Sometimes I Shouldn't Say Words

Okay, so I claimed that the long delays between posts were over...but clearly they weren't. This gap isn't as long, but it's still been months. My sincerest apologies to my lovely friends who always read them! A new one will be coming up shortly, and I mean shortly, damn it!

Inaugural Housekeeping Post

Okay, so anyone who cares/knows about this blog already knows why this big gap happened, but I still feel the need to change my "address nothing but the show" policy to remark on the approximate seven month gap between my episode six and seven posts. I acknowledge that it is there and I know it is. If anyone from the big ol' internet does stumble upon this collection of ramblings in the future and enjoy them, rest assured that I am determined not to disappear like that again! Also, welcome, and aren't you glad you didn't decide you liked my rants and raves by stumbling upon the post for episode six? (I'm sorry, people who were already following along. If multiple people are still reading this.) Alright, housekeeping over. Back to your regularly scheduled silliness!

Avatar S1E7: The Spirit World (Winter Solstice, Part 1)

Last time on Avatar, Katara taught us all that the systematically oppressed are not instant rebels, just add speeches. If you really want the people to rise up and crush their oppressor, give them weapons and let said oppressor provoke them himself with his unrelenting cruelty. Also, Zuko found Katara's necklace OH SNAP. This time, Katara observes dreamily how fluffy the clouds look, "like you could just jump down and you'd land in a big, soft, cottony heap." When Sokka wisecracks that she should try it, Aang actually does, coming back to dry himself with airbending and reporting simply, "Turns out clouds are made of water." I big puffy heart you, Aang.

Avatar S1E6: Imprisoned

Last time on Avatar, King Bumi taught us all the true meaning of trollface and we got a glimpse into the constant looming existential crisis that is the life of Cabbage Guy. This time, the previously on segment wants to remind us that Zuko exists and Aang and Katara want something more to eat than the nuts (some of which may be rocks) that Sokka has brought them.

Avatar S1E5: The King of Omashu

Last time on Avatar, Sokka really didn't need any pants where they were going because he ended up wearing the Kyoshi warrior dress in the end. This time, they're going to the Earth Kingdom of Omashu ZOMG BUMI SHOW ME THE BUMI.

Avatar S1E4: The Warriors of Kyoshi

Last time on Avatar, Aang discovered the second part of the show's title and everyone was awesome but Zhao. This time, Aang has no clue where he's going and the randomly placed Avatar sightings have led Zuko to believe that the kid must be "a master of evasion." This is what you'd call overestimating your enemy.

Avatar S1E3: The Southern Air Temple

Last time on Avatar, Zuko proved he is a Terminator-level badass, Sokka proved he has tons of heart and lets it turn off his brain at will and Aang proved that snow beats battleship. Katara had nothing to prove because she basically introduced herself by 'sploding an iceberg. This episode is called "The Southern Air Temple," so I think it must be the episode in which Aang completely loses his shit after realizing what being gone for 100 years really means. We all know it's coming. Shall we?
