That’s My Entertainment’s favorite actor, John C. McGinley who has starred in such great television series such as “Scrubs” and “Ground Floor” will be accomapnying self advocate models at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation’s annual fashion fundraiser Be Beautiful Be Yourself.

McGinley’s son Max, now 19 years old, was diagnosed with Down Syndrome and lives in Malibu with John’s wife Nichole and his two sisters Kate and Billie Grace. Max is doing well and spends a great deal of time with his family where his current loves are “Star Wars” and “Mario Brothers”.

When John is not on the stage or screen he devotes his time to his family and advocacy for down syndrome.  He is currently  on the board of the Global Down Syndrome Foundation and has been “pretty stunned”  about how active the GDSF was.

The 8 Episode Series Tries To Encompass A Lot Leaving Fans In A Cliffhanger.

Published

The 2010 “Avatar: The Last Airbender” movie by M. Night Shyamalan faced criticism for its deviations from the beloved animated series. The film struggled with pacing, casting, and a lackluster script, disappointing fans who cherished the source material. In contrast, the 2024 Netflix series has generated positive buzz for its commitment to diverse casting, adherence to the original storyline, and improved character development. The series seems poised to capture the essence of the animated show, offering a fresh and faithful adaptation that resonates with both new and existing fans.

Even though the Netflix series comes closer to the core ideals of the animated series, I feel it lacks heart. Many scenes barely scratch the surface of the relationships between the characters and the push-and-pull relationship between Aang and Zuko. I will admit the CG versions of Momo and Appa are just so gosh darn cute.

The 8 episode series tries to encompass a lot leaving fans in a cliffhanger. It’s worth a watch and I am hanging on for the next season to be announced.
