I was really looking forward to the new season too, with Jack out of LA and away from CTU. Soulpatch-turned-baddie looked interesting too. Stupid FOX....

Will this end anytime soon or is this going to turn into a long term problem? Or will nobody but WGA and Producers know? Why can't the two sides just talk and come to some sort of logical compensation, or is it not that simple? So many questions and so few answers.

Maybe we will lose an entire season of TV (Now till at least May of 08'?) Boy I bet Fox and the American Idle people have one astronomical sized grin on their faces, if it's even possible for American Idle's ratings to go up more people will watch without any real competition on other networks... 8-o

You'd think there wasn't enough money to go around in the entertainment industry or something.

what's even dumber (or smart business practice i guess) is that they're fighting over how much royalites they should get off of internet content

Yeah, I think business practices haven't yet caught up with technology. I mean, how are they going to enforce anything about internet content? I truly see their point (in the music industry as well), but I think they all just need to rethink how they approach the business. Just forget the traditional delivery methods of CD. Make the first song of the next project free on the internet at the same time you go public with it, and have people pay to download more if they want, in whatever format they choose..or something.

The old methods just don't work anymore.
