This episode's viewing went well. All the action was liked, though I had to explain how this world has the odd animal life it does. My family is still impressed by Appa's appearance, as well as his ability to fly. Zuko's story is starting to come together, though I think everybody still considers him to be a minor player at this point. They've probably forgotten completely about Zhao by now.
The series has thus far been well received by my father, who is especially picky about his media. The show has been known affectionately as "Airboy" Around the house, and the names are slowly being known. Katara and Sokka are called the 'brother and sister' in a very Doug Walker-ish fashion, and Iroh is charmingly know as the Uncle, as if there was no other. All in all, very good thus far.
