Did You Know?


Based on all the group shots, the Southern Water Tribe's village (apparently the only one) has a population of twenty two people: nine adults (all women), eleven children (six boys and five girls), and two teenagers (Sokka and Katara, of course). However, one of the six boys is missing when Katara introduces "the entire village" to Aang. There is also a single pet animal (possibly a cross between a dog and a polar bear) present in some shots.

Katara: [voiceover] Water. Earth. Fire. Air. My grandmother used to tell me stories about the old days, a time of peace when the Avatar kept balance between the Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and Air Nomads. But that all changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar mastered all four elements. Only he could stop the ruthless firebenders. But when the world needed him most, he vanished.

First aired episode...obviously so
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a good enough episode to get me hooked, so I probably should have gone easier on the rating, but in retrospect, and compared to the more recent episodes, this one was weak, rushed and relied on what some might refer to as 'little boy humor'. Which is entirely appropriate, as that is the audience they were trying to draw in. This series has since grown phenomenally, drawing in an audience from all age groups, from the targeted 7-10 year olds to thirty-year-old viewers. This is definitely a show to watch with the family, and you really should start out with this first episode. It does a very good job of introducing all essential characters, the overall plot, and it includes a few good laughs.
