Description

Avatar: Season 3 — Fire promises to be the most exciting season yet! Aang wakes up from his battle with Azula to discover that Ba Sing Se has fallen and the world thinks he's dead. So he and his friends set off undercover across the Fire Nation to find Firelord Ozai before the Day of Black Sun. However, Princess Azula, who is always one step ahead, spoils the invasion plans and forces the gang to flee. Meanwhile, Prince Zuko returns home as the triumphant son, but soon finds the honor he so greatly craved from his father is worthless. New alliances are formed and Team Avatar forges a new plan to stop the Firelord. But will they find him in time?

Customer Reviews

One of the best shows on television, period.

Let me start off by saying that I'm 42, I have a PhD, and I love Avatar. Not just because my son also loves it, but because it is an incredibly well done show. The plots, character development, the interwovenness of the stories with one another; all make the show excellent. As time as gone on in the Avatar universe, we've seen the incipient romance between Aang and Katara develop, the mistrustful and competitve relationship between Aang and Sokka grow into brotherhood, and Aang learn to accept his duty with determination and honor. We've also gotten to see how Zuko has matured from a hot headed teenager into a thoughtful young man, how Azula has gone from a merely malicious kid to a truly devious and evil Machiavellian witch. These are not the kinds of things you see in some cheap kids show just made to bilk advertisers for their money by wasting Saturday morning air-time. What's more, we repeatedly see the characters tackle complex and difficult decisions, choices between love and hate, acceptance vs judgment, things that are easy but wrong agains those that are difficult but right... I don't ever remember seeing a kid's show that tackles these kinds of issues with its characters, and still leaves them with the complexity and reality they truly have. In Avatar, no character is purely good, no character is purely evil (except maybe Azula). We get to see the full range of their motivations, hopes, and fears. The animation is excellent as well. Not pure anime, but not simple cartoons either. It blends three dimensional effects, anime, and traditionally storyboarded animation into a unique whole that distinctintly sets it apart. Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of those rare gems that comes along only once in a great while. I cannot recommend it enough, for both kids, and adults.

Avatar is Back and Better Than Ever

Finally, we have been graced by the return of television's most anticipated animated program. It was long in coming, but I'm sure all of the Avatar fans out there are rejoicing. I remember watching seasons one and two all throughout middle school, and now that I've begun high school, I have to admit that I'm even more excited than I ever was in the past. Season three picks up just where season two left off, and almost immediately it sets the stage for what will most likely be the most thrilliing (and potentially last) season yet. Avatar is in many ways an ideal show. It contains several of the traits that make a program very enjoyable to watch: a phenomenal plot, deep and fascinating characters, beautiful animation, and a viewer-friendly sense of action and humor. So whether you're a high school athelete, a middle-aged soccer mom, or an energetic kid, Avatar has something for you. Bravo, Nickelodeon. Bravo.

Couldn't get much better than this

One of Avatar's leading problems is that the story has the stigma of being an 'American' anime attached to it. This assessment, however, falls far short of the actual nature of the show. The creators have blended the stereotypical anime-based 'hero's journey,' which involves an unlikely hero and a group of friends on a journey with a time-limit (the eclipse, in Avatar's case); and a very American style of storyboarding and cartooning that blows most other cartoons on television out of the box. Combine that with strong voice-acting and a brilliant plot and you’ve got the most anticipated animated-television release of the year. Avatar's plot has grown in leaps and bounds since the rather poor first season of the show, but it is this season's opener and the season two episode, 'City of Walls and Secrets' that really spell out that Avatar is a show written for several different levels of understanding. There is the children's level of the story, which the light comedy of Aang, Sokka and Momo's antics and brilliant one-liners, that ignores the far deeper implications of many of the situations the characters find themselves in. The adult storyline has reference to great works of literature, such as George Orwell's 1984, and a great many historical analogies that make the situation of the central cast seem all the more dire. The consequences of war, the barriers of poverty, and the misinterpretation of history are all prevalent themes of this story; along with the continual theme of how war can destroy families. Sokka and Katara’s father has been missing-in-action since the first season and his leaving for war and the psychological effect it had on his children is a very prevalent theme throughout the story. The plot of the third season deals with Aang and the Gang's adventures behind enemy lines within the Fire Nation itself - but I strongly urge people to catch up on last season before they start on this one - as it won't make much sense if you don't. Too much happened in the last season for one to be able to just jump into the story at 'The Awakening'.
