Last Airbender Vlogs: The Great Divide

It divided alright, between common and sense. The next destination the gang stumbles into is the Great Divide, the world’s largest canyon.

  1. Hey Doug, long time watching, first time commenting. I’d have chimed in sooner, but law school and fatherhood get in the way.

    Honestly, I thought it was a relief that Aang was lying about the ball game. I mean, ever since we discovered that Bumi was still alive in Omashu after 100 years, I thought that if Aang’s Redemption story was true, it would be a little too Deus Ex Machina. I mean, is every problem going to be solved by the fact that Aang knows something from a hundred years back? Also, that was pretty clever being able to hear both sides of the story and concoct a plausible middle-ground version.

    Also, when prejudice is based on mutual stupidity (I can’t think of any real-life examples) perhaps lying is the only way to fix it. I thought Aang’s lighthearted attitude to his lie spoke more to the foolishness of both the feuding sides than his lack of remorse. By the end of the episode, I was soooooo sick of that feud, I laughed to see that a lie brought it to an end.
