Subject: This looks pretty fun...

It reminds me just a little of Forever Young with Gibson and Wood. But with a Jewish spin on the story.

A Jewish immigrant worker who has moved to the US for a better life, falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for a century.

The brine preserves him perfectly, and when he emerges in present day Brooklyn, he finds that he hasn't aged a day.

Although I have a sneaky suspicion that it's going to hint that there's something wrong with [His great-grandson, played by Seth Rogan] living alone and not having a family.

A message I strongly disagree with. I've chosen the bachelor lifestyle (after having relationships in the past), and I am happy in it.
True, it's not what everyone wants. Each to their own, as they say. Live as you will. Point being, not everyone wants a husband or wife, and kids. And there's nothing wrong with that either.
It's just that traditional folks, usually from a conservative/religious background, find the concept of not forging your own family with a spouse and children, somehow "wrong". It's a view I come across often, and it annoys me. I don't "owe" the world a family. :P

Anyway, that issue aside, this looks entertaining. :)
