[QUOTE=Tuskin;35953541]Rewatching the original series on netflix, episode 4 when Aang proves hes the Avatar one of the guys there starts foaming in the mouth and collapses, I laughed hard.[/QUOTE] this? [img]http://i.imgur.com/dvKym.gif[/img]
[QUOTE=Cpn Crunch21;35953555]this? [img]http://i.imgur.com/dvKym.gif[/img][/QUOTE] Yes that. Hilarious. Also Sokka you sexist :P
[QUOTE=Nidhogg;35951059]I just love how Toph is the only who doesn't turn her head. Nice touch.[/QUOTE] They animated Toph really well in that regard. She never turns to look at people, she just talks in the general vicinity of people rather than at them, and never mentions any details a blind person wouldn't know about. It's actually quite hilarious after watching this to watch other shows and movies with blind people because they almost always fuck it up. Specially the movie Daredevil. That guy is constantly looking people in the eye while talking to them, casually mentions how he saw something several times throughout the movie, and can't stop turning his head to look at everything.
[QUOTE=IceCKryss;35953178]Because true "lightningbending" doesn't exist. Lightning generation is possible when a firebender maintains peace of mind, separates his yin and yang energies, and upon bringing them back together lightning is created, and the firebender merely guides the direction of the lightning afterwards. Lightning redirection is incredibly dangerous and requires proficient control to keep the electricity away from vital organs, as the firebender only guides it through his body and away from it, never being able to fully manipulate it like the other elements. Also, Amon's lieutenant is the one with the electrified kali sticks, not Amon himself.[/QUOTE] Sokka and his fister go all out fighting with that stuff later in the orig. series. and look what happened to metal bending, something that only Toph, the best earth bender ever could figure out.
Wow I forgot George Takei had a small role in a TLA Episode

One of my old friends runs a costuming company that specializes in outfits from movies and television, and I'm thinking about getting a replica of Bolin's jacket/coat/thing made. However, it's difficult to find Bolin's reference sheet. Anyone know where I can get that?

Like when they were flying to Ba Sing Se (I think, I'm probably wrong) and she shouted "THERE IT IS! THERE IT IS!" And they all looked and she went "That's what it'll sound like when one of you sees it."

Blind jokes keeping it classy Nick.
[QUOTE=General J;35950951]if I was planning to rip [B]all[/B] of The Last Airbender digitally, how much space would that be?[/QUOTE] I've seen some pretty good ones.

[QUOTE=Killuah;35954157]Sokka and his fister go all out fighting with that stuff later in the orig. series. and look what happened to metal bending, something that only Toph, the best earth bender ever could figure out.[/QUOTE]If you mean [I]Zuko[/I] and his sister [I]Azula[/I], they were only able to create and redirect direct lightning strikes using their own bodies' energy, they couldn't manipulate lightning like they could fire. Metalbending however is a natural extension and purification of earthbending, metalbenders don't create metal or earth within their own bodies, only manipulate sources that already exist in the world around them. [QUOTE=Zinayzen;35956559]didn't one other dude know how to do it i recall someone teaching her how it was done or how it could be done, at least[/QUOTE]Nobody taught Toph how to metalbend, she learned after observing the earthen impurities in the metal cage she was trapped in by Xin Fu and Master Yu with her seismic sense, and bent the cage apart by focusing on those fragments. Guru Pathik was the one who told Aang that metal was simply refined earth while he was instructing the avatar on opening his sixth chakra. These two events happened to be concurrent.

[QUOTE=TheCactusman;35956815]Like the episode where Sokka makes the Appa posters and she says they look fine.[/QUOTE] my favorite was when Toph and Katara were fighting and Sokka sent Toph a written note as if it was from Katara, blatantly forgetting she was blind.
[QUOTE=Cpn Crunch21;35958078]my favorite was when Toph and Katara were fighting and Sokka sent Toph a written note as if it was from Katara, blatantly forgetting she was blind.[/QUOTE] Ah, yeah. Sokka suggests they should send one to Katara and Aang points out it'll end in almost the same way.

[QUOTE=Dave_Parker;35958342]I've no clue. That's just what I found.[/QUOTE] It's a fan-made digitally enhanced version, and it's pretty good too. It occupies 18,9GB and I can't say where to find it because of reasons. (btw nothing was cut-off, it's 960x720, not the usual 1280x720, the 4:3 format is kept, it has just been filtered to look good in 720p)
[QUOTE=Cpn Crunch21;35953555]this? [img]http://i.imgur.com/dvKym.gif[/img][/QUOTE] When i watched that episode this morning that scene was half as long ad a third of the frame was cut off so he was in the far right, weird.
Woah I just realized, would it of been possible that the avatar cycle would of been completely halted if Aang died, eventually at least? Like Korra would of been born, and the earthbender and firebender reincarnation after her, but since Aang was the last airbender then an avatar couldn't be born.. right? Or would airbender simply be skipped I wonder? I find it interesting because it pretty much means when the cycle returns to the airbending Avatar, that Avatar is a descendant of his past self.. which is weird

Isn't there more then just Tenzin's family on Airbender island? I could have worn there were some monks in training or something.

I dont really like the latest episode. I loved every episode so far. It just felt like they let Amon won really easy and cheap. I mean how did they take ALL of the guards, not one could metal bend them or anything? idk this is just my imo
[QUOTE=Megafan;35959624]By that logic, isn't it basically guaranteed that the next airbending avatar will be one of Tenzin's descendants?[/QUOTE] I think that the last avatar will be a fire bender and Aang knew this, so he founded republic city for a future without the avatar or air benders to maintain the balance, (tenzin holds an almost monarch type position).

I don't really classify it as 720p though, my opinion of 720p is the HD resolution. But yea, it looks pretty good, and there are some extras that come with it (like the pilot episode)
[QUOTE=Megafan;35959624]By that logic, isn't it basically guaranteed that the next airbending avatar will be one of Tenzin's descendants?[/QUOTE] Unless your parents don't have to be benders to be born an avatar.
[QUOTE=Megafan;35959624]By that logic, isn't it basically guaranteed that the next airbending avatar will be one of Tenzin's descendants?[/QUOTE] Yeah that's what I'm sayin, but I'm going a step further because since Aang was Tenzin's father, then the next airbending avatar would be a descendant of himself which is kinda weird [editline]15th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Bahumhat;35960612]Unless your parents don't have to be benders to be born an avatar.[/QUOTE] I think there must be some sort of bending background in your family at least though [editline]15th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Ithon;35959987]I think that the last avatar will be a fire bender and Aang knew this, so he founded republic city for a future without the avatar or air benders to maintain the balance, (tenzin holds an almost monarch type position).[/QUOTE] Naa the Republic City was founded for an entirely different reason, it's explained in The Promise
[QUOTE=lum1naire;35960793] I think there must be some sort of bending background in your family at least though [/QUOTE] "The Avatar is the spirit of the planet incarnate in human form." (taken from the wiki). Which makes me believe one does not need a bending parental background to be an Avatar. I don't believe it is explicitly told through any other avatar's if their parents could bend or not.
