STRIKE!

Finally the TV writers strike is over, just in time for the end of the season. In my life that means I can watch episodes of the Bionic Chick; however, despite the strike – still no shows?

What’s up with that?

Oh, well. I still got “Dr. Who”. I’ve been watching that since the 1960’s. What I don’t understand is why was there a hold on Dr. Who during the writing strike. The Dr. is made by the BBC.

Don’t they got writers in England? You don’t need good teeth to write.

Anyway, a show I hadn’t watched since the first season is, “Battlestar Galactica”. I probably would have watched a few years prior, but I just got TiVo. Let me share some of the literary genius I had a chance to witness.

Quotes from BattleStar Galactica:
“You don’t know what the ‘frack’ your talking about!”
“Just give me one ‘frackin’’ minute!”
“Your kidding? She’s your ‘frackin’’ mother?
“You take that back you ‘mother fracker’!”
“I’m gonna ‘frack’ your brains out!”

It’s one pretty good “frackin’” show! It’s the frackin’ best!

It’s on cable for “frack’s” sake, why not just come out with it? The special effects are quite…special, but as for the writing, “They can ‘frack’ my ‘fracking’ ‘frack’.”

Those are the only shows I watch, but on the radio they do feature excerpts from other lame TV shows. From what I hear, I don’t think I’m missing much.

Quotes from random TV shows:
“I love to dance…I just LOVE TO DANCE!”
“Just because I have big breasteges, it doesn’t mean I have magic powers over babies…”
“Hey look, I found a peanut!” – que laugh track.
“I’m your husbands doctor…I’m afraid he’s not feeling well.” – que ‘Oh, no’ music.
“It was Murder I tell ‘ya…MURDER!” – que ‘ta-da’ music.
“Hey Frank, you still have that 8-track of Tuba Music I gave you for Christmas?”

Remember, when the commercial people put together these ads, they’re looking for the best stuff they got…and that’s it.
