Between this past year’s movie releases and the network prime time lineups, I feel absolutely zero sympathy for the striking Writers’ Guild. Seriously, when was the last time any of the movie studios or networks managed to come out with a season full of fresh, original concepts?
Well over half of the movies we’ve seen in the last year are simply reworked versions of flicks from my childhood or sequels to movies we intentionally skipped before.
And on television? It’s one reality show after another: Surivivor, American Idol, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and now… American Gladiator, which both qualifies as something out of my childhood and a reality show, too.
Which kind of makes me wonder just why on earth there’s a writer’s strike in the first place. Do they even HAVE writers in Hollywood anymore?
