Thank god! Heroes has been disappointing, Bionic Woman is laughably bad, Grey's Anatomy
has been underwhelming, but relatively enjoyable. Honestly, the most enjoyable show I have been watching are Damages (whose season is now complete) and ER which is consistently involving after all these days. Now that Survivor: China is going into the merge I may check that out for as many shirtless shots of African American muscle boy James as I can get, but besides that the TV season has been bleak.
That may be why the screenwriters guild has authorized a strike, which may happen very soon after the stroke of midnight on Halloween, Wednesday October 31. This will be the first Hollywood work stoppage since 1988 whivch lasted for 5 months and severelydamaged several televisions shows and resulted in a lot of "schlocky" movies being in theaters.
Stay tuned, because if the writers do strike, our bad television season will only get much much worse. Games shows and reality shows, all the time.
