  • Aang and the gang travel to the Earth Kingdom city of Omashu. Aang meets a crazy king who kidnapps his friends and puts Aang up to a series of challenges.

    This was a good episode but a little too stupid and weird for my taste. The beginning was laughable and its funny how dumb those guards were not to notice Aang was a kid. When the kids go in they start trouble at the mail postage system. Very cool and very unique. This was a great idea and it shows how bending is a way of life and how much its relied on in certain civilzations. Finally Aang gets sent to the King for their punishment of ruining the city... and cabages. The king is loony, and a bit too loony for me. I found him funny and annoying at the same time. I liked how there was just silence after the king said jokes. The crazy old man then kidnapps Aangs friends. Aang first goes through a challege of getting the earthkings key. It was sort of stupid for Aang to lose the ladder at first, i know hes only 12 but come on, hes smarter than that. The challenge of getting Flopsy was only good for a short giggle not much to laugh about and not all too entertaining. The final part was very clever. Boomy let Aang choose who he wanted to fight, instead of picking the scary guys Aang chose the king....

    "Wrong. Choice"

    That was a very amazing battle and i like how Aang techically didnt win. It showed how powerful earthbending can be. As an introudction to earthbending episode it was very satisfying. The end was just more of the king being loopy and it turned out to be Aang old time friend, it wasnt too hard to figure out either since you could tell from Aangs previous flashback. This episode was fun and entertaining, but i think Aang took a stupid pill before he went to Omashu...
