The Boy in the Iceberg (episode review)

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 opening in the series, nicely explaining things such as the war, and the Avatars dissapearance. While all this is true, this episode does have some bad things about it. Namely some of the dialog, ("Your an Airbender!") Kind of obvious, huh? Also a slight problem is how the big light did not attract other Fire Nation ships. Other than that, it is pretty much a great episode. Overall, this episode is great and well written, but did have a few dialog problems.

Score: 9.5/10
