Alright, I’m hoping we have some readers here that are fans of both Avatar: The Last Airbender AND Futurama, as knowledge of both is really required to get this joke. See, in the show, they bend elements, and in Futurama the robot’s name is…nevermind, either you’ll either get it or you won’t.
Anyway, I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you that if you haven’t seen it already, you MUST watch The Last Airbender, as it’s simply the greatest animated show I’ve ever seen. Yes, I realize it’s a Nickelodeon original, but trust me, it’s that damn good, and even has me excited for the Shyamalan movie.
I just finished it a few weeks ago, and I’m probably going to write a whole column about its greatness, but before I do that, watch the show for yourself so you can agree with me when the time comes.
Contrastingly, I could never really get into Futurama…
