Or is it just that introduction?

What about the bad? Well, it's early, and I'm trying not to be blinded by the pretty animation. But I hope the writers expand on the reasons why Ang "disappeared" and why his powers "flare up" the way they do.
In case anyone's interested about the staff behind AVATAR, here's a recent article posted to AWN:

I saw two episodes this weekend. The one with the girl warriors with the fans and the one where the village of airbenders is forbidden to use their powers by the fire people. Both were really good. I set my Tifaux to record all the episodes. I hope the Avatar makes it to the North Pole.

They don't advertise it enough.

I'm pretty sure this is the closest American animation will ever get to Anime and I likes it!

This show is completely out of left field. It's the second one I've seen to sucessfully blend Eastern and Western animation for children's television (the other being Teen Titans). And surprise, surprise, Nickelodeon has it. Though epic quests and hand-to-hand combat have long been a staple of such shows, it's the first time I've seen it on Nick. It's a nice change.
Does anyone know where I can find a character list? I'm having a lot of trouble keeping the names straight, particularly the girl Water Bender and the Prince Fire Bender straight. (Prince Zuko? Prince Suko?)
Speaking of the Prince - it's a lot of fun to watch him fight. This is the first time I've seen someone directing elemental powers through their feet.

My personal favorite episode was with the crazy earth-bending king. Gotta love the quicksand move he did with his feet, and taking the prisoners to the "refurbished room that used to be the bad room"
Don't ever want to see Uncle Airo in the bath anymore, though.
BTW, from below, Abba looks like a big flying caterpillar. Yip-yip!

My nieceís birthday is coming up and my sister was hoping to get some Avatar merchandise for her. (Dolls, tapes, books, anything). I have looked around, but canít find anything. Do any of you have any ideas or sources? Is someone taping who would be willing to "tape swap" with me? Please?
ETA: After all my research, I am starting to get desperate. And, something happened with *both* episodes I tried to tape last night. If anyone has a tape of the shows/marathon they would be willing to share, I would really appreciate it. I will pay for the tape, s+h and your trouble. Thanks!! If it helps you understand, my I talked to my niece on the phone last night. She is almost 3. She kept saying that "my aunt jade is getting me an avatar doll." Her mom tried to explain that it might not happen. But, she is 3. Anyway, if there is a tape, that would help. Thanks again.
Also, tvtome has a pretty good description and character guide for the show. It includes news items, a broadcast schedule and a links to either watch or listen to the opening theme.

I tried to tape the episode on Sunday and the power went off *again*. So, it was a bust for me for all 3 episodes that aired this weekend.
I really need help. If you have the episodes on tape, could you let me know if you would be willing to share? If you don't want to make a copy, I would be willing to do that for you. I could even edit out the commercials, etc. and send you that copy as well as the original back. I am willing to pay for the tapes, all S+H and your time.
So it doesn't just seem like I am begging for help and not contributing anything:

Ah, well. Hopefully I'll stumble across them sooner or later. Or, failing that, keep on trying until they decide to release a DVD many years from now.

But I'm ready for the Avatar to start training with fire and earth and water more.

I'm waiting for Zuko to yell, "@%#! this!" and go join the happy little Avatar group. (With his uncle trailing after and reprimanding, "Watch your language!") After all, where else is Ang going to pick up Firebending skills?
I also expect Prince Zuko to realize that his efforts to win back his father's love just aren't going to work

It's so rare that Nick puts on something cool that I can't stop geeking out about this show.
Word. But as previousely stated, I just hope they don't cancel it before it's finished. That would ultimately suck.
Posted Aug 30, 2005 @ 10:28 PM
Hot, actually. Sorry, couldn't resist. :)
That would be cool.
So, I can guess where the Firebending comes in, but I'm wondering about Earth. So far the group has only interacted with two Earthbenders (Ang's old friend (literally), and the kid in episode where the Fire Nation was enslaving Earthbenders.) In fact, Earth is the only major element without a regular representative in the show, which I find odd. Anyone else curious about this?
Also, anyone know which Book is coming next?
