Avatar The Last Airbender - The Cartoon That Will Save The World Electric Enthusiasm

    • Society & Culture

Avatar The Last Airbender is on paper a kids cartoon show... but it's also so much more than that.

Over three seasons it tells a story that is poignant, thrilling, funny and - above all - hopeful. Pretty good timing of Netflix to get it onto their service in 2020, just when we all needed a dose of positivity.

Hear all about this amazing show, including:


A redemption story that beats even Kylo Ren.
Uncle Iroh's life lessons.
Kickass female characters.
What kind of bender Katie and Alex would each love to be... but what they probably are instead.
Why the live-action movie sucked so badly.

BTWs include:


The Aristotelian world view
Whatever happened to M. Night Shyamalan?
The concept of redemption and the tragic story of an Amish school shooting.
Avatar sightings at the recent Olympic games in Tokyo.

And yes, we do end up ragging on Game of Thrones. Again.

In your moment of meta, we explain the 3rd. enthusiandment: Make sure to share your enthusiasms.
