According to Newsweek, the looming film and television writers strike will be a disaster of biblical proportiongs. "After about six weeks, all of America would start to feel it," said one television exec.
Heavens, no! Alas, what can be done to avert this tragedy? People would be stuck watching the same bilge over and over again. It will be like a permanent summer season. People might be forced to leave their couch and- gasp!- do something!
Really, with all the crud the writers produce over and over again, lousy ideas hashed, rehashed, reheated, warmed over and run through a blender, how much of a threat is a writers' strike? Who out there will miss it?
