Well, the Writers Guild of America are officially on strike from today. The late night talk shows will be the first to feel the pinch, then the day time soaps, and eventually the prime time dramas and comedies, which will run out of episodes by January/February. The studios have enough movie scripts stockpiled to last until next year.

This is still a near-disaster though, particularly for television, which was riding high up until now. The best work coming out of Hollywood for the past 6 years has been on TV, but if this strike lasts as long as the last one in 1988 (22 weeks at a cost of half a billion to the industry), that golden age could come to an end, never to be reclaimed. Sort it out people!
