Yeah... Avatar the Last Air Bender's an all out amazing show. There are great fight sceens, hilarious episodes... Yeah. It's just great.
The story centers around Aang, and air bender who is trying to master all four elements, (air earth water and fire), Katara, a water bender, her brother sokka, Prince Zuko from the Fire Nation, and later a blind earth bender named Toph.
Aang has to defeat the Fire lord, Zuko's father, before a comet comes and the Fire Nation uses the comet's power to destroy all the other nations and rule the world.
It's a much better show that my summery is, so WATCH AVATAR!
The Earth, Fire, Air and Water nations of this allegory are at peace when they treat each other with respect, acknowledge that they have different ways of life, and different philosophies, but can still coexist peacefully.
Children's cartoons are rarely the realm for thought out philosophies and intelligent character dramas.
When I was a kid, there was nothing like Avatar: The Last Airbender on television.
After finishing the entire series today, I have firmly decided that it has to be one of the most progressive shows ever, let-alone for kids.
Most of the themes and symbolism evident in this show probably washes right over the heads of the targeted viewers, and probably even their parents.
I love it, because this fable embodies the many reasons why I believe what I do about religion, science, violence and the importance of human connection.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I believe people are able to manipulate the elements in such a way that the "benders" on this show are able to, but that the underlying concept to the story is that one way of life is not right for everyone else in the world.
Even when the Fire Nation has demolished all opposition, eradicated the followers of the peace-loving nation of Air, and taken over the fictional world of Aang and his cohorts... the way to bring order back to their world ends without death, and revenge, but with the revelation that all life is valuable... even the lives of those who could be described as evil or tyrants, and especially the lives of those who see the world differently than ourselves.
The Earth, Fire, Air and Water nations of this allegory are at peace when they treat each other with respect, acknowledge that they have different ways of life, and different philosophies, but can still coexist peacefully.
Violence and revenge, savagery and pain are only brought out once one corner of the world has decided their way of life is superior, and must therefore "save" the rest of the world from themselves.
When the only possible outcome of this conflict seems to be the assassination of the leader of the onslaught of conversion, or complete destruction of the earth... Aang, the avatar, is compelled to find another solution because he knows disconnecting himself from the world by taking another life will only continue the cycle of oppression and aggression.
It is a kids show... to be sure.
There are plenty of interesting and amusing animal hybrid creatures, and the world encompasses a people that are able to will the movement of rock, water, fire and air by training in the martial arts to the point that physics doesn't matter.
Kids save the world, all the while cracking jokes, making fun of eachother and getting into amazingly difficult situations no person could ever fathom coming out of alive.
But... beyond that, the series has a much greater meaning for anyone that is concerned for the rising tide of fundamentalism on both sides of the globe, and adds credence to the idea that pluralism is the only route to a peaceful coexistance with one-another
Surpassed only by Spongebob, Avatar is one of the few good shows remaining on Nick. Before all the crappy shows on Nick invaded (Mighty B, 6Teen, Naked Brothers Band, etc.), there were such great shows like Ren & Stimpy, Rocko, Rugrats, and to some extent Rocket Power (hey! there's a pattern! they all start with r!) all deceased. Now the only surviving good shows (at the time this review was originally written) are Drake & Josh (dying; only 3 episodes left), Spongebob, Fairly Odd Parents, & Avatar. I love it. My friends love it. Even the fa****s that I can't stand to be within a 50 mile radius love it! Avatar rules! FIN
Avatar has gone from "ok" to "amazing". This show is just 3 seasons but it is definatly worth watching. At first I thought what a dumb kids show, but it has suprising depth and originality. It follows the story of Aang, the last airbender and avatar as he follows his mission to save the world (and make some friends along the way.)
Avatar takes place in a world where warriors and benders rule. The four nations are supposed to live in harmony with the avatar keeping peace, but with the death of the last avatar (Avatar Roku) and avatar Aang frozen for a hundred years, the world changed and a global war erupeted, started by the greed of the fire nation. Now it is Aang's job to bring peace once again. This show is a must watch.
Well, I watched a few episodes. And, from what everyone says, it's pretty good.Here's the premise;
Avatar is about Katara and Sokka who finds the newest Avatar, Aang, into the iceburg. When he tries finding the whole life saving, there is he who finds all four elements, to awaken hi Avatar state, which, by the way, smexy.
Over the storyline, I must say, it has structure, and it actually continues. It has continued to what has been, the best life of the centuary.
The characters, ranging from crazy princess Azula, to rich, but tomboish, Toph, has takeing into the audience into like a hypontizing energy. They have turned into a mature take during the course of the series. Which, is pretty.
Then, comes the action, Its action has a take onto it. With heartbreaking powers and amazing effects, it has taken the flow upon our minds. It, in one word was... breath-taking.
The animation is just.. amazing. I will say that. Nothing more.
Overall., this show is the most spectacular show in this whole world. But, it has flaws. Too bad we can't see much of them. But, overall, this show is the best in history on B=Nick, and, might be, the best show in animation.
the Show needs to Come Back ! The show Could have a Fast Forward into the furture episode ! Maybe The Next Avatar After Aang.Give me some more Elements for Example : Light , Darkness , Lava , Grass , Shadow , and Sound !
Why doesn't nick Bring it Back ? At Least Show Reruns For Pete ' s Sake ! Why not Create Flashback episodes of the Previous Avatars . This Show was so Great , Elements : Oringal , Characters : Great ! As I Said Before : Brin it Back I bet Tons of Fans Have Ideas!
Avatar The Last Airbender is about a boy who tried to run from destiny but found out that destiny is what you make of it. Though the show could have easily gone more than three seasons, it a very excellent story. The characters grow and expanded on their adventure to stop the evil Fire Lord. Though the show is targeted towards kids, adults who grew up on cartoons will find it funny, well written, and a show you defiantly want your kids to watch. The show also shows that you can't judge a person base on a person alone, that everyone has their own personal strengths.
Being one of those people that still loves cartoons at the age of 22, this huge nickolodeon franchise struck me as nothing more than that; a franchise.
My god, was I wrong. I devoured each and every episode I could find, ceasing to exist in the world around me, but stop to sleep and eat. After buying the first season on a recommendation, I quickly went out and bought the rest.
The animation is pushing the limits of what a western animation studio is capable of, since the east, obviously, leave us in their wake. Unsuprisingly, it's style is heavily based on anime.
In an age where warriors harness the elements to preform amazing feats heroism. The world has become a darker place when the fire nation begins their reign of terror to conquer the world. Ang must summon his own amazing power to save the world.
This is probably the best animated series that I have ever seen. Not only was it funny and comical but it was also dramatic and intense at the same time. Most of the time I would even forget that this was a cartoon. Though it was only on for four seasons, this show was so amazing and the conclusion of the show was perfect. I am so excited for the live action movie that is set to be made based on this show. The best part about this show is that it never forgot what made it so good, and it stayed true to it self.
Avatar: The Last Airbender has got to be my favorite anime/cartoon of all time. The story revolves around Aang, an airbender, Katara, a waterbender, Soka, a fighter, Toph, an earthbender, and Zuko, a fire bender. Every generation an person is born that can master all form of bending, and this is Aang. The fire nation is trying to take over the world and only Aang can stop him. The story is about Aang's pursuit in learning the different elements. It doesn't have any death or blood, but is does have a good amount of action. It is also very funny, mostly due to Soka. There is also a very beautiful love story between Katara and Aang, and it develops very naturally. All in all, Avatar: The Last Airbender is a great show.
Another one of my top favorite shows. Filled with action, drama, fighting, romance, friendship, a journey.. its what every good show is. I loved the how everything just flowed perfectly and how they group made new friends, new enemys, and travelled the world. The main theme of the show was the comet and they kept it all the way through from beggining to end... and it oddly never got old, just more exciting. Well i wasnt crazy about the very ending but i thought the finale was pretty amazing... which is hard to do. Like many ended shows i pray they make a new season... there r still many questions that need to be answered!
In this show we got a setting of time: a lost age of time where everyone is born under having one special bending elemental technique out of four: air bending, water bending, earth bending, and fire bending. There is one person in the world however, that can do all four of these elements, and he is known as the Avatar. This show has one of the greatest storylines and plots ever, because we got this show featuring a point of time where the world is in peril, the fire nation has gone bad with an evil firelord that goes by the name of Ozai. So it is up to the avatar to stop his destruction. The fire nation has wiped out all of the airbenders from existence except for Aang, which makes him the sole survivor. This show got a wonderful set-up for seasons by having them as books, books 1-3. In each of these seasons things changed around and new characters were met, and Aanga and his friends got closer to Ozai's plans. Aang alo trained hard a lot fot he time too. I saw the finale of this show (which got broken up into four parts) and it was amazing and a definite total action filled TV movie. Well that was the layout and recap of this superb animated TV show, so now i will give out my opinions for this: It is unfortunate that this show only got three years because this show ended (for some) a little to a lot fast. This show is amazing though and i will always like it a lot. I think this is one of the best shows ever made, it had so much exciting things happening in every episode. Since it ended though rest in peace: Avatar: The Last Airbender. And for those who manage to read all of this you can freely agree/disagree too.
When eveyones sleeping roko contacts Aang they travel to rokos home island. back in the fire natoin zuko finds a scroll saying to find out about his great grandfather fire lord sozin he then the mesege said the sagins kept the secret.Aang finds Roko and visits roko's past.while zuko kept reading the final testament of Fire lord Sozin Aang finds out that roko was friends with Sozin.And roko was batling a volcano Sozin whanted to help him but then Sozin betrad Roko and left him there to die then Aang was born Aang got back telling his friends what had hapend then they all held hands
I find everything about this show amazing! I can't believe a show this good is on Nick.
Characters are usually my favorite part of any story and Avatar has great ones who develop nicely through the series. As they deal with pressures and expectations, sorrows and joys, doing all they can, and find their destiny Aang, Zuko, Toph, Katara, Sokka, Iroh, Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee are some of the most interesting and complex characters I've met.
Avatar also has amazing animation. There's some beautiful scenery, wicked fights, and tons of subtle foreshadowing. I much perfer the drawing style to other anime and anime style shows.
And of course the plot. I think it's awesome how all together the episodes tell an amazing, breathtaking story, and many episodes can stand very well on there own.
Avatar is an amazing series that I would recomend to anyone.
Avatar the Last Airbender is one of the best shows i have ever seen. I love the characters and it had such a good plot!!! Every episode was awesome. I loved the whole series but i just loved the series finale! I was so sad that it was over but it was such a good ending and now i dont have to wait for the next season/episode etc. haha In my opinion I think the show was and is just perfect!! I just want to say thank you and well done to the creators and writers of the show. : ) Edit: I can't wait for the movie!!!
You know, this is actualy pretty good, it reminds me a lot of an anime. I think the creater of Avatar, did a good job making it like an anime. It's also got pretty good fights. The only thing I don't like is the back ground music, it sounds borring, and flat, but the music dosne't matter, it's the awsome story line that matters. I usualy don't like anime wanabe shows, but this one is a exception. It also has great charecter build up. The only charecter I hate, is Katara, I can't stand her, I wish she would leave, she's so anoying. Anyway, I give Avatar the last Airbender, a 9.5/10.
My initial thoughts on "Avatar: The Last Airbender" (before watching it) was that it was a decent show for young kids, entertaining at it's best.
Oh my, how wrong was I? It's not just good...it's simply beautiful, altogether epic. For ANYONE who appreciates great story-telling, not just kids.
I never imagined that any animated show could grab my imagination and emotions the way that Avatar did...it's just a testament to what can be achieved with true dedication and labor of love attitude.
Be it the goofy, instantly likable demeanor of Aang, or the caring, friendly and protective charisma of Katara or even the intense embodiment of emotion and self-discovery that is Zuko, each and every character in this show is unique and endearing...it is truly unexpected to find such levels of character depth in a "children's cartoon".
It's been such an amazing Journey, but alas, Avatar has come to it's end after the 3rd season. I just can't get over that!
It is my request to the creators of this show and Nick to seriously consider giving us another final chapter to this amazing saga that has touched the hearts of innumerable fans just like myself.
Please, give us another season at the very least?
All in all, this is a show that will always hold a special place in my heart.
When I first heard and saw commercials for this show. I have to admit, I was not interested in it. I had never watched one episode, yet in my mind, this was just another boring, melodramatic animated show.
Whoever said "don't judge a book by its cover" was absolutely correct. After seeing how popular it was here, I thought maybe I should actually watch the show before making a decision about it. If so many people love it, maybe I'm missing something.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is an amazing program. After I had watched only the first episode, I realized my previous judgment about the show was wrong and irrational. With a great combination of comedy, action and drama, this show is definitely one of my favorites. This is a show I think anyone can enjoy and should watch.
This show its awsome i love the story about the profecy of the Avatar, the savior that combines the four elements to fight against the Fire Nation and their armies
The story its awsome the fight scenes are out-of-this-planet i personally love the Water Tribe all that about the spirit of the moon and all that Avatar: The Last AIrbender its a great show for all ages not just kids people will love it and those who said "Nah too kid-show" or did not see it or they see just an episode Avatar if you want to see it you will see episode after episode so addictive i saw the two books Water and Earth in a week!!! Now im watching Book III: Fire Excelent Show Nickelodion Hands Down 10/10 :):):)
Avatar is probabley my favorite show on television but nickelodeon for some reason just dosent like it.The first two seasons were fine because they showed it every week and old episodes were on everyday but starting with season three everything changed.We all had to wait 9 whole months to see new episodes but for about 8 months there were no episodes of avatar on nickelodeon.The weird thing is that during the third season they promised 10 weeks of avatar but noooo they showed 9 weeks of avatar and had to wait one week to get to mid season!Also on dvds they were showing avatar episodes before they premired!As I said earlier during the 9 month wait there was to trace of avatar on nick whatsoever because they wanted to put new crappy shows on the air.You should agree with me that nickelodeon just dosent like avatar so they try to show it the least they can because they want it demographic.Its like 'hey we have an amazing show in our hands !what should we to with it? Well 7 and 8 year olds dont like it so so lets put new episodes of spongebob on and completely remove avatar from nick!'But sir wouldnt that cost all the fans of avatar and cost us ratings? well we have barnyard and tak! who cares I mean if 7 year olds dont like it than it can be succesful.
Thats what I imagine nick sying and its the same thing with other nick shows.They only show it for like 2 or 3 years and thyre done!I just dont understand nicks way of doing things.I mean fans of avatar just kept getting fed up and started watching it somewhere else!All im trying to say is nick tries to ruin perfect shows so they can come up with new shows that nick dosent give a chance to be popular!
Avatar is my favorite show and now its not on nick anymore which is pretty sad because they just replace it with bad shows.Im sure gonna miss avatar.
This is a great cartoon. I have enjoyed all the characters in it. Grate fore kids and adults. I personally haven't seen all the episodes. I am planning on renting ore buying them. A good show for children. Has good plots and morel values. Keeps kids busy and thinking. Very good entertainment. Must see it for yourself.
Avatar is amazing and its deep. It also has issues that happen in everyday life. This is one fabulous piece of beautiful animation. I love it so much. It's a show everyone should experience no matter how old you are. Is truly beautiful. you must se it.
Hey ppl im a new user and I just finished watching avatar season 3. Avatar is set in the ancient days of the Asia (chinnese i think) and centers around a young boy named Anag who is known as the Avatar and must fulfill he's destiny of destroying the Fire and bringing peace throughout the nations of the Fire, Earth, Water and Air Kingdoms. The ending was however expected therefore taking all the suspense out of the episode. On the other hand the action was quite breathtaking, saving this season from its downfall. Overall the Avatar is a one of the best animation series created in my opinion. Saying no more I would be really pleased if they updated the Avatar to the 21st century, so at least we could be much more familiar with its action and episodes storyline.
In this show there is a boy named Ang that was frozen for 100 years and these two people named Katara and her older brother Sakka found him and Ang deosn't know that he is the Avatar until he learns that he is and he has to find benders to teach him.
Really the show is all about Airbenders, Waterbenders, Earthbenders, and Firebenders but Ang and his friends are the main characters so his friends and him has to defeat the Fire Lord. In the show Ang deosn't know that he is the Last Airbender until he figures out that he is and he has to find Waterbenders, Earthbenders, and a Firebender to teach him all the benders moves to defeat the Fire Lord. The show is very amazing because Ang learns the coolest moves and meets and travels with the best friends anyone can have. The Animation is very amazing and well detailed. So really any kid real love this show if you are a person who likes unrealistic stuff then you should love this show because it is amazing. The only thing that I don't like about is that the show is over with so that is the only reason that I don't like about. So really this show deserves a 10 outta 10.
At first I thought "oh, so it's another American show trying to look like an anime", but soon I realized "Avatar" was much more than an anime-wannabe. Since then, I've been waiting for every new episode.
What do I like about the series? Everything. It starts with the great story, continues with the characters and ends with the well-balanced design.
In the beginning I thought "just another of those great, powerful heroes", but Aang is everything else than a perfect hero. He's growing and learning. He will be very powerful one day, but in the beginning, he's just a kid that's been asleep for a hundred years because it was too afraid to face destiny.
And with every new episode, with every new character introduced, my affection for the series grew. I instantly like Zuko, even though he was still the 'bad guy' in the beginning. He had potential, I thought and was not disappointed. (And I have quite a fondness for Uncle Iroh, because it's so hard to estimate what he'll do next.)
I'm not alone, either, there are quite some people in the forums I visit who like "Avatar" just as much as I do. It's a great series and even though it's animated, it surely isn't 'for kids only'.
There are not enough words to describe the greatness of Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show on so many levels showed what a great cartoon is like and how it can be appreciated by all ages. The animation style was beautiful and a complex story made you want more each time. What seemed at first to be just a story of a kid who was carefree soon turned to a character with great responsibility. The character development was another factor of this show's greatness. You watched characters grow, struggle, and change, giving a more realistic feeling and adding to the likeability of each character. The creators didn't stop there though, they also made it so every little detail or event would prove important later. Things like a gift of a White Lotus tile were never dropped or forgotten but, brought up later. These things, in some cases, left you puzzling 'What could this mean?'.
It is a shame the show is now over but, this show will not soon be forgotten. This is perhaps one of the best cartoons ever and is enjoyed by all ages.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is personally one of my favorite shows in general, but it is my favorite from Nick. I don't normally have interest in anime, but Avatar is a really cool show anyway. There was a lot to it, which made it interesting the whole way through. They had an interesting beggining (where they had first found Aang in the iceberg), and a butt-kicking finale (Sozin's Comet)! Sadly, the series is over (of course, because the finale already aired), and there is still a bit more left to know. But even if it is over, it's still one of my favorites!
Avatar: the Last Airbender is a great cartoon series. Although it mainly focases on kids as an audience, I still enjoy watching it. It has had four seasons I believe, and four movies endin those four seasons. The only problems I have with this show is that there are to many DVDs for the series! There are at the least 2 DVDs for each season. And there all sold seperatley!!! So if I want to watch the show without having to wait through a TV schedule, I have to buy at the least 12 DVDs to watch the whole thing! Over all, It is a great show, that give you cliffhangers every end of the season, asking yourself, "Whats going to happen next?"
Avatar: The Last Airbender is a show about a 12-year-old boy who has been frozen inside an iceberg for 100 years. A waterbender named Katara and a warrior named Sokka found him when they were fishing. There are four elements, Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. There is a war between the Fire Nation and the rest of the world. The Avatar's name is Aang. It is his job to defeat the leader of the Fire Nation, which is Fire Lord Ozai. Aang and his friends will meet many villains along the way, including Prince Zuko, Admiral Zhao, and Princess Azula. They will also meet some allies, like Suki and the Kyoshi Warriors, King Bumi, and a lot more. Their main villain for the first season was Prince Zuko. Admiral Zhao was also a villain of the first season. They both wanted to capture the Avatar so they can win the war. Zuko has an uncle named Iroh that is seen in several episodes throughout the season. Zhao dies at the end of Season 1. In Season 2, Azula is now a main villain. Zuko and Azula are brother and sister. They hate each other so much. Aang and Katara are now master waterbenders and Aang needs an earthbending teacher. He meets Toph. She is a blind earthbender who can even bend metal, but Aang never learned metalbending. At the end of Season 2, Zuko betrayes his Uncle Iroh and he is now a prisoner, Aang gets shot down by Azula's lightning and gets "killed". In Season 3, Aang is alive and everyone in the world thinks he's dead. He mastered earthbending and needs to learn firebending. Zuko betrayes Azula and joins Aang and his friends. At the last episode, Sozin's Comet, a powerful source of firebending that gives firebenders great power, comes. It is Aang vs Ozai and Zuko vs Azula. Aang and Zuko win. The war is over. Aang has always loved Katara and they are now together.
What can I say about this show, I LOVE IT! I've been with this show since the beginning and it's awesome. You the person who's reading ths should watch this show, it has a good plot, character development, a little romance, and it helps you use your imagination a little bit. I suggest you watch it and see for your-self, this show is amazing, Who ever does reas this season 3 is over, but is there a season 4? If you find out ,please tell me. Alot of people agree with me. So as my review comes to an end, let me just say Avatar the Last Airbender ROCKS! By the way my nickname is BlueWaterHigh
