True dat. I think we tend to forget and underestimate the effect Covid had on the entertainment industry. And the strikes just sort of continues the ongoing changes in the industry.sure, but the context is the slamming together of covid and the streaming wars
streaming platforms were already in an arms race when covid hit - it's hard to monday morning QB decisions disney, apple, amazon, netflix, hbo, et al made at the time
Apple & Amazon probably came out the least scathed, but that's probably bc they had better capacity to absorb and weren't already behemoths
i promise you very few of us were home during covid wishing they'd turn down the spigots - we're now all overfed and bloated with content and blaming the content providers and not addressing our consumption habits
