Tag: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Get ready Avatar: The Last Airbender fans, as Nickelodeon has announced they're bringing the complete series to DVD in one box set this October for only $30. It's a ridiculously good deal for this animated goodness.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the best TV shows ever made. Despite being essentially a children's show, The Last Airbender was almost perfect in every regaurd; the characters were likeable and well thought out, the action was amazing, the plot was intense and thoughtful, and the overall tone of the show was pitch perfect, featuring some of the finest episodes of television I've ever seen. In my opinion, TLA is the closest this generation might get to a Star Wars-esque trilogy...it's just that wonderful. So with all that in mind, I went into The Legend of Korra quite hopeful. As a sequel to the original story, things could go south pretty fast (ala The Prequel Trilogy). But I had hope in creators Michael Dante Di Martino and Bryan Konietzko (the two co-creators of TLA) to deliver something that could live up to the origanal's glory. Do the first two episodes of the show promise that...or, lord forbid, does it foreshadow another Phantom Menace? Find out what we think in our review of the show's first two episodes.
