Strike! Strike! Strike!
In case you have missed the news, the writers of our TV shows and movies our are on strike. This means that there are no new scripts being written until the writers can make a deal with the networks and production companies.
This happens every few years when the SAG/AFTRA union contracts run out. Writers are not happy with the compensation they’re receiving and are on strike until a better deal comes along. This has happened many times.
Things have changed in LaLa Land
Things have certainly changed in Hollywood over the past decade or so. With the advent of streaming and the proliferation of outlets in need of creative work such as what writers provide. The demand has never been bigger but unfortunately according to the writers the compensation has never been worse.
Who knows how long this one will last?
These drugs usually happen in the summer and will carry on into the fall season when networks typically want to have their new shows on. So it remains to be seen if a deal can be worked out before September. In the meantime, maybe it’s time to look back at some of TVs greatest shows from the 80s and 90s that are certainly worth another rewatch. Of course as they say in TV if you’ve never seen it it’s not a rerun to you.
Let’s go back to the heyday of sitcoms and dramas
Of course everybody thinks their era would be the golden age of television so let’s focus on the 80s and 90s, you could argue that this was the best time for sitcoms. It was also a great time for TV dramas.
It would be nearly impossible to come up with a list of the so-called best but the mission here is to focus on nine shows that maybe you have seen or maybe you haven’t but either way definitely worth your eye’s time.
