Amazing showJun 25, 2007
I am in my late 20s, and I have to say this is one of the best cartoons I have ever seen. I happened to watch it one day while flipping channels and was hooked. I have gotten a TON of my friends hooked on it as well, and the dvds for season one have been changing hands all the time.
Regarding the show itself: The animation is well done, often with beautiful scenes and accompanied by simple and beautiful music. The characters have depth and complexity rarely seen in cartoons.
Regarding Season Two: This season is excellent. A great new character is introduced (though actually many great characters are introduced in Season two). The finale, like that of seasons one's, was exciting, fast paced, and EXTREMELY well done. The creators put a lot into the finales and it shows. The season finales have an epic feel to them, and often feature some sort of homage to Hiyao Miyazake, the creator of some of the best animated movies. On a sad note, the talented Mako, who voiced Uncle Iroh in season 1 and 2, passed away. His character is my favorite on this show, and I hope they find someone for season three that can fill his big shoes.
I love this show and I know myself and many others are eagerly waiting for the premiere of season three. You come to care for these chracters and waiting to find out what happens is difficult. Basically, this show can be enjoyed on a lot of different levels, by a variety of people and ages.

Nothing more than pure brilliance!Jun 01, 2007
Season two finds our heroes after the events of season one, new characters and new plotlines make this season a keeper. I can't believe we are nearing the end of the series ark. Season three is said to be the last season, (which it should be, the story will be done after Aang learns how to fire bend and defeats the Fire Nation, better to have three GOOD seasons than six consecutive ones!)and what a show it has been! Kids and adults alike are flocking to their television screens to watch the adventures of these kids expand further, mysteries and suspenseful twists make this show great even for people older than twelve. The background track music also plays a key part in the show, making every joke, action, and plotline maximized to it's fullest potential.
I recommend this show to anyone with a sense of individuality, not worried about the fact that they're watching an animated feature.

family time with avatarMay 31, 2007
By Funny Daddy
Avatar The Last Airbender - The Complete Book 1 Collection Just bought it and my whole family is enjoying it. My six year old son is watching it every night with us before bedtime. And my nieces got so involved with it that they have to continue seeing the whole series. We are still very much awaiting for the next great Avatar book 2 DVD. We are hoping that it will be released even before September. I would rate it 20 out of 10 because the whole plot of the story was that great and enjoyable for the whole family. Hopefully Nick channel will continue the Avatar story.

Best show on Nick since the glory days.Aug 28, 2007
By A. Tso
Ok, I'd like to preface this by saying I grew up in the glory days of Nick. When quality shows like Pete and Pete, Legends of the Hidden Temple and Are You Afraid of the Dark? were a dime a dozen. Lately I haven't been paying much attention to the programming on Nick. My, times have changed. Sure, I'd watch the occasional Fairly Oddparents or Spongebob but for the most part, it was programming aimed at very young kids(as opposed to the young adult crowd in the early 90's).
Consequently, I didn't think much of Avatar when I had first heard of it. I thought to myself, here was another show jumping the anime bandwagon and made to look like a Naruto clone. I gave the show a chance only through a happy accident and boy was I glad. I was hooked on the spot. Here was the diamond in the rough. Here was a show that actually had a planned storyline with a beginning, middle and end. Not only that, but every episode has a significance to the overall storyline. This is a rarity in American television when most shows have character development over random situations every week but very little overall plot development. They lacked an overall story. This is what makes Avatar appealing to me. It's epic in scope and is not afraid to end a story when it's complete. Many other shows continue to drag and milk a series if it is profitable simply because it is too tough and costly to produce yet another hit.
The characters are lovable, and a new level of depth is reached in season 2 especially when we learn more about Prince Zuko(Zuko Alone) and his uncle Iroh(Tales of Ba Sing Se). A new character is introduced in Season 2, Toph, a blind girl who happens to be a master Earthbender but is confined to her home because of her parent's belief that she is helpless. She is a welcome breath of fresh air as it's always great to see strong female lead roles, especially one with a handicap.
Lastly, I would like to conclude by saying that Season 2 is a wonderful set of episodes. It is the "Empire Strikes Back" of the series and us Avatards cannot wait for the final installment of what has been an amazing ride these past 2 and a half years.

The simplicity! The depth!Sep 05, 2007
By E. Brown
One thing I absolutely love about the Avatar:TLA series is the fact that a 5-year old can watch it, and be entertained, and a 20-year old can also watch it, and be entertained. For us older folk, it's the hidden depth behind the four nations, and all the various characters. The plot is unique and complicated -without- being confusing, which in itself is a huge achievement. I highly recommend this series to anyone willing to give it a chance. I've heard too many complaints from people that won't watch it 'cause it's animated, or even because it's and american anime, and not originally from Japan. If you'll give it a chance, it will definitely hook you.
