I don’t think I’ve ever done an entire point to say this outright, but Avatar: The Last Airbender is the greatest animation show of all time, without question. It’s beautifully animated, thoughtfully written, and has a plot that should interest any fan of good sci-fi/fantasy. It’s not just another anime, and it’s not just for kids, despite airing on Nickelodeon. It’s a phenomenal show, and one of my favorites of all time, animated or otherwise.
Now, you too can share in the magic that is Avatar: The Last Airbender. Nickelodeon has the ENTIRE series online for your viewing pleasure. It’s three seasons long, and if you have remotely good taste in TV, you should enjoy every minute of it. The Last Airbender has a sequel series called The Legend of Korra which just wrapped up half of it’s first season this week, and it’s nearly as good as the original. Now’s as good a time as any to get on the train, as you can watch all four seasons together without having to wait years like the rest of us.
Check it out here, and if I made any converts after you give it a shot, please do let me know. It would make my day. Give it at least four episodes to take. And never watch the abominable M. Night Shyamalan movie.
