This was also a terrible episode. It doesn't help when the main schtick of the episide, which was comedy, didn't make me laugh once. I didn't like the absurd bits and that is saying something as cranking up the silly factor can sometimes save an otherwise nonsensical episode. Anyway I liked the bits we got with Zuko. It set up his feel-face turn rather nicely
this is my thoughta on this episode as well...almost word for word. It's the one episode in the franchise that is just a chore for me to sit through.
