Nah, I'd rather watch my realistic looking electric fireplace, which also provides actual heat. I never understood the whole yule log thing.
And yeah, it`s easy for a fireplace to not work. My old house had 4 real ones and they were a bitch and a half to keep up with. 100 years isn`t easy on a wooden house. Eventually they started to cause leaks in the roof and the vents didn`t vent properly. We sealed ours up, hence the idea that a fireplace can actually not work.
