sg1man said:I voted other, because despise was not near enough strong of a word. This episode cast me into depression, sending my life into a bleak pit of misery and choas. THIS EPISODE WAS DESPICABLY AWFULLY GROTESQUELY HORRIBLE!!!!! Few, got that out. Why do I hate it? So moany reasons! It was full of crappy teenage drama, dumb jokes, soap opera emotions and emotional outbursts, and everyone seemed out of character, except the old ladies. This show really seemed like more of a soap opera than avatar. Horrible.
Actually, that's what I found so amusing about this episode. It's not because I like the OOCness of it, the teenage drama, the dumb jokes, and even those soap opera emotional outbreaks. It's because I feel that all these OOC craze scenes are making fun of the actual OOC that you would find other shows that show these kind of stuff intentionally. >_>
As for my opinion of the episode, as I said in the non-spoiler review, I enjoy for what it is. I can't really love it but I can't dislike it either. It shows how messed up the royal family can be...except for Zuko who is the good one (obviously). He only has anger problems for a good reason. Everyone else's reasons are more for their own gain. Ty Lee, circus. Azula, enjoys being a monster so she can be easily dominant but doesn't know how to deal with other people that well. She also doesn't know a difference between right and wrong. Mai, refuses to express herself and prefers to be dull. At least, Zuko shouts his anger and gets it out of his system. I wish the Aang gang scenes were longer but since they are only the B-group of the episode, I understand the time constraint of fitting them in. Although, if Avatar started off with 26 episodes per season, I bet there will be more scenes that take their time.
Plotting and planning 20 episodes isn't easy to squeeze everything in so I give kudos to M&B for trying their best. ^___^
