    I've been watching that too. I enjoyed hearing George Takei twirl his mustache as a Fire Lord General.

    I should watch it with the kids; I think they'll like it. And a lot of people do what they do for their country without examining it too hard.

    We just finished Season 1 of Russian Doll, staring Natasha Lyonne (I think mostly known for Orange is the New Black) and created by Leslye Headland, Natasha Lyonne and Amy Poehler. We enjoyed the series which is funny and poignant and more than a bit existentialist. It's on Netflix and while the story seemed to wrap up quite well Netflix says Season 2 is on its way. I can't see how but...OK.

    We also just watched The Hustle with Rebel Wilson and Anne Hathaway. And why did someone feel the need to produce a really bad remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels? Very few funny bits and if you've seen DRS you know what's coming.

    Now we're on to the Kominsky Method with Michael Douglas, Alan Arkin and Nancy Travis, and liking it quite a lot. It probably helps that we're in the actor's age group.

    My wife is also watching Virgin River which is too Hallmark-y for my tastes but she is enjoying it.

    Yes, of course that is true, but it doesn't make it any less anathema to me personally or problematic in general.

    If you stick with it, I think you'll come to change your mind about Iroh. Or at least find him to be less one-dimensional.

    And for some reason, hearing the words "Brave Soldier Boy" makes my eyes water.

    Well, after all Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was itself a remake of Bedtime Story so there is a precedent. That being said, I don't know of anyone who actually thought The Hustle was worth making or watching. Every review I have read basically came to the same conclusion as you.

    I watched Knives Out on Amazon Prime. If not familiar, itís a mystery and supposedly a comedy, but I didnít see much comedy. I did, though, have one laugh out loud moment near the end, but mostly it was a reaction to surprise. Nicely done though. Lots of familiar actors. It was entertaining, I recommend it.

    I watched Avatar-last Airbender when it came out, and some episodes Iíd missed a bit after. Just checking it, I didnít realize it started back in 2007. For some reason I thought it was more recent. Of course, it is focused in the kid/teenager demographic but it does get into some fairly serious topics, though with violence toned down a fair bit versus more adult oriented material. And the fight scenes are often choreographed quite nicely.

    Iím not sure if I want to watch it again, but if you donít mind anime-style animation it is quite good.

    Is he gay, like Raymond Burr?

    We watched Hamilton, streaming on Disney+. I can see why that play was so successful. Intriguing story. Fantastic cast. Wonderful performances. Beautiful staging.

    No, later on in the show there are scenes where he is definitely hetero. I was referring to a scene during the first 10 minutes of the show where he's been hired to spy on a young starlette and her secret lover. He take pics of them during a wildly sexual eye popper, with pie, whipped cream, and the Full Monty dessert.

    I swear, I just finished reading Jimís post on Hamilton and then saw the question about whether Burr was gay and my brain slipped a cog and thought the reference was to Aaron Burr.
