The studios say that the SAG rejected their latest offer but the SAG says that isn't true. Still no word of a strike vote from SAG - if this SAG stuff is of particular interest to you, be sure to check out The Hollywood Reporter's SAG/AFTRA "Strike Zone".

The big deal this weekend is HBO's Sunday premiere of "Generation Kill". The show will be dramatic and there will definitely be some "humanizing" of the members of a Marine special ops unit, but the overall reminder is that we've been at war in Iraq for over 6 years. Marines have done their tours of duty as well as entered and left the service during this period of time. It's history for these guys but it's still going on. The show features at least one _real_ Marine, Sgt. Rudy Reyes, from the unit who looks like he came from Central Casting. The show is the TV Junkie Pick O' The Weekend.
