Ronald D. Moore:
Television is a lot of compromise, especially running a show over the course of a season. It's about managing compromise and picking battles. "I'm going to fight for this and I'll let that go." And I don't know that that's in Harlan's makeup... I think he fights all the battles, because I think he thinks all the battles are worth fighting. "Sure, you could compromise on that, but then it's gonna suck."
Most writers I know run that idiotic number about "Oh, I like to have written but I don't like to write. It's hard work."... Of course it's hard work. If it weren't hard work, everybody would be doing it. And the better you do it, the harder the work is... Art is supposed to be hard.
