YouTube has been an amazing resource for me—as a teacher of television. I especially like the way that it enables me to show historic television clips and TV from other countries. I also get as much fun as anybody out of watching amateur videos: the favorite in our house is watching the vast repertoire of amateur musical theatre classics either performed in school auditoriums or teen bedrooms. (Go ahead, I dare you, search under a favorite show tune and see what comes up.) Yet nothing on the Internet has in any way lessened my liking for watching dramatic television series. I agree with the commentators on YouTube who posted that Strike You! was so well done that it makes you want the strike to continue just to see what WGA writers can do when released from the shackles of TV formats. The WGA strike videos already have raised the bar for entertainment value on YouTube. Strike You! because it was so much more clever, better acted, satisfyingly paced, and laugh-out-loud funny than most of the stuff that is seen on the Internet. The WGA strike is also raising the bar for white collar labor organizing in important ways. As the video brilliantly satirizes, Hollywood is the last place on earth you would expect white collar professionals to take a stand against exploitation through the power of collective bargaining. The last place because – well, yes people in LA are self-absorbed and materialistic and generally more interested in their careers than in social struggle (unless the two can be made to dovetail). But the writers-- however much caricatured in the press--are taking real risks in this strike. By voting to strike in a business where thousands of aspirants are dying for a chance to take their place, by infuriating some segments of the Hollywood labor market who have less choice and power than the writers, and by exposing the economics of media conglomerate profiteering—all of which Strike You! brilliantly satirizes.
