    Avatar: The Last Airbender

    Is this show really that good?

    I've heard from everywhere that the show is the only top animation show currently airing that's worth checking out.

    I'm really interested in it now considering Shyamalan is directing the film adaptation.
    Sure why not?

    I've seen some episodes. It's not worthless like other action shows like Digimon or whatever, but it doesn't interest me at all.

    Disregard.

    Yes, this show is excellent and yet to be featured on my top 50 list. One thing that is excellent is like many anime it is set to be a certain amount of episodes, it's I think 10 episodes away from the conclusion. But it's really quite good and has a good pace to it. You need to watch it from the beginning though as just random episodes shant be a good idea. It gets very addicting early on. (Total episodes 61, currently at 53 aired.)

    I thought it sucked. Though I only saw two episodes. It's not my type of show at all.

    EDIT: I was stupid.

    I will echo this. I have only watched the first season, but found it to be a smart, fun, endearing and, yes, addictive show. I got quite into it, although I haven't made the time to watch the second season yet (but did catch a couple episodes on television, which were okay, but not great). The Jason Isaacs character was pretty cool, and of course I love Mako (RIP). I don't know who voices Iroh now.

    And I can't believe Shyamalan is directing a movie. So not going to work.

    I've been trying to figure out if I should bother with this. I may have to.

    Alright, I've been on an Avatar kick for the past week and watched Book One and now is starting on Book Two. This show fucking rocks. The animation is glorious, the martial art sequences are epic, and Appa is the coolest fucking thing ever. He's like the father of Catbus. It helps to have strong characters and have a great sense of humor (it's fucking funny as hell sometimes). Definitely the strongest animated show I've seen in awhile.

    It starts off slow, but halfway through season one, it picks up fast.

    I strongly recommend it to everyone.
    Sure why not?

    Why would that be what piques your interest? Shyamalan is a fucking hack.

    Disagree, but really it's his script writing I can't stand. I don't mind his direction... aside from actors, which is as equally terrible as his writing or his own acting.

    I still need to find time to start Book Two.

    I've only seen a few episodes, but I thought it was sweet. Sweet enough to have me searching for the seasons on dvd for cheap.

    If it isn't the best, it's pretty damn close. Oh man, my love for this show has escalated so much after that ending. Awesome!

    Now that it is actually over, and it's not going to run on and on without an ending like so many Western cartoons, I am anxious to check it out.

    Is the whole thing on DVD yet?

    The first two seasons and 3/4 of the third season are. I think the finale will be released on DVD next Tuesday.

    You should really check it out, D.

    The show's badass is a 13-year old blind girl.

    Sounds good. I've been interested in it, but, like most western cartoons, I was afraid that they would never actually finish the story, and so I held off on watching it.

    Now that this main arc is done, I'm totally down.

    I'm halfway through the first season and love it. I watched like 6 episodes in a row last night.

    The animation is really good sometimes, especially the battle scenes. I also really like the Asian influences on the designs and themes.

    I wasn't afraid of that, but the fact that it has ended certainly put it on my list of shows to check out. I'm kind of like that.

    Great show, I genuinely teared up at a few moments. Zuko and his uncle near the end for instance... damn that was moving. King Bumi, greatest character ever.

    Screw the Shyamalan films but I really do hope they're working on a series with a new avatar character.
