@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

I still think there is some twist coming with the Fire Lord. Something we have missed so far. Not sure what yet...

But yea, best case scenario, Zuko and Mai are installed as rulers, Ozai dead, and Azula in exile. I doubt the Earth King will have either the gravitas or the fortitude to step up into any kind of leadership role.

Well obviously he wouldn't be the Fire Lord, just installed in the position as the conquering ruler.

The problem is, Zuko is not strong enough to be the leader of a nation. He's too wishy washy and could easily be swayed by a charismatic advisor. It would have to be Iroh because of his birthright or the Earth King as a conqueror. Nobody really knows the Earth King is a puppet ruler/figurehead outside of Ba Sing Se, so he could either man up or maintain the charade until a suitable regent could be appointed.

Well...There is still the unknown Fire bender who appears to be a young Roku who seems to be training Aang in teh trailer. Perhaps there is something going on with him to be learned.

I could see Zuko undergoing a rapid transition, perhaps not to a leadership role, but certainly rallying support against his father and/or sister if it came down to it. Some maturing event, IE, love, or the death of Iroh, or maybe even his father continuing to regect him.

I think Zuko, if he ever gets his **** together, would be a good ruler for the Fire Nation. After his time spent in the Earth Kingdom I think he's come to understand not only compassion but respect for the other nations of the world as well as finally realizing the wrong-doings inflicted upon them by his own people. Perhaps with Mai at his side and Iroh in an advisory role he could be shaped into a great leader for the Fire Nation, one willing to live in peace with the rest of the world instead of trying to conquer it (you know, the polar opposite of Ozai and Azula).

He's royally confused right now, but if he can get his act together I think he'd have the makings of a great ruler.

See, had he not turned on Iroh in the finale, I'd agree with you. But with what little we know about Zuko, I don't think he would be able to forgive himself for that even if Iroh did. We'll see once the season gets going, but I still think his misgivings will ultimately lead to his death.

There is a younger Roku in the trailer, but I didn't see him doing any training of Aang. There is going to be a flashback episode (or at least, part of an episode) that focuses on Roku and Fire Lord Sozin this season.

I am fairly certain the series will end with Zuko as Fire Lord. Iroh's the only other viable candidate, but he gave up on that path long ago, I don't think he'd have any interest at all in being a ruler.

Well, by himself, I don't think that Zuko would make a good leader. He knows right from wrong, but he's too emotional and doesn't think things through (hence his scar). That's why I think Mai would be a good counterpart for him. She's practically devoid of emotion, but she's very calculating and good at keeping a level head and making decisions.

I think together, even without Iroh (hope he doesn't die but he might), they'd make a good pair of leaders for the Fire Nation.


Also, just picked up Nickelodeon Magazine Presents #23, the Avatar Special. Great magazine with lots of comics that bridge the gap between seasons 2 and 3. Definately worth picking up if you're an Avatar fan.

My reaction when I first saw the young firebender who looks like Roku was that he is a decendant of Roku. Same with a few of my other friends who also love Avatar.

No, Roku has to be dead, otherwise Aang wouldn't exist; the Avatar reincarnates. (That's why the Fire Nation wants Aang alive. Killing him would just put them back to square one.)

Or, alternatively, he might spend the rest of his life (as Fire Lord) trying to atone for that betrayal.

If there's one thing we do know about Zuko, it's that he doesn't die easily. For him to die would require him to do the one thing he remains incapable of doing: give up.

Hmm...Evil Roku is unlikely, as hs been stated an Avatar needs to die to reincarnate, and also, Azulong seemed pretty dang sure Ozai was his kid.

Other developments, we see the return of the wheel-chair kid (forgot name) and thus his father along with an army of Earth Kindgom tanks as wella sfinally pick up on that Zeplin plot from the same episode at last. Given his prevalance in the games, I think it is likely we will see Haru back as well as Longshot and Smellerbee.

... The avatar HAS to reincarnate? ... says who... ROKU... its all a scam...


LUKE I Am YOUR FATHER!.


I can see the battle going something like this.

Firelord sits in shadow.

Ang tries to throw some rocks at him... they fly to JUST infront of the fire lord and he laughs.
"I've let this go on far enough" the rocks expolde, Roku steps out of the shadows. Ang is all confused but then tries to attack again... and nothing happens. Roku admits that He'd been projecting his powers outward and it was never really Ang doing anything.

that he Was SUPOSED to be the next Avatar, but his Cryostasis was close enough to death that the avitar "mojo" flowed back to its last host...reviving him... and making him a little crazy.

Ang decimated falls back on his Airbending ..but can't hold his own ...then his friends show up.

WIN/Happy dance to follow epic battle


but yeah its not likely

Attention Canadian fans: I've just checked YTV's schedule, and it looks like they're pulling a Digimon on us(*).

Avatar will be airing only on Friday afternoons at 5 in the Zone. It will not air on Saturday mornings, or (apparently) rerun at any point during the week.

(* They did the same thing with Season 4 of Digimon. After airing the first three seasons on Saturday mornings, S4 was consigned to an "after-school" slot that those of us with jobs and/or school couldn't necessarily see. [Yeah, I know that, after "Rika the Digimon Slayer," anything else was bound to be a letdown, but I at least wanted to know for sure.])

Hey, know where it would fit great? Right between Storm Hawks and Legion of Superheroes. Y'know, where they play Teen Titans reruns. icon-primal.gif Or heck, even put it up as a pre-Bionix slot, right between MAR and Naruto. Yeah, it's not "real" anime, but at least it's thematically linked.

YTV, I love you, but your scheduling stinks.

The fourth season of Digimon wasn't worth watching, though... I'd have been a happier if they'd just rerun Adventure/02/Tamers instead (I'd still like them to to this day; though it would be better if we got DVD season sets).

However, this is what they invented VCRs and DVD recorders for; I don't see how it can be much of a problem for anyone.

Dagbabit! I need to get the Book box sets soon. I've caught most episodes of the first two seasons. But there are still some parts I never caught in reruns. No chance of getting and watching them before the first episode of season 3 in... 20 hours.

Avatar is very serious for what at face value is a kids cartoon. So I'm not to sure any major character will end up dying. Even if Iroh fits the wise fatherly figure who helps the hero and ends up dying to save the hero (ya know pulling an Obiwan Kenobi).

After the last episode of Book 2 I have no clue where Zuko's character arc is going. He started as a simple foil, but was really a boy trying to redeem himself in the eyes of a violent father, then he became heroic after accepting a simpler life. But everything was thrown out the window for a crazy half sister cause Zuko is apparently stupid and easy to manipulate (Ransack? Crumplezone? Waspinator?).

Avatar is the best thing animated for America since Gargoyles (okay since Megas XLR, but for very different reasons).

Rewatching "The Crossroads of Destiny" Today, in Zuko's final scene, the look on his face seem like he isnt sure of what he has done. So I think he'll end up coming about by the end of the season. Several scenes in the trailer make him look unhappy, escpially one shot showing him dressed in more princely attire.

Azula is very manipulative. As shown with her easily outwitting Long. She seems to have everythgin palnned out three moves ahead of everyone else. Its almost hard to fualt Zuko for falling for her. He was just starting to come around, but before he could really start down that path, she swoops in and offers him what he has wanted for so long. If he had spent more time on the path he had started on after his "sickness" he might not have fallen for it.
