One of my favorite episodes from one of my favorite shows of all time
6 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I remember seeing Avatar: The Last Airbender from the beginning, I liked this show from the beginning but at first I wasn't a huge fan of it. But then came the episode "The Storm", this is where all the fans began to see this isn't just another fun cartoon- it's something unique, and it really turned out to be so.

The whole episode is showing the backstories of both our main hero and villain back to back. At first, it sounds strange, but when you will see the episode you'll definitely know why- because they are so similar. Both are affected by mistakes of their past, and the thing that divides our hero and villain is that one is running away from the mistake, where the other is letting it consume him. So not only such decision makes sense, in my opinion it's pretty much a genius one! Letting the two opposing characters be compared only to reveal their backstory isn't very different, but the difference is their reaction to it.

A wonder episode, that is the truly first genius episode in this great TV series.

Recommended 10/10.
