Reviews of The Boy in the Iceberg
Hello everybody >VV<
Inside this mysterious Iceberg, is perhaps one of the greatest designed animated characters ever, Aang. I mean that glowing arrow and eyes are just an iconic stable for Avatar, whoever design him, fantastic work. Once Aang is finally free from his 100 year beauty sleep, his first words are; “will you come Penguin sledding with me”, now I don’t know why, but this line just cracked me up in laughter for like 5 minutes!? ¬_¬ We’re then greeted by, my sister favourite character, and the one who I’ve heard about a lot from many a person, Zuko. And, he has a pretty cool design as well, who order his ship to investigate the source the light, with his Uncle, voice by the late and great Mako Iwamatsu, who kinda say’s, ‘it’s prop…Read more >
A review (and some demotivation) of Book 1: Water, Chapter 1: The Boy in the Iceberg.
Hi there. I just recently began to watch the series, having purchased the boxed set, and I'm in love. Since I specialize in producing demotivational posters, I've decided to go through the series and do reviews, all while using DPs.

Nickelodeon has often drawn my ire. In my opinion, successive uninventive shows over the years had sunk their reputation into a bottomless pit.

Why hide from children the real world? Why shield them from seeing more intellectually demanding TV?
I have to admit: this show has made me rethink that. Its first episode in under half an hour provides a very convincing argument as to why my assumptions of half a lifetime aren't necessarily one hundred per cent correct.

Plot: Two Southern Water Tribe teenagers unknowingly discover the long-lost Avatar, and bring him back to their village. The young boy mistakenly alerts a Fire Nation ship of his whereabouts, and causes panic in the village.
This is the first episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Being so this is supposed to be the opening to the series. It does a good job at this. "The Boy In the Iceberg" offers a wonderful view of the Avatar universe from the view of a young Air Nomad Avatar named Aang. The episode is beautifully done when it comes to graphics and dialog, and uses a lot of funny jokes, (mostly by Sokka.) This episode also introduces 3 of the 4 bending elements: Air, Water, and Fire. This episode has the longest and most unique open…Read more >
