This is a very funny and very sad little humor bit.
I can actually picture poor M. Knight going through this. And...who would blame him if he did? Looking back on his career, it's a downward spiral of "used to be" starting with the wondrous SIXTH SENSE and crashing into the pits of THE HAPPENING and THE LAST AIR BENDER. I saw five minutes of THE HAPPENING and I wanted to commit horrid acts of violence on myself. Anything to be able to stop watching.
I finally settled on turning off the TV. I thought it was a good call.
