Initial review: February 27, 2011
I have decided to revisit TEIP today because I have thought about some things and read other opinions/views. I would like to re-address what I said in my 2/27 report:
The one thing I didn't like about the episode was the "filler within the filler", which took place in the second intermission, where Katara and Aang had that side conversation. So that is the only thing, to me, which keeps the episode from getting a perfect score.
I have since revised my view on this scene. In the end, reading someone's review of a certain charcter (And you know who you are), I see now this was not quite "filler within the filler". It was a moment to show what was going on with Katara at the time, confusion. It showed that now wasn't the time for the relationship to begin. It was important to getting into charcter feelings.
So I am revising my grade to 10/10.
