This string is for discussion of the pilot episode available on the Avatar season one box set. There is no poll attached to this string since it is not a real episode. There is also no official synopsis.

Feel free to post your thoughts here!


EDIT: Folks, we know the pilot is widely available legally, but the ASN rules against discussing or posting links to illegal sources of copyrighted materials are still in effect in this string. Please don't post any of the stuff here, thanks!

The episode was good, however I was upset that they didn't keep the hawk as Zuko's pet. Also, Katara's old name, Kyah, it would be hard to make a shipping name with Aang and her. What would it be called? KyAang?

I always thought it was Kaya...Kayaang wouldn't have been too bad...
Anyhow, I liked seeing how it has changed during development, especially with the seaserpent.  I thought that was pretty cool that they stuck with that.  I said in another thread, that it might be possible that we could see a scene like the fire nation fort in the future.  they kept the sea serpent, so wouldn't it be just as possible that they would keep the fort, or the nuances like the resurfacing the avatar statue to be ozai...I think that'd be pretty cool.

Oh, I loved the pilot! I think I've watched that more than anything on my DVDs. The opening to the show is really fun to watch and the idea of the avatar state just being a power up was really interesting.

I'm kind of glad he didn't keep the hawk, it would have taken away from the 'only thinks about himself' image that I had of Zuko during the beginning of season one. I don't imagine him capable of taking care of an animal at that point.

Are you kidding? The hawk was awsome!  Cheesy

Yeah, the screenshots should be up really soon.

I've got to say that the pilot has one of the best fight scenes of Avatar. It seems that the animators were really trying their best to make it impressive. My favorite part is when Zuko and Aang both stick their tongues out, and when they do that leaping, spinning move.

I'm glad they left out the hawk. I think it would have made Zuko more of a steroetypical villain.

Airbendingfamily was banned for providing an illegal link to the pilot. This has nothing to do with the Netflix question she made earlier.

Now really, it's okay to discuss the episode. I don't bite unless I have to. Wink

Wow Tananda! you are really started taking charge after your recent promotion!  Cool

Yes, the game's plot seems good, but since it's not in canon, I'm not gonna buy it if it's the last game on earth!  Cheesy But I might just rent it 'cause it seems short enough.

I remember watching something that had some scenes from the pilot ep. Everything was so weird and Zuko's voice was.... bleh.

A hawk? That sounds really stupid in my oppinion..... I'm glad they took it out. It would have been too "That creepy guy in Mulan with the giant bird" for me.

^_^;, And here I am hoping Zuko gets a hawk as a pet in Season 3...(Well, I heard that the serpent from "The Serpent's Pass came from the pilot, so why can't they bring back the hawk?)

Hmm.. Remember that messanger hawk from "The Blue Spirit", and "Return to Omashu"?
I think it might have been the same hawk!
