    Wow is all I can say.

    "Four days inside and four days out?" Oh this isn't going to work ...

    "Joel thinks he is responsible for the success of shows on AMC, and not the creators," This is why I have no respect for Hollywood ...

    This just sucks.

    Yeah, there was a lot of info in those links that you think would make the shareholders rise up and go all French Revolution on those in charge...but they won't. Simply because AMC is making money. They do not realize that quality=longevity=long term profit. So AMC cleans up on Walking Dead while riding the show into the ground creatively. HBO should be watching this story closely because there was a lot of talk from the Game of Thrones/Boardwalk Empire folks about diminished budgets. I have to point again to Fx. Always trying new things and they are willing to give a second chance to a show in order to let it grow an audience. Archer's ratings first season were not-so-good, yet fan word of mouth and critical raves bought it a second season. Now Fx cannot have enough Archer. Even shows they could not save(Terriers/Light's out...r.i.p.) the guy in charge did state of the union type apologies to the fans which came off very sincere. Say what you want, but thank God LOST snuck thru the cracks. TV does not reward creative ideas. There are at least 2 fairytale shows coming on...and I refuse to watch them until they get a second season. Which they won't. TV sucks...a simple rule of thumb to live by.

    Jaysus I am in a ranting mood today.

    Not only would the show get a lower budget, but AMC also decided that "Walking Dead" would no longer reap the benefit of a 30 percent tax credit per episode that came with filming in Georgia. Now the network was going to hold on to that money.
    **** you, AMC!

    Despite the show's success, AMC stuck to its original position on the second-season budget. When those involved with the show protested that the network was taking chances with its biggest hit, AMC's head of original programming, Joel Stillerman, is said to have declared, "Ratings have no bearing on this conversation."
    **** you, Joel Stillerman!

    Darabont was editing the episode in an effort to fix it but by then, an insider believes, AMC was looking for a pretext. "Joel thinks he is responsible for the success of shows on AMC, and not the creators," this person says. This person blames Stillerman for the decision to fire Darabont. (Stillerman also has a strained relationship with Mad Men's Weiner, who declines to speak to him.)
    It's hearsay, but if you're also pissing off Mad Men... **** you.

    You left out the facts that they waited until the day after SDCC to fire him, and, they are alledgedly making it all too clear to the people involved that if you talk...you are gone.

    Well, you mentioned those previously, so I wasn't going to repeat it.

    But, yeah, I'm half tempted to not watch Season 2 based on this bull****.

    You can start by NOT buying the double dip(already) of season one. I mean, c'mon...the only change is that they have a b&w version of the show on it...hurm I wonder where that gem of an idea came from(hint:see The Mist)

    What if I hadn't bought the original release yet?

    I think we still have them all on the DVR, though. Maybe I'll wait and buy it used.

    It should have been obvious the way AMC repeated the original 6 incessantly and within a couple months announced a retread of the boxset that they were simply trying to recoup their investment instead of protecting the 'specialness' of their show. Do Not Buy new. I wish I hadn't already bought the first set.

    Oh No They Didn't! - Kurt Sutter: 'Mad Men' Greed Hurting 'Breaking Bad' and 'Walking Dead'

    Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter stirred up Twitter Thursday morning and it didn’t have anything to do with the Emmy Awards. Sutter makes the compelling case that AMC spent so much money making Matt Weiner happy and renewing Mad Men that it is looking to slash costs everywhere else. Sutter thinks it’s that which has led ultimately, to Frank Darabont being fired from The Walking Dead and all the chatter about Sony’s negotiations with AMC for Breaking Bad not going well (reports of AMC looking to slash costs and episode counts).
