It's interesting that in the very first episode of the second season, they give one of the few direct references to a timeline. Iroh says it's the third anniversary of Zuko's banishment. Early in the third episode of the first season Zhao says "Two years at sea haven't improved your temper," or something like that. So I guess we can assume the events of the first season took almost exactly one year to play out. Also, while getting his massage, Iroh comments that they were three weeks at sea on the raft. That's pretty rare they give such exact time lasped between episodes. The only other one I can think of is eps. 12 and 13, where we're told it's just a few days from the end of "The Storm" to the beginning of "The Blue Devil". Just enough time for Sokka to develop his cold.

You can tell you're obsessing over a show when you start calculating time lines and the history of the Avatar world.

Grey DeLisle is pretty good voice actor. Other than Avatar,she Mandy of "Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy", the Handmaiden for "Knights of the Old Republic: The Sith Lords", Frankie of "Madame Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends", Sam of "Danny Phantom", and Kimiko of "Xiaolin Showdown".

She's quite good. They picked a great choice for Azula.

The sad thing about the whole earthbending season so far (to Ba Sing Se), is that General Fong seems like the one Earth Kingdom military leader who'd really be interested and able to exploit the effects of the solar eclipse on the Fire Nation, but because of this episode's events, he's one general Aang would never want to see again.

I had never watched Avatar beofre this episode. I watched it at a friends house, and I was hooked. That's how good it is. It can turn someone who's never seen the show beofe into a total Avatard.

Peace on Avatar, before peace in real life

I don't know about you guys, but I found the Zuko storyline more interest than the Aang storyline. I guess because it involved Azula.

We learn more about the Avatar state. Cool but I want to talk about Zuko and Azula, was my attitude.

At the end of Book 1 I was disappointed they killed off a great villain Admerial Zhao. I knew the dark haired girl that Fire Lord was talking to, was going to be the new villain in Book 2, and she was Zhao's replacements. I thought she will not be as good as Zhao.

I was right, she is much better. Azula is cold as ice, and pure evil, I love that about her. Though the ship captin is an idiot, my thought when he said "We're taking the prisinor's home", was I hate to be you. What an idiot. LOL

Zuko: (dejectedly) Three years ago today I was banished. I lost it all. (He looks up suddenly.)  I want it back. I want the Avatar, I want my honor, I want my throne. I want my father not to think I'm worthless.

Iroh: (with exaggerated optimism) I'm sure he doesn't! Why would he banish you if he didn't care?

(Zuko gets up and walks away. Cut to Iroh's surprised face with the attendants in the background.)

Iroh: (negatively to himself) Erg� that came out wrong, didn't it?

this was funny way to go uncle iroh!!!

his rare chi-enhancing tea is a natural stimulant. In an ordinary warrior it improves strength and energy ten-fold. In you, it may induce the Avatar state. (The teacher pours the team into a cup in front of Aang, who is sitting at the small table across from him and next to Fong. Sokka and Katara sit side-by-side a few feet behind Aang.)

Aang: Ten-fold energy, huh? (slurps; twitch, twitch, twitch)

(Aang begins to race around the small structure on his air ball while the others remain motionless.)

Aang: (speaking in a fast, high-pitched, hyper voice while zipping everywhere on his air-scooter) Is it working, is it working? I can't tell! Somebody tell me if I'm in the Avatar state �cause I don't have a good view of myself! Am I talking too loud?

Sokka: (Looking bored.) I guess he could talk the Fire Lord to death.

this lines cracks me up!!!
and good twist of the avatar state the directors makes us more excited about it

and azula is so evil

Well Another thing that doesn't make sense to me is that out of all the avatars, which has to be at least over 200 past avatars, can they honestly expect me to believe that not one of the past avatars has not died in the avatar state, that there wasn't at least one battle that was so instense for the avatar that he or she wouldn't have died while in the avatar state?

I think this question has a lot of weight, actually.  There in fact have been far more than 200 past Avatars: there have been at least a thousand, unless Roku is overly given to poetic exaggeration.  It does rather strain one's credulity, not to mention the law of averages, to accept that not one Avatar was ever killed in the Avatar State, in all those hundreds of thousands of years.

But it's canon, of course, so - that's how it is!

Geez when Aang got zapped by lightning i thought he was gone and that the series was gonna horribly end but then I thought that if it ended like that then it would be really......"silly" I was glad that he was okay but hopefully he will get better at fighting.

Wait, wrong episode Cloudfairy?

Anyhow, I love this episode. First one of the second series, and what a way to start.

Not to mention that Sokka bashed Fong on the head. That was a funny moment. Wouldn't do much for Fong's temperament though.

I enjoyed this episode. While it was not my favorite episode, it was fairly likeable.
It was a nice way to start off the new season. A general forcing Aang to bring out a power that he cannot control. The scenes of Aang in the Avatar state were saddening for me. I hate to see him go through all of that, then feel guilty afterwards. The general was way out of line. He didn't need to sink Katara into the ground.
Zuko's story was interesting as well. It was also great to introduce a new enemy for Aang for the second season. While Azula was drawn a little uglier here (thank god she looks a lot better in the Crossroads of Destiny) she was a display of great power. I like the fight between her and Zuko.
It was interesting to see Aang and Zuko have parallel stories once more. When it switches back and forth between fighting, you see the similarities.

962 DVD screenshots have just been posted for this episode on the mainsite. I'd forgotten how cool the fight between Azula and Zuko was on the ship, and I just love seeing Iroh in action.

Sweet! The season two DVD screenshots have begun! ^_^ I can't wait to see what new Diet Otaku avvies come out of this batch.

And, on topic, I agree about the Zuko/Azula fight-- it was awesome...

...But I liked Aang's fight better. Smiley

This was the first episode I ever watched and after it, I was adicted. My bro was watching it and I came in about the time Zuko fell into the trap. I was staring wide-eyed and mouth opened through the whole thing!

This episode is a cool way to start Book 2 on Avatar The Last Airbender. I thought the battle of Zuko and Azula was pretty cool, brother vs. sister.

Oh yes. The brother vs. sister thing has always fasinated me. Probably because I have two brothers and I tend to envision me fighting them. I'd win. I'd give them one little pouting face tand they'd give in right then and there.
