came out, writers took a 80% pay cut in their residuals cut to help boost the new market. 20+ years later, that pay cut was never given back; so they were also asking for a slightly higher residual percentage.

    So while the strike pissed me off as well; and my favorite shows got either cut short or postponed; If I was in there shoes, I'd have probably done the same thing.

    But alls well that ends well.
