Unfortunately, this is what the writers had to wait around for . . . no more new shows so finally the public will start getting upset, quit watching, advertisors get mad and pull commercials, yaddah, yaddah, yaddah!!!

Even if they start writing right away, then they've got to get to filming and editting . . . I think it's going to be awhile!!!

No, I am right there with you on this :lol:

Most all of my favorite shows have aired, or will be airing, the very last episode they had in the can before the strike started <_<

All I have left to look forward to is a few eps of Lost when it starts at the end of Jan.

I heard this might drag on, they were saying there might not be any new TV for the fall 2008 season :o

Yep Julie--me too :) It will only be 8 episodes, they originally planned to air 16 straight--I was really looking forward to that--but will take what I can get at this point. :P

I do miss a couple shows like Grey's and Two and a Half Men, but really, not as much as I thought I would.

I'm getting addicted to "House Hunters" on HGTV :ph34r:

One of my friends uncle works in the industry and he said that all the writers HAVE the scripts but they won't sell them because the strike, obviously. But, he said they think it's going to go until September!!!! :o AHHH!!!! I miss all my shows too!

I'm kind of on the side of the writers...they get the really really bad end of the deal in Hollywood (really, really bad), but I do miss some shows.

I found myself watching Dance Wars: Bruno vs. Carrie Anne the other night :ph34r:

I think Grey's was new last week, but it was sooooo bad! <_<

There are some great shows on the Travel Channel though. Anybody else watch Anthony Bourdain?

Ahhh I envy you folks who have cable. We live out in the country where there is no possible way of even getting cable!!! We have an antenna.

My dad loves 2 & 1/2 men!! It's a pretty funny show.

I too have to confess...I watched part of the biggest looser the other night :ph34r: ....I was just happy to have something that I hadn't seen before!!! ha :lol:

I miss :

Grey's Anatomy

Men in Trees

Desperate Housewives

Brothers and Sisters

Two and a half men

Friday Night Lights

I don't get to watch them all regularly, but I guess regularly enough that I am missing them!!

I feel the worst for the other people, like the folks who work on the set who aren't going to benifit at all from the strike (make-up artists, KRAFT Service workers, janitors etc). Those are the folks who I worry about. Most probably live paycheck to paycheck to begin with, and now they have NO work!!

Well, Grey's SUCKS these days..... <_<

But I REALLY miss Friday Night Lights!

I'm not allowed to have expanded cable. :ph34r: Self- imposed rule......I would do NOTHING but watch HGTV, any kind of ridiculous "reality show," the Food Channel, History Channel.....and then how would I have time to waste time chat with my friends here? :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is not a criticism of the shows you like to watch as they are probably on after I go to sleep anyways and I don't watch them & don't know what they are all about..but I have basically stopped watching TV years ago as nothing interested me. So I am not missing much I feel. I don't watch the reality or dancing or Idol shows anyway. Oh, there is one show I do watch so I guess the strike will affect me.... I like to watch Monk on USA cable. Oh well.

Honestly, I don't do too much of the reality TV either, I watch the American Idol, but this will only be the 2nd year, we do watch wife swap and sometimes Super Nanny.

We perfer shows which are on A&E and TLC like Ice Road Truckers and Little People Big World....our new favorite is Parking Wars....boy that is funny. Those are reality shows but I think they are a different type of reality show.

Yes, the writers strike is creating the ULTIMATE cliff hanger!!

I am wondering also what is the deal with Rebecca's father....was it William or is it this new writer/drifter type guy....hummmm. Also, why is she so embarassed of him and not want him near her. Did something ugly happen there or is it just because he is Rebecca's dad??

I also can't believe that now Robert doesn't want to have a baby......is he scared because of the miscarriage or what is his deal??

On to Friday Night Lights............geesh the whole kicking the sister out deal was pretty harsh!!!

I miss my shows too! :( I don't understand how the strike can continue when George Clooney offered to lock himself in a room with the writers and executives until a resolution is reached. I would not turn down that offer! :lol:

:lol::lol::lol: I know! What's wrong with them? LOL

Did anybody watch Grey's last night? I know it was a re-run, but I fell asleep the first time I tried watching that episode, and I kind of wanted to know if the woodpecker guy was going to live :lol: ...so....I made a second attempt at watching it. Um...I fell asleep again! :blink:

Is there something wrong with me or was that just a really boring episode? :unsure::lol: Did the guy live? What did the gentlemen's evening turn out to be? LOL. Anybody know? :lol:

Sorry Mango--I turned it off after the last new "Ugly Betty" for a while. I know last week, they repeated Thursday's episode of Grey's on Friday night....

Ok--I just checked ahead on TiVo--it's on again tonight at 8 Eastern. I never saw that one, so I think I'll watch it :D

I am watching Life after People on the history channel, very interesting. They were just talking about Chernobyl the place in the USSR which had the Nuclear Accident. This part sent chills down my spine. TMI is in our backyard, I can see it on my way to work...and I live in the 10 mile radius. Yikes!

I couldn't watch past the first 15 minutes of that show. Didn't do a thing for me.

I prefer the comedies on CBS on Monday nights (although they're all repeats now <_< ). My guilty pleasure at the moment is "Big Bang Theory".....it cracks me up :ph34r: I actully know a few people like that :lol:

I'm actually a huge fan of Dancing With the Stars, but this I just haven't been able to get in to.

What is Big Bang Theory?? I don't even recognize that......

DWTS is starting up again in March! :D Can't wait!!!

Big Bang is on right before Two and a Half Men--it's about geeks who live ascoss the hall from a cute, perky, but kinda dumb blonde. The geeks are so OC that it just makes me laugh.

I can't wait either :D:D:D

It's always exciting to find out who the Star dancers will be. I would think they will be announcing them soon, they start training 6 weeks before the first show I think.

Exciting! :lol:

OH, ok. I know the show you are talking about, with the actress who played the daughter on 8 Simple Rules and that guy that was on Roseanne. I just didn't know the name of the show, looks cute :)

    Been doing it for a week now, I am trying doctors best and got a deal on some from Vitacost both in capsule form to avoid the crap they put in the other forms I found it available. I am actually using both one in the morning one in the afternoon. Might not work for everyone but I am seeing why many bodybuilders swear by it in the gym. I just figured if it might help people that get muscle fatigue easily with daily life. 
    For what it's worth, I've noticed that if it's just iodine I will not get any other symptoms. In addition to the rash, I typically get GI symptoms, fatigue, and sometimes joint swelling when I ingest gluten. I don't typically eat seafood or stuff with lots of iodized salt, but sometimes I do on special occasions knowing that there will be some relatively minor consequences. Typically this is because I am traveling - canned tuna, salty snacks, jerky etc. are often the only nutritionally bala
While a Celiac reaction requires actual consumption of gluten, I take no risks.  Sunscreen might melt into my mouth a long bike trip or I could bite a nail.   I use CeraVe lotion for my face.  In winter, I use their heavier cream.  I also use the Equate “CeraVe” version by Walmart which is made in Canada.  I use a lot of sunscreen.  I buy Equate which does not contain gluten, is recommended by Consumer reports and is inexpensive.  Do not use CeraVe sunscreen.  For some reason they changed t
