Well patty, I'm something of an expert of Avatar =D as a Diehard fan I know almost everything there is to know about its lore and background so any questions can be directed to me, and I'll do my best to answer them with as least spoilers as can be had.
Also sorry about the thingie with the season 1 finale with Korra =(
Also HOW DARE YOU START AN AVATAR THREAD WITHOUT ME? T_T
The blue people movie sucked.
The Last Airbender movie sucked too, but that's not relevant, as you know. :P
I don't even get WHY would Cameron win the rights to the word "Avatar".
Here is a fun fact: In his entire 3 hour movie they only say the word "Avatar" a grand total of 3 TIMES
The movie could had easily been called "Pandora" or "The Na'vi" and nobody would had given a damn. On this show however, the word Avatar is central and core to the entire plot, so why would Cameron win every right to the word Avatar is simply baffling. Me thinks lots of $_$ were involved in him getting away with the word.
Ohh well, at least I'm not from the US, thus over here the show (Both the original and the sequel) are called as they should. Avatar: The Legend of Aang and Avatar: The Legend of Korra.
And please, the less we talk about that blaspheming butcher called Shyalaman-ding-dong the better.
I have a question, actually. How old is Firelord Ozai supposed to be? I know he's younger than Iroh, but he looks like he could be Iroh's son
rather than his younger brother. Did he just bathe in virgin blood/is a descendant of Gwen Stefani or...
Heh, Ozai is 40 years old, whereas Iroh is pushing past 60. So yes, they have an age where Iroh could had easily been Ozai's father. My guess is that their father (Firelord Azulon) got genre savvy. His elder son Iroh was leading a war against the earth kingdom and he wanted another heir to the throne just in case Iroh died.
Katara's too nice for Zuko. :( I shipped him and the Earth Kingdom villager who helped him but then he stole from her and I was like YOU'RE WORSE THAN AZULA BECAUSE AT LEAST SHE EMBRACES HER HORRIBLENESS!
Caps were completely
Really, I would prefer him with anyone besides Mai... ugh, I hated her since her early appearances...
Why? ='( everyone always hates emo girls.
Wasn't there another girl from the Earth Kingdom he ended up meeting? But then she never showed up again, or he got into a fight with Jet, or something?
Nope, he only ever met 2 girls in the Earth Kingdom. There was that one who invited him to eat and he ended up stealing her ostrich-horse, and there was Jin, with whom he had one date. That's it. One thing about zuko is that he simply doesn't know how to be around girls. I imagine that having a sister like AZULA would make any man intimidated by women, so I can't really blame him for acting like a dork around other girls.
However, while I do hate Mai, I <3 Ty Lee. And I most certainly love Toph.
Ty Lee was awesome, but Toph is the MISTRESS OF THE UNIVERSE.
Here is another Fun Fact: In the latin american dub of the show, I hated the voice for everyone, the actors simply weren't as good as their english counterparts, but with toph (And only toph) that was the exception. Latin!Toph is even more tough, even more badass, and even more awesome than English!Toph.
I can't imagine the shipping wars when it was first airing.
They were so bad even the creators joined in xD.
I'm not kidding, on one convention they spent over 30 minutes inventing names for EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLE COUPLE IN THE ENTIRE SHOW. And I mean every single combination imaginable, including Aang's Staff+Sokka's Boomerang.
You think shipping was bad on Harry Potter? pfft, you haven't seen just how bad it can get here xD.
Korra is alright, but nowhere near as good, imo...
o_O nowhere near as good? dude we could never find a more worthy successor if we tried. Korra is simply THE BEST sequel you could possibly imagine for a show as epic as ATLA.
I was afraid it would not live up to the standards set by its predecesor, I was wrong. Boy I was wrong. In animation alone, the quality took a serious jump in quality. That's not even mentioning the fights (Shorter but just as awesome) and dialog.
The pacing could had been better, which is why I'm so sad it was just 12 episodes, why couldn't nick allow them to do 20? Avatar is easily their star show, it should be given the love it deserves, if they can authorize a billion episodes of lesser shows like "The fairy godparents" or "Jimmy Neutron" why not Avatar?
Also I wonder if Zuko taught others the sun warriors way of fire bend or if he let them keep bending with anger and hate?
Tsk tsk, spoilers bro' spoilers. Not everyone knows who those are, so use spoiler tags.
And I'm guessing he did, because in the first show:
Only rage could fuel Firebending, and maybe this is the reason lightning bending was so rare. In the sequel, lightning-bending is so common, its used by menial workers to produce electricity at powerplants.
Just saying, Ty Lee's boobs are fabulous.
Yep they are.
Another fun fact:
Ty Lee's DDs are the largest on the show + Ty Lee is the strongest non-bender in the show = Makes total sense and its completely related.
Just saying, Ty Lee's boobs are fabulous.
Lol, seen the beach episode yet?
That's what I'm on at the minute.
"Yes! We have defeated you for all time! You will never rise from the ashes of your shame and humiliation!"
Azula's @#$%^iness is also fabulous. I can't hate her even though I hate her. /makes sense.
Now you see why she's the most awesome villain of all times?
From that very same episode, my favorite scene is when she kisses that boy, and then tries her way of seduction:
"You and I will be the most powerful couple in the entire world................. (Proceeds to create 2 gigantic pillars of blue fire) AND WE WILL DOMINATE THE EARTH
The guy's reaction is just priceless.
