Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

Anyone else notice the similarities between the closing of The Avatar: The Last Airbender and the closing of Reboot?  Both shows finish up with a recap done as a play with the main characters watching.

Have to admit that I love how “professional” the singers are with folks falling down all over the place, the background being rolled too far, etc.

edit: You can find lyrics for the video here: Reboot Recap lyrics.

Watch Avatar 317 Book 3 Chapter 17: Ember Island Players

avatar-the-last-airbender.jpgWell, it’s the opening few minutes of it.  Looks like it was filmed at a convention of some sort.  There wasn’t any information attached to the video.  The video is rather poor as well as the audio but you should be able to understand it. 

I think it’s funny.

edit: It appears to be from a showing at New York Comic Con.

reedit: Replaced it with a (much) better version of the video.

This morning we have episode #2 from the second season of Avatar: the Cave of Two Lovers.

Description: On their way to Omashu, Aang, Katara, and Sokka meet a group of nomads who show them a shortcut through the “Cave of Two Lovers.” But when the group becomes trapped in the cave, it’s up to Aang and Katara to save the group by trusting in love … and possibly questioning their relationship. Meanwhile, Iroh gets a lethal rash so Zuko and Iroh head to a small Earth Kingdom town for help, hoping their
real identities will not be discovered.

And with this post, we start season #2 of Avatar: the Last Airbender. This season is entitled Book Two: Earth and we state with the first episode, The Avatar State.

If you need the player for these videos, be sure to grab it from the DivX website.

Description: After leaving the North Pole, Aang and the group travel to
an Earth Kingdom military base to receive an escort to Omashu, so Aang
can learn Earthbending from King Bumi. The general there reveals a
surprising plan, suggesting that Aang trigger the Avatar State to
defeat the Fire Lord immediately. Meanwhile, Zuko’s sister Azula says
that the Fire Lord will pardon both him and Iroh if they return home
with her.

Avatar: the Last Airbender – Siege of the North

The end of the first season for Avatar: the Last Airbender. It’s a
double episode so it’s long. I’ll start adding in the second season
shortly.

Part #2 is after the fold.

Description: The Northern Water Tribe braces against the attack by the Fire Nation.
Meanwhile, Zuko sneaks into the North Pole to capture the Avatar. Aang,
realizing that the Water Tribe cannot defeat Zhao’s fleet alone,
decides to visit the Spirit World to get help from the Moon and Ocean
spirits.

Avatar: the Last Airbender – The Deserter

avatar-the-last-airbender.jpgIt’s a new month and we’re almost down with Season #1 of Avatar: The
Last Airbender
.  I hope you’re enjoying them as much as I am. (I
sound like a PBS spokesperson.)

And again, would love suggestions of what to run through next.  If
you can’t see the videos, please remember that you need to head over to
the Divx site and download the player.  And, if you want, be sure to right click on the video for the download option.

Description: When Aang and his friends go to a Fire Nation town so that Aang can
witness some firebending, their plan soon goes awry when it’s
discovered that he is the Avatar. Fortunately, he’s rescued by an
individual who serves a firebending master named Jeong Jeong who has
abandoned the Fire Nation, so Aang attempts to use this time to attempt
to learn how to firebend. However, when the firebending master refuses
to even see Aang, will Aang be able to prove he’s ready to learn how to
firebend despite the fact that he lacks discipline?

Edit: Since Stage6 is shutting down, we’ve had to remove this video. 🙁

Reedit: Should be working again.

Avatar: the Last Airbender – Bato of the Water Tribe

avatar-the-last-airbender.jpg

Almost done with the first season of Avatar: The Last Airbender.  I
really like this show and am amazed that it’s on a children’s cartoon
network.

Description: Sokka and Katara meet Bato, a warrior from the Southern Water Tribe, at
an abbey. When Aang overhears that Sokka and Katara are excited over
the prospect of reuniting with their father, he hides a map leading to
their father’s location. Meanwhile, Zuko, using Katara’s necklace,
hires a bounty hunter named Jun to track down Aang.
