The Entertainment Strike

As far as I’m concerned, they can all stay out on strike. I understand it’s a hardship, people are being laid off. I get that. That part of it sucks. On the other hand, we, as a society, have been so narcotized by the entertainment media, that maybe this is just the thing we need to snap out of our lethargy.
If this strike lasts longer than three months, an entire season of television will end this December. No dramas. No comedies. No Daily Show. The strike will also prevent any pilots from being shot in the spring, so even if the strike is settled by then, you won’t see any new shows until the following January. As in 2009. Both the guild and the studios we are negotiating with do agree on one thing: this situation would be brutal.
If it goes on long enough, maybe, just maybe, we can all get our minds back. Maybe we can start talking and thinking again.
