    So I recently got back into Avatar: The Last Airbender. As a kid I loved the show, but I was very surprised to see how well that show holds up over time. I was wondering what ya'lls thoughts were. Here are some talking points
    Favorite Character: Toph. Toph is blind, doesn't care what others think about her, and kind of an asshole, which kind of hits my personality on the nose. Also, metal bending.
    Favorite Line:
    "That's rough buddy"
    Favorite Episode: It has to be either The Blind Bandit or the Western Air Temple, but there are like 30 episodes I could probably watch over and over again.
    Unpopular Opinion: The Great Divide was not a bad episode. That episode does a great job at showing how much smarter and wiser Aang is than his peers.

    Also, Legned of Korra was a good show.

    Anyway, I've already watched both ATLAB and LOK once through, in less than a month. I'm already two thirds of the way through watching ATLAB again.

    Favorite Character: Definitely Zuko. You see a lot of character development out of him throughout the show. I also have a crush on him
    Favorite Line: "Hello!! My name is Joo Dee"
    Favorite Episode: Probably the one where they're in the fire nation and are watching the play about their lives
    Unpopular Opinion: Azula deserved better !!!!!! Poor baby needed some help

    Avatar: The Last Airbender is a small series and managed to create her own universe, I think one of the unique productions the world has seen.
    Favorite Character: Absolutely Katara, she is both a healer and a bloodbender. She is also very beautiful.
    Favorite Line: “Get over here, Zuko. Being part of the group also means being part of group hugs.” ~Katara
    Favorite Episode: Ozai vs Aang / Past of Aang.
    Unpopular Opinion: Ty Lee is the cutest character on the show.
    The Legend of Korra is also a very successful production, but not as good as an Avatar: The Last Airbender.
    Moreover, I recommend those who are curious about what happened to Zuko's mother to read comic books.

    Favorite Character: Zuko, I've always had a soft spot for villains turning good, and he is so well written.
    Favorite Line: "It's so dark down here, I can't see a thing." "Oh no what a nightmare"
    Favorite episode: It's hard to pick, but some of my favorites are 'the day of the black sun' and 'the boiling rock'
    Unpopular opinion: (not sure if this is entirely unpopular, but I've seen a few people thinking otherwise) I don't want a fourth season, atla ended perfectly and the comics are a good form to show what happened after sozins comet (and I just like the comics).

    Edit: I choose the element fire, just because I really like hot drinks and it looks badass, but earth- and waterbending are both super useful and cool too (just make me the avatar without the responsibilities, I just want all elements).

    God tier show.
    Favorite Character: Either Katara, Toph, or Iroh
    Element: Either Water (Healing, Ice, Snow, Plant Matter, Mud, Blood Bending, and Chakra Blocking: What Amon does in LOK)
    or Earth (Rock, Ground, Seismic Sense, Metal, Lava, Sand, Mud, and Water Filtering: Yes, that's a thing)
    Favorite Line: *Insert Iroh line here* *Insert Toph blind joke here*
    Favorite Episode: ... Any that includes the Cabbage Merchant (In all seriousness, probably Sozin's Comet or The Southern Raiders- Katara's a badass in both of these)
    Yes.
    Unpopular opinions:
    - Legend of Korra equals the quality of the first show in multiple aspects.
    - LOK's dark side is better than ATLA's
    - Blood Bending became too much of a plot device in LOK
    - DISCLAIMER: I want everyone to know that I still think the movie is shit.
    There were a few scenes that the movie did better than the show. Very few, but more than zero.
    - It is REALLY FUCKING WEIRD to think that Aang is 12 (yea yea yea, he's technically like 112, but that's even weirder on paper) and Katara is 14 at the end of the show.

    This is what's called the 'popular opinion'

    Linked here I have a recap of the show that is absolutely amazing... as a joke thing to watch.

    This videos are amazing. I waited a long time for the video of the "book three".
    I suggest you watch this video too, it is a bit creepy but well thought out and funny.

    One last addition, i completely forgot this topic. The Movie was literally shit.
    I hope Netflix does a much better job.

    I agree with this alot. Amon was the best villain in both series (LOK and ATLAB). I also thought that Kuvira was a more compelling dictator than Ozai. Zaheer was interesting at times, and irritating at other times. Unalaq was just bad tho.

    Amon and Zaheer are my all time favorite bad guys. Kuvira was alright, I think she just looked more bad-ass because she was constantly at the forefrontg of things where Ozai was more of a power house that stood back and had control behind his generals, not risking himself being at danger.
    Kuvira was the opposite, she took all charge and was her own super soldier and her own best defense.

    Amon was epic though, he left a mark on the planet forever. I just liked how he just did his thing and kept to his word and didn't hesitate on anything because he knew he could achieve his goal no matter what. Take for example the ''execution'' scene from Korra, Lin is asked the question ''Where is Korra'' and Lin being cool as fuck she says ''I won't tell you anything you monster'' Amon just simply accepts this and takes her bending. He feels no need to try to make her talk, becuase like I said He knows he can get what he wants and he doesn't need people in his way.
    He also has my favorite quote ( I have a ton of favorite quotes.. ) where he fights Tarrlok, and he simply goes ''I am the solution''

    Zaheer, mega bad guy man. His sheer will and dedication has kept him alive and made him grow into the mightiest bender on the planet.
    I must say I like this thinking too, obviously that's bad in it's own ways but let's not get into that. He makes very good points and has very powerful quotes and knowledge, if he tried I bet he would have had his own army in a short amount of time because he would have been able to lead easily.

    The first Avatar (Wan) episodes were the most beautiful episodes I have seen throughout the series. I wish I had seen these episodes in The Last Airbender. It would be so much better.

    I think this is true. The bigger reason why I thought Kuvira was more compelling was that she was more than the generic "take over the world because I'm evil" villain that Ozai is. She is trying to get the Earth Kingdom back together, and it's hard not to agree with her when she refused to step down when Prince Woo was supposed to be taking over.

    Amon was like Azula on steroids. Calm, cool, calculated. He had the next 5 moves planned out at all times. That calm confidence made for a terrifying villain. Also, that mask was just awesome.

    I thought Zaheer was interesting at times, and was defiently one of the smarter villains. But, as the show demonstrates in season 4, anarchy is stupid. It only leads to a power vacuum and an even worse dictator appears.
    Still though, if you look at how messed up Korra was after their fight, it was clear that Zaheer had one the more significant impacts on the Avatar.

    Yeah that's the good way to keep them apart.
    I feel like Azula also had that great terrifying calm confidence about her that made her good-bad too.
