    I am paying for cable but I am going to get crap for a few months. Shouldn’t we get some kind of discount? I guess I’ll catch up on TV box sets…ugg. There is always Netflix. *snatching at straws*

  • studios and producers should stop being GREEDY

  • Jay

    Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Crying*

  • Josh Emerson

    They need to give the writers the money they deserve or they’re going to lose millions of dollars. And viewers. I just don’t get it. Ratings are already down so much, what do they think a strike will do? They’ll lose more money from that than they will if they just cough up the money.

    It really sucks that Heroes is actually prepping a season finale. What happens if they air it and then the strike ends soon after?

    Will Dexter be affected by the strike ?

  • Linda B.

    Dexter ends its season in December, so i doubt it will be affected. Only way it could be affected is if the strike goes on for months and months and there is a delay in getting season 3 off the ground.
