Did I just see some air benders? When the professor drives those people away from appa, I thought I saw one of them use air bending to power their vehicle.

I loved the movie but the ending sucked. Now its another 2 months before we see what happens. Aang really was going to kill them and only Katara can stop him. I liked how Toph acted in this movie.

Still a good pair of eppies, Toph looks like she is becomming more and more used to being in the group, and this "order of the lotus" sounds intriging!

Like im going to say alot.

First of all, the solstice is what will beat the fire nation.

Second, Sokka throught this whole episode was a drunk, "its a giant mushroom!!!!!, lets go see if it wants to be friends", poor poor Sokka.

Next Aang was in control of the Avatar State, did you see him get mad, the avatar state voice said where is Appa, I also loved how Katara got him out of it, she really helped him so much, that was so so touching, another Kataang moment for the history books. I want to see that moment again, O ignite if you read this, put it in another one of your Kataang music videos.

Katara held the group together throughout the whole thing, the only thing I hated was the pain Aang was in throughout the whole thing, poor Aang, it mad me so sad.

Iroh and Zuko, were awesome throughout this eoy, they beat the Rough Rhino's so easily, and now we know they're going to meet Aang and the gang in Ba Sing Se, o by the way Sokka said the earth king, so yea it's another guy.

I love watching avatar and I think it had a really nice storyline. I felt that the ending wasn't satisfying enough to my avatar craze Tongue. And TWO MONTHS WAIT.

That episode was very informative though, I think I died everytime there was a commercial. However, if you really think about it, since the firebenders draw their power from the sun they would obviously be weakened if there were a solar eclipse...So there wasn't really any point in the excursion, though I guess it was important to find out when the next solar eclipse would be.

O yea i forgot to mention that, that also proves my theory that firebenders draw their power from the sun, so that's firebendings origin.

Good episodes. Found out some pretty intersting information. One thing for sure, don't make Aang mad! However the only thing that sucks is we have to wait like two months for a new episode.

ya, two months!!


I felt SOO bad for Aang..he cried at the end, and I felt so bad for him, he realy loves Appa...

But I was MAD when he yelled at Toph, she was AWESOME this Eppy, she couldnt save appa and hold the library up at the same time...plus, she is blind because of the sand, and has no earth to bend, there was nothing that she could do!

O ya, and someone on this board said it was a solar eclipse that was the darkest day..they were right!

haha Sokka was like drunk Smiley

No.  It is four episodes paired up into two "movies" then the rest of season two.

I think there is more to the darkest day then the eclipse.  I do wonder what they will do without the ability to draw upon their powers.  One thing that bothers me is the misleading nature of the Avatar promotions.  The guardian of the Library was not evil.  He was justified in his desire to restrict the knowledge in his Library.

Yeah, that's what I think. Overall I think it was a good two episodes and I hope the new episode is sooner than September.

I was also a bit irked by the promotion of the show, and when they met the giant owl I kind of knew how it would all proceed from there. But, you probably can't attract people with, "But they will awaken the ire of a great keeper of knowledge who is somewhat justified in his anger against them!" So, evil it is, for better or worse.

Personally I liked how Toph's blindness was addressed at several points in the episodes, often in a light-hearted way. My personal favorite was, "I've held some books. They didn't exactly do it for me." I think people tend to avoid mentioning a person's handicap, and if they do they treat it so seriously, when really they're just like anyone else and want to be treated just like anyone else. People make fun of other people in tender ways based on various things about them, and those with handicaps are no different.

Although we now have yet another two months before the next batch of new episodes, I must say that I was quite pleased with "The Fury of Aang." Questions are answered but more mysteries are born. The second book of Avatar is shaping up to be quite the fun, and dramatic, ride.

The ending of "The Desert" was extremely heartwrenching. At least in my opinion. We feel for Aang and the loss of one of his best friends. The hug he and Katara shares is wonderful, although the moment is one of sadness.

Speaking of Aang, it was very interesting to see him as angry as he was. It is not often we see this happy-go-lucky airbender blow his top. His diving into the Avatar State is both amazing and scary. I did feel for Toph and Katara, however, whenever Aang took out his agression on them. Toph did all she could and one can see the utter heartbreak in her face when Aang blames her for Appa's loss. Katara is keeping them all together. She is the true rock of the group. You cringe when Aang demands what she has done to help.

I agree with several people. I loved Toph already. But she is simply to great for words in this two-parter. We can see her beginning to get used to being a part of the Avatar gang. Her humor and overall nature is expertly shown.

And poor Sokka. While he did play the part of comedic relief more often than not, I got a good laugh because of him. And it is he who realizes the Fire Nation's "darkest day."

Well, it is safe to say that the group will now be walking towards Ba-Sing-Seh. This should prove interesting, although Appa will most certainly be missed.

Two really good episodes that move things along nicely, but leave many things unsnswered as well.

Some things I found interesting:

The sandbenders. What they were doing looked a lot like a combination of earth bending and air bending. I'm not sure what I make of that yet, but I do wonder about a possible air/earth hybrid tribe. Their nomadic lifestyle seems to hint at air nomad connections as well.

Sokka drinking hallucinogenic cactus juice. Those cacti looked a lot like peyote cactus, and might have similar effects (peyote is a hallucigen used to trigger insight in many native American tribes). Sokka has proven to be smart in short bursts. His ingestion of a peyote-like substance may increase this ability.

Aang's avatar state seems a little more controlled this time. I wonder if he is able to control it to a greater degree as he moves closer to mastering more bending disciplines.

Iroh is a Freemason??? THis secret society is really interesting. I also find it interesting that when the bounty hunters broke down the door to the secret chamber, they found a lotus tile. Iroh's always losing that!

I'm pretty sure that the sandbenders were just earthbenders that were extremely adept at bending sand rather than normal earth.  In the IRC channel we debated whether or not they were airbenders for a long time and reached this conclusion.  When you see Toph try to attack them with earthbending, her attacks look very similar to how they bend, so I just think it has something to do with them bending sand instead of rock.

As one of the resident Toph fans, I must say that Toph keeping a gigantic library from sinking just by holding it up is badass.
