So, in a lost age of time, when darkness rises from the Fire Nation, it is the Avatar's duty to stop the evil fire lord from causing mayhem and world destruction. The avatar is the only person in the world that can master all four fighting techinques with elements! Its like a super power! You get to control Air, Water, Earth, and Fire! This show is about the only other true masterpiece Nick has besides Drake and Josh. All the characters are awesome! Aang, Katara, Toph, Sokka, Momo, and Appa are the good guys (with Momo and Appa being the good animals.) The bad guys are at first Zuko, then Azula, Mai and Ty Lee, and the biggest opponent is the Fire Lord who at the last four episodes becomes the Phoenix King! But towards the end, Zuko, Mai and Ty Lee all eventually join the good side! And peace is restored to the world after Aang takes Ozai's fire powers away. This show has some of the best characters, plots, storylines, settings, and animation art EVER!!! Really, this show is simply amazing! Not to mention perfect! I am a true Avatar fan and love all the episodes and everything about this show! All three books were exciting to watch and its great seeing the world of Avatar! The video games are awesome too! feel the exciting adrenaline rush baby! Whooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!
Man how I miss this show and want it back so much! But I am looking forward to those live-action movies coming out in the future! Bring them on!
After watching the first episode, there has been this uncontrollable desire to keep watching and wanting to know more, and the next episode never fails to wow you. The battle scenes and ideas are so original and astounding that it makes one really want to re-watch the whole series again. The music and sound-effects are always spot-on and adds to the overall beauty of the whole show. Humor and the many different emotions literally bring the film to live and manipulates the mood of the audience in the Avatar's epic battle against the fire nation. Avatar: The Last Airbender really deserves its many awards and it really gets better every season as each character changes and grows. In short, stunning visuals, great voice-acting, beautiful music and smashing animation - a must watch for the young and the young at heart! All these qualities sets this show apart from the rest. I give this show two thumbs-up and a rating of 10/10.
This is one of my favourite cartoons. Into is interesting and fun to watch with humourous, suspenseful, action packed episodes.
The characters personalities and past are portrayed well and developed, each different, each interesting. I need a new word instead of interesting. My favourite characters would have to be Azula, (she is so awesome and dark), Iro, he is so funny and enjoyable to watch and strong little Toph. They make the characters so interesting. Characters: 8.5/10
The animation is quite good, not over the top or detailed but still detailed enough and the use of colours is quite good too. The animation for the action scenes are done really well and look believable enough (despite the fact that it is cartoon).
The story has a well developed concept that gets more involved and deeper each season, and more addictive in a sense. Story: 9/10
It was centuries ago when all four nations; fire, water, earth and air lived in peace. When the fire nation started war, however, things went downhill from there. There was only the Avatar, master of all four elements, who could stop the war.
Aang is a twelve year old boy from the Southern Air Temple. Normally, you are given the title of The Avatar when you are sixteen, but Aang found out the news when he was twelve. He never wanted to become The Avatar, because it negatively impacted his life, even though it was a great honor. He ran away from the Southern Air Temple with his flying bison, Appa. It was then when he and Appa ended up inside an iceberg only to be found one hundred years later. In the beginning of the series, Katara, a water bender from the Southern Water Tribe, and her arrogant but humorous brother, Sokka, find Aang and Appa inside the ice berg. Since then, they embarked many adventures, while running away from the fire nation. Because it was The Avatar's duty to master all four elements, he started with water. Katara was the perfect teacher for him. Then, he moved on to earth bending. Aang and the gang found an earth bender named Toph, a blind girl who was recognized as "The Blind Bandit". The four of them continue to adventure, as Aang prepares to end the war by fighting the fire lord. Aang must fight the fire lord before the occurence of The Sozin's Comet, a periodical time where Fire Benders are at their most powerful. Can Aang bring the world back to peace? At first, I didn't pay much attention to this show. It wasn't until after the series finale when I started watching. The series finale was so exciting, and I had to know everything that happened before. Although it's hard to see a series end, this show is definitely a favorite.
Avatar I definitely know is the best show on Nickelodian, it's fortunate it for us Rockin' Avatar fans that they released DVD's in the stores for this show so we can watch them at home until our heart's content. I love Avatar: The Last Airbender, it is an exciting show that is totally an epic win! It has very memorable and cool characters. The show also has some awesome girls like Katara and Toph. That was great Ty Lee became a good girl at the very end and left the dark side! The last four chapters in book three were SUPER AMAZING and EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lord Ozai (aka the Phoenix King) was defeated and Aang and his friends achieved sweet victory! I loved this show when I watched, like, the first few episodes. Book one was great and the last two chapters were definitely worth watching. Book two and three were extremely awesome. More exciting plots and things started happening in those two books. More confrontations and plot twists were forming, and new characters entered the scene. This show is truly a God of excitement and action/adventure filled with entertainment and thrills, stored in one special treasure chest that unleashed the beautiful animation treasure the very first day this show aired on television! This show is so popular that this show was broadcast worldwide! There is a lot of proof as to how this is one of the most greatest carton shows of all time that the whole family can enjoy by sitting down and watching it! Whenever and wherever this show airs next, go ahead and watch it! You shan't be disappointed! This show still lives on even when it is over, that's how awesome this show is! It also brings back good memories of the good old days when this was running and shown a lot more on television. (2005-2008.) Long live Aang and the rest of the characters and the whole show Avatar: The Last Airbender! Oh, and users who disagree with this review don't know what a good show is for sure. Good day, I love Avatar!
aang is the last of his kind. the last of the air nomads. he is also the avatar the one who is supposed to leran all elements earth water fire and air learning of an impending war and having to restore order he runs away on his sky bison appa they then are frozen in a block of ice. 10o years later enter katara a lonley southern water waterbender and she is the only one of her tribe who can bend water. she and her brother sokka then find aang in a block of ice setting a stage for a new line of adventures ahead.[ note: this is for season 1]
I love Avatar, this was a superb and excellent type of animated television show, and its truly Nick's best. This show I find to be about the only show so far that I like even more than SpongeBob (I love both shows.) But with SB's decline and some crappy new episodes its no match for this animated gem right now on Nick even if it has ended. (If SB was doing as good as it was in its first three seasons right now then maybe it would be powerful enough to compete witht his show, but not right now at the moment.) Personally I think this show is the most awesome and it always will be, I think this show is one of the best there is, and Nick did great with it for a while until they decreased its air time. Things just seemed to go downhill continuously with Nick ever since that happened. Well hey at least this show had a truly awesome grand finale episode split into four segments, and it ended great. This show can withstand the test of time and will forever be immortalized and live on in our memories because of its powerful excitement, characters, plots, stroylines, morals, and epic structure. This definitely is Nick's best animated tv show, whilst Drake and Josh I think is Nick's best live-action show. This show is so great that from sources around here I see that it looks like this show will get a movie to hit the big screen, but it will be in live-action form. The characters are some of the most memorable ones ever, and each one is great. I like Aang, Katara, Toph, Ty Lee, Azula, Uncle Iroh, Zuko, and Lord Ozai (aka the Phoenix King.) There's a few other characters I think are pretty good too. Now, when this show started it became a top favorite of mine immediately. I also loved the show as it progressed through new chapters and books. Exciting episodes and TV movies are what makes this show worthwhile. Live on Avatar: The Last Airbender! Now I am ending this perfect review. ~Reno.~
This show is really amazing.
Its an easy show , excellent characters and storyline .
I enjoyed watching this show.
When I first heard about this show I was thinking "Hmm , It is looking pretty childly." But after I started watching it , I really didn't regret .
I enjoyed very much. this show is for all ages, for children and for teenagers and adults .
Even this is a cartoon , the story is fantastic , the characters are great, and full of humor , when you are starting to watch it , you can't stop.
I really recommend on this excellent show for anyone!
k serious who doesn't love this hsow? the plan and ideas for it and the way it was done was so great! i wish it was back on television because i never saw the last episode and i really want to, the last episode i saw was the one with Toph, the sick earthbender, i heard they're making a movie Avatar, but it isn't going to be cartoon which is kinda a letdown because cartoon was the original idea, but whatever i'll still be one of the first people in line in the cinemas with my popcorn and lollies and drink waiting to watch the movie, rock on!
The avatar is a master of all four elements and keeps the nations at peace. But when the avatar disapears and the world is taken over by war, the next avatar (who is a small boy) has to face all the things he tried to run away from. This is his journey.
This show is absaloutly magnificent! you may think its just a childish cartoon but if so you are completely wrong! The show takes you to a world of bending, magic, war, love and loss. you cant help but fall in love with the characters in the 1st five minutes! it is extremely well writen and the way the martial arts and bending is done is fabulous! The story has an ongoing plot line unlike most of the other shows out there. The freindship of the 5 main characters is lovely. this show really deserves much more than it is given credit for. this is truely a classic, one of a kind, show. and if you havent watched this show i strongly recomend to you, with every bone in my body to do so. it will change your life.
Avatar is the best show on nick. No other show can compete. It is very original and maintains a balance of action,comedy, and romance. It has a wide rage of fans that support and love the show. It is a great loss that Avatar ended, but it will always be remembered as the greatest show ever. The creators,Mike and Bryan, are 2 of the best writers. They made Avatar possible and great. The show got 3 seasons and lasted for 4 years. That is very good considering most shows don't get that long. Over all Avatar is a very successful show and will always be remembered.
I love Avatar! I am a huge fan of this truly amazing action and adventure television show. This show is one of the reasons to watch tv since sometimes it truly has animated gold such as this that is always worth watching when you got the time. This show I say belongs on the top ten best shows ever in all of tv history's list. The whole show in general is very imaginative and creative, the creator is very cool and a genius! This show is based on a different kind of world that is in a lost age of time, and there's four natural elements where certain people can bend one of them. The avatar is the only one who can bend and master all four of the elements. The characters in this show are cool (like the guys Aang, Zuko, Iroh, and Sokka) and the girls (Katara, Toph, Ty Lee, and Azula.) Let's not forget the villain: Lord Ozai! He is cool too even though he is very evil! I will always love this show and will always truly be a spectacular masterpiece! All the characters are great, and the whole concept of this show is well thought-out and organized. Which element is your favorite? Air, Water, Fire, or Earth? There's also special episodes like The Library and Appa's Lost Days that show sand benders! So yeah this always will be animated gold on Nick, no matter what Nick does with it! Not airing it much won't change nuthin', because we got DVDs! So ha! We don't need Nick to watch Avatar (at least not entirely.) Well I also got a lot of favorite episodes too and I am so glad they made video games out of this! The video games are just as exciting as the show! Man, this show is so awesome and was truly a golden idea. I can't describe it enough because its so awesome!
This show will always be better than a show that is currently in a crappy stage right now which is SpongeBob too, no matter what the SB fans say, this show beats SB right now anyday and no fan can defeat this show as it will always better infinity and beyond! So the two people that are disagreeing with these reviews I think don't have good taste in tv shows. (And I think they are just wasting their time.)
I've been watching this show since the day it came out!! its my all time favorite! it has like every drama in it which attracts so many people, but the show is defiantly underrated, especially by Nick. they hardly ever advertize or better yet even air the show. they really need to change that. for some weird reason they think not a lot of people like it. but whats not to like? it it has drama, suspense, Romance, tons of action & adventure, and humor, what more could you want in a show!!?? even though the last episode was amazing, the ended it too soon. too many cliffhangers!!
When I first saw Avatar premiering on Nickelodeon, I was just at the age where I was getting out of this stuff. Cartoons were no longer cool, parties and cell phones were. I laughed at it, never really taking it to heart, casting it aside when I really actually hadn't seen a single episode. Three years later something strange happens. I see a good review of the show from a guy that had a Ph.D.. My interest was peaked. I started to do my research and I realized that it was highly rated on this site, and critically acclaimed overall. I still couldn't respect it, but I wanted to watch it to see what it was about. Another year passes, and I hear my friends talking about Avatar. I'm off to buy season 1. I didn't regret it for a second. Even though the characters acted like they would on Spongebob or Suite Life of Zack and Cody, it was complemented by an amazing story that could be compared to Lord of the Rings or Star Wars. Some of the episodes were amazing and some of my personal favorites would be "Jet", "The Storm", "The Fortuneteller", "The Water-bending Master", and "The Siege of the North".
Then went back and bought season 2 and 3. And then it was over. I sat their stunned at the end of Sozin Comet, picturing myself four years ago, writing it off as another "children's" show. This is a rare show that will appeal to the whole family. I humbly bow before the show that proved to me this was possible.
In a time of turbulant war and a traitor at every corner, the world cries out for a hero. The Avatar has been gone for 100 years, and now he's back. With his friend's, he's out to save the world and rid it of the turbulance of the Fire Nation.
Avatar is one of my favourite shows, hands down. Personally, I love things with action, comedy and romantic tension, but Avatar also tackles more mature things, such at the dicomety of good and evil. Its a show where the charactors actually expierence growth and changes and mature into something different. Bad guys are not truly bad, good guys struggle with their inner darkness, and all of them are pushed to the breaking point while they fight their own demons and try to make sense of the world.
You how how, when you watch a show from the very beginning, you immediatly make presumptions on it? You decide you hate this charactor, love this guy, ship those two, that sort of thing; if a show is good enough, the charactors change and remake your opinions. Avatar is this show. In fact, my previous inclination to Azula was pure hatred. I still dislike her, but since the finale, I can understand and sympathize with her. Zuko is someone I love and admire. Katara is someone I disliked, but have grown to appreciate. Sokka: hands down folks, who doesn't like Sokka?
Keep watching Avatar and steer clear of cactus juice ;)
Avatar, I was not sure at first as to watch this show or not. Whenever I went on Tv.com I could see that TLA is always first. I was intrigued, but what displeased me was the child-like animation (or maybe the image of Aang smiling when I entered the shows main page). I decided to give it a try. Many thousands of people cannot be wrong, now could they? I've started to watch the show and I was hooked on it ever since. The animation was great, the plot and fight were simply awesome. And on top of that it was like anime, it was not random episodes about nothing like we see nowadays. The plot developed the characters, their relationships. That is what made this show so great, there was love, fighting. My only disadvantage towards the show is the fact it is for kids, I wish it was for 16+ audiences, it would certainly be more interesting. So if you haven't watched this show yet, try it, I think you'll like it.
Avatar its a great story about the end of the world and a profechy about the "one" that will save us from extinction
Season 1 was the awsome beginning the iceberg thing was awsome and the persecution from Zuko, the War on The North awsome really awsome
Season 2 its like the uphill of the show with Aang learning Earthebding, new friends & foes, Zuko's transformation for a destiny to seek and the Fall Of Ba Sing Se awsome really awsome
Season 3 the end with Aang defeating the Fire Lord (the battle is the best awsome), ZUko destiny acomplished and everyone happy
The end is awsome with Aang & Katara finally kiss
Avatar is by no means the best cartoon ever to come out, lets not exaggerate. However with its pg kid targeting and i would say appropriate for most people they have done a fantastic job. At first i thought the whole idea was too shallow, four elements, make the main guy overpowered and can use all four. But then as it progressed and the elements are explored, it opens up wondrous possibilities. Although the show tries to pull off being funny and amusing, it doesn't do that very well, xept that sword guy i already forgot his name. Where avatar excelt in my opinion is in the script, most importantly the princes uncle, his lines add real depth to the story. Action starts out pretty shallow, but develops to be powerful indeed. The earth bender bending metal, and using it as armor, the water bender bends blood, the fire bender produces lightning, the air bending is probably the one that started good from the start which is why it didnt need much development. Overral Avatar is a great show that should be watched from start to finish in order to fully love it, i find myself picking guilty pleasure because its a kids show, but i still love it.
I believed this show brought Nickelodeon some MULA!! Honestly a true classic and one of the best shows of a lifetime. I also love the way the characters are drawn, very well developed and superior show. Its a true competitor against the animations of Cartoon Network. If only there were more shows like Avatar, the television world would be a better place. Honestly a very unique show. I'm really impressed the way the show's story went through. It's not the longest lasting show ever, and I know that, but I just had hoped there could of been a 4th season...
Avatar: The Last Airbender, is about a boy named Aang, who being the Avatar, must journey off to save the world from the Fire Nation, and ultimately stop a 100 year long war, with the help of his good friends Katara, Sokka, and later on, Toph.
This show is magnificent, if nothing more. The plot is great, the characters are fantastic, and the relationship between some of them adds a spice to the story that makes the show what it is.
It starts out at the South Pole, where two siblings from the Southern Water Tribe, Katara and Sokka, are fishing around their village, when they discover an iceberg, and a boy inside it. The boy's name is Aang, and eventually, Katara and Sokka find out that Aang has been frozen inside that iceberg for 100 years, and that he's the Avatar, the person who watches over the world and keeps it in balance, and who is a master of all four elements: Water, Earth, Fire, and Air. Aang is also an Airbender, and the last of his people. Aang finds out that a war, started by the Fire Nation, has been raging for 100 years. And after a Fire Nation ship attacks Katara and Sokka's village, Aang must leave with his new friends to find a way to master Water, Earth, and Firebending; Avatar skills he needs in order to defeat the Fire Nation's leader, Fire Lord Ozai, and resort balance and peace to the world.
All three seasons were great, with lots of excitement and heart pounding battles! And, although I love the show so much and in my heart, wish it would continue, the ending, and the final suspenseful episodes, were still an excellent way to conclude Avatar: The Last Airbender!
My favorite TV show on Nick! I really like it- so CLASSIC. It's original, exciting, and tickles my funny bones! Who think that a cartoon based on Asian influence would be this popular? I love every episode and I enjoy every minute of them. I also luuurve the ending- it really just like what I wanted. Zuko and Mai reaffirm their relationship, Suki and Sokka end up together, but what I wanted most- no Zutra. At. All. [No offense, Zutarians!]. I just don't like the pairing, especially Katara. Awwww, young love.. [Did not reach 100?!] But also make me cry.
This is one of the greatest animated shows I've seen in a long time. Though it's a show meant for elementary and middle school children, this is truly one of the few animated shows that can be enjoyed by the whole family. I'm a college sophomore and I must say this show is great. I truly wish they would make not only an Avatar movie (post war), but a 4th book. The Air book. I would love to see how their lives turned out since the new Fire Lord is in place, and the Avatar is the most powerful being in the world. Revisiting our old friends from episodes psat would be fantastic. A lot of other reviewers thinks that Nickelodeon is losing it's touch, and it might be. But it's not because of this show. Avatar: The Last Airbender is part of my top 5 greatest animated shows of all time.
Ever since i saw the commercials showing up on the tv screen about this i thought it was going to be a pretty good show, until i saw my very first episode which happened to be Warriors of Kyoshi. Now, as time progressed and i watched more and later episodes they got more thrilling and epic, in fact, they were so amazing that i immediately thought: Man, this show sure does rock, one of the best shows ever!!! And i always couldn't wait to see the next episode. Truly amazing characters and a cool story in some episodes, and always something exciting happening in just about every episode. We also got some episodes with very good life lessons, a good episode that shows that would be The Storm. Book one was great, especially the last four episodes, but if i got a favorite book it would have to be book two. That book was awesome and i think had the best episodes, absolutely fantastic. There was so many exciting and epic episodes in that one that i lost count. Book three was great too, and the last four chapters made a very awesome and successful finish to this show. I swear, this show was one of the best shows of all time to hit tv, and is like tv's ultimate pirate treasure. Sadly this show is now over but it will live on, and we all will be ready to get a kick out of the live-action movie (i hope its good.) Anyone who doesn't like this show just don't know good shows when they see them. Avatar has so many great things about it. Man this show rules in so many ways. Peace out!
All in all i think it was a very clever way of finishing off a fantastic series. Remember Aang never kills anyone in the series . he is a calm monk. In the episode with the water tribe with Zhao.Aang is released before the spirit kills Zhao. So I think it was very true to the Aang's character the way it ended. He figured out a way to solve the problem without killing someone.I love this series and I hope Nickeloden comes up even more shows like this one where kids and parents alike can both be sucked into a great storyline.
Avatar its a Tv show animation like no other every season it gets better and we get to know the four nations culture every season
Alright Book One: Water was the start, Anng is found, the war blah blah but excelent!!
Book Two: Earth introduction of Azula and the Earth Kingdom City of Ba Sing Se falls excelent too!
Book 3: Fire its the end when the final battle gets place the fight with the Fire Lord Ozai its awsome OMG i never saw an animation battle so great
The show its really awsome and the story about a legend blah blah blaj awsome too!!
This is just an awesome and totally epic show. I loved it so much before it ended, and I still love it. It's just amazing. All the characters are great and all the episodes are great (yes, I even like The Great Divide). The progression of the show it just fantastic and the whole concept. I have to admit, at first I thought it was stupid, but I've grown to love it. Avatar is the best show in the world, and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. ~boomeraangsquad
BTW: I am so excited for the live action movies. We avatards still got something to look forward to.
I LOVED this show!! I'm so sad it's over but it had an awesome run. That finale was just amazing! *sigh*
This show really had everything; a great story line, great characters, great animation, great music! it wasnt just a one show pony, it had drama, action, humor, and romance all magically balled up into one!
Every episode was always so interesting to watch and there were always such great messages behind each episode. Whatever challenges the they characters might have faced, there was always that subtle message about the important things in life; friendship, loyalty, belief in self, determination, justice, compromise, awareness, and, of course, honor.
It's easily one of my favorite shows to watch, it's absolutely awesome!!
This show is fabulous in many ways. Although the original concept when i heard it seemed very uncreative what they did with it was unbelievable. First of the fights and fight choreography is some of the best you will EVER see in any type of show. The characters are fun but also have depth. I cant get enough of the complexity of Zuko character.The lands are well drawn and creative and truly drags you into a new world. My only complains would be that some of the characters can be annoying at times and there is not a lot of uniqueness in abilities at some times. But these are minor this that only slightly hurt an incredible show.
One of the best shows I have watched in a long time, The story is so interesting that once you get started you have keep watching more and more. The characters are really realistically created making you feel what they feel at the time. All the injustices or fun times, this will one of the few memorable shows that you will be able to watch again and again without getting bored. I loved every second of it, from the start to finish. Overall a very well put together show that will enchant its audience again and again or for how long they keep watching it.
Where do I start? First I have to say that this is one of the best shows that I have encountered in my life. It simply has everything that a perfect show is supposed to have: brilliant story line, seriousness, great humor, the production is just flawless, the voices are matched to the characters....
There are thing happening between the characters from which you can draw life-meaning conclusions.
The sound track is beautiful, every piece of music is always perfect for the moment.
If you are looking for an exciting journey filled with feeling, love, fights, jokes the look no further you have found the right show.
