I'd buy that. \o/

Yeah, you're right on about all the telling instead of showing crap.

I feel like they're trying to make Mako a jerk because in season 1 of ATLA, Zuko was a jerk, and then he got progressively better as the series went on. But then I have no idea how much, if anything, they changed when they found out they were getting a second season. If they did all this on the assumption that they only had one season to work with, that's even worse.

I suppose in a weird way, that in and of itself is kind of an Equalist thing... EVERYONE becomes the ultimate master of their element. @__@ Still think it's lame and boring.

See, I was always kind of in the cranky camp about Aang and the Lion Turtle. We actually got to SEE HIS FRIGGIN' BENDING TRAINING, which was good. And I will grant that instead of running away and hiding from being the Avatar like he did pre-series, he faced off against Ozai, which was good character progress. But he only did so after he got assured that he could do it without killing him. He went from person to person and past life to past life, and if they gave him an answer he didn't want to hear, he dismissed them and got a second/third/fourth/etc. opinion, until someone told him what he wanted to hear. Don't get me wrong - I feel like taking Ozai's bending WAS the best solution; I don't really advocate killing at all. But it would have been nice to have more BUILD UP to it instead of it just showing up out of nowhere in the very last episode. And then there was the whole chakras thing, where he was supposed to let go of his love for Katara for the sake of his duty as the Avatar and didn't do it and everything managed to turn out hunky dory anyway. I'm glad he found love but it's just kind of one of those things where it's like, why bring that up if you're not going to make it actually AFFECT something? (Correct me if I'm wrong here; I'm a little hazy on some of the ATLA details cuz it's been so long.)
