AtLA

So Jerry and I finally finished watching Avatar: the Last Airbender.

Late to the party, but yeah. It's really, really good. If you haven't seen it, you should. It's available on Netflix (streaming, even), and yes, it's 30-some hours total, but I think it's worth the time.

The thing is, even though it's "a kid's show", there's no skimping on storytelling, and the creators give the audience credit for being smart and well-read. A lot of credit. Here's an example from the final episode: Collapse )

So yeah. For kids, but not only for kids.
