I apologize, I thought it was a pretty respectful comment. I also agree with you about most of it. But I don't see why as a fellow fan of Kim's Convenience it's time to call this bad news.

I am the son of an Iranian-Israeli immigrant and an American, and my mom's siblings scattered so that I have an aunt who lived 30 years in Chile before learning English, a number of Farsi-speaking cousins, and a Brazilian aunt (technically aunt-in-law). Can you please just not tell me what my own experiences are. In my mom's side of the family, they talk different languages at home and they always talk Farsi or Hebrew or Spanish to each other even when in front of Americans. That's all I was saying.
