Filler episode *** (5/10) ***
25 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Out of all the episodes in the series Avatar: The Last Airbender, this one always has appeared to me as one that never contributed to the whole story arc. The extras try to defend this episode, noting that King Bumi of Omashu later appears, but you can tell he isn't given much depth beyond his insanity. A few moments of fun happen when Aang and his friends travel on the mail system. The advice King Bumi gives to Aang ("Keep your mind open to the possibilities") is soon forgotten for other, more straight forward pieces of advice given in future episodes. Avant-garde fans of the series should watch for the Cabbage Man appearance outside the city gates.
