The Avatar short after the episode was better than the episode itself. That was funny as h--l!
It wasn't really all bad; I thought it was okay, just the Doc/Shu guy was infuriating. I can't believe they actually revealed Katara. I figured she was going to keep it secret so she could help other people around the Fire Nation too.
@puresimplicity: I agree it would have been more realistic to have been thrown out. And they both were helping the people of the town. Maybe it was showing other nations have more hate towards the Fire Nation for what they are doing, but I still see your point and concur wholeheartedly.

Well I just do not get why she had to destroy the entire factory. That was kind of stupid thinking, all she had to do was create a seperate section of the river using earthbending and waterbending for the polluted water to go to. Then everyone would have been happy.
Wow. I really hope baa-chan (my friend from school) was able to see this.
I cannot get over how awesome Katara was in this episode. She's so noble, not to mention super powerful. How can you not have oodles of respect for her? Not to mention how 133t she looks in her Painted Lady grab. Gosh, I really want her outfit now...
There was some excellent comedy in this epsiode, and not just from Sokka. Dock/Shu/Whatshisname were funny, at least at the beginning. By the third brother, it was wearing a little thin. My favorite quote of all was, "Maybe we could clean the river!"
Filler much? Only three episodes into the season and already we have a filler?! How sad.
Overall, I believe I hated most about this episode was its complete lack of a plot and it's total predicitability. I guess it was so predictable that it wasn't predicitable. I kinda liked the whole Shu - Dok bit, but it was too predictable in the end. I could have at least have stood them having a second brother pop out of nowhere, but nooooo, it just had to be so predictable that even AANG could predict it.
Very sad, especially for the dramatic preview. No plot twists whatsoever...very unlike Avatar.
I think the best thing about this episode was that it showed conflict within the group and within Katara...her conscience was leading her to do something that perhaps wasn't the wisest strategic move, as Sokka pointed out...nice characterization, I think...
I agree, too, that Toph was great in this one...
I'm really looking forward to next week's epi, though...Sokka looks like he's going to take some serious punishment...but afterwards, I'm sure he'll be doling it out...
