    Avatar....The Last Airbender...any fans here ?.

    Hi yawll.

    ive searched the forums and i can't find any posts on this subject...im surprised.

    ''Avatar ,the last airbender'' is a series on nickelodeon. it is split into 3 books ''Water , Earth and Fire'' . each book has 20 episodes.

    here is more info ,
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar:_The_Last_Airbender

    it is aimed at the 7+ age group but has a very wide audience.
    I (@ 36yrs young ;-) ) am a major fan.

    it all started when i watched an episode from book 1 (water) with my 7 yr old daughter called ''The blue spirit'' . something grabbed me right there. i had seen bits and pieces of episodes before then but never really put it together.

    the plot and story are very well written and the character building is excellent.

    i have always been a major fan of the origonal starwars trilogy but i feel that the last films did no justice to the story line, Avatar is a lot more complete and a hell of a lot more intresting imho.

    i have seen all the episodes up to book 3 episode 13 ''The firebending masters'' and i am so itching for the final 7 episodes to be shown.

    there is so much in the story that i want to see resolved and see how the show deals with some subjects. i dont really want to go into some of my theories on why certain questions are in the story as they may be spoilers to other's who may start watching the series , but one thing i am very intrested in see'ing resolved is this , in book 1 ,ep 20 '' The siege of the north, part 1'' ,when aang goes to the spirit world to see the face stealer choww (might be wrong name but its close) ,,how has choww got the face of the blue spirit ?. for people who are familiar with the series they will know that the blue spirit is a major character in the early episodes. i do not want to go into this question more here because i do not want any spoilers to the plot of the story to any future viewers.

    anyhowzz ...... is there any fans here ?.

    joner.

    OHH , and toph rockzz.

    It's a great show. I like watching it with the kids. Better than the Disney crap they usually wanna watch. Also, it gives them a sense of Shawscope, for people with short attention spans.

    ^ Word!
    I'm 35 and am very much into Avatar...in fact, I've been thinking about writing Nickelodeon and telling them off for not having any new episodes!

    I've not been this much into an animated series since Aeon Flux from LiquidTV...some of the most profound Nietzsche-esque parables/proverbs/morals/etc. came out of Trevor Goodchild's mouth. God(s) I miss that show!!

    Light in the absence of eyes illuminates nothing. Visible forms are not inherent in the world, but are granted by the act of seeing. Though the world and events do exist independent of mind, they obtain of no meaning in themselves: none that the mind is not guilty of imposing on them. I bid my people follow, and like all good equations, they follow; for full endowment of purpose, they do submit - in turn, they resign me to a role inhuman, impossible, and unaccountable. - Trevor Goodchild

    Peter Chung also did a short series of animated flix called Reign about Alexander the Great - *very* cool, but after the first episodes (DVD1), they lost the voice of Trevor Goodchild for Aristotle...shame, really - there's just something commanding, soothing and beautiful about his tonality, verbiage and articulation of words...

    Very good show. However, I'm pissed because I have been waiting since January for a new episode.

    It's one of the first cartoons I've been watching again since Bucky o' Hare. I tell you Avatar is Awesome, can't wait for the last season either. I think it's a very good thought out concept. The different worlds and weapons are awesome!

    start at the start and watch ''book 1 ,water . the boy in the iceberg'' .

    just give it a chance and you will start to get a feel for the story.

    there are plenty of websites that show the whole series.

    theres lots of stuff to look at and give you an idea of the style of cartoon,

    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=avatar&search_type=

    heres a good 1 ,
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDoZPIRB8z8

    and another ( wow i didnt realise that mark hamill was this character,,,and im not gona say who the carachter is, youll have to watch to find out ..hehe )
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9cocx7Srk0

    there are lots of sites to watch all the episodes online , search for '' watch avatar '' and you will get lots of hits.

    there is a wiki link in my 1st post to give you a more indept idea of the story.

    its a cartoon with enough to keep even the hardest adult critique entertained and a lot to think about because of the dept of the story and the constant little cogs in the story that only engage as the story progresses and matures.

    there are 55 25minute episodes to date ,so there is plenty to watch.
