There are no short cuts in life. There maybe faster routes to get where you want to be, but it will still take some time to get there. Even the big networks have some learning to do. Budget cuts cut production crews smaller, places more pressure on the crews to compensate for the lack of extra hands and it cuts salaries smaller for both the production staff and talent. It's the concept of wanting more for less, and this always hurts the greater good. Let this be a lesson to us all, when you take short cuts, you cut yourself short.
