A lot of great characters but Sokka and Toph were my favorite heroes. Azula my favorite villain! So intimidating!

Iroh was my personal favorite. But Toph is right up there with him, and Sokka was awesome too. The entire cast was great. 
And Azula, as I grew up and got older, the more and more I started to like her as a character. She's definitely still as intimidating as ever, but now I actually feel sorry for her and feel she got the short end of the stick when it came to her family. Specifically in regards to her mother.

It's pretty good. I've watched it twice. Kinda weird ... I remember so much about it but I don't really ever think about it a lot.



I love it. Azula and Katara are my favorites, mainly Azula though. I hate Aang though. Don't really have a favorite season. I'm glad I caught this show when it was airing for the first time. Definitely played a role in my childhood.

I watched Korra and really liked it. Season 2 was trash but the other three were good. Korra needed more episodes each season. The 12 or 13 episodes wasn't doing it any favors. ATLA felt more fleshed out because they had so much time to flesh it out. Korra didn't have the chance really. I also think people are way too harsh on Korra. It had flaws but man people nitpicked the hell out this show. Some people were just plain sexist about it too. Just becuase Korra was a female some people claimed the show was highly feminist which I never got any vibes from. I guess people can't stand female main characters.

ATLA is definitely one of the best Western cartoons.

I agree with you on Korra. Since it was the sequel series to the original, it was going to be viewed under a tense microscope and anytime it did something it would always be compared to the ATLA first and foremost.  And in a number of instances that would be unfair to Korra because it tries to go for its own direction on things while trying to stay true to the characters and the world. For the most part, I thought it did it’s job very well. Like I said before, it was still pretty good despite its flaws.

Love the animated show, watched it all the way through 3 times, hopefully this live-action show will turn out much better than the movie did. The fact that it's a show instead of a movie is already good news, the movie felt overly condensed, that won't be a problem with a show. The involvement of the original creators gives me hope that it will turn out well.

Just finished watching the entire series on Bluray.

It has aged like fine wine. I think I enjoyed more as an adult than I did as a kid, because I can understand some of the themes, messages, and characters on a higher level. (Some of Iroh's wisdom actually makes sense to me now!)

I got it for $30 plus tax at Best Buy. For those of you who are looking for something to buy on Bluray for yourself to enjoy or if you have kids and you want something you can all watch and enjoy together: Get Avatar: the Last Airbender!!

BUMP

Now that Imbalace Part 3 just came out a few days ago and have been reading that. Does anybody read the comics that take place after the show?

If you like the comics, I highly recommend you pick up the Library Editions.  The art really pops in the oversized hardcover format, and the price is quite reasonable.
