That being said, some of them didn’t get the respect they deserve, whether it was their live-action portrayal being a shadow of their animated self (General Grievo...

The Two Episodes That Transformed ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ From a Good Show Into a Great One

When Avatar: The Last Airbender debuted on Nickelodeon in 2005, there were no signs to indicate it was anything other than a silly kid’s cartoon beyond its richly imaginative world and the painstaking research that went into preserving the east and southeast Asian cultural influences.
