Grey's Anatomy > Writers to Continue Strike; Episode 11 to Air Next Year > Comments Page 2
Hold on, so eppi 10 is airing this week and 11 is next year? What's up with that?
This strike has lasted long enough there are enough recorded vidioes to last forever, all the strikers are only pissing off veiwers and loosing fans, no one wants to watch the reruns the one show that they do follow. I will not be watching it if it takes to next year to air i have better things to do then wait for it and to check the websights to see if there will be anything good on tv.
I was checking my tivo this morning for all upcoming listings for Patrick Dempsey this week (which I check everyday) and I see where GA will air Crash into Me Part I on Tuesday night and Part II on Thursday night. Just thought I'd let everybody know.
(I love my tivo because it lets me know everything that will be televisied with PD that I would not necessarily know about)!!
Sorry for a little mistake (of course I hate Addek too). PD hated Addek.
PD have no interest for PP. I hated Addek and Addison and he's happy for her departure.
I interpret what PD was saying (in that interview on the above link), is that he wants the MerDer relationship to be settled one way or another. He implies that he has talked at length to Shonda, to either go forward or end it. I think he will be relieved if she goes either way. I know his original statements were always wanting MerDer together, but every time he discusses them he sounds really frustrated with the off and on thing, and wants it resolved.
Apparently from what he said about PP, there was conflict among the cast over Kate's leaving. Obviously they kept that pretty much in-house, which is how the other conflict should have been handled as well.
I'm sure many of us would love to see MerDer happily married and becoming parents together. I just don't think its realistic to expect bright and shiny from dark and twisty Shonda.
Don't know why PD didn't want to talk about PP. I've never really heard any of the cast talk about PP since KW left. So, I don't know what that was all about.
As far as PD having any influence over what happens to Mer/Der, I don't kow. I'm sure he and Ellen both have voiced their opinions, especially since this back and forth with them has been going on now 4 seasons. And PD did say that it seems that Shonda is listening more now to what people have to say about things. Lets just hope that she is really listening to how we all feel about the Mer/Der situation!! Get rid of ROSE and Lets get these two back together Shonda! You could have great storylines with them as a married couple and what fun that would be! Meredith getting pregnant and Derek becoming a father. That would be so much fun to watch that unfold with these two! Don't you think?
Okay, here's what I think: the writers deserve to be paid more, for the work they do and the work they are not very well recognized for. They also deserve a little slack from viewers. If we are SO hung up on the fact that we can't watch our shows, what respect do we have? But, the writers were given (what I think is) a good deal, which they could have accepted. So let's see what happens...!
For those of you who are calling the writers greedy, you'd realize they just want what they deserve if you knew what they were fighting over. The hottest topic is that the writers don't get a single penny for DVD sales, iTunes, and online airings of episodes (where ABC sells advertising to make a profit). They're being totally ripped off by the producers, and even the actors are behind them. If you keep up with the news you'll hear people talking about how a lot of the actors are picketing with the writers. I saw a clip of Jay Leno, who is REALLY affected because he's used to airing new shows every day, passing out donuts to the strikers outside NBC offices in CA.
as in early 2008 or next fall? Because that would REALLY suck.
And To Kathy, i read you hyperlink, and i hope McDreamy doesn't leave, after burke's leaving it's changed and if McDreamy leaves then i am not going to watch Grey's.....COME ON GREY'S! SHESH!
Why the hell did they air the blumin series if they were going to take a break? i mean, whats the point, and they only write it, if they were bothered they shouldn't write it in the first place, now i'm totally gutted and considering not even watching it, i am a total fan, and i'm addicted to all the action but why should i as a fan wait a year to watch flamin episodes? its stupid! who is with me?
Kathy, thks for the link, but, i am kind of puzzled as to Why dempsey doesnt want to talk about PP. i mean did i miss something? As for merder r/ship i dont think even dempsey has the power to make Shonda do what she doesnt want to do. He like all of us is just hoping something will be done.
read this article where someone interviewed PD. It states again that he hopes that the dynamic between Mer/Der moves forward when filming starts back after the strike ends! Always like to hear PD say he wants Mer/Der together and we've read and heard him say that alot. He wants their relationship to move forward as much as we do!
Don't you agree??
It just seems like the writers are being greedy, the last proposal gave them everything the originally asked for. In the mist of them being so greedy, our favorite shows are going down the drains. Grey's can't handle something like this, its ratings are already suffering. I just think its really sad that they can't be mature adults and come up with something. Right now, the writers look like money hungry asses.
I agree with Kathy. I was really looking forward to seeing more new episodes sooner. I hope they resolve this sooner rather than later.
This really is a HUGE disappointment! All we can do is hope and pray that things get resolved soon! I feel so sorry for the crew members that will not get paid until production starts back. When they met this week at least they did come up with a tentative agreement even though it was shot down according to the article above, so lets hope when they meet again on Tuesday of next week that another proposal will be given to the writers and an agreement will be made! As long as something is decided before the first of the year, I'd feel better about the season reopening but the longer it goes through to 2008, it makes me think we'll have to wait until Sept. for the new season to begin. Lets really hope that doesn't happen!
And another thing, I really wish they would not hold off in showing episode 11! I know we always have reruns during the holidays but with everything going on with the strike and knowing we only have (1) episode left after this week...that just doesn't seem fair to
i thought this was nearing a close?!?!?! wtf!?!? i mean alright already the writers made there point and they got a great offer to come back and now what they're not!!!! omg and now its going to ruin all the shows for the season!!! wtf!!!
WTF! come on people what is going on let's make a deal.
Crap, so we still have to wait sooo long :(
They will loose fans too because of all this chaotic things!
NEXT YEAR? Seriously? OMG this is so sad
my heart goes out to the crew who, like patrick dempsey said, live from paycheck to paycheck. it's going to be a tough christmas for them!
mellowbela ITA with you!
i rekon they are just being greedy i mean i would pick up a pen and write for what they get. geeze
JUST ACCEPT AN OFFER and be grateful......think about all the little kids in africa who die everyyear be freaking grateful
