    Oh Watashi, I would have lived in ignorance but you had to tell me the leaked version was up and I had to go and download it and watch it just now and now I have month before I can see more. Oh cruel world.

    That was an awesome intro.

    It was pretty good, I liked the world building as usual but I found the drama on par with just an average episode of the first show. It isn't hitting the dramatic highs yet (I just mean in terms of beats and pacing, not narrative reveals), but that's to be expected.

    No, I'm just waiting for it to actually start so I won't have to wait weeks for the third episode. Let's see how long I hold out, though.

    Watching these. Loving these. So far, a great way of honoring the tone of the original series while going in a different direction.

    I missed this last episode, but I can't really find a "good place" to see it, if you know what I mean. Anybody know of a good place? I don't wanna skip an episode and catch the next one without seeing this last one.

    Also, J.K. Simmons as Tenzin? Sounds almost nothing like him. I'm impressed. He's such an awesome actor. So far, really enjoying this.

    This is... pretty good. Seems like some of the really great streaming sites have gone bye-bye.

    Wait... you're right. That episode isn't supposed to be out until tomorrow. SKETCHY.

    Here is a link for episode three. It's okay as long as you pop it out to full screen.

    :lol:

    We're synched, you and I. I just now was at wiki looking at the episode names/descriptions and realized that the one you posted was the new one showing tomorrow haha. I found the 3rd episode somewhere too, though it linked back to that nowvideo site. Regardless, thanks! I may go ahead and watch episode 4 while I'm at it.

    Though there are some small cliches, I'm really enjoying that this picked up the "surprising complexity" torch from TLA re: Aman and the Equalists...

    I actually don't think it's an unquestionably good deed, which is why it's such a brilliant concept for a villain. It's effectively the equivalent of castrating a pedophile, and that makes it a very easy thing to argue both sides of. What's even better is that they set precedent for this with Aang and Ozai, so any argument against Amon is a criticism of Aang, too. It's soooo, so good as a series conflict.

    By the way, you guys are looking around for illegal streaming sites when they put up full episodes on the official Nickoledeon site. Heh.

    With Aang and Ozai, was anyone really arguing that it was the wrong thing to do, given the Avatar's charge of keeping balance? Maybe loyal fire-benders, if anyone, but I'd be interested to see who objects to gang leaders having their powers taken away. True, it's not Amon's "right" to do it...unlike the alleged "right" of the Avatar to exercise that power in order to keep balance. It's a nifty problem. Really, Amon and the Equalists are just the expanded, populist versions of the Avatar's role; they are also trying to achieve a "balance" in their own way.

    Also, I just learned recently that the female version of the Wizard class in the upcoming Diablo III game was voiced by the woman who did Azula. Which is just perfect given that the wizard character is a reckless, condescending, extremely powerful young rogue student of the magical arts who considers herself invincible.
