Writer's Strike and it's impact on the faithful audiences :( like MUA!


















"Johnny Depp movie hit by writer's strike" read the papers today. I was just having this conversation with JW yesterday regarding the possibility of not getting anymore of some of my favourite shows from DC by December if the strike by the Writers Guild of America is not settled soon. Christmas time will be reruns... what a horrible thought.

And it's all about money. Then somehow they will start to blame it on piracy.... and then blame it on the viewers who doesn't support them by buying pirated.

At least give us some good storyline and good acting, then only we will consider buying.

greedy people.
