I’m going to be devoting a full month to Avatar and I hope I don’t have to explain to why. In terms of animated children’s series this show is about as good as it gets. It’s a classic, and an uncontroversial one, a show whose excellence rests not on being groundbreaking or having a unique premise, but on just doing everything a good TV show should do and doing it really, really well. Top notch animation, great characters, compelling story, phenomenal action, stupendous voice acting and Mako. Every show should have Mako.
I must be foaming at the mouth to review this, right? Right?
Slight problem. Consider the following facts.
- Avatar is a beloved classic with a fanatically loyal fanbase.
- I love Avatar.
- I have been asked to review the Season 2 Episode Tales of Ba Sing Se.
- Tales of Ba Sing Se is one of the most beloved episodes of Avatar.
Right, well, this all looks very promising I’m sure there’s not one final bullet point that’s going to blow it all…
- I really do not like Tales of Ba Sing Se.
Dang. Okay, ready your scalpels folks.
