    Episodes 11 will be the season finale


    John Stewart and Colbert are off the air as of now. So is Saturday Night Live. It's reruns or replacement programming.

    WTF?????????????????????????????????????

    Can somebody explain to me what this "strike" is about, that's screwing up a whole LOT of people's lives?

    I know it's by the writer's guild, but over what, against whom?

    The usual, I would venture the guess. Writers not getting paid enough while they're being demanded more and more.

    Can't they get some scabs? There has to be a boatload of people willing to write and not be in the union.

    Did they film those Origins eps yet? Maybe we'll at least get 17 episodes rather than just 11. :(

    EDIT: Oops.. I just saw that other thread where they said Origins was shelved. Dangit! :mad:

    Truly a dark day. I wish they would just let the "last" episode of the show go on as planned, and just pick up when the strike is over, instead of tampering with the plot.

    It's about time, and actually GREAT timing for Heroes, who already have an ending built in mid-season... NBC actually is being redundant requiring a season ender, though I guess Heroes will shoot a different cliffhanger or something...

    But still, I'm not let down at all... lets get this writers strike over with, since, clearly, no one was trying to prevent it...

    Too bad most people have no idea what's going on, and they'll be like "Reruns? What the heck? What's wrong with TV nowadays?"

    This sucks. Sucks Sucks Sucks. What I don't get is why this is even going on. What will become of the Entertainment industry without the writers? Why arn't they giving them whatever they want?

    It's hollywood, greedy upper management type not succumbing to the lower people(the writers) demands. The article above said they only get 4 cents for every DVD sold and sometimes no health care

    Ahh greed the root of all evil.
    I could understand if they were doctors or policemen or teachers but this strike stinks of greed to me.
    Sure the writers do not get as much money and if they were say starving artists I could see the strike but they make quite a pretty penny compared to the average person and they just want a bigger slice of the pie and its not because they need it to survive its jealous greed plain and simple.

    They are no better than the production companies who drive movie prices up.

    ARE YOU F***ING KIDDING ME?!

    Smallville's gone down the s***er, Bionic Woman is nice but nothing to rave about, and Heroes is all I have left!

    They've stripped me of the one show REALLY worth watching! I need a f***ing wall to hit right now!

    Well there's still 5 weeks left(episode 11 is when the volume ends) so enjoy them while you can.

    I have to recheck the source to see if it really really is true. Apparently the same post was made at IMDB but the poster kept dodging the source.

    Sources, please? Numbers?

    Stop being so ignorant, please. You make yourself sound spoiled and make it seem like your parents didn't do their job right. Educate yourself, since you are on the internet after all: http://www.deadlinehollywooddaily.com/
