What's it gonna take to stop the scabbers?

'Tis Thursday and I am therefore struck with the weekly conundrum: do I watch 30 Rock tonight and watch Ugly Betty online this weekend or do I watch Ugly Betty tonight and watch 30 Rock online this weekend?

But now there is the added complication of the writers' strike. In the interest of supporting the writers, shouldn't I make a statement to the network by avoiding the online content for which they don't get paid? Geez, I think I'm actually going to have to find a blank tape and use my VCR like some kind of caveman.

What have you brought us to, studio execs? I can't stand this mental torture! If this heinous VCR-use goes on for much longer, you're going to break me, and I'm going to go cross the picket lines to be a scab-writer. In fact, I'm already coming up with some great dialogue, ABC. Let me pitch it to you: "Oh my [Prehistorical Deity]! I can't believe people equate VCR use with cavemen! That is such a stereotype! You're such a racist! I totally use TiVo!"

Call me.

dammit, this is the one I knew!! Can I get a point for knowing but going to bed too early?

BTW I have the same conundrum! I missed the last half of Ugly Betty for a stellar 30 Rock episode, and now I want to know what happened with the wedding!

I don't damn the writers, but damn someone because I really need to go to ABC.com!!

Oh, the movie that sparked my love for Christian Bale.

I use my VCR all the time. I'm waiting for it to become hip and ironic.

The writer's strike may mean you can catch whichever one you miss in reruns. :)

Reruns are so unpredictable!

Did you watch 30 Rock? I heard it was the best episode ever. I've yet to watch.

gravatar srah - November 9, 2007 - 2:06 PM -

Nope, taped it. I hope it's good! I thought the rest of the "Green" NBC lineup last night felt a little flat, like they were trying to force the green storylines in (especially Scrubs and ER).

gravatar Elisabeth - November 9, 2007 - 5:22 PM -

30 Rock (and My Name is Earl) did really well with the whole Green theme. Scrubs and (I'm sorry, I'm trying to savor the last two episode) The Office fell a little flat.

But...me likey the ice cream cake.

gravatar srah - November 9, 2007 - 8:54 PM -

Yeah, The Office was good but not great... but I didn't feel like that was because of the green storyline, because the storyline wasn't all that green. Didn't see MNIE though!
