  • Once again Avatar scores!

    Avatar is like the complete opposite of Dragonball Z. It makes great use of the limited 30 minutes that it is given and it is extremely proficient with it too. This episode was able to effectively cover a number of issues, such as Aang's insecurity about his two friends potentially leaving him in favour of seeing their father, and Sokka's story about being left behind by his tribe. Not sure how Avatar keeps doing this, but whether it's the acting or the great use of emotional expressions, it can make 10 minutes worth of drama into 2 minutes. Not to mention that it was able to include a sweet fight not only between Zuko and Aang, but Appa as well. Although the fight isn't really strategically smart, but it's still aesthetically pleasing.
