I refuse to leave the 6 to 11-year-old demographic

November 29, 2009

I just started watching Nicktoon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender, as visiting home means I get to bask in cable television.

I think I am a fan of it! The plot’s fairly predictable, and it’s mildly cheesy on the dialogue side like any kid’s show, but there are boatloads of strong female characters, a nice greyscale between good and evil, and even the requisite angsty power-hungry and honor-obsessed teenmale cries and admits that he loves his uncle periodically.

Plus, the fighting involves mostly elemental manipulation in martial arts form, resulting in very graceful fight scenes with all kinds of fluid wind/fire/etc motion throughout. Combine that with stylistically simple but consistently well-crafted animation and it is really a quite beautiful show!
