This is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. :D
It aired for three seasons on Nickelodeon. Now, you can watch it Monday through Thursday from 5:30 to 7:00 on Nicktoons. The best part is that it has "extras". :) Little tidbits of information on the series: recaps, behind-the-scenes, and the occasional humorous commentary.
Avatar is an animated television series created and produced by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. It's set "in an Asian-influenced world of Chinese martial arts and elemental manipulation."" The show blended "the styles of anime and US domestic cartoons."
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF AVATAR (No... *sigh*... not Pandora...)
In a world where people can manipulate one of the four elements (Water, Earth, Fire, and Air), the Avatar is the one who can control all four elements. He/she is also responsible for keeping balance between the four nations: Water Tribes (North and South), Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and Air Nomads. The Avatar is born into the next element in the cycle. He/she learns their natural element first, and then learns them in order. For example, Avatar Roku was from the Fire Nation, so he was a firebender. When he turned 16, the Fire Sages told him that he was the next Avatar. So, he master Fire, Air, Water and Earth. In that order.
100 years ago, Fire Lord Sozin used the power of a comet, later renamed Sozin's comet, to get rid of the Air Nomads, knowing that the next Avatar would be an airbender, starting the war.
Present day... (Northern Water Tribe)
Katara and her brother Sokka are fishing. Sokka annoys Katara. Not a big deal, right?
Well, she's a waterbender and their in the water. She's not good or anything (yet...), but she's so frustrated that she causes a giant wave. The ice around the small boat crushes it and Katara and Sokka jump off. They notice a strange blue light coming from underneath the ocean. An iceberg emerges and Katara sees a person in it. She runs toward it and uses Sokka's weapon (forgot what it was...) to break open the iceberg.
Out of the iceberg comes... Aang and Appa!!!
However, the Fire Nation is nearing victory in the war... Did all the aribenders disappear? Who is the Avatar? Is he still around?
And will he save the world?
But we're only getting started....
So to find out how it ends... YOU GOTTA WATCH THE TV SERIES!!!!!
It's really cool and interesting and amusing and entertaining.... :)
So, be a smart little duck and go watch AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER!!!!!
