Really for everyone

"Some of the kids in my daughters school started showing up with blue arrows on their foreheads, so I asked what it meant, being the dumb grownup that I am. Avatar, was the answer, and one of the other children brought a copy the next day for "everyone" (me, my wife and our daughter) to watch. Now I have never shrunk from watching endless repeats of Finding Nemo, or Cars, but I was not prepared for the Avatar phenomenon. It drew me right in and has held my attention though each episode, and I sometimes think I like it more than my own daughter likes it. There is nothing not to like about this series and it is truly for every age group, which is pretty amazing.
One of the other parents I know passed on Avatar, without watching any, claiming it was too violent, too much war, blah, blah. In fact, it is about a world at war, and a very long war. And there is some violence, although I do not believe a single character has been killed, nor has anyone shed blood. There have not been any moments when my daughter felt too frightened to watch. And it is really not about war but about being redeemed from war. The Avatar, a young boy, is trying to stop the war and save the world. But it is not namby pamby about showing some pretty hard fought battles and the creators have clearly done some intensive studying on the different martial arts styles. Anyway, the stories are all great and you should become addicted too, just like me."

"THe final episodes of Season 2 were just wonderful. A bit disappointed in what Zuko did, but then you can;t have a story without twists and turns."
LOVE AVATAR SERIES

"I LOVE THE AVATAR SERIES FOR THE MOST PART. THE SECOND SEASON IS MY LEAST FAVORITE (NOT REALLY SURE AS TO WHY THOUGH). THIS SEASON HAS SOME GREAT EPISODES IN IT AND IS A MUST HAVE IF YOU'VE WATCHED ANY OF THE AVATAR AND ENJOY IT. I ALSO RECCOMEND THE OTHER TWO SEASONS THE THIRD IS MY FAVORITE MOSTLY DUE TO HOW EVERYTHING TIES TOGETHER AND THE INTERESTING TWISTS THAT WE MAY HAVE SEEN COMING BUT HAD NO IDEA OF HOW THEY WOULD GET THERE. SO ENJOY THE SERIES AND ALL THE SUSPENSE AND ACTION OF THEM."
