Re: Steven Seagal seems like a jerk teacher. A bit at least...

You have to buy a ticket to see a movie and I imagine your TV set has a channel selector of some sort. If you don't buy the tickets or don't watch TV that you find offensive, perhaps the selection will change to something more your taste. That was my choice and I haven't seen any of Seagal Sensei's movies for several years. I think "Under Siege" was the last. So far I don't think I've endangered his rice bowl, but I don't think he or his portrayals are evil either. I don't know him at all, so I'm not entitled to an opinion concerning his character. His characters however are just silly and over-the-top for my tastes. His worst offense to me is that he just doesn't know how to wear a military beret properly - makes me grind my teeth each and every time, but that's just me.
