Avatar is the best cartoon ever! It deals with complex things, such as redemption and honor, but simplifies it so it is easier to understand. I said simplify, not dumb down like most kid shows do. This show is great for all ages. I'm 14 and I've been watching Avatar since I was 7. All my friends watch and I even got my mother obsessed! Avatar rocks! I can't wait until The Legend of Korra comes out. Those creators are genius.
This show is really great my cusins and I used to wake up every sunday morning or whenever and watch the new episodes. It was a really great show. There was a little bit of every thing in it, fighting,romance,heart worming scene, and epic scens! I looked every where on the internet to see all of the episodes at one place without commerciles. And I did HERE at motionempire.com. I just love the idea of this show that you can bend water and turn it into ice and that you can like breath fire. you just need to watch a few episodes. (for give me if i missspelled anything im not a good spleller and this is my first review about a show)
