With the assistance of Christina Applegate, Samantha Who? writer Bob Kushell made this video to help the scribes survive their wedded bliss during the WGA strike.

This video is insulting. Bob’s laughter at the end over the concept that “female comedy writers” exist is a lame joke at best. Maybe in the sequel, Bob will laugh when told that women can be journalists, too. Oh, and don’t get him started about a black man and a woman running for president of the United States. That’s just too crazy!!!!
You have NO idea how accurate this film is. This is a goddam documentary.
While this may be the stereotypical, humorous representation of the married strikers plight, I have to present the other side of this story. I have been on the picket line with my husband as much as I can and what I have found is that many, many married, partner and significant other couples are on the line together. It is a testament to those vows we take – for richer or poorer (right now we are all poorer) and to those who make commitments to stay together through the best and worst of times. As Patric Verrone says, “We are all in this together.”
Strike-video shark, you have been jumped. Though that may already have happened with Writer Boi.
Agreed. It’s starting to look like writers are doing videos to get attention for themselves, not the cause. This video is the prime example. I don’t give a shit about your marriage, Bob. I give a shit about this strike ending asap so I can pay my rent.
