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.
Actually, only one channel works, now: the DVD channel. We get DVDs from the library and see stuff. No more Conan, since the digital switch. No Jimmy Fallon. No Letterman. My Sarah Palin quotient is way, way, down, but the library has this special section for movies way down below B grade, and it overfloweth with stuff like Dyin' ta Kill, and Killin' ta Live, and Hard to Whack and such and I sometimes peruse that. But that's neither here nor there.

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.
I don't watch purely for taste. That's why I sometimes listen to Rush Limbaugh--just to hear the grunting and say, "Tut-tut."

You gotta know what's floating out there amidst the sharks. It's called "Bottom-Feeders."

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.
That and it seems to be a quite widespread opinion that he seems like ...well...a kind of an ABRUPT...sudden;;; u;h....what's that word for that kind of guy? Oh, yeah. Kind of a jerk. Some people say. But he does seem to carefully cultivate that image, so who am I to deny him?
